Re: SS has nothing on the 03 Cobra

Discussion in '2001 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe' started by JESTERFIELD, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. I agree, comparing a 2001 Camaro SS to a 2003 Mustang Cobra is wrong. So is comparing a 2002 Corvette Z06 to a 2000 Mustang Cobra R. Th 5.4L V8 in the Cobra R is the best engine I have seen in a long time from an American Car. It makes mor power per liter than the Z06. Sure the Cobra R costs $54000, but I saw the sticker price on a Corvete was $52000, and it wasn't even a Z06. A Mustang Cobra is a better performance value than a Camaro SS. The Cobra costs $29000 and the Camaro SS costs $32000. Wit the $3000 you save, you can get exhaust, intake, and computer mods, plus killer stereo system. That is why Mustangs outsell Camaros.

    I would half to say chevys 5.7 is probably the best engine ever built in america. Look at the cobra R engine... its all DOHC 4 valves per cilinder. its a high tech eninge. But look at the 350, its a simple pushrod OHV v8 making 405 ponies.

    You think the LS6 is better because of 20 more ponies? A couple bolt-ons and the Cobra is up by those 20. They are both great engines, at the time when the Cobra R came out, they both had 385. If they made a new 5.4L it would have more than 385 too, not to mention it's much more tunable.<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. A 2001 Cobra R, would smoke this car, same as a 2001 Saleen, and this car is ug', I think a 2000 Cobra could smoke this car, mustang's are good looking cars, and this piece of shit explains why Ford makes more car sales year after year then Chevrolet.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. ALL MUSTANGS SUCK COMPARED TO CHEVY'S. IF YOUR COBRA R IS SO BIG AND BAD PUT IT UP TO A 2003 ZO6 AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT WILL HAPPENED, YOU WILL BE SCRAPING PONY CRAP OFF THE GROUND. FOR HAD NO GUTS BY PUTTING A SUPERCHARGER ON THEIR STANG, THEY DISGRACED THE AMERICAN IDEA OF NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT, THEY HAD TO FORCE AIR INTO THEIR CAR IN ORDER TO COMPETE.
     
  8. ok guys take it outside..... well anyways.. i think that chevy is making a wonderfull effort .. ohv v8 with an amazing 400 ponies...anyways its a competition for the 911 turbo wich generates similar specs..... but,... 2 turbos... so i give it to chevy... half the price.. no turbos and its owning really badass... for me this car is nice.. anyways this car is a good bang for bucks.. if you ask me and a cobra R is 50 g`s :p wich means that i would rarther buy the z06...<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Ok yes i am i stang lover. But im only 15. But i have loved all sports cars my whole life. My Uncle owns one of the orginial AC Cobras. Thats where my love started. I have a individual love for every sports car. Mustang, Camaro, Corvette, Chevelle, Nova, Firebird, and the Trans Am. My point is that we need to get along. All this pussy R*ce Burners get imported into r country and try to take on American Muscle. We have a history of Muscle. Where do they have there history? They dont. Those damn civics with the softball mufflers(thats what my friend and i call them) wanna race out on the road. There getting there damn front wheels to squeel while we got are whole ass on smoking. Every sports car has had there spot in the Horsepower World. We need to gang up and kick the damn r*ce burners out of the sports car world. The war isnt Mustang vs Camaro its Domestic Vs Imported/Foreign. I love all american cars!

    I like tht R*ce rule. HAHA <!-- Signature -->

    How is it a joke? And what's wrong with the Lightning?<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. dude it looks like every other camaro
     
  14. I really like the camaros even though im a mustang fan myself. I think its too bad they are putting the camaro to rest, but i think the firebird being put down is a good idea. You barely ever see Firebirds on the road they are very slow sellers and were dragging down GM. Mustang outsold the camaro and firebird combined, they just have a broader appeal. The only muscle car GM really needs is the corvette, now that is a very nice car, i like that more than the 2003 SVT Cobra. The Cobra has its flaws but dont call it a piece of shit, cause its not, all fords are quality built. But come on the new SVT Cobra doing 0-60 in 4.5, with a 390 hp V-8 and the price around $35,000? ill take that anyday. And someone compared the Cobra to the Z06? come on thats not a fair comparison Z06 is at a higher level, compare the Z06 to the viper(I think corvette is better). and for some reason people got caught up talking about the Cobra R, the original post was comparing it to the regular SVT Cobra. even i think the Cobra R is just plain ugly with that cheap looking front bumper 1 inch off the ground<!-- Signature -->

    What about the Intimidator SS thats a Stock car 381hp WITH NO SUPERCHARGER!!!!!
     
  16. Only it ain't stock. It's TUNED by the company GMMINC just like the ZL1, tom henry SS, berger SS, etc.
     
  17. Its Mullet Wars time!
     
  18. Oh good call there, very good call.
     
  19. I'll keel you fool!!!
     
  20. Can't argue with the truth, can you.
     
  21. Wow this is silly. Will you ever see GM put a supercharger in a Camaro? Probably not... (because of the discontinuation - what are the details of that by the way), so whats the point in arguing about it. Anyway, the supercharger was the best and most efficient way for the secial vehicles team to boost the power of the mustang at that juncture. Who the hell cares how they did it? The new mustang is capable of faster speeds than the SS. Thats all that matters.

    Oh, and by the way, the '03 Cobra will probably be released with around 420 horsepower.
     
  22. oh and by the way chevs... i love your quote.
     
  23. It was I mean, come on, you like skylines. j/k

    Camaro never topped 390 HP? What about the 427's from the 60's?
     
  24. Actually the SS is capable of faster speeds.

    I think people are hounding Ford because it is untraditional to use a supercharger in a stock muscle car. Look at the LS1, they could over gone DOHC but and new school but it would be untraditional. Look how well they did with "old" technology.

    Thats 420 at the crank, not the wheels.
