ORIGINAL: stang1101Hey Stang lovers,Im lookin to get my first Stang really soon. I dont have that big of a budget. I want to get a 04 cobra but I would have no money left for mods. I would also like to get a 05 mustang gt but also I might not have enough money for any mods. I was looking at a 2004 mustang gt- Sonic Blue. I was thinking of getting that for a good deal and then having money left over for mods and possibly turbo in the future. Do u guys like the 04 or 05 body style better? What do u guys think?
'04 Cobra=390HP, 390lbs./ft. of torque
'05GT=300HP?
I would get the SC Cobra and you will not have to worry about mods, just tires! I believe the '04 Cobra is standard with a SC, correct? You could afford a smaller pulley and increase the boost a tad and .....I can only dream! If my numbers are correct it';s a no brainer. If you are choosing between an '04Gt and an '05GT then it would be the '05 again no brainer, 40 more HP and the new Stangs look great!-with more potential. Mark

Get the Cobra. It will be plenty fast with no mods. It has better suspension, forged internals, nicer interior, better resale value. You can always add 50rwhp to it by simply swapping the s/c pulley.
