6.0 vs early 90's 5.0 mustang

Hey A friend of mine who lives down the street from me has a stock 1990 mustang gt that is an auto. Since this Friday is the last weekend for midnight mayhem he has been on my nuts about a race. Is this even a fair race, stock 6.0 vs stock 5.0 auto.

Or should I buy a programmer from the diesel shop intown.

Also what kind of times should i expect from my truck if I do run it at the strip.

He will most likely get you at the end. Dont risk it. Get a programmer.

A stock 6.0 should run about 16.1 - 16.3.

stock vs stock you will lose. stock 5.0 vs 6.0 with "just a chip" you will probably still lose.
a bone stock 5.0 with the belt removed can run a high 13 with a good driver and good launch.

wow. his car is really tired then. i had a 93fox 5.0 gt with a 5 speed. and when it was still bone BONE stock, i ran a 13.9 and all i did was remove the serpentine belt. tell him to get a tune up ! what year is his ? anyway i dont even sweat the mustangs now if they are stock, i look for the faster ones to prey on, and even the occasional vette has a hard time trying to shake me on the hiway (until i back it out of it for fear of nuclear meltdown close to 2000 degrees)

LOL, yeah your truck is a beast I read the list of mods on snps.org

Well it is a 1990 year model. And has 92k miles on the ticker, But those motors where lucky to put out 220 horse. And with it being an auto and all he cant launch it for **** in fear of blowing the tranny in a neutral drop.

Because for some reason when I told him about power breaking it to get the rpm's up, he thinks it will screw the entire brake and drive train system not to mention over heat the motor. When I try to tell thats hows other drag racers launch he does not listen. In his mind its either neutral drop or nothing lol.
