06 GTO vs 11 Mustang 5.0

Hey fellas ran a new stang last night and LOST !!! i couldn't believe it i thought it was a fluke that he took me but we ran again and he got me a second time. This was my first encounter with one of these and i honestly thought id smoke him. What is it with these cars are the actually faster than the GTO stock vs stock???? I live in the northeast and it was a cold night and hooking up was a problem but once i got it to go i just couldn't pass him. Anybody with some insight are the new Mustangs faster or maybe this guy was blowing smoke up my skirt and the car had some mods?? I don't know but please let me know what you guys think!

Those stock 5.0's are way fast. Underrated from the factory.

Stock 5.0 will eat up a stock Gto any day

Newer technology. Aren't they rated at 412 hp or something like that? I have ran one and I did beat him but mine isn't stock. I beat him, yes, but I didn't smoke him.

They're less than 100 lbs lighter than a GTO and only 12 more hp, stock vs. stock. but half a decade ahead technology wise.

They seem to dyno between 365-375rwhp. Thats easily 20hp+ more than a stock ls2.

Mustang = 3,620lbs
GTO = 3,725lbs.

So thats another 100lbs+ more of weight, and 20+hp less to the wheels

You are looking at the convertible numbers, the coupe is 3605lbs according to that.

Bottom line is that Mustangs are lighter and have more power. Stock vs. stock. That fact is not in question. You could quote posted weight specs all day long. They'll vary depending upon where you get them from and likely still differ from the two actual cars that race each other.
