Smile Street testing a Mustang GT PP1

I love my 6th gen Camaro SS 6MT, but recently I drove a Mustang GT with the PP1 6MT and the car was a joy to drive it hard. Strong push to the seat while accelerating, sweet exhaust sound and great handling with the PP1, also has great seating position and nice dash. I was surprised.

I recently test drove a gt pp2 and my cousins 2019 gt pp1 m6(this one extensively) and was surprised by how smooth and easy the shifter is. Obviously it's a less robust lighter duty trans but that comes with the advantage of it being very light and easy to the through the gears.

Also the power delivery between the lt1 and coyote is very noticeably different.

I like the Mustang, I just don't trust Ford to make it reliable.

Talking

After this driving experience. I'm convinced that for sure I would delete my Camaro's NPP muffler to have a similar exhaust sound experience.

I prefer the mustang 5.0s low rpm rumble, but at high rpm I prefer the lt1.

A non npp sounds better than a non npp Camaro across the board imo.

As an X owner of an 18 5.0 NON-PP and now an SS, I found the GT to be fairly sloppy when pushed. The rear end was disconnected from the front and would move around quite a bit. Decent amount of body roll and numb steering made for a less than engaging drive. The SS feels the exact opposite. Planted, confident and communicative. I really like my 5.0 but in driving it daily, the SS makes me smile WAY more. I'm sure the PP addresses some of the issues that a non-pp car has.

Pp2 definately, pp1 doesn't feel much different than a standard 5.0 with optional wheels and lower profile tires.
