They are pretty quick out of the box running high 12s but you won't find to many without at least a tune and a pulley swap.

Are you sure it was an 03/04? They had that body style without the supercharger too.

I beat one 3 runs in a row, with a pulley, tune, nittos, and exhaust! Thats when I just had headers on my car, not even tuned! From a slow roll till about 110 I had a half car on him each run. I out pulled him in the low end by a car, he would creep a half car back and then stay there. He could not believe it... and all the crap I here about them I was suprized myself! We talked afterword and when I told him all I had was headers he pretty much sh&t a brick! After that Ill run any cobra any time... its just another car, and they all different!

Stock solid mid to high 12 sec car depending on who is driving. Launching one can be very difficult. If the car you raced was supercharged you would know it, the car has a very distinctive super charger whine. Had an 04 myself and still miss the car. My car stock dynoed 390/375, pulley, cai, tune: $800 = 455/458

Raced a pulley, cai, tune and full exhaust one after my heads/cam and pulled him pretty good. No way a V6 is going to beat even a stock one unless the driver is retarded or the car is messed up. Stock for stock the 03-04 Cobra has a slight edge over a stock SS.

I knew what the outcome would be in the end. No doubt about it. I just couldn't resist! Was waiting on that thing to turn into a sling shot. Was just impressed I held in there that long. He could've t drive or sand bagged the hell out of it. Would of liked to see how much distance he could of got.

If you didn't hear the blower whine, which is very tell tale on the 03/04 Terminator, then it was either an older Cobra, or a GT with some cosmetic changes.

I run about the same as a 500 rwhp cobra on e85 locally here, Im a little quiker at the track and he has a straight axle swap. He traps a little higher than me.

His mods are upper/lower pulleys, e85 tune, full exhaust, and all the little bolt on stuff. He made 505/515 I think.
