Re: Undecided???

well w/the 01 cobra you'll have the nice seats compared to the gt and irs if it's still in the cobra along w/cobra brakes. depending how early in production the cobra was it might have the t45 vs t3650 trans. for 03 gt w/mach motor should still have the t3650 and it will have the revised c-heads, but normal gt interior.. if the original mach was a manual, the gt will have the forged crank. imo, i think the mach motor is better than the 99/01 cobra motor, mach's produce more tq from the intake manifold and the heads flow better.

Re: Undecided???

Yah see the thing is I love the cobra look but the gt has more goin for it I found out it has a stronger clutch in it to handle the mach motor Also has solid ax. Vs IRS the cobra has stock gears vs the gt having 373 also the gt has two tone custom paint and the interior is in much better shape than the cobra... Over all the gt has more mileage on body but less on motor than the cobra so thanks for helpin me make up my mind guys I'm goin with the gt...

Just make sure to do a cobra brake swap on the gt and you will be satisfied
