    1992 3000GT VR4 VS. 2007 Mustang GT

    Im the hopefully soon to be owner(theres a fun story behind that) of a 92 VR4 and an aquaintance of mine is the owner of a 07 Mustang GT. On a drag track, who would be faster? My VR4 would have the resonator removed, open downpipe exhaust, K&N Proformance airfilter, and possibly an HKS "super mega flow" short ram intake. His Mustang is still stock except for the muffler being removed. Whos your money on?

    Probably the 3000GT... depends how well you can pedal your car. Prepare to lose about 500 miles off your clutch if you're going to dump it.

    Your car is about 280 LBs heavier. I'd go with the mustang, sorry!

    His car also has AWD and a little more power (I think?) so it will come down to the driver.
    PPC - Put a V8 in it!

    I believe it has more power but less torque, so not much of a help.

    I did forget about the 4wd though. being able to put the power to the road is definitely a bonus.

    I'll be interested to see what other people think.

    Standard, the VR4 pumps out 320bhp. I don't know how much the mods would add powerwise, let's say a reserved guess of 25bhp. That's 345bhp, AWD, better aerodynamics, a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds stock, and a total weight of 3781lbs.

    The Mustang has 300bhp standard, probably 310bhp at a generous guess for the muffler being removed. RWD, worse aerodynamics, 0-60 time of 5.2 secs, and it weighs 3483lbs.

    My money's on the VR4, if you know how to shift.

    According to teh internets, a 2007 Mustang GT has a 0-60 time of 5.3 seconds (the 2006 had a 4.9) and a Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 has a 0-60 of 5.4 (that's probably for a newer one than a 92 though)

    These cars are surprisingly well matched.

    It's hard to say, because it really comes down to the drivers.

    Friend of mine use to have a VR4, I've been in it, I've driven it, and I can guarantee you that it's definitely faster than a Mustang GT.

    It use to have exhaust and an air filter and it was enough to give an 04 SMG M3 a run for its money.

    Yea, thought about that, i knew mustangs were heavy but i wasnt sure if mine would be heavyier.

    Yea more power hp wise and the AWD helps it take off, im just worried that down the line the Mustang's RWD might catch it up.

    The stock torque is about 307 ft./lbs, its close up there with the stock hp. and the AWD the VR4 comes with i hear helps tons.

    Thanks for the specs, i wasnt sure how much any of that stuff would add but that sounds like a well rounded guess. But yea, i got some practicing to do before i race.

    The 91-93s with the resonator removed are suppost to be almost if not exactly the same hp and torque as the later "2nd gens." So i guess thats another vote for "depends on the drivers" lol thanks
