2006 GTO vs 2011 5.0 Mustang GT

So I was MMOB south of the border in Mexico, chilling in a parking lot talking to a possible future Goat owner who I just let take a little test drive in the Blue Beast. I see a new 5.0 creeping up towards the Goat and was praying he would stop so I could ask for a run. Musta been my lucky day cause thats exactly what he did.

He rolls down his window and says "Hey man nice GTO... "

I responded with "Thanks! Nice 5.0 you have there... been looking for one of those to run."

He says "Thanks, I was actually just about to ask you if you wanted to run."

I agree and we bsed a little bit (about mods etc) before rolling out.... he seemed very confident in his car (not that I blame him). I said we should even the weight up because our cars are very closely matched (no passenger with me). He says hes not worried about it and would run with the 2 people in his car. Also made a comment about wanting to add this to his video collection and how he had already killed a Goat a little while back. I knew this was going to be some close races... so we roll out and he follows me to a spot that I run at in Mexico. When we pull up to the parking lot, his passenger gets out and decides hes going to be riding with me after all . So I we both have 1 passenger, two cameras rolling (wish I could get his videos cause my camera man wasnt the best).

Here are the results...

My concern with these new 5.0's is the potential they have from tuning and mods. They are physically huge motors because of the overhead cams, but I hear there is tremendous potential for all kinds of valve event tuning.

They are pretty tuned up from the factory, but there is still plenty to be gained from what I hear. People are saying 30rwhp for a tune and CAI! I saw one with just a tune and DRs run an 11.8 at the track friday night. Auto though with 3.73s...
