The bullitt intake only will work with PI heads. And I think right now they go for something around $1300 for everything for the intake.

To use you stock heads you need the SVO intake and that will cost around $1800 i think.

As far as HP with the intakes I dont know, heard something like 35hp once but that might have been with a supercharger.

For the K&N, its up to you. Most people will say the panel because you wont be sucking hot engine air if you the airbox in. For the cone, its best to either put it in the fender or get a heat shield.

What did you do for the exhaust?

I bought 2 flowmaster mufflers.... I had removed the 3rd cat and the resonator... This guy put pipe 2.5... Y pipe instead of the 3rd cat.. and went all the way to the back.... But he put the same pipes that connected the mufflers.. I don't like the way they sound.. Do you think that the original pipe that he left there is affecting the sound???:confused:

Well you still got to look at it that you are only running one pipe to the back of the car. You should have gone with removing the 3rd cat and running duals back. Then that would change the sound.

what year cat do you have?

the engine and also the exhaust manifolds control the exhaust tones. if you have the restrictive heads and stock intake and manifolds on the car, you would most likely get the same tone no matter what you do to the exhaust.

i put 2.25" pipes with borla mufflers and it changed the sound a lot. This weekend I will get a video clip of my car so watch the boards for it to see what it sounds like. and I paid like $280 for the duals. And then $75 a piece for the mufflers. Cant wait to see what it will sound like after I do the heads and JBA's

I have a 95 XR-7 Cougar... It does have some sound, but i thought that flowmaster would give a deep sound that i'l looking for.. Maybe it's the way they put them.... I want to post the picture so can see it...... but i think i'm gonna take a while......
What other mods can i put on my car???? I've never raced my car on a 1\4, but i think i'm in the high 14...
The other day i raced a Saleen:D and he beet me for about 1 lenght of a car.. I'm not joking.... So i think i'm not that bad.. I guess:p .

Im working on getting headlight and taillight covers but the head are going on first. The car has yet to be on a dyno or the strip. Next season it will. Right now the car is basicly stock.

My goals are:

8/30/02 start the PI heads with all the other stuff
Over the winter I want to work on the suspension. Sway bars, STB, poly bushing all around. and some nice shocks/springs.
Then in the spring get a nice paint job.

After that I might be done (haha)

But right now im very focused on getting everything ready for the heads. I hope to hit around 260RWHP and run in the 14's.


And about the aluminum heads, I thought we had didn't have them because everywhere I see that we dont. I have yet to find a site that says we do but who knows. I first thought there were aluminum too.

I know you were/have been joking around. I want a 5-speed but i think that is beyond my knowledge to install. Maybe after I save for a while I can get someone else to install it for me.

Do you got 1/4 times?
