Default 99-04 GT's vs. 96-98 cobra

How would a new edge gt hold up against an older (96-98) cobra?

The Cobra should pull the GT in the higher RPM's all things being equal....

cobra will be faster accros the board and will respond better to mods. think about it. you put a cai on a gt and get 8hp put one on a cobra and get 14-15

stock vs stock, they are both equal in the 1/4.. (14.0's to 14.2's or so)

but once the modding starts, (i would assume particularly gears) the torque curve in the 4v 4.6 becomes less of an issue and can walk all over an equally equipped GT

when i first got my car, me a friend of mine whos got a cobra, raced. both of us were stock and i hung with him. we did a 50 drop and he got me by like 1/4 of a car length. the part that sucks is that he has just an exhaust and cai, and he can keep up with me somewhat. it makes me mad, but its a 2v what more can u expect.

My moms bf has one... bolt on GT>Cobra... responding to mods Cobra>GT.... Looks New Edge GT>SN95 Cobra (imo) - stock 4 stock.. Cobra can have a decent run and break a 13... GT NEEDS an awesome run
