Default S197 vs Fox

Well yesterday going back to work from lunch I noticed a goldish LS1 T/A while I was filling up with some gas. Well I tried chasing him down but I believe he took one of the exits on to the highway and I didn't notice....

Well on my quest for the T/A (not knowing he turned off) I got behind a really nice Silver 05-09 GT lightly smoked taillights. We stopped at a light me still behind him; light goes green and he takes off faster than the other car beside him and I was able to get on over to get up beside him. This car sounded like sex!!! It def had a mid pipe with mid mount mufflers and turn downs but his tips mounted in the stock location.

Well I ended up getting ahead of him and I got up to the speed limit (60mph) then he zoomed up to me real fast and he paced me for a second, then got right up with me grinning from ear to ear gave me the thumbs up and nodding his head so I went on and geared down to 3rd and he did the same I counted on my fingers to 3 and we took off at the same time I started pulling instantly pretty good it went 1 car then 2 cars then right at 3 cars by the top of 3rd (right at 90) and He shut down so I did too.

He didn't pull back up for anymore of the fox but as I made my u-turn I threw my hand out the window and he threw a friendly rev at me. I wish I could of gotten the T/A but I love a good ol' mustang to mustang action!

Thanks bro and even a light bolt on 3v I figured would hang in the a little better I guess but I don't know haha

But that would be the T/A it sounded like it might of had at least a muffler but I've been told its a 6sp car too so if the guy could drive it could be a good time! Lol

Good run!! As your brother said I think you have most NA 3V's covered with your car. I haven't seen the gold Trans Am around, I will have to be on the lookout.

Good run against the 3V. They pull OK with a few key mods, but I'm not surprised you walked away. The highest mine trapped with 4.10s, Tune, Intake, UDPs, and mufflers was 108. Strong car, but not nearly enough to keep up with yours.

Ride looks amazing, man! Can't wait to line up with it in the near future :P

Well when you shift gears faster than a God damn DSG out of a GTR, I'm not surprised at your outcome !

+1 on that shifting. Sounds just like he's bumping some paddle shifters VS an old *** 5 speed, lol.

The mufflers and the gears aren't going to do squat for that cars trap but then you already know that. Intake/tune and UDP is going to get it in the 285-295whp range. Typically.

Most are well over 300whp with cams and an exhaust assuming the other obligatory crap (intake/tune, cmdp/udp).

Both might be correct.

Not denying the latter however yes they do get over 300whp with full bolt ons minus cams and head work.
