Post Cobb Tuning Power Package 3

Is anyone running the entire Cobb Tuning Power Package 3 (heads,cams,exhaust...)?

Has anyone done a DIY install?

Please describe your experience and how the car performs/runs.

Thanks

this is a great question, as i am now thinking of going cobb pkg 3 instead of rallispec 6psi boost for my 00RS. they are about the same price ($4500-$5000) but i'm getting the feeling that the cobb package will be a bit more reliable and less electrical bologna to deal with.
i look forward to hearing from people with the cobb package.

You know rumor has it that with street 1 cams and stage 1 heads, you make as much power as a stock WRX (approximately 225 or so).... ask a guy named Cobb Tuning on the board... his name is Josh and he could help you more.

Well, I got to thinking about how sweet it would be to have a high revving reliable engine in my scooby. Turbo is cool but the gadgetry necessary to keep it alive adds *so* much to the cost that I find it prohibitive.

Imagine. 210HP for everyday use with a NOS bottle tossed in for those special track days. All for under the $6000 it would take for an 8psi turbo which may or may not stay together. Keep in mind. It has to be DIY.
Cobb claims 14sec 1/4s after the package install. That's stock Vette times.

Cobb seems to be one of the only all-in-one packages available so I decided to start some research.

Andres ran just under a 14.5 last week with his Cobb tuned and lightened set-up. Search last week's threads for one something along the lines of "ran low 14's yesterday" (sorry too lazy to look up the real title. His whole set-up is listed there. This is very doable.

Guys,
I'm definately getting Treys head/cam combo sometime soon. I was going to go to someone else for the headwork as it would be cheaper, but the stuff that Trey sells has a lot of thought/R&D etc. involved, he really knows his stuff this setup has proven HP gains. I already have the Borla headers/ with a custom exhaust and am currently waiting for his CAI setup which should be arriving any day now. You do have to admit that mid 14's with a N/A 4 cyl. engine is pretty cool. We're talking stock WRX territory! I can't wait

I am talking about a typical MY2000 Vette. I am not quoting times from a magazine. I am talking about my experience at the drag track last year. Two of them never broke below 14s in the .25. Granted the drivers were not professional, it being grudge day and all, but neither am I. It seemed a likely comparison. 12.9 sounds too fast. Would that be the Z06 or something. Also keep in mind that the previous sentence represents the full extent of my Corvette knowledge

From Trey Cobb's site regarding the Stage III setup:

"Ready to break the 200HP barrier without running turbo or nitrous? With our Stage 3
package, we utilize our well-proven Street Performance Camshaft and Cylinder Head
package to give you the performance you need without reducing your reliability or daily
driven manners. On the dyno, this package provides an additional 50-60HP over stock,
with equivalant torque gains. At the drag strip, cars running this package have typically run mid to low-14 second 1/4 mile times in full street trim."

Andre: Your pic didn't come through. What is your setup? Do you have the Cobb equipment? Would you mind talking about the performance. Installation?

Thanks

regarding the DIY, I've had the heads off and it is not for the meek. in hindsight I'd have to say that yanking the complete motor is much smarter as you then have unfettered access to the heads. while you're at it you can also install an aftermarket clutch.

you should know if this is beyond you or not. if you have friends / relatives that have done this sort of work before, it is possible for a newbie to learn but DON'T try it with a garage full of rookies.

installing a turbo kit of any kind is way easier than pulling the heads, unless you are machining / fabricating bits for the turbo kit. make sure that you have factory service manual (or copies of it) as it is essential to properly torque things.
