My car is a '13 5.0 with a BAMA 91 Race Tune and a roush axle back, with a hurst short throw shifter.

2013 5.0 Mods -
Roush Axle back
BAMA 91 Race Tune
Hurst Short throw

6.0 GTO Mods -
Cams
Full bolt ons
Possibly a tune for the cams? I would think he'd need a tune for cams..?
And apparently that's all he has done..

So who should take the win?
Thanks for any input
This GTO should be a full second faster than you at the very least. So it shouldn't even be close. With traction they will pull similar times to a 5.0. I've personally driven a 100% stock GTO 6 speed to a 12.867 @ 109.88 with a 1.998 60' a few years back in a warm summer. Not Hot.

This same GTO now runs 121 MPH with 2.0 60s at 11.6 on street tires with cams, exhaust and tune.

If I get a BAMA 93 octane tune, will I still be able to run it on the 91 octane gas? And see a power increase from my 91 octane tune?

I have a 13 GT with only Roush axle backs and I went up against a 5.7 Modified GTO and stayed nose to nose with him. Not sure what mods he has but he did tell me that I was the only 13 Stang he had raced and that I was the only stock Stang that has kept up with him. Even though I am not sure if he was telling me the truth it did make me feel good I say race him and see.

There is a 50 HP difference right off the bat from a 5.7 to a 6.0. His "mystery" mods leave such a gap for accuracy, know what I mean?

Stock vs STock its a drivers race with a 6.0. Everything changes when either car is modded.

OPs power mod being the tune is all he has, as an axleback is negligible.

No if you have a 93 tune you have to run 93 or you risk blowing your engine

I believe are cars have knock sensors that adjust accordingly to the octane we use, tune or no tune.

That is true they do but to a point if you purposely get a 93 octane tune and them only run 91 octane in it it is not safe and you run the risk of running lean and blowing the engine....if all he has is 91 then run a 91 tune why take the risk plus bama is not going to warranty a car that was running a 93 tune but only 91 octane it's just not smart

The sensor is for temporary advancement or retarding of timing on a scale. Over long term abuse it can cause severe damage. CAN. Not will.

Please note that a tune MAY override this feature. Something to look into.
