2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Have only had one mechanical failure. Twisted the rear axle shaft splines at the drag strip using drag slicks. This was not the fault of the vehicle. Normal driving would never do this.


Best Features

The performance level surpasses any other vehicle 3 times the price (Corvette, Porsche, etc.). The seats are great.


Worst Features

Better quality interior.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

The modability of this car makes it the best pick for a high performance daily driver. For only a few hundred dollars (cold air intake, exhaust) you can make over 40-50 HP in power improvements. About $500 will get you a supercharger pulley and tune which can net well over 100HP added to the rear wheels of the car. The stock forged internals of the motor have proven to be reliable to 700+HP. Great car to tinker with. See SVTPerformance or Modularfords for forums and articles on modding. :)


Best Features

The 8.5:1 compression forged motor. 6 speed T-56 transmission. Cobra front seats. A back seat when you need it!


Worst Features

More offerings for the sound system woud be great. An option to have no sound at all would be even better. The Mach 460 (standard) is pretty good, but not for hardcore audiophiles.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

I can't think of a better version of the car to end the sn95 chassis with. It's the only car that I still have a big grin on after I get out. Handles excellent on the auto-x track and is killer in the 1/4 mi.


Best Features

The sound of the S/C, the seats and 6M transmission.


Worst Features

Lower weight, subframes from factory

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This is simply the most satisfying car I've ever driven. It's hard to believe how much performance for the dollar you get with this car and I can take my family out to enjoy a cruise with the top down. There isn't another car that can do what this car does for less than twice the cost.


Best Features

Power, Handling, everyday driver

Review

Well, almost a year now since I had it. It hasnt done me wrong yet. Only a shock swap that had to be done cause of the quality NYC roads we have here (yea right) Besides that, cars doing great, especially after a K&N oil filter. The motorcraft was fine, but, I suggest avioding FRAM. Made it feel sugglish after only 1000 miles after I changed the oil. Can definately feel a difference when using the K&N one.


Best Features

The engine and suspension tuning are my favs.


Worst Features

Spruce up the interior. Slotted discs with 4 piston front/2 piston rear, carbon fiber composite hood, relocation of oil filter, gets messy when doing oil change.
