I actually think the GTO's run like crap for the HP rating. The new GTO's are very heavy, have an IRS rear and are no match for a properly set-up Mustang.

Unfortunately for you, you have one of the slowest Mustangs ever produced. 96-98GT vert is about slow as you get.

He will beat you pretty easily.

Haven't been on in quite a while, but saw this post and since I just recently added an 05 GTO to my stable, I can add a little. First there was no 07, only 04-06. The 04's have the LS1 rated at 350hp, the 05-06 have the LS2 with 400hp. The fastest stock time I've see recorded was 12.8, most are in the low 13's so it's not going to be pretty for you.

I gotta agree totally with 91GTturbo on this. My couz purchased an
'06 GTO last year and he already owned a '95GT so we took them both out for a little test run. He and I have owned many muscle cars over the years so we figured we could get a good idea on the comparison. Well, the GTO totally dusted the GT, totally. We swapped rides and had the same outcome. Now I get to become the proud owner of the '95GT with only 15K miles on it. I won't tell the price cause too many would cry. Last Stang I owned was a '67 GT that was stolen 4 months after I bought it so have been hoping for another GT. Now that I'm going on 57 years old, I figure I deserve it.

Just stay away from GTOs with experienced drivers. It's the experience that really does make the difference. Now he has an '06 GTO to sit next to his '66 GTO and he's a happy old man like me.

(now if he will just tire of the GTO!)

i raced a bud with a totally stock 06 6.0l gto with my totally stock 07 gt from 60 punch to about 120. the gto beat me by about car mabey a car and a half. i knew i would loose but i expected more from a 400hp 6.0l vs a 300 4.6l. needless to say i wasnt that impressed with the gto. so tmake me feel better we lined up the stock 380hp (yea right ford mabey at the wheels lol) 04 cobra aginst the gto and the gto had no chance.
