    Who brings up Mustangs in a Camaro man's forum... Unless we are talking about eating ones lunch... The Camaro is the car to have... I dont care what kind of "power" a blown Mustang can have, they dont hold a candle to 5.7 Liters of American bread muscle...

    If they made a 300 The Movie for this era... the SS would be the Spartans... HA-OOH!

    Depends on the deal. How much are you going to have to fork over to equalize the trade? Seeing how you both are stock unless you just bought yours I don't forsee you going crazy and modding in which case you are looking at maybe value and I would probably go with the term because it is worth a lil bit more (personally I think buying a car for investment is about as bright as a screen door on a submarine).

    If you are looking at mods talk with someone like jayplay then talk with someone here say edblownvert and see which way you'd rather go. Me personally I'd stick with the GM but that's my opinion. The LS series a great engine with mass potential. And this SC engine has aplenty as well. I'd just rather have mine in a GM If you are looking at just limited driving look into insurance rates, gas mileage etc which im sure you'll find the LS1 ahead in those categories.

    The Predator reference was perfect.
    As was the 300 reference.

    The Camaro is Budweiser... the King... We are the Clydesdale that beats up the little Mustangs...

    God I love to read mature posts. Go drive a pullied Cobra then decide. The people responding here do not own a Cobra. I have had H/C/N20/full bolt on LS1 AND 2.8 KB Cobra. You will love the Cobra but you also have a wondeful car now. How about a C5 Z06? They are at $26-30K now. Either way you will need a s/c or a HEALTHY shot and H/C to be competitive these days. We all need 500-700rwhp before we talk smack these days, then you can back it up.

    I agree, both cars are good cars. they both make power and who cares how the power is made in the first place, if its fast it's fast.


    but the topic was should he trade, if it is straight up trade i say go for it its a hell of a deal, but im sure there is money involved? and im sure its a lot of money

    I look at the 03-04 Cobra as if it is a GT that couldn't cut it so they threw a blower on it.

    I saw Jayplays video and it impressed the hell out of me. I dont know if thats a "Terminator" he has but it sure is awsome. I am a GM guy myself and personally I like the Camaro SS and would keep that but I wouldnt hold it against anyone who did trade.
    I know alot of you guys are messing around saying Ford sucks but I believe some of you really believe that-in which case you should think again.

    And I think that you really know that Fords suck! Some of the Cobras are Fast, I'll give them that. But compare apples for apples here. Take a LS1 car and but a blower on it, Its GAME OVER! Motor for Motor the LS1 are a better car and I think you will agree. add in the mix of a blower and your not talking comparables here. Just my 2 cents...........

    Kinda sounds like the Mustang GT owners...

    "Take away the 1.1 liter advantage of the LS1 and what do you get?"



    Supercharge an LS1 = $6,000 and 440 RWHP
    Pulley, exhaust, tune a Cobra = $1,000 and 450RWHP



    I don't defend either side, but the whole "put a blower on an LS1" or "Take about cubes" defense just means you are looking for excuses.
    Being on the losing side sucks....and that is where excuses come from.
