I go to work around 3:30 or so in the afternoon, just about time all of the local schools in my area get out. I was minding my own business (really). As I pulled onto the road that goes to behind my workplace, 2 guys in a mustang, 87-93 body, pulled in behind me like a bat out of hell. The rode my ass for at least a 1/2 mile until I stopped to see what the hell their problem was. They said that they heard that my truck was quick. We line them up and I ate him out of the hole and then that damn stang blew by me like I was sitting in park. EMBARRASSING as hell. Proof that looks and sounds can be deceiving. I did not get a chance to see what it was running but I will find out.

The best time that I have ran to date is at Motorsports park in Memphis, TN. It was a 13.28 @ 101.05. That was just a few weeks after getting everything put together and still in the fine tuning process. I would guess that I could shave at least a tenth or two off that now.
And I am positive that the stang had nitrous. Stangs are everywhere where I live like a damn plague. Every one has a bottle. Most are still slow as hell though.

That sucks dude but think of the joy you have when a 92-95 gt gets spanked by an S-10 those things are poop! My buddy at work has a 94 with the 5.slow and I give him crap all the time.

Depending on whats done to those they can be ungodly fast. I rode in a supercharged 91 that had 350HP. It was sooooo fast. I ran with a newer one on the highway the other day. It was the newer style gt & it was an auto. We both hit it down on the highway at about 55 & he stayed at my door till we let off at about 90. I have also been whooped by mustangs too. It depends on the year, the upgrades, driver, etc. I think that body style has the most potential to be lethal though. They were already pretty fast stock & the bolt-ons list goes on forever. You see alot more power gains from their bolt on than our trucks too. I wouldnt be too embarassed, your times are way more than respectable. Just remember there is always someone bigger & badder, but most of the time with times like that you will be the winner, so give credit when its due. P.S. Go whoop someone's a$$ real quick to make you feel better:)

I know most of yall hate Mustangs but I love fox-body 5.0s. I had a 88 hatch before my s-10. Light weight and quick from factory, huge performance aftermarket options, easy to work on ( as opposed to newer Z28 & TAs example: spark plug replacement) When I have the money to build one right my dream car is a turbo'd 92 or 93 coupe sleeper... check out www.turbomustangs.com

Just wait till one of those stock 03' Cobra's hands it to you big time. They will go into the 12's on street tires stock. With a decent driver.

I got my ass handed to me by one of those. It had a air intake magnaflows and a 14psi pully. Ran a [email protected] on streets. Really sucked!!!!

I got a few new toys comin' my way. I Really wish someone in my area would buy one so I could at least see how close I come (if not outrun it). I can homestly say that a mustang in the right hands can be awesome. But for every fast one there are 20 that think they are. So just keep bustin' their pride with our dymes. LOL

A buddy at my work has a 03 Cobra. Don't even waste your time. Hes ran a few 12.teens at 116 mph with just the blower pulley. He also has nitto drag radials but even those dont help much when your putting down over 350rwhp I bet.

most of the stock 03 cobras are putting down 380+ at the rear wheels or so they claim. I have a 2000 z28 auto, with 3.73, lid, and hypertech. So far with shifting problems the best run is 13.1 @ 107.44. That same night there were 3 03 cobras at the track, and only one was running 13.1 he had full exhaust, blower pulley, and intake. I was not impressed with any of them. I also have a buddy with one, and his best 1/4 is a 13.5 @ 105.
