    cobb stage 2 sti vs 04 cobra

    I just ran into a 2004 cobra and it wasn't pretty. I was cruising home on the highway when I see a silver 04 cobra. We did a few runs from both 4th and 5th gear. Every time it ended with the same result . The car was unbeilevable. I would stay with him for about 1-3 seconds then it would pull away. Everytime he could of pulled away by many bus lenghts before he slowed down. It was pretty sweet hearing the supercharger screaming at 100+mph. My car couldn't even hang. IT MAKES ME WANT TO BUILD A SUPRA, OR PUT A BIG TURBO IN THE STI. I would like to see what I could of done from a dig. At least the guy was real cool, we gave each other the thumbs up and headed are seperate ways.

    I am running an accessport stage 2 with a vishnu tbe

    What kind of power are new cobras making? I knew they were fast but I figured a modded sti would at least be able to hang from a roll. Im sure youd do alot better from a stop.

    I know I've posted this information a millions times but here it goes again:

    A stock STi will hang RIGHT THERE with a STOCK 03/04 Cobra. In 4th and 5th gear rolls the Cobra will most definately out run the STi and probably somewhat easily.

    If this guy was putting "bus lengths" on you, he was probably modded a bit.

    I should think a fairly modded STi will out run the stock 03/04 SC'd Cobra in just about any race.

    BUT, a modded 03/04 Cobra is something the 04 Viper SRT10 would STRUGGLE against.... GOOD LUCK!

    The Cobra takes to mods VERY VERY well. A simple exhuast upgrade (stock echaust is basically a GT exhuast) can yield up to about 50 HP and 60 TQ.

    I dont care if you are from a dig or a roll. Nor do I care about the AWD aspect, you will LOOSE to a modded SC'd Cobra in any stock STi. I dont even think these STi that are modded to hell to snag a 12 flat would hang.

    To give you an idea of how fast the Cobra is and how easy it is to mod:

    3 tries @ 70F with bad shifts, stock tires, and mediocre driver
    --------------------------------------------
    Exhaust
    2.8 Pulley
    Chip

    12.2 @ 117
    12.1 @ 117
    12.0 @ 118

    Those were my 3 and only tries. I never ran the car after I put on the intake. Which REALLY opened up that car. The 2.80" pulley was starving for air.


    This car was SICK fast and they are running high 10's - low 11's with bolt-ons and DR's....

    Oh and BTW:

    I pulled a 1.89 60' on stock tires. So dont say a 03/04 Cobra cant be launched. Cause they can. It just takes LOTS of practice, good pavement, and some luck.

    I don't think the Cobra had to be modded to beat the STI that badly from a roll. Cobra's have a good 7mph trap advantage and they shine up top. STI's smaller displacment and AWD hurt it up top, relatively speaking of course.

    From a dig its one thing...from a roll, a stock STI just doesn't stand a chance. You know that and have said it, I'm just reiterating.

    correct me if i am wrong here... if you take a modded sti vs a modded cobra and race them in the 1/4 I am THINKING the sti will win, but if you take the same two cars and extend it to more than the 1/4 will the cobra win?? For example my car is a dog beleive it or not until 4k-7k... and launching is a pain I am thinking I wont be able to make up the ground i lost from the start and be able to pull the sti in by the time we reach the end of the quarter.. I havent gotten any times yet, but my stock times were 13.5@104 with a crappy crappy 2.0 60'.

    Dude, with as much power as you're putting down I would hope that you would beat a stock STI. Even modded - you would be catching up so quickly.

    I mean, you're making well over 100whp vs. stock, aren't you? Damn nice car man.

    why don't you wait until the cobra on the new chassis comes out? that way you can go fast in a straight line and have a chassis that was developed after Metallica released their first record.
