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.

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.
