    Do not use g-tech numbers to compare. Something is wrong if you cannot flat out walk a stock '01 Cobra from a roll.

    ...

    Something is definetely wrong. either you or the car....

    I didnt know how to drive very well in 02 when I first bought mine and I managed a 12.76 and then a 12.56 when I went to BFG Drag radials.

    If you spin the tires at all though your 1/4 mile time will be in the low 13s..

    Too bad you cant get to a track. Its easier to know whether its you or the car when we can see your 60ft as well as you MPH and 1/4 mile time.

    When were you shifting? What RPM? to get the most out of it stock I seemed to do my best just over 6000 rpms....not right at the red line as I first thought......

    ALSo in warmer weather this car definitely runs slower. I think im about .3 slower when its warm out and my car is hot.

    Chip, pulley and drag radials turned my 12.76 into an 11.70! (in cool weather with a cool engine)

    What kind of tubing did you use for your homeade air system? Could the tube be collapsing under a WOT run? I had an issue with my old 89 Gt that I had done a homeade RamAir system. I kept getting ****ty times, and couldnt figure it out. Then someone noticed my tube was collapsing. Worth a look...

    peace

    Friend just got yellow 04, raced from 40 to about 120 and i could hold him about a fender or so. Given he is bone stock. This was done in a modded Mach 1 n/a.. And for the record no driving issues on either part.

    With all those mods and traction, King, I bet your car is dipping into the 12's, so it's not hard to believe you faired that well against him...your Mach is fast :nice:

    sounds like you can't drive, if both cars are stock or mostly stock you should win both. Maybe he's a better driver too.

    What? I've never heard of anyone losing power through a CAI on a 03/04 Cobra. there have been issues with certain CAI because of poor design, but it's a GOOD mod without a tune.
