    '01 Cobra

    I have a friend who had a SRT-4 with upgraded turbo and some other bolt-ons. He never would race me and totaled his car a few weeks ago. Well, yesterday we were ridin our bikes and stopped by my house for a break. He's ogling my car and wants to drive it because he's never driven a V8 sports car. I decided to let him, so we ride up-town. He's overwhelmed with the power my car makes and loves the way it sounds, lol. We see a '01 Cobra vert at a gas station and he revs the car up. The three guys in the car had to get whiplash when they turned to see, the look on their faces...PRICELESS. lol. 10 minutes later, we get behind the same Cobra. His car sounds great and looks good too. My buddy says his heart is beatin fast, so I tell him to breathe and coach him along. We get to a red light and pull beside the Cobra. I turned the TCS off and continue coachin. The light turns green and we take off. My buddy does ok for a beginner, but didn't drive to the car's potential. Regardless, at 80 mph we had a car and a half, lol. I'm disappointed that I didn't get to drive, but my buddy who swore by a turbo 4-banger now is infatuated with LS1 power and wants to buy one. Ricer converted!

    Wouldn't say he's a ricer by anymeans. But always good to have the power and the blink of an eye. Just curious what's done to your car? Surprised he wouldn't race you at least from a roll it should have been very close unless your modded out the ass.

    It was close. The nose of his car was close to the rear of my car. My car's not modded to hell, just a few simple things. I might make 330 hp or so. I don't know. He had three peeps with him in a vert. My car was being driven by someone who had 15 minutes experience driving it. By ricer I mean he loved to hate on my car and any other LS1 for that matter. Now he's convinced, thats all.

    I didn't mean the vert should be close, I meant your buddys srt-4. Good run either way.

    Nice he'll be double shocked when he see's that the gas mileage is just as good as his 4 banger turbo was.

    No, just don't like when people bash other cars just because of their displacement. I know what they are capable of for gas mileage. You can easily get 28-30 highway in an ls1. Nothing wrong with that.

    Just for the record, I wasn't bashing the SRT-4. Who cares about the displacement? ANY car can be made to be fast. It looks like a car that a chick would drive. Do I like them? HELL NO. Hate them. This thread had nothing to do with an SRT-4. Just the fact that someone who didn't really respect the power of an LS1 does a 180 after driving it and seeing it perform. To each his own, but this is a site for LS1's. Hope I don't offend anyone else...

    Don't quite get how you really figure that out when they both had 320hp 99 and 01 and weigh about 250-300hp less. Wouldn't be badly at all. Realistically the cobra should easily beat a stock ls1. I know the 99's were overated on their hp but still are lighter by a great deal.

    every race ive seen between pre03 cobras and ls1s the ls1s always seem to walk... even when both are bone stock, i have 2 friends with pre-03 cobras, ones got intake and catback and the other one has full exhaust and my buddy with a 02 trans am (non ws6) m6 with just a k&n filter does them dirty every race

    ^^^How much torque did those 4.6s make? That was the difference, I believe.

    And to the OP, I've had a few Honda people drive my car, and they saw the light also. They always talk about how it has instant torque, at any RPM. Nice conversion!

    Maybe your friends just can't drive period. Doesn't help that those cobras have shit for gears in them. There so fucking tall it's pointless. I understand a company wants to mix fuel economy with performance but the 99 and 01 gears are like being in 6th gear all day.

    320 for torque. Honda people? Lol. Putting 500hp in a honda is kinda pointless. What are you going to run? 13.8 at 140.............

    They run high 13's. So it should be close if its an auto ls1. Put a set of gears in them and there neck and neck with a m6. Do the weight/hp ratio and that's all you need to figure it out. Which is better? I am a little partial, but I still think they are great motors and good cars. The stock 2v that came in the gt's is garbage in my opinion.


    On A side note was reading they made 02 cobra's and shipped them to Australia and made right hand drive. Did not know that.
