Believe a N/A Saleen is 280 BHP. The 06 should win a fairly close race. It could come down to who's the better driver.

The 06 with a 3.31 rear may still have the edge. It's going to be close. I think it really comes down to the drivers.

It sounds like this is less of a hypothetical question and more like you've been challenged or you're ready to issue a challenge. If you do, take it to the track and do it safely. It's more of a real race that way. My bet's on the '06 Auto.

'05 Sonic Blue GT w/ '07 V8 engine, 5-sp, IUP, Beige leather interior, nothing else -
just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

he hasnt challenged yet nor have i...he has just spoke about how he smoked someone in an 05 or 06 even after giving him to 2nd before taking off....which sounded like bs to me...he said he pulled up to a guy and told him to take off and when he scratched 2nd then he would take off

My QuestionS Are How Fast Were They Going At The End And Where Did This Take Place (On The Street)? Because If You Floor The 05 GT By The Time You Hit 2nd You're Doing Around 40-45 Mph Atleast, I Have A V6 And Mine Shifts Right About There So He Had To Be Hauling.
