Killed a 5.0 today

I was on my way to work with cruise on 60, just minding my business when a 5.0 was on my tail. I wasn't in the mood at the time so I pulled over to let him go and he starts playing with me. So I give him the nod and we both punch it, I pull a half car length on him immediately and slowly increase my lead until we shut down around 120. By that time he was about a half car length behind me.
I really expected more from the mustang...

We gave each other the thumbs up and went our separate ways

Gotta love it. Ford is still trying to out do us, but nothing beats a big ol' 6.0!

Nice kill. Be carefull with those 5.0s though. The owner of my speed shop said those cars are easily making more then 400 at the wheels with just headers/exhaust and a tune. I killed one's time on the Power Tour Montgomery stop last month. He wouldn't run down the track with me side by side but he made MANY passes and his best time was a 13.35. I ran 3 times but only recorded 2 passes and ran a 13.28 @ 106 and a 13.23 @108 (spinning tires most the way,lol) in 101 degree heat with 90% humidity.

Good kill.

Any car can be dangerous just depends on how deep the pockets are.

I'm thankful I didn't get caught and no one got hurt.

But it still felt good
Thats something you could have kept to yourself....

Cat/Rez delete, Diablo Tune with fuel dialed in, Vararam intake. I want headers and a supercharger but I don't have the money for either right now.
