Again, He said STOCK! and NEW!

Now that is a steal for that Z06. I am a Ford guy so I would still buy a Cobra over it, but that is ALOT of car for the money.

I would buy the Cobra, just because of how cheap it is to get HP out of the 03-04 blown models. Switch out the blower pully and belt, remap the FI and I have seen 425 out of them at the wheels. Horsepower TV on SpikeTV did just that.

But as for the fastest NEW, STOCK, around $35k I would say Either the Evo or STI, just because technically the Cobra isn't new. It's an '04 model.

Now I am waiting to see what SVT has planned for the NEW cobra. I heard they were playing with V-10s. Actually I read an article where SVT dropped a 351ci V-10 (a 4.6 with 2 more cylinders added) into an '04 GT chassis (with solid rear axel). The magazine tested it at a dragstrip and were getting low 11's on street tires and mid 10's on slicks. No one knew how much power it had (I am sure SVT did, but they weren't telling) but all they could do was state the obvious, it was FAST.
What are you having trouble with? I'll teach it some respect.
