    I easily walk this same manual 2008ish 5.0 around town with at least exhaust but there's no telling if it is in a good mechanical shape. The driver is a gorgeous brunette! I have a stock 04 with 101k miles. I have also stomped a supercharged foxbody. I have yet to lose a race here in Mexico. (Not saying I won't I just haven't met my match yet.)

    My buddy at work has a Whipple on his 07 Shelby 350gt AUTOMATIC lol... He wouldnt even race my little cobalt, from a roll or a dig, he sure as hell won't race my V now or if I ever get my heads machined and a nice can put in it. Lol his stang is a low 13s/high 12s car on a good day. That cobalt could run 12s easy all day long every day. Some mustang owners are as bad as civic guys I swear.

    They didn't make the new 5.0 until 2011, '05-'10 were 3V 4.6's and were significantly slower.

    I don't recall a "350GT", there was a Shelby GT but it wasn't much different than the normal GT. 319hp at the crank, with a small whipple I'd expect it to be a little faster then you're suggesting but they only ran mid-high 13's stock. Also Automatic's are frequently preferred and often faster when drag racing. With a 13 second car maybe not, but there's a tradeoff at some point.

    08 GTs aren't 5.0s, they are 4.6 IIRC

    Truth and truth. Automatics are also more consistent.

    The engine bay looks clean but the stickers... Not so much. Its gotten worse recently as well. That is an old picture. It's just not my style, too much bling in stickies on the side. Granted my car is probably louder than his exhaust wise anyways. To each his own but he's got a sticker for everything he had done on that thing. I thought only Honda guys did that

    Gah wtf? The rest of my post went away... Damn phone and trying to upload pictures.... I think I got it all back now.

    I know autos are better for drags but I was emphasizing that cuz he didn't want to race any of my manuals. Also Shelby gt or 350, I don't know the models of every mustang ever, and for some reason, alot of those generation Shelby GT guys call their cars 350s, its on their license plates and stuff, guys advertise them all the time as a "Shelby 350 GT", I don't know why you'd have to ask them. I do know the fast ones, the termis, the gt500s, LS swapped foxes the ones I know I'll end up losing to with the proper application of money, parts, and psi. Also the low 13s/high 12s are from his video evidence not mine lol. I'll try and find it.

    Edit, looks like the videos he had are no longer on photobucket... I dunno

    Re: Stock Mustang 5.0 vs cts v

    just this last weekend I raced a 2013 mustang 5.0 auto 3.15rear gear, with cold air intake and a tune. He dynoed at 373 to the wheels. I got the jump on him at a roll but he slowly walked away from me (04 V with cold air intake-rest is stock). Had we mashed the gas at the same time he would have pulled away decently i believe. Same night we raced a new camaro ss 6speed, from a roll. it was virtually dead even till we let off. idk if the camaro was in 3rd while i was in 2nd starting out... because he wouldnt talk to us or look over at all. maybe he was a bad shifter.

    You played into the mustang's gearing from a roll... Off the line you would have done better... Do they really come with 3.15s though? I though they started with 3.30 or 3.20s or somethings though. With an option for 3.73 or something?

    the guy claims its a 3.15, he kept going on how he gets such great mpg on the highways with his 3.15 rear gear.

    The autos come with a 3.15 and the manuals standard is 3.31 with 3.55 and 3.73 optional. Not sure which are optional with the auto.

    I ran a 5.0 CS (California Special). He appeared to be stock with a manual. We ran twice from a dig, he had me slightly in 1st, I evened it up in 2nd was pulling away in 3rd. Mine is tuned with headers. I probably would have lost if I was stock...but it's clearly a drivers race.
