GSX vs Mustang GT

I will soon be purchasing a 2nd gen mitsubishi GSX once i can find a 5 spd in good condition and bone stock. My friend owns a manual 2000 mustang gt with the 4.6 engine and an intake putting it at 280 hp is what he tells me. My question is can a 2nd gen GSX with a turbo upgrade and intake compete with this gt?

If you can drive it, yes

Are you buying a car just to compete with him?

It's not about having just a turbo upgrade but also having the supporting mods to bring the power out of the turbo. Just throwing a 50 trim and an intake into the car isn't gonna work. If you do everything correctly and have the budget to do it with you'll be able to compete against more then your friends slow mustang.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

Alright thanks for the advice. What would you say would be the best setup to increase the performance of the car and still make it suitable for a daily driver? Im 16 so this will only be my second car and in reply to the first question no im not buying it to compete with him. I decided on this car when i was looking for a more practical car than my camaro. I wanted something capable of being high performance, able to handle the weather conditions in my area as well as terrain, and still give me good gas milage. And the gsx fit what I was looking for perfectly.

I wouldn't go into saying the GSX is the most practical car.
