Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Justin here. As you can see, I have my '14 back in the shop. We're doing a little bit more work on it today, definitely diving into the engine bay a little bit. Really excited to show you about all of the stuff here. And, we're going to do a little bit of appearance stuff. I'll kind of show you where that GT500 theme's tying into. You always hear me tell you, and guess what? I'm going to tell you one more time. Subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven't done so already. You can see the progress I'm making with my own car, in addition to some of our own project cars here at the shop and some other fun vids. Let's check this out. All right, guys, some of you may have recognized this bad boy. That's right, I'm going with the Cobra Jet intake manifold. A lot of you guys have been asking to see it on our YouTube page and I've been dying to do it, so here it is, man. We're going to throw this thing on my '14 and see how it does. Now, if you don't know about this, basically you can expect a lot of top end gains without any of the torque loss you'd see with a BOSS manifold. It's kind of a rare thing right now. Not a whole lot of people are doing it for a couple of different reasons, but I mean you can't deny the gains. Hopefully, this thing delivers. In conjunction with that I'm throwing on the Super Cobra Jet mono-blade throttle body to really let this thing breathe. It should be a pretty awesome setup when we're all said and done. Currently, I'm about 375-ish with just like an intake, nothing too crazy, so hoping for around 420-plus horsepower considering I'm still on stock manifold, stock headers. We are going to throw an off road H-pipe on this and see how it does. We're going to finish up here under the hood, then we're going to tackle the intake because we have to get a little custom there.
All right, guys, like I told you earlier, we had to get a little custom with the cold air intake, because as of now no major companies have released a cold air for this setup. There are a couple of smaller shops that are hand making the intakes, but, honestly, I just wanted to throw this thing on and get it going. Basically, here's what we did. We grabbed a 2010 C & L cold air intake for the three valve cars, because they still have that oval shape throttle body going on. We made some small modifications, and here it is. It works. It looks pretty good on there. Now we just have to see how this thing's going to perform. We are going to get underneath the car. Ryan and I are going to throw on the off road H-pipe from Pypes, then I'll show you guys some of the appearance stuff we did here today. All right, guys, as I said earlier, we do have a little bit of appearance stuff going on here today as well. As you can see, I'm increasing that GT500 theme that I mentioned before thanks to these GT500 style stripes that Smitty, the mastermind behind American Muscle graphics, is currently working on for me. I have to admit I'm a less-is-more guy when it comes to styling, but he's like I've got a great idea, we'll do the matte white on the gloss white, it's going to look awesome. I haven't seen a lot of matte white on white cars. I've seen a lot of matte black on gloss black cars, so I figured well, let's give it a shot, we'll see how it looks. So far, I'm really digging it. I think it's going to be pretty cool. We have one more cool appearance part here before we wrap this thing up here today and get it over to the Dyno, so let's check that out.
Rounding out the GT500 appearance we've got the GT500 style spoiler. We also did the stripes over that as well. Again, I think it looks pretty cool. I also threw on the MMD decklid panel on the car. I just really fell in love with it when I saw it on the MMD project car. Again, I think it ties in the license plate area very well. It just tones down some of the flashiness back here. All right, with everything installed it's time to get Mike J. in here from the Bama Performance team and write a tune for this setup. Turn the roller one more time and see what we're looking at. All right, that was fun. It sounded pretty good from inside the car. Let's see how those numbers look. Something tells me they're going to be pretty good.
All right, 421, 372. The car picked up over 40-plus horsepower peak. It lost a little bit of peak torque, but that's very misleading, because basically this thing picked up everywhere else throughout the curve. This thing's definitely doing its job. The numbers are right on par where I thought they were going to be considering I'm still on stock headers. I can't wait to throw long tube headers on the car. I will do that eventually, but for now I'm just kind of keeping it simple. I want to get the manifold on there. I think with those long tubes this thing should really perform.All right, guys, I hope you enjoyed that installment here with my '14. It was definitely a fun stage for me. I've been dying to throw these parts on. I hope you guys like what I did. The car was making some good power. Can't wait to get it out on the street and have a little bit of fun.
I'm really happy with how the car's looking. You don't really see the matte white stripes on the white car a whole lot. I know it might not be for everybody, but I'm really happy with it. Now the car needs wheels desperately, so that's going to be one of my next steps. I have some other small exterior mods in mind, and I'm going to jump inside the car and do some stuff in there as well.
