392 vs Mustang 5.0 video

Just stumbled upon this highway pull video on Youtube.

Not sure I totally buy the "stock" label for the mustang considering at minimum the wheels/tires are clearly aftermarket with wider than stock rubber. Plus the Mustang had the inside lane...

What do you guys think?

I have a 2011 5.0, currently considering trading up for a new 392. Just want to point out, the whistle in the last video could definitely be from the '11 GT - even the stock intake, when recording from the front, sounds like a turbo whistle at high RPM; with an aftermarket intake, the sound is even more prominent. Just a theory, but, it could be because the factory 'cold air' pickup tube in the front bumper is such a small diameter - it might be causing the high pitch suction sound.
why would you trade? This thread has been quite entertaining.
Well, my needs just kind of suit the Challenger. I don't go to the track (be it drag or auto-x, etc) and so the weight of the car really isn't a concern. I mostly like to cruise, make some noise when I want to, maybe have a little go-fast fun every now and then, etc. I tend to take a lot of road trips - I've driven from North Carolina to Canada quite a few times since getting my 5.0. The Challenger does all of the things I personally like to do better than the Mustang. The Mustang is beautiful, but lacks the physical presence of the Challenger, both in size and appearance. While my Mustang does just fine for long trips, the Challenger seats are just flat out amazing. Basically, while the Mustang is a blast to drive flat out, I think the Challenger just has more sex/cruise appeal.
