I had a little fun with our new to us 07 vert today. I see in the first page of this thread that stock v6`s trap about 90 in a 1/4. I won`t make a track untill next spring but wanted an idea of what this one will do.
I used a GPS to check the speedo at 90. 3 MPH slow so I need 93 for a test run. Car is stock ( just a GT takeoff AB and a K&N filter) and 3/4 full of regular and the wife is with me.
First run on a flat, wide blacktop road went up in tire spin right rear. Rolled into the throttle for 3 runs. Waited a 1/2 hour and made 2 more. Threw out the best and worst. Average was 15.65.
By track time next year I will have CAI, Tune, .373`s tl and no wife in the car at the track. We probably won`t take it much further than that.
Not very scientific but should be in the ball park. I`m 68 and the wife a few years younger. I love this stuff and it scares the H out of her. I`ll suffer for a week for doing this while she was with me.
i dont have any timeslips to post because i just got my new setup and am currently breaking in my clutch, but i have a dyno sheet and list of mods i can share.
Power House inter cooled turbo kit @ 10.5 psi on a very conservative tune

Spec Stage 3+ clutch
TR-6060 transmission (1 of 4 in the world on a v6)

as soon as i get the clutch broken in im gonna head to the track, though on street tires os it will be interesting to see what times i get.
Went to the "Test & Tune" at Orlando Speed World on Friday 02/26/10 to test my new FRPP M9603M40 85mm cai. Ran a personal best of email@example.com with a 2.08 60ft. Backed it up with a firstname.lastname@example.org with a 2.09 60ft. Justins(VMP)new tune was also very impressive.

hey guys im going to the track for the first time soon and i have a few questions. i have an 05 mustang 4.0 manual with just an h pipe gt take off exhaust. my question is what rpms should i launch at and what rpms should i shift at? also i have 18" chrome saleen style rims with nitto nt555 275/40/18 in back and 245/35/18 in front. Would i have a better time with these or stock tires and rims?
