Thanks guys. Have to get it cleaned up this weekend.

I actually like the car now. I was pretty disappointed with its performance before, but now it is a great all around car. Great ride, great power.

May I recommend the aeroforce interceptor gauge?



It will allow you to easily check your fuel pressure at WOT and it will do a whole lot more than that.

I pulled on a 04 cobra that had intake and full exhaust. I was only using the 8psi pulley.

Boosting in 5th sounds cool, but i'm not sure it's good for the motor.

I'd like a gauge like that, just a $$ thing right now.

Can you explain about the 5th gear comment? Not doubting you, just trying to figure out the reasoning. I'd be better off down shifting? I guess that is not a bad problem to have....

Oh, I know. I'm just interested in the reasoning behind it.

no big deal.

i'd like to hear mooses reasoning too....

i'm thinking that if you're running
on the lean side, lugging could lead
to pinging...but i'm not 100% sure...
