  1. It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    Your compareing a top model mustang to a base gto how is that fair? <!-- Signature -->

    Because they will cost the same and are in the same class. What do you want, compare it to a mustang GT?<!-- Signature -->

    Alright lets just get something clear. You post 100 times more than anyone, and just keep on saying the same thing.

    1. The mustang is about as far from the falcon as you can possibly get. Can you say the same about the GTO and Holden? The GTO LOOKS like a family car, not a muscle/sports/pony car. Just because it has the rims, ugly front fascia, and badges don't change it.

    2. A fake hoodscoop seems to be your (chevy guys) favorite thing to harp on. Does everything have to have a point or can it exist for looks? You never said what was 'plasticy' about mustangs.

    3. You compared the Cobra to the GTO so many times, and thought the GTO would win. Then the title of this thread?

    4. Superchargers and forced air are part of racing, if you don't like it don't race.<!-- Signature -->

    The hood thing: If you put it on for looks, why not make it functional as well?<!-- Signature -->

    or ill just use forced air induction on this here GTO and blow away the compatition... who really cars how much faster one is than the other, a true car enthusianst would push his/her car to the limits... people feel so proud when thier fav car company makes a faster car than the compatition... but why should you feel pround, you didn't design it, do any work to it... i say the only way you should be proud of one car being faster than another is if you accually worked on it yourself, and tuned it yourself, not thats somthing to be proud of.

    Or i'll stroke and bore out a 2001 Cobra to 346ci, your point? Don't forget the forged pistons, good rods, etc. basically a forged bottom end and a bulletproof transmission of the 03 Cobra. And the high CR and crappy crank, internals of the LS1.

  10. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    Or put a supercharger in a gto and watch it get 450hp. That's what I call fair, because you comparing a car with a supercharger against a car with a supercharger. <!-- Signature -->

    how is a supercharged 5.8 liter compared to a supercharged 4.6 liter fair? maybe they should put a supercharged 5.4 in the mustang. but then you would have the GT40's engine, 500 horses. hmmm, and less displacement. hmmmm.

    personally, i think pushrods are great and all, and very easy to mod, but chevy needs to get some mod engines, at least as options, in their sports cars. <!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    it's a simple concept, they are going to cost about the same. that makes it fair.
     
  13. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    Worse than them f#cking r!cers when they say 'Well if I had 2 more litres and 4 more cylinders'. Seriously grow up. The competition for the GTO is the Cobra. Although there isn't much competition there. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>.

  15. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    You guys are saying all this crap about the GTO, off of very little info, and a artist rendering of the car, why don't you critisize it after you see it in person, drive it, or whatever else.

  17. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    A 03' cobra is supercharged and a intercooler. The GTO isn't.
     
  18. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    They are both STOCK sports cars that will cost about the same from the same year. For the last time, YOU CAN COMPARE THE TWO CARS. The GTO has an extra 1.1L of displacement but I don't whine about that like all of you whine about the blower.
     
  19. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    lol. if two cars are in the same price range and have similar target markets, they can and should be compared. it's irrelevant as to what the different go-fast-bits are.
     
  20. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    First off there is more than 5 k in price. That would allow u too put a supercharger and forced air in the gto. Then the gto will spit out 450 hp and blow the shit out of some of the saleens and the cobra. We could also take a walk down z06 lane if the ford fans want to go their, you guys aren't even close to it. The best part of this car is the sound system, rev the engine and hear the roar. No annoying supercharger noises. American sports cars have always been muscle that means no turbo or super charger whine just the roar of a v8. If u want to run this against the cobra go ahead but make the game fair and put the same super charger in the gto and it will rock a pony like the pony is standing still.
     
  21. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    there isn't much competition there? Famous last words.

     
  22. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    Well said. Although the looks and engine havent been completely refined into a full product yet, the gto, when ready, will be fairly compared to the cobra. As we all know, pontiac has not been reluctant to trow on a supercharger on their cars.(grand am, grand prix, and boniville) Perhaps a high performance verson of the gto will incubate a blower under the hood. I for one hope, they can dish out the power without one. Reportedly the whine from the cobra upstages any hint from the engine itself. I for one love the sound of a v8 rumbling down the road. And with that said, i most definantly agree that that is what american muscle is all about. Superchargers and turbos are great, but its just nice to have a car that matches with them that has a naturally asperated v8.
     
  23. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    This gto won't even beat a gt mustang want proof a gto's 1/4 mile is 14.9 a gt mustang does a 1/4 mile in 14.0 even if you did super charge it would not win it would still suck. Where did i get my facts you ask? MOTORTREND
     
  24. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    Somebody tell this kid that 260 agaisnt 300+ is no comparison at all! Your little gt has only 260 horses backing it up. The gto will at least have 300. I know horsepower isnt everything, but i do have the latest magazine from motor trend. It dosent have any article that says it has gotten its hands on the new 2004 gto. All we know right now it that it will be based on the monaro and will house the ls1 under the hood. Try doing a little research the next time you wanna tell a little white lie because real enthusiests know what the competiton has under the hood.

    P.S. A blown ls1 would murder a stock gt. Ask any enthusiest, motorist, mechanic, even any import lover. This however is not a fair comparison. Reley on the cobra. Its your best bet other than the gt40.
     
  25. Re: It's not fair compareing the gto to a mustang cobra.

    It's very fair. GTO out-classes the GT, but Cobra's right there!
