Gti vs 5.0

Went on a cruise with my friend and his 5.0 stang A/T. I'm stage 1 with a Carbonio intake and he's 100% stock. We raced from 45 and it was pretty even until 80-90 at which point he comfortably pulled away. I will race again and video tape. I was pleased I could hang until 80-90 mph. Many will call bs I'm sure but ill post vids soon enough. He's getting a bama tune soon, I'll need to go stage 2 just to keep up I'm sure.

Yeah it's a slush box. They have 3.15s so they pull hard at higher speeds

I think you will need more then stage 2 to keep up. At fully bolted stage 2 I could comfortably walk the 4.6GT's but 5 dots are a different animal.

The 4.6s were dogs imo. Yes, these 5 liters are fast, but I believe they often get too much credit. They excel doing burnouts and 100+ acceleration. Honestly who regularly goes down a highway at those speeds? They suck the gas and drive like a fat american sedans. I'll run again as stage 2. It'll be closer thank you think until about 100-11, when the gti falls on it's face.bttn Not my cup of tea these 5.0s

0-60 in 4.2 seconds and I ran a 12.77@111 stock on all season tires. Pretty good for 0-100 acceleration too, it was sub 10 seconds.

I get 26-27mpg on the highway, and about 20mpg around town. That's with mods and big wheels and tires plus 3.73s out back.

Stage 2 won't even be close to a stock 5.0. If your friend knows how to drive that is. A monkey driving a Veyron is still a monkey, so driver always play a big part.

Comparing a veyron to a 5.0.....priceless. All I'm saying is that if you compare 40-80 runs in a low gear a stage 2 WILL hang with a 5.0. Obviously a muscle car with rwd and 400hp will beat a gti in a line, but all I said was that the gti can stay competitive. Not once did I say it will take a 5.0. Ik you're defending your car man, we all do. You 5.0 drivers are so quick to defend anything beating your cars in a street race. Will you credit my stage 3 dinan 335is for walking all over a precious bama "race" tuned 5.0? Last, of the two 5.0 drivers I know, neither get "27" mpg on the highway and most certainly not 20 city.

Yea those numbers must be driving it like an absolute puss. The guys I know get like 14 with any kind of city/spirited driving and a tad over 20 on the highway with a little screwing around.

I LOVE the 5.0's though. I'd buy one if it didn't handle like shit and weigh 2 tons. I grew up on foxbodys, but until they handle well I would never go back to a mustang for a DD. We will have to see how the 15's work with IRS.

Great accelerating cars and driving one does make you feel like a badass, but as an everyday car with Chicago winters....again not my cup of tea.

I've seen this video multiple times. IMHO the gti was heatsoaked and possibly needed a driver mod. Plus that 5.0 is far from stock.

Gti vs 5.0

Plus that mustang jumped. Although credit where it's due, 5.0s are fast cars.
