    This is why I hate the indies. People like you who dont know shit about what they are saying. I know most other performance 5.4 in Ford's linup are supercharged (Ford GT, Lightning), but the Cobra R is NOT supercharged. Do your research. And to 94z28, about the LS1 and underrating, www.google.com. Also, about the same subject, a member of this site got 321 RWHP in his, stock, SS.

    dude show me the dyno charts. You just contradicted yourself. You said the camaros underated yet some guy says that his has 321. That would be overated. Every site including this one says the ss has 325. Proove me wrong.

    You mean 370, 390. I WISH the Cobra had 490, HA!

    Uhhh, 321 RWHP vs 325 crank. It would help if you could read. Lets do the math. 321 over 325 = 0.988. That would mean that the SS from the factory has 1.2 percent drivetrain loss. Point proved. And just for you ill dig up some charts. Best part about this one is the fact that it was taken by a publication (that was doing a Cobra vs SS story) that was Cobra biased. 316.7 hp is less than I expected, but it still equates to only 2.6% loss. Now do you get it?

    Forgot to add.... Judging by another similar muscle car, the Cobra, the SS should have around 345 crank. Still less, but not as much as you think. (The Cobra dynos at 360RWHP, so I was going by the 7.7% loss, that is still too low for either)

    hahah that guy got so owned. Stupid Indies dwellers, dont you people know anything?
     
  8. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    Expect nothing less from the great lay zkid.
     
  9. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    I thought the Cobra dynoed 375...
     
  10. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    dont make me get the charts. 360 stock, 375 with free mods.
     
  11. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    Aight. Its just that a few months ago I clicked on a link in one of these Forums that showed the dyno chart. it said
    Cobra: 375
    Z06 385.
     
  12. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    It could just be a random FF, or a dyno without STD correction.
     
  13. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    whatever.
     
  14. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    It's about time Ford made a stock Mustang that can beat a stock Scumaro SS in a straight line and on a road course <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/cool.gif"></A>
     
  15. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    That, my friend is the Cobra. And the reason it has a s-charger is probably cuz its VERY easy to boost power. Replacing the blower pulleys will add about 60 horses alone.
     
  16. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    well like said earlier it all comes down to personal preferance. yeah the cobras faster but i really hate the yeling of the s/c. some love it and thats them but id rather hear the v8 instead of the s/c
     
  17. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    Replace the exhaust and the roar of the V8 will more than cover up the smooth sound of the s-charger. The s-charger can only really be heard if the Cobra doesnt have a loud exhaust. And yes, I have heard Cobras with loud exhaust and silent exhaust up close, and I can tell you that the loud exhaust will do the trick quite well.
     
  18. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    Guys, I put an aftermarket CAI and cat back Flowmasters on mine and I can tell ya. The SC screams even louder and really competes with the exhaust. I like it, it's the sound of 421 RWHP ripping through the 1/4.
     
  19. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    Do you even know how to read? Where did i say that the Cobra was faster than the camaro even though it is (2003 Cobra vs 2002 SS Camaro). Anyways, if you bothered to carefully read my post before ASS-umming sh!t, my statement is how the smaller cobra engine can dishout more HP than a camaro engine with introduced to Forced induction. Me being biased? Not at the very least..Im into muscle cars..and that includes camaro, firebird/firehawk etc. Also..where in any of my posts have I stated that the camaro or chevy is a POS? Next time you decide to challenge any of us in the forums..please..for the love of cars, thoroughly read before posting, I know sometimes that its hard to carefully disect everything because too many times these posts are very long and we al tend to scan through them. Anyways, Im not against Camaro or vette or any muscle car for that matter, just because my avatar has a mustang and that i prefer mustangs over other cars..doesnt constitute being biased. I LIKE ALL MUSCLE CARS

    I cant stand it when people put words in other peoples' mouths.
     
  21. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    I think only roots type s/c make that whining noise! is that true or do the other types also make different noise? what about roots types s/cs that dont even make whining noises? I have heard a blower making a "whoosh" sound of a turbo! I think it was called a paxton supercharger, Ive also heard of a rat blower! what are all these?

    I just know 1 thing
    roots= whining noise
    Turbo= WHooshing sound

    and I know that there is screw type supercharger.....but what else is there.....someone with knowledge please answer my questions!

    Well turbos will make a more subtle noise but still similar to that of an S/C. the sound the s/c makes i guess depends on the size and output. There are two kinds of s/c's. Theres positive displacement and centrifugal positive displacement (i hope i spelled that right). This link should help with the differences:

  23. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    That paxton made that kinda sound because its a cyntrifical supercharger. Basicaly, a turbo with the rear (driving) half removed, and a pully put in its place. It then acts as a normal supercharger. The rear (driving) half is removed, because its no longer running off exaust gasses. The cyntrifical type supercharger is more resistant to heat and prolonged strain, but the roots is better for low-end power. Though, to my ears turbos whistle more than whoosh. Whoosh is more the sound of a turbo's BOV.


    But really, the sound a supercharger or turbo makes is pretty usless. How loud it is on the other hand...
     
  24. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    In fact...the noise is energy that could be more useful in terms of pump efficiency........
     
  25. Re: 2003 SVT Cobra Vs. 35th Comaro SS (a even more logical compa

    Thats what I meant, but didnt say. Thanks for saving me typing.
