My squirter-clad '12 GT makes 439 horses at the flywheel on no mods other than a procal tune, according to the dragstrip dyno.
The 11-12 cars had no Selectshift for the auto, the 13+ did, iirc.
Thanx for the info. It's starting to look like I might as well buy a 2014! The "select shift" is a nice touch on an auto for when you want to paly with the gears! I'm trying to figure out if I can live with an automatic! My wife and I would probably get more use out of the Mustang with one. If I don't get an automatic it makes less sense to sell my '08 and buy a 5.0L. It's a lot of extra money just to pick up horsepower. I'd have the cost of a new GT Premium, plus the cost of putting an Roush Supercharger on it! The old '08 only has 10K miles on it! If I keep it, I've already got 460 H.P., and the "Old School" look!
Question: In 2013 was it on the gear shift selector like the 2014?
I think I'm just spoiled and should stick to what I've got!
