    BMW 335i 410rwhp (JB3, Intake, DP, 109, catback) vs 5.0 Mustang GT 420rwhp (Intake, full exhaust, tune, 3.73)

    Who would win?


    I believe the 335i would pull off a win, but I'd like to hear some real life experiences as anything on paper is all theoretical.

    we did this race with our shop 335i and it does win by a healthy dose

    also the 335i is neck and neck with a 525hp cobra until 4th gear where cobra beats it by only one - two cars.

    Not buying that. How far a race? I suspect great 335i driver and awful COBRA DRIVER.

    Get a video of that will you?

    335's run stout with bolt ons and a reflash but by NO means is it running good enough to run neck and neck with a 525 cobra

    Our 335i put down 438hp and 490tq to the wheels

    If you havent noticed European cars exceed putting power to the ground vs american cars with OLDER technology.

    I own a Cobra so im not hating on any one car, but dont be naive.

    AND IF ANYONE THINKS ITS BS, I WILL MEET ANY 500HP COBRA IN NY AREA FOR A COMPARISON, OR WE CAN EVEN TAKE IT TO THE TRACK, ATCO or ENGLISHTOWN

    Here are pics of the car, and video will be up very shortly

    i guarantee your Cobra gets walked by the 335i.

    And it just so happens that you are located in NY.

    Maybe you should back up what you say by real time comparison? We still got a month left before weather takes a big shit. Let me know.

    You're preaching to the choir, I know how expensive BMW's can get. I also know how nice they are.

    By the way where from "jap world" did you come from?

    i say edge to the 335 due to the massive tq advantage, but I presume its a drivers race..

    now, on to the aspect of 525whp cobra vs 438whp 335... i would expect the cobra to walk away as long as the guy operating the pedals and lever to have any idea what he is doing.

    a local around me had a 2dr 335, 08 model i believe. It had (according to him) charge pipes, intake, catless downpipe, magnaflow, and a reflash. Made over 400. I raced him with my 03 with only a 3" pulley (11psi), longtubes, open filter and SRA swap (times/power in sig). It was not very close. 40-140 and I would guess 3+ car lengths.

    I would put a bolt on 135 or 335 right even with the average cam or head/cam ls1 car.
