Modded Cobra

A good friend of mine has a 93 HCI Cobra and i was dying to test my new set up so we met for dinner and then headed to his house. gave it a little gas on the side road and the we u-turned on to the access road. once we got on to the access road we both hit it from about 20mph. i pulled him about half a truck length until about 85-90 then he started to come back but at that point we're both screaming down the access road so we let off. we got to his house and he was absolutley flabergasted that a 7000lb lifted truck was able to pull his modded cobra. and needless to say i was pretty thrilled myself.

Well, it's kinda funny that many people just don't think of trucks being fast. (because they're normally used for work etc.) But with that being said, there's no substitute for cubic inches, and no matter what engine the guy has in his car, you've got roughly over 100 more cubic inches than he does.

Nice kill.

Not sure where you get this from? I believe our 6.0 is a 361 cubic inch engine that was up against a 5.0 with 302ci. It's not the cubic inches that's doing it, it's the compressor boosting the engine. This is why you see 2.0 liters capable of making 600hp on pump gas.

Unless of course it was the first year with the 4.6? Which, if so... my bad.
