I know a CX-5 won't beat a V6 Mustang, after 1st gear it has no power. From a standstill it just feels faster till the Mustang hits 3500 RPM's due to the 2.73's. Thankfully that will be fixed Monday, should have done more rresearch and gotten the performance package, but my wife fell in love with the grabber blue and matte black stripe.

Going to be an interesting drag race now, the Mustang will have the torque advantage over my Camaro, but once the Vortech spools up can the Camaro catch the Mustang? Going to be some awesome GoPro vids.

Wife = 2012 Mustang V6 Premium Grabber Blue BBK CAI, BBK LT w/ HFC, Borla ATAK, MPT Tune, DSS Driveshaft, 3.73 FRPP Gears, BMR LCA's | Best = 13.5 @ 105
Husband = 2010 Camaro V6 Synergy Green Edition IPF Supercharger Best = 12.5 @ 111
Closest finish @ the line = Wife by 0.0028 seconds (4.79 inches)

Also own a 2014 Mustang GT Premium, Brembo Package, 401A, Comfort Package, Shaker Pro System, Pedestal Spoiler
