new s197 owner

i just picked up a 07 grabber oramge gt with 9k miles. its completely stock wit a 5 spd man and 3.31s. i have an appointment for next thursday at tps in baton rouge for a jlt cai and dyno tune. would the jlt be a good choice over the c&l racer? i look forward to learning some tips from you guys so thanks in advance.

Re: new s197 owner



the JLT and the C&L are very close. I like the look of the C&L better, but the performance are about the same.

also check out the upcoming New Orleans meet in the link below

Re: new s197 owner

I have the JLT and love it, that alone with a 93 oct tune picked up 6 tenths in the quarter.

Re: new s197 owner

my friend went through this same choice between jlt and the c&l racer, he went with the C&L racer since he didnt like the rubber things and only one little painted area~ and it seems to make a touch more power.

He got the intake and a tunner with 3 tunes from bamachips for 700~ and the tunes he sells are very good

most get around 25hp give or take a bit with an intake and a good tune, you must hav ea tune with a cai on a 05+ mustang and you wont see 6 tenths just from the intake and 93 octane is worthless without a tune to use it. Just FYI so you dont get your hopes up but on 05+ intake/tune makes a nice difference.

yea so much blood, sweat, tears and money have gone into the hatch but im on the other side of the game now . i think after the jlt/tune i will maybe get a x pipe, 4.10s, panhard, lca's, springs and drag radials to hold me over for a while.
