  2. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    Found my baseline stock dyno results, as well:
  3. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    Best I could do in the 1/8th, in stock trim, in my 2010 GT500 was 7.85@93mph. I’ll need to find the time slip to get the 60ft time, but I remember it was horrible. Something in the 1.9-2.0 range. Launching the ‘10-12 GT500’s from s dig on a non-drag radial tire is the challenge to getting respectable times.

    LOL!

    Thought you were buying Leslie’s ‘65?!
  6. 2020 Ford Shelby GT500

  7. Matt...anything you want to share?

    New GT500 is getting a 7-speed DCT built by Tremec, not the Ford A10. And the test you posted was for the ‘13-14 GT500 that made 660hp at the crank. ‘10-12 *only* made 540.

    Not that simple. Changing to the ‘13-14 lights requires a new rear bumper panel and lots of other associated parts. If you can live with the ‘10-11 taillights on the Camaro, the stock lights on the GT500 should be no problem. You can make a lot of mods for the money you’d spent making the taillight swap and putting non-factory striping on the car.

    Getting a 2010-2012 GT500 into the 650-675rwhp range on 93 octane pump gas is not very hard: Eaton GenII TVS blower 65mm throttle-body 2.8 upper pulley JLT CAI 56# fuel injectors tune This would be with the stock heat exchanger, fuel pumps, exhaust, etc.

    Silly question. They’ve never offered the modern GT500 with an automatic. That could change with the S550 platform though. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

    Great people.
  12. For Sale: 1965 Mustang Fastback

    Well, Leslie and I have decided it is time to get the ‘65 fastback restomod into the hands of someone who will truly enjoy it versus being pretty much the garage ornament it has become over the past few years. Vehicle Overview 1965 Mustang Fastback (original V8 car) Garage Kept since paint/bodywork was completed in 2005. Patriot Blue Pearl Clearcoat w/Diamond White Pearl racing stripes. 393 (351W-based) stroker engine, 9.5:1 CR (balanced and blueprinted shortblock), Edelbrock Victor Jr aluminum heads, Comp cams 270 retrofit had roller, CompCams roller rockers.

(No rust, just my terrible welding skills leaves much to be desired). Drivers side rear floor pan seems to have been patched by the previous owner and I never got around to doing anything about it. $34,000 OBO

  18. For Sale: 1965 Mustang Fastback

    It just needs to be on someone’s garage other than mine!
  19. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    Needs some foxbody 5.0 emblems on the fenders!
  20. NewestER DD 2012 GT500

    Congrats, Matt. That will be a fun little ride!
  21. Back in the game I guess..

    Some people cannot help living in the past and using outdated data to support a modern arguement. There was a guy online the other day suggesting old foxbody performance improvement modifications would have the same effect on a Coyote-powered S550.

    LOL!
  23. Random thought thread

    Considering the paint issues he openly described, this seems to be a fair price. Yes, you see ‘03-04 Cobras going for more, but they are usually heavily modded or pristine garage queens that seek top dollar. It’s at least worth checking out, IMO.
