The Ford SVT Mustang Cobra, also known as SVT Mustang Cobra, SVT
Cobra, or simply as Cobra, is a muscle car/pony car model that was
built in model years 1993 through 2004 by Ford Motor Company's
Special Vehicle Team division or SVT for short.
The SVT Cobra was a high-performance version of the Ford Mustang,
considered as top-of-the-line as it was positioned above the
Mustang GT and Mach 1 models during its era of production. On three
occasions, the race-ready, street-legal SVT Cobra R variant was
produced in limited numbers.
The 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra was launched during the 1992
Chicago Auto Show. It was the premier vehicle of Ford's newly
established SVT division, designed to showcase SVT's four hallmarks
of performance, substance, exclusivity, and value. The exterior of
the 1993 SVT Cobra was similar to that year's GT model with
differences explained below.
The upgrades were beneath the bodywork and featuring a 302CI V8
engine, producing 235HP at 4,600 rpm and 280 lb�ft of torque at
4,000 rpm. According to Road & Track, this could send a Cobra
through the 1/4 mile in 14.5 seconds at a trap speed of 98 mph.
Acceleration from zero to 60 mph took 5.9 seconds. The drivetrain
received an upgraded transmission, rear disc brakes, and for the
first time on a factory Mustang, 17-inch unidirectional wheels.
Cobra models received a softer, more compliant ride compared to the
GT model. This was accomplished with model-specific springs and
The 1993 SVT Cobra's short block (cylinder block, crankshaft, rods,
and pistons) was carried over from the GT model. To this, Ford SVT
engineers added the following performance items:
- Cylinder Heads - GT-40 "High Flow" Cast Iron heads were
installed. They were milled for 62.5 cc combustion chambers. Valves
measure 1.84" intake, and 1.54" exhaust. The valves are actuated by
Cobra-specific 1.7 ratio roller rockers, constructed of aluminum
and produced for Ford by Crane Cams. - Intake Manifold - The Cobra
upper manifold was unique to the 1993 Cobra and had a 2.75"
diameter round throttle body opening, diverting air into 8 round
staggered ports, each 1.64" diameter. The lower manifold was
identical to the GT-40 manifold used by Ford Racing; it redirects
airflow to a rectangular port configuration as needed by the
cylinder heads. - Camshaft - The cam is of the hydraulic roller
type. However, the Cobra cam has unique specifications of
0.479"/0.479" intake/exhaust lift, (209�/209�) duration at 0.050"
and a lobe separation of 118.3� - Air/Fuel Delivery - The increased
airflow and fuel consumption of the Cobra required these upgraded
components: Larger 24 lb/hr fuel injectors, 2.75" MAF meter, 2.56"
throttle body, and matching EGR plate handle the increased
breathing of the motor. A specially calibrated X3Z EEC-IV engine
control unit runs the system. - Accessories - The crankshaft pulley
diameter decreased by 14% as compared to the GT in order to
under-drive the alternator, A/C, and smog pump, all to increase
power. The water pump pulley also decreased in diameter by the same
amount in order to preserve the ratio of pump speed, and thus
coolant flow. These smaller accessory pulleys necessitated a
shorter serpentine belt. - Exhaust - To extract the maximum amount
of power from the Cobra's powerplant, Ford engineers used tuned
mufflers with lower restriction. While the factory headers and
H-pipe remained the same, the tailpipes were similar to that of a
Mustang LX 5.0L model in that they had straight stainless steel
tips. This is because the Cobra had a revised rear fascia, allowing
for an exposed dual exhaust. With the increased engine output of
the new Mustang SVT Cobra, the Borg-Warner World Class T-5
transmission needed an internal upgrade, which allowed it to yield
a higher torque capacity compared to the standard World Class T-5.
This upgrade consisted of custom gearing 1-3 which were reduced by
10% and hardened, 4th/5th was the same as standard T-5s found in
the LX/GTs. The holding capacity of the Cobra's clutch was
increased by way of a higher clamping force pressure plate using
the same 10-inch diameter as the GT/LX.
The Cobra outsourced production of shocks and struts to the
aftermarket manufacturer Tokico. The components used were
specifically valved for the new car.
