    05' Mustang GT vs. 05' STi

    Im a newb, and will soon be getting an STi within a week. I was previously looking into getting Mustang GT, but I was hoping it would have been a little faster. I was wondering from yalls perspective, how a Mustang GT would compare against an STi from a straight roll from 20mph - 140mph. Not saying at all that this will happen. I am just trying to get a rough estimate as to where the strongest powerbands come from each car. Thank you.
    -John

    It's going to be a very good race. I would like to see that race. The STi is definately a faster car in the 1/4 mile, but from a roll its going to be very close.

    Actually, changing the exhaust really does nothing with these cars. It is mostly a sound thing... a catless X-pipe on the other hand...

    The biggest instant bolt on HP increase, (besides a supercharger!) would be to add a CAI AND computer tune. The car is so sensitive to changes that EM is not just desired, it is required, (a CAI will get you a CEL without it). The computer tune will also get rid of that annoying throttle lag.

    I didn't really notice any difference with the pulleys...

    If you really wanted the faster car, you should have gotten an 03-04 SVT Cobra. they will put both the 05 GT and STi to shame in a straight line. Especially from a roll.

    FWIW, my Stage 2 Legacy easily pulled on a 05 GT from around a 60 MPH start. It wasn't even close.

    I think a basic bolt-on (pulley, intake, catback, tune) Cobra will hang just fine if not kill that whippled GT. I have the mods listed and put down 466/473 at the wheels with just $1500 in mods. I don't know how much the whipple will give the GT, but you can always slap a whipple onto a Cobra (a lot easier task than a GT) and you will have over 600 rwhp, with a safe tune. Bang for the Buck, the Cobra just cant be beat

    As for the Cobra R, sweet car definately, but they are way too rare to be driving around daily. I would love to have one in the garage one day, or for track racing, that would be the shiza.
