View Full Version : Must have Mods

10-24-2003, 12:19 AM
I am new to the club and the Cobra. I just bought an 03 SVT 10th Anniversary Black/Black Convert. WOW, I can't stop smiling. I live in Denver and want to know which mods are a must. I have already purchased a Diablo Predator, but want to know what to do next. There is so much out there, and so many opinions it can be confusing. The last time I did this was with a 1987 Buick Grand National and there seemed to be a standard set of mods every body did, without fail. I'm looking for a little help. Thanks.

Focus on flowing more air at first. Here was the sequence of my mods and some prices/hp added that manufacturers claim

1) Cold Air Kit , about $200, 15+ hp
2) Cat-Back Exhaust, Borla - pricey but worth it, $800+, 35+hp
3) 2.93 pulley & Diablo Chip, $300, 60+hp

With the mods above I have dynoed at 426rwhp/440 torque. My next steps are:

-Equal length headers, about $500
-Xpipe with high-flow Cats, about $450
-Kenne Belle Blower, $3900

Flyn high again

CAI, cat back exhaust, shifter are the first mods most people make. Pulley and chip/Predator give big power cheaply but may void your warranty.

Predator performance tune
