If you’ve been following along throughout our 2011 V6 Mustang project, you know we left off with a respectable 12.47 1/4 mile pass at the end of Stage 4. That was a really good time for what we had into the car up until that point. It was even the fastest recorded 11-12 V6 pass for quite some time until Central Florida Motorsports and another privately owned 2011 V6 both pulled amazing times of 12.2 and 12.34, sending us back to the grind!
We hit the garage hard, with some help from Circle D Performance, PSI Performance, Procharger and a good set of slicks & skinny’s, we wanted 11’s… BADLY!
I will save most of the nitty-gritty details of Stage 5 for our friends at 5.0 Mustangs & Super Fords magazine (I’ll announce the issue soon), but I can say that both myself and Mike Wilson from our Bama Tuning Specialists were really impressed with the difference on the dyno.
Could we break that 11-second barrier at the track, though? Well… the video above says it all. Much thanks to everyone here at AM who hustled to get it done, Cecil County Dragway for not being scared of a little rain and everyone who followed our 2011 V6 Project and begged for more!
Pretty impressive. But what’s it gonna take to get into the 10’s? Sound off in the forums!
