I do have to agree with the toying with you comment, when my ZX3 was pretty much stock only a few bolt ons, my friend had a stock 2000 GT and he was able to smoke me by far worse than that, his car ran 14.0 sec 1/4mile, and against a mid to low 16 second car, that would almost be bus lengths

Yeah they are real shitty cars!! Id like to hear your reasoning on this one... Should be interesting! Also your 16 second car got close to a low 14 second car around 3rd gear? If so, he was toying if it really was a V8. Oh and btw, like said above its a 4.6! And another thing, I raced a Focus ZX3 with header, full exhaust and intake (maybe some other mods) at the track once in my stock 5.0 and beat it by over 2 seconds, 14.0 to a 16.2... And you should know that is a lot more then 3 car lengths.

I raced a 5.0 the other day. I dont know if it was a GT. I just seen the 5.0 badge on the fender. It weas from about a 5 mph roll, we both left the stoplight slowly then he got on it so I was like what the hell, why not. I stomped it, he had me through first, when I got to second I started pulling ahead, by the time we hit 80-85 I had him by about a car length. The mustang was black and it was a dude and his Girlfriend, might of been around a '90-'93.

really? thats strange....but the fact that this guys SE is within car lenghts on a GT mustang is just stupid...I have a 2002 ZTS i have an intake and thats it but for me to be at 100-110 i am not going into 4th gear by no means...i too raise the BS flag either that or the kid felt that his racing at 50 mph felt like 100+ ah well....better luck next time against a smaller engine kid

Before i put turbo in my ZX3... i race my friends 97 mustang GT and he pull me in 3rd gear. 1st and 2nd i was right next to him, don't remember the rpm but i would said almost when shifting to 3rd gear that's when he just started to pull away. we started around 5mph and then roll from there. After we race and got home i ask him if he actually step on the car, because i couldn't believe that my car stay right next to him in the first 2 gears..

and as far shifting to 4th @ 100-110 ,, that's BS... now if he would it said i was in 4th gear that's a diffrent story... but then the govenor will take over AT 107 i think...


well, my friend with the mustang don't want to race me, now that i have turbo ,, he wants to wait until he puts the pi head....

just my .02

Car and Driver ran a 15.1 1/4 with a 97 gt, standard trans& 6.6 0-60

those mid 90s gt's were definitely not the fastest but theyre still well out of reach for most foci
as demon4545 stated "but any V8 stang, even the non-PI headed pre-99 one should be dusting your car"

I have an SVT Focus with all the bolt ons and it runs REAL strong, I also have a 2000 GT with a couple of bolt ons. The only way an SE with bolt ons could keep up with a GT is to shoot it out of a big ass cannon. My GT is an automatic and gets rubber when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd somewhere between 75 and 80mph. Trust me, the guy was F'n with you.

Think, with ALL your bolt ons you may have 120 whp and about the same torque, the 4.6 GT averages around 220whp and 257wtq, thats taking into consideration of 15% loss due to the drivetrain.

I too have to throw the BS flag..
