I like your logic here. So in your eyes, everyone on the planet should be rockin an '03/'04 cobra with a pulley and tune. Guess its time to trade in the f-bod, huh?

Let me ask you a question here, have you ever been forced to do the best with what you have? Maybe some people here can't afford sports cars or the insurance. It's great that you can afford both but be considerate of others and stop criticizing.

Boy did you take that wrong.

03/04 Cobras are very expensive still.

My pint is take an 88 5.0 and drop half that cash into it and it will be faster than the Cobra.

My Point was these are easy cars to build, lots of people do it, so companies make many more parts for them. This equals cheaper exhaust systems, or intakes... etc. Just little stuff, plus almost anythign you can think of is available for them... where as if you are driving say... a Probe... you dont have 10 manufacturers that make a strut tower brace for it... stuff liek that.

how many times do i have to repeat that the 3.0 cant do much of anything... less then a supercharger which i believe only gives you about 200 horspower to the rear wheels...

Sounds like a pretty boring existence to me. Up next we have a black fox body running a blue fox body and after those we'll have the red fox run the green one. Foxes rock but they are everywhere. Why is it so wrong for people to make the car THEY want a little bit faster? How about understanding a little orginality eh?


P.S. Die thread Die

I have a 4x2 and it's not a street truck.
I was also in a street fight when I was a teenager I suppose and got hit by a 2x4. When I was getting my cast the hospital employees kept saying "You got hit by a truck?" And these are the people whom hold our lives in the balance of life and death at times...we're all screwed!!!

Point being, there's a difference! Which would you rather get hit by? A 4x2 or 2x4?
