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


Review

bought my cobra used with 4600 miles.
had the drivers side head replaced
under warranty at 5700 due to valve
guide wear. ford has a TSB for this
issue. you can tell if a cobra has the
problem by listening for a tick that is
present during idle. it is NOT injector
noise but a moderately loud ticking.
anyway its fixed and i like the car for
what it is, but dont listen to these
other reviews saying it will dust a z06
because it wont, not stock anyway.
these cars are also very heavy and hard
to launch out of the hole.


Best Features

lots of torque, the exterior design is great, subtle and understated. the blower whine is addictive.


Worst Features

get quality control in line, lots of rattles and the mach 460 system sucks. i also dont like the suede/leather combo, i like all leather because if you spill something, its not a holy bitch to clean up.

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


Review

You must drive one to experience it.
The car has outstanding potential for
increasing performance, but even stock
it's a rush. I currently have just
under 3000 miles on it and it is still
breaking in.


Best Features

Engine. Engine. Engine. Engine.


Worst Features

None, leave it to each Stang nut to do his/her own thing. That's what makes Mustangs great.

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


Review

This machine will blow the doors off of
just about anything on the road, short
of a Ferrarri. With very minor
modifications, the robust cast iron V8
block will take a significant amount of
more boost. A smaller pulley, free
flowing cat back exhaust system, and
new air filter will have this pony up
around 500 HP. My only complaints are
the shoddy trim quality and dated
design of the interior, and
the "blender-like" whine of the
supercharger. Overall, a very fun
vehicle to drive
and it's certainly a head turner. Ford
has grossly under stated it's
horsepower at 390 HP, which is actually
near 430 HP.


Best Features

The 112 cu. in. Eaton roots type supercharger, adding 110+ HP to the naturally aspirated 4.6L 4V predecessor.


Worst Features

New interior design and more careful attention to interior trim fit and finish.
