Cobra Potential

Discussion in '2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra' started by Mantronix, Oct 10, 2002.

  1. JDM Engineering is offering Long tube headers, custom chip and pulley packages to raise output to more than 500 RWHP

    Bassani Xhaust: replacing the exhaust with Bassani Xpipes and after-cat gives the cobra 35 RWHP. Bassani is also offering headers that will work with the same xpipe giving the cobra an extra 20 RWHP

    Replacing the stock pulley with Eaton pulley(from the Lighting) can give the cobra as much as 60 RWHP.

    Overall you can see as much as 120 RWHP gains from replacing the pulley, exhaust, aftercat, and airfilter. The potential of the cobra is so great that the NMRA has banned the car from its factory stock class. It would completely obliterate the field of high-11 and low-12 second cars.

    I love the new cobra, damn, an extra 120 hp+ with those simple mods. People who hate mustangs or even American cars, even those idiots have to be impressed by this car. Show me a car with a $34,000 price tag that can be takin into the 11, maybe even high 10 second range with such little ease.

  4. Re: Cobra Potential

    Has anyone else seen what Sean Hyland Motorsport does to cutomize this car:
    2003 Sean Hyland Cobra S4 Lightweight
    The key elements of the Sean Hyland package for the 2003 Cobra are a 250lb weight reduction via various vehicle components. Some of the key new components SHM is introducing is the Carbon Fiber hood and trunk lid, titanium exhaust, and tire pressure monitoring system (replacing the spare tire, jacking equipment, etc., similar system to that of the Corvette).
    Engine power is increased to 500BHP via a carbon fiber cold air induction system, increase in the supercharger boost, and exhaust system. Suspension is improved with adjustable shocks, springs and bushings. The differential is replaced with a heavy duty unit.
    Expected MSRP for the new 2003 Cobra S4 is about $60,000. Below is a breakdown of the modifications that are performed.

    She is locked up right now, seeing I live in Canada I don't want her to get damaged from the Cold or Snow/Rain.

    Sweet car, hot pic. Everytime a Saleen is parked, there is always a mob of people around it. Would love to own one, one day, especially the S351.
