I barely post at all since I have better things to do with my life then sit behind the computer arguing with people who obviously KNOW IT ALL.
The P51B has more then 510 crank HP, call 1-800-59-roush, press #3 for customer service, ask for Joe since he knows the P51 series the best, and ask what crank HP that car has. Anyone who believes blkcloud, call. The call is free, it'll only cost you a few minutes time.
But I agree...call and ask if you like.
Doing research on a car that only 51 were made is hard. You won't find magazine times on them, nor many videos of them racing.
I think youtube has 1 P51B model walking away from a Z06 and Callaway Corvette.
The A model was short on HP and (may have had) 510 crank but I doubt it. They were pig rich tuned and clogged the cats.
As for taking a GT and modding it, I agree 110%. It would be a sh!tload cheaper. I bought this car because of the story behind it, the fact that my now deceased Dad fought in that war, and the fact that there are only 51 of them...ever.
Talking about racing a Roush, most of them are either 427's or Stages 1,2 & 3. maybe pushing 445HP, or 390rwhp. Modded up with the CAI and smaller pulley on the M90 blower, probably 440rwhp. This is a completely different car and to compare it to a M90 equipped Roush is like me comparing a Z06 to a ZR1.
Once again, I am a GM man as well. I'm not against a Z06 and I loved mine. I'm still waiting for them to build the Z/28 and I'll own one of them too. I'm not trying to say this car is better then anything,
I'm just trying to inform the public that these cars are in fact seriously fast for a factory car.
Why in the world would you want to lambaste me for posting such? Its not like I'm threatening global nucler destruction for God's sake. Why would you take this so personally to waste your time posting negative attacks against me? Especially you blkcloud??
So there you go - that's why.
Blkcloud, being the racer you are, during my best run (and only run actually)in the Z and that was when I lived in Ohio was on a 74 degree day, I ran a 12.02 at 123.04mph. I couldn't shift the car and I only ran it once.
The best run with the P51 was 1.533@60', 4.609@330', and 7.068@ 1/8th trap speed was 97.48mph. I hit the rev limiter as I tried to run out the 1/8th in 3rd gear.
That's what it did, I really don't give a sh!t if you or anyone else believes it or not at this point.
Now make no mistake....I have no doubt a street-prepped P51B (or any other properly-modded) Mustang can (and have) run that kind of 60 ft and ET. I just don't believe that you did it with a bone-stock version.
All I was trying to do was post some info on an incredible car, whether it be Ford, Chevy, or Dodge.
Look at it this way....the words "I don't believe you" are the most sincere form of flattery. Whilst I am quite secure in my belief that you are full of it....if you are just as sure that you did what you say, then take it as a compliment.
Have a nice day.

Hey, btw..I checked out your photobucket pics, nice bike!
Maybe one day we can meet up and you can inspect the car closer. You're not too far away. I certainly would love to have you see the car for yourself, but I completely understand your hesitance with believing anything I said.

Funny thing is, I can remember all the stangs that've beaten me, but I can't remember all the stangs that I've beaten

Truth be told...so can I and I bet I could count them on 1 hand. I think my Trailblazer SS can run with most of them.
