Well guys.
I know I will probably catch TONS of HEAT for creating this thread.
but I must say- I'm not to happy with Mustangs right now (well GT's anyways)
You see my signature...
well since then I have added...
K&N CAI
BBK TB and PLEN (P&Pd)
UD Pulleys
and just put on a o/r H pipe. (didn't want the X, due to deep sound of H)

and so I go to the track...
and my Time DID NOT CHANGE!
still running 13.6's (mid to high exactly the same)
my trap increased ONE mph on 2 runs.
and can't say well maybe its your driving this time compared to last... b/c I have an AUTO tranny.

I am just fed up, pissed off.

I have
4.30 Gears
LC Arms
Big Drag Radials
UD Pulleys
PLEN
TB
CAI
MIDPIPE
TUNER

every basic BOLT ON you can do to a GT. except Catback.
and I am still not even low 13's yet... that's SAD! for a "sports/muscle/whatever you want to call it" car.

I am gong to install the converter (2800 stall) and hopefully that will take me to low 13's.... but at this point in time I just don't even see that happening.

any comments/suggestions for me?
Ever had your car on the dyno? IMO, you should have done a stock baseline pull before the mods, then one after the mods. Sounds like you need a tune.

I've been busy with some sponsorship stuff, and pre race season stuff. I've kinda been MIA for a while. I'll be around.

Shifting quickly through the gears without letting up on the gas between shifts.

I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but NO part of racing you car is perfectly safe.
When you power shift you are basically pegging the limiter and putting ALOT of pressure on the tranny inbetween shifts. It is bad for the tranny, but it will help improve times. Just depends on how competitive you are I guess.

Ya you have a good point indeed on that one..., how long does that affect the life of the tranny?? and does almost everyone here do that? or just the ones who dont care about breakin their tranny? i was told powershifting a t-45 a couple times down the track and it screws up the Syncronizers not even knowing what powershifting was at the time...but i was just told not ever to do it...but now its ok? and wut kind of times does power shifting shave off..a couple tenths??

I heard powershifting is horrible and straneous on the tranny ...how do u keep it alive....abd BTW i dont know wut it is exactly plz explain....thanks and nice car and numbers by the way!!
Thanks.

Don't let up on the gas when you push the clutch in.
As far as what it does to the tranny, I'm sure it dosn't help things. But I can't see racing it any other way.
