5.0 vs 4.6

Idk if anyone has tried this but how would a stock '90 5.0 compare to a stock '00 4.6 on a drag strip?

I say it will be close the 1st 60ft, once the 00gt shifts into 3rd it will start pulling ahead. The 4.6 has a better trap time. That being the 5.0 is a coupe with a 5spd and 3.08 rear.

5.0 vs 4.6

Stock vs stock there is a Huge horsepower different. There is no competition, 4.6 will win. But a modded 5.0 will be able to make some decent power.

The newer auto is most likely going to be better than the older. Assuming both are stock.

The only time the 5.0 will win is if it a hci or stroker motor 4.6> 5.0 mod motors are just more expensive

They don't have to be aluminum heads though a gt-40 heads intake and cam with gears could compete against a pi 4.6

5.0 VS 4.6

I have two friends that have Stangs: 1) A 95 Stang 5.0 stick, very minimum Mods. 2) A 98 Stang stick, 4.6 with STEEDA Mods. Mine 07 4.6 Stang Auto, with A few well placed Mods. Both mine and the Steeda are far faster than the 95 5.0, but friend #2 told me that if #1 Put some big money into his, then he could smoke both of us, but he would have to put a Nice Lump of Money in it.

Both where automatic the 4.6 would win. The automatic stock fox is a 15 to mid 15 sec car. That being one with 2.73. If it has the 3.27 option ive seen them anywhere from 14.6 to 14.8

After putting big money into any car it should smoke a lot of things.

what is $1800-$2k? 95 Cobras will NEED more than 2k to shave almost 3 seconds off.

They don't call him "The JunkYard Dog" for nothing. This dude gets parts everyone else cringes over and makes them better then new. Not to mention his pieced together turbo kit from a cummins and the spray he exchanged for some work he did. Live and learn Borii, all on who you know and what you know.

Live and learn? This is not an accurate representation of the average modder. Your friend does that, most people don't. Not everyone, most no one is going to do some siding (for example) and get spray. Not everyone is going to pull a cummings from a truck and fab the piping then tune it themselves. Not everyone is going to "know" enough people to piece the car together that way.

So in the end, a 95 Cobra needs a heck of a lot more than 1800 to run 11s.

If we use your/his way of building as the only benchmark, then every 88 civic out there on a cummings pulling 9's is equally as awesome or better than any of our cars.

Its CUMMINS. And nobody ever said anything about the average modder, I was simply telling you how he does it and its working out very well for him. As well as letting everyone know that it IS possible to take a 14 second car and put it deep into the 11s with a few grand. And he's still a 5.0, just boosted and sprayed (now). You should meet him, maybe you'll appreciate it and learn something in the process. I take it you don't do your own work?

He hit the wall in Houston in October in "the beast" 95 gt with a NA 545 bbf. Sad day lol. Just glad he likes mustangs instead of camaros ha.

Stock for stock the PI 4.6L wins. NPI will lose. Start doing bolt ons and gears and the playing field between a 5.0 fox and a PI 4.6L is going to be pretty level, driver's race. If we are talking about a 93-95 Cobra the Cobra is going to beat the 4.6L. My 95 would consistently beat up on my roommate's 04 and both were bolt on cars at the time.

Remember its also about the whole car setup too. A car properly setup for the 1/4 making around 260whp is going to beat a 300whp car with stockish suspension and a set of AM wheels with Sumis.
