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 ass, 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?

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