happy mustang owner x2

Last month I did not even have one mustang , now I have a 86 GT mustang conv and just traded my full size dodge ram in for a left over 2006 Premium Gt auto .. Before my truck days i was into Chevys and must say I am very impressed on the knowledge that is politely traded back and foruth.. I bought the 86 to play with , but now I must admitI cant wait to start tinkering with the 06.. My 99 Hugger Orange Z went 12'0s with bolt ons and high 10's on a 150 shot, could I duplicate those #'s on the 06... Thanks for letting me jabber...

Congrats on the acquisitions. Lots of mods to play with on the S197. 11s are easily within reach and if you get serious, 10s or even 9s are achievable.

Thanks for the quick reply , its nice to there is such a large brotherhood. These new 4.6 mod motors are like what the ls1's were a couple of years ago.. The 86 is all orginial with 105xxx miles and no rust with a new top, but it is only 200 hp compared to the 06 of 300 stock.. Its nice to know you can throw down some pretty serious #'s while still achieving a streetable powerplant... My one buddy has a 76 Stingray with a 434 small block that dynos at 823 on the motor on a engine dyno and 690 to the wheels, but that thing is anything but streetable.....

~475 rwhp is the generally accepted limit on a stock bottom end. With forged internals or a new shortblock, the sky's the limit. There are so many mods available for this car. I think you'll enjoy yourself!

So the stock crank and rods are good for 475-500 rwhp , I am sure it depends on the nature of your tune. With a auto and 3.31's with the normal bolt ons such as cold air, bama chips, Steeda udp, and a axle back could a mid to low 13 be possible?

Thanks..

The rods are a real weak point in this engine A low 13 or even a high 12 is entirely possible with the popular boltons.

Congrats, I had an 86GT, check my gallery, I had headers put on that thing, what a pain, they had to lift the engine up
It was my favorite next to my current 06.

Congrats on the new Stangs! Funny, it seems you can't have just one, they're addictive! Look forward to seeing/reading about upcoming mods.
