    Which would be faster? A 306 with aluminum heads cam intake or a stock 95 cobra with a single turbo?

    Um, I'd put my money on the Cobra. Hands down.

    Turbo car will blow you away everytime if he knows how to powershift .... A stock cobra with a turbo kit can make 400rwhp with ease to your 300

    To many factors. Both drivers = I would say the Cobra if he is running 8psi or so.

    From a dig to lets say 120 the Cobra might struggle with traction.

    Also consider the weight of both cars.

    the turbo Cobra should be faster no matter what. Like Mustard said you're probably looking at least 100whp difference plus a ton more torque from the turbo car.

    Def the cobra with the turbo.. 306 off the line but that boost is gonna make that thing pull really hard on the top end. Musturds banned?

    This^^^ with ease is the key too. That thing could surpass 400rwhp with little effort

    The turbo car but nothing to do with it being a cobra.
