the dohc motors, while still not having the bolt on potential of a pushrod engines, are no doubt far superior to the 2v or single overhead cam engines. cobras can easily put 300 hundred to the wheels with a catback and intake from the ones ive seen. it really comes down to gearing, kinda like racing a mach 1. dont discredit them, ive seen sn95 cobras that were beasts.

Your right after I re-read that it did seem a little cocky. I think that even now tho, It would be a good run, but I dont think that it would be a total defeat even if I lost. I have been beaten before and it really dosent bother me, I am a good loser. I think its great when I do get beat, it gives me a reason to get better. I think that anyone who atleast puts up a good show, should be shown respect unless they are a total ass about the out come of the race, win or lose. I only try to race people now that are in the same general type of class of car, I dont even bother with civics or mazdas unless they are built up, or they just want to see where they stand. Some of them are out for blood tho, I dont bother with them, I wont race someone with something to prove. The only thing that really bothers me is when people say they beat you when they didnt or if they brag about it when you didnt even race them.

I'd be willing to bet that guy is telling a tell tell. In my experiences with the 4-valve and the cam grinds readilly available for them, there is usually going to be atleast a slight difference in idle as a give away. Plus, if you looked under his hood and said that nothing 'looked' aftermarket, like not even a throttle body or MAF of some sort, i'd say he's probably bluffing. The 96-98's were respectable nontheless, but were atleast solid half second behind an LS1 car with a good driver.
