Default SSE vs. Stock Mustang GT?

Hey, I'm new here, first post

A kid at work has a stock Bonneville SSE (thats the supercharged one right?) to my Stock 2003 mustang GT. He wants to race from a dig and thinks he can take me... is he full of it or is there some truth to his story?

Most SSE'* were not supercharged. If he is, he'* got you stock for stock. The SSEi'* are all supercharged.

Otherwise, it depends on the year. Another member here lives next door to me. He'* got a 93SSE, and runs neck and neck with most stock GT'*. They beat him off the line, but he catches up fast.

After 95, you're gonna have more trouble. Big boost in hp and torque in those years. I think he'l give you a run for the money. Surprised?

I told the kid Ill only run on a track since I dont like street racing, (his is supercharged, its an SSEi, i forgot the i on there). Early 90'* say 93-94. What do these run 1/4'* usually? I'm not that great of a driver and ran mine to 14.13 @ 99.1 bone stock.

Yeah that supprises me that the big family car can put out that well vs. a sports car

You must have a 99 or newer. They made more power. If that'* the case, and he'* not modded, you'll take him. A slightly modded 96 or newer SSEi might be a different story though. ****. I didn't even see your year in the first post!

I'd like to see you run against a 2003 SSEi Like a good challenge? Still a heavier car, but big balls in the torque department. Tell your friend to join up over here. We'll help him along!

Ill do that. Average dyno numbers for stock 99+ GT'* is something like 240-245 HP/ 290 torque. The older (96-9 4.6 GT'* had real constrictive heads and were rated at 215 HP and were real dogs. (Heavier than the 99+ as well)

I'd be up for a run with a new SSEi, Anyone in the detroit area interested in hitting up the Milan Dragway on a T&T night?

thanks for the input!

You just have to remember the SSEi you're talking about at work is a decade older than you

Give him a little credit for his age. He can take nearly anything of his own vintage.

well, he'* the one that wanted to run, he aproached me :P

I'm fairly certain that he wouldnt have much trouble with a stock 5.0 fox body mustang, the 5.0 is a great motor but didnt put much out from the factory.

I'll give you credit for one thing (remember this is a GM forum!)....I love that color. VERY sharp. Not as fast as green, but it'll do!

thanks! It was my favorite out of the available colors. Mineral Gray would have been my next choice, but they changed to a darker shade and I didnt like it as much..

as far as GM goes (hehe) at least ford still makes a sports car naw just messin, I dont want to get into a GM/Ford war, we get enough of that over on stangnet.com :(
