thanks guys... i was gettin really worried cuz i love stangs... and im lookin to getting a cobra or saleen hopefully next summer... - got my other baby - brand new gixxer 6 haha... sooo... i was wanting to test drive one and he said he was gonna get one... so he got an 03.
anyways... he pulled in it was zinc yellow and im like not bad... it just had alil hood scoop - thought the cobras had a huge scoop... then i seen the cobra on the side by the door... the bad end said mustang - i thought the cobras said cobra - bottom of the back bumper ya know? so hes like u wanna take it for a test drive im like hellz ya. the inside was alot diff than my 99 v6 lol... so i start out and i give it alil gas and im like... umm... ok its takin off slow.. hes like floor it, so i do and it just slowly gets up to speed im thinking... wtf i feel no jerk back to pull me in my seat. i took it for a few miles and like i said i was not impressed at all... i didnt open the hood up.. he told me theres a super charger in there but he also told me he was gettin a 6 spd. - i dunno if that was a diff cobra or not... cuz i went to sit down im like... auto ? hes like ya... im like... o.. ok. 1. i didnt think they made em in autos... 2nd i thought they had a cobra in the back bumper instead of mustang... i knew they had the snakes on the side... and i thought they had a snake replacing the mustang in the front grill.... no snake was anywhere inside the car.. .thought the seats might have a snake etched into the seats like the pony is on the v6's and i wasnt sure bout the fog lights i thought they made em round ??? his looked like a GT fog lights more square-ish lol. anyways... thanks for clearing this up... i was gettin worried thinking the cobras suck major. and i didnt hear the supercharger - dunno if he put a kit on or what but if it was supercharged it was a real weak one. and to tell u the truth if his was a GT it was kinda slow too lol... it would suprise me if someone took a reg. 03 stang... put a s/c on it... put the snake on the sides... and said it was a cobra.... dont get me wrong i could def. tell alil difference between his and mine, but it felt like u throw a couple mods on a v6 and thats what it felt like. so i dunno... next time im gonna take a better look... under the hood... etc. lol... thanks once again
and one more thing... he dont really know bout mustangs... he is always askin me... will a cobra beat a corvette... will it beat this... or that. so enough said.
I'll try to clarify some more up cuz he is clearly has no clue... at all. For the 03/04 Cobra's, they did not have hood scoops. They came stock with the two heat extractor hood vents. You will find those on all 03/04 Cobra's unless the owner has modified that. Now the 99 and 01 Cobra's, I think they did have the hood scoop, but I'm not as up to date on them so I'm sure someone more familiar can speak up on that. The 03/04 Cobra's did have the 'cobra' written on the back bumper. Apparently he put the cobra badges on the sides next to the door. Trust me... if he had a supercharger in that car, you would know it. Especially the stock eaton. You can deffinetly hear the whine of it clearly and is unmistakenable. The 6-speed came stock... to my knowledge, no cobra has ever came stock with an auto. The front seats did have the cobra emblems on them, unless he got the car with the pony seats in them. Rare but can happen. Did the back bumper have the small cut outs for where the dual exhaust comes out at or was it straight across? If it has the cut outs, then it could be a GT. If it had the other style of bumper, then it could be a 6er. Did it even sound like a V8? My best guess is that he has a GT and is posing as a Cobra. I call [sm=bs.gif]
Take a ride in a 'real' cobra. Trust me, it will throw u up against the seats and take your breath away. Especially even a lightly modded one. They easily make about 450 rwhp with just a couple of quick mods. And 03/04 cobra's > 04 and older vettes most of the time. Now the newer vettes, different story. Gotta mod up the cobra's a lil to hang with them then.
