1989 Mustang LX (Modified)
vs.
1998 Dodge Viper GTS


     Even if you are a die hard Ford fan, you would have to admit the Dodge Viper is a very amazing machine. The Viper GTS is definitely a force to be reckoned with. The Viper GTS also carries a price, roughly $69,000.
 
     To compete with a car like this, I have added a stroker kit to this list of modifications for the Mustang LX. The car in this test still uses 245/45/16 mounted on the stock wheels.
