IM PISSED!!! These 4.3's are ROTTEN! I run one of my good friends that owns a 2000 V6 Mustang 5 Speed. And he busted my ass by 2 cars! It makes me want to cry!!!!! OUCH!!!!!!! I can't believe how sorry these 4.3's are! ****TY. Mine is a 2001 Xtreme 4.3 Standard Cab Auto w/3.42 Posi, Intake, Exhaust, 3 Inch Drop. ANYWAYS, I STILL cant believe that I got my ass kicked that bad! What's up with these S10's? I LOST TO A V6 FORD MUSTANG!!!!!! I'm so upset that I'm seriously thinking about putting a FOR SALE sign on the S10

weird....a 10 hp difference stock(actually less since you mod'd) doesn't equate to 2 lengths, even with a 5 speed since I sure the stang is heavier, by a few hundred pounds at least.

Either you're a suck-as$ driver,
or you're truck isn't running healthy,
or you're a Ford guy coming here coming here to try to start sh!t (notice low-post count)

I've beat tons of stock and modded V6 Mustangs with a stock 2dr Blazer. I've driven a couple of them myself, they feel slower than a S10's V6.

I know for a fact that the 5spd V6 Mustangs are faster!

Here's the facts straight up

V6 Mustang 5spd weighs 3023
My S10 weighs 3410 with full tank and without me in it! And I weigh only 160

Trucks are about as aerodynamic as a box.

99-up Mustangs have 10 more horses than S10

The Mustang 5spd specs are 15.7 in a 1/4 mile
5spd S10 is 16.2
Automatic S10 is 16.8

I would love to switch out my auto for a 5spd but its too much trouble and $$$ just to get close to a V6 Mustang, plain and simple, the 4.3's arent what they are all made out to be. And I'm disapointed with my 2001 S10

Usually when people start posting facts,

Those facts don't mean anything----real life experience does.
More people here have beat those Mustangs than have lost to them.

I know that the V6 Mustangs are slower. How do I know? I had to drive 2 of them for work. I had them for a month.I drove them to their limits too. They suck. I don't want to be seen driving one, because they are considered "b!tch cars". Yolu laugh at a guy driving a V6 Mustang. And my brother bought one, he traded in a month later because it was slower than he thought, not to mention all the hell he got from his friends and family for buying it.

Guys on this site are shooting for V8 Mustangs, they don't even sweat the V6s.

and if you know how, you can drive your auto just as quick as a maneul.

Ok then, I have smoked 98-earlier V6 Mustangs. YES them OLDER Mustangs are SLOWER. BUT what the 99-UP Mustangs, Look me and the other guy kicked it at 25 MPH, both kicked at the same time. Mine wasnt in Drive, it was in Low-1, And then I put it up to drive right after we kicked. We kicked at the same time, he pulled me nearly 2 cars. His is pretty much BONE STOCK, just a flowmaster. Mine has a flowmaster and K&N cold air. SO nuff SAID. 99-up V6 Mustangs are faster. As much as I hate to admit it. And if anyone knows of a way to make my 4L60E auto tranny faster than the S10 5spd tranny, TELL ME
