The top speed of a 1988 mustang gt is around 140-155 mph, where as the top speed of a 03 Z is somewhere around 156mph. It looks like you're gonna put in some NOS, Dual Exhaust should help with the power. Don't know if an automatic is going to give you an advantage over the possibility of the Z having a stick. You can do it man! Good luck!

I had a similar race. My wife had a 04 350z and I raced her with my 1988 5.0lx. The 5.0 had gt40 heads, stock cam, ported stock intake and exhaust.
I let her start in front of me and went around the 350z and walked it pretty easy.
Stock the 350z is faster car, but the 5.0 with minimal mods can beat it.

da 350 will prolly have better acceleration bein that u went wit 410 gears. but on da top end he aint ready for it.and besides a sensor wud prolly go out on dat 350z before he finishes an he'll be takin it to the tech center for a diagnosis.dats da best thing about ur car. it dont have all the electronics as his car which wud make it da better car cause electronics are not reliable. i want the engine to run not the comp to run the engine tellin it how much air,gas, and spark to throw.this all used to be relied on by a carb and its vacuum ant the distributors an coils ability to produce spark.at least under ur hood the air intake manifold aint made of plastic along with everything else like newer cars,

yes but if you want the top end speed to beat the nissan you need to get a little higher gear ratio like a 3.55 or 3.73 to increase that top speed. if just drag racing you can wax his *** just the way it is if you can handle the car.

Hi
this is a no contest for the nissan as it has modern technology.
your old lump is just that an old lump of an engine typical ford no idea about anything to do with automotive engineering.
just made for a big old body which rolls all over the place and is just a typical piece of junk.
so you need the nitrous oxide to compete CHEAT. as it will not do it without and even then it could not compete on a level playing field. "tin and board ford "
well if you will take a sledge hammer to crack a walnut. then anything is possible but as usual you yanks just can't except you can be beaten, by a car where technology is the real answer even theCobraa was originally one of our car designed and you had to shown how to use that old engine in the AC COBRA. yes shelby did breath more life into it but only after he had been shown how by us brits.
