M4 competition vs Mustang GT 10 speed

Found this video online because i been on a G8x video binge lately and came across this.

Stock M4 comp vs '20 GT 10 speed auto with intake, no cats, and a tune.

The M4 actually started to pull from 135 or so but basically about even the entire race, maybe the mustang got the M4 by half a car but the aerodynamics of the M4 might have caused it to pull at 135?




Would anyone agree the M4 is stock or perhaps a tune?

I will be honest, this video does not make sense to me…Either that mustang has many more mods or the M4 was in Comfort mode and his passenger weighed 350lbs…

The guy who posted the video said in the comments the M4 has a JB4 but in the video it said the M4 was stock.

There is no way a mustang with just an intake and a tune will run even with a JB4 M3/M4.

So it's safe to say the M4 was stock?

Let me guess, somewhere in the comments there is somebody who has said “the mustang is actually the winner here as it’s only 30k and the m4 is easily double that!!”

My manual GT felt just as fast, and much moreso below about 3k rpm than my stock M3 and it just had headers and a tune. It was maybe sliiiiiiightly less powerful at the very top end, but it’s close feeing. The A10 is a great transmission and with a tune the 18+ GT’s can make great power.

I didn't read every single comment but the comment that struck me the most was that the video poster said the car had a JB4, that's why it hung with the modified GT. And that a stock M4 wouldn't be able to do that.

I know BMW underrates their M cars, or maybe all cars so i'm guessing the M3/M4's are a lot faster than people think.

I thought that race was about right. Stock M4C vs slightly modified GT.

But now they wanna change their tune so to speak and say the M4 had a JB4. There's another video of another M4, with a JB4 and it hung with a hellcat redeye.

I know, my friend has an 18 GT with the 10 speed. It's incredible.

But i'm just trying to find out if people think the M4 in the video was actually stock or it had a JB4, given what they saw from the video.

I think so. But it looks like that M4C DID get a JB4 but not during the video in question.

When the M4C got the JB4, as shown in a later video, it was racing a hellcat redeye and was pretty much neck and neck. That's hugely impressive for just a tune.

So i can't see how people think the M4C has a JB4 in the video in the original post. I think if the M4C did have a JB4, it would have walked that mustang.

That's what i thought too.

But some people swear it's not a stock M4C because it's keeping up with cars with more power lol.
