LMFAO!!! I'm sorry i just lawled sooo hard at this post..

I couldn't agree anymore though. Bullitts are slightly better than GTs, however they're nowhere near the Mach 1s or Cobras. With the Mods I have on my GT, I beat Bullitt that had a CAI. Could have been driver.. I don't know. But if a regular GT can beat a Bullitt with just minor mods (Intake Exhaust) then I'll have to agree that the Bullitt is more for suspension/appearance, than power.

That, and I'm also biased towards Machs and Cobras.. I'm getting one of the two very very soon

I'll take my solid axle with TQ arm and watts link over the cobra's IRS.

Mines not so slow

I wouldn't ever say a Bullitt is a better buy over a Cobra or a Mach1. I got a great deal when I bought mine and that was the only reason.

You know how easy it would be to solve issues like this?

If MORE people with their own Bullits posted up their OWN timeslips, compared to Regular GT owners putting up their timeslips.

Instead of just bench racing and going off figures and numbers tossed around by manufacturers and magazines.

I got my Bullitt for 8k, owner had a kid and needed to get rid of the car asap. The TQ is much flatter and just feels better to drive than a GT. Cobra's are still top dog though for new edges!

My old Gt had some UD pullies, a mac h, different catback, and 4.10's.

I beat my friends Bullitt a couple of times. He would jump off the line a little ahead, I would take the lead, he would start to pull about 3krpm's, but then I would catch him and go by. He would always go on and on about the intake, and how they were underated by Ford. I think they were over-rated by him.

Bullitt's are nice cars though. I will say they felt alot more nimble than my GT though, driving the car felt like it was alot lighter, more pep to it. I'd probably take one, but not over the Mach.

For 10 minutes on a nice sunny day I switched stangs with an older fella I hardly knew...I drove his '01 Bullitt while he drove ahead in my '04 Mach. We both thoroughly enjoyed the drive of eachother's cars. He noticed increased power in my Mach but in no way did I think his Bullitt was a slow poke. It felt nimble and I enjoyed the no-nonsense nostalgia to the car. It's not as powerful but it definately has it's pluses. Even though I love my Mach, I'd buy a Bullitt in a heartbeat. To me, it was exactly what Ford meant for it to be.

I hear that a lot, But I have yet to see a stock or close to stock GT vs a stock or close to stock bullitt dyno comparison.

If that is true (assuming comparable drivers), that really makes me consider the bullitt intake manifold swap.

But I just got my plenum a couple months ago, so it'd would seem like a waste. I guess I'll wait until I crack my stock plastic intake and then look around at options.

It's almost impossible to find comparable drivers though w/o some slips from the track like I suggested. Let's take this thread as an example. I'll go back a couple posts.

from boduke:

Quote:

Assuming stock drivers, being equal, he's suggesting that bullit put three cars on him in the quarter mile (100mph).

Yet, now with almost equal mods..I quote again:

Quote:
...now i have the edge... he has 3.73's tune cai and h pipe.
boduke now has:

CAI,4.10's,Sniper, O/r H pipe, SLP LM II"s

I don't believe that the difference in 4.10's to 3.73's, and a catback, is enough to make up more than a three car difference in the quarter mile.

__________________________________________________ ___________

The point of this is not to call out boduke, or tell him that he's lying.

I'm just trying to point out that it's very very difficult to find comparable drivers and compare two cars based on the outcome of a few races.

I still think we need to see equally, or very near equally modified cars, and compare their time slips. Until that happens, there will be nothing but bickering,hear-say, and other rabble.

Just trying to be a peace-maker/logical reasoner as usual. I generally fail though.

well here's the one for a bullitt. Good luck finding a dyno graph for a Stock GT of a comparable year (99-02). nearly impossible.

http://media.photobucket.com/image/2.../DynoSheet.jpg

haha success!!

blue line is baseline. The Bullitt does have a much flatter TQ curve compared to the stock (blue line) of the GT. Disregard teh red line in thsi graph it has to do with some mods they were doing on this GT.

http://image.musclemustangfastfords....front_view.jpg

and for the record, it's not just numbers that push the car down teh road, it's the areas under the curves. So a flatter TQ curve would have a lot do with a the bullitt being faster with what appears to be minimal gains in net numbers.

I don't buy 1/2 second (0.5) faster in the 1/4 than a stock GT but I would say closer to 2-3 tenths faster.

those dynos aren't of a stock Bullitt and a throttle body will yield no more than a .2 ad in the 1/4. Wow what a long thread!

That you've done nothing more than just make longer by your comment. The Bullit is not just a GT with a throttle body on it.

Reread this thread, and others and you'll find there are other mechanical differences, as well as interior/exterior styling differences.

I see why Bullit owners get mad sometimes, but I also see why non-Bullit people get fed up with them as well.

Alright, smart ****. There's no reason for Bullitt or non-Bullitt owners of a mature age to get mad or fed up as we're all stang owners here. I'm well aware of the Bullitt's differences and advantages in power, suspension, and interior/exterior cosmetics, and after switching cars with a Bullitt owner one day, though mine has a little more oomph, I almost didn't want to get out of his Bullitt! Very nice cars indeed.

On a side note, I'd still rather have a 4v instead of a 2v though. I do enjoy my Bullitt very much and when people know its a Bullitt, get some nice compliments. Whenever I hear people say that's just a GT I just laugh in my head and just nod my head.

There is an obvious engine difference, the Bullitt owner I switched with noticed it more than I did, but the Bullitts are still ever so sweet all around. Those folks that don't know their pony knowledge....well they just don't know. From time to time a fella with a Cobra will say that a Mach is basically a GT. It goes on and on. I have the same reaction you described. Those neysayers are few and far between though as most of us do have a deep respect for all stangs.
