Unhappy I live next to a ricer and a mustang...

My neighbor has a 5.0 mustang and my other neighbor has a riced out honda civic with a fart can. Forget about the Honda but what does the 5.0 run, and can it pull me, a stock v6 LFX?

The new 5.0 is a close race with the SS, so yes you would get slaughtered

What year GT? Anything recent will leave you in the dust.

Yeah, like asked above, what year Mustang? Even a 2005 Mustang will beat you - just not as bad as the new ones. A V6 is for cruising and enjoyment for the most part.

Well it's not gonna be a 2005 since he said 5.0 (unless he's incorrect and just assuming all GT's = 5.0). Either it is 2011+ or pre 95 (I think that was the last year)

Short of going FI, I don't think "some mods" will even get him close.

We need to know the track layout
Like altitude , altitude change , ( grade ) temperature ,humidity , left &right hand turns ,bank angle and what kind/& conditions off the pavement
Then we can start talking

I'd put that Sky against a LFX on any track and any configuration ... That little car just flat out runs, in a straight line and even better with turns.

I'm guessing the mustang must be the late 80s, early 90s 5.0 right? Otherwise you'd be insane to be asking if your stock LFX can hang with a new 5.0 Mustang.

If that 5.0 is near stock, you should have the quicker car overall, but they are very light so it may be a bit quicker off the line assuming it runs good. On the road, your LFX should be the quicker car.

If it is modded, well then who knows.

Is that a turbocharged Sky?

Unlikely. Even the non-track pack 5.0s have excellent cornering, even with the live axle.

The V6 Camaro did not get the sport tuned suspension. So it would need a suspension upgrade to run with the Five-0 in the corners.

The 5.0 would kill it in a corner.

Slingshot...you forgot to tell us that your Sky is running the optional tune, and isn't much slower than a stock SS....of course its going to beat an LFX. Why brag???

I'm sure the OP is talking pre 95 5.0 Mustang....or hes insane to believe his LFX will compete with a newer 5.0.

Yep, Redline 2.0 with GMPP tune and Magnaflow exhaust running around 300hp/350tq and driven daily by a 18 year old girl.

Got to admit the OPs original post is lacking some important details. Anyway, a 90' 5.0 would put up a good fight and maybe put a hurt on you if it aint stock...A properly modded/gutted Civic can give a SS a good run FYI.
