    My car (2003 cobra) was tuned by Mike Murillo Motorsports last year with all mods (ported eaten stage 3 steigmeir, o/r x pipe w/ mil eliminators, and 2 chamber flows, 10" pulley lower, JLT ram air, p/p plenum and TB, aftermarket coolant reviser tank, kenney bell fuel pump booster. They loaded a daily driver tune and custom tune on my SCT tuner. My car is going in the shop Tuesday for BBK long tubes, o/r x pipe, and Borla Atak catback. Will i need to retune or will i be ok driving it around and playing around after? the only major change is the long tube headers i just don't want to break anything on the car. Any feedback appreciated, thanks!

    Tuning questions will always be 50/50

    I've stayed stock other than exhaust..many newer cars to get if I wanted a rocket..

    This car is enough to get into trouble with as it is..

    Sadly again 13yrs after car was made most sites are quiet like here..

    However..svtperformance.com still has some movement in the terminator section

    Ed the mod on modularfords still answers terminator section ..but members are far and few left..

    These 2 are the only sites I found that gave information worth listen to.

    I would at the least ck the tune and A/F the LTs will let it move more air. Likely be OK to cruise it but Id ck it before hitting it hard.
