    How much does a 03/04 Cobra dyno? and can a Sti take it

    Just wondering what thet dyno at stock at the wheels. Also.. how much whp would a STi need to take one of these badboys from a roll?
    Thanks.. I am not sure becuase I can take a e46 m3 by 2 cars from a roll now. And the m3 owner said he takes cobras all day?

    good luck finding stock 03 cobras since they are so easy to mod and make into 500hp cars

    well maybe if it was a low end roll or a race off a launch??? cause anyone can shfi on the freeway no matter how much they suck. BUT the smg do shift real quick which does help them on the highway, i still think cobra would take e46 m3 on highway


    btw if your racing a stock one off a roll with your mods please videotape it, that would be sweet

    Cobras dyno anywhere from 355 to 380 rwhp stock, and usually about the same with the torque #s. It is going to be hard for an STi to keep up on a roll with the Cobra, I would think that it would need over 300 whp, probably much more than that too. The Cobras are super fast especially up top, and they trap around 110 stock (I think).

    As for the M3 beating a Cobra on a roll, that is not happening, especially if the Cobra is modded. The M3 is too hard to mod to be as fast as the cobras, maybe he had momentum on the cobra nad won that way, otherwise he might be puffing himself up. Less than $1500 gets you aroung 450 rwhp in a Cobra, which is very enticing to many owners, and there are a large amount of ones running around with at least this much WHP,so be careful not to get bitten too hard.

    They make 390 at the crank! .....I say about 340-350 WHP is about right.

    he was referring to how much whp an STi would need to beat a cobra. not how much whp a cobra has.
