Shearer already said he would step up for the DSM (Talon/Eclipse) camp. We need a Mustang shop to do a stang.

The Challenge is to take a stock DSM and a stock 5.0L Mustang, throw 5K at each car and see who runs the quicker ET.

do all parts have to be paid for, will donated parts go towards the 5k total?

Best way to keep it fair would probably be to add whatever part as what it retailed (or wholesaled for) new.

You start letting parts be donated itll end up getting way the hell out of controll. IMO it should be $5k worth of parts installed on a stock car.

Still curious where the hell youre gonna find a stock mustang or a stock DSM.

Way to grey! Fun concept but there is no way to ref the whole thing.

That isn't a problem for either camp.

They are still out there, or at least the engines are. We all have a pretty good idea what both are capable of (without cheating)...who wants an ass load of free advertising?

Race could even happen on pinks or 1320X (Nate is a member)....

We have one of the best 4G63 guys in the world on the Talon, so I would expect a similar level-shop handle the stang.

-Nothing against you dude, and big props for stepping up.

I have a LX being converted from 4 cyl now to V-8,I have ALL the stock V-8 stuff including T-5 and V-8 Computer.So how is this supposed to work?

Is there a company that will buy the parts or do we (the owner) of the car buys the parts? Does the winner collect 5 g's from a sponsor?

Its pretty easy to ref it as long as you have people who play fair.

I can wait to see this happen, would be an awesome thing to happen and I am excited!

Depends where it goes! :cool:

I was thinking it would end up as a shop VS shop thing..for advertising..possibly on TV...and this 5000 page thread LOL

Stock DSM's are not that hard to find, I have a stock 95 GST, well.. pretty stock hehe. Intake, exhaust and BoV, thats it, I consider that stock.

Does required safety equipment count against the $5K?

Why 20 year old cars? Does the mustang have to retain a 8.2 deck SBF? Does it even have to be Ford powered?
Yes, STOCK 5.0L mustang must be the starting point.

This is the thing, you bought the car and have 5K to spend. Who's quicker?

Of coarse there will be porting and other labors added in (not included)...but the parts cannot add over 5K.
