    Cool! I paid 12.5K for mine... so that leaves me with, uhhh... 23.5K - 12.5K = $11K to mod the car with. Should be plenty to cook a snake with.

    Go for it dude Dump 11k in your car, then it will be worth 13k when your done

    Better yet go buy a $1 chevette and dump $23,499 into it and smoke everyone............ricer argument

    Cobra guy is doing a good job supporting his side... you have to give him props... terminator cobras are bad ass... cant argue with that... if you try to your stupid...

    though 99 and 01 cobras arent really that scary... not too slow, but not too scary... some ppl say 0-60 is faster than an ss, but dont really buy it...

    but ok we have proven cobras are awesome... but what about gts or even mach 1's... how do they stand up against stock 02 ss's

    and exactly how fast are black birds... i cant find numbers on them...

    Used 02 Camaro SS's run about 19-22k

    Also Z28's are much cheaper; mine is a 99 and worth about 11-12k

    yeah no shit... i want a white one so damn bad... saw a scam on ebay that had a white one... that i wished was double the cost and really for sale...

    the only thing is they are gonna be like $35k and up prolly for a stage 1 with reasonable miles on it... if in my seach i find on for around $25k with under 30k on it... its prolly mine... then save up for stage 2... and what ever other stage they want to put on it for me...

    I would hope that a Cobra can match an Fbody, They are fu&*ing SUPERCHARGED. Now put that same boost on a z28 and run them. No matter how you look at it "there is no replacement for displacement"

    well lets drop a 351 in a stang and see what it does... oh wait saleen did... ford supercharged it fromt he factory... yay for them... gm doesnt do fun stuff... tough...

    thats not even an arguement... thats like saying yeah but the ferrari has a v12... yeah thats what makes it a damn ferrari...

    would you bitch that a lightening can spank an SS silverado? i hope not chevy just didnt have the balls to supercharge the SS...

    I'm a pontiac guy... if i can gm all the way bros... but if a term was the same price and carried the same insurance that an ss does... there would be a term in my damn garage... purely cause im in it for the power... and with a 70 hp gap ford could win my heart over... oh and saying a rustang is always a pusstang... yeah thats like comparing a firehawk to a firebird... ones the king of the skys and the other cant even fly over a fence...

    and there is a replace ment for displacement... its called a fucking supercharger...

    Do it then. Build one.

    I'm tired of the GM guy "well if we had a supercharger" like a bunch of whiney females

    You don't hear me bitching about lack of cubes, then again there's really not much to bitch about when your smoking F-bodies left and right by train lengths

    If you are tired of GM guys talking then get the fuck off of a GM oriented website, simple enough. We have plenty of cool mustang guys in here, we respect them and they respect us, we don't need you in here starting shit in every thread that we mention a mustang in. For two years there was ONE model of stang that could take an f-body, who gives a shit

    I've owned 3 LS1s tough guy, including a C5 I just here to give the stangs a little respect that seems to be lacking by close minded 18 year old F body owners

    BTW there's about 16,000-20,000 of that model of stang running around

    You aren't here asking for respect, you're here talking trash in every thread there is a difference. I am soooo proud of you for there being 16000-20000 of em. Since that matters, there are almost 170,000 LS1 F-bodies, not to mention 5 years worth of LT1s on the road. Let's see, 400000 of us and 20000 thousand of you, good point you made there.

    Isn't your 03 cobra supercharged? Vs a stock ls1, shouldn't that be obvious? Race a supercharged ls1 of equal boost and wouldn't that be a better comparison.

    EDIT.....Just read the entire post.........I don't necessarily agree but points taken, I guess there is no even comparison, there will always be variables................

    Isn't that like saying a Mustang GT has 281 and an LS1 camaro has a 350 isnt it obvious? give a mustang 350 cubes wouldn't that be a better comparison

    why is the 350Z as fast or faster than a gt then with it's V6, engine size is a weak arguement. If it were all about size we would all have 502s
