    For starters unless it's a stroker motor they 98 didnt come with a 5.0


    Second how do you not have a downpipe? Do you mean you have a stock downpipe?

    What mods are on the Mustang?

    Mustangs can be like a box of chocolates. It could be turd filled or a midget could hop out and kick you in the hoo hoo dilly cha cha. All depends on the mods.

    That gen mustang run a 4.6L motor and if not boosted was typically nothing special and certainly not a match for a stage2 wrx.
    Stock they tend to be low 15's @ 94
    Bolt ons get them mid 14's @ 97

    The Cobra's form that gen are a different story though. Look exactly the same but run 13's stock and will hit 12's with tires and simple bolt on's.

    My friends 97' GT with exhaust, header, and intake used to have trouble pulling away from my modded n/a GSR

    Just to beat it in a little more, it is a 4.6L unless the dude di an engine swap. The 97-98 GTs I think were pretty weak and not very fast at all. You should not have a problem with him. But if he has a built motor and is using FI, you probably have no chance at all.

    had this random guy in an SUV roll up to me and my friends this weekend at a gas station.

    random guy: "Hey, who owns that mustang!!"
    my friend: " I do"
    random guy: "I have a mustang with a litte something done to it, lets race!"
    me: "say, for money"
    my friend: "For Money"
    random guy: "Ok, 5 grand"

    so about 10 cars roll out to this guys house. Oh i forgot to mention that my friends mustang has a procharger on it and runs in the 12s. We get there and he has a stock GT on dubs. What a waste of time. They didnt race because my friend didnt have 5 grand in his pocket.

    i really think you can beat a Mustang from a dig as long as he isn't spraying. And if he starts to move up on you just put on the 4-ways and hit the breaks.

    Are you running stage 2 witha stock downpipe? That ain't good-- if the previous owner was driving the car like that you might want to get it looked at...
