Driving around recently and had two nice and extremely close races with the Turbo X. First was the Mustang GT, either an 09 or 10. I was behind him and he took off. Followed from about 20 to 80 and closed the gap by only 5 feet or so. We then traded places and did the same 20 to 80 roll with me in front and the same results.

Later was side by side with a new Ram 2500 4x4 and did a similar run from 20-80. I don't know what type of engine the Ram had but it wasn't the diesel. I honestly don't know which was faster, the Turbo X or the 2500, it was dead even the entire time.

The Turbo X is still stock, and the Thule roof rack ski pod didn't help aerodynamics, but it was fun having such close races.

I had a Ram 2500 4x4 with the 360. Stomping on the go pedal made the gas gauge drop almost as fast as the speedometer would climb!

ive seen a bone stock Nissan Titan beat a 2010 mustang gt
those are fast trucks too
I am a fast truck guy however, I do not see how a Titan could beat a 2010 400+hp Mustang. Bad driver? Titans have what, 330hp?

In any case, we're talking about a 2500 here thats not a diesel and is fast somehow.

2010 gt has a 315bhp 4.6l
the 2011 gt on the other hand has the 412bhp 5.0l

Bullocks. I thought it started in 2010, where's Jameson when you need him?

I think titans have optional final drives, and some bolt ons. My friend has a 1st year fully optioned titan for off roading primarily and the thing flies. Definitely more than 330hp, but I don't even care to find out how its so fast. All I know is he got it brand new specced out that way.

2010 Mustang got the face-lift and suspension work, 2011 got the vastly improved engines.

Sounds like a couple of fun races...there IS a replacement for displacement:D
