Cobra Make, Engine: Classic 427, I purchased it May 2005, the kit was bought in 1991. I'm not sure when it was completed! Installed GMPP Connect & Cruise 376/525 with T-56 S/M 3.55 gears about 2 years ago! 1/4 miles is with old setup!

Default 1991 weight?

Just put my 1991 on the scales! It's got the LS3 525 GMPP package with the T56 S/M, Factory 5 wheels. Full tank of gas and bottle of NOS. Without my fat butt of course! It didn't have the hood on! Guesses?\

I was surprised!

Ok Al, I'll give it a guess, but then I have a 1992, with a 427 S/O (Alum. heads) TKO-600, 1/2tank of fuel. so I may have a pretty good idea, (2460lbs). That's what my car scaled out at. Cheers TommRot.

This was at a truck stop today! I was expecting 24XX as well! It has an 8.8 rear, coil-overs all around!

I bet it was knocking 3,000 when I bought it! SBC Chevy Iron heads and block, 700R-4, Mustang suspension with steel wheels?

The weight of a complete LS376/525 is only 384# That's intake to oil pan and with exhaust manifolds! Just the T-56 Super Magnum is 167# and dang has the price went up, just the transmission is $4947.00!
