    THE WS6 THAT COULD
    my vote goes for the SS...the cobras of that year were not to quick...ive put about 2 CL on a modded 97 cobra (intake, exhaust, pro shifter) when i was stock...they are low to mid 14 sec cars....with heads and cam i imagine they would be about a mid to low 13 sec car. ive seen a heads and cam 96 cobra go 13.6

    I highly doubt the cobra would have ported heads and cams. That would be an easy 400+ hp. What are the rest of the mods?

    A lot of people don't touch the heads and cams on a 4V modular. Why? They got 4V per cylinder, plenty of stock flow, and enough flow for a supercharger. Plus, the supercharger adds 50% more power, vs. like 10% with a heads/cams swap??? WITH similar cost. Are you sure about that?

    Anyway, without a supercharger, it is going to be hard for that snake to keep up with a H/C LS1. Even with the supercharger.

    Hmm, I saw a 98 cobra with 4.10's, full exhaust go low eights on motor

    1/8th mile

    That has to be at least low 13's if it was the 1/4.

    That's proof right there. Yes sir.

    Using your judgement measure, I guess all those F-Body LS1's I see running 9's and 14's would mean the LS1 sux.

    Bob Cosby holds the NMRA record for NA 4V class where the only mods are basic bolt-ons and drive train and he's well into the 11's.

    There's not a lot you can buy today as far as heads and cams. Cams have been out a couple of years at most. Someone could have gotten special cams made but for the general car guy they haven't been available. As far as heads, I think maybe there is one company making new heads. To run in a heads/cam 4v would be a rare thing.

    That is pretty funny considering my friend has a 98 Cobra Convertible, a little heavier than a coupe, and with a CAI and flowmasters went 13.6 on street tires at 100mph with a 2.0 60".

    Can you even drive? From the sounds of it not if all you could pull out of a 4v was 14's.

    Heads Cam gears and some other supporting mods easily 12's.... IF you can drive.
