Horsepower - 190 @ 5250 rpm
Torque - 220 @ 2750 rpm
Displacement - 3.8L
Bore x Stroke(in.) - 3.81 x 3.40
Compression Ratio - 9.36:1

and... my friend has the 2005 Mazda 3 with the sports package,
I dont know much about the mazda other then i believe its a 4 cyl with 2.3L engine and 160 HP

V6 mustang's don't have a rear swaybar, and since you have a vert the "Bolt-on" subframe connectors don't help, advantage will go to the mazda

Oh! This is the road racing section.

Yeah, you've got to weld in some subframe connectors and get a GT takeoff rear sway bar + improved shocks to even have a chance around the track.

Probably shouldn't quote me on anything I say, I don't know a ton about racing specs and all that. Just thought I'd mention, according to Edmunds (don't know how reliable they are) a stock 2000 v6 mustang's 0-60 time is 7.3 seconds, the 2005 mazda 3's 0-60 time is 9.73 seconds.

^^I agree. Most Mazda's handle pretty decently from the factory. I like Mazda's quite a bit, they are nice cars. They are usually quick too.
