    yeah but that really only goes for the newer ones 03-04. all the other cobras are a joke. i have raced a hand full of cobras 94 and up and beat them all in either my camaro or srt6. i have a friend i went to school with he had a 94 newly rebuilt full exhuast intake and his best run was a 14.9 . he had like a 2.0 60 foot time and i live in michigan so im close to sea level. ford sucks go chevy

    the thing is this, lose back pressure and you lose low end torque but gain peak HP. The car will feel slower with less backpressure but will run faster. The low end torque loss isn't a factor for guys with standards and stalled autos cause you can launch higher than the rpms where you lost torque

    I know it's not the same car, but my friend has a 95 cobra w/ a gt40 crate and a vortech sc, and a bunch more mods, but he wont tell me, built to drag, he said around 800 hp to the crank

    and I have a friend he claims to be Elvis.
    800hp seems a little too much, more like 600-650 to crank.. if he has heads/cam, vortec s/c
    intercooler and 200 shot nitros.

    they run the same as stock c6. the stock svt cobras are underrated 390, they are actually 420,, the c6 is 400hp but 200-300 lbs less.. It usually is like this:
    for every 100lb, one needs to have an additional 10-12hp to compensate.
    so Cobra svt and c6 do run same times 2.8-2.7 at 1/4 mi.

    I agree. stock svt cobras have a shitty s/c pulley, once u change that I heard 50-60rwhp increase. that's the single most dramatic mod for the cheap $ for them..
    after that, the mods are pretty much the same as LS1, LS2 etc.. too bad they only pull 12.7 stock with a s/c,,, hahah if u slap an s/c on a stock LS1 it will do 12.4-12.3 easy...

    like the supras. ooh they are so nice,, blah blah, dude they have a twin turbo and depending on the boost if it's stock motor they pull 390rwhp at 6psi.
    well I got news for you, if I slap a single or twin turbo on LS1 stock I can't do worse than 450rwhp at the same boost 6psi or whatever..

    lets keep these kind of arguments to STOCK vehicles only..... if you start adding shit to your car and saying its just as good or better.... the supra owners get to add a mod....... this leads to infinite arguments.

    yes supras do go up to 40k if its twin turbo dont see why all supra owners end up converting to one big single turbo anyway
