v6 vs gt?

So last night coming home from work an 02 gt kept trying to race me so i finally gave in at a stop light, we both take off at wot and my v6 was able to keep up with him... i find that a little strange and almost hard to believe.

+1...but that GT couldn't drive not to be mean at all, I raced a few friends in NE GTs in my 99 v6 auto, ones that knew how to drive, ate me alive, ones that did not, I kept up pretty well..even a fully bolted on 99-04 v6 would not take a GT

Yeah, at a track you wouldn't stand a chance with a good driver at the wheel. You'd need to drop a ton of cash to make it faster and use FI. He musta not know how to drive or it was a V6 with GT badges

I figured he must've been a poor driver, isnt it over a 100 hp difference between the two engines?

I believe it's 160 for the v6 and 260 for the GT, at the crank

Split port V6 - 190 at the crank, about 150-160 at the wheels

Ford rates at the crank. I believe its 15-20% loss from crank to wheels so multiply the numbers by .8 to get an estimate of rwhp/rwtq

That's what american muscle says for stock

I'm pretty sure I do it a LOT faster than that and I have an auto and only a cai exhaust and a tune....

1. No street race talk
2. That GT couldn't drive for ****. Even with full bolt ons a V6 won't be able to keep up in a straight line.

When a V6 races a V8 this is what happens
