some stupid bastard keeps on revvin me up in his mustang, and its gettin real old. I dont even know him, and i just mind my own business driving, but if he ses me then it is a definate that he is going to rev me up. Its pissing me off and i just didnt understand why he was revving his shit up, because from what i understand is that they ARE absoulte pieces!

Not sure where you got that info, but if you can drive with a 98 gt with i/h/e you should be in the 13.40 to 13.80 range.

Find articles on that car the mention paul sveniki from Paul's High Performance. That's the only other car I've ever had besides my 1 honda is a mustang. I've owned probably 20 from 1985 models up to a 2003 cobra that I just sold. Fox bodies are my favorite. (1979-1993) Paul drove a 2003 stone stock mach 1 with the exception of his php shifter to ensure he hit 3rd gear and ran 13.20's. That guy can drive. He's ran Paul's High Performance (PHP) since like 1985.

15.1? I know he can't drive. The 02 trans am ws-6 6 speed's were supposed to run 13.20's from the factory. I drove my cousins with 9,000 miles onit after a few practice passes to a 12.98 @ 107.

Well

I personally don't mind driving them, they are a lot of fun to drive I think, the only problem is that everyone has one. And they all look and sound the same. They can be made quick, but personally I wouldn't pay a lot of money for one. Basically you either love them or hate them, I like driving my friends everyonce and a while, and I do like the sound of a nice V8 rumble, but just to many of the damn things.

your talking about ws6s and mach1s. from the factory i have never seen a gt mustang run below a 14.9. maybe a cobra or mach1 will break a 14 flat. but not a factory gt.

a mustang gt or a firebird shouldnt be cmopared to a cobra, mach1, or a ws6....
i ran a guy with a late 80's early 90s gt that had ihe and gears.. and some other things... and he ran like a 14.3..... those cars are faster than anything newer short of brand new gts
