    Yeah I read the motor trend write up on these and was amazed. 12.7 bone ass stock! This one pulled 12.6 but I am having a hard time believing that only drag tires brought it down almost a full sec. Idk, Ive seen stranger things I guess. Still gonna be some major competition though. Cant wait to see what Camaro will do about it. It still amazes me that Ford got so much more power outta just reworkin the 4.bitch

    Well for one they didn't rework the old 4.6 the 5.0 is an all new motor. Plus look what BMW did with the M3 and it is only a 4.4 liter V8. I think the new Mustang is one hell of a car with tons of potential once the aftermarket opens up.

    The new m3 is only a 4.0 liter v8. Its also the lightest production car v8 and makes 420hp and 309trq.

    hmmm, i could have swore that i read somewhere that they started with the current 4.6 and totally re-did it to get the 5.0, enough to call it "all new". i do know that they share the same bore centers and deck height. And I never said it wasnt bad ass cuz it is believe me... its about time ford pulled their head outta their asses and maned up for a change

    On the video they managed to get 12.6sec stock, then they added a tune, exhaust, and intake to dip into the 11s, still impressive for a 302!

    Just for the record the camaro has done the same thing, gone 11s with bolt ons and drag radials. The ls3 cars make 400-415whp with bolt ons and a tune.

    I have owned a lot of muscle/sports cars and I think the 2011 Mustang GT will be my next one. Might wait until 2012 just to see if they come out with a 302 Boss but not sure I can wait for something that might not happen.

    List of old cars

    1993 Mustang LX 5.0
    1996 Corvette LT4
    2000 Trans AM WS6
    2001 Mustang GT (Had to do it 0% financing and WS6 was a 600 dollar a month payment)
    2004 Dodge SRT-4
    2005 Pontiac GTO

    Still have the SRT-4 Stage 3 and the fastest out of all the cars listed. Then again it has the most mods.

    All of the cars list except the 93 LX 5.0 had a good amount of bolt on mods.

    All were fun cars but I get bored easy and change cars more than I should.

    I think I would end up keeping the 2011 Mustang for a while but it would not stay stock for long.

    I don't think they'll have the modding potential due to almost being at their limits. I mean there is not much to be gained in the exhaust department, since Ford went with a nice headers and exhaust setup. They do have some room for improvement in the air intake area, but I don't think they can be expanded as much as we thought at first. They are not able to take a lot of boost apparently (from what I'm hearing/reading about the internals being powder forged etc) and there is a video over on ls1 tech where one gets walked by a stock 02 SS ls1! Same guy owns both cars, and other than leaving traction control on, and it not being broke in it was a fair race as you could expect. Still nice and stout rides though, can't wait to run into one I may not win, but just want to hear/see it in action, in person.

    Definitely a nice car.

    Ford finally got it right this time around. They could have just as easily bored out the 4.6 to a 5.0 so it had around 350HP and called it a day. People would still be all about that. But instead they did it right - totally new engine from the ground up, 4 valve heads instead of the stupid 3 valves, 6 speed manual, and available Brembo brakes with 19" wheels. That makes all the difference.

    I wouldn't mind having one myself. Those track times are very impressive as well, 11's at 118MPH with bolt ons is quite fast.

    11's with bolt on's is fast, but these cars can't have too much room for improvement. People think so, but like oddwraith said they come with tuned headers, true duals, and most importantly 11:1 compression. You won't be able to throw too much boost to it or it will blow up. If you try a cam swap you have 4 cams to pay for...

    I'm just skeptical
