S/C GT vs. Terminator Cobra

How fast would a supercharged GT compared to a mildly modded, exhaust, intake, 03-04 cobra. because im debating if i should just trade in the gt or sell it and buy a terminator cobra, or twin-turbo/supercharge the gt. right now i don't know what to do, im leaning more to a cobra, but how would they compare. do you guys know?

For me...the answer is simple. Cobra all the way. The internals are all set for you to have up to 600+ hp and not sweat about it. The GT will take some tweaking to safely handle all the extra power as the internals are not forged like the Cobras.

Even though it may seem biased, Cobra. It is ready for the power. It has been proven many times over to be able to handle the power. It is the right choice.

EDIT: I hit the dyno with mine tomorrow and I plan to video tape it. It may help you decide too. Sounds killer. The whine. The exhaust. Can't wait to see the final numbers. I just hope it is somewhere in the 450-475 range...so my port will put me over 500 next year. The only bad thing...96 is the forcast for tomorrows temp. Dammit.

Plus, for less than 30k, you can pick up an already modded 03/04 cobra. I happen to know where there is a 10 second cobra for 27k. Sonic blue...gorgeous car. Man, I wish my house was sold in NY...I would pic this up as my other car...I so need a coupe as a dd. You can't go wrong here in my opinion.

my basic mods

Vortech S trim 10psi non intercooled
JBA headers
SLP catted X pipe
Magnaflow catback
Dragon plenum
70mm t-body
stock heads, cams, and lower intake.

i made 380rwhp and 377rwtq with a dirty airfilter through an automatic with an a/f ratio of 11.3:1. so i can easily make more power with some fine tuning. i ran a 12.697@110.06 with a race weight of 3740 and stock gears on street tires. my car is also a vert.

hope that helps.

go with the cobra if you want to have a reliable HIGH hp/tq car and they are far more rare I know I wont be settling for a GT when I get my next car.
