My friend's sister came down yesterday and she has an 02 Mustang GT, and my buddy took me for a ride in it yesterday, and goddamn, those things have mad torque! When he threw it into 2nd, I got pushed back into my seat hard! And when lookin ahead, seein that scoop makes the ride seem krazier. I dunno, for a stock ride, its pretty bada$$.

When I was lookin for a car, I had the choice between the GAGT with the works, or a bone-stock Mustang GT with no add-ons at all, not even a spoiler or hood scoop. I think it was the payments per month (327 for the GAGT, 460-something for the GT) that made the final decision. If they were around the same monthly payments, I think I woulda taken the Mustang...

I've actually talked to people that could afford a nice GT, but chose the Pony instead. I cant see how some people would rather have a pony than a GT. Thats just IMO :p

(btw, I test-drove two mustangs before I got my trans am... they just didn't compare...)

I've actually been in an '02 WS6 and it was freakin awesome. Holy cow, I wanted one more than anything! Best experience I've ever had behind the wheel was in a Supercharged 97 30th Anniversary Camaro SS. Woah, good times. I just wanted to post this thread to comment about how the Mustang GT had a good punch because I really didnt think they did before I actually got in one. :)

There are two 99+ Mustang GTs without hood scoops and spoilers in my town, both owned by highschool kids. One is red, the other is white. :D

i sh*t you not. I've seen the engines of both of these GTs. One is owned by my friend's girlfriend, and one is some football player who has a couple mods. They are the 4.6 V8 Mustang GTs. The hoods dont have the bada$$ scoop. :D

Not the Mustang.... just the R6. :p (giving you crap)

Mustangs are nice. At least most of them have a V8 and are all RWD. :thumbs: Nothing like a V8!

Dont worry i hate the v6's, they are a waste of space and i unlike many other mustangs owners will admit that a mustang isnt the fastest nor the greatest car in the world, i bought a sportbike to go fast :D

I bought my 1990 Probe V6 5-speed and 1997 Nissan Quest to go fast..... lol

I need a fast something.. I miss speed. :(


BTW I don't hate the 99+ Mustang V6 (older ones are a differnt story)... really it is underestimated by most people, for the price it is fairly compedative to other "sporty" cars in it's price range for performance, 15.4-15.9 1/4 mile time isn't bad for about $14,000 new.

R6's arent **** anyways, you brag about that thing like its the best thing since sliced bread. Granted its a bike and its fast but not the best. Secondly your power to weight ratio is a little better than any car i would hope you could smoke a GTP considering you probably run a 13 on your bike or maybe 12. What an accomplishment :rolleyes:

Would you like your cookie now or later ?

No **** its not the best bike out there, but the R6 is the BEST race bike on the planet, even compared to the 1000cc sportbikes,
and my R6 will smoke ANYTHING you own
FYI a stock '02 R6 1/4 mile time is 11 seconds flat
since you dont know **** about sportbikes you wouldnt know that
now when you take the straight line out of the equation there arent many cars on this planet that can out handle or out accelerate the R6

Before you put your lil comments in do some research on sometyhing before you type

I'll take that cookie now and you can

i for one like the mustang GT's, just dont really like it when a kid takes a v6 model, puts dual exhaust on it, slaps GT badges on it, and u can easily tell from the exhaust its a v6...especially when they punch it and it sounds like firecrackers or somethin goin off, popping or somethin. sorry, just think its dumb when someone puts the GT badges on a regular v6 mustang. but i went to the ford dealership, just lookin around (had a 2001 ws6 up there for sale:D ) and saw a black mach 1 on the showroom floor. now THAT was a nice mustang!!

by the way just to let everyone know how potent the 03 cobras are... with mild bolt ons, ie; blower pulley,long tube headers, h pipe, magnaflow exhaust, throttle body, some comp tuning, and nitto drag radials in the rear weighing in at 3892 pounds (convertible) best ever et/mph was 10.92 at 123 mph in quarter according to muscle mustangs & fast fords 4/03 issue. that car was making just shy of 500hp to the rear wheels.... now you can go and remove the factory blower and add a twin screw supercharger and with those other mods done you will be looking at over 700 rwhp. potent and lethal!

A 3892 lb car with 500HP running a 10.92?? Please scan the article.

800HP Supras only run low 11's, and they are 400 lbs lighter.

i will do one better... the car is owned by the owner of JDM engineering in freehold N.J his name is Jim D'Amore. here is there website. http://www.teamjdm.com/id17.htm all they do is performance parts for factory supercharged cobras and lightnings. as for the weight that was including the driver

1993Grandamgt
11-04-2003, 09:45 PM
by the way, coiincidentally, his 2001 lightning has a best ever of 10.50@128 and that weighs 4680 pounds with driver....

I'm not saying you are lying...I just don't understand the physics.

A 400WHP RX7 probably runs the same as that Mustang and it is over 1000lbs. lighter.

1993Grandamgt
11-04-2003, 10:02 PM
well there are lots of variables. temp, humidity, traction, suspension, gearing, etc. for instance i dont know about the RX7 or the Supra TT but the cobra has independaent rear suspension which just helps it squat and go, as for traction it was using nitto drag radials in the rear, not sure of the gears, temp, or humidity though

11-07-2003, 12:38 PM
Slap a set of slicks on there and its easilly doing low 12's to high 11's depending on weather, driver, and track.

My friend has a blown '99 GT that runs
12.9s and has yet to get its dyno tune.

It felt decent in stock form, but now the
thing runs like a scalded dog. Haha. :)

My neighbor's '03 Cobra was running in
the mid-12s with simply an exhaust mod.

That's the thing about Mustangs...they are so easily modified. At the strip the other day, I was easily beating stock GT's, but then I lined up against a Mach 1 and had my ass handed to me...and there was a SuperCharged Gobra running 12's...that thing was sweet. Anyway, I like the Mustangs, until you get to the interior. My wife actually wanted to buy one instead of our 02 GAGT, but then we went for a test drive and the interior was soooooo small and cheap looking/feeling. She hated it.

Yes stangs are easily modified. My stang stock would lose to most GAGT's on this site, but with the mods that ive got there isnt a stock '03 cobra that could touch it :D
