    Well, for the stock 10 bolt rearend, the highest gear offered is the 4.10's. I chose 3.73's for two reasons:

    It will allow me to run 125mph in the 1/4 before shifting to 5th.

    It allows me to have better chances when doing rolling races.

    I am in the mnidst of iunstalling a vortech S trim and alcohol injection kit, so 125mph should be attainable in April.

    Well, you'll never have to get a room at a motel on long trips, you'll just have to bring a blanket and you can sleep on the dash...

    I traded in my 01 WS6 for an 03 Cobra and couldnt be happier. It costs an arm and a leg to mod a WS6 and for $3k in mods my Cobra kills Z06's.

    So stock to stock how would you compare the Performance of your old WS6 to your new Stock 03 Cobra and any other positive and negative feedback on either car you can share...

    Stock for stock the WS6 is easier to hook up and the Hurst shifter is much better than the POS in the Cobra. On the other hand once you learn to launch the Cobra it will reel in the WS6 pretty fast. The ram air hood on the WS6 is mean looking, while the Cobra is a sleeper. A lot of f-body and vette owners thinks its just another mustang. But since most Cobra owners mod thier cars after the break-in period its really an academic question.

    I have several buds with Trans Ams (lightly modded) but not ws6. They have great feeling powerbands. As others said, congrats on staying with American Iron. Enjoy the car and when you see someone with a 03 cobra, just remember it's ok to come in 2nd.

    AS I don't have a 03 cobra, I remember it often.

    If you remove the cats, maybe you can flatten out that hump for your passenger. A hammer might work. J/K Nice purchase -have fun.
