Good Cobra Intake Install Write Ups?

My brother and I are about to install a new Cobra intake on my 95 Cobra pretty soon and I was wondering if anybody knew of any good Cobra intake install write ups. I would be nice to have pictures as well if possible. Also, I heard on some accounts you don't need to take the dizzy off, is this possible? And it might sound like a stupid question but do the fuel rails need to come off as well? Thanks for your responses in advance! Also, I took my EGR off as well, does anybody know exactly which vacuums to plug behind the intake while I'm at it?

uhh help me out, why does your Cobra need a "new Cobra intake"...doesn't it have one? Or do you mean a "tubular Cobra intake"?

Seriously if you want some real performance gains, skip the intake swap and get aluminum heads, cam and headers...add 3.73 gears and go have some real fun...the intake swap is pretty much a waste of time and money

Pulling the Dizzy gives you a little more room to work with, mine came out when I did my intake. If your changing your lower intake too then yes fuel rails need to come out.

2manystangs, yes my Cobra has a Cobra intake already, but I got a newer one for a price I couldn't refuse so here I am swapping them and probably gunna sell my old one lol. And my car already has a B303 cam, some longtubes, 4.10 gears, and a bunch other stuff .. pretty much all I can think of besides upgraded heads (got the stock Cobra GT40 iron heads in of course), port and polish, and forced induction.. And thanks for the info 5.0Sleeper! Hopefully that guide will be all I need for the most part. I'm sure I'll figure out which EGR vacuums I need to clamp.
