    Yeah man the money you're gonna dump into a cobra, $20-25K can be invested into your car and you'll pretty much never have to worry about any cobra.

    You already have a T/A, just build it bigger and badder. Sure those cars are bad ass, but why not just have something different, but just as bad? The LS1 is built pretty strong..and can handle alot. My vote goes to keeping your car, and really modding the hell out of it. But whatever you decide to do, good luck.

    I agree with 98camaro, keep the beast and mod it. How many other ones are you really going to see on the street?...not alot, at all...least not alot that are ACTUALLY Cobra's. So you lost one...and it screwed up your pride in your car. Get over it if you truely like the T/A. I can assure you, it will be a rare occurance. If you really are that upset, but want to keep the car, there is a shitload of mods you can do to put that guy in his place, so don't be loosing faith so easily.

    Like most of you I'm out to kill cobras as well, except in a gt. For most of us normal racers we are at a huge disadvantage. For a small investment they will run 11s all day while it will take us a bit of change. If you want a go fast street car, they are hard to beat. I looked at buying one but ended up getting a motor for mine. Its always fun being thought of as the underdog.

    An LS2 GTO is alil on the heavy side and the mods are on the expensive side. My friend has one w/ a cam and he can't even get a rear for it, cause it has to come directly from Australia.

    I don't get your argument, with money comes speed, whether initial or in mods.

    03's are bad ass, but they are BAD on your wallet too. Used 03's are risky business, especially if they are already modded, which means they have prolly been beat down with hard mileage.

    Anyway, go get your 03, and join a Ford forum. Till then, I will be laying down Termi's with my LS1. Then yours will be next.

    Basically, all i want is a solid 11 sec car that i can use as a DD. I agree, the cobra is the fastest way to get there, but the LS1 is cheaper. I guess i will wait and see, first i gotta sell my car before i think about anything else.

    An LS7 costs about 15 grand don't it? You would have been better off building a forged stroker with a massive blower.

    Still, the LS7 would be my choice of N/A engine anyday.

    really? one mod? i didnt know the injectors and fuel pump were capable on a stock LS1, let alone the tune. or the fuel rails. or the cooling system. guess that's a pretty stout stock clutch and rear end to boot! LS1's have quite a bit of overengineering apparently!
