My guess is underrated. Not because the terminator Cobras were, but because the powertrain is so similar to the big money GT, Ford will want a nice dividing line in the sand between these two cars.

My best guess anyway.

I voted "plenty more power" but there should have been an option for "slightly" more power. I think it'll be about 10-15hp up from advertised numbers. Also, because of the drivetrain, I think it will be similar to the existing cobra in that it will respond very well to modifications. Also, I think it will respond better then the Ford GT, since its an iron block, as opposed to an aluminum block.

what was that, someone on here claimed like 638 rwhp with a cai, you gotta be shi^^en' me...well the Ford GT actually made around 600 stock, and if it was underrated, maybe this one will be too....

...that would be the stuff!..........I'll pay for mine, when it's time.

ya know when you think about it, those mods and a bit of dyno time really aren't that costly for what you are getting...that would be a beast.

Am I in trouble now for bringing up an old thread?

I'll put it this way. I've had my car for going on 5 month now and miraculously haven't gotten a ticket yet. The car has more than enough power for a semi-stock street car. I can't imagine what the newest model are like. I'm a little surprised the NTSB hasn't put some sort of horsepower limitations for street cars.

We much prefer members start a new thread vs. reviving an old thread. Some won't catch the old date and they'll start quoting and replying to people that have long-ago sold their car and moved on.
