So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

Discussion in '1999 Ford Saleen Mustang S-351' started by Imports Suck, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. Why dont GM owners compare their 350s to this 351? why compare a 350 to a 281? Oh because this car would rip apart any GM stock.
     
  2. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    true, but my question is why does ford not use the 351w on thier mustangs? anwser ford is chicken.
     
  3. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    The real answer is why use the 351 when the 281 keeps up with the 350
     
  4. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    first of all, 281 does not keep up with chevy 350 H.O., I raced my friend's '90 Z28 vs. 2000 Mustang GT... and won by 2 1/2 carlengths. But you can't really compare this car to chevy stock 350, because this car is made by tom saleen, not stock from ford.

    I meant '98 Z28 not '90 my bad

    tom saleen ???...it`s STEVE saleen, geez talk about blowin' your cover now we all know you're just a 13 year old kid trying to make some friends on his dad's computer.

    That is what I am saying!!! I just hate it when ford put a 4 valve motor in the mustang. GM sticks true to muscle with their potent little 350. And hell no a 281 does not keep up with the 350. The 350 does circles around the 281. I am sure if Ford would at least put a 302 OHV it would be competition for the 350. Just like in the late 80's and early 90's when the chevy 305 and 350 could not keep up with the 302.

    because this engine is Supercharged and not endorsed by ford. PS -fords sound better than chevys although chevy has more power potential and effiency

    The Engine is a genwine Ford Mustang engine, from fords racing department. Doesnt matter who made the car..the fact is that it is a mustang and it is a ford engine in it

    so ya mean that the corvette and other gm haven't their own engine, is that so?
     
  11. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    Oh, it doesn't matter who made the car huh? So your saying the '88 Callaway detuned to 880 HP from 1200 HP is fair to compare??? Besides, this car costs more than 2x a Z28. Why don't you compare Factory produced Ford to Factory produced Chevy like the '01 SS vs. the '01 Cobra?

    "Why dont GM owners compare their 350s to this 351? why compare a 350 to a 281? Oh because this car would rip apart any GM stock. "

    lol actually they base more than size of engine when comparing things bro. they would not compare a $55,000 to a $24,000 car, if you want to cpmpare this car to a gm car considering price, compare it to z06 bro, and you will see who rips what.

    ok, ill end this right now, i have a 92 stang with a 351 in it, its really built now, but when i first got it runnin i had a crappy 5 speed and a crappy rear end (no posie, 3.42 gear)and i smoked a brand 2002 SS 6 speed , it was even a race, my motor made near 330 hp then, and i was on bald drag radials.my car will do 10.80's now lets so see a blown SS slowmaro touch that, haha, Ford rules
     
  16. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    oh yeah, and isnt it funny how the lightning(a full size truck)will run with a new vette , but oh yeah "it has a blower" lets consider that 6 lbs of boost a replacement for displacement. just wait till the 5.0 cammer comes back out. dohc 5.0 makin nearly 500 naturally aspirated horses "stock". im an ohv guy, but dohc is the future of the street car, it doesnt have a place on the race track yet. but Fords proving it potential as every year the cobra gets better.

    Or maby a chevy 350 with 305 heads can get 16:1 compression ratio and produce upwards of 600hp.
     
  18. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    Am I comparing this car to an ss? NO MORON, I am simply stating that this car is a mustang with a mustang engine in it. I wouldnt compare this car to any Chevy because it is overpowering and second and most importantly this car costs nearly 60 thousand
     
  19. Re: So why doesn't chevy compare this 5.8 to their 5.7?

    I agree with 351wFOX, the SS doesn't impress me, i would much rather have a stang over a camaro anyday, and i own a chevy.

    however, all this talk about the Saleen being faster then any stock chevy got me thinking about the 2002 Z06. the Z06 is faster then the saleen and it is truly STOCK. the saleen here is NOT stock. the definition of "stock" is basically this: it comes straight out of the factory as is, no changes whatsoever. if it comes out of the factory supercharged, its stock. if it comes out of the factory and then someone puts a "ford" supercharger oin it, it is not stock. even though the parts are ford, that doesn't mean that the car is stock. even a simple wheel change would make a car no longer stock. hope we are clear on that. thats my ten cents.

    P.S. i love this car <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
