Re: Whats Faster?

at the crank, you have 8 less hp, but 4 more ft/lbs of torque; this isnt a big deal, so both cars are pretty much the same at the crank. the two cars are almost equal in weight. but his is a manual, where yours is a auto. this is where he will probably edge you out. it will really depend on the driver. he is probably around ur age (15) so he shouldnt have any manual driving experience, so you should win. just my $.02. o yea, but dont race til you have driven your car and know EVERYTHING about it.

Re: Whats Faster?

id say that if one of these guys like zim, whos had a lot of manual tranny driving, was driving the volvo, hed probably be able to edge out the stang. not that he would want to drive it tho....lol

My money would be on the Volvo, but I wouldn't put much money on it. It's worth a race, for sure.

Here is the quote of the day. Based on your limited experience driving, do not even think about racing anyone until you have a good bit of time seat time.

A V6 mustang isn't a torque monster, but with only mere months experience driving, it can be a very lethal toy and change your life forever. No fast n furious stuff...

Re: Whats Faster?

You will get walked on the top end of the power band.
I raced a stock one when I had my old tune/intake/exhaust and I got him out of the hole but was quickly passed on the top end.

He now has cams/bov/full exhaust/full intake/computer upgrades.
It's a damn quick car now.

Re: Whats Faster?

ehh, idk, i looked up both cars. the stang has a little less hp, but a little more torque. and both cars are said to weigh within 10 lbs or so of each other. so not sure either will walk eachother. probably just a dead even race. but depending on who gets the jump first.....who knows.....

Because with the slightest wheel spin detected, your computer will pull timing and/or fuel, causing you to run more slowly than if you got a little wheel spin and kept going...

Re: Whats Faster?

f the volvo drivers it a bad drive like most are in volvos you could more than likely take him from a stop but from a roll I figure the turbo will kick in and your gonna get to see some tail lights.

Those T5's are a good sounding motor. A buddy of mine has an exhaust on his and it has a nice growl.

Hey, I think everyone here knows I love Mustangs. But Volvo's are tanks, the new ones look nice, and I cant help it if I like the sound a Turbo I-5 makes.

The t5 S40 Volvo vs 3.8 Stang; the Volvo is faster at 140 top end. If you're asking who is quicker to 60; both cars are close together from the factory so it depends on driver skill, who has mods, and who has the disadvantage of launcing with a full tank of gas.
