Default My new 04 Comp Orange Cobra

Hey guys n' Gals. I finally got a chance to head out and take some pictures of my new CO Cobra. As stated in te "car show" section, I travelled far and wide to find this car. After searching for a while for a Comp Orange Cobra, I decided on this one because of the few choice mods and only 34k miles. My girlfriend and I flew to Kentucky to road trip it back to AZ. We had a blast, and I am absolutely in love with this car. Without further a due...

I hope you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed taking them.

The mods include:
STEEDA 2.80 SUPERCHARGER PULLEY,
STEEDA 100MM IDLER TENSIONER,
STEEDA BOOST BYPASS KIT,
STEEDA OIL CATCH CAN,
JLT BIG BOOST AND COLD AIR INTAKE,
ACCUFAB POLISHED SINGLE BLADE THROTTLE BODY AND PLENUN,
LETHAL PERFORMANCE GREY POWERED COATED ICE BOX,
LFP DUALPASS HEAT EXCHANGER WITH COBRA STENCILED,
STEEDA TRI AX SHIFTER,
DIABLO SPORT PREDATOR,
BASSANI CATTED X- PIPE,
BASSANI CAT BACK EXHAUST,
BLACK COBRA LETTER INSERTS,
SHIFTER BOB GASKETS.

The exhaust was custom done though to look stock. The stock mufflers were cut out and the new ones were welded in. Although, they don't look like Bassani, more like the SLP loudmouths. ? ? ? But, it sounds badass so who cares, right?

Looks just like mine! I found mine with 11,500k miles and in about 1 1/2 years I now have 15k miles. What kind of numbers does it put down?

I dunno. Haven't had it dyno'd. Maybe somewhere around the mid 400s at the wheels? Man that is some low miles. Good stuff. Did you post up pics of yours?

Yea you can click my name and search for my pic thread. So since you have not had it on a dyno, I take it you have not had your car dyno tuned and to make sure your a/f is good. IDK man your dancing with the devil to have a smaller pulley and inake on your car without a proper tune and check of your a/f. When I took my car in to get tuned it was very lean!

You need to find a good dyno tuner in AZ, maybe make a thread about it over on svtperformance.com, and find out. When you find a tuner you need to call him and ask him if he can tune using a diablo, I know most prefer SCT but my tuner will tune using either one. I would get that done asap and I would not go wot on your car untill then. Last thing you want is...... Tick..Tick....Boom!

Thanks guys! I used my new Nanowax last night and man, the thing looks like candy. I am going to take it to one of the local car shows here in about two hours. It's the perfect day t own an Orange car. I should throw a graphic of a jack-o-lantern on the door and it would look just like a pumpkin.

I notice many 03-04 Cobra owners have had newer S197 Mustangs and have gone back in model years to the Cobras. Obviously, the power of the supercharged 4 valve 4.6 must be a major factor, but is it because you decided after owning a S197 that you just didn't like them? If so, what was it about the S197's that you did not like as much? I like the S197's as well, but no doubt there is something special about the New Edge Cobras. I have a 97 Cobra - not in the same ball park as either but I love it just the same. Just curious as to what factors have driven the decisions for all of you former S197 owners to go back to the earlier Cobras...

IMO S197 = Trash, I hated everything about mine except the shifter location. To me they don't respond well and you cant be as in tune to your s197 like you can be with a new edge (if you understand what I'm trying to say ha). The drive by wire is the worst thing they put in the s197. Some people may get upset that I am talking sh*t about the S197 but hey I can because I owned that piece of junk. I had alot of mods done to mine to try and make me like it and I just couldnt deal with it no more. If your going to spend 20k+ on a car a Terminator is the best bang for the buck, unless you want to go with a lsx.

I know their is a guy in the mach1 section that has a thread going right now that he is ditching the s197 and going back to a mach1.

Hmm. That's a good question. Personally I have always loved the Cobras. I remember the mid 90's Cobras growing up very vividly. It was around the time that I was getting my driver's license and really started becoming interested in cars. I loved the way the circular fog lights looked in the front bumper, and thought there was always street credit to be had with a car represented by a venomous serpent. I guess in a way I liked the symbol for the same reason that Bruce Wayne chose the Bat. He feared it and wanted to take that fear and project it onto to the criminals of Gotham. Not exactly the best analogy, but I have always feared and respected the Cobra.

Behind the symbol, I liked what Ford made it represent. A car with every aspect covered by SVT. Looks, handling, speed, sound, etc. So I have always been a huge fan. Well, my first car was a 73 Mach1 which I spent a lot of time and money restoring, but had to sell it because I needed something a little more user-friendly for everyday driving in AZ. I really wanted a new-age Mineral Grey GT. But, at the time I didn't really have much credit (or money) and with the help of my parents co-signing, I was persuaded to get into something more "practical." Then the import scene really struck me, and I had everything from an SRT-4, 350Z, STI, RX-8, and some others. But never really felt it. I remember looking at the 03 Cobra as it sat new on the dealership lot, and vividly remember this more than anything...

I wanted another muscle car.

The movie Transformers did it for me. Seeing the Saleen and the Camaro, I knew what I had been missing. So in 2007, I set out looking into American Muscle. I went to Ford looking to get into a Shelby GT, but it was already the end of the model year, none of the dealerships in town had any to look at, and no one could tell me anything about them except they were $40,000. So, I decided to buy a premium pack GT, and figured I would "make" my own Shelby. So this...


Turned into this.


But it wasn't real. I was never really happy, because I wanted the real thing. But after driving the GT500, and comparing it to my "clone," it never stood up. My GT had more power, lighter weight, better suspension, better paint (painted stripes), better wheels, better tires, better brakes, better interior, better lights, etc. The GT500 felt fat and overpriced, but the Shelby GT wasn't enough for me. So, I went back to where my heart was, with the 99-04 Mustangs. I think they are much more comfortable and nimble than the new Mustang. To be honest, my 04 Cobra just fees like home to me and is such a great value, which at the end of the day, helps me justify owning a gas hog.
