It's like one car having IRS and the other having a solid rearend and someone saying CHEATER! It's just a modification that is intended to add performance. Is taking legal supplements to improve your benchpress cheating? It's just an easy way to get big performance. And besides we both know good and well that if Camaro built an SS with a supercharger you wouldn't call it cheating. <!-- Signature -->
     
  4. I didn't really mean "cheating" when I said it.
    What I really meant was that it's taking the easy way out. If Ford would stop putting CRAP parts on their cars, they would be faster and wouldn't need a simpler source of power (supercharger).
    Take a look at the berger SS, 385 HP, 400 LBS of torqe, no supercharger<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    What about the Z06, NO SUPERCHARGER!!!
    The ONLY way the new cobra's get power is a supercharger<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  5. 2000 cobra R.....385 hp, no supercharger.

  7. Why the hell would you want a cobra-r? High ass insurance (300 made a yr), and it ain't all that fast and pretty. <!-- Signature -->

    At least Ford has the balls to put out a 390hp mustang.
     
  9. What difference does it make how much to Cobra R is and how many is made...all hes saying is that they got the same amount of horsepower without supercharging. A supercharger is just a good way to keep costs down while uping the power output. Its actually a pretty good move. Of course if you just...DONT like Mustangs...then its "cheating".

  14. good job comparing a '01 car to a '03 car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Where are we going to find a 2003 SS?
     
  16. All I can say is single turbo = '03 cobra's ass getting handed to him.

    I'll be on the look out for the '03 cobra and I wont take it easy on him like I do stock vetts.

    BRING IT ON!!! Eventhough GM is delaying new f-bodies, doesn't mean that they are dead, or that they suck.

    F-bodies always have been the best bang for the buck, and even if the '03 cobra is blown, it'll still be killed by camaros/birds<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    Only if the bird/camaro is heavily modified.
     
  19. hey ppl there will be no 03 ss or fire bird there going bye bye
     
  20. Hello? Have we all forgotten the Z06? Same 5.7L, naturally aspirated motor. 405HP.....bye Cobra R, see ya 2003 Cobra........
     
  21. Yeah, sure it doesn't. I don't like either cars, but I would take a Camaro SS over a Mustang SVT Cobra R, which is extensively modified by SVT. Taking a Mustang SVT Cobra R over a Camaro SS is like taking a Ford Pinto over a Honda Civic. Some people would take the Civic, while more would take the Pinto. Yes, Pintos were made by Ford. Mustang, made by the same company that brought you the wonderful Pinto. Put a supercharger in a Camaro SS, like someone said, and you'll be smoking Mustangs.<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. 2000 Cobra R....385hp, No supercharger,No Air Con.,No Radio,No spair tire,No back seat.and still slower than the Zo6.
     
  23. I would rather take a Stang over a SS anyday. WOW a 5.7L! My dad is younger than that motor I would sure hope they could get the Z06 to more than 400hp after all they have been trying to improve the same motor for the last 40 years probably. Not to mention the 5.7L is like the only V8 chevy has LOL. For Soupedupsupra I like Supras and all but I don't know what your talking about if it wasn't for those twin turbos the ITR's would be smoking Supras. The superchargers that they are putting in Cobra's are weak. If you are going to get an after market supercharger for the SS might as well go with after market for the Cobra and I have seen it at the track before where the supercharged cobra will take the Supercharged SS. But once again I'm going to say 2001 4.6 with 320hp to 2001 5.7 with 325 now tell me the 5.7 isn't pathetic
     
  24. lets consider somethin mr TimGT, the camaro doesnt have anything on the 03 mustang because it isnt even being built. sure, if it was, im sure chevrolet would have the sense to bring up its power from its already great 325 horsepower. consider that the last few mustangs have had only 260 or 300 horsepower when the camaro had 320. If you can hold your breath till 2004, the camaro will make its comeback and put the mustang where its always been...in last.
     
  25. o tell me about pathetic mr tom, the mustang has been on the same platform for the last like 50 years. still looks ugly as ever. sure the 5.7 liter engine is a little old fashioned, but hell, you want sophistication, go buy a Ferrari. You buy a muscle car for fun and to experience the thrill of driving a good old fashioned V8 car. not to rev your engine and to get amazing driving dynamics. if you want a high value MUSCLE CAR the camaro is the best buy. second, dont ever diss the Z06 for its the top #$%#in supercar id buy right now. the mustang doesnt even compare. its in a whole other league. the cobra R needs to be totally different from its sibling to compete. if you wanna talk mustangs go to your chat place and leave us camaro people to discuss how the camaro is going to whoop the mustang in 04. adios
