Ask Gretchen.

Forced Induction for sure and a little noz probably wouldn't hurt. You're going to need all you can get and them some and hope they are indeed stock.

Should be a lot of fun trying.

If you have an LFX than twin turbo.

You can't what? Beat a 5.0 Mustang, with the right kind of money You can.
I would Give an Mustang a hell of a Run with my Fiat Spyder. ABARTH Parts in A 2.0L, Red light to Red light I was hard to beat.

The only thing that beats cubic inches is Cubic MONEY

You can beat a 5.0...but you have an LLT which makes it harder to do. It won't be easy. (mostly because of a lack of tuning options) The 2012 and up models have an LFX engine...pretty close to the LLT but with some updates and better tuning options and thus more options for power. A twin turbo on the LFX could woop a 5.0 for sure.

But you have an LLT. Because of that you only have two options.

1) Nitrous. There are a couple LLTs that have gone well into the 12s and even one that has gone into the high 11s at the quarter mile with a what I think was a 100 - 120 shot, a couple minor bolt ons (intake/exhaust) and Drag Radials on the rear, skinnies on the front. You'd have an great chance on wooping up on a stock 5.0 with that setup.

2) IPF supercharger. This is the only real option for forced induction on the LLT. You'll get somewhere between 425 to 475 crank horsepower depending on your other mods with this kit. It screams up top and you'd likely be able to run with or pull away from a stock 5.0 from a roll. The problem is that it doesn't make a lot of power in the lower part of the rpms, so if you went from a dig the 5.0 would still likely get you. Of course, again if you had sticky tires and such that makes a big difference. We've seen a V6 run as low as a 12.8 with just this kit installed an not much else but you should expect mid to low 13 second for an average run with this kit.

So there you have it. Thats your options.....or just get a V8 but even then thats no guarantee you'll beat the 5.0. You'll need mods to guarantee it...if well if the 5.0 is not stock then all bets go out the window.

If the 5.0 isn't stock or close to stock, two words for you... good luck.

If it is stock, it's still going to be hard to do mostly because you have a manual. Manual and big power tend to break things so chances are you'd have to either replace axles or hope they don't break if you spray from the line. If you go SC, you'll have to drive the hell out of your car if you want to win from a dig. The SC doesn't make a lot of low end torque so he'll get you out of the hole. At that point, your just praying that you have enough top end to beat him.

Agree. The manual doesn't seem to want to hold up to nitrous or forced induction for long before you have to replace it. Yes...he would have to drive like a pro to pull off the win...unless of course the other guy can't drive at all either.

And hope he was never on a track

Thanks I will go talk to the local Car shops like "RMCR" and ask about tuning since that seems to be a real issue. Based on what he says I will know which route to go. 1 more question was that NAS wet or dry shot. huge difference in set up.

sycraft 11-18-2013 10:12 AM

beating a 5.0 can be done, I have done it. But it really comes down to the driver. I have the IPF and can do it, but I am heavily modded as well. Hell, I've even beat a ZL1. but driver error was in play, but a win is a win....

RubyCamaro 11-21-2013 08:55 PM

I heard that! Congrats on the wins! I beat me a ZL1 too but it was bracket racing & he was dumb & broke out. Still.................a win is a win! I have had fun beating a few GT Mustangs along the way too - heads up racing!

Good luck OP.
