06 Mustang M5 vs. 00 T/A M6

This is a discussion on 06 Mustang M5 vs. 00 T/A M6 within the Kill Stories forums, part of the Racing Forums category; I have to explain this story because it makes me laugh every time I watch this video. About a year ...

    06 Mustang M5 vs. 00 T/A M6

    I have to explain this story because it makes me laugh every time I watch this video. About a year ago my buddy drove my car, not real hard but enough to see what it had. He was looking at buying a car to toy with and wanted to get an idea of what it felt like. This year he bought a 2006 Mustang. He lives in Michigan and comes down to FL every year so we have been talking about racing each other for a while. He had been here 2 days and we hadn't had a chance to run them yet but the whole time he was here my son wanted to ride with him to were ever we went and kept saying the Mustang was going to whip my car because the Stang was newer and "Mustangs are fast Dad". I new the whole time my car would win because I drove his, but I shut up and took it for two days. I have shorty headers, full exhaust, and a lid. He has exhaust, minor suspension mods, and some sticky ass Nitto's. By the time we got home my son would not stop saying how bad Mustang's suck. By the time we race again I'll have heads, long tubes, intake, and rockers. I may have to race him in reverse.

    I never said the quote in question; the new 2011 may be slightly better than an 2005 STi out of the box but not much has changed. Whereas the 2006 vs 2011 mustang GT is a HUGE difference. Subaru does need to step their game up absolutely. Either way 2005 is one of the if not the most favored year of STi by enthusiasts but it doesn't really matter to me if you guys disagree or don't like my car. You wouldn't believe how many 2011 mustang GT leg humpers there are on my home forum.

    not knocking the sti. just asking why you own the older car because you were downing the older cars. everyone has their preferences clearly. its just how i read your statement i guess. im just a fan of the newer doesnt = hands down better.

    I meant about ANY models. The kid thought the 06 Mustang was faster simply because it was newer than dad's TAs... Yep I know the 2011 Mustangs are much better than the previous model. And stock for stock, yeah the GT is rated faster than the 4th-gens.

    Hell, I'm considering getting a 2011 V6 to be my DD...

    Hell for a dd the v6 mustang is great I'd like one they drive great and have decent power. It' sad to say but I rather have a 11v6 mustang rather than a GT from 96 to 05. Now a 03/04 cobra is a nice car.

    Yeah it's rude that just 10 years later the baseline v6 Mustang has similar performance stats as my top-end Mustang from 01

    GM better get off their asses and reintroduce a kick ass Firebird. And none of the damn retro look. Give us something new and kick ass dammit!

    Trust me, no matter what year STi it is people are always flaming saying the Evo is better/faster and so on...

    In the end you pick your favorite platform and go from there

    Oh yeah I know that's not true, I love to rawness of the older cars. I feel like some of the newer cars feel too refined for their intentions.

    Why thank you, personally I don't think the other MY's are very attractive besides 04/05. They grow on you but you know they're still pretty ugly. But the 05's get bigger wheels (7.5'' -> 8"), nicer interior, standard stereo .

    Don't get me wrong guys, I know the LSx platform is incredible and will easily make more power than my car for a lot less money. But I'm happy working with 2.5 liters for now
