Not yet but did you see HP TV this weekend? The supposedly LS1 equal 05 GT put down 255 stock.........welcome to 1993 LT1 territory finally.

After exhaust and intake it put down a more respectable 271. Still far from stock LS1 territory.

Havent run one yet but my cousins has a silver 05 gt. it sucks. Plain and simple.

With the 5spd auto i could drop to first rev it and hammer her and nothing. No wheel spin but second gear is nice pull for a mustang though.

I beat a blue auto one by about 5 cars in the ta, then ran a coworkers new one last weekend, his is a stick but a put 2-3 on him, up to 100 and I was starting to pull harder so may have been ugly for him. :twak:

My friend has a 98 GT with PI heads, M5 swap, longtubes, 4:10 gears and said he ran one from a roll and pulled about a length.

They definitely have better potential than the 2V 4.6s... that extra valve there gives you some great possibilities. I'm eager to see what limitations they'll run into though, they hit 10s pretty quickly.
I think he got the 10 with a shot not sure how much. I know he ran an 11 with gears, suspension stuff and some kind of CAI (maybe a chip of some sort).

Yah the regular 2 valve 4.6's are hard to get goign fast stock some kid at dyno day put down like 193. But some guy with a 2 valve 97 cobra put down liek 259 or somewhere in there. And it was cammed to it sounded nice.

Cobra's are 4 valve motors (well the 4.6 cobra's).

funny you pasted this thread. i was coming home from work mybe 2 hours ago and ran into one on the highway. an older guy, probably 50-60, pulls up next to me and nods his head. at first i thought he was just sayin nice car, then he stomped it, i was like wtf?? so i went along with it, and lets just say the race didnt last long after i nailed it. i slowed down for him to catch up but he wouldnt roll up near me again, lol.

theyre stock numbers are pretty pathetic, i must say. i read a magazine article when they first came out and it dynoed 260. but as you guys said, i think there is potential there. im waitin to see what the new cobra can do

Heard any stories about the new Mustand dynoing low? I've heard some horror stories about 03 Cobras that dynoed below 320 .
Every 03 I've heard of dynos in the 360-370 rwhp range. They run very strong from the factory, but weigh a lot.

Solid axle? are you kidding me? Must be 1/4 mile whores...
yeah but when ya think about it, it just turns it into a GT suspension wise. so the handling isnt that ad. plus those IRS's cant handle hard launching.

I'd guess it's not so much out of want but necessity, the Cobra IRS can't take that much shit when it comes to a hard launch.
