75 shot nitrous, should do nicely... just simple bolt-ons won't cut it.. Unless you extensively... Full exhuast, chip, intake, ignition, pulleys, beefer tires, traction control ( if you have a problem with that) like traction bars etc.. Lower it to reduce wind drag, um.. i think about it..

What? I have the ext cab 4.3L and I was toasting mustang GT's from day one. The newer ones anyway. I havent raced a 5.0. The only newer Stang that has beaten me was at the track and he was spraying.

5.0L/8cyls. = .635 L per Cyl.
4.6L/8cyls. = .575 L per Cyl.

:dunno: I never go to the "track"
Too crowded, too much money, and most of all too many as$holes (I got a very short temper and as$holes + me = fist flying)

Im not taking anything from the guys thats say they beat the Stangs but I find it hard to believe. I sold a 2000GT Mustang to get a 2002 Xtreme. I got the truck cause it looked nice and i can throw crap in the truck bed when i need it. But a 260HP mustang Vs. a 190 HP S-10. And I know the S-10's dont have 302ft. lbs of torque. GT:0-60 5.5secs. S-10(4.3)0-60 7.6 secs. My GT ran a 13.9 in the 1/4 stock. I know my s-10 will be lucky to hit 15's. I have 4 friends w/pimped out S-10's(another reason I bought my truck) and when we went out, I used to play with them. What do you guys have that makes you faster than the Stangs? I'm not FLAMING anyone..Dont take this personally.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You guys talking about smoking GT's like its your job (while you are stock). Maybe 83 gt's or something.

When I went to the track I ran even with a 96 4.6 litre. and he had absolutely no mods at all.

I had a race with a 2002 GT stick the other weekend, and he beat me by a truck length.

I have alot of bolt on mods, and the only way I am going to beat a new mustang is by sprayin some N20 along with those mods.

Id love to see a stock X beat a stock 2002 GT, but it just won't happen unless the GT is in park. :drinkhaha

Are you sure thats not a 6 banger stang?? LOL
Nope, it was a 8.

You guys need to remember that track times are track times.
A street race or dog fight on the freeway is different, a lot of things determine the winner. Anything can happen on the street.

I would have found it hard to believe (I'm a V8 guy myself), but I have been driving my g/f's Blazer a lot lately and have raced and beat many cars that I thought it would lose to. I'm sure it'll get awful track times and I could care less, I'm not in modding out her Blazer (or any V6). But I can get it to hold its own on the street.
