2001 cobra with a 6 speed.

So I'm a huge fan of the cobra. I came across a 2001 cobra with 60k miles for only 13k only thing that has me questioning myself from buying it, is that it has a 6 speed in it. And boost gauges as if it was FI so I feel like it was beat.. Guys think it's a good deal? Then again if the gears are 4.10 or even 4.27?? Won't it be a bit slower ? Than if it had the 5 speed? Btw the car is in good shape in and out and sounds aggressive. Just hat the dealership was about to close so I couldn't test drive it just had the chance to start her up.. Please give me advice wouldn't want to pass up on a cobra for a low price.

Modded car with a boost gauge at a dealership... in my experience this SCREAMS problem child but it might not be. If you are experienced with these cars and know what to look for it might be ok.

As for that 6 speed. Its likely out of an 03/04 Cobra which had a VERY low 1st gear at 2.66 so 4.10 or even 4.30s are kind of required for a NA 4.6L running one. They have a .62 final drive to keep the RPM down on the highway but the real purpose of the 6 speed is not for some ungodly low overdrive, its the 5th gear in between 4th and 6th.

At any rate, go take a look at it but I'd be very very wary. IMO, it was put "back to stock" or damn near by the previous owner but it could possibly be a car that was being set up for boost and the guy ran out of money and sold it to the dealer. You never know.

edit: And are you sure it was "boost gauges"? Lots of ppl, myself included, put aftermarket oil and water gauges in these cars because the stock gauges are horrible.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
