A 5sp is good for a low 14...even a 13.8-13.9 at best. Again, equal driving skills and the 99-04 Mustang GT will win.

True...the "Ford GT" is actually a supercar. It costed over $140,000 and was produced from 2004-2006 with a mid engine 5.4 DOHC supercharged engine that made about 550 hp. That car was good for mid 11s bone stock.

Lmao those 2v are all POS slow pathetic and should be stripped of any "muscle car" pretentions that ever came with it.... There were 3 last Friday with bolt ons and skinnys in front, slicks in back running 14's @ 93-97 mph ahahahah. An Accord from 10 years ago will walk one on the highway and they put less power to the ground then an accord of the same year

You are out of your mind. If they ran that slow then it was the driver's fault. And you are simply crazy if you think an Accord will "walk" or even keep up with one on ANY road. There are bone stock 5 speed New Edge GTs that run low 13s on slicks out here in NJ. A cam and slicks will propel a 5 speed into the 12s. You seem to have a lot of false knowledge about a lot of cars man...

With an exceptional pilot a 260 hp 2v could get into the 13's. They could be pretty quick out of the hole. Here we go......... Motor trend got 14.00 @ 100mph, just besting the s/c Lightening they were testing at the time.

My '99 isnt fast by any means, but I went 13.6@100 with 4.10s a midpipe and catback on drag Radials.

Again, nothing great, but it used to feel fun *now it feels like it cant get out of its own way compared to the new car*

...if you want to compare performance numbers, well, the GT500 retains it's title of the highest hp, worst performing car in the world.

If you want a guaranteed win vs a GT mustang in your V6 you'll have to go all the way back to the pre 99 GT's which put out 225 (or 215 I forget?) HP.

Torque and weight take away any HP advantage the V6 Camaro has!

I agree with you on that one NYY, one of the slower GT's since the 80's.
