    Man, that is one sweet ride. From the front fascia, to the blower, to the wheels, to the audio...killer! The only thing I would have done, given that I had enough money to trick out a Mustang, is get more torque out of it. But then, I don't know what a reasonable limit is for that engine, so you may be approaching it.

    Anyhoo, she looks great...and I know you'll love pulling up to those rice-mobiles at street lights. What'll she do 0-60 and the 1/4 in?

    Thanks!

    Yesterday at KCIR. 12.734 @ 113.8

    Keep in mind, that is torque at the wheels, so that is about 400tq at the flywheel. My number one issue now is traction, I could drift down the whole track. Next purchase will be a line lock so I can properly heat the Nitto's (I didn't want to power brake the car).

    Ok, so what's a line lock? And why didn't you want to power brake the car?

    Are you happy with your 1/4 time? If not, to what do you attribute the extra time? What are you planning on doing to correct it?

    I can see that that much power and torque could cause a problem with traction.

    A line lock allows you to engage only the front brakes, so you can do a tire smoking burnout without power braking and ruining your back brakes. This car is also a daily driver.

    I'm pretty happy with the time, but there is definitely room for improvement. I ran the 12.734 with a horrible 2.1 60 foot time because of spinning the tires. My goal is to get my tires to stick and get a better 60 foot time. Also, I'm still learning how to drive it. In April I'll be running at Heartland Park on a properly prepped track so it should be interesting.

    Hmm. I like the idea of a line lock. Seeing as how this is your DD (an awful nice one!), I assume the line lock can easily be disengaged so the rear brakes can be used at times? That's pretty cool.

    I've decided that my next car, assuming my Jeep lasts long enough to ba an all-weather DD for quite a few more years, will be (I hope) a 2000-2002 Trans-Am WS6 or Camaro SS. I would be looking to do with it just what you've done, but I would keep it naturally aspirated.

    Put the hurtin on some GTO/Camaro/Trans-ams today. :D

    R/T .216

    I've won my last 14/15 races. The one I lost, was by 5 THOUSANDTHS of a second; I rematched him and won by 5 hundredths of a second, those are the best races.

    Sub box is fully installed now, still waiting on Q-Logic to release the kickpanels to the public for the 2nd set of front speakers.

    Those are some respectable numbers. What's the 'R/T' mean?

    12.01 @118.92 ! Fastest stock-pullied Saleen Series VI SC in the country.

    Upgrades since last time:

    Went from Nitto drag radials to Mickey Thompson drag radials.
    Replaced mufflers with SLP Loudmouths.
    Odyssey battery.
    What passenger seat?

    ...and not a single company makes a front speaker kickpanel for the '05+ Stangs, WTF

    It's like you've taken an already pretty sweet Mustang and fed it nothing but raw meat and HGH for a year.

    Nice work! Barry Bonds would be jealous of your ride's transformation.

    Body kits add weight too.

    For every 100 pounds you drop, you pick up 1/10th of a second in the 1/4 mile.
