Threads like this are useless without knowing more details of the mustang's mods.

to much unknown. I would like to believe if he went through the trouble of all that engine work he would have worked on the suspension also, but who knows.

never heard of a 341 Stroker... 331 or 347 maybe. Definitely need more info on engine. He will deginitely have a considerable weight advantage on you. They are much lighter than the 2005-2013.

If you are indeed in an LT1 you are truly screwed lol. But if you meant an LS3 that's I'm the 2012 SS that you say you drive, then you will be a bit better off. But not much.

This is silly, that 347 could have 500+ hp or 300! Now what about a T Rex vs a Spineasaurus?

The cobra is about 200lbs lighter than your camaro. What kinda power is your 383 putting down? And what kinda suspension work do you have? The mustang can turn very good numbers on stock suspension whereas the LT1 has crap suspension stock.

Are you referring to the OP's older Camaro or is new LS3?

The 96-98 Cobra is about 3400lbs curb weight, so that is approx. 500lbs lighter than a 2010+ Camaro, with somewhat similar power depending on the type of stroker kit he has.

I was talking about his LT1 stroker car, which I believe is a 93-97 body style...

Not all stroker motors are equal. That 331 or 347 could be a cheapo stroker build or a 500hp one.
