    Just doing a poll to see what everyone thinks. Basically my question is if you saw one of these vehicles one day and the owner told you said vehicle was making 600/600 using the factory engine(can be built to handle the added stress) or motor swap which vehicle would Impress you more?

    93-95 Lightning

    03/04 Cobra

    07-?? Shelby Gt500 Cobra

    Now as far as myself its a tie between the 94-98 and 99/01 Cobras :coolman:
    My reasoning is because we are the underdogs, the red headed step childs, the looked over(to a certain extent)(Also IMO). I expect a 03/04 to make some pretty good power and also the Gt500's since we both know its easy for them.

    I also pretty much expect the 93 cobra's to pack something because with their body styles you never know what they have.

    I would never expect the sn95 or new edge to make that kind of power. Seems like alot of people just jump to 03/04's or something else all together. Although there are alot of you all out there who do represent the underdog group well:beer:

    93 cobra with a stock block making 600 hp would be impressive. Well at least until the stock block split.

    The poll is what is the most impressive, not what you prefer. I think a couple of people forgot that.

    none.

    longevity/durability is what impresses me. The fact you can make 600whp day in and out on a car that maintains full stock drivability is what is really impressive.

    IMO any engine can make that sort of power for a pull or two if you feed it enough boost or nitrous (or both) and pray to the gods it holds together long enough to put down numbers to impress your buddies. Unless the owner knew this and was intentionally trying to kill a motor because a built one was ready to be transplanted that night.

    2nd Gen L because the stock rods would never handle that much for more than 10 seconds.

    Changed it up some. For the folks that voted 03/04 why is that more impressive to you than a 99/01?

    I stated that the engines can be modified with aftermarket components or even a swap out.

    i made 560 on a stock blocked 331 with a conservative tune. im sure 600 can be done but not sure many would risk it :lol1:
