Depending on your driving ability, powershifting?, track prep, how aggressive you are willing to launch the car, you could run low 13's. Be careful though MT's have no problems snapping a stock axle.

Best of luck

Yes, the IRS is more fragile, but trust me a hard launch in a 3500 lb mustang with good track prep and a quality DR can snap an axle easily. Not ment to worry you just a heads up. It would be real easy to throw a set of Moser 31 splines in there while you are getting the gears done. Sounds like you are wanting to run hard so, food for thought.
