V6 stock mustang vs. 4-cylinder eclipse?

i have a 2002 v6 mustang and my friend has a 2001 4-cylinder eclipse and we always argue about who's car is faster. my mustang has dual exhaust but it's not true dual exhaust. besides that they're both stock. he SAYS he got his car up to 130 mph. my speedometer only goes up to 120 mph but i hit 120 and i think i still accelerated after that. has anyone ever raced these two cars or seen them raced? i don't really want to race because if we got caught it wouldn't even matter who's car is faster because we wouldn't be able to drive at all. does anyone have that year eclipse? and if you do, do you know how fast it tops out at? please help!!

gas engines just keep going faster till they blow up. they don't have a rev limit. so i would say the mustang. but it also depends on what kinda gears you got

i had a 97 eclipse convertible with the 2.4 engine. on the way to atlantic city back in 2002, i had it past 140, keeping up with my friend's 1994 v-8 mustang. although he probably could have given it more and gained ground. i don't think that my car had much more to it. the sad part was we did this through a speed trap, luckily didn't get caught though. i highly recommend that no one does this, as it is VERY dangerous.

I would say the V6 is faster. The best wat to answer your question would be for you both to head down to your local drag strip.
