I was just in your shoes! I was looking at 99-04 GT's, came across my 01 Cobra w/ 56k miles for $10,995 and snatched it up. I have no regrets. The GTs I was looking at were not as nice as this Cobra, and were in the $8k to $10k range.

The Cobra makes 320 horsepower, the GT makes 260 horsepower. I rationalized that I would spend a lot of money down the road trying to make more horsepower from a GT, or I could buy a Cobra and already make 60 more horsepower .

Get the cobra and don't look back!
If you plan on adding boost mm&ff did an article with a hellion turbo kit on a '04 with '01 cobra intake. It made 847 to the tires and they have a bolt on kit for the '99-01 cobra. The article title A party on wheels-turbine wheels, that is.
I came across it while looking up info and parts for my build. If I wasn't going na I would go with it.

Said article is on the website, page eight, on the tech. There are also others about supercharging.

As far as I know the 96+ Cobras were only fitted with a forged crank, the 03/04 Cobras are equipped with forged internals, and maybe the 2000R but don't quote me on that one.
