So.. Me and my friend are in a huge argument over Mustang Vs. Camaro

Basically, one of my friends uncle was like yea, your V6 (stock) mustang could smoke his v6 (stock) camaro. I was like haha, no. I know a lot about the camaro but not the mustang. CAn someone give me a perfect answer to that? Why a camaro would beat a V6 mustang? He says because the mustang is a 4.0 liter. I don't know that much about that part.. Anyways, just can someone tell me how much the camaro would beat hte mustang?

Ok... S197 V6 Mustangs is something I know a little bit about! LOL! Check out my old website www.v6john.com

The Camaro is a lot heavier... but the Camaro does have the HP/TQ advantage... Here is the dyno sheet to show the big difference:



These are two 100% stock V6 automatics...

I have also lined up against a few S197 V6 Mustangs.... I beat a stock V6 by about .5 sec. Also lined up against a modded one with CAI, exhaust, gears, tune... I beat him twice but barely... very close race!

Camaro: 304 HP

Mustang: 210 HP

Easy as that. More horsepower = More power = Faster.

I really hate to rip on my own engine but the 4.0 is really nothing special. Ask him why Ford is replacing the 4.0 for a 3.7 in 2011 if it is so great.

A stock 4.0 Mustang is no match for a 2010 Camaro. It's an old engine and replacing it is way overdue.

The Camaro is about 250lb on the Stang... But a whole 94hp difference which is more than enough to smoke the Stang. Like everyone said mustang=210hp camaro=304hp. All the number in every way vary in decent amounts athe 1/4 ,the suspension is way better, 0-60 is a killer diff in the racing world, the gas mileage is also a factor in buying a car and the stang only gets 24 the camaro gets 29.

The Camaro is King in almost every way. Go to Kelly Blue Book and do a car comparison.

Well, lets put it this way, on a really good day I cut a 14.66 with a cold air intake and exhaust. The v6 camaro will run that, or maybe better than that stock.
