I smoked plenty of 90's cobras in both my stock 93 T/A and my stock 95 T/A and neither of my cars were even WS6.



In the later years the numbers on paper were close to the same, I know a few years of the cobra, maybe like 97-99, had issues putting the power to the pavement. Something about either a lot of drivetrain loss or a bad rear end. In 03 When the supercharger came in is when it was a no contest

Here are some comparisons, keep in mind that these are z28's not SS, SS is specialized by SLP which I think would be equivalent to SVT for the stangs
