    yes, but you just made a common misconception yourself by assuming that most large V8's are alike. Your vette is able to average mid-high 20's with highway MPG's, but that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the car that was originally brought up... A Ford GT, which averages about 15mpg on a good day.

    What you said is true, and I know there are some fast SUbies, I had an STi, my buddy has a 400 awhp STi and a few other friends have 300+ awhp WRXs. I was just reffering to general ignorance in the original post. Read his post, he is acting like schmuck and seems like the typical. "imports rulle all" meat head that thinks they can whoop Stangs, LS1s and anything else American like it is no thing. There is no way a stage II will hang with a built and blown stang, yet he is disgusted that he lost to a Ford. Believe me, I know of plenty of fast subies.

    Hmmm ... a forced induction four cylinder engine vs. a forced induction eight cylinder engine.

    Just what were you expecting?

    That's common misconception... people think that since I have a big v8 my gas mileage sux. The other day I was talking with this guy and his civic... and he was like well I still get 30mpg.

    This was already pointed out but what the heck does your V8 with a completely different car bolted to it (i.e. not a Ford GT) have to do with what he said? In the case of the Ford GT, no, it isn't a fuel efficient V8-equipped car. Also, your fuel efficiency has a lot to do with your gearing. Out of curiosity, how many RPMs are you turning at say 75mph on the highway?

    Just for fun...

    16 MPG combined is actually really good considering the massive amount of car crushing horsepower that the FordGT is throwing down..

    id rock it!
    they call STi's STDs because everyone is getting them.

    Don't forget the massive amount of tourque too! lol

    HOnestly, the Ford GT should never be mentioned in the same post as any of these cars. It is just a completely badass machine, that costs a lot of money.

    Your 18g WRX is faster than your KB Cobra? That is very surprising.

    Tommy's 18g WRX put down like 330 whp or so, I would expect that KB to be putting down at least 580 to the wheels on a conservative tune.

    i did not think that is sound right, but i have better times with the wrx, yes the kb is pushing much more and feels so much faster, i guess it is a v8 thing. it is so hard to tell you what car i like the most, but i have a built block on the wrx. the last time it was dyno was with the vf34 and i have over 300awhp. dont ask how lol that happend with a vf34 lol i guess it was a great tune and race gass helped, i will be getting the crs dynoed again sometime this month and i will post some charts up for you!
    04 wrx
    and the kb cobra!

    Actually, it's the Ford and all other RWD muscle car guys that have a lot to learn, like there is more to driving than straight-line performance and only being able to drive in IDEAL conditions. Can't wait to see all the mustangs lining up to race me in tonight's blizzard!!!
