cobra intake swap

I just got a 95 gt that has a bbk cold air intake and shorty headers with a magniflow x pipe and mufflers. I got a line on an intake(upper and lower) from A 93 cobra and was wondering if it could be swapped to my 95. I hate to ask but this is my first stang and I just wanna make sure it can be done before i get it and what will I need to make it work. I wanna thank any and every one for any help they can offer. Thanks again.

Re: cobra intake swap

Yes it can be done with the use of an elbow or you can switch over to the fox style tb (this will take a lil more doing) I would recommend running an intake designed for the 94-95.

^ by elbow he means an adaptor for your throttle body~ to intake area. While you are at it you REALLY should do the heads/cam (not just an out of the box e303 cam either...) and you will see great power gains.

Re: cobra intake swap

Re: cobra intake swap

im not an expert on the 5.0 engines as some are I just know heads/intake/cam should be done at the same time to save you some install costs. let the 5.0 guys have at it to tell you combo details.

Re: cobra intake swap

decide what you want to do/make with the car as far as HP and as far as performance and make you a plan from there. Decide what et's you are wanting if you are into drag racing and build your combo from there.I wouldnt suggest sticking the e-cam in unless you are just going to stick with the stock e7 heads. The e-cam is a good replacement but its an antique grind and there are far more superior cams on the market for a comparable price.

Re: cobra intake swap

Trick flow makes a great top end kit that has upper and lower intakes, timing set, rocker arms, heads, cam, gaskets, and i think even the push rods.....you need to get lifters. All the parts are made to work together and you will see a nice power gain....summit and jegs have the kit so you can take a look at it.....its like 2500 but its a good deal

Re: cobra intake swap

If you are going with an entire top end kit you may want to consider Anderson also, they have a top end kit that makes awesome power with the trick flow heads and an anderson cam combo.

Re: cobra intake swap

I was thinking about the e cam. What would be a better cam though? I have a goal of around 300 to 350 hp. But I am in no hurry and have a small budget thats why I was gonna just get the cobra intake and a cam for now. The car is already pretty quick with whats already on it, I just want a little more. Thanks again

Re: cobra intake swap

the e-cam is ok but there are better cams out there to run.....I've heard bad things about comp cams so I would stay away from them

Re: cobra intake swap

I would recommend the tfs stage 1 over the e-cam. If all you are going to do is cam and intake then stick the TFS stage 1,cobra intake 65mm Tb,70mm mass air,24lb inj. and a real tune. You need to budget for a tune when you install your cam because there is a good chance you will have idle issues with the car.you can make 300 hp fairly easliy with a well thought out plan and smart buys.GOOD LUCK and if you want I can give you a combo that we are running right now on a car and making in the 300hp range with very good street manners.

Re: cobra intake swap

Yeah I would like to use a set up that has been tested and works good on the street. I may have some trouble getting a real tune since there are no performance shops up here in alpena MI. Thanks again for all the help.

We can design you a setup to get you what you want and we can build you a tune for it as well. We offer tech support for the tune so you can datalog and we can make changes to the tune to get it spot on.
