A Ls1 with some work has close to the same hp as a stock Cobra. It should be close.

I believe that t/a could keep up. My friend is a prd owner of a 2002 camaro ss and when he had headers, exhaust, maf, throttle body, and k&n he pulled a car on an 2003 cobra with a bassani x-pipe. A mustang cobra does not have near has much top end as an ls1, the mustang is more a low end car unless you do the right mods.

98-00 ls1 t/a's will have 305 hp but if it was a 01-02 it will have 310. this car with a cam and some decent long tube headers can achieve around 350hp. cobras have 390. i could see it being a close race.

The WS6 package I believe included some extra tunings and yielded 325, same with the SS camaro.

dont forget to take into account the weight of the cobra the coupe weighs about 3650 without driver the the TA weighs about 3300 or 3400 lbs. I have seen many times mildely moded LS1's beat 03-04 cobras

guys, the 346 ls1 puts down 295-305whp, the rating is under rated due to the vette. with some exhaust/cam/traction and the pulleys. he could have no problem taking a stock cobra.

for those who don't believe me, i've seen many ls1's toy with cobra's. my brothers ws6 with full exhaust and little bolt ons ran a 13.2 on 7 cylinders and a toasted clutch.
