Also, if you have ever read the book of mice and men , Steinbeck the author wanted to teach the powerful people of the 1930 society not too treat others poorly; because there not as good or powerful as you. Mainly because during his time upperclass people would treat the working class poorly, Just because they can and it makes them feel better. It's basically the same logic here "some" and I quote "some" of the 5.0 member will put the other engines down; basically just because they can, and it makes them feel superior.

I've read it...
Another way of putting it is the golden rule...
But as you said compare it to a Shelby 1000 and I bet they'd still say it's better...

(This is called the mustang curse lol) Just make sure and get a warranty if your worried about something going wrong it! But for shows the roush is hands down better you can't debate that. Reason why is again 5.0's are everywhere there a very common car ,because everyone likes them soo much ,but without putting some money into it it's just going to be a plain Jain 5.0. Also the rousch is obviously going to hold its value much better if you keep it for 5-10 years, compared to the 5.0. The roush won't be as good of a track car but let's be honest here, their both stupidly fast.

What my point is it's annoying how the 5.0 member love to pick on the lower class members (like the v6) but say the 1% comes along and says their car is better than a 5.0; all hell will break as the 5.0 guys try to convince them there 5.0 is better than anything they have... But whatever what do I know I only own a cheap 2003 v6 just how I feel; and its Just my .2 nothing more. Im not trying to start anything here it's just annoying getting those guys all over v6 section and saying how stupidly slow their are and theirs nothing they can do... Etc (but whatever I only own a cheap 2003 v6) it's basically nothing compared to these cars. Also I love the 5.0 it's a great car I just feel like "some" and I quote some; of the members feel faster than anything no matter what. Thanks for reading my basically worthless .2 lol.

That doesent matter, my point is that the "some" of the 5.0 guys love to put every ones else car down, and this thread is a small example of it. I quote you when you said "stop thinking your roush is the fastest thing alive".... Is that not basically what some of the 5.0 members are all about,they think it's the most amazing thing on the planet.. So much you could take any car on the world and compare it to the 5.0 and they will still find something to make "their" 5.0 seem better, or they make the lame excuse of well I can put x amount of dollars in and then I would win.. Well that's great but you could put x amount of dollars in another car too and still lose.

I see what you're saying. But personally I've never noticed that from 5.0 owners. I certainly wasn't like that when I had a 5.0

Do you think there is just a little bit of jealousy from 4.6 or v6 owners that make them feel that way? I could be way wrong, or just not observant enough.

That could be a possibility. This is coming from a 4.6 owner, I have absolutely no desire to own a coyote mustang. Honestly I like my car a lot more than any 5.0 I've seen/driven. My cars fast, handles great, sounds awesome, and looks absolutely stunning. I constantly have people complementing my car at gas stations, my shop, and car shows. Truth be told I'm looking for a second 4.6 mustang. I'm not a 4.6 junky, but my favorite newer mustangs have 4.6s in them. Would I put a coyote in my car given the chance, no. I see absolutely no reason to, there isn't anything wrong with my engine. Yes, the 5.0 can make more power, but I'm not racing so I don't really care. Plus I really hate how raspy a 5.0 sounds with a full exhaust upgrade, and not a fan of the 10-14 mustang body style.
Just my .02 as a 4.6 owner on the subject.

I've noticed it from some people on here and I'm like everyone else. I think my car is fast. Notice I said "I THINK" and that's all that matters is what we think about our own cars. Yeah, so what if this is better than that. Oh well, that's why you choose what you put into your car as far as
Mods go. You're not gonna mod
Your car how someone else thinks you should. It's not theirs. Yes you should take advice from people like I did because some are more
Knowledgable, but don't buy something just because they tell u to, pick what you think will suit you best. If you want a roush get a roush. If you want a Shelby then buy a Shelby. Get what u want not what joe blow says to buy.

It's on a lot of the lower member sections, v6 and older gt's. What bugs me is when member ask for help and they want to know what they should do next in their fun scheme of modding. And some 5.0 member will come along and tell them basically everything they do on their car is pretty worthless because they could never beat a coyote, and that bugs me because there comment was completely worthless when the person asking was never comparing. Also people just comment sell it and buy a coyote and while this may be a better choice you have to stop and think; If they could buy a better model in the first place they probobly would. Or I've seen this most commonly When members with a v6, or older gt who have a lot of pride in their car and they love it and are showing it to people on here . someone with a 5.0 feels like their compelled to say how much better their 5.0 is and will tell them how slow they ,and how terrible their car is to a 5.0. And to me that's just degrading especially when there are lower class members who have slower cars and are proud of their cars. To me someone who has it better financially will come and basically rub their 5.0 in their face; because their vehicle is so much better. And how there is nothing that they could do to make it as good as a 5.0. (And that may be true) but to me "some" 5.0 members do a great job of rubbing that in and making members feel bad.

And Ya I think their obviously is jealousy from the not as lucky members that's just obvious. But no I just hate seeing other members being put down because their not on the 5.0 train; for financial issues mainly. But Honestly I wouldn't trade my little 2003 v6 for a 5.0 and that's because I love my car so much and have a lot of pride/work in it; also it fits me well I don't need/can't handle that much power let alone while the car is in stock form.(I don't street race or race at a strip or track) so my car is enough for me easily. And what I'm
Saying here isn't to not have pride, in the 5.0's, their about the best mustang we all know that! Just don't let that pride destroy the pride of others members who are not as fortunate as you. (Unless their being complete retards and trying to compete with you then it's a whole different ball field)

Exactly. Not everyone wants to have the best and fastest of everything. Some people love their car that they made their own in their own way. Who gives a crap if it isn't as good as what the other guy has. I have a 5.0. But it's no better than your car. They're all mustangs and this is a forum for all mustangs. Not 5.0s.

Jack and I used to be friends. I have about twelve years of Nascar Crew Member licenses framed that Jack got from me from around 1990 until 2001 when I developed serious heart problems. I still have a closet full of Roush Racing sweaters, jackets and shirts that he would bring you the track. I have a rubber made tub with probably 2000 pretty good pictures that I took in the garage and pit area.

All I can say is WOW ...are these forums supposed to be to help each other with advice. My first post to read was of three guys arguing about whose car is better and they are all mustangs!!! Have a little class. All car enthusiasts have a love for cars who cares if mine is faster than yours , there is ALWAYS a faster car out there...
Chill out car dudes...

Very true, that double edged sword and what not...
I'd get a 11 GT/CS grabber blue manual, if I could find one, they look great, for a 10 and up...

Back to what I said " Have you ever heard of dragstrips and time slips ", I am not around too many 5.0 owners discussing the superiority of their cars over 4.6 or the V6 but one thing I have noticed about most anyone with a scary fast car, they are scared of them. I have a friend with a 4,000 mile 07 GT 500. When he drives it no matter how clear the road he gets on it hard, for all of 3 seconds and then completely off the accelerator and he will look at you with a big grin and say "Did you feel that spin"? In May at Paradise Dragstrip in Calhoun, Ga. Which when it was built 53 yrs. ago as a 1/4 mile track and Mr. Timms the builder and owner still in the year of their 50TH Anniversary passed away in March I think but his Wife and two sons one or two Daughters, Grandchildren, Nieces and Nephews still operate and most of them own homes on the highway in front of the strip all say it will always remain a dragstrip. Anyway in May and three times per year they have three Show N Go weekends with two days of dragracing with Sat. Just being a test and tune all day and bracket racing on Sundays, two days of car shows and about 1/2 mile of a parts meet with cars on trailers and parts galore. I will be there with my 04 GT which I or my Brother and my friend just completed Phase one of two and two will be a supercharger and I have begged my friend to carry his Shelby and another friend his 5.0 but they won't go and I won't say all but most with those kind of cars don't carry them to the strip. Maybe a carshow if it has a Shelby Mustang class! No matter how fast they are if they are afraid of thrashing it occasionally it in essence becomes a Tongue Fast.
I have done as much suspension and brake work on my GT as I have horsepower mods. I have Parkinson's Desease and Rheumatoid Arthritis and I spent a little over two years in a wheelchair as a result of three strokes to which my Doctors told my Wife I would never walk or care for myself again. I walk very slowly and have a tremendous amount of pain and one day I will probably be back in a wheelchair permanently or worse but until then " Where Do I Register "?
In May I am entered in my first roadrace on a new two mile road course in North Georgia, no I change that it is on April 7, and it will be one 20 min. Period on the track with a pace car and then a 20 min. session with a track observer then later 20 min. Back on with all novice drivers like myself and 20 with an observer and you get the idea. All told there will be five 20 min., sessions and I am told no one will try to embarrass you or pressure you to go faster than you feel comfortable. On May 29TH I thinkmI will run on a 1/2 standing start mile on a 1 1/2 mile beautiful airport runway in the north east Ga. Mountains then back there in Sept. Then dragracing at the Show N Go in May and two other times. Then something I have really been looking forward to doing Auto Cross back with the SCCA on the Parking lot at Turner Field where the Atlanta Braves play at home and there will be other locations throughout the year for open track events and Auto Cross. I have owned some really fast cars over the years but I can believe how fast the 4.6 is with just bolt ons and with it weighing around 700 or 800 lbs. less than a Shelby once the supercharger is on I really believe it will give one a race.
Moral of the story, no matter how fast in a car magazine driven by others, if you don't try it yourself it's not worth the $5.99 the car mag cost and five different magazines can test the same car and they all get different results.
Good Morning Everyone

Coyotes are called "5.Bro" around here for a reason... That said, there are plenty of ppl who have them who are cool as hell but there are also enough jackasses. Kind of like with any fast car...


Also, please keep the thread civil. Name calling on the internet is about as useful as telling Oprah to lose weight.
