Cool, let's emasculate the Mustang as much as possible so they lose the male market like they did in the 90s!

Real world 0-60s

Many sources end up regurgitating claims given out by the manufacturers. Many times these numbers are inflated or done under perfect conditions that we never see in the real world. I started coming...

So it appears to be a quality control issue then.

Regardless, they are dumping MS for a reason.

Anyway, I'll try to update and see if that helps.

They are both technically right. It's recommended to use 87 at a minimum, but if you want full performance, you need premium. If someone isn't worried about performance and just wants fuel savings,...

Most dealerships will put 87 in cars if they can get away with it, so don't bet on it never having 87 put in it. I think the GT500 is the only car they actually fill up with premium.

I lied. After driving the car for a distance, the drone is getting obnoxious. Any idea how to reduce that? Once I put it in 6th, it drones non-stop. Other gears aren't bad
