Okay so I got my 97 cobra in 06 drove it for one summer before
It got a rod knock!!!! Guy that sold it to me didn't tell me it didn't have an air filter
So I'm thinking that had some to do wit it but anyways in 07 took it to dss comp.
In St Charles. got everything rebuilt nd even stroked it =] they sent out
My heads to get p&p! Got assembled with new full timing kit new
High volume oil pump so brought it home in winter of 08 droped it in
Long story short overheated took it to Tom wit nitrous pig in darien Wi. To get it fixed
Nd checked put in lower temp thermostat "fixed my clutch" cause it would
Shake at letting off the clutch but brought it home test drove it nd
It was still shaking nd felt like it wasn't running right!!! Haven't drove
It in 3 years someone please help Tom also said it
It felt like it needed a tune but idk who to trust


I have receipts of everything done to it I just need
Some to check it out nd tell m if I need a tune or if anything is wrong
Cause I don't want to break the motor again specially now
That it cost me almost 10 grand.
Let me know if you know of someone good that can help me out!!!

Can be reached at [email protected] or pm for my number

Thanks

we tune over 300 cars a year, have an inhouse dyno, and are an authorized retailer for DSS.. I have been with DSS for over 15yrs and they send a majority of their cars over to me for installs and tuning... Give us a call if we can help.

thanks bob
