04 SRT4 VS. 99 SVT Cobra

So i was in my friends SRT on Saturday night and we were with the usual group goin to downtown KC to do some racing. Well we were on i think 435 goin towards Front St. and my friend in his SRT and the kid in the Cobra start to mess around and then they gun it from bottom of 3rd gear. Wow, goin up to 140 mph, they were dead even the whole time, it was the best race i've seen in a loooong time. Kids, thats why our focuses shouldn't mess with them lol, i've got much respect for a 4 cylinder thats stock that keeps up with a Cobra that has exhaust and a few other minor things. Still yet to see a FI focus that has impressed me (in person that is), seen a few ZX3's with a JRSC and they're nothin special, not a bunch of power, but damn, that SRT and the Cobra are monsters lol. But the guy with the Cobra just got a Procharger so he'll be gone with my friend come next week lol.

Bad thing is that the Cobra and the SRT both eat the same amount of gas. Was the Cobra a 2003-2004 or older model may I ask?

Yeah, actually my friends SRT gets 24 mpg in the city which isn't too bad! My SVT got 22-23 with no FI, but you guys should've been there, it was pretty awesome to watch, i was gonna bring my videocamera too but i forgot it! There wwas also a gun shooting and a guys truck get loaded with a shotgun (heard it, wasn't ANYWHERE near it lol) and a bunch of crazy ass bikers lol.

yeah, those cars are no joke. When Jessica and I took the SVT to the track last wednesday, there were about 10 SRT-4's out there. The slowest ran a 14.4 (musta screwed up cause he was wearing a helmet) and the fastest ran a mid 12. Pretty insane that the stock internals are good up to 500hp.

Yeah, the upgraded stages actually don't do a lot of damage, they're good for modding under warranty but after you stray away from the warranty is where the real power will come out with some new cams and whatnot, not sure if there is a tune out for the SRT4 yet though, me and my friend were just talkin about that...hmm...
