11's stock are NOT happening..
I don't care if tha cam in there gives a foot of lift..
I have yet to see one N/A 3800 running sub high-mid 13's...
That's all the N/A bolt ons you can throw @ it too and the car is hollow..lol

I'm sure some of those cars run those times no doubt,,,and could be naturally aspirated for sure. I mainly question the "BOLT ON" nature of which the list was posted for. Since that was the original discussion as to what's needed to run with these new 5.0's.

Take your win as a teaser. You wont have to look long. Stang guys like to run too. If you don't find one...one will find you. You did it right though, don't be dumb about it, you had a passenger and no where to runem out. Not worth wrekin your ride or your hide.

Its hard to stop modding your ride once you start. Like any other addiction I guess. We have all built a vehicle past what we know to be reasonable. Then we go to far and try to return it to a more drivable car. I did it with a bike years ago. After a while no one wants to run you except ex pro-stockers. I am currently de-tuning our Y2K from a nitrous track car to twin turbo with street manners. All I am saying is a "bolt ons" street car is a very loose interpretation of what you can tolerate as an around town cruiser.

I never got to race one of these yet. I see them every now and then along major highways up my way. Pretty nice, I'm guessin there fast never seen anyone really get on one of them but i read the specs and know what the new 2010-2011 5.0 can do.
Its funny because the only person i know who has one is my moms friend i'm tempted to ask her to race me. I'm just so curious to see how my car holds up to one of them in a straight line. I'm pretty confident my car will come out ontop against a stock 2011 GT.
PS: I'd never ask her though. Its just ass da nine drivin fast with a girl in the car unless your like back in an industrial park or somthing just havin fun. Then to go ahead and challenge her to a race lol i'd feel like a lowlife doin it.

I ran the 11's and consistent low 12's with just a 3.73 gear swap.

Yea i understand. Maybe it's just because 11's up here are really sweet street cars with some work, like the Luos trans am.
Come up here you'll be in the 13's haha

I'm still impressed that it took Ford 9 years to beat the LS1 F-body with a NA car.
04-17-2011, 04:16 PM #116
Eh, that argument can go back and forth. Technically the 03-04 Mach 1's would give any 4th gen Fbody a good run for it's money so we could shorten that 9 years down to what,,,,,,5???
I believe the real issue is that it's not that ford "couldn't" make the mustang faster in NA form,,,because they had the capabilities for sure. I believe it's more of a consumer perspective. I think Ford chose to keep the mustang a more afforable platform. Because of that the mustang outsold the F-bodies. I think that goes to show it doesn't have to be the fastest rear wheel drive V8 platform out there to be popular.
Ya the Fbody was faster for a while,,,but look at how much it cost new compared to a similarly equipped mustang. Big difference.

How do u think i'll hold up?? I'm a pretty good driver when it comes down to it I ran a 12.9 spinnin and pedalin 1st and 2nd gear cuz of my 255s.

With the mods you have you should do pretty good with one but like i said its hard to figure it out till you race one. Ive heard people pull on it but my pull was slight. When i was in 3rd i hardly pulled and then got into 4th and seemed i slightly pulled faster but not by much at all. My car does really well at higher speeds but the traffic didnt let us go any higher. Im running a 2 1/2 ypipe with the stock diameter pipes, i do have an exhaust cut out and so on. The guy told me if we raced a little longer i would've pulled on him harder. He was a cool guy and was shocked i was able to pull on it, i told him i was shocked too lol.

Wow thats a pretty good race. Its really a good video especially for me to watch, your exhaust is almost the same size as stock piping. Not sure exactly what else is done to your car but sounded mostly stock. Its tough to say how i'd pull on one I'm sure about the same as u did, who knows. Hopefully I can beat one because I'm really hypeing shit up around here getting people to find me a money run with a 2011 GT only. lol
This was definitely helpful.
