i jess raced a 5.0 mustang righ now, he passed me up and i caught up to him, give him a nod, he gives a nod back, i tol him to roll down his window Me: hey u wanna run? Him: naw your car is too much Me: naw its slow, inline 4, nothing compared to mustangs Him: what have u got on there? Me: nothing juss intake Him: oh me too, Me: cmon lets run once. So the light turns green and we both gun it. He peeled out a little while i gained a lead on him, and i juss kept pulling until the middle of 3rd gear where he gave up and i was like up by 2-3 cars, so we slowed down and talk and he was like what are you gona do to it, i was like turbo!! =P, hmm yea, pretty nice guy =] btw my car is 92preludesi , he also commented how my car looks new

if that's true, congratulations. his car must have been ailing.

normally, a stock 5.0 will run aboout 15 flat in the 1/4... which is more than a second faster than a 3rd gen SI!

A 92 is a 4th gen Si.

If its a heavy older auto its possible to keep up. The auto GT's were high 15 second cars stock back then. The Prelude Si's ran high 15 to low 16 second times stock. I doubt the Mustang is in new condition now..they get tired as they age. Race a 5 speed 5.0 though, especially an LX, and he will hand you your tail.
