    I have a D1SC procharger going in this spring. Whats your excuse?
    Lol, whats your excuse? How about im paying down on my house instead of buying a S/C? How about paying for a year of college. There are tons of REASONS not to buy a supercharger and only 1 to buy one.

    Sorry, I was a bit off on weight, but those are just estimations. it was officially announced that the block itself weights only 10lbs more than the 4.6 that's leaving. The car will have a weight increase, but not so much to make an ls1 even with it. Face it guys, ford finally manufactured a mustang(non-cobra) that will kill the ls1(stock for stock), albeit the ls1 is approximately 12 years older than it.

    Depends on what you do, in this economy there are soo many people out of work becasue soo many people can do the same job, waiting line upon waiting line. You go to school get a job that requires you to do so and your job security is much much greater. I didnt go to college but i have friends who did and make me wish i did. 23 year olds making 80-100k a year.

    the new stang should take even a good ls1--- and if it does it'll probably take the new camaro too. but rwhp numbers remain to be seen yet, and at approx 3700 pounds who knows how it'll run? probably have a mag time of 13 flat is my guess

    i cant wait to run one

    Exactly dude!!

    I'm just saying that these cars can hold their own after 11 years. Theres only a pant load of potential on top of that if you can afford it.

    14 years of difference compared to 1-5 years of difference? 2002 trans am is almost the exact same car as a 1998.

    And the last comment was a gt500 reference. They are the stang with good power but cant hook for shit.
    Yeah, the GT500 reviews made me cringe, esp the one video i saw that showed it wheel hopping like a mother. And I wouldnt assume the GT would be any better.

    I was just saying older technology vs newer technology. 95 viper is still a 450 hp beast, but its not quite as refined as the ZR1

    If I were a betting man...I would probably put my money on the newer of the two...at least in this situation.

    Both cars are new?? LS1 car likely wins.

    quoted from Waldo:
    T/A's beat everything on the road, we all know that. why are these questions even asked? I don't get it. perhaps a better question would be what if a T/A raced the space shuttle to earths outer most atmosphere which would win?

    A: the T/A, cuz they are the fastest thing in the galaxy

    Nuff Said...

    Yea, an LS1 will usually take an s197(05+ mustangs)

    Although, this will change with the 2011 mustang... were gonna be on the chasing end when those come out

    Also, I would consider the cobra a mustang, but I'm sure a lot of people will argue on this.

    A cobra is a mustang, anyone who would argue that is a fool. A cobra was a mustang offered by ford. Its a mustang cobra thats it, end of story. No if ands or buts

    Ford owns SVT, SVT is the performance division, a SVT focus is still a focus, a SVT raptor is still badged ford f-150 SVT raptor

    I know it does..

    What I meant to say by "Cobras are stock mustangs" is that a cobra is a mustang
















    I wanted a terminator when looking for my ls1 but they were out of my price range...
