I wish more people thought like you did, It would make my job alot easier. There is nothing worse than having to tell a loved one there kid is dead due to some idiot racing on the street. I can add a drunk driver also!

Vector Tune is references an aftermarket tune on the computer controls of the engine and tranny. open cone is simply an open cone filter under the hood....IMO go with a cold air intake or fenderwell intake, CAI or FWI.
Opening up the headlight allows more air into the stock airbox. I don't do it since I have a FWI and run my car as I would on the street.
Email me and I'll point you in some great directions/links.

I am a little confused, the 2005 Mustang GT is quoted at 0-60 in 5.1 secs (for the 5spd) by Motortrend and 13.5 sec 103.6 mph for the 1/4 mile. While I love my 06 GXP, I think the mustang can take the GXP.

yes, the new style MGT's can and will take a GXP by 1-4 lengths depending on the launch of both. The MGT will have to be a stick shift though. Autos aren't nearly as fast and I've seen most run low to mid 14's. I can hook up and hit 13.8's pretty typically in my GXP and have been edged out by GT's at the track.....but I've not seen one go below 13.6's yet....stock that is.

This is highly unlikely. M3 driver must not have been racing or they weighed 300+ pounds each. M3 hardtop can run a 13.4 in the 1/4, the droptop can run a 13.7.

I know it's been a while since this post, but could you provide me with some of those links, especially for the fenderwell air intake? Thank you.

um, for the #3 post, I don't know where you got that info (mustang gt does 0-60 in 7.03???) ya, maybe in 1982! The current mustang gt does 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. Although they have similar horsepower and torque ratings, the GXP seems to be much heavier than the mustang gt (i've got to check the actual curb weights), so I have no doubt that the stang would smoke the prix.

A stock Mustang GT 05+ out of the box can run in the mid 13's and they are well under 6 seconds 0 - 60. The Mustang should destroy the Pontiac out of the hole for sure. The Pontiac with it's SC should play catch-up however. N/A cars and those that are blown perform a lot differently. The Pontiac would be better suited to race the Mustang from a rolling start.
My 2000 GT Vert ran 13.8 when it was stock at 100 mph with a 2.0 60 foot....stock days are well beyond me though - lol
The stock Mustang GT and the Pontiac seem very evenly matched though when looking at the 1999 - 2004 Mustangs.
