What year Cobra? If you are speaking of a '03 Cobra VS a 94-98 Cobra... you might as well compare a Acme rocket to a turtle.

The 94 and 95 GT's were slower than the 96-98's.

94-95 GT's are 215 hp?
96-97 GT's are 215 hp?
98 GT's are 225 hp?

94-95 cobras are 240hp?
96-98 cobras are 305hp?

someone correct me if im wrong..not sure of the TQ specs but thats how they are HP wise.. 98 Gt's run wut high 14's low 15's at the track if a good driver? Im guessing that a cobra would run mid 14's at the track since 94-98 were the heaviest years of the mustangs, and how it being a convert it just adds more weight to it.

94-95 gt are faster then 96-97 gt, but are slower then the 98 gt's. The 5.0's low end power beats the high power of the 4.6.

94-95 GT = 225hp
96-98 GT = 225hp

94-95 Cobra = 2445hp
96-98 Cobra = 305hp

I want a 97 or 98 Cobra but I really don't want to be raped with insurance.

How about 03 Cobra vs. 05 GT? Stock

Not planning on switching or anything, just curious.

If you're looking for stock HP numbers then, 03 Cobra = 390hp stock vs. 300hp for '05 GT.

Your still comparing apples to oranges here.

Stock '03 Cobra: 390hp
Stock '05 GT: ~300hp

If I were you, I'd look at the Mach 1's if your looking for something other than a Cobra for performance. Even though on paper the 05 compares equally with the Mach, it just plain looks ugly as hell.

Right, '03 and '04 Cobras are a totally different animal than any other GT or earlier Cobra. WAY faster. Lots of hi-pro parts on those two year's Cobras from top to bottom, front to rear. I believe an average split 0-60 on an '05 GT is at best with a pro driver at 5.1, although one of the major car magazines claims they just nicked below the 5 second mark. I don't really know the running circumstances on that test or if I would trust it. I would think an average driver with an '05 GT could run consistent 5.5's. The '03 & '04 Cobras would hit, I believe, 4.5 or better 0-60....STOCK! That is a hugh difference in the world of drag racing.

One other thing, idriveamustang is correct. The only 225 HP rated '94-'98 GT was the '98. Different computer and exhaust tuning for the extra 10+ HP. The '94 & '95's may have even listed at closer to only 200 HP. Kind of confusing with the change over from the 5.0 to the 4.6. Actually, a low mileage '98 Cobra would be a hell of a bang for the buck Mustang right about now. Lots of potential with the 32V DOHC to pump out much more than its rated 305 HP.
