v6 vs v8

Just going to start the war. Okay let's say we have a 1999 v8 mustang stock vs a 2004 v6 how would we build it to beat the v8. I would say cai,exhaust,tuner,Windstar intake,gears,subframe connector,weight loss,lower control arms and its a driver race

Re: v6 vs v8

It would take a few grand whether you boosted it or went NA. It can be done, is it worth it for that soul purpose, not really. You could juice the hell out of it for much cheaper though...

To do this properly, I would suggest doing the 4.2L stroker mod, followed by heads, cam and roller rockers from either Super Six Motorsports or Tom Morana Racing. Add to that the Windstar upper intake and the Steeda under drive pulley and true dual exhaust and you should be pretty darn close. If then one wanted to juice it..which I really don't see the need unless one is going to race the car then you should be good to go.....

Ok..but we should be parting our wisdom to new people in the V6 Mustang world, not leading them astray..by just telling him to juice it..what if he did it and damaged or worse blew his engine..would you be there to help him? Just saying we need to be responsible when we give advice is all I'm saying....

Sounds a-little ridiculous. Dude just do some basic mods and lose the race or just go get a V8.. Or spend 5 grand and turbo it.

96-98GTs are very slow stock, 99-04 GT's got a good boost but are still slow stock, you need to basically aim for a 14.0 quarter mile that should handle most stock 99-04 GT's

for a 99-04 v6 mustang thats going to be about 2 seconds off your time, which you can get the first second with all the bolt ons, gears, and a tune for the most part~ or rather close. the other second is either build the motor, power adder, or N02...

A guy around town got his 02 v6 in the 13's before adding a supercharger. He had a lot of weight reduction, gears, and every bolt on he could get his hands on. Can't remember his dyno numbers, but they were very respectable.
