A good friend of ours just had his '03 Cobra on the dyno. It got us wondering. Are these cars super sleeper values when it comes to serious Mustang performance?
We'd say without a doubt. In fact, they're likely the top screaming deal in today's market if you're looking for a Mustang that is already a strong runner in stock condition and can be transformed into a truly outrageous performance machine for much less than the cost of other cars. We're planning a future story on the recent dyno test session that took place at Swanson Performance (swansonperformance.com) where our subject car cranked out 567 horsepower at the rear wheels.
Tell us what you think. Do 03-04 Cobras occupy a special place in the Mustang performance picture? And are they at the top of the heap among all '79-'04s? Why or why not?
