Are you high? Stock 5.0's ran low 14's and high 13's right off the showroom floor (mine did). 4.6 cars got killed by 5.0 cars until the 260 hp 4.6 came out in '99. Now they are pretty even. Automatic 5.0's might have 15's stock, but not a stick.

I rented an '04 v6 mustang right before I got this ZX5 PZEV. I have no doubt in my mind that the ZX5 could beat the crap out the mustang. Renting that mustang made me realize how much hp is wasted in automatics.

Oh yeah, the v-6 is no star, but to show people will mod. anything, MM&FF had a spread on modified v-6 stangs, and some of these guys are spending the bucks( can you say stroker crank!), all just to run like a v-8, I just didn't get it, modding my little 4 cyl. focus makes sense, but a v-6 stang??, I just don't get it....sorry, off topic,. sort-of!

I think it's funny that a thread about a focus beating a gt always gets the same kind of reaction every time. LOL. I know if I beat a GT I wouldn't even post it because some of the people get down right mean. I doubt I could ever take a GT, and it's real hard to think any focus less turbo can beat a gt. But there are differnt things that have been allready said like it was a V6, or they guy couldn't drive. But even if it was a V6, it's still a damn nice kill for a focus.

a mustang gt will smoke any zx3 anytime of the day unless it has some serious work done to it.....sorry to say it but its the truth.....and yes i hate mustang GT's but just use some common sense

a v-6 mustang will also beat a zx3 unless you have a preatty hefty ammount of mods on your car.....
