Not necessarily true. Performance doesn't matter to everyone. Some people will buy the Camaro/Mustang based on looks alone. Not to mention the fact that you have the die hard Ford/GM guys/gals that won't purchase the enemy even if it's rated as having more power, etc. That would be unthinkable. Both cars have their pros/cons and there are many more factors in play than just performance.

I bought the Camaro primarily because of it's performance capabilities but the design was a very close second. I'm also one of those people who has always owned a GM vehicle. That's just my opinion and as we know, opinions vary.

Mustang is going to sell its cars no matter what Gm does !!!!!!!!

The love of Mustangs and a lot of americans is like a Cult.

Gm doesnt need to do anything right now with hp they need to keep going like they are and play it safe.

There is no way a Camaro will get a bump in hp because if it would it would pass up Corvette and that wont happen.



simple you want a mustang go buy you one they will be at every light

You want a smooth car , fast , killer styling ? Get a Camaro and hey throw on a exhaust , Cai and Tune and let the mustang boys come play

we still dont know is it a typical ford motor meaning how does it react to mods ?

yeah go ahead throw a Supercharger on that car your compression is so high now thats going to be fun lol Ford had to throw everything is coud to get the stang where it is. ( they did a good job also ) however there isnt much room to work with if you want to improve .


I love my Camaro and would still buy another over mustang anyday.

The car is a beauty, probably the only mustang I would ever own. Well I would still own a stock gt500, but not a regular gt. I might have more pictures of it somewhere, I have to ask someone first. LOL

A very real possibility.

+1 kinda justifies me not paying an extra $6000 for the SS/RS package now!

Agreed. My parents have an old Miata that I used to drive. Manual seats, manual top, manual windows, manual everything. Sometimes that simplicity is part of the charm of having a sports car.

Whipple says they already have a new GT(5.0) supercharger kit that will make 600hp @ 7 PSI on the 5.0.

Compression isn't necessarily the enemy, remember the LS3 has very similar compression as the 5.0, it is detonation.

The GT500 is a beast and is a hell of a looking car. Much better than the base Mustangs.

Im kind of relieved that they didnt do much to the 2011 SS. Because I was half way tempted to wait for it, instead I went with my gut feeling and bought a 2010 SS.....wait I mean GT500. And had it twin turboed. Is that how you spell turboed? It looks weird.

hell you can get a cheap one for less than 30 bucks at wal-mart. In fact I took this one with a $19 camera.

Good thats even better NEWS

if you have a LS3 get you a Maggy and go let Andy at ADM fix you up lol

if you have a L99 get you a procharger and let him fix you up.



again Gm wasnt going to bump Camaro in its 2nd year in hp especially make it to where the camaro will have more Hp than Corvette.

Do you honestly see Gm sitting here and letting Mustang wear a crown real long like Mustang did with gm for years ?

HELL NO

As Scott settlmire told me a Few years ago " have FAITH " GM WONT BACK DOWN


Congrats Ford you did a good job


The Giant isnt sleeping he is watching lol
