??? or a stock 5.0 vs's 99+ gt?
a stock 88+ lx 5 speed "could" take out a 99+
very novice driver in a 99-04gt vs a pro in a 88 lx coupe 5speed and im sure the coupe would nose out....
180hp (5.0) vs 260 (4.6)... wieght is a factor but I say 4.6 wins stock for stock.
both are 14 second cars in stock form, though a "stock" 5.0 would be 15+ years old today so I doubt it'd have the kick that it once had
87-93 5.0's put out 225hp, 96-98 gt 215-225hp, 99-04 gt's 260hp. I think the 5.0's have like 10 foot pounds of torque more than the 4.6's. But they are much lighter especially a notch so it could be a close race. The chances of running into a bone stock 5.0 these days is very unlikely though.
A LX coupe could take a 99+ GT... the LX hatch and GT are less likely, especially the heavier GT.
try 225 is what the stock 5.0's were rated at 87-92
Nope, given equal drivers the 99' up GT will walk all over a 5.0
I've had a few 5.0 LX's [still own a 91' LX] at the same time as I've owned my 98' GT. The stock 5spd 5.0 will just edge out the stock 98' in the 1/4, 14.89 vs 14.91. The 5.0 GT's usually run very high 14's-low 15's.
I think it depends on the car really, now granted you said stock, my old 91 gt 5 spd with just an h-pipe and flow's ran 14.2 at 100 mph with stock 2.73 gears, I also had a stock 92 notch that was auto, now that ran 15.3 at 91 but it was stone stock auto with 2.73s
depends But I'd put my money on the foxbody.
I know for a fact my buddies bone stock down to the tires 92 lx hatch 5spd on his first trip to the track with 120K on the motor went a 8.81 in the 1/8th. The quickest bone stock 99+ car I've seen there was a 9.1's.
I've gotten pretty good times with my LX when running DR's [[email protected]
Oh, the 98' has stock 3.27's and the LX has 2.73's.
A stock LX coupe with a 5 speed is capable of high 13's. Most stock 99+ GT's seem like they are 14-14.4 or so. Mine went 9 flat in the 1/8th, so comparitivley to what BooWFO is saying, the notch is 2 10ths quicker than I in the 1/8th mile.
No. My turd 96 GT convertible was taking out 87-93 gt hatchback light after light. Only mod i had was flowmaster catback.
Cause GT's were the heaviest Fox's, most of them ran a 14.8-15 flat stock with a 5 speed, and mid 15's or worse auto.
An LX coupe like squares is talking about is a ton lighter.
Ive driven one and it feels faster than my GT.
I've owned enough 5.0's to know that a 99+ will beat a 5.0. The 99+ just has alot more pull above 3k rpm than the other 4.6's and the 5.0's also. Considering equal driver, perfect conditions, both 5 spds, brand new off the show room floor, 99+ takes it in my experience.
A notchback would put up the best numbers, but the 99+ just run pretty good for a tiny 2V.
My 99 Limited is defonantly quicker than the 4 5.0's i've had. No bias either, I love the 5.0 as much as anyone.
In the 4.6 forum? No.
In the 5.0 forum? Yes.
