what does it take to outrun a GT?

What's the easiest way to out run a new edge GT with a 2000 v6?

gears, tlok, tune, a hand full of bolt ons...and you'll stay on his butt...to beat it you'll have to take it to a built N/A setup or boost

Its funny how I just made a thread asking how to outrun a Cobra with a Gt and your asking how to outrun a Gt with a V6 lol

But anyways, you would need a hand full of bolt-ons and you would have to be able to actually drive. Also try gears.
Is you car auto or stick?

Re: what does it take to outrun a GT?

one of the reason i hate these types of questions though...v6's want to outrun stock GTs...why?

if you want to out run anything go for a modded GT lol....why build a v6 if you're not reaching a bit higher

Well i always think that no matter what you do there will always be a car faster. But what you can do is be unique and having some speed makes a car more to drive

I think he's looking for something reasonable not completely out of his budget.

To beat a GT? If there was such a thing we'd all have it. The world would know. Spend the cash on amps & subs & shake him out of the way.

I drive stick, I think autos are the most boring things on the planet. I turned down gts because some were auto.

Here is a full street car vert that would:


(buy full street car I mean 15" subs in the trunk and not on slicks/skinnies)

Hell there are 4 cyl honda crx's that will keep up with them anything is possible.

Re: what does it take to outrun a GT?

Remove a **** ton of weight, and do your bolt ons and waste a whole bunch of ****ing time and money.

Ive spent a **** ton on a N/A V6 and im hardly out running the stock new edge GT's
Now I am an auto w/ only a 2.15 60' so when my stall comes in in about a week ill **** them in the ***. Then we'll work on bolt on's, and 3v's

So you'd but a cobra thats already gonna out run the GT, probably would even if it was missing.

and you would take out a blown 4.6 and put a blown 429 into it just to beat the GT ....

By the time oyu spent all that time and money Id be running laps around you in a blown V6 ...

Your looking at a couple grand, there is no cheap way to do it. For the money and work one would think it better to drop in a rebuilt 4.6 drivetrain. I would do this myself, but its easier just to buy a GT. I don't believe anyone that says they don't want a v8 and just want to be different. The very few people that are not saying they want to stay with a six because of an empty wallet go with boost and don't skimp on parts, or they go buy a v8.

I like my six, but its not very fast and it doesn't have that odd firing music. Simple solution I'm looking for a GT!

I like buildingmy 6 and having something different. Its My DD.

I also have a 94 V6 that I need to put the tranny back into. From their I can keep and drive, sell, or gut and make a drag car with.

I also have a 67 Mustang me and my dad slowly rebuild. So just cause I dont have that V8 now dont mean ****.

And if its that big of a deal. Hint Hint, Go buy you a roller of some sort, gut the mofo, buy a 5.0 and slowly build it up. Put it on a trailer. Go to track Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Question for ya!.. How fast is your 6 and how much cash did it cost ya to get there?.. Reason I ask is due to the fact that the original poster said that they did not want to spend alot of cash!..

If you want something that is unique then build a V6!.. But if you want some thing that is "cheap" to go fast than a V8 is best!..

well like ive said, buy a roller body and find a 5.0 off craigslist. build it accordingly.

stock auto I run low 9's and low 14's

To much

I could be in low 8s and 12s with a turbo on a stock engine for the same amount or less.

Either way its not cheap man ... Im slow as **** at that. I built this my way though.

Go guy your V8 ... get a 4.6 2v GT and run slower then me. Or a stock 5.0 OHV and run slower then me

You have to put money in no matter what you do.

But if you spend 700-1000 in a cam set up for a V6 vs a 302 V8 the cam will gain much more granted.
Its all about what you want.
If you really want to be the fastest at the track, then yes get your V8 and go spend 50,000$ or so and you might be the fastest.

About $1,200 and I run low 14s in the quarter!.. I have a '04 GT an auto tranny and stock gears!.. Granted my numbers are not impressive but it will cost you alot more to get to that point in a V6!.. And low 14s is what you will need to get if you want to out run a stock GT of the same year!..

Re: what does it take to outrun a GT?

if you wanna go fast somewhat cheap you build an LSx or a 302 based car...

Not a v6 not a 2v gt

Re: what does it take to outrun a GT?

forced induction is the best route to go. building a 4.2 will cost about the same as a used procharger kit. 4.2 will beat gt's, procharger will do it better. otherwise, you're not going to beat a gt if you dont wanna spend much money.

not necessarily but it would be for the better if you get a supercharger. if you go turbo, you will have a single dump out of the turbo and you can keep it single or Y it off and run duals.
