2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Big fan of the Ford SVT division. Traded in my '02 Lightning for '04 Cobra convertible. Many reasons, but last of the Dearborn Mustangs, IRS, massive HP, SVT break. Not disappointed. Did add Magnaflow cat backs, looking for Steve McQueen Bullitt Mustang sound. Close. Also, improves breathing to redline. Overall, lots of fun. Neighbors jealous. Hair not falling out as quickly.... I am anxiously awaiting the next round of offerings from the SVT group. GT is slightly out of budget, but love the prototype Lightning and look forward to seeing the magic they work on the new Mustang. Wish SVT had done the Marauder. Lots of potential wasted there.

2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A MEAN MACHINE,THAT WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE,THEN LOOK AT THE COBRA. HAVING OWNED 4 MUSTANGS PREVIOUSLY, THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST.THE DESIGN MAYBE VIEWED AS OUTDATED BY SOME,BUT I FIND THIS BODY STYLE NICER THAN THE 05.THE INTERIOR IS ADEQUATE AND COMFORTABLE(I'M6'4" AND FIT REASONABLY WELL).WHAT MAKES THIS MUSTANG STAND OUT IS A 400 HP MONSTER UNDER THE HOOD.THIS CAR WILL BE THE ONE THAT WE MUSTANG FANS SAY FORD PUT IT ALL TOGETHER.THERE MAY NOT BE MANY LEFT,BUT I SAY IF YOUR WAITING FOR SOMETHING BETTER, YOU MAY BE WAITING A LONG TIME.


Best Features

MY FAVORITE FEATURE IS THE SUPERCHARGED 4.6 ENGINE.ADD TO THAT A 6 SPEED, AND YOUR GET UP AN GO, JUST GOT UP AN WENT.


Worst Features

THE INTERIOR COULD USE A CLASSIER FEEL. ITS NOT HORRIBLE,JUST PLAIN.

Review

I am selling my 2001 GT and am now into a sweeeet Mystichrome packaged 04 Cobra Convt. This baby isn't just another pretty face either. (The paint does turn heads everywhere I go!) The SVT team did a wonderful job of improving performance, handling and reliability. The upgraded engine and suspension are truly magnificient! The 03s heads problem did not reappear in the 04. The rwhp seems improved from the 03 as well. Friends of mine with the 03 Cobra dynoed out @ 360-367 rwhp stock. The two 04s I have seen dynoed, including mine, were 375 & 377 rwhp stock. Needless to say, some mild mods are in the near future.


Best Features

Easy to mod, great acceleration, 6 gears, much improved handling, the blower whinin', 6 CD stereo playin' my favorite tunes and pure topless fun as the Mystichrome turns heads!!


Worst Features

Bring the clutch and stick shift closer to the driver and provide better wheels and tires (18" x 10") ultrahighperformance Potenzas for example!

2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

These cars are great. In the past, Camaro and Firebird have litterally embarassed Mustang. But now, in 2003, Ford made a comeback, even though their Mustang found itself without any competition. I will petty any Camaro SS driver or "Firechicken" driver when they mistake this car for one of the previous models. Then, now in 2004, the Mustang finds itself head to head with an old rival, the legendary Pontiac GTO. The Cobra still wins of course... but what will happen when Dodge comes out with the Charger... yes, they are comming out with their dead Charger once again... who will win, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.


Best Features

My favorite features are the 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, and the under-ratings; ex. 390bhp @ 6000rpm, its really about 420- 425 bhp @ 6000rpm.


Worst Features

I think it needs the rear deck spoiler wing that the Cobra R has. Without it, they are limited to 155 mph, but, take away the limited, and 180mph would not be out of the question. Infact, it would soar above 170 mph.
