2011 GT 5.0 vs IS-F

From looks of it by comparison on weight(estimated) vs power ratio anyone think the new 5.0 will take on the F?

2008 StarFire Pearl F (03/31/08) Sold As of July 2010!!
Debating on what car at the moment!!
2012 GT-R (Revised model) or

I am very curious too. I will definitely be test driving one of the Coyote 5.0 Mustangs when winter is over. The harsh part will be the dozens of after market mod's available for it while my ISF has so few.

Give the F time it will have tons of parts eventually. A lot of new promissing parts have been discussed about being made. I bet by next summer there will be a lot more parts for our cars.

Regardless of the outcome the F still will have a better quality, fit and finish, and better reliability

Absolutely. You guys are in a unique club of owners. If you like to change cars every now and again, I can guarantee that a Mustang would be one heck of a change.

I agree, I definitely am not buying a 5.0 mustang. Just curious and want to drive to compare the V8's. I like being 1 of only 3 ISF's in my entire county and the only Ultrasonic Blue one around.

I agree as well. Who cares if the mustang is as fast as the F. I can find a way to make a minivan beat the ISF in a straight line if I really wanted to...that doesn't mean that I would ever actually want to drive it.

I also agree though that the mustang would be fun to test drive.

2008 Lexus IS F - SGM - JoeZ intake pipe, Tom's filter, Borla catback exhaust, 30% tint all around, 245/35R19 and 275/30R19 Continental DWS tires
2006 Honda CBR1000RR - Akrapovic Evolution Line Race Exhaust, BMC Race Air Filters, Vortec Rear Sets, Bazzaz Tuner, Dyno Mapped
2000 Honda S2000 (Sold and missed)- AP2 in an AP1, BC coilovers, Prodrive monoblock forged wheels, etc.

The new 5.0 engine is mighty impressive. Ford really seems to be on a roll lately.
