Stock Goat vs Modded Mustang GT

Tonight my buddy and I decided to go cruising. He drives a 2002 Mustang GT. As far as mods hes got: K&N CAI, throttle body and intake plenum, headers, full Exhaust with X pipe, Predator tune, short throw shifter and some FAT 315's on the rear. Looks and sounds BAD. They claim his car is making about 350hp. I rode in it a couple of nights before we actually raced and was a little scared that hed get me. We went from a roll several times tonight from about 40-45mph. Each time I pulled three cars on him by 90. He said he hates how fast my car is stock haha. I drive an 06 GTO M6. My mods are an AEM CAI and h-pipe with resonator delete. No tune.

We went from a dig once...Beat him by even more that time. He was spinning bad though. Not sure if those cars have LSD's or not.

I was thoroughly impressed with the Goat's performance tonight because so far this was the first REAL race with a REAL challenge. My dyno tune is this month so that should be fun. LOVE it.

Nice kill, I'd think it would have been a much closer race.

nice, funny he had that bad a of a traction problem w/ the 315s, the couple of people I know with GTs similar to what u described never really impressed me. Not untill the one got a blower, and the other got a 100 shot.

Maybe my Goat is a factory freak! Wouldn't that be awesome! I doubt it though

Thats just the thing. When I rode in it, and drove it when he first got it....I was def impressed. Scared even! It def, has a lower torque band and feels faster than my car. Could be the overwhelming exhaust volume. THING IS LOUD. Anyhow, I won by a considerable enough margin to say that between his car and my car is NOT a driver's race. My car is def quicker.

Nice kill and did he ever get his car dynoed to see what his car is actually pumping out? Stock those mustangs are rated at 260-265 hp with similar torque numbers but they really don't have that. I'm sure with the mods he has on there it might have 300+ hp which is still less than what a stock LS1 or LS2 GTO produce. One of my buddies had the same year GT with a few mods similar to those like your friends and it felt quick cause its a smaller and lighter car but never raced him with it since he sold that car.

Was he talking a lot of smack about his car and that he would smoke your GTO?

Nice. I would have thought he would need gears to make it interesting anyway.

I really doubt that he had 350+hp out of that car thats a gain of almost 100hp just with bolt ons. I drove my friends 04 Mustang GT with CAI, mid-pipes, catback and 315's on the rear. That car was still gutless compared to my GTO back when I had a few bolt ons. I think he had around 300hp at the crank best.

No he wasn't talking any smack. He has a lot of a respect for my goat. He loves my car. Before we even raced, he told me that he wouldn't be surprised if I beat him while I was stock.

If you're friend was making near 300hp with just those mods, I dont think it sounds so unlikely that my buddies car is close to 350....even if that is a little optimistic.
