I pulled up next to an 02 Cobra convertible the other day, pretty cool guy driving, we had a quick chat and he told me his Cobra was 500 to the wheels! I decided to give it a go and in true Subaru fashion had him to 40 lol, then he stopped spinning and left me for dead! Wow that thing was insane plus it sounded awesome!
Although I love the feeling of destroying GT mustangs, there are sooo many here in my city with over confident guys driving them! They all under estimate my family car! Last night for example, a guy in a modified 5.0 foxbody asked me to line it up so we did, just left him for dead and him and his friends faces were priceless!
Until FORD, the crappy american car company, starts making mustangs like the 03-04 cobra (which had independent rear suspension and a GREAT supercharged 4.6L V8) they will always be catering to retards who love solid rear axels and loud exhausts made by small v8. Chevy makes more hp with 2v/cylinder and OHV engines (technology of the 1920's).
On the other hand, there truly IS no replacement for displacement... which is why I would never trade my 2.5L for an EJ207 even if it has forged internals and makes more power. Also, no matter how fast our cars are up to 100 they always die up top... even a lowely GT mustang will tear an STI a new one from a Highway roll.

RayfieldsWRX - "You like the feel of torque steer? Interesting"
jd92677 - "I like the idea of mashing the gas and not knowing which way the car will go."
-02 WRX 13.8@96 stock SOLD
-04 SRT-4 626whp SOLD.
-04 STi 13.3@102 stock. SOLD
-04 SRT4 388whp DD SOLD
Yeah I stopped short of swapping turbos on my 20V because the torquesteer was getting annoying, every time I would launch the car would do it's best to crash into whatever was nearby and i figured another 100whp or so and it might succeed. At this point I can still embarass most WRXs, EVOs, Mini Coopers, and old stangs on the highway and that is good enough for me. The Rex will be my "fast" car now and I want to get forged internals and a 35R some day. 500awhp on a 2.75 stroker would be fun.
BTW I will always regret not getting an 03' SRT... I had the chance and went with the Beetle because It was a great deal and could be made fast quick... got it for 16k fully loaded 5spd leather stereo and only 10k miles.

Oh and yes im guilty of feeling a little smug in my car from time to time but there are only 3 WRX hatch's in the city, there must be thousands of mustangs! I dont know its just any kid with a loud V8 thinks its a spaceship.

Hey guys!(im new) just thought id say it's good too see there is a forum that dosn't comletely bash GT or Cobras completely. you guys all seem pretty cool and open minded! being an owner of 00 GT it's good to see good sports. Yes it's very true alot of people who drive around in mustangs think there tuff stuff but get it handed to them by WRX. ive never personally raced a wrx yet but i know and respect that there a fast freakin car, and prolly rip my car in 2. and i have alot of respect for Subaru, there a very well crafted car. It's amazing seeing the comment differances between honda/acura and forums like those adn here. seems like there is alot more respect here. anyway back on topic lol. yes 94-98 Mustangs had a ton of bark and no bite! 99-04 they did get quite a bit better,as they were lighter and had more HP, 260 at the flywheel but to the wheels ur really only looking at about 220-230. personally ive raced a 94, 5.0 stock vs my 00 GT(CAI,Exaust,Chip,short-throw) and just wasn't really a race. it really does depend on the driver in most situations too. anyway awsome forum guys Subaru's FTW!
Welcome boss. You'll notice that as a whole the Subaru community is one of the most educated in the car tuning world. I'd say that has a lot to do with the amount of respect that we give and get.
Have you thought of owning a Subaru?
