I'm pretty sure the stage two has the looks and suspension upgrade so all youll need to keep up with the Gt500 and vette is a supercharger!

Stage 2 is just looks and suspension. Stage 3 is the supercharger. Which is what you'll want eventually to get a good amount of horsepower.

basically you are buying a Mustang GT .... it wont keep up with a GT500 anywhere NEAR stock, will take 5-6k investing to keep up with a GT500. I would save up and get a GT500 if thats your goal (to keep up with a z06) as a GT will cost way to much to do it.

If you purchased the Stage 3 Saleen its still a GT engine and it wont take the amount of hp/tq needed to keep up with a GT500 either... the limit of the Stage 3 is about where a GT500 starts.
