2011 Mustang

Nothing like the sound of a rapped out mustang ripping thru gears in the morning. Wondering what a 37 inch tire looks like thru the passenger window. If I tried I could have taken him, if he was trying.

Believe what you will. I like Fords, that is why I like the powerstrokes, but I just telling you the new 5.0 is one mean engine.

The 4.0 is a whole different motor from the 5.0 and yea I would say you proably have taken him.

They are not that bad of a engine..

yes, alot better than 4.6...

but if they was that mean... shouldn't one still beat a newer SS 0-120 or 0-130mph? alot of times show that the SS is alsmost 2 seconds faster 0-130mph.. and the Camaro weighs how much more? and power difference isn't that much

Interesting, can you back up your data? I would like to see the numbers. Here's a snip from from motortrend at almost 120mph..

Performance testing the 2010 Camaro SS, 2010 Challenger SRT8, and 2011 Ford Mustang GT - Motor Trend

"The Mustang enjoys a (diminishing) advantage in all six gears, which enabled the 'Stang to dominate the acceleration tests, storming to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds (three- and four-tenths ahead of the Chevy and Dodge), and on through the quarter in 12.7 seconds at 111.3 mph (four and six tenths ahead of its 251- and 567-pound heavier sedan-based competitors). Chevy geared the Camaro to avoid a guzzler tax (Dodge pays shareholder Uncle Sam $1751 for each SRT8), making the first three gears 35-39 percent taller than the Mustang's. With equivalent gearing, the race would be a lot closer, but there are no factory options for the Camaro. (It probably isn't feasible for the aftermarket to provide a 4.72:1 ring-and-pinion set, so the tranny internals would probably need changing.) "

The mustang also out brakes and out handles the dodge and chevy. Not to mention the mustang only has a 5.0 versus the camaro's 6.2L.

A 12.7 ET with a completely stock setup is VERY good. There are guys running high 11's with a tune and sticky tires. Guys running 10's with bolt-ons and sticky tires. Hell, even the 2011 V6 runs high 13's from the factory. The new mustang V8 also gets an advertised 26mpg to boot. With mods you can get very close to 30. I fail to see what's NOT great about the motor.

OP, what mods do you have?

Yup. Anyone who thinks they beat a 5.0 in ANY diesel is nuts.
