04 SVT Cobra to 10/11 Camaro SS

I'm thinking about trading my 04 Cobra Mustang for a 10/11 Camaro SS. I love my Cobra it's quick with 460 rwhp and 460 tq, but it's a bit small and a bit dated. My favorite car has always been the 69 Camaro and I think the 10/11 SS will be as close as I come to one. I'm just wondering if I would end up regret parting with the Cobra.

What mods does it take to get these SS's into the 425-450 rwhp range?

Bolt-on's can get you close to 420, 450 will require a cam. I don't think you'll regret it.

Are you talking auto? A manual is stock @ 386 HP and with headers, exhaust, CAI and tune members have rported closer to 450 RWHP. An auto seems to be roughly 20-30Hp less.

Manual, like I said above mine dyno'd at 364 stock. I have typically seen 41x rwhp from bolt-on LS3's. There is no way to get close to 450 rwhp with just bolt-on's unless it's a very liberal dyno.

420 ish is very possible with Headers intake and tune on an LS3.

Where are you located in NC?

Headers, CAI and a good tune will pull 420-425 RWHP....tops! There is no significant power to be had from exhaust system (cat backs) mods. I got 424 RWHP with those 3 mods. The following year, I wanted more, so I added a Maggie and pulled another 150 HP.

Is your Mustang stock? If you just want more power, those motors respond very well to mods. We have Terminators running around here pushing 700 FWHP with stock internals; only increased boost and a good tune....but the Camaro is so drop-dead beautiful.

I was actually gonna look for 03/04 cobra before the Camaro came out.

IMO.... those are the baddest mustangs in the modern times.... add a pulley, tune, and boost and it was a freak!!!

Thank you for the responses thus far. It really is a hard decision for me as I love my Cobra but she is getting up there in age and miles. The Cobra is a mean piece for sure it dynoed stock near 385 and with a few inexpensive bolt on she is near 460 to the wheels. I wish the Camaro would respond to boltons like that. The obvious choice for me would be the new 5.0 but I really don't care for the looks of it especially the rear of the car. I also like the 11 SRT Challenger but it's price tag is out of reach. There is a 2011 1SS with barely 900 miles on it for sale at $31,000 what do you think of that price?
