which mods to beat a bullit

Okay so I have a friend that has a stock 2003 Bullitt and I have a 2000 gt what mods would I need to beat his? His is stock as well but I'm adding and exhaust to mine later this week.

Soccerluvr4 is just getting started.
CAI, Throttle Body, Upper Intake Plenum and UDPs should do you good. And definetly gears.

In the first, there is no such thing as a 2003 Bullitt--only 2001 and 2008 through IDK. If it is a 2001 Bullitt the only things you would need to blow it off would be an aftermarket 70 mm TB and plenum, and a decent tune.

The only advantage the 2001 Bullitt had had over the GT was a slightly better intake arrangement that pumped the mid-range up a bit, and pushed the peak HP from 260 to 265...

Yup. Nothing really that special about them. Mainly the name

A CAI, 70mm or 75mm TB with matching plenum and a tune is all you'll need!..

It would be a nice starting point to look the buffoon in the face and tell him there is "no such thing as a 2003 Bullitt!". Here is the Red Book info for the '94 through '04 Mustangs--you will see that the Bullitt model was only produced in 2001...

Here's a comparison that they have had for years on mach1registry.com at the bottom of the Specs page.

Attachment 81361
^I suspect the slightly higher HP and what cliffyk mentioned above, as well as the subframe connectors would help it trolley down the drag strip a little faster. Maybe the ~3/4" drop with stiffer springs helped some too, though practically everyone has their Mustang lowered these days.

The bullit only had 5 more horsepower than the regular Gt, that being said just a CAI and exhaust would make you push more horsepower than him if he's just stock. It wouldn't take much, a CAI and a tune would beat him by a decent amount.

Bullitt has suspension upgrades too i'm pretty sure. Tokicos(sp?) and better springs. Those with the subframes probably keep it from lauching like a big sheet of cardboard.

Here is the exact breakdown of every Bullitt specific part. I'd say the best factory addition was the cobra brakes. Ford ended up rating the 01 Bullitt at 275hp. But I'd say mileage and care will play the biggest part in who wins, if his car is tired and you could beat him without any mods.

Depends on who knows their car best, isn't afraid to launch, and can do it the right way. I'd need several hands to count the number of better cars than mine i've run faster in a quarter because they either bog or spin the tires off.

:agree:.... with just CAI/exhaust and a tune you should be able to give him a run for his money

It's all about how you drive the car. I ran against a 2000 GT with a vortech and beat him because he couldn't drive his car. I have basic bolt ons.
