Default 05 v6 vs 04 gt??

Did I talk myself into a race I can't win or do I have a chance? My 05 has cai and tune and 8.8 rear with 2.73 gears cause I haven't been able to change them yet and stage 2 clutch. Gt has headers and exhaust, cai, and stage 3 clutch.

You will lose. Sorry. The 05 V6 is heavier than the 04 GT and makes less horsepower and torque. Won't even be close.

if it was bone stock and you didnt have gears designed to get 800 mpg it would be a race....

Lol about the gears they are getting changed to 3.55s here next month. Maybe I will wait to race him when I get my heads and cams finished.

Even if I do race him I like the rush of the race more than winning at least when it is only for fun. Now if it was for a competition I would only race cars I have beat before. I will try out my 91 race tune and see what happens maybe strip my car down to lose some weight

Without gears and drag radials, I don't think it's going to matter.

I once raced a 99-04 GT. I had dual exhaust and I may have had the 91 race tune on it by then, the GT looked stock. It took me on the take off, but from there, I kept right on his tail. I agree with a previous post, if the GT was stock and if you didn't have those wimpy gears, you may have had a chance. And if you're gonna change your gears, why not 3.73s or 4.10 instead of 3.55? If your gonna upgrade, you may as well make it worth it and go big.

I'd still go 4.10. My 2008 GT, with just a tune, probably makes about as much power as the average X-Charger V6 and they were perfect.

Get a real gear! 4.10.

I believe I was the one who used that quote haha

"Muscle Car - An American performance car from the early 60's to the early 70's. They were generally an upgraded variant of a less powerful family car. Companies such as Chevy, Ford, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, Dodge, and Plymouth joined the game. They all followed the same basic rules: 1. there is no replacement for displacement 2. there is no substitute for cubic inches 3. horsepower sells motors, but torque wins races.
The basic idea was to get the biggest engine and stick it in the smallest car available at the time. The muscle car era was killed by inflating gas prices, emissions, and the cracking down of insurance companies."

My car only has an axle back and I raced my buddy in his '03 GT.
At lower RPMs it was a decent race (I still lost, but by very little) But once we got going he was gone. :/

I agree with this. With the "X" and 3.73's, first gear is something you're shifting out of almost before your foot drops the clutch...

I'm going to the TR-6060, which has a first gear ratio more agreeable to the 3.73's but for the stock t-5, the 3.55 should be good.

You might be surprised. Mine's been running with the "X" for about 47K, and one of the sychros is just now getting a bit cranky.
