Well if it is a rousch cougar, it can depend.. I know rousch does everything from bodykits on-up to some bolt on performance parts.. so I guess it depends on how "rousch" it is...

I'd say in stock trim the V6 5spd cougar would give a SS a decent run. Now I never heard of a Rousch Cougar but Rousch Racing makes some serious Mustangs and if they gave the Cougar the same treatment you'd get spanked. The 2.5 V6 is the same one that makes 200hp in the SVT just not tuned for it. If Ford could make 200hp out of it I'm sure Rousch could make plenty more then that.

BTW why would you even care? Cougars suck! They have awful track records for warranty work and fit and finish...I remember my friend who was a parts manager for mecury told me of a Cougar that came in because the rear wheel fell off the car. I read a few message boards and that wasn't the only one to do it! They have bad welds on the rear axle or faulty hubs...soemthing like that.

Stock cougars are dogs... extremely slow cars.

I can't find any info on a "Rousch Cougar". I'm sure they could build something that could spank you bad though.

Well there was a sweet yellow Rousch Couger in Sport Compact a few months ago. It was supercharged and crazy fast. I think I remember there weren't any production plans though. If it's anything like that car, you're way dead meat.

I would imagine the Cougar is compared with the Prelude because they are both sport coupes and both are fairly slow. But from what I have seen on even the fastest Cougars, they have VERY bad 1/4 mile times.

I am not positive but can you get the wings west kit straight from the mercury dealer? I swear I am sick and tired of seeing cougars with bodykits and they are all jacked up looking. It's extremely tasteless and serves no purpose if your car isn't dropped atleast a little bit. The car would probably be a lot faster if they didn't have domes sticking out of every piece of the car.

And with all the money put in to that Yellow Rousch cougar, that thing wasn't even close to fast.
