So if this dude is claiming to have a cobra, but it's an automatic car, he's a fake-*** liar?

I've seen a few '03/04 Cobra's swapped to a C4 in at the track, but all came with a stick from SVT!

The guys that swap auto's in their Cobras, are only interested in quick 1/4 mile times. Take out the stick, you take out the fun, lol!

Many guys do swap in an auto. Auto is just faster. Stick is more fun, but slower.

Stick isn't always slower. Stock for Stock a 5 speed GT will run a faster 1/4 mi time than a stock Auto GT, but once you cross a certain power level, auto will be faster. If you are over 600rwhp in a 6 speed Cobra, when running down the track, even on slicks, you will spin at launch, and spin a little between each gear change, because of the harsh engagement of the clutch.

With an auto, it is possible that you won't spin at all. The torque converter absorbs much of the drivetrain shock, so the tires won't break loose. And a Stalled automatic can launch so much harder than a stick car. When it comes to 1/4 mile times, its all about the first 60ft, which is most affected by launch.

There is an 03 Terminator in Marietta, GA on e-bay with an auto-trans. The description states:
"It has gone through a full factory conversion to an automatic transmission, they do not come in automatic ever! The conversion was done shortly after purchase as a new vehicle and was done by Ford factory technitions"
check e-bay item# 270782175668
