This guy does not speak for Mustang owners. He's kind of a tool. Props to anyone who appreciates domestic metal.

To bad that ford makes it but chevy shakes it. I think back in the 40's or so ford was putting small block chevys in there cars. And why do they call it a boss mustang 350 AKA chevy motor.
hahahaha there is no such thing as a 350 boss mustang! its a 351 and thats a ford motor duurrrrr

Ford Owners R Dumbasses. had no problems with my 08 Cobalt SS or my 09 HHR. GM is good with chevy vehicles, any other than chevy is blah. and ford sucks worse than GM. Chevy and Chrysler are the best reliable cars out there today.

Ok I am In a large car club. We have all types. We have many mustangs from the fox body to the 03-04 Cobra, right up to the GT500. We also have a TC SS with a stage one. I can tell you this. The TC SS is fast and does beat some of the older mustangs that have next to no mods but even with a stage one kit it's best time was a 13.4 in the 1/4. The new 5.0 bone stock runs a 12.7 in the 1/4. So from a dig I don't see the SS beating the new 5.0. Maybe a 88-94 5.0. Now from a roll with a stage one it would be a better race but still the mustang WILL come out on top. You would have to mod the crap out of it to beat the new (2011) mustang. Hell the new v6 mustang would give the SS a good run. The 3.7L v6 mustang puts down 308 to the wheels bone stock and runs a 13.7 in the 1/4.
