• Cobb Stage 2 tuned BMW 335i races a tuned Boss Mustang 5.0 from a stop

      Here we have three runs between a Cobb Stage 2 tuned BMW 335i and a tuned Boss Mustang from a stop. The first run has both cars approaching a light and the Boss gets on it first and pulls steadily away. On the second run there appears to be some miscommunication during the honks and the 335i gets a large jump with the Boss being unable to run it down. The third run seems to be the cleanest with a nice launch from the 335i but the Boss makes up ground before the 335i lets off.

      The Mustang seems to be the faster car up top but we are unsure what mods are on it or if the 335i has any additional bolt ons. Both are definitely quick and the Mustang's V8 sounds great.

        Define FBO 5.0 cause I find this a little hard to believe unless you were gutted on meth/racegas.

        Do we know who owns the 335i? Curious if its really a stage 2 only car, since they are typically not that impressive. Kinda surprised how well the 335i did in all honesty.

        Y surprised? My stage 2 135 trapped 117. That boss should be around 119

        Stage 2 is a Tune + DPs for COBB (no FMIC, so it's not an FBO car). Think I said it earlier, but I'd also like to know whether or not it's been ProTune'd or is using the OTS Maps

        Like benzy said, stage 1 +fmic has shown better numbers than stage 2 OTS numbers. If its truly fully bolted, than it adds up.

        Im just telling you what the guy told me..he asked me what I had, I told him..I asked him, and he said everything except a supercharger..you dont have to belive it, doesnt change the fact that it happened..I have no reason to lie on a internet forum to a bunch of people I dont know lol..I dont know about other 335's, but my FBO 335 with Cobb stage 2+ was damn fast..maybe it was a factory freak, I dont know..but that $#@!er was fast

        To beat 5.0's you need E50 and meth. We have 5 of them at every meet.

        +1, I pulled my friends new boss 302 before it was broken in. I think now that it is broken in, it would be pretty close with me losing by only a little bit. I also pulled on a new 2011 5.0 with just exhaust and tune. Both drivers can drive well. I do not run meth, but i was on a full tank of 93 octane with a 20% mix of e85 for both races.

        Depends on what they have. An intake, tune and catback 5.0 managed a 12.6@114mph here at PBIR while on the same day I went 12.4@117mph with just an off the shelf Stage 2+, FMIC and downpipes on 93 octane. Its more like a drivers race IMO.

        Im sorry but we have 5+ 5.0's at our bi-weekly meet and I know how fast they are and I know what hp I make (433/499) and I know how much i beat them, I also know what I had done when I lost to them.

        You have to be making over 400whp to beat a 5.0

        If they have more than basic bolt ons, then obviously we would need more mods as they obviously respond better to mods. This is a 5.0 at my local track running with CAI, exhaust and a tune against a E92 M3.

        A Tune+Meth (or E85) or FBO COBB with Shelf Maps could beat an M3 with just a tune + exhaust, so it's 100% believable that a ProTuned N54 could keep up (and even beat) an Coyote Mustang with basic bolt-ons

        12.69? I went faster bone stock and with the same exact mods went 12.1...it's on video against lm and has been posted many times.
