Default 2004 Cobra vs. 2005 Mustang GT Please Comment!

Hey 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?

If you get the 04' Cobra, you will have more power right-away and you could easily afford a Pulley swap to gain even more power.

Also, if you were to buy a GT and put a turbo on it....Turbos are amazing for power! The drawback is they are very expensive and if something goes wrong (and it will) you will spend an arm and a leg to get it fixed.

03-04 Terminator IMO.

You can pick one up cheaper than a new 06 and you'll start off with more hp and trq and a lighter platform to build on. The computer in the 03-04's are much easier to deal with than the new Stangs as well. Not to mention there are gobs of aftermarket products for the Cobra. Although, it's only a matter of time before the after market crowd goes bananas with the new stangs. Even more than they have now.
