Default How to make a Terminator Cobra better......

Well the answer is simple.

Put some Coyote parts in it.

Like coyote computer, 6R80 Transmission, and Drive by wire not cable.



Pretty badass basically tuned like a coyote engine with locked cams.

Made over 800whp on 13#s

Its Jon Lunds car.

Slick setup IMO!

Drive by wire sucks, so much lag in the pedal feel

That depends on tune and they make pedal boxes that make the signal more sensitive.

Makes me wonder if they could make a 10 speed work in a Termi Cobra!?

Now that'd be badass!

I wouldn't agree with that in the coyote I have driven. My BMW is excellent with it. It is something that can also be easily fixed with a tune.

Plus so much more you can do with drive by wire. Power management with traction control, throttle closures to help boost response, keep turbos spooled, throttle pedal % to throttle blade angle rates, and so on.

There is zero lag on any of the newer drive by wire coyotes I’ve had, I remember when it first came out the f150’s were horrible

I just think its a really cool example of how far tunings come!

And agreed on the countless reasons to use DBW vs DBC.

My first DBW was a 04 F150. I could punch the pedal to the floor, release it, and nothing would change. I was able to decrease it some with HP tuners, but it was still really bad.

@GTPpower

By context that 04 F150 is 15 years old......

DBW and computers capabilities are far better now.

Comparing coyote computers to an 04 F150 doesnt make much sense.

Why do you think they switched the 03/04 whatever year termi that is to use a coyote computer?

Obviously its far more capable than what it came with in 03/04....

Again using a STOCK OEM computer on an older car and reteofitting it all to work truely impresses me.

No mega buck Holley EFI or AEM engine management needed here!!

Next step I believe is going to be Transmission tuning especially with the next GT500 going DCT transmission and even stock GM/Ford 10 speed tuning can make a massive difference.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It has greatly improved. I have no complaints about it on our newer vehicles. I was just stating how terrible it used to be.

I'm just assuming he tuned the Coyote PCM with the 4V firing order?

Huh? Its the same isnt it? Just the Voodoo firing order is different due to flat plane crank.

Cross plan crank coyote and modulars would be the same I think?

Thats a good question.

Honestly easy enough to rearrange the cos too LOL!

I would agree with you but i am exempt from tuning(for now) and refuse to buy the $300+ pedal commander

Therefore it sucks....rev matching for downshifts...there is so much delay

I could be use to the 01 though

Could be just accustomed to the 01. It could be the factory tuning. But seeing as I have never read any review that said it was an issue with the car, I wonder.

Are you downshifting at like 5,500 rpm or are you downshifting at 1,500 rpm? Because that motor is a little "lazy" below 4,000 rpm, I wonder if it is just the rpm at which you are downshifting at? Do you know what I mean?
