2003 ford mustang 3.8 v6 will lose to what year v6 camaro?

My brother has a 2003 ford mustang v6 3.8 liter and I'm about to get my first car. I want a camaro or a firebird. It has to be a v6. What car will beat it?

It'll lose to a 2010 V6 Camaro. But otherwise. It'll be a tough race for a V6 F-Body. The 3.4L V6 cars will lose to a split port V6 Mustang. The 3.8L cars match up pretty evenly, it's a driver's race in that scenario.

If you get a 3.8L V6 Camaro/Firebird, you'll have about a 50/50 chance of beating him provided both cars are have the same transmission type and both drivers are of equal skill.

well first off a v-6 mustang is a waste of a good car, and so is a v-6 camaro and firebird Im not sure which will beat which as far as speed goes but your camaro or firebird will fall apart as the good ole mustang is driving right by you

In 1980, a lighter, more economical 3.8-liter (229-cid) V6 rated at 115-hp replaced the old familiar 250-cid I-6 as the standard engine. The new v6 Camaros now come with 200hp stock.
The 2008-09 v6 Mustangs have 210 HP. In 2003, they were rated at 190 HP.
Of course, horsepower ratings are only one specification, curb weight of a 2003 Mustang was 3000 lbs. The new Camaro's curb weight is 3700 lbs. The earlier models were approximately 3300 lbs.
All in all, I'd say that it's going to be a toss up. The first person to start adding performance mods will get the advantage.

The 98+ v6 camaros have 200hp while the 2003 v6 mustangs have slightly more. It would likely be a very close race either way.

The 2009 v6 camaros have 300hp and would easily beat a 2003 v6 mustang, however they cost around $30k+
