supercharge an ls1 to make it even and see what happens! It would be a lot cheaper to go with an LS1 than with the cobra. its 10g less and for the 10g you could put 10 car lenghts between it and a cobra.

Wrong, I have seen a vid of a cobra with bolt ons beat a 500 hp lingenfelter camaro ss.

The cobra has a lot of benefits for that $10 g's, like a completely internally built engine.

Btw where are you seeing Brand new LS1 anything for $ 10g less than a cobra? If you mean used, you cannot compare.

The only LS powered car is the GTO which is in the same price range.

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.
An SS with those kind of mods should have beat the cobra, now if you would of lost then that would be something worth mentioning.

I would like to know the times on that camaro?

I have seen a ton of camaros race cobras on the track and off, they just aren't that impressive.

If you look at an 02 camaro stock to an 03 cobra stock

From 30 to 90 mph it takes the camaro 7.75 seconds vs. the cobras 6.8 seconds.

Even with those mods it would be a close race.

Given the LS1's compression ratio boost is a bad idea without going into the motor. My money's on the Cobra, but don't discount what an LS1 is capable of. That's one jewel of a motor.

hello everyone, new here.
anyway, my 98 TA only had longtubes, gears, lid, and hypertech and pulled a 13.1 @108mph oh, and that was on bald street tires wich busted on the way home from the strip. And it was an auto, Manuals can do 12.7 with minor bolt ons. so with any cam or heads a STOCK 03 cobra would go down and that is a fact!
