Default HORSEPOWER AND 1/4 MILE ESTIMATES

ok here's one for everybody that is trying to figure out what they would run in the 1/4 mile or how much horsepower they're putting down. remember this is only an estimator, i have found it to be fairly accurate but of course in these cases it's always a guess.


HORSEPOWER AND 1/4 MILE CALCULATOR

another useful calculator, courtesy of dochol01 HP by trap speed and ET


and here's a chart i've put together thanks to 88BlueGT



if anybody has some similar links or useful info that they would like to share, please send me a PM and they will be added to list above.

thank you[sm=smiley20.gif]

According to a ford "manufacturers motor vehicle specifications" document I have for 1993 Mustangs (got it from them back to help convert my '92 notch to '93 Cobra stuff for SCCA ESP class), a 1993 5.0 LX hatchback with a 5-speed had a curb mass of 3,096 pounds. They also list the 93 Cobra R as having a curb mass of 3050, so your curb mass is somewhere in that ballpark.

Hope this helps.
