nice vid, but I must admit the mustang does sound nice even though you whooped him.

Oh yeah, i love the sound of a mustang. A friend of mine has a 2v gt with gutted cats and a cam and it sounds amazing.

Primer/flat black is for ricers, too. Anything non-rice that is flat black makes me want to puke.
Stages do exist for Mopar...which is a rare instance of a "stage" upgrade.

Whether or not he actually did it...thats a diff story. Anything in "stages" is stupid. I had a guy in my apartment complex ask me about the size of the turbo on my car, and I told him. He immediately followed up with a "Damn, that must be what, stage 3?" Our conversation quickly ended after that.

So I asked him about it and he says "yeah...it's goin in tomorrow for the Stage 3" so I'm like "I never saw it, what color is it?" and he says "Flat Black." A) if someone claims to have a flat black, like primered black SRT4, that goes in and out of the shop every other day, they're full of ****, 2) anyone who refers to an upgrade as a "stage" they don't know what the F talking about, and D) don't ever try to bullshit someone who knows about cars like I do, cause you'll just make yourself look like an idiot. That was last week...
So this week he says he bought a 5.0 last Friday, and over the weekend he put a Cobra R intake on it with GT-40 heads, and before he bolted on his imaginery parts he says he ran it at some drag strip and it went 13.5. So I told him to line up with my buddy's 5.0 which has full exhaust, gears, and an "E" cam...he says "I won't even waste my time." So I go..."oh yeah, how bout runnin my miata...for $100" and he's like "I don't know man...I gotta finish hooking up my nitrous first, then we'll talk." What a smacked ***. I don't understand the purpose of being such a bullshitter. Real easy solution...buy a car that's not fake, make it faster than it was when you bought it, race people and throw some money down, lose to a miata, pee your pants, cry your eyes out, and keep your mouth shut.
Lol, I know right? About the people talking about cars in the stages and ****. Whenever people saw my miata they would say something like, "what stage is it? 2 or 3?" I always had the same blank stare whenever people say stuff like this.

As for talking bullshit.... I have a friend (who I don't really like or consider my friend, but he is friends with my friends.... for some reason) who is the biggest **** talker ever. He has a 06 gt with a whipple supercharger. He thought he was the **** when he had just a tune, intake and exhaust on his mustang. (So you can imagine what a supercharger did to his ego...)

First off, he doesn't pay for ****... second off he doesn't know ****..... and third off he can't drive for **** ( and its AUTOMATIC )

He got the whipple put on and I love to mess with his mind. I'll say "ya man you run any new Z06's yet?" He'll say something like ya, I'm right at their door till like 160. His car is a ******* boat... like 3700 lbs. with around 440 whp. My 320 whp MR2 would tear him a new one. A Z06 would absolutely rape him.

There's never a "stage" when you are DIY - it's never completely done!

Back in my nitrous days I could smoke a V-6 mustang pretty hard with a 50 shot.

I disagree, calling them stage 1/2/3/X/blah/blah is stupid, but there are definitely stages or progression through a DIY build.

I think there are about 2 stages. "Working" and "Broken".

Haha. Reminds me of days gone with DSM's.

I was thinking more along the lines of 5psi, 10psi, 15, etc, and all the supporting mods required.

If you didn't post it, I was going to. When an SRT4 owner talks about "stages", they mean the Mopar upgrade packages, which are offered in stages.

Drewkeen: The 04-05 got only the S1 injectors, but not the S1 PCM.

You forgot the first (and last) stage: all torn apart in the garage.

Some brands have stages of different things. However, it makes no sense if you dont know anything about the car. A better simple question would be "how much boost?"

Completely agree Wes. I've run into a lot of ricers who say "Oh you got a turbo? What stage?". My answer usually depends on my mood, but I'll either explain why "stage" is the wrong term, or I'll simply say "stage 4 and a half".

However, if this guy is like the "typical" mustang owner, he will do some mods, and want to race me again.

No, no, no... my previous Miata was a manual red '96, my sig says '95(my current miata). I haven't even gotten the '95 on the road yet, but I agree it is prolly an 18 sec car.

Only in a Miata, when you have something go BOOM do you think to yourself,

"Please be the tranny, please be the tranny, not the rearend."

pretty sad when 3 transmissions = 1 torsen

haha yeah, I hadnt really thought about it. i havent priced either but it would suck to blow the rear end. If i did, hopefully the torsen would be okay and i could drop some of those 3.308 gears in it.
