Mustang HP vs Other Vehicles

Before I start the topic I do want to say that I am very pleased with the performance of my 05 V6. And from reading this forum I am sure the GT is awesome. Plus there is no way I would trade my Mustang for anything else.

Okay that said, let me ask - Did it seem like on Sunday's coverage of the International Auto Show that everything that was around 4.0 and 4.6 had more HP than the Mustang? Did Ford mess up by not making the engines just a little more powerful? I think they did. It doesn't seem right to have such a good looking car that reminds everyone of the Muscle Car Days that might can be outran by a soccer mom in a minivan or SUV.

I just put on a set JBA Cat forward shorty headers (I already have the Roush axle back exhaust), throttle body and spacer, aFe CAI and Steeda underdrive pulleys (finished this one today) and a Diablo tune. I ordered the charge motion plate eliminators, should have those on mid next month and then will dyno and re-tune. With the exception of the headers I have put all this on myself, these cars are very easy to work on then my old 69 Mach1 was. I have not ran up against too much that impresses me with looks or stock power over the Mustang. I am sure there are models out there that can blow your doors off stock from the dealer IE, the new Vet.....but when you think about the history of Ford, they have always had one true muscle car, the Mustang. All the others have taken stabs at anything they can build...GTO, Camaro, Trans, Fire Bird, Charger, Challenger, they all gave up and now they are trying to make come backs and out do the Mustang. Whatever short comings Ford has done with power can be corrected. And if I get beat by something else, so be it. But I still have the best looking car with the most loyal of owners anywhere. Here is a link with a better picture of my girl and I will never let her go :) ...Just my long winded 2 cents worth :tongue
