New Mustangs

This is a discussion on New Mustangs within the Kill Stories forums, part of the Racing Forums category; I keep reading magazine articles about the new Mustangs that show quicker 0-60 times than I'd expect from a car ...

    New Mustangs

    I keep reading magazine articles about the new Mustangs that show quicker
    0-60 times than I'd expect from a car so heavy. I have an 02 M6 SS w/a few mods (4.11's, catback, lid, tune) and while I don't street race very often I'd expect to smoke any new GT or Shelby. Has anybody run a newer Mustang and how close was it?? My car should have picked up @ 25hp/ft/lbs over stock at the flywheel which should be enough to whip a new GT.

    With those mods a stock GT shouldnt be a problem for you. Now the Shelby Cobra will own you pretty badly. The Shelby GT on the other hand might put up more of a fight but the gears you have should have you pulling ahead with zero problems.

    Yes I think he means the Shelby GT 500 but I can see some being confused about the name since there is a Cobra emblem on the grill and sides of the car. The Shelby GT is 325 HP Shelby package on the Mustang GT not sure what is all added but I believe the price when way up lol.

    I had the same questions when I pulled beside a Mustang yesterday that was decked out with Shelby decals, different rims, different taillights, different ground effects package, etc. I got a chance to play around with him in 3rd and 4th gear on the highway and pulled on him about a car length without having too much trouble. I instantly realized by his performance and the fact that there was nothing even remotely impressive about the exhaust tone that it wasn't the Shelby GT500....if it was, the race would've yielded a much different result!

    All N/A 4.6 M5 Mustangs come with a very short 1st gear (~3.35). Compare that to an F-body M6 1st gear (2.66), and you start to see why they can be quite quick off the line, and still do ok in 2nd (1.99 vs 1.78). It is when both the 4.6 & the LS1 get into third and their gear ratios are essentially even that the superior power of the LS1 really begins to shine.

    IMHO, this is also why LS1 folks often comment on how well their cars pull in 3rd....to wit....compared to their main rival, the Mustang, they certainly do.

    you really talk a lot of crap for being on an ls1 site with an suv and are you not able to see all of the numbers and runs that have been made between the gt500 and the c6, the c6 is .2 faster in 60 time, the gt5 is around .3 faster in quarter, but 0 to 150 the vettes owning it by 3.5 seconds and just goes from there to out perform in almost everything else. and that's not the top of the line vette either. the stangs also boostin' just to get there and has like 95 more horse and still isn't doin' the things c6's can do. there is a few thousand dollars difference though in favor of the stang, you should check the numbers out again, you'll see the vette is just superior.

    Ha ha, I never said any different. And pull your head outta your ass for a second to respect other cars regardless of the make, as your handle obviously shows you dont. While I'm a die hard chevy fan and totally agree w/ you that ford has to put a power adder on to keep up w/ chevy's N/A motor, its still a bad ass ride that commands respect. Also, I'm not sure where you got your numbers but I dont follow numbers. I watch the races and make judgements on that. Granted, both vehicles are bad ass, the Z06 most certainly takin the gold, but that was not the arguement. The arguement was a shitty comment being made about a bad ass car and chevy guys downing a bad ass ride just because its a mustang. Power adder or not, watching a bone stock one go 11.8 is nothing short of impressive!

    Now to your other jackass comment, so what if I got a SUV and I'm on a LS1 forum. Last I checked there were a lot of LS2 guys on here along with ricers and mustang guys. More so than any other forum I've ever been on so how are you gonna come at me like that? I do have a LSX motor Chief..... Or maybe you're just mad that my SUV could hang/take you on the street? Don't tell me I talk a lot of crap when bolt on LS1s are talkin about takin the GT500 because its heavy
