SS/SC vs. 5.0 Mustang

Ok, let me be honest, I have no idea how much power these old models have, but they ALWAYS sound sweet as hell. Here is the story.

I'm driving down a 4 lane road when I get in the chicken lane to turn left into my girlfriends neighborhood. Well, before I got in the chicken lane, I noticed a car riding my ass but didn't think much of it cause he wasn't acting stupid or anything. Well, I turn on my blinker and get in the chicken lane.....this guy buzzes buy my car, dropping a gear next to me and barking his tires. I laughed and was like, ok, fuck that. So I did what any of us with some pride and a set would do....I chased that asshole down. I get next to him and he knew that I was coming back to play, cause he saw me get out of the chicken lane and floor it. I pull next to him and hold still for a few seconds. Then I dropped a gear and waited. Sure enough....I heard him drop it. We both punched it. We started off fast, prolly 60mph or so (I was in the top of 2nd). I pulled about half a car, and then I had to shift. Our starting speed is what messed me up cause I was at the top of a gear to begin with. but by the time I was half way through 3rd around 90-100 mph, I had gained prolly another car and was just starting to pull hard on him. It was a quick and solid kill. I was happy, cause I knew I was clueless as to how much power those stangs have, and I was taking a chance with my own pride as well. Its like standing up to the bully when you know you would get your ass whipped (you just stand there praying he is a coward). Looks stupid when you stand up to a bully and get your ass whipped. lol.

p.s. The funny part was thinking about how pissed he was. Showing off his car, getting chased down by the car you were showboating to, then getting your ass whipped in a matter of seconds.


Anybody know how much power the 5.0s have????or do they just sound mean?

Most older Mustangs you see are 1988-1993, the 5.0 in those had 225HP.

I had a 1991 GT with the following mods:
- Flowmaster Cat-Back
- Off Road H-Pipe
- K&N Drop-In w/silencer removed

I took it to the track a few times and made a total of 13 passes. Most of the time it ran mid to high 14's in the upper 90's.

At the time I thought it was pretty quick until a stock LT1 ate me for lunch.

Chicken lane is the turning lane on big roads. 2 yellow lines that both ways of traffic use as a turning lane.


...this cat had a lot more than 225 hp. Wish I knew his mods.
