thanks

thanks to all for your opinions on the endless list of CAI,s out there. I like the fact that the tunable induction system is not metal and will not conduct heat like the metal ones. I will see for myself I guess. Right now the fact that I have had the car only a month I am well satisfied with the HP since I just sold my 99 V6 mustang convertible. So right now it is like being in rocket in comparison.

JLT is also not metal... check them out as the link is posted on the first page. Just make sure you don't have a Strut Tower Brace.

Josh.. I agree with you on the Densecharger bends, but keep in mind both Tunable Inductions and JLT make a under hood kit. As far as the in Fender, JLT has a better design on the Maf at filter with no bends, but with tunable inductions, as long as you order the Pro-M with system, you can chose either no bends or 1 bend in the MAF calibration (2 bends will still cause problems)

alot of choices, I'm just throwing our variables.

I guess I'm not familiar with Tunable Inductions...... But, that'll happen. Thanks for the info on it.

Tunable Inductions is the new name for Densecharger... they changed the name of the system and made a few design/configuration changes basically. I totally did not even consider them originally due to what you were talking about... the bends causing metering problems, but recently I looked them up again, and saw they made improvements. They still have the two bend system, but admit it won't meter right in certain circumstances, and they offer the Pro-M MAF calibrated for 1 bend to allow you to run one turn without a problem, and also the under hood (similar to the RAI) but the filter does not offer the open end on the Green filter like the JLT RAI offers on the S&B filter.

sorry for making it all so complicated

Firme,

What exactly was wrong with the RAI that it wouldn't fit the MM strut tower brace? I thought about changing my cold air to the JLT piece but never decided/hesitated to do so as he said it wouldn't clear the MM strut tower brace on the 03/04's. I sat the brace down on my car over Christmas and it looked like there was enough room to have a 4" pipe ran in to the TB. I know my mounting location to the TB would be different but I'm curious as to why your's wouldn't clear... if you don't mind me asking

Shannon,

The triangle made by the strut tower, valve cover, and the strut tower brace, are just big enough to fit the 4" pipe, however, the angle the pipe fits, will not allow the pipe to mate with the rubber part comming off of the throttle body. The pipe is off and at the wrong angle.

for me, open track and twisties take precedence over ~10 hp so..

its a good looking setup though

You have any thoughts as to whether or not JLT's kit would fit the 03 with the MM strut tower brace? I haven't installed it yet... but I've got this damn buzzing rattle in the center A/C vents that I was hoping the strut tower brace might fix. It's coming from the harmonics of the LT's under the car. I know you'd just be speculating but I value your opinion

Man I've got a slew of parts to put on the Cobra that need to go on... and a lot of it from our favorite manufacturer

I have the JLT RAI in Comp Orange on my 04' and for the time being it's fine, but I'm going to get the piping from JLT to convert it to a CAI! Reason is for the Cold air from the fender and a much better horsepower increase! But either way, with the increase air flow the SuperCharger sure does scream!!!!!

I would email or PM Tucker on here and as about the fitment on an 03 with the MM STB, but my guess would be it will not fit. Now, as far as the buzzing, is it from the A/C vents or the LT's? Either way, the STB will prolly not be the fix for it. The STB wil however make the car alot more responsive and rigid up front. You can really tell that you not flexing the strut towers under hard turns after install, especially if you get coil-overs.

As far as the buzzing, if its comming from the plastic middle vents, some have had luck taking the piece out, and installing O-rings between the vents and the modling.

MM parts make me giddy like a little school girl

Hey now... I didn't really need to know this

I actually did ask Tucker about this when I was considering buying his cold air kit, and he said it wouldn't fit. I looked on MM's website last night sometime after I sent my last reply and looked at the instructions for the 01 Cobras. I can see indeed what you were talking about the ram air not fitting due to the strut tower brace. I'm thinking like the boot that connects his CAI to the TB comes right at the end of the front of the STB on the 03's... plus there's a slight bit of room above it for extra clearance.

I guess I need to talk Tony into driving "Mr. Chrome" to the carting event this weekend up in NC and bringing my STB with me. Since he has the JLT kit this will be a "without a doubt" way of knowing if Tucker's kit will fit with the brace.

The vents buzz off and on... they're mainly due to the harmonics produced by the exhaust/long tube headers. I guess I'll see if I can take care of that My worst problem now it seems is dragging the convertible x-brace on a lot of things since putting the H&R's on it about two monts ago

Not sure if I am posing this in the right place but I am looking for an original Mach 460 cassette and cd player for my 1997 cobra. I have checked on ebay and a couple of mustang salvage places but no luck. Does anyone know where I could possibly find this?
