Probably a supercharger and good driver mod. I'm not sure on the numbers of the 08 cobra, but I believe they're about 500 hp and 480 tq to the wheels. Both cars weigh around the same. so if you can pick up 120 or so hp at the wheels, it will come down to driver mod.

You mean GT500? 2004 was the last year that they made the Cobra (I think). I'm no Mustang fan but the 04 Cobra had a 390 HP 4.6 L supercharged engine and weighted around 35-3600 pounds. I would say that with those specs and weight it should put the car in the low 13 second range maybe high 12's with a good driver.

Pretty sure the 08 GT500 is a mid 12 second car from the factory.....sticky tires will drop that number drastically however. We can help you put him in your rearview if you're interested.

Thought it was 500 at the crank lol. At the wheel would put it near the zl1!
And sorry meant gt500. Thought the full name that year was cobra gt500

They aren't that fast bone stock but if he has a pulley and tires it's a different story.

They usually dyno about 440ish hp at the wheels. They also weigh about 3900lbs. Cam and bolt ons and you should hold your own/win. Depends on driver mod though.

If he has pulley and tires, like stated, you're toast. They only run 12.5 or so factory. And thats with a damn good driver.

Stock 440rwhp like stated. Get him nice and heatsoaked. He will be lucky to be In the 400whp range In this summer heat. That being said I bet you do full exhaust and intake I bet you would hang with one if not beat him. Dont forget also if hes on stock tires almost a given win to you. 07-09 gt500s completly stock are way overrated. I think you can take him with what I said.

2007-2009 GT500's aren't over-rated or slow for what they are despite what people have said. Just like the new GT500 people thought they were the cats ass when they were new. With that being said they were a good race for my 2007 C6 Z51 and my C6 is/was faster than my 2012 SS.

100 percent stock gt500 is way overrated imo. They are a great platform to build off of. In my opinion though a supercharged gt500 should blow a full exhaust and tune cai ss camaro away... but its just not the case.. whether it be traction or heatsoaked.. they are a good race for 5.0 and ss camaro stock if not lose more often then not. This is just from what ive seen in florida.when stock Winter time runs like a champ but traction issues. Summer time great traction but 10min after started the damn thing starts pulling timing. Do a back to back pull and significant timing pulled. Thats why I have a dual fan afco heat exchanger. Works wonders. Probably will get a killer chiller when imove to az though

SS had a edge on the start. Gt500 won by a little. which taking the start into it was actually about 1 Length. which are both about where they should be. Problem with Stangs is they dont know what "turning" is.

wait.........what.........the wheel move side-to-side........dafuq.......

So for once GM has the handling advantage (1LE & ZL1 only) and now Mustangs are only good in a straight line? Sorry but my 2014 GT is more capable than my 2012 SS was and with the tires on the 1LE I think it's pretty obvious it'll hold the road better.

Just do us other Mustang owners a favor and buy an import instead.

The S197 suspension set up is no worse than anything GM has right now. And up until the ZL1/1LE program they handled better than any other similar offering. In short a Track Package GT, Boss or GT500 handle better than 90% of drivers can. The fact that they're under-tired is juat that and nothing more.

I have 620rwhp with a vmp tvs.. I love my car the way it is and the drag radials hook really well. Sorry for stating facts that stock 2007-09 gt500s are pigs with a supercharger. Barely able to beat a ss camaro. With my pulley and tune combo before the tvs was amazing also for so little money. Like previously stated great platform to build off of. I love my car. Even when it was stock I did. Also found out the hard way of the facts im telling you. But if you want to go on and stay ignorant by all means do so... done talking to this knuckle head have a nice life.

I think this video says it all:



And it's a 2010 which has 40 more hp.

Well that pretty much answers you're question. Pretty close race if you ask me, and in the video discription he states that they ran again and he beat the GT500.

I just gotta ask did you have an import before the GT500?

You keep saying all this bullshit yet fail to mention that they were on par with the same year of Corvette. With that being said the same year C6 would trounce a Camaro.

LS2 C6 Z51 > Camaro
LS2 C6 Z51 = GT500
GT500 = Camaro
