    My 99 TA VS 03 Cobra

    My brother-in-law just purchased a 03 Cobra and said that as soon as he gets it home he wanted to race me. I cant get my sig to come up but ive got SLP lid/FRA/TBB/Comp 224/581 112 cam/comp 918s and PRs/ Hedman LTs with off road Y and exhaust. The Cobra has and aftermarket pulley, what are my chances from a roll or dig. never raced one and was just curious

    might be a good match up...dont really know what the LS1 does with your mods, but I do know the supercharged modulars wake up big time with pullies

    if your brother-in-law is "tampa stock" he's making anywhere from 440-475 to the tire.

    you've got a decent cam, Id say you are making 375-380 to the tire. Tough call, only one way to find out. Guess you'll have to line'em up!

    Good luck

    Go for it. I raced 03 Cobra w/ a smaller pulley, chip, slicks and skinnies, full exhaust, intake, and NOS (he said he didn'y use it. I have full exhaust w/LTs and w/cats, custom cam, Lid, pulley, LS6 Intake, and 3200 stall.

    I raced three times and each time beyond 1/4 mile, I was RIGHT at his bumper. A good set of heads, a larger TB, shift kit and gear, well maybe it would have different or he would be using the bottle like a baby at dinner.

    I was crusing with the Stang club. I wasted other Cobras and lost to others as well. I was running with the stampeed. There were other M6's with cams, gears, full exhaust w/LT's mowing down Cobra's There was one heavly modded Z with NOS and he walking evrything!

    Fun weekend for all. That's we buy'em. both are great cars.

    I agree that 460-480 MAY be pushing it, but I guarantee an fbody with the mods listed didn't hang with that cobra regardless

    no luck on a race yet and its almost been a week. the idiot dont even have insurance on it and he hasnt even checked to see what it will cost him every 6 months. he told me that he had already bought the car before even driving it, lets just say he has too much money and not enough sense. My sister, his wife, has a 35th ann. Z28 and he thinks that the insurance on that stang will be about the same as it, he is going to s*** his pants

    I have no idea what yall are talking about but i do agree with Zap. Most people in here are talking about horsepower, but there are a lot other figures to look for. IMO torque and power curves play a bigger roll than just peak HP. Looking at a dyno sheet can tell you that there is a lot of diff between N/A and Forced Ind.

    well for one I hope you're not implying that my knowledge is from magazines where everyone claims to have 1000hp.......bottom line....if you're ever in Florida let me know.....I'll show you what it takes to build a car that has the HP.......it's a shame you get all the "experts" on here that think they know what they are talking about....
