Default 5.0 vs c5z

Ok here we go again,

So this race emerged out of the below thread in smack down, the topic at hand was basically 5.0's being superior to 03/04 COBRAS....

http://www.svtperformance.com/forums...-nice-but.html

It was a smackdown thread so obviously everyone was acting like clowns for the most part including myself. Im sure everybody got hella laughts out that ordeal as did I. REMEMBER, ALL IN GOOD FUN! :beer:

I stated that i was willing to race bolton 5.0s as i know that my car with intake and full exhaust has about the same performance as a properly set up and running pulley cobra, thats where FLYNZ came in.

He stated that he would give it a shot. We both met up, he asked for a 40 and asked to honk and i obliged. We did 3 runs on the highway. 1st run was 40-135, 2nd run was 40-125 and the 3rd was 40-120ish.
He also asked for a 30 roll but i declined as i knew id blow my tires off spinning and stay there sitting still.

My mods as always were intake and full exhaust.

5.0 (factory 3.73s) mods were boltons.

Enjoy

Good runs and good kill




Your exhaust sounds good, but I think I might of told you that before.

Well it was hard to tell,

On the 1st run, we had an even start and we went to about 135, to me it looked like 3 or so cars. And on the 2nd and 3rd runs he was getting a slight jump and we only went to about 125ish, to me it looked like 2 or so cars.

I wish i could have gotten better video and had a straighter road so that we could have taken it to 145 but oh well....

Good driving on both parts from what I could tell... Good runs.

He liked getting that hit didn't he.

Only to stop the pull and put two on him.

The 5.0 guy asked me not to state or comment on that for "warranty" purposes. So you do the math...

Its has happened to a few people. They do have some people on teh ford forums that follow when some one post they have an issue with there car. It burned a few people listing mods and stuff then issues came up and it led back to them having mods and no warranty.
