gosh...my cockyness from beating other high hp cars such as the VR4, RX-7, 300zx, MKIII's, and many ricers had my head up my ass and not looking at really big hints to not race this 5.0 .....alright so im on interstate 680 when a 5.0(dahh 5.0 stang clue 1) comes up to me at about 54mph, i can hear his engine revvin really loud(clue 2) and im bein cocky and say to myself, " its just a domestic" and i rev up too...we waited about 7 seconds and then we took off...with in a matter of seconds he's about 3 car spaces in front of me and gone...this made me think about racing domestics and how i think about them...yes...i know i will be called a dumbass by others that read this thread :(

Umm, go single? Spray it? You still won't beat them all but it'll be a much closer race when and if you lose ;)

Just enjoy your car the way it is. Losing a race is not the end of the world...and it's not the the wild ol' west. Older 5.0L Stangs are so darn straightforward to make fast that most other EFI cars run into the same problem when gunning it against a street savvy 5.0 owner. There are true street 8-second turbo Stangs lurking here and there.

Bottom-line: In the hands of a real speed addict, a domestic can be the most menacing straight-line ride out there.

hey the BOV makes all the ricers shut up ^_^
umm... no

when people ask what you've done to your car, and you just say "a bov"... its not considered a real mod, unless you make higher boost, which i assume you're not making... go get some performance mods such as bpu ;)

The general rule about 5.0s is if it looks really pretty, its slow........if its like 80 colors of primer and looks like shit.....watch out, it runs 8s :D
And conversely, if the older EFI Stang has rear deck louvers, 15/16 inch wheels sticking laterally outward, and has overextended pipes rattling against the rear valence (GT model), then it's feeding time for the ricers!
