Well.. another "muscle" guy decided to run his trap about my Civic again... oh well. I have full bolt ons now, and my JRSC supercharger will be installed and tuned a month from now. I'm also running HFP suspension, 225/z1 star spec tires and boomba mounts are going in.

I have a friend with a manual 05 or 06? Mustang GT convertible who says that once my SC goes in I'll still have no chance with him. If we run up to the 1/4 mile track and suppose I do well for traction (I can launch well) can I get him? Anyone have first hand experience with this?

Honestly I think you will win. Those GT's had around 300hp didnt they? Depending on the bolt-ons I'm sure you are anywhere from 270hp and up and I'm sure that's enough in our little cars to pass him. With his being a convertible it's even heavier than the normal model.

There not the fastest i have a freind with a manual coupe 05 gt. I drive it all the time. She has magnaflow cat back exhaust and k&n intake. They make 300hp at the flywheel im sure somwhere arround 240-250 to the wheels. Also you have to factor in they are heavier not sure exactly but im thinking in the neighborhood of 3600pds maybe 3800 with gas and driver. I think a good launch on a supercharged si you should own it. Its gonna come down to track, tires and how you take off but you should win.

I have no problems keeping up with them stock with full bolt-ons and a tune, if you lose to a slightly modded one with a s/c, driver sucks.

You should be fine. I think those mustangs run high 13's stock. With a decent launch it shouldn't be too hard to pull a low 13 second pass with your car. Launch the **** out of it and 12's are possible. Keep talking **** to your friend so when you smoke him he will STFU :lildevil:

With equal drivers, the Si will win. No doubt about it. I've driven more GT's than I have Civics.

My buddy has an 05 GT with I/E, and tune and I'm I/H/E SC stg 2. I have yet to race him at the track but we both agree my car is faster... you should be able to take him.
He has the coupe so the vert is going to be a little slower too.

I know for fact I raced a 2009 GT/CS and he beat me by not that much. He ran a 14.4 and I a 14.6. I had I/H/E/Motor Mounts. He had an exhaust.

Really? It'll pull that much harder?
The GT will most definitely pull ahead at the start because of it's higher torque, but once the cars hit 60mph or so the Si will blow past it. We're talking about a relatively stock GT here, right?

He's bone stock, manual convertible. Says that no matter what I do to my "4 banger" his GT will always beat me, at any speed. :facepalm:

lol - he sounds like an arrogant tool. Now, you have to beat him! Show him the video of the 10 second 1/4 mile Si..., that should shut him up.

i don't knwo what he has done, but i raced a mustang gt with just a tune and 295's on the back and he ran 13.5 @ 104 mph.

so if you get good traction you can win.

I'd rather let him talk smack and then TRY and humiliate him lol!!:vtec:
haha, yeah I can understand that. My buddy was pretty much the same way before I put the blower on my car. Now, he says my car is fast since it is so light! I'm going to the track this Saturday but he won't come with my other friend until he gets his new intake and tune. In other words, he's scared! :wigglesmiley:
