Um. if the stang is stock, you don't need much at all.

As long as you have a 5 speed, minimal mods (i.e. basic EFFECTIVE bolt ons such as UDP, ported 2k intake and cam gears for starters) would be needed to pull on one of them at the track.

V6 stangs are awfully slow.

...Sounds like you were street-racing...


...Anyways, just buy a bone-stock PZEV and learn how to drive it...Bone-stock (and even fart-can equipped) V6 Mustangs will get accustomed to your tail lights...

Actually, i think you have a good chance of winning against a v6stang, just make sure its a v6.

I have a bit of a funny story about a V6 stang...

I had a friend with a V6 auto, he had a complete Cobra R conversion, even down to the stock cobra exhaust. This thing looked like a cobra. My car was pretty stock (No filter and no mufflers, and thats about it).

So we were at cali speedway's poor excuse for a strip and we decided to run. The announcer announces us (we were in the "Grudge match" lane (which happened to put us in the middle of the imports run group) and just refers to mike's car as a mustang and my car as a kona. I could see all the old school domestic guys laugh in the stands. We staged and went, and i got him by .3, but here's the kicker...at cali speedway, there's no timeboards, so only you and the guy you ran know what times you ran. I didn't really think anything of it till someone came up to me and asked if i was the focus that beat the cobra. Talk about getting a big head.

So the moral of the story is. If its an auto V6 you need very little. If its a stick you need a little more.

i have a 5-speed ZX3 (2000 so i get the old skool manifold), with UDP, Volant, cat-back, and 65mm TB. i regularly whoop up on V6 Mustangs, i mean i know my role in the food chain of cars, so i wouldn't mess with a V8 stang, but those V6's are one of the cars i never ever have a problem with.

...Geez...I have a funny story about the mis-identified SN-95 GT who now most likely has a brown stain on his drivers seat cos my PZEV ZX3 with just an exhaust went from dead even, only to the back of his front fender, after approx. 1/4 mile...
