Thread Summary: With equal drivers a 5.0 will beat 335i. The 5.0 is just the better "Bang for the Buck". But the 335i has European luxury and with a relatively cheap tune can stay in the same ballpark as a 5.0. The Mustang was my second choice, but couldn't be happier that I got a 335.

+1 the interior on the mustang made me cringe but looks pretty good otherwise. 335i definitely has a quality factor to it

personal real life summary from countless races at my track. I've only lost to ONE 5.0 and he was on a 150 shot and wouldn't talk about any of his other mods. he ran 11.6

all the others have been 12.1-13s
I'm sure there's plenty of faster ones out there, but there are also plenty of faster N54s than me out there

I respect the 5.0s and actually like them a lot. The weathers getting cooler in florida and i fully expect to have to step up my game soon to stay consistent with the kills

A real good friend of mine has a 2011 5.0 mustang. He is "new" to racing, but goes to the 1/4 mile almost weekly. He has been stuck at 12.4-5 116-117 for a while. His is Auto, and has an intake, throttle body, Steeda tune, and a Borla cat back. He still needs to get the H pipe and Headers to get to a more "full bolt on" setup. Considering stock it was running 12.8 @ 107 with him driving, it picked up quite a bit...

2 Things to keep in mind. First those cars have a lot of combinations of gears available stock from different rear ends, to manual vs. Auto, and it makes a difference. Second, they seem to hit a brick wall around 100mph or so. When we run on the highway, once I shift into 4th on my car (FBO & meth) I start to walk away. It's pretty nice, because unless we run out of room, I'll allways win the highway. The Strip is another thing, I am still "one wheel drive" so I can't get the 60' times he should be albe to get with the Automagic trans. LOL I need to get a diff, however the 335 is not a drag car, and I know it.

X...

You can do it! i cut 1.7x to 1.8x 60ft times all the time with 255 nitto invo street tires. You just gotta try harder! Any rwd car on street tires is gonna be tricky to cut good 60fts, but it can be done

edit Im one wheel drive
