Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

Yes or no.

There seems to be some people that think this is not fast because their dick is too small and only V8 Mustangs can be fast.

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

that depends on what you consider fast. fast as in top speed fast, or fast as in getting to 100 first fast.

and you cant judge fast just by giving some hp/tq figures. cause those figures in something like a honda are gonna be very quick, but give those numbers in something like a v6 and its not gonna be as quick.

but i will say, if those numbers are in a v6, thats quite a good improvement and deserves applause, especially if its doing that naturally aspirated.

faster than a stock GT.

As stated above it's all in the interpretation of "Fast"

its all relative. compared to a Pro or Street Outlaw car, not so fast. Compared to a stock gt or fox body, pretty fast. Its not like you can just draw a line and say "ok, everything with more hp and more tq than this is fast, everything with less is slow"

I'd say no, but I don't think my car is all that fast. when I think fast, I think 10's in the 1320

I guess if you drive a Yugo then it's fast. But if you grew up on real cars then no.

That is fast. Under 300 hp and you ain't even allowed on the porch to watch the big dogs, lol.

Like has been said, it's all relative. I consider my car a good speed. It's fun to drive but I think of a fast car as something that will go sideways at any speed

For a V6 It's fast You need to take into consideration the power to weight ratio

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

While I don't think it makes for a fast car, it's definitely respectable and it would be a lot of fun beating a guy with a V8 and telling him you have a sixer

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

No, it isn't fast in your car. Like has been said above, it will be a very respectable jump in performance and you should notice a serious seat of the pants dyno gain (although you have been driving a V8, so that SOTP feel may not be there). They are certainly respectable numbers, but with the P:W ratio on these cars, it won't be "fast".

thats good power, people who are stupid and try to talk crap about the v6 are not worth your time or attention, we dont allow it on the boards i dont see it being any different in the real world. Dont let them know it bothers you and just ignore them...

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

i voted no .


for the reason that everyone considers fast at differant levels.

but for a mostly stock 6 cyl or 4 it would be quick. and good for 8.80 or so 1/8 mile

Fast is relative to what you are talking about. On factory showroom cars 260rwhp and 291rwtq in a car like the Mustang is faster than 80% or better of the cars and trucks out there so YES. If you throw it into modded cars then for mustangs it would still be faster than most modded V6's and would still be fast in terms of street performance. Now against a track car it would be considered decent but not fast.

Who cares what pencil dick morons say. Build a car for you

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

If i went from 170ish rwhp to 260 rwhp i would think it's fast. but after a month of being used to it, i would probably keep wanting more and more. that's when you gotta try to not get greedy and be happy with what you have, or else you'll never be pleased cuz there's always something out there that's better.

and on a side note i've seen plenty of oblivious femanine guys driving their 300rwhp plus cars and never even use the power or know it's there. i don't think a number should be what seperates the boys from the men.....if that were true then i'd be a boy all my life cuz i can't afford the 300rwhp to be a man even though i want those numbers. lol

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

Yeah, hp to weight ratios and such are needed here, I can't even answer your question.

If your engine was in a 6,000lb 1978 Bronco, no it would not be fast.

If your engine was in my car, 2800lb Mustang, then yes it would be

In your car,3300lb 99+, it will be above average. You could probably use words like "quick" or something eqivalent.

But what do I know, my car is just barely in the "peppy" range right now:no:

Well it depends on the car its in (I'm sure its' been said lol)

For example a 2005 F250 has about 320 WHP and 550 WTQ

and its quick for a truck but its not fast lol

Re: Poll: Is 260rwhp and 291rwtq fast?

fast is not determined by how much power you have, perhaps the question is better if you ask if that much power in a mustang is enough, or if that much power is enough to have in a car etc etc, not the word fast. that much power in a 10 ton car would not be very much... but in a .5 lb car it would be massive.

Brent, its not fast for you.. umm give the engine to me and i will say its fast..
on topic.. my mustang has umm.. its "fast looking" aka i dont have more then 150hp @ the wheels yet.. Vs my Crown Vic had more Hp but still felt about the same HP as my mustang did . mustang(v6) x Vic(v8)= about the same feel of HP when you drive them.. like corey said.. its your ride, if its "fast" in your eyes then have fun!
