So is the best idea just to use nitrious for the time being and go to a 5.0 when I have the cash. It's funny the kits that make these cars fast are over $5000 but to replace the whole engine it's half that. I already have my care doing 0-60 in less than 5 secs and I fairly happy with the power personally I feel like a mid 500 horsepower car is quite perfect for having a lot of fun. Now days people want as much power a possible and that's just crazy to me I'm not super impressed with how fast your car goes in a straight line I'm More into how fast you can go at the track.

I went to Las Vegas and raced at the track you could drive any car you wanted and the car I had the most fun in was the 6 cylinder twin turbo GTR. I'm wishing now I just looked harder for a car and maybe bought the GT but with my driving record I don't think I could afford it. Insurance wise.

If your reason to turbo your mustang is based on the GTR I feel like you will be sorely disappointed even if you went with a 5.0.
The GTR is in supercar territory and is one of the best handling cars in the world. You are setting the bar pretty high on that one.
Speaking of - I would love to get into autocross. Is the 3.7 mustang relatively competitive? I feel like it very well could be if you are smart about mods and dont bump yourself out of a class.That is entirely dependent on the type of racing you do. There are potential classing advantages to NOT using the 5.0 in both time trial and American Iron. In TT, you start a full base class lower, and have a lower minimum weight to work with. In AI, you have a way lower minimum weight, or you can go forced induction, and still have a lower minimum weight, and a more capable car in the corners...
