    94 TA GT VS 97 cobraaaaaaa!!!!!

    went to look at a guys 97 cobra that he was wanting to trade for a trans am.(dont flame me just looking for something that will sell for more money)

    LT1 has 4:10's in it the cobra is stock.

    what would you think the outcome would be?







    we went from 15-20?
    i spun too about 35-40 he had a car or two and by te time we hit 90-100 i had caught up and passed him by a car or so
    that little cobra sure suprised me!

    Sounds about what I would expect, You have about 275hp and they were rated at about 305hp from what I recall (Unless my mind is going and Im confused). I know there was a year where it appeared Ford overrated the Cobra hp and had some pretty upset customers, maybe it was in 97..?
    Personally I would not own a Stang unless it was a 03-04 Cobra or GT500 but they Stangs are still ok in my book.

    actually i was kinda thinking of working my way up to an 03-04 cobra for a DD
    i plan on starting with this cobra..putting some money into it and reselling it closer to spring. it will bring between 8-9.5G in oklahoma after im done with it..and the 94 will not bring more than 6 or so.

    i have noticed cobras have gone down in price abit for 03's with a few miles on them and my car will be paid off next year so i am gonna see if i cant get a 03-04 cobra or STI by next spring/summer


    my car has a maaco paint job..and every gets scared of that even though i have never had any troubles with them
    ta has 149,xxx cobra has 101,xxx and 96-98 cobras did make around the claimed HP there actually pretty quick

    The 99 & 01 Cobra were rated at 305hp. The 99's had the problem. They dynoed around 250 to the wheel. The race should have been close with the LT1 having a slight edge. It was only a 97 cobra. Was he stock?

    my TA only has 4:10's with 245 tires

    cobra is stock with 275's on the rear.

    his hooked good but mine just made way more torque and power i guess. not sure if he was really wrapping it out to 7,000 though sounded like he was going easy on it

    Incorrect,96-98 Cobras were rated at 305,99 and 01 were rated at 320,and didn't make close to that at the wheels,so much so ford had a recall to get closer to the advertised number.

    The recall was for tuning issue wanst it? The car had the ability to make that power but something wasnt quite right fro mfactory.

    Not quite,you had to reprogram the pcm,but the recall included a cat back exhaust too,I think something else,but the dealership I worked at was not svt so we didn't perform ant of those recalls.
