plus carmax is a crooked dealer... they say none of their cars have been wrecked, but in truth... haha... let's just say that i got my stang from carmax, and after it was paid off, i found out that it had been wrecked by the previous owner...

don't trust carmax

Is the Cobra black?

I think I might have seen that same Cobra listed somewhere.

If your V6 Accelerated faster than that Cobra from a stop run away from the cobra very very fast

that car isnt 320 N/A the 99 models were way over rated. I would never buy a 99 cobra only 01. I think they are below 300 crank hp

prob best thing you passed on that 99' it had alot of TSB's reported such as a engine tick and a few other items aswell.

And for the v6 to get up and go quicker than the Cobra...uhhh i think you was sleeping at the wheel or there was sumthing realy wrong with it...

engine tick is very common with ford cars.

I have seen that the 99-02 Cobra blocks have some probs and that they do tick more then others, also seen many that have there bottom end open from a SC... the 03/04s are the best yet. as for carmax, that store is dumb, come to indy we can do ya right haha. just FYI tho, if you have a new car and try to trade it in or sellit your not going to get as much as you want. ever.

The tick normally comes from a piston sticking, and its rather unique or distinctive to hear...

A lot of the 03 Mach1's had it to in the beginning of the production run's as well.

the 99s actually will have over 320 hp if you have the fix that ford did for them. My only problem with the 99+ cobras is the IRS. Wheel hop is a biatch
