You have got me thinking now, lol.
Shouldn't. That's one of the differances in the Cobra motor, it has the 1.7 rockers. But I can't remember if they're roller tip or not. I think they are.

I have actually seen a JLT ram air intake but they don't make them anymore.... But I have a Anderson Ford Motorsports power pipe on mine, it's aluminum not chrome metal like the bbk and doesn't get heat soaked anywhere near as bad as the bbk either.

Also I have stock e7's on my car and 1.7 cobra rockers on mine no issues, just a little noisy. Just on the stock valve covers you have to take the baffle out of them.

Good question... I am about to upgrade the intake on my 95 and was leaning to bbk... What would you recommend instead?
