He let you off easy. That Terminator would have chewed your S197 up and spit it back out.

The 2003 Cobra had a supercharged 390 HP 4.6.

Yes, but what advantage did the '02 have? Not much if any... Of course I could be wrong.:wavey

i don't think there was an 02 but you can tell if it's an 03/04 if it's got the rounded rollpan in the back. at least that'd be the S197's view of it :eyebulge:

03-04s are the only ones that have the supercharged 390 horse 4v. The 01-02 have 320 4v, about the same engine as the 03-04 Mach 1s. They did not make a Cobra in 2000, only the limited production Cobra R.

i raced a 2003 cobra and we ran good together...this s197 will submit to noones tail lights...of course...you never know whats a real cobra anyway...we've all seen those weird wannabees who throw a dream badge on their cars..you know...318s that become m3s...500s that become 600s and even fieros that become lambos....so in retrospect who knows...maybe that was a blown v6 i ran with.:winks
