2013 LT RS package vs 2005 crown vic police interceptor

So I'm having an argument with this guy at work, he is saying my 2013 Camaro will be left in smokes by his crown vic... It's an police interceptor, and no it is not supercharged. Would this be a smart race? or will he actually beat me? please help!!

Everyone knows that Crown Victorias have the cop chip from the factory. So sorry, bro, but you will get dusted. It was optional though, so you have to look out for them.
THey have nos on the radio button to be secretive. ask him about it. and also, he'll leave you in the dust.

dangnplus,

If he is stock, you will bust his ass.....

MT did a Police car comparison for 2007. The '05 is basically the same car. The 2007 Crown Vic Interceptor had a curb weight of almost 4,400 lbs, 250HP, 297 lb-ft TRQ, a 7.8 sec 0-60 and ran the quarter mile in 15.9sec at 88.1mph.

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...n/viewall.html

I LOVE it when people take this V6 for granted.

Trust me, I use to drive a police Vic for a living before the v-8 chargers...and boy that thing is slow compared to almost any vehicle to date. It is a high output v-8, but since its time, almost any v-6 can smoke it. The only Vic that would give you a run for the money is the Vic's sister car the Mercury Marauder....and even that would probably have to be tuned a little to compete

The marauder only had 300 hp. The interceptors where nothing more special than their civilian counterparts other than bigger radiators, extra oil collers, trans coolers and heavy duty brakes and maybe some minor suspension tweaks.

Heck Ford even restricted their top speed because of driveline failures. The most any vic went was about 133 mph. This guy would have to have extreme mods to race anything much less your camaro. For starters a high dollar driveline just to keep it moving.

2010 P71 vic interceptor 0-60 is about 7.8 sec. What made them popular was how cheap and easy they were to fix. trans swaps could be done in less than 1 hour......etc.

different engine programming, heavier duty frame, aluminum body parts and best of all, stab plates in the front seatbacks!

The American version of Top Gear had an episode with a couple Crown Vics "TRYING" to chase down a Honda Odyssey the Stig was driving. They couldn't catch up.. LOL!

the theme was testing the much needed new cars available now from Chevy, Ford, and Dodge.

The crown vic was fast back in the day......but now no way. they are quick at higher speeds, but getting to that speed takes forever.

Last month i was a lead car in a pursuit in my city. I was attempting to chase a 2010 Dodge Charger, V6. that car smoked my 2011 crown vic in everyway possible. However no matter how fast the car is, its not faster than a radio. his tires got shredded by spike strips.......Then i was able to keep up with him until he had a friendly greeting with a utility pole

I had a 97, less HP, but considabley lighter than the 08+ models. Ran a blistering 16.1 best time haha. You've got this. I do miss that cars ability to spread traffic out of your way on the highway like Moses parting the red sea

The thought has crossed my mind, but rather put it in a Marauder. 5.0 with the 6 speed auto and 4.10 gears should move out pretty good

not sure if the 5.0 would fit without cutting a hole in the hood, plus its really too small cubes for a full size sedan.
ford could never fit the 5.4 modular because the taller deck meant redesigning the front crossmember or cutting a hole in the hood to clear the valve covers lol

now about 12+ years ago on crownvicnet forum there was a guy trying to drop the V10 modular engine in his vic but I dont know if he ever finished it.
there was a factory concept car a few years ago with the V10 but that was alot of money into it.

Would the Terminator motor pose the same problems?
