    98 mustang cobra vs 02 WRX

    ok this is pretty funny. I pull up to a light last night and a cobra pulled right next to me, i gave him a little rev and he started to laugh. when the light turn green i dropped the clutch at 6000 rpm and got an easy two car lenth then at the end of 2nd hes about 4 cars back then when i let off the gas at 75 he was prob 6 or 7 cars back then he pulled next to me at the light asked me what i had, i told him TOP SECRET hehe he was looking at his car like "what is wrong with this?" but then gave me a thumbs up which was cool.

    Nice Kill

    Always good to hear about an (cobra, SVT, WHATEVER!) getting schooled. Especially by a 'sleeper.'

    Nicely done.

    about an (cobra not SVT) getting schooled
    All Cobras are SVT's. With the exceptions being the mid 60's Cobra roadsters and the Mustang II's with Cobra badging.

    yeah i thought there was a difference, but really have no idea. do you mind explaining the Cobra SVT thing a bit? hopefully i'm not the only one here that will learn from it... what does SVT stand for? what kind of numbers does it put out? etc... thanks a bunch

    Ford Special Vehicles Team (SVT) is the group of engineers at Ford that gets to have too much fun. They are responsible for the Mustang Cobra, F-150 Lighting, Contour SVT, and Focus SVT.

    Platinum pretty much nailed it. Much like a M series BMW, an AMG Mercedes, or an STi it's an in house tuned version. In one of the previous issues of MM&FF they swapped the blower on a Lightning from the stock Eaton to an Autorotor from Kenne Bell and did minor mods besides and produced 520+ hp. I'm just hoping the new Cobra has as much potential. Rumors I've been hearing state that swapping in a Lightning pulley and an exhaust system really wake the car up. We'll see, I'm going to Maple Grove tomorrow and Sunday hopefully I'll see one run. On a side note the local Subie dealer just got 2 new WRX's in WR Blue and a silver. I'm really fighting the urge to go look at the WR Blue one.

    DOHCtor_C, what's your Cobra run?

    A friend of mine had a Kenne Bell Supercharge on his 98 Cobra. 475HP Viper eater!

    Test drive a WRX and remember, it's soooooooo much faster with a few mods!

    I haven't run it yet, my friends and I go to the track a good bit but I still haven't run it. It's totally stock right down to the airfilter, I only have 9000 miles on it. I've already made up my mind that I will have a WRX sooner or later, I have to finish paying off my Jeep first then I'll be able to afford it.

    I just read last night in my May Popular Mechanics (yeah, I know, I'm way behind) that the new Saleen Mustang is pushing around 450 hp with similar torque numbers! Of course, they said it'd cost you about $50K, I believe. I little nuts if you ask me, but pretty impressive numbers. Oh, they said 1/4 mile in under 13 sec.
