I'd say they would be close to even power wise, assuming the Cobra was stock. Should be a close race.

If the cobra was stock, maybe if he has some work done. BUT, if the cobra has any good mods, he is dead, they can get to 500 HP pretty easily with just a few good mods MM&FF had one in the 11's with just bolt ons ( thats bad!!)

Hard to say unless you know what exactly he had down to his SB chevy. Cams and exhaust work wonders there, but it still depends on how aggressive the setup is. It's hard to argue with an 03-04 Cobra....

Uh...no way in hell.

An 03' Cobra and an LS1 TA with those mods are not close power wise.

Tell your friend to stop lying to you.

That TA should be pushing only around 310-320 rwhp. The cobra is around 350 or so isn't it? hmmm

Remember, drivers matter, and someone with an all stock cobra may not be all that good. Anything is possible
