    '01 SUPERCHARGED SALEEN OR '03 CHARGED COBRA

    Which one would you buy and why.

    '01 supercharged Saleen or '03 superchared Cobra.

    I have a chance to buy either at the same price. They both have 21,000 miles on them and are well taken care of.

    Are the engine and drive trains that much different?

    Thaks

    Huge difference between the two.
    Cobra has 4v engine and forged crank, Saleen is a 2V.
    Cobra has an IRS, Saleen SRA
    Cobra has a T56, Saleen is a 5-speed.
    The Cobra is the better handling and faster car with way better road manners. Also it can handle WAY more power and with simple bolt ons can make 500+ rwhp and well over 600+ with a twin screw. The Saleeen is pretty close to max hp untill you build a stronger bottom end.
    Hope it helps
