    yeah, for some reason i believe it, but when considering the ZO6 makes 405 to the crank, a cobra with 390 at the wheels should be able to pull decently hard on one, which i doubt but have never seen. ive seen runs with a cobra an m3 on freeway, an with 333 at the crank, the m3 stayed no more than a car an a half behind. but factors factors

    take into account the cobra is extremely heavy. A cobra should be able to run mid-high 12's. M3 should be in the 13's. That's strange because an m3 has no top end.

    Yea, I'm fully aware of what the Cobra dyno's/runs. StoplightWarrior, who I was addressing, said he only was scared to run 3 cars in his LS1 - turbo Porshce's, Z06's and vipers. I was simply asking him how he'd fare against a Cobra.

    cobras 03 an up will bust no more than a low 13. atleast thats what all the mags say, an i havent seen a stock one prove otherwise, but rarely do people outrun the magazines times. my m3 will hop up to 150-160 no prob, geared for the autobahn, almost all german cars have massive top end. the problem is the first two gears.

    Or they dyno at 320 HP on race fuel and 24 lbs of boost and still quote that number to people when they are currently running on pump gas and 19 lbs of boost and giving up 50 HP due to these factors...

    Right now, I have my pump gas dyno sheet of 332 HP on a dynapack AWD dyno on 20 psi. But the gas station F'ed up and currently I have a tank full of piss water (87 octane) and am running a whopping 13 psi of boost (lowest I can set it). Till this tank is empty I will NOT be getting into any races! ****, I probably am only running around 250 wheel HP at the moment
