I have a 2002 WS6 six-speed and not till today i thought it was fast.
when i was comming home from work a 2004 cobra wanted to race me.
So we went at it and he got me by a coulple cars twice!
i have the air lid, tb, flowmaster exhaust, slp headers.
anyone know how much horsepower that would be?
Also what do u guys think i could put in it to beat thaT Cobra.

Correct me if i'm wrong but i think stock it's 385...not sure if that's crank. They respond very well to mods as well. I would guess you are at 340....I suggest a cam and gears for your next mods.

Quick fix: 125 shot of Nitrous Oxide, drop the flowmaster, and a tune..... he won't want to race again....

Cobras were 390 from factory which most of them put 360-370 RWHP from factory. They say the motor #'s were conservative. My buddy put a 3.1 pully,heat exchanger and cold air intake on his with a tune and was 425 RWHP. On top of it they make great torque cause of that damn blower. If he has any kind of mods like this he will be glad to race again. They are quick cars. It pisses me off cause I just got done with H/C and supporting mods and he now has his blower ported and a smaller pully. I made 435 RW and he is at 500 RWHP with 100 more torque and he has spent about half what I did.

yeah those cobras are bad ass my wifes cousin has a 03 with a ported blower and a bunch of other mods and put down 678 hp at the rear wheels. but if the guy you raced was stock strap on a 125 shot and that will be enough

How is nitrous cheating? It's just another way to get oxygen into the cylinder....just like FI or more displacement.
As far the cobra...you'll need heavy mods to hang with a decently modded terminator (they didn't get that name for nothing).

yea 03-04 cobras can be quick as hell.
man wassup with everyone nowadays saying "nitrous is cheating" .... screw that spray the sh*t out of that cobra then report back.

Its not cheating, just a cheap way to get more power.

I just raced my other friend with an 04. Hes got a pully programmer and exhaust. He pulled on me from a roll in 1st through half of third. He instantly jumped a car cause that damn blower. Tourque is everything.
