RAM R/T
Acceleration to mph
0-60 5.7
0-100 16.8
Curb weight 4779 lb
Quarter mile 14.4 sec @ 93.4 mph

2011 Camaro (v6)
0-60 6.1
0-100 14.9
Curb weight 3800 lb
Quarter mile 14.5 sec @ 98.2 mph

2011 Mustang (v6)
0-60 6.2
0-100 15.4
Curb weight 3513 lb
Quarter mile 14.5 sec @ 97.3 mph

Doesn't beat this one, but pretty close (even though the R/T is $20,000 cheaper and a good 1,000 lbs heavier)
2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe Anniversary Edition
Base Price $51,415
Engine 3.7L/330-hp /270-lb-ft DOHC 24-valve V-6
Transmission 7-speed automatic
Curb weight 3694 lb
0-60 mph 5.4 sec
Quarter mile 13.9 sec @ 101.3 mph


Bottom line, This thread is about a guy wanting to make his express look kinda like a R/T, but for you others that are hard up on comparing a R/T to $40-$120+ thousand dollar sports cars or bikes that weight less then a 1,000lbs and have 600cc- 1400cc. You can't compare something stock for stock due to they are in two totally different realms, here's some good comparisons. (look above) Guy's on here may want their trucks to be fast or at least faster then stock and enjoy seeing how fast they can make them. They may even enjoy the challenge of beefing them up enough to compete with other vehicles that they normally wouldn't be able to run with. It's all fun and games. But to cut this short, if you got a mouth to run about this or that, take it to a private message and stop hijacking this man's thread.....
Thank you
Jimmy

Yep, Agreed. I say let the dude do what he wants to his truck and give him pointers and cudos for it as well. Personally, I would like to see what he does to his truck myself.

Thank you for the comments! I got the spacers from ground force so that my truck can be level now and I will be installing them this weekend. Also my headlights will be here on Monday so I will start installing those as soon as I get them. My biggest purchase so far are the 22" R/T wheels, I'm hoping to have those soon. As far as next mods I'm looking to get some more power out of this truck. I have always like K&N intakes and magnaflow exhaust kits. I also want the American racing header kit with high flow cats and y pipe. Does anyone have any suggestions on what is best on these trucks? Will headers void my warranty?

As far as the k&n wait till nov i can get them for like 150$ and i think headers will void your warranty not really sure if they even make them for the 4th gen but i have not looked because of the warrenty(the way shit has been breaking last few weeks ) im not losing that lol.As far as the exh i have a magnaflow on it it and it sounds beast Question do the headers your looking at delete any 02 sensor and as far as the high flow cats do they delete any either. We have 2 02 sensors on each side for a total of 4 02 sensors nice huh.But heres my take any performence mod you do if the truck breaks the dealer can give you a bunch of b/s about it you just have to be willing to take the chance.

OK ..got it...a sports car is now considered something with a 6 cyl in it????? REALLY a 6 cylinder mustang ..you cant be serious????..I would hope that it is faster than a 6 cylinder. And my wifes 09 g35 drills my r/t. So i rest my case, it wont beat any real 8 cylinder sports cars. Like what was said, its just a truck that will always be slow.

Man, I would love to get those headers but at $1600bucks, they'll have to wait. If you end up getting them, you'll have to post up a sound clip of the truck with them...I wonder if you could remove your entire factory exhaust (setting it aside) and put a new complete aftermarket exhaust with ARH on the truck and if you ever had any major issues with the engine or power train, you could just reinstall the factory setup so not to void the warranty???

Dude you know how much work that would be lol and what if you broke down away from home likr 100 miles lol get it towed home for like 300 then swap out the exhaust lol no thank you ill wait on that stuff. And ya i think it will void your warranty /as soon as my is up the engine is coming out rebuilding it and ive got some killer ideas.
