The 2003-2004 SVT Cobra was and will always be one of the best Mustangs ever created. The SVT team decided to take the pony car from a run-of-the-mill performance car to something all performance cars would fear on the track and street. They decided to take the existing 4.6L DOHC 4V engine and boost the horsepower with the help of an Eaton supercharger. This combination produced what I believe to be an under-rated 390 horsepower.

Thanks to an abundant amount of 03-04 Cobra performance parts, owners of these SVT Mustangs found it very easy to make 450-500 HP on the stock Eaton superchargers. With supercharger upgrades, making 600 HP not out of the question on the forged factory short blocks that came on these Cobras. Check out LatemodelRestoration.com employee Tony’s 2004 SVT Cobra on the dyno making an impressive 600 HP thanks to Ford Racing's, Whipple Supercharger Kit.

2003-2004 Cobra Specs:

  • 4.6L DOHC Supercharged V8
  • HP: 390 hp @ 6,000 RPM
  • TQ: 390 lb-ft @ 3,500 RPM
  • 0-60: 4.5 Seconds
  • ¼ Mile: 12.9 seconds
Production Numbers:
  • Coupe: 8,395
  • Convertible: 5,082

The engine wasn’t the only thing upgraded on the 03-04 Cobras. The driveline got a serious upgrade with the factory 6 speed Tremec T56 transmission. Unlike the Mustang GT, V6 and Mach 1 of the same years, the Terminator Cobras featured an Independent Rear Suspension (IRS). This helped these SVT Cobras not only be quick in the straight line but also helped them hug corners just as well.

Exterior improvements included unique styling mods that such as a front bumper that incorporated a larger opening for increased air flow and cooling on the radiator and heat exchanger. It also featured a unique heat extractor hood, smooth side skirts, color matched folding mirrors, spoiler and rear bumper.

After laying down 592 rwhp, and 550 ft lb of torque, take a look at the list of mods that our employee Tony has done to his 2004 Cobra.

This car is supporting a Whipple 2.3 17lbs of boost ( 3" pulley ), full Bassani exhaust without cats, Accufab throttle body, K&N cold air kit, 60lb Injectors, Ford GT pumps with Fore fuel hat and to help put all that power to the ground, Tony just installed Chrome SVE Series 2 wheels.

Tony decided that power wasn't everything. He had to find a way to make the car handle like it was on rails. Tony started off with a set of, H&R sport springs. After that, Maximum Motorsports caster camber plates, Maximum Motorsports subframe connectors, shorter sway bar end links, IRS subframe brackets and an FRPP differential cover.
