    $470 for a brake job??? Dude, get some tools and a haynes manual and do that yourself and save an assload of money. That's a really simple job to do.

    i big factor you should think about is, how often do you see a stock mustang? he must have some mods done to it, at least exhaust and headers.

    u can say the same thing about a trans am!!!

    as for the stall talk... a stall converter doent just benefit off the launch... thats kinda how it sounded earlier... honestly when u launch, its the STR of a stall that will be more important than the size of the stall... the higher the STR rating, the stickier the tires u need, and the harder u'll launch (provided u have tracktion). The stall size will determine how high u can break stall it, but in most cases, esp on the street, u dont launch at the same rpm ur stall is at... ie... a person with a 3500 stall will not launch at 3500 rpms ... in most cases... but after ur car shifts, the rpm it falls down too will be higher, depending on the size of ur stall... so u'll be more in ur powerband (hopefully)... with any stall size a tranny cooler is a MUST, its also benefitial to have a trans temp gauge in ur car so u can monitor ur transmission... just go with the B & M 24k GU tranny cooler... its a pretty simple installation and it acost about $80 or so.

    just race the cobra, I would think u'll pull him. I raced a cobra like that one on the highway b4, and with my A4 firebird (with just catback) and my 2.73 gears i stayed even with the guy... and he has some type of exhaust, definitly sounded like the whole setup.. headers + catback

    2000 trans am ws6

    if both cars are stock, the trans am is faster. 4.9 0-60 and 13.4 1/4 as opposed to the cobra that does 5.4 0-60 and 14 flat at best. i know that the ws6 can take 01 and under and i got a 00. its only the 03s and 04 rele.. but thats stock..

    youll rape him dont sweat it. Just make sure hes telling u the truth and not lying about mods. And dont be intimidated buy 03 cobras either. I know some guys with just simple bolt ons that clock the same times as stock cobras. The only thing that shines in the 03 and 04 cobras is that eaton supercharger. If you ask me its kinda sad ford had to drop a SC into the mustang to beat a car that was already a year out of production.
