What's your budget? Start with a exhaust first then move on to CAI,pulley swap and tune.

Check this out for some good info.

Terminator FAQs

You are gonna want to invest in some of this also.

Pulley swap,intake,tune and exhaust wont put you over 500. It will get you in the 470 or so whp range.

More like 330-340ish... 365 is less than 7% drivetrain loss.

They were underrated. Some say it was because of the screw up on the 99 Cobra.

sounds good, you must be VERY CAREFUL in what you do, if you are not the tune will be off and BAM new engine needed. I would research fully and get an idea of what works/what doesnt and a route to go down to get to your given goal.

Find out whats been done, do a leak down test, then do a full fluid change etc (oil, trans, rear, coolant, supercharger oil, fuel filter, etc all the regular stuff).

Inspect/replace plugs all that fun stuff

then you will know where you are at and you can start fresh. PM me or post up any specific questions, ive been reading up since 06 so there are tons I dont know but I can help you find out if I dont

Do i have to have the car dyno tunes or can bama tunes tune it? I have an scr live wire tuner and i thought it might would work on the cobra with new tunes but not 100% sure

I would have it dyno tuned because its blown and you'll see more of a benefit with a dyno tune over an email tune.
