Warranty will cover the expense of head replacement as long as the car didn't have modifications performed on it. if it did, then you may be on your own. :doubt:

Paratrooper82d, had his replaced under warranty and he had a pulley and some other mods. Just depends on your dealer.

I had the drivers side head replaced, car was still under warranty at the time. It was making a loud ticking sound. New head is fine. I did not have any mods to the motor, except for cold air and catback, so I did not have any problems getting the head replaced.

A lot of times, it does depend on the dealer you are dealing with, so hopefully you can find a good one!

There was a Tech Service Bulletin or Recall for a short run of 03 Cobras built in the Fall of 2002. It was a defect in the driver's side head. I don't know if you have the same issue, but there was a problem and a subsequent fix.
