A: The Mustang would be my choice because of the tons of available parts and the massive torque potential.
Q: 2000 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R?
ok guys if you've seen my later posts i love cars and i take pride in building new ones, i just ordered and received a 2000 Ford Mustang Cobra R for 53,000 it came bone stock nothing to it, just for humor we all know they all come with the 4.6L 3V SOHC V8 well that isnt good enough i am thinking of pulling the supercharged 5.4L V8 out of my truck redoing the gears and tune and computer ecu setup and running it that way, i also have seen it is a very popular swap. my question is going to be though what aftermarket parts should i put into this? i already have a Whipple Supercharger on it thats it so far, makeing 15.0 PSI of boost i was thinking just letting ford take it over but anyone with better parts let me know thanks best answer goes to most thorough im me for pics of the car it is simply beautiful i even have pics of the swap
yes my mistake sry it is the 5.4L my god lol what parts could i put on there? best for equal power/torque ratio
A: Well have you ever thought of twin turbo charging it? I built one for a customer and it made close to 850 whp.. alot more than what a supercharged 5.4 engine would make
Q: 1995 Ford Mustang COBRA-R, what would be a fair purchase/sell price?
This car is a TRUE cobra R. 1 owner. Only 250 made in 1995. The only down side to the car is that the owner was forced into having to use it as a daily driver for a bit so it has approx 40,000 miles. If you know about the car you know its not one you can find pricing at cars.com etc. The car is owned by a close friend of mine who is going to possibly have to sell it, so im trying to find info for him...
A: Reasonably? I wouldn't offer more than around $5000 for it.
You may not consider it a fair sell price, but fair also takes into account the buyer's idea of fair. And $5k sounds fair to me.
Even if you could price it out via cars.com, or KBB, etc....those are suggested prices...not the prices that people will actually pay.
Though, I suppose you'll pick the answer that has the highest dollar value. So....I'll offer you $45,000 for it. At that point, it's no longer the least bit fair to me, but it'll satisfy your wallet.
I like the guy you chose on the other one though. All hyped up about a car. So it's a Cobra-R? Looks like a Mustang to me.
A $5,000 Mustang. :)
Q: horsepower and torque rating of 93 ford mustang cobra r?
A: 235 HP, 280 ft. lbs. torque
Q: Which car would be faster Ford Mustang Cobra SVT 2004 or Dodge Challenger R/T 2010?
If raced on a 1320 drag race, and that they both have manual transmission,
o also they are both stock...
A: "If raced on a 1320 drag race"
In other words, a completely pointless race.
What about driver reaction? Tires? Weather conditions? Driver shifting ability?
There's a lot more to a race than just transmission type and car....
Not that a 1/4th mile proves anything anyway....
Q: What Mustang Cobra R wheels?
How can I tell the difference from factory ford and knock offs??
I think they're the 03 04 cobra wheels.
How much are they worth in great shape. Just needs 2 front tires.
Also are the rears wider than the fronts?
A: Cobra R's I believe were only made twice, in '95 and '00. They had the same size rims front and back. Ford racing makes OE wheels for most cobra models. Just plug into "fordracing.com" and have a look around.
Q: What it the difference between the 1970 dodge challenger T/A and the R/T?
I cant quite figure out the difference between the 1970 dodge challenger R/T and the 1970 doge challenger T/A
but 1 more question. is the 1969 ford mustang mach 1 428 cobra jet ram air or the boss 420 better then each dodge challenger?
and what about the 1972 dodge charger
A: The Challenger was introduced in 1970 with two models:
SE formal hardtop
SE formal hardtop
The standard engine in the R/T was the 383 Magnum. Optional was the 440-4, 440 Six Pack, and 426 Hemi. The 340 was not available on the R/T, no matter what anyone tells you - they're wrong.
The base Challenger could be had with the Slant 6 or the 318 standard. From there, you could get the 383-2 and the 383-4 (almost like an R/T incognito). The 340 also was available on the base Challenger (hardtop and ragtop only) as the 340 Performance Package . . . and this is where the T/A comes in.
As Dodge decided to offer the 340 package on the base Challenger, it only makes sense that the Challenger T/A package was offered on the base Challenger. This package - only available on the hardtop - came with a fiberglass hood similar to the 1969 A12 Super Bees and Road Runners, special striping, side-exit exhaust (except in CA, I believe), a special spoiler package, and a 340 engine with Six Pack carburetors, among other heavy-duty equipment. This model was produced to certify certain modifications legal for Trans-Am racing (get it? T/A? But Pontiac already dibs for the name). The front and rear tires were of different sizes - very unusual at the time - and was the best-handling Challenger of them all. Despite a 1971 advertisement showing the T/A would return, none were built.
Regarding your Mustang question, I'd say the CJ is equivalent to the Challenger's Six Pack. Parts are much easier to find for the Mustang. The Boss 429 was practically hand-built, and in some ways it can't be compared to the Challenger because of the modifications that were required for it to be built. However, bone-stock Boss 429 cars tended to disappoint road testers at the time because it wasn't as fast as it looked (despite 13-second times, like a Hemi Challenger R/T). However, Boss 429s have been super-expensive for a very long time.
The 1972 Charger . . . depends on the model. There was the R/T replacement called the Rallye which had a 400 standard and could have a 340 and 440 optional (about 5 or so Six Packs were built before it was cancelled on the first week). You could also get the 440 on the SE. This was the first year for the low-compression engines, so 1971s tend to be more desirable but the 1972 have their own appeal and can still be fast.
Q: should Ford bring back the 351 cleveland or just give up trying to build a decent V8?
in Australia we have the Cobra R V8 block fitted to all our Ford V8's with our own designed quad overhead cams and what a disappointing slug it is it needs at least 4000rpm to get moving and it wont rev much past 5000rpm and forget trying to bust the quarter mile in anything under 15.3 seconds (thats on the new GT Falcon!) but the Clevo on the other hand has lots of mods and large powerband to play with and i have personally revved the damn thing out to 6800rpm (fairly stock ported heads, 750 carb) with the power coming on at around 2000 - 2500rpm and it tapering off at around 6500rpm, so doesn't it seem logical that they put the OHC on the Cleveland and bring it back before these fuel prices get to high to enjoy a nice V8?
A: I own a shop, a drag car & truck, and think this; I think Ford (and others) have come up with too little too late. I don't think waiting until the barn has burned to the ground to call the fire department will fix the problem. As we all know; the price of fuel is forcing the companies to go in an unpredictable direction. They are all scrambling to make the vehicle that will go the most miles on the least amount of fuel. As for an engine that has that kind of power band (slug) is all in the grind of the cam. There are too many aspects to get in to on here, but in short; the engine's power band is determined by the way the cam has been ground. A power band that is between 4,000 & 5,000 rpms is the way the cam has been set-up. Moving this around is the most common reason for all people who race to purchase an aftermarket cam in the first place. One must base the cam grind on many factors such as the vehicles weight, the ratio of the rearend, and the type of transmission being installed into the vehicle. Many aftermarket cams require the use of a stall converter to get the engine into its power band at the best engine rpm. The bore & stroke of the engine will also play an important role when installing a cam.
As for the 351 Cleveland, its a dead icon, and I doubt Ford will ever bring back any engine that will beat this one, but who knows? I for one, certainly would look forward to seeing a 351 Cleveland with overhead cams. It would be some engine.
Glad to add my 2 cents worth!!!
Q: Xbox 360 - Forza Motorsport 2 Vehicle Tuning?
I'm having a blast playing the game... just the tuning is getting my cars left in the dust. I own 3 Class U - full upgrades and they are: 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello, 2002 Nissan Tommy Kaira Skyline GT-R34, and 2002 Ford Mustang Cobra R
any help appreciated! thanks!
A: buy a gt40 and it is fast for it self. I don't really know how to tune cars but try to learn. good luck
Q: Will these wheels fit my 2003 Ford Explorer SPORT 4WD?
Hi guys, I own a 2003 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD V6. I've been contemplating on getting those Cobra R Replica's, but they are quite expensive for my college ass budget! So I've been looking around for some cheap new/ used rims. I came across these rims called "Maxxim Wonders". They yield the similar specs as the Cobra R's and they are quite nice!
1) I was just wondering if these will fit my explorer?
The rims are 18x8.5 although the width is 8J (what's that mean?). Offset is 15mm. 5x114.3. Seller claims it to fit the Ford Mustang, the Nissan 350z, and the Infiniti G35 coupe.
2) Will they be strong enough for my truck?
Thanks in advance!
A: That all depends on what you really want to do. I wouldn't consider going 4 wheeling across a rock infested course. You may not want to put them on a Race Track car. But every day driving shouldn't be a problem.
Q: why doesn't ford make the 5.4 dohc an option for mustangs?
i know its in the supercharged gt 500 and its a beast in the 2000 cobra r... but i think they should make it an option in maybe some kind of cobra in the future... oh and btw is the 2010 stang supposed to have a 5.0 dohc or is that in a limited producton or something
A: The biggest reason they don't probably has to do with CAFE standards. It would eat more gas for sure and it would add weight. If it had an aluminum block that would be awesome but then you are making the car more expensive which doesn't translate well in what is supposed to be an affordable sports car. Ford probably feels they are very competitive with the current 4.6 and why change things. The GT500 is a halo car, Ford probably doesn't make a bunch of money on GT500's but it attracts a lot of attention to the brand.
The 2010 Mustang GT will have basically what is now the Bullit motor. Possibly in 2011 the GT will receive the new 5.0 motor. Look for the Eco Boost V6 to make an appearance as well.
Q: Which model and toy cars do you think I should have?
I'm thinking of setting up a model car museum in my front room.I've been collecting model and toy cars for a couple of years and have quite a collection.I want the museum to be representative of motoring history,but I don't have a lot of room.
I have quite a few small models with an approximately 1:60 scale.The range of scales go up to 1:18,though I have one model(a Subaru Impreza Rally Car)which has a scale of 1:14.
Here are some other cars that I have:Ferrari FXX (based on the Enzo),Chevrolet SSR,Zent Toyota Supra,Mazda RX8,Triumph TR3 A, Porsche 356 Cabriolet Coupe,1999 BMW V12 LMR,1935,1959 Cadillac,Dodge Ram 1500 V8 Sport,Dodge Charger,Shelby Cobra,Suzuki GSX-R 4,Ford GT40,Talbot Lago Darracq,Dusenberg,VW Beetle. I have a few others which I haven't listed.
The car(s) you list can be from any age,any continent, they can even be famous film & TV cars, or concept cars which haven't yet and maybe even never will hit the showrooms.Could you also explain why you chose that car.
A: I would go for the TV / film related cars as they are easily recognisable.
Why not get a big dispaly case built and just rotate the collection?
Q: 1999 ford mustang for $5,000 with 120,000? (individual seller)?
i am looking to buy a 1999 mustang with 120000 miles on it for 5000 dollars. IT is all leather, very clean, has Cobra R wing, new brakes, blue colored, Audiobahn subs and amp, kenwood headunit, and strobing tailights. Most of the miles came on the highway because he had to drive for his ARMY workouts. Car is very good condition. He is leaving for Iraq and needs to get rid of it because he cannot store it. Should the price be lower or what? Is it a good deal. And how long, if he took good care of it will the car last? Another 8 years or more? I am also looking at a 1999 camaro for 4,500 dollars with 109,000 miles on it. Good deal?
A: I think the mustang is a little bit too expensive, they are not worth that much specially if they are already almost 10 years old, I would pay $4000 the most and likewise for the Camaro... good luck!
