    Unless it was an '03 Cobra

    I don't know what anyone is thinking but the '06 Mustang Gt's do not pop off 170+ mph in factory form. Infact just read, top speed 143mph on '06 Mustang GT. So I don't know what that guy did but 143 to over 170 is a pretty large difference from multiple tests, and my personal expierience in a 100 mile straight stretch of hiway.

    And just to clarify I have nothing against the Mustang personally I do respect the car, even though I do not like them, and I will never own one.
    The article was about testing, 01 WS6 M6 Trans am. Who said anything about Fords

    im thinking if you got your mustang up on jack stands topping your car out in the garage the ding dong doing it needs to go ahead and close the garage door and do us all a favor. i have put the needle to the post a few times at least i know it goes 150 theres still 2600 rpm left uhhhh im not good at math george!

    a guy tested his car with a tester on mustang forums and he hit 176mph on a straight highway with his 2006 mustang GT!

    l think LS1s should go at least 170mph too.
    There is no way a stock Mustang ran 176 mph. An 06 Mustang would need at least 500 hp to go that fast. Probably more. Wind drag increases a lot at those speeds and the new stang is a brick.

    Not with the M6.
    If you had the power to top out 6th gear....277 MPH.

    Correct.
    That is just what the car could do.

    Personally, I don't take mine over what it will trap in the 1/4 mile.

    Depends on where I am.
    Running at Bandimere I trap 115-116.

    Running at sea level it should be more like 125-126.
    The car isn't limited by any means, I just don't think finding the actual top speed is that exciting. I prefer acceleration.

    My buddy has a 05 and 06 roush stage two, neither one of them will outrun my relatively stock 01 ws6. I know he tries all the time.

    Depends on the tranny as well.

    Where did you see this? I'd like to see it for myself.

    Also, the cars are not limited to 168. They are limited to 160. The Z rated tires are only rated for 160.

    wont the speedo read that becuase of tire deformation at high speed..or maybe the speedo just isn't calibrated well...new gears?

    A stock speedo isn't accurate at those speeds.

    And as mentioned...a car with Z rated tires is limited at 160 MPH. I can even prove it with a screen shot of the stock program if needed.

    Not sure what you mean by that.
    Tire wise??

    I believe the T/A's all had Z-rated tires.
    But I could easily be wrong on that one. Not sure what kind of tires came on those cars with the 16" wheels.
