    People who think that I should be able to spank any 5.0 Stang that comes my way. Well I havent officially "lost" to a 5.0 yet but I know of quite a few that will leave me in the dust. Granted that they are a few hundred pounds lighter, have a cubic inch advantage (stroked), and either running spray or a blower. I dont mind losing to one but I do mind it when you have some jackass who says "Oh, you lost to a 5.0!" Like ts some big deal.
    Id take a loss to a fellow Stanger any day over a FWD import!!!

    Whats the biggest thing you guys hate about Cobra ownership???

    You should have no problem taking 99% of Foxes (save the ones with lots of spray + power adder + thousands of dollars of work).

    The biggest thing I hate about owning a Cobra is the fact that I can't afford all the mods I want for it :cuss: :rolling:

    That's why you get your boyfriend or husband or significant other to buy those things for you... get them swept up into the mod addiction!

    I have just the opposite problem...

    I'm at the local kragen/autozone, buying some small stuff... Guy walks up.

    "Is that a Cobra?"

    "Yep"

    "Wow. Nice car. Does it have a 5.0?"

    "Nope. It's a 4.6"

    "too bad. 5.0's are FAST!!! Why'd you buy a cobra without a 5.0?"

    :lol1:

    my gripe is that the minute someone sees the cobra markings, people feel intimidated and dont want to race me. It truly sux!

    No its a little ways from stock...(480+rwhp). I think that its because when people try to compare the SC'd 4.6 to the NA 5.0 the 4.6 has a certain "mystique" about it...For example I had a guy driving a bpu-EVO and he says to me, "dude, your car is like the Supra of domestics!" and I replied with, "thanks, I think...Well the only difference is that our hp #'s and e.t's actually coincide with each other! After that I received a :??:
    So I guess that losing to the 5.0 (even modded) will hurt our "Supra" status? :shrug:

    99% is a big percentage to win over a fox. that's the thing about 03-04 cobra owners. most think they will take most foxes which is true, but not 99% of foxes
