99 Cobra vs. 2000 Cobra R?

So what is the difference in the two besides cosmetics and price? Don't they both have the same engine but different intake manifolds?

Re: 99 Cobra vs. 2000 Cobra R?

the 2000 cobra is has a 5.4L DOHC motor that is quite rare (at least parts of it), the front air damn, the hood, the v6 rear, the wing, the larger gas tank (and different gas tank design), the side exhaust, the rims/tires, the brakes, the suspension is different, the springs/shocks/struts, the interior seats, the sound deadening is removed (i think at least), there is no rear seat, 6 speed T-56 transmission, 385hp/tq (but made more than that), no radio or AC, and a few other things, basically a track car from ford that cost 50k new~ and they only made 300 of them all in red.

Re: 99 Cobra vs. 2000 Cobra R?

The 99 is quite possibly the worst cobra ever made (I owned one) because of the recall there were no 2000 cobras made, they were to busy fixing their hp mistake.But more than made up for it in 2003 with the introduction of the Terminator which was under rated.

I didn't mean it like that, you can make any car into a sweet ride it just sucked coming from the factory like that.People kinda look at it as the black sheep but you can always make it better.

You're thinking of the 2002. There were no regular 2000 Cobras made besides the mules that were quickly done away with.

I'd kill for a 2002 Cobra front bumper too.

Re: 99 Cobra vs. 2000 Cobra R?

Besides the horsepower mess up by ford what else was wrong with the 99 Cobra. I mean it's really hard to find parts for it but besides that I haven't really found anything wrong with it.

Re: 99 Cobra vs. 2000 Cobra R?

Yupp, there were 300 made.

The 99 cobra, once it was given the revised intake setup from Ford, is no different than the 01 Cobra aside from 28 spline inner and outer shafts on the rear halfshaft setup. A few subtle body differences but you really have to know what to look for.

These 300 were only sold to racers and important folds.
