You won't drag them off unless you lower the car more than 1.5 inches. I agree that the '03 is too quiet! I put on a full 3" exhaust on my '03 and have yet to scrape it on anything.

Lisa,
I have tried 2 different cat backs on my cobra, and I'll tell ya what my findings were. First I tried the Bassani 2.5 in cat back. It was louder than the stock one, it sounded alright, but very common. I did not care much for the fit/finish either. I then went to the MAC 3 in cat back and wow!!! what a difference. Very noticible power gains over both stock and bassani, sounds mean and distinctive!! I can no longer put it to the floor in first thru third till I'm at least 1/2 throttle or the tires just break free. I did not do a dyno before/after, but I will be doing it this summer. I'll be doing the changing right there at the shop to make sure it is a fair analysis of the two. and that is on an 01.... If it were me, and I had an 03... I'd just go strait for the 3" cat back, then a 3" pro chamber H pipe and watch out!:eek: :thumbsup:

Lisa, the MAC states that it is 50 state legal for emmissions. If you remember how loud Thomas and Mike Morans car was at RA last year... well this is almost as loud, with a deeper tone. :D Their car is what made me really look for something different sounding from the rest, still legal, and that lets everyone know to look out, a snake is on it's way!:cool:

yeah, thats more what i am thinking; distinctive sound. not the 'no-master' sound that john is refering to. although that is very distinctive...;)

IF YOU WANT LOUD....
get the bassani x pipe with removable cats.
remove the cats for an off-road pipe
get the bassani catback.


if you want loud, you will not be dissapointed.

To see what the chevy people are saying about thsi setup... go to the www.LS1.com website... then click on the Ford et all forum

Then click on the thread that says "I just witnessd an 03 Cobra Dyno...."

The chevy guy who posted was there to see my car dynoed. He couldn't believe the #s it produced and how LOUD the exhaust was. Pretty cool when you can impress even the arrogant chevy lovers. lol

:thumbsup:

I have Bassani x pipe with cats and Bassani cat back. It is loud, you can drive at Young Ford Cruise-in next weekend if you want to see for yourself. I love the sound, however at highway speed with the windows up, inside the car it is a bit much for long distance highway driving. Ask my Dad who road in the back seat to Drag Day!
I will probably put the stock cat-back on when we go to Ford 100 in June.

Now....with the windows down at about 6000 rpm it sounds bad a$$, especially in a tunnel. :D
