Brand new owner. P/U my Cobra day before Thanksgiving. Traded in a modded 03 Mach1 (Full Bassani, 4:10's, Nittos, wheels, etc. etc) Next step was the procharger. Got skidish on the warranty and decided to use the money on the Cobra. MACH was good, Cobra is by far a better machine. No problems so far. Got a question about the transmission. 1-5 are fine - smooth. When I go to 6th on the hwy - 70+, it sounds like I am in 4th at 10 mph. Performance seems OK, just sounds bad. Problem or normal? First 6 speed.

If you are "lugging" then I'd say that was pretty much normal. I cannot remember the final drive ratio on the 6th gear but you would probably feel like it was free wheeling... :rotf:

If you have any doubt at all though, take it to the dealer for warranty repair.:thumbsup:

I wouldn't worry about it now. It's a brand new transmission and will likely make some noise the first few hundred miles.

The sixth gear is pretty easy at 70-ish MPH. I'd only use it then for saving gas. Otherwise, save sixth for 90+ MPH.

When I first got my 03 cobra it made noise in sixth, I took it in and there was a problem with the syncroniser. they fixed it and it has been better ever since. Have fun with it I know I have with mine
