The age old battle between Chevrolet and Ford will end no time soon, and we love it! And within that rivalry, none is stronger than that of the Camaro vs Mustang. These two pony cars are the best selling of all time and have fought for dominance on the track, on the street, and in the hearts and minds of people all over the world. But what happens if you take the actual car out of the equation? What if you only put their engines into a head to head battle? What if you took the power and torque of Chevrolet’s LS3 and put it up against the high winding insanity that is the famed 5.0 Coyote?
Watch below to see how they stack up, both stock AND with some modifications, thanks to Richard Holdener’s always entertaining and educational dyno video.
LS3 CAMARO VS COYOTE MUSTANG-WHO WINS? 5.0L DOHC 4-VALVE VVT VS 6.2L LS3-WHICH ONE MAKES MORE POWER? DISPLACEMENT VS TECHNOLOGY-WHO YOU GOT? BACK IN 2011, FORD INTRODUCED THE VERY TRICK 5.0L COYOTE, COMPLETE WITH 4-VALVE HEADS, VARIABLE CAM TMING (VVT). HIGH COMPRESSION AND LONG-RUNNER INTAKE TO REPLACE THE TIRED 4.6L 3V. THE QUESTION IS, WAS THIS MOTOR ENOUGH TO DO BATTLE WITH THE MUCH BIGGER, 6.2L LS3? THE LS3 FEATURED HIGH COMPRESSION, HIGH-FLOW, REC PORT HEADS AND ARGUABLY THE BEST FACTORY LS INTAKE EVER OFFERED. HOW DO THE TWO MOTORS COMPARE IN STOCK TRIM ON THE DYNO, THEN AFTER A FEW MODS?
