I just purchased my first mustang, a 1998 gt 5 speed, it sounds amazing but it seems really slow to me. i got beat by a v6 infiniti too. my mustang is a 4.6 with deleted cat converters, km cold air intake, aftermarket throttle body, an x pipe exhaust, and even 3.73 gear aspect ratio, i don’t see why it would be getting beat by a v6 with the mods done to it

It's getting beat by a V6 Infiniti (I'm assuming a G35 or G37), because compared to one of those, it IS slow.

You're taking an early 4.6 with it's 215 stock horsepower, and mods that, other than gears, are mostly placebo effect, against a far more modern car with more power.

I feel your pain man, my 98 is kinda slow too. When the basic V6 sedan is around 300hp, our 225 doesn't exactly cut it.
