Even with those mods it would be a close race.
I must agree with you on that Focaltech. the LS1 creates a lot of top end, but takes forever to get there. By the time it gets there an 03 cobra would be long gone. My dad has got an 03 Cobra, quite modded now lol. I got a video of him runnin' 10.66 at 135.5 mph in a 1/4 mile, NO NITROUS.

The other day at the drag strip this LS1 Camaro was runnin 11.30s all day and decided to use his 150 shot of Nitrous when my dad pulled up next to him on the line. It was a very close race. He pulled my dad out the hole by a lil bit, cuz of the NOS, but my dad started to catch up to him and b4 they hit the trap...the cobra's nose was dead even with the camaro's door. The Camaro beat my dad by 2 tenths of a second. 10.55 versus 10.75. But my dad's mph was faster than the camaro's, meaning...he passed him right after the trap

But anyway, stock versus stock...the cobra's got it.
