For a long time Cobra was the top of the heap in Car Alarms and still produce some of the best alarms around on the market today. They are not as big on features for idiots but they have good and reliable electrical components with features that will stop your car getting stolen.

I used to work in the industry and was involved with the Melbourne distribution of many car alarms including cobra. We sold many brands and the ones with the least trouble and bets fit, design etc were definatly the cobra system over a number of years.

So would you say it will be worth getting the cobra system or is there another brand that you would recomend.

cheers

I have just installed a Cobra Immobilizer (3 point). I needed to do it so Shannons would insure my car.

The service was good. The installation is neat (a little red light near far right air con vent. And you get two little control mechanisms. You simply out it near the red light in the car and the red light turns off, then you can start your car. The immobilizer turns itself on when you take out your keys.

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
