    I agree this thing is fast, but I don't care what anyone says, and I mean anyone, this car is not STOCK! SVT may be in the same damn factory and this car may come out of the same factory but the damn thing is modified. SVT modified a "STOCK" 4.6 and dropped a blower in it, slapped on a badge and called it a Cobra! I'll only get upity about that. Second of all if there was a 03' F-Body, I bet you anything it'll whip it's ass, but there isn't a 03' F-Body so I won't go into that. My point is this Mustang boys, and I've pointed this out many times...this Cobra is a last minute effort for Ford to make as much money as they can before they can the whole thing and remake the newer generation. All they did was take the old iron based block, drop a roots-type blower in it, add some more plastic(since you guys like to think it's a totally different look!) and then charge you about 35,000 dollars to the first selected few who fall for their scheme! Then they come out with their newest generation, totally different probably a lot faster better and better looking, and people flock for it, while you guys are stuck with your old boring Cobra getting spanked by the boys who just bought a newer, much more fresher look!
    And by the way, a lot of people are claiming that Ford won the ponywars cuz of this thing and the discontinuation of the f-body, but that was just a big battle ford won, the war is just getting good, cuz we F-Body boys have been whipping your asses for ages. Finally with this car, we have some competition! The PonyWar still wages on Boys! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"></b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE --> I got your back here homes!!! Like one guy said before, camaro's have been smokein whatever mustang ford could dish out, including the v6 versons. I dont think you can really compare a 2003 model to a 2002 ss. If ford really wants to get trashy, wait till the 2004 camaro's come out. I think it will be a lot more fair with the same model year agaisnt each other. Another point this guy made is that ford is really conning the poeple who buy this thing. In a few years they will come out with a new model and the value of your cobra will drop a s--tload because of it. Same thing with the vette. Why up the hp all of a sudden? To sell an old chassis. You made some good points there "i hate rustangs". Im for offing the imports too. <!-- Signature -->

    You forgot one thing, the camaro ss is done in the same manner as the svt cobra. So does that mean that is not stock? No it is stock and so is the svt cobra. Just because it can kick the camaros ass all over the road, don't start making up silly little things to try and bring it down. Now saleen and roush, yes not stock, svt cobra, stock. Ford does it in house, no other people touch it, so it is stock. As for the cobra, why don't you want people buying them, oh thats right because they will eat your camaros and shit them out after their done! Your scared and praying that not one is sold so the camaro might have a chance at the local drag strips. Well sorry to tell you but they are going to sell, and they are gonna dominate the drag strips for a long time (stock vs stock of course). Remember when the camaro does come back, the mustangs are already gonna be redesigned and faster, 2003 is the last year for the current stangs! As for the camaros having a fresher look when they come back, remember what they did the the monte carlo and the impala...hahaha...
     
  4. Everyone says Ford puts out more HP with a smaller engine. Lets see.

    Ford 281 ci 260hp .92hp/ci

    Chevy LS1 engine 346.9 ci .92hp/ci

    Weeeeeeeeel. I guess not, huh?

    This is STOCK power. No induction mods. Z28 vs. GT

    So. I have furthered my point that Mustang drivers have more sh*t in their brains than a Tennessee pig farm.

    FACT: Camaro F-Body's are faster
    FACT: Mustangs have a higher rating in asthetics
    FACT: SS and SVT cars are STILL STOCK
    FACT: 03' Cobra is rated as "faster"
    FACT: ONLY BY .2 SEC IN THE Q-MILE
    FACT: NO 03' CAMARO, Chevy has been the winner 93'-02'
    FACT: I'd rather have a Camaro <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    <b>Your not getting my point! I'm saying that your falling for a gimmick that ford is putting on you at the last minute so they can make as much money as they can. Dropping a Roots-Type blower does not make this a totally redesigned car. The newer generation is going to come out and blow the doors off this thing. Besides I know my car is bad-ass enough, I'm not gonna be afraid to race this thing at all. If and When the new Camaro's come out, I guarantee that it'll be back to the drawing board for Ford. Why did ford decide to drop more hp in this car? Cuz they knew that Chevy wasn't comming out with a new F-Body, so they put a blower in it and act like they came out on top. And by the way, your still not changing my mind about SVT, I don't care if it comes from the same factory, if they modify a stock 4.6 it's no longer stock! SVT is Ford's little elite tuning group, a Stock 4.6 V8 is a GT! Don't try to comment back on that, I'm not going to change my mind, and yeah I will agree SS are modified V8's too, but not as much as this hunk of shit!</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->
    you are an idiot. the car is stock. To make more horsepower for the camaro chevy puts high flowing heads on the engine, heads which flow better then most ford heads, because of this is the camaro no longer stock? NO it is stock and buy the way someone else said a saleen mustang was not stock either but guess what, it is a stock saleen mustang built at a saleen factory. also people are not getting conned here, many people like this body style a lot and would prefer it to a newer version. </b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->

    You're correct on one thing, the svt cobra is a stock car. Since everything is done by ford at ford plants, how could it not be stock?!? I really don't understand "i hate rustangs" reasoning on this. As far as companies like saleen and roush, they are modded cars. They are very well done modded cars, but they are modded cars. Since they don't make their own cars (ford makes the mustang), they only add things to it. I'll say it once again for all the people out their who don't listen very well (i hate rustangs), the svt is a stock ford car, the camaro ss is a stock chevy car, nuff said.</b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE -->
    saleen actaully practically rebuilds the mustangs they make. Some have a 351 and others the dohc. As far as the body, just look at some of the models and you will see that saleen makes and uses their own body kits. Also the suspension is totally saleen parts and the same may be said of the engine and its components, even the interior is different from a factory ford mustang. I only say this because for these reasons i think you can a saleen mustang a "stock" car. On the other hand steeda, roush, keenybrown and those mustangs were you actually ship them your car i would call modified.

    With the current output of both engines the mustang would win.

  12. But in all honesty, I am excited to get new blood on the road. I am so fu*king sick and tired of hearing pop-corn machine and bumblebee honda's. Lets get the American muscle back on the roadways!!
    The new SVT will be a fun race against my 01'SS.

  13. Looking your 1st post, you're really angry...

    But lets go...

    Your 1st link is about the Mustang SVT...390 bhp OK
    Your 2nd link isn't working...
    Your 3rd link is to show us a 325 bhp Camero and are you happy ?

    I didn't get it !
    Excuse me, it's 65bhp LESS !

    It's 20% MORE !!!

    It's a small 4cyl car, MORE !

    With 65 hp I move an small car with much more weight than 350lbs !!! There are versions of Ford Kas with 65 HP that can reach 0-60 in 13sec.
    These are shit times but its 65 hp moving a car to 60 !

    And about torque ? It's 40lbs MORE !

    And you're just showing an out-of-sale '01 camero SS slower...

    And about my name, at least, I own a name... and you ?

    Do you want to talk about names ? Good !

    What's SS ? SuperShrimp ? (since camaro means shrimp in old spanish)

    Or maybe, SuperShit ?

    I may talk about the french meaning of your Camaro name and we'll understand why YOU start talking about Rick Martin fantasies (camaro means 'male/boy' friend in old french...)

    But please don't start with personal offences or we both will be talking like two dumbasses...


    Now, come on, the only SuperSport car in america is the Viper.

    Maybe you want to include the vette ? Ok, i'll not fight for that...

    But a Camero ?

    This 'SS' decal should be forsaken...(or used only in vettes)

    Oh, I almost forgot ! I'm glad to see that GM guys are really angry...<!-- Signature -->

    the vette is quicker and it doesnt need a supercharger to do it. put a supercharger on a vette and this mustang really couldnt keep up with it. this car wasnt even built to compete with a vette, anyway. if it was they would produce more than 300 of them. there are tens of thousands of vettes on the road. and ford has no mass-produced cars that are able to compete with it. im not saying that this is a sucky car or that it is slow. obviously this is a very fast car. but thats what happens when you put a supercharger on a car, it makes it go faster. im just saying that its not a car that everybody is going to be able to have. (unlike a corvette). please dont accuse me of being a ford hater. i like fords. its just a fact that they are not as fast as chevys. i know from experience.
     
  17. I would like to congradulate the last mans post. Seems like the only real person who was hatein in here was that guy who talked s--t about the camaro name. Ford does have a very good meaning behind its name though. stands for FOUGHT OFF RECALL DEMAND!!!! I guess that since the mustangs have been eatin the camaro's dust since 67, it would only be proper for them to spend just a little time on top. All i can say is watch your back ford!

We just laugh at your pathetic little attempts to get our attention. I put forth the question, would the cobra still hang with the current ss if you take off the cheesy supercharger??

  18. Chevelle guy, you are the idiot. They are not making 300 of them. The '03 Cobra is not a limited edition car. They sold 8,000 2001s per/year and the 2003 should be the same.

    And torque? It has 300 ft. lbs. of torque starting at 2000RPMs all the way to redline at 6500RPMs. I guess you should read a book, because Roots type blowers are great for low-end torque and power throughout all RPMs, but I guess you already knew that.

  20. WHAT ARE U GUYS FUCKING ENGINEERS? HOMEBOY'S RIGHT, THE NEW WAR IS AMERICAN MUSCLE VS. IMPORTED SHIT. SO LET'S ALL GO OVER TO THE HONDA FORUMS AND TALK SHIT. SOUND GOOD?<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. OK, enough with the nonsense. All American car makers have something great to offer, especially in recent developments. The 2003 Cobra IS the best performance buy since the Corvette Z06. When I say performance buy I'm speaking about the performance value for your money.

    Since I like both Ford and Chevy I am capable of giving well thought opinions without bias. Allow me to make a couple points here

    The standard C5 Corvette IS still the superior vehicle. There is a very good chance the 03 Cobra will be able to beat it in the 1/4 mile, but it will ONLY be in the 1/4 mile and not by very much. The Corvette is about 500-600 pounds lighter, it handles much better, has a better stoping distance, it's more aerodynamic (drag is about 0.29), better weight distribution, has many more added amenities, and a much faster top speed. The 03 Cobra will be electronically limited to 145-155 mph (I don't remember which) due to structural integrity.

    By the way, you can always add power to a car but shedding axtra weight is a *****. The standard C5 Procharger kit creates 535 horsepower on a (stock) Corvette and is upgradable to 750 horsepower. Sure, you can increase boost on the Cobra, but again what will you do about the weight?

    That being said the 03 Cobra will terrorize any F-body out there that is in stock form. That's just the fact that Chevy boys are going to have to get used to.

    Back to the 03 Cobra vs C5 Corvette issue. The Corvette is still the superior vehicle all things considered. But of course, you do pay for it. <!-- Signature -->

    Great points Seans Vette. Also here is that site I found about that supercharger for the vette. Its for the stock LS1 engine, and you don't need to modify the hood.

  24. ford makes a 5.8 liter engine people drop in mustangs all the time. They switched to the 4.6 for the dohc and to stay up to date with engine manufacturing and get away from pushrods. This new cobra is an awesome car. THe blower is not unfair horspeower it comes stock and you can throw a procharger (replacing the stock roots blower) along with heads and anything else you want into the car. we should be talking/comparing cars in stock form, not what ifs and in stock form this cobra is awesome and in my opinion will smoke SS comaros but most likely not a new corvette although the race would be damn close.
     
  25. I just wanted to also say that if you took the price difference between a GT/cobra mustang and a corvette and reinvested it in the car ie. heads, blower, cam, etc.. you have a much faster car. Im talking bigger horspower numbers here and not arguing that it would handle on the same levelas the vette although if you toyed with the suspension it could compete/beat the vette at a investment price in parts below the corvettes sticker price. Id like to note you could do they same with a camaro with their cute fake dual exhausts which many of you were probably already thinking. but like i said we should compare cars in stock form not by what you can do to it because then it becomes an argument on the size of your wallet not the car.
