I am looking at a high lift cam from RPM-Mustangs (I believe it has about 500 lift) and I was wondering how much would it screw up my computer? How much will the computer self-compensate for the cam and how much work will I have to do to the computer to get it run to run and act normally? Is the extra power worth all the work?

any cam change will have some effect on the computer after any engine mod like a cam change really requires a custom program tuning unless it is a very mild cam change. I ran with no tune for a few months after my I installed my RPM heads and cam but it was not running great. Really when you go up in injector size you have to get a tune or you will run pig rich

Probally also cause its clean. No body kit, no big wing. Just classy. 3.8 emblem, clear headlights, clear parking lights, clear foglighs, cobra rs, and dual pipes. :headbang:

Actually not Cobra R wheels they are 98 Cobra wheels only used in 98. The 5 pointed star is more bowed than the cobra r rim

But I thank you for the nice comments about my car. I owe Paul Greenflash00 for teaching me the fine art of claybar and car detailing

yeah corey is right. If they were cobra R's there would be a red R behind the snake on the center of the wheel. I do wanna get the Cobra RR hood that corey has, but I try to keep my car looking somewhat original. I mean V6 mustangs dont come with cobra wheels, but I dont wanna put a body kit on it, no ugly spoiler, just keepin it simple, wheels, tires, lights, maybe tint the windows... But of course none of this matters when you are at the line next to some guy who thinks he is better then you...its what ya got under the hood that no one sees!

na he has a stock, someone thought I had a aftermarket also but its stock, the other Charles has a diffrent hod tho, it also looks nice, I really dont like a car with aftermarket things, really when its only a 6 and not a 8. (body kits, big wings, cobra R stuff, Just a nice look like coreys. ;)
