WHo would win in a race? A 1994 V6 auto mustang with a cai, or a 2011 mazda3 2.0 5spd with rather light alloy wheels?

Those mustangs are slow and an auto makes it even worse, the mazda3 would win for sure unless an idiot was driving it.

According to wikipedia the 94 mustangs "V6 produced 145 hp (108 kW; 147 PS) at 4000 rpm and 215 lbft (292 Nm) of torque at 2500 rpm" now if it produced more hp at a higher rpm I don't know but thats what wiki lists. The Mazda3 is about 150hp and its a 2.0L, also according to wiki.

The ricer might have have the edge on paper because it is lighter, and has a manual, with about equal power. But I think the mustang would win because it will have better traction and more torque to get it moving, the mazda will be spinning its front wheels and have to slow down more if there is a corner involved, ad all of its power is at higher rpm. So it would actually be a close race. This all is assuming we have drivers who are good at driving either car.

Depends on some factors and missing info here, but you can use a car performance simulator to virtually setup this race with all your info, for example you can even setup drivers weight.

The Mustang V6 would win against the 2.0 Mazda 3i.

But if it was the Mazda 3s with the 2.3L engine, The Mazda would have won.
