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 Fords newly established SVT division, designed to showcase SVTs four hallmarks of performance, substance, exclusivity, and value. The exterior of the 1993 SVT Cobra was similar to that years 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 sway bars. The 1993 SVT Cobras 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 Cobras 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 Cobras 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.
