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


Review

The 03/04 SVT Cobra Mustang is a docile car under normal driving, get on the gas and the car just flat out scoots. The handling is much improved over the previous Mustangs & Cobra's. The interior is basically the same since 94 save for the seats, which are well bolstered (maybe even too much). When I purchased my first Mustang, a 1998 Mustang GT, the saleman told me once you own a Mustang, you'll always have one. He was right and this is my 3rd Mustang since then and the Cobra is above and beyond the shoulders of the GT. My words give the car no justice, go test drive one and don't be scared to lay into the throttle a little bit.


Best Features

Gotta love the SuperCharged DOHC 4V 4.6L that's hand assembled by 2 guys at Ford SVT plant. The next best feature is the 6 speed (T-56).


Worst Features

The interior is a little bland or maybe I'm used to it since it has been mostly unchanged since 1994, but still nice. Some fit & finish improvements, but nothing major.

Review

think a stock svt rocks? for a mer 3500 extra i hit 502 rwhp, thats around 600 at the crank! rpmoutlet.com has the kit plus you need the borla cat back exhaust and bassani x-pipe w/high flow cats, lil loud tho. get rid of that stock long throw shifter for the pro 50 short throw, big diff! if your worried about warentee issues, can easly be put back to stock even without having a p1000 code in the computer!


Worst Features

hydo clutch, better tires, 18' wheels

Review

What a great job SVT did when they rethought the 2003-2004 Cobra. They car is smooth and FAST! The pickup is unbelievable, and the handling is fantastic....hard to believe the chassis dates back to the lowly Fairmont! I can't wait to see what they do with the new Cobra in 2007


Best Features

Performance!! Handling and braking.


Worst Features

Needs better door panels - quality is not up to the price on the current ones. Even the 1994 GT had better panels and fittings.
