quick5pnt0 I have never ordered from them, so i cant comment on that. Like i said before we had a deal of some sort that i wont get into that they didnt keep their end of. It wasnt some huge deal or anything, its just one of those things. I dont know what their customer service is like for customers, but all i know is they didnt treat me so great.
BTW, as far as i know they are a paid sponsor of fnsweets. So they may have great prices (i dont know, i havent been there in quite some time), but there is no wonder why they are greatly praised over there.

Thanx for the info.

I remember asking you a while back if you thought Roushs were bad and you said you were referring to a situation that had happened. Well, I see you have Stage3motorsports is untrustworthy in your profile and I didn't know anything about who it was when I asked about it before. I was on fnsweet and they have a banner on there with the website for Stage3... The members have a lot of posts saying to purchase Roush products from him and that he's great to deal with. Not to be in your business, but is there anything I should know about this website when considering ordering products? Thanx in advance.

quick5pnt0 Yes
99 and 01 had the same engine, a 320 horsepower aluminum block DOHC.
There was no '00 or '02.....

And '03-'04 are the same, a 390 horsepower cast iron block supercharged DOHC

EDIT: BTW, there is a section on the main page of this site with specs on all years of the SVT Cobra.

Don't the 03-04 Cobras have the same engine?

quick5pnt0 HA, you got me, all i thought of when i typed that was "the year before the '03 came out"....LOL
The '03 Cobra engine rocks, i've read of guys putting BIG HP through those things without a problem.

But then again neither were the 5.0L fox body mustangs. You can do it but you have to be careful, and you cant really expect it to handle the same power as the Cobra.

As for the engines..... I don't know the exact specs off the top of my head, but the '03 Cobra has many more things done to it internally that makes it able to withstand the power of its supercharger. Ford assumed that people would modify it so they went to great lengths to make sure that motor could handle the extra power.
Although the Mach 1's engine isnt the same as the '03 Cobra engine it is almost (if no 100%) exactly the same as the previous model's Cobra engine. As far as i know the Mach 1's enigne is the '02 Cobra engine.
'02 Cobra engine? must be a Mach 1 blocks are aluminum blocks, with aluminum heads, while the 03 Cobra has a cast iron block with aluminum heads, but with Manley rods, and other beefier specs. 99-01 Cobra engines are crap! lol.
