Significant HP loss

  1. What's a mongoose kit, is it user tuneable?
  2. I honestly don't know that car. Who owned it? What was the "claimed" HP?

    My guess is your IMRC's are stuck or not working. You could also have a bad coil pack.
    Anytime a 96-98 cobra is down on power it is 99% of the time the IMRC's.
    If you give me the owners name I can tell you if we did tune it and what the power was when it was done. Sometime folks use our name to sell a car and we never touched it.;)
  3. That car is far from rich. 11.4-12.0 is where it needs to be with an S/C on it. I'm betting money its the IMRC's.
  4. 11:1 is where I was thinking it needed to be, anyhow, that choppy fuel pressure line doesn't look very good, don't think I've ever seen one like that before. Anyhow, doesn't that spike look like the work of an FMU?
  5. Knowing your rep. and experience, I hate to disagree. However, my '96 wouldn't run anywhere near that rich. 11.9-12.3 to be exact. Anything lower would choke/flood the crap out of it.
  6. You shouldn't choke or flood @ 11.0-11.8 A/F.
  7. Ya'd think, but the minimum it would run at was 11.6. It maxed at 12.7af, which bugged me, but I've got 14k on the motor now. So I guess it likes it.
