I love it. Still quiet at idle and cruising. Not any noticeable from the high flow catted x-pipe I had on it and stock manifolds.
But put your foot in it, and it growls!
Seat of the pants dyno said I gained at least 20hp!!! LOL!!

Nice!! Gotta love the sound of the ProChamber.

As soon as I get time (and the weather cooperates), I'll grab some video inside and outside the car for ya.
I'm interested to hear it too!
My boss told me he could hear it for a good distance after I left work the other night...and he was inside. LOL.

Couple of updates -

Got the ride height like I wanted with front and rear coil overs.

Got the 4.10's installed and the MAC long tubes and prochamber!
Thanks Fastlane!
Car has more noticeable power and a nice growl at wide open throttle.
However cruising around, it is hardly any louder than the stock manifolds and high-flow catted X pipe I removed.
I love it!

Installed the ACCUFAB twin 62mm throttle body.
Direct install onto Mach 1 intake and better throttle response.

Polished some under hood items. Gotta have some BliNg! :heya:

Scored a complete 03/04 cobra eaton swap kit on SVTP.
Included a Stiegemeier Stage 4 ported eaton.
LFP single blade throttle body and plenum
Metco 4 pound lower pulley kit (eliminates factory cage)
2.76 Upper pulley
Factory lower manifold and intercooler
AFCO heat exchanger
intercooler pump and hoses
alternator with larger Metco pulley
power steering reservoir and hoses
front engine cover
upgraded Metco idlers
pulley bridge
SCT BA2600 mass air meter
stock cobra inlet tubing
Plus all small parts including bolts, hoses, etc.
MMR cooling head mod

Obviously before I install the Eaton kit, I either have to change back to stock boost pulleys or upgrade the shortblock! :)

Here's a few pictures.

Nah I'm over the whole turbo thing.
Turbos are great, but honestly they are expensive once you do all the hot and cold side correctly. You also deal with worn seals over time and the low end lag.
I am going back to the instant boost of a supercharger and really building a fun to drive car but not necessarily a 1,000+ hp monster.

It's funny how much cheaper it is doing it this way! LOL.

These cars love the 4.10's! Can you still access the clutch with the Mac
LT's?
