alright we have had a few runs now and i seem to always win by a car or so . my wife has a gxp with a custom pvc hai (3 inch), and a downpipe that goes back to the y. my car is a 2004 mustang gt vert, with a jlt cai, 410 gears, o/r x pipe, and catback, and short throw. the question is what do you guys think the out come will be after shes hp tuned with the 3 inch cutout...where going to be doing a few rolls with me in 2nd and her in 1st (because of my 410s)...also going to try a low 1st gear roll....so??

bro 2vs arnt that slow if you know how to drive them, this last time i raced her it was from 35-40 roll i was at the top of second, 410s really really wake up the stangs, and i have a sct tuner buts its just a bs email tune...when i get nittos ill be doing low 1st gear rolls or digs (right now 1st is useless on the stock tires, which are pretty bald lol)

it stinks thought beacuse a good roll for you guys in 1st puts me in second lol.

I ran a guy from a dig to about 100 in a 2V Mustang and lost 3 times in a row by about a car length each time. He said it was a bolt car with 4.10s and ran a 13.4 with drag radials.

05-18-2010, 09:04 PM
yea that sounds about right depending on what his actual bolt ons where...im anxious and excited, ill post a vid of us running with her just leaving it in drive lol..i kind of jumped on her because i heard the gxp start to downshift on the 2nd honk lol...also i didnt have the cai, or tuner yet and was running 87 octane...not to bad..she uses the tap shift now lol

I raced a 2v 99 Gt with 4.10's, slicks, headers, cai, pulleys, and exhaust. He got a 13.50@101 to my all stock 14.06@98.7. My best to date is a 13.98 all stock. I haven't gone with my new mods but I'm guessing with tuning I'd get a 13.5@105 with 2.0 60ft times. Maybe even a 13.2. With a tune your wife's, car should put down about 260ish fwhp.
It's pretty cool, to see that your wife, is willing to race.
What do you think of her car?

i got her into the gxp and started showing her pics and stats of the gxp, and i found one we went to see it she fell in love lol, i like the car alot to be honest i would have got one my self but figured ill get the mustang so we can have some ford vs gm battles lol....also i believe that mustang driver cant drive. more than a few people have gone high 12s on a similar set up...as a matter a fact the best ive seen with similar mods on slick was 12.6 @ 106

geight8you
05-18-2010, 09:31 PM
also this is a good comparison to show you how well 410s really help. the car/mustang in the middle lane is me mods at the time where 410s, xpipe, cat back, short throw, camera car is a mustang gt 2v with intake,tb,plenum,diablo tuner,exhaust,pullys, and stock gears, he is also a hard top....we went from 30-35 i was in 1s gear and he was in 2nd lol

My buddy at work has a 02 Stang, intake, x-pipe, exhaust, 4.10's and ran 13.1 @ 108 on a cold night. He averages 13.3-13.4 @ 103-104. We went from 30-100 and he pulled less than a carlength.

i let him win every time shhhhhhh....then he'll think his stang is fast and my car is slow and i can mod it some more ;)

lol. im sure you did. those 2vs are soft like bread.jk. next time make sure he doesnt jump on you. on a serious note im really not impressed by the 2v mustangs with gearing theyre better but still not good.

Small motor with only 2 valves, and if it wasn't for the mad.. mad.. aftermarket support, then they would all still be runing like ass. The 4V's and 3V's kick ass. Espically, the new 5.0!
Every once in a while I get to beat the 3V's and sometimes get beat.:cry:

yeh stock gearing sucks......he just got 4.10s....if i had a stang, thats the first mod i would get for sure. but i'm a gm girl, so that won't happen HA!

Get her some 3.29's and some 275/40/18" sticky tires to go with that tune:D
I'm sure you've got a nice car man, but keep in mind that you posted a vid of your Mustang beating a GXP/W-body. So of course we're on the deffensive!

05-18-2010, 11:44 PM
Lol I let off towards the end but I will agree it wasn't a steady Pull. But the very last time we ran I pulled a car or so and I kept pulling a little. So she says lol. Remember in the vid above I didn't have the intake or tuner yet. I really wish I could have got our most current last race on film we both took off at the same time but those 410s still went to work that and having 2 more mods lol

Just make sure you raise those shift points when you tune it.

i'm glad you know to buy REAL cars :D

same here BUT they didnt have 4.10's,, that is the difference in this case, the GXP's are poorly geared IMO

Actually, 2Vs are slow unless they've got gears, full bolt-ons, and/or a power-adder. Back when I owned LS1 Camaros, I abused several modded Mustangs on the street and at the track, some of them blown. And that was just with free mods, a lid, and a Magnaflow. The only ones that ever beat me had their combos dialed in, which many 'stang owners don't bother to do (not saying you're one of THEM!).

Because there are so many cheap mods for Mustangs, a lot of guys just throw shit on without thinking about their combo, and the cars often don't perform as well as you'd think.

Agreed. Full bolt on cars aren't a problem for me from a dig. The strongest ones, with the closest races have been 4.10 and higher cars. 4v cars love gear as well, but can get by with 3.73s because of the higher power output lol. Just don't catch a Cobra from a 3rd or 4th gear roll. :shudder:

I don't have a video of it, but I rolled up on a 2001 Cobra (N/A 4v M6), tag said "RLYFAST", 60 roll, put a car and a half on her. I shrugged my shoulders with my hands up like "What happened? A Monte Carlo? Really?" She flipped me the bird and fell back. lmao

05-19-2010, 04:05 PM
lol all i know is that i would love to run you if you where local....what year was that stang in the video, because it looked like a older body style pre new edge design, if so the gt version of that year only had 215 hp and the cobra made 305. all rated at the crank of course, but sadly enough 90% of mustang drivers cant drive worth a damn lol, i do believe i have the driver mod...the vid i posted on here earlier in the thread was an example, but 2vs compared to any lsX is garbage we all know this...but hey at least the new 2011 kicks but!

I agree with u there, worst vid ever. he deff jumped u, and u werent in 1st gear were u should have been from that mph roll. ur gxp and my regal need to be in 1st gear from 35 and under. our gearing isnt the best in the world. lol

05-23-2010, 06:28 PM
yo yo jorge whats up lol... and yes guys i need to do another run asap with my 2v and her gxp hopefully low 10 mph rolls, or even a dig and a 30-35 roll ( gxp will be in 1st and ill have to be in 2nd lol)...but i will say her car is moving out hard with the tune and open cutout...if im not carful with the go pedal it will roast 1st and shifting into 2nd lol...but even doing that it still feels like its hauling ass..ps im getting nittos very very very soon lol
