It's a mess, but I'll have it cleaned up this weekend and take better pics. Let me know if there is something specific. I will get the ambient lighting at night - that is one of the coolest things.

Looks good man, i never dug those rims though, they got some sick 5 spokes for the new stang you should check them out, and btw black is the fastest color i like the capless fuel filler another nice innovation.

You've got me confused. How is an SRT8 going to "rip me a new one" when I had 5 people at the latest car show out here tell me about the motor trend article and when people have quoted straight from the article here.
Which article was that? Nice looking Stang you got there too. Enjoy it!

With the Camaro, Stang, and Chally on the cover? If so they tested an RT Chally in that article, not the SRT.

The 4.6 from the Mustang GT's just aren't up to the task of holdin up to much power past 500 rwhp.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not dogging the new Mustang GT. I think they look better than the camaro IMO but I would never say that on this site

But I think even the RT's are ahead of the Mustang GT's through the 1/4 more often than not, regardless of what happened on that article.

Yeah, I think most comparisons are supposed to be stock for stock.

Definitely a nice aftermarket for Mustang's though and I'll be damned if I'm not thinking about one.

What are you talking about.... the GT engine can hold up to 1000 HP with no engine reinforcements whatsoever. all you do is slap a supercharger on at 40 pounds of boost.......

Sorry Vizon, but I have got too set the record stright. 1st the Mustang with a track pack IS NOT 400lbs lighter than a Camaro SS.
Camaro SS 3860lbs - Mustang 3572lb = 288lbs

Also it takes more than hp to go fast like gearing. The mustang with track pack has 3.73 gears and 27" diameter tires compared to the camaro 3.45 gears and 28.6" tires (probaly a big reason the camaro is more fuel efficient)
2nd 0-60 is meaning less, 1/4 mile times and trap speeds are much better at testing acceleration. In those cases the mustang is left in the dust.

Mustang GT: 0-60 5.2 sec 1/4mile 13.7 102-103mph
with Track pack: 0-60 4.9 sec 1/4 13.5 104mph

Camaro SS: 0-60 4.7 1/4 13.0 @ 111mph
2011 Camaro SS with 3.73 gears: I am guessing 0-60 4.4 sec 1/4 12.7-12.8 @ 114mph maybe

Edit: does your mustang have the track pack, if not then I your car will not duplicate those number, espescially in handleing.

With a 111 mph trap speed the camaro IS A high 12 sec. car, When they did their acceleration test, it was in freezing tempatures (34%) and could not get traction.
