heavy v6 vs lighter v8 =failure

compare v8 vs v8

The mustang will take it off the line and in the top end too only because it has a v8 and is lighter.

Yeah,
The Mustang GT's are pretty fast. They are very capable of mid to high 13s. From what I've been reading the V6 Camaro will most likely be a mid to high 14 sec car.

That's not to say a V6 Camaro can't suprise a GT and beat it. But drivers being equal, the Mustang GT will have a decent advantage over the V6 Camaro.

i think the v6 will be more 14.5 mabey less with good driving
but as posted in another thread with the 3.6 DI intake and exhaust added 31whp /w out a tune. now thats power that will probably take a GT.

The V6 Camaro will not run mid 13s (there's no way). With 300hp and 3800 lbs it will run up in the 14s in the 1/4 mile.



The V8 Camaro (in testing - from what I've read) run low 13s.

Depends on which Mustang GT.

If it's a 95-96-97, KILL HIM!

Especially if it's some cocky ass little ricer with Flowmasters and dumps on his "mighty" 215 hp 4.6 automatic.

This version of a ricer is easy to spot. He'll have both Cobra badges and Nissan GT-R badges on his fender. He'll try to tell you that his car is a Cobra but lacks the Cobra domed hood.

He'll roar through an amazingly mediocre 9.9 second eighth mile and then tell you, "There must be something wrong with my turbos....I ran 4 seconds last week. Maybe I need some more noss."

YOU MUST KILL HIM FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY

The GTO with 400hp and a weight of 3700 lbs runs low to mid 13s.

It is possible a V6 Camaro could run high 13s (in excellent conditions) but
14s are more likely.
My quess is most Testing will show mid 14s or so for the V6 Camaro.

i've been told that the GTO had issues of some sort and got housed by the GT... if that is true and the camaro gets the same treatment i'll be very disappointed...

I've never heard that.
The GTO is faster than the GT and everyone knows that. In every test I've ever seen the GTO has run faster than the GT. Most magazines have the GTO running 13.3s @ 107 mph or so, which is several tenths faster than the GT.

I dont think anybody is but physics dont lie. Gm brought some big power to go with the extra 300 lbs. I say mid to low 14's will be average quarter times. Just be careful when you pull up to a v6 Camry because they are no slouch either these days.

I have to agree w/chevys, unless the Camaro's V6 under-rated quite a bit the extra weight it will tote around will give a current-body style GT the edge. Previous years better watch out though.

The current Mustangs aren't the slouches they've been in the past, so even if you're a Camaro fan you have to give credit where it's due. There's no way a heavier V6 will beat a lighter V8, it's just basic physics.

Keep in mind that this current generation of Mustangs will only be competing with the Camaro for about six months; the new generation of mustangs will arrive in fall of '09. If they have the 400-hp 5.0 in them like they're supposed to, the Camaro could be in real trouble (assuming the Mustang still weighs the same as the current model). I recently saw some spy shots of the updated interior and it is leaps and bounds above the current model.

What really interests me though is the twin-turbo V6 Ford has been developing. It's supposed to be good for 390-415 hp while getting impressive gas mileage to boot. I suppose it would be too much to ask for Ford to revive the Thunderbird and drop that twin turbo inside it...

Every review I've found (plus my own experience) puts the stock GT's in the mid 13s. I've got a Ford Racing catback w/ headers and CAI and it'll run about 13.3 on average.

Question

The point of the new mustangs is a good one. This is why i would assume we will see the DI V-8 Gen V engine come out very soon from GM. They don't want to be outdone, obviously. They will use the ls3 for a test on the car market and to work out the bugs. I am willing to bet that after all that they will be rolling that Gen V engine out, and we will see the camaro rule again. Very similar to what they did with the G8 gxp. Bring out the G8 GT as the top model, then drop the GXP a year or two later. The camaro will have the nice v-6 and the ss with the LS3, and then dare i say...the Z28 in the next two years after original release. Just a thought...?

For the life of me I dont remember those cars weighing that much. Are you sure about that? Im starting to think a fairly light TTv6 mustang could have a lot of potential given how good those regals were.

3280 according to this link.
