JLT is a pretty standard one around the cobra community. They also make one for the GT's...and you can get it color matched to your car.

New Page 1 ... it will cost a few dollars though...the RAI kit (~$150) is good...or you could go with the CAI kit which is like $200 I think

Re: My First Hot Rod

Except for the carbon fiber one..it says will fit with some strut tower braces. Reading owns you.

Pwned!!!

Yes, the CF one fits with the strut brace...however, MM now makes a strut brace that fits over the KB/Whipple/and JLT intakes.

It might be a cheaper route than buying the $350 intake kit....plus, if you decide to go whipple/kb later, your STB will be guaranteed to fit...unlike the one you have currently.

Then you won't be able to upgrade superchargers in the future.

And, it isn't that hard pulling of STB's...I had mine on and off several times.

Notice the use of the words I and My in that sentence. One can deduce that he is reffering to his vehicle.

Bassani catted X, Bassani catback w/ cherry bomb mufflers, K&N filter..for now.., buncha Kenny Brown stuff, look good stuff...
Notice the use of the words 03 SB Cobra vert in his sig...one could then deduce that this CAI kit would be for one of them there new fangled 2003 Cobras that I have heard rumors about.

In the original topic yes...however, when Brad chimed in about the strut tower brace, as you can see from the language used, he spawned off a sub topic within this one relating to the previously suggested CAI kits.

Therefore, you went off on a tangent trying to argue against the original topic when in fact you had fallen into the sub topic.

Re: My First Hot Rod

most out there that are a decent brand are good to go as its not to much to get a cai fitting right.
