Default Safest/Best ways to get more GO for the SHOW

Own a 2007 mustang GT. Optionals include. hoodscoop,sidescoops, 22'inch rims.
Definitly have enough show, just need a little more GO.
How can i make my stock GT with an automatic tranny faster than a stock GT manual.
Was hoping by whatever means to get to 350rwhp. Is this possible and how?
Seeing how my stang is an automatic i automatically lose a lot of hp, almost 35-37hp which puts me stock at 257rwhp. Tips anyone?..

Not looking for heavy modifying. Just want to make it faster but still keep it simple and safe.
Due to lack of experienced "Tuners" where i am located (South America, Suriname, above brasil) i want to keep it simple just to be cautious.

You can do your own tune without a certified professional "tuner" doing it. Just buy a computerized tuner and maybe a CAI kit. The CAI will allow more air into the engine and the electronic tuner will compensate for the added air and tune for a higher octane.

More horses, pretty safe.

first off, lose the 22" rims................

second, auto's aren't THAT much slower than manuals.

third, manuals don't have 300rwhp stock....

all GTs have 300 hp @ the flywheel... @ the rear wheels the auto loses more than the manual due to additional friction. just add a s/c and you'll get 400+ RWHP.. added a Vortech H.O. S/C to my 5sp 06 and custom tune... [email protected] wheels = 500+ @ flywheel (estimate)

A BEAST I TELL YA!!!!! LOL

whatttttt.... automatics are almost ALWAYS faster than manuals. The human simply cannot shift and clutch nearly as quickly as an auto tranny.

even if it is a slight bit heavier and some more gears, it still is quite quick

oh yeah and the previous posts are correct

302 hp at crank, 245-255 (around) to wheels


if you have 257 thats a good engine and efficient powertrain

Actually, automatics are slower than manuals... but only if the driver has skill
You can drop the clutch and heel-toe shift in the turns... but I guess you guys in the mustangs don't hit the turns too much.
