You will not melt your piston in a stock Cobra running 8PSI boost even if the IC system fails. All factory FI systems as well as ours are designed so that there is enough margin to compensate for a failing IC system.

Even in our VT2-625 kit you can run hard all day long without a functioning IC system. It will pull some power, but it will run perfectly safe.

This is essential in any FI system, as you can be sure that a percentage of customers will have some sort of IC related failure (pump, electric, kinked hose or lack of coolant) during the course of a cars life, and if this is not taken into consideration you will have a massive amount of very frustrated customers with blown engines.
