    Why don't you shut your mouth, look at the inside your f-body, and tell me whose car is cheap, KID?

    Mustangs are more reliable than camaros, look at any consumer reports and prove me wrong.

    Ford builds the engines by hand and are very well put together. Why don't you ask 84Fordman whether he sees more f-bodies or mustangs at his shop?

    If you want someone to reply to your forum, you shouldn't have titled it 'I hate Rustangs' in a Mustang forum. If you want attention go to your mother and get off our forums, KID.

  6. Re: Dont get so COCKY ford guys ,F-bodies will be back soon(MORE

    Look, I totally agree with you on this, but I just think that for the mods, this car should be whipping a SS or WS6's ass. But as far as the numbers go, it really doesn't. Yes it's faster but not a whole lot faster you know? And what I mean by cheap is that Ford has the money and resources to spend on trying to make an aluminum block work with this charger, but they didn't it seems like they wanted to rush production so they saved money and got cheap on you Mustang fans. An I know that the cast-iron block is probably a little resourceful but I mean Ford can easily do it. You know that with this block this engine is a lot more heavier. Plus a lot of european companies have achieved forced air with aluminum blocks, and that's what these damn Euro fans try to put on you. But don't worry guys no matter how much I hate newer mustangs I still like ford, I've never said Ford is crap! So if another damn moron posts shit like American Cars suck, yo know damn well my trash talkin' mouth will be directed towards them. Long Live American Muscle!

    I agree they had the resources to do it but they need to get this car before they start working on the new mustang. Doesn't mean it they just through it out there and said GO. They took a whole year to play with this car and get it right. The weight is not going to be the a big factor because it has 70 extra ponies to make up for it. I also heard rumors at it being at 420hp but that just rumors. No it won't destroy a SS or WS6 but it will beat it and I think Ford wanted that. Thats all I wanted to see myself is Cobra finally beat a SS both in stock form. <!-- Signature -->

    But shit. I can go get a Z28 that has a bigger price diff than this to the SS, and spend the extra money, and kill the SS. Whats your point. Do you consider the SS a peice of crap as well?

    Damn this site pisses me off! I've tried to quote you 3 times and it didn't show up. Anyway as far as saying the argument is invalid, it most certainly is not. The Cobra and SS go against each other. The GT and Z28 duke it out. This is about the SS and Cobra. That's why it isn't. Let's say Chevy decided at the last minute since there's an excess of F-Body's left. (Hypothetically speaking of course!) But let's say they decide to drop some Forced Air in it, you know damn well this Cobra wouldn't be able to light a candle in it's wind. And I bet you anything if something like this did happen the price would be the same. My point is still this. Basically speaking, Ford Dropped a Roots-Type blower in this Cobra just so this 4.6 can nudge it's way past the finish line. I know this car is faster, but for it's price...now that's what I'm stressing right there, it's overpriced, now if it were a little more closer to a SS or WS6 you would honestly get some compliments from me. </b></blockquote><center><hr width="90%"></center><!-- END QUOTE --> They use the same blower on the lighting and its only 32k out the door.

    Your basically telling me my point all over again except you disagree with it. The Mustang was built cheap and ford put a huge price tag on it. Read the WS6 forum for the last time. there's a guy on there who built the mustang and even admits ford built them cheap just to keep up with the sales demand. So yeah Chevy fans are right the mustang is cheap. If you don't think a car that has a 4.6 with a blower in it isn't cheaply made than what's wrong with you? This car would be great if it didn't have the 4.6 in it. But ford wants to save there money and take yours so they keep using the same shitty 4.6. If they had a 5.0 or the actual Lightning engine in it, this car would be really sweet and would give me a reason why it's price tag is so high. But a 4.6 with forced air isn't enough for me especially for it's high price.
     
  10. Re: Dont get so COCKY chevy guys ,F-bodies will never be back an


    Look, it would be nice to put the 5.4 in the cobra, but they're not going to do it with the 5.0dohc on the way in just 1 more year.

    I've said it before, but i'll say it again, the 5.0s were great engines in their time, easy to mod, and fast off the line, etc. But the new 4.6s are faster than the 5.0s ever were.
     
  11. Re: Dont get so COCKY ford guys ,F-bodies will be back soon(MORE

    Just want to say:
    The quoting set up on this forum is messed up, some of the quotes that cite me are not even for stuff I said. If thats intentional, then some people need a life, if not its O.K.

    But any way, yes, you could put a blower on the SS, and then it would cost about as much as this Cobra, if you got a good kit. That kit would not likley have a water to air intercoolor, so you might have to spend more down the line if you want to run more boost without making the intake temps really damn hot. The Cobra can be adjusted higher very cheaply and the efficient water to air will handle it just fine. I think this is alot of car for the money. Now if you are going for absolute cheap performance, then the Cobras and SS's are not really the way to go. Just get a Z28 or GT for that. The blocks are the same more or less, and with the money you save, you can get them beyond SS and Cobra #'s. I'd say that the Cobra and the SS are damn evenly matched now. Makes for an interesting time at the open drag strip nights<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"> I can't wait to see this and an SS duke it out, Stock vs. Stock more or less.<!-- Signature -->

I'm not talking about you trashing a camaro, again you don't read very well, I never even said anything about it. Call me idiotic all you want but the only thing childish around here is the child your woman is having from me! But you are right about one thing...I am one of the biggest trash talkers in the forum I hope to be the biggest one day, I never said Buttstangs but that kinda made me chuckle so thanks I have a new word for it. I'll stop with the remarks about Mustangs until I see that damn body style and 4.6 go straight out the door. To be honest with you I'm really excited to see what the next generation is going to look like. I have respect for mustangs for only one reason...They're American. But as far as the Ponycar Wars go. F-Bodies all the way and I'll trash talk in anyway to get my point out, so F*CK OFF!

    Come on people, this car not only has dual overhead cams but is also supercharged. Two of the easiest ways for a company to get more horsepower out of a car. I think the 02' Firehawk Trans Am was putting out somewhere around 340 horsepower through a naturally asperated non-DOHC engine (won't mention the Vette because it's really not in the same category). That's only 2 valves per cylinder instead of four for all you people that don't know what DOHC means. What I'd like to see from GM is a DOHC LS6 or LS1. Don't even need the supercharger. Course, that would be cool too. Also wouldn't mind seeing the LS1 bored out to 427 cubic inches.

To prevent the age old debate from reoccuring, SVT is Ford's in-house performance and development team, they are on Ford's payroll and considered Ford staff. SLP is not on GM's payroll and none of the employees of SLP are related to in any way, shape or form to GM.

    2) Non-DOHC, in other words SOHC, right? A SOHC N/A engine doing 340 HP is nothing! How about a Ford SOHC 4v engine doing 617 HP naturally? Take a peek at the 427 SOHC "L" 4v and it's bigger brother "D" 8v (Doing 657 HP naturally) sometime. Better yet, find a 64-65 Galaxie 500 with one and go for a test drive some time. It will make your Firehawk look like a go-kart.

    3) You cannot bore an LS1 past .005" due to cylinder wall restrictions (They are incredibly too thin).<!-- Signature -->

    You right ! The price/performance of this car is unbeatable.

    People who talks trash about this car never went to buy a new car.

    There's no reason to buy a vette with this car on the market...

  23. Hey this car is pretty nice

    Im not to fond of mustangs since i see them everywhere but this one is pretty refined from the previous cobra. Looks like it gained a good power boost and a bit more updated styling. When is Ford going to totally redesign it? Just refine the interior and I'll like this car more. But man 390 hp and 390 torque will kick some ass

    Listen, I gotta a couple words to drop. Here it is plain and simple: Ford beat Chevy in the Pony Challenge, but can you tell me when the hell Ford is gonna produce a SPORTS car for fifty years, keep selling it and be the American icon of a SPORTS (not a muscle pony car) cars. uh, gee , lemme think NEVER. And by the way 84Ford Man, ya got good replies and points, but for the love of god noone cares bout ur stupid ancient rocket project, keep the hick garage lick talk to urself, k? Yeah and I gotta a 1956 vette which I'm restoring.... Mods. are: NO-One friggen cares. Peace, Vettes and M3's -4- Life.
    P.S. When I see a Mustang on the road, cobra, GT, femrod, whatever its just another normal type day when I see a Vette comin' at me on the road, 40 mph, 100 mph, Z06, straight-up vette, whatever, I remember it cuz its elegance grace and power.

    Any pics of this Vette you are restoring? I would love to see them <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    As for my "ancient rocket", I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it. Ask The Frenchtown Flyers, world reknown drag car makers, ask them what engine they've used in their most successful dragsters. Then think twice about calling what I am building, an ancient rocket, because this ancient rocket may just fly by you one night and you'll never see it coming.<!-- Signature -->
