GT 5.0 vs. stock Corvette

Here's The question. I have a 2011 Mustang GT 5.0. It has a steady cold air intake exhaust in SCT tuner with 93 Race program. Can it be a stock 2008 Corvette. My buddy really wants to race me but I do not want to ruin the Mustangs reputation of being a badass should I do it or not. he says he can smoke me

Just found online and the specs for a vette z51 is 12.8 in the 1/4 mile and a 4.5 0-60, the 2013 5.0 does a 12.7 and 4.3 0-60.
It is still a close race so bring your A game for sure!!!!

You can't throw a dead cat in most parts of the U.S. without hitting a local dragstrip/racetrack where you can SAFELY have your grudge match on a Friday or Saturday night.

See, I managed to bring the 'dead cat' and 'safety' subjects back around in an on-topic AND informative manner!

Yay, Me!

Well I assume you're talking about the base vette. If he's any good at all he'll walk you without much problem. Those vettes are pretty damn light and push more power and have much better tires. Numbers give you a starting point but don't tell you everything. Race him anyways... On the track of course. Just have a good time, who cares if he wins, he still has a Chevy and a small penis lol

It seems like most people are talking about a stock GT. True you are a couple years old, but you have some nice mods on it. Driver aside, it SEEMS clearly you. If he is a bit better, you still have a shot, and he is 4-5 years old.

its not really a good comparison but will put a vette in its place and just for them to come back well race the zr1 against it lol. Then we have a 5.8 still less displacement and walk it by a car lol. 5.0 vs camaro then 5.0 vs vette then 5.8 vs zr1 or boost the 5.0 and then race the zr1. I can just say ford did a very good job on the new motor i mean old design but finally made it happen.

Just spray on him and tell him its stock and leave him scratching his head lol.

Come on guys,...lets get real. Stock 5.0 vs stock z06, vette wins hands down. I'm actually contemplating buying a new z06,...and have the 5.0 as a dd.

Maybe.

If one adds the other factors of this thread-age difference, mods, tuning- then getting real means it is more likely the 5.0 will win than the chevy.

A few posts ago the stats were posted stock vs stock, with a .2 second quarter mile difference, I believe. Before aging, mods, and tuning.

If you were able to beat him, he needs a few driving lessons. LS3 Corvettes run high 11s/low 12s in the mid-high teens with the right drivers. Your car on any given Sunday *should* be a couple/few tenths behind by the end of the 1/4 mile. And it only gets worse from there. Should be a really good race with an LS2 Corvette though. But of course anything can happen in a race, so enjoy your victory. Just don't think it will happen every time. Those LS3 Corvettes are nothing to be taken lightly.

I can compensate. Once my son gets old enough for the front seat, i am getting a vette. Don't even need the grand sport. Amazing car. Will keep the accord for when the dog needs to go for the ride with us

Base Corvette for lack of manliness? Everybody hates it so much on our Mustang forums and it is superior than the 5.0 in every way stock for stock and mod for mod in n/a fashion.

More power? Check.

Lighter? Check.

Turns better? Super check.

Why can't we be CAR fans instead of some idiotic fanatical loyalty to a car when there is always a better one out there.
