The only, repeat, the only thing I would ever do to a Cobra body-wise is side skirts...and it would take alot for that...just my opinion on that one

On a GT, or a V6 I could see it. On a cobra, I don't think I could take it. I think it would take away from the car's mystique. It would look like a saleen since they have simular hoods (afterall, the cobra hood is styled after the saleen one), but I think it would bring the car down a level instead of up.

There is a cobra here in BR that has V6 badging on it and he even hid the tail pipes so you couldn't tell it was duals. Followed him to work this morning and watched him destroy a 95-ish Z28. It was quite entertaining. His exhaust note was even quiet. I chased him down instead of going directly to work and we got quite a good laugh about it all.

FYI, there will be no SVT products in 2005 and 2006. The Lightning will be out in mid-late 2006, but it will be the 2007 model. The cobra won't make a return until 2007.

Put the saleen exhaust on a cobra then...about 800 bucks...still well below the 50-60k price of the saleen.

the only way to get rid of the whine is to remove the eaton (roots style) supercharger and replace it with a quieter vortec (centrifugal (sp?)) supercharger.

What is it about the whine that you don't like? That is a kick *** feature in my mind. I can't get enough of it...

There are guys on SVTPerformance.com that are selling their 03 and 04 cobras. Some are stock, but most are modified. Some even have the blowzilla/KB/or whipple supercharger replacing the stock eaton. I would check them out as most are under 10k miles. I have seen them go anywhere from $24k - $32k depending on the mods.

Other than that, I would do some searching as you may be able to find a left over 03 still sitting on a lot. There are some still around which blows my mind since I had to do a 3 state search to find someone with one left to sell. I think brand new 03s are going for around 28-31k depending on how good you are at haggling. In 05, the price might go up since there will be no SVT for 2 years, but then again, it may go down because of the demand for the new bodystyle GTs. You never know really.
