Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

short of the bottle or a supercharger (or great traction and all the bolt ons) i dont see you getting a full second off your time.. Your 60ft times need work though 2.3 is horrible, running a 2.0 will get you another half second off your times. He should be capable of running high 7s in the 8th as well though.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

If you can drive and he sucks at driving, a 150 shot will get you what you are looking for...assuming you get traction off the line. Another member here has an 06 gt auto with a 150 shot and he is able to get down the track faster than me time wise, but I'm the first to admit I can't launch my car for ****. However, my trap speed is faster than his.

So, cheapest would be a decent size shot of spray. Other than that, you will need a super charger.

The bottle is about the cheapest way to do it. Just be careful...

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

It's cheaper than any forced induction. It's not cheap due to the fact you have to rent dyno time and get a custom tune to make it work. And with nitrous running about 4-5 dollars a pound (give or take some change) it will cost you 'bout $50.00 to fill it up(10 lbs bottle). Giddyup is right...it may or may not do the trick. It may not even be worth it. One other thing that wasn't mentioned is the rear end ratio. But then you get into drivability issues. A combo of the two (say 3.73 gears and a 100 shot of nitrous) could do it. But beating a Cobra won't be cheap.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

you need traction and gears, light nitrous to match that 1/8mi time. you need to work on the driver mod too, get those 60ft's better.

IMO 03/04 Cobras are geared ****ty 1st and 2nd plus 3.55's out back. 1/8mi really is a crappy test of a Cobra's ability, you need to take advantage of that, exploit that weakness and make it your strength.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

3.31's??? No wonder your 60ft times are bad. In fact, you must be a half way decent driver to get them where they are. You have two choices...
1) turn the car in for a 6 cylinder, and get good gas milage.
2) use the car for what it is, and suffer with bad gas milage.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

eveh with 3.31s you should be capable of 2.1 60ft times~ I mean 99-04 v6s with 3.27s and about the same first gear can do that~ so im sure you can.

Just takes practice, good tires, and a decent track.

better and wider tires, gears, etc. can all help make that better.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

well the main problem is my wife dont want me to do anything that efect the warrenty....but what she dont no wont hurt her right! ill probley start with the c&l racer CAI and a tunner probley diablosport predater, and the 150 shot of juice. if a stock 5.0 can drop from a 15.3 to a 13.6 with a 150 shot it should help me reach my goal. next will be some 3.73's or 4.11's, a catted x pipe and jba mufflers and maybe some headers.

whats a good tuner for the s197's, and what gears would you recomend.
my cousin is running 8.4's with his 05 with full headers o/r x pipe, slp loudmouth, tunner, and cai, and 4.11's with 20" wheels

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

I don't mean to sound like too much of a dick, but your 1/8 mile times sound pretty weak. I really think you need to polish up on your driving, especially if your wife is less than 2 tics behind you. I think with just the CAI, an aggressive 93 octane tune, and 4.10s, you should be capable of duplicating your buddy's times without having to do nitrous. His times do not seem very impressive either given the car, as he should easily be sub 8 seconds in the 1/8th. Long story short, get a few mods, and practice driving.

umm you are a idiot. i drive just fine and my wife is awsome at driving. read all the replys before you comment, if you did you would relize that the cobra ran a 8.3 and to me that is a sub 8 secounds in the 1/8. the time slips i posted were both modified mustangs, and if you notice they were both winners, hence the fact that me and my wife can drive since we were in a stock gt with 3.31 gears racing gt mustangs with full exhaust and mods and we still one. also if you read the whole thing you would see that the cobra ran a 8.3 with a slipping clutch and a whole in the inercooler, when the car was new it ran a best of a 7.79.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

I must have missed the part where you mentioned that the cobra has a slipping clutch and a whole (it's "hole", ******) in the intercooler. Was that written in invisible ink? With a 9.1, you'd be lucky to break out of the 14s in the 1/4.

ya u were right i guess i put that in another forum but my point was 9.1 in a stock gt with 3.31 is very respectable. i know the car is not fast hence the reason i started this thread. dont hate cause a girl can drive like my wife told the guy in the viper, "you want me to show you how to drive that thing?" i not saying iam god gift to driving but i can hold my own. for instance the last time at the track i drove 2 friends cars that i never had even drove before and i ran faster times then they did in thier own car. so instead of talking a bunch of sh-- maybe instead iam can intrest you in a lovely game of hide and go f--k yourself.

Stang gang, you do have very respectable times for running with 3.31's and being totally stock. Just keep your cool.

Agreed, also 1/8 mile times are not always indicative of 1/4 mile times. I have seen 05+ stangs that seemed like they could not get out their own way in an 1/8th shine in the 1/4...........Any way don't worry keep your cool!


ps in the future ask him if you interest him in a nice glass of "STFU"

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

Cobra's are fast cars and for your stock mustang good luck trying to beat it. The bottle will help, but if you don't build up the motor your taking a chance on blowing it up (seen it a few times). You can supercharge the car without building the motor, but you better have a real good tuner that knows what he's doing.
Here's a video of me racing a 03-04 cobra, but my car isn't stock either. Mods at the time of the video were Saleen S/C (421hp/409tq), JBA shorty headers, 3:73 gears, powerhouse D/S, rebuilt trans, CAI and the car is also an auto trans. Drag tires also.
I remember the driver shifting gears and that's when I was able to keep the lead on him. But it was a close race. I saw the driver later on and he couldn't believe that I beat him, then I told him what I had.

Re: HELP need to beat a cobra!!!

Adding an intake/tune, 4.10 gears, LCA will help. With those mods and practice you should knock 2 tenths off your 60' times and high to mid 8s will not be out of reach. As far as beating a SVT cobra, you are not unless you go F/I. I think stock they are putting down 360 HP/ 375tq at the wheel.
