Difference between 99' and 01' Cobra?

Is there any engine difference between the 99' and 01' Cobra's?

I'm just gonna stick with my V6 as it is for now, no mod, and upgrade to a Cobra next Winter. Just wondering with any difference.

Thanks guys.

99's had problems with factory-rated horsepower. Ticked a lot of people off. 01 is supposed to have fixed that. Other than that, I dunno .

There was no 00 cobra besides the R. Ford lost horsepower they were supposed to have on the cobras so they took a year off. If you can find a 00 cobra it's worth a million

Get yourself a 03-04 Mach1 and you will have the 01 Cobra Engine along with the Shaker hood, and it is very appealling too, talking from recent experience here...

I am pretty sure the Mach1 does not have a cobra engine.

305 hp 32V 4.6L V8, it sure does. people have dynoed them at 320 hp though, I guess Ford didnt want to get into the same HP rating mess again. If i got a new car I would get a Mach 1 and stick a Vortech or Paxton under the hood.

on a side note: I saw in motortrend a turbo conversion for the '03 cobra. it cost $5000 and brought the 390 hp cobra to a whopping 400 hp, hahahaha

I'm sorry to all the non believers of the non 01 cobra engine being in the mach1 03-04', but here is your sign!

yup basically, just doesnt have the bottom end of the cobra engine...and that is the reason they did not give it the badge of the SVT vehicle... kinda stupid, has the same internals, except for a few things they left off unpurposely to have that little distinctive differance, minus the noticable....

Here is some info on the specs: http://www.mach1registry.com/specs/specs.htm

Its basically the same identical engine the 99-01's had in them for the Cobras I believe...

I'm not sure when Ford started the IRS system on the Cobra. That might be a difference.

Not sure about wether the block is aluminum or iron. Judging by the compression ration the heads must be aluminum. And it will makes most power at higher RPMs. Since there is no blower, I don't think they have forged pistons in it. Most likely a aluminum rod with the piston. And I believe the crank is iron.

Cobra got IRS in '99. '01+ are a tad improved, and the '03 is improved and has 31 spline half shafts instead of the old 28 splines they used up til them. Def. needed with the power they are making.

99 and 01 cobras had a forged crank.

the mach 1 is a "detuned" cobra engine. Although it is supposed to be very underratd so thedetuning thing is probably a myth.

SVT made the Mach 1, so Im sure that its the same engine. Why would they say theres a cobra engine in a car that isnt a cobra? :duh: think...

however, mach 1 > cobra due to the solid axle and 3.55 out back. (not 03 cobra just 99 and 01).

looks like the block is aluminum to me(I might not know the difference tho)

so its the same thing.

I dont honestly believe SVT made the Mach1, otherwise they would have made such a stink about adding it to the SVT Family ( PARTY POOPERS)

And yes the new 04's come with the Aluminum Heads, the 03 was the first yr with plastic heads for the Mach1 ( )... dont know qwite why, but they did it this way!

KrazyPony,

I agree with choosing a Mach1 but they don't make them in convertibles. I wouldn't buy a coupe Mustang. Just not my style. I have a silver convertible right now.

Yeah, I know the 03 Cobras are bad ***, but I don't think I will be able to afford one by next year. I'm just thinking of getting an 99/01 convertible. I would be happy with that. I know the 03 is supercharged, but either way... a Cobra is niiiiccccee! Wouldn't you agree?

No, SVT did not make the Mach 1. It doesn't it really matter though.

SVT is just a basement shop of Ford tech with cool toys and gadgets to play with. It is still Ford

I read somewhere that it was a 98 Cobra engine, I don't know how true that is.
