How difficult will it be??

Not sure how I want to do it, but I am thinking about getting a v6 mustang as a 2nd mustang for my stable. I like the thought of spending less on the car itself. My question is what will I need to do to be able to take out a pullied Lightning in the quarter? No major mods, no hp ratings.. just looking for an approx. Guessing that slapping a procharger on will be far from taking care of it.. so what will I need?

Re: How difficult will it be??

rear end gears, procharger would be a good start. What's the lightning run?

What year and is it a 5speed?

A procharger at 9psi, full bolt-ons, drag radials, drag suspension setup, and some weight reduction should get you in the low 13's if its a 99-04 5speed.

Re: How difficult will it be??

The 2nd generation Lightnings are quick, don't let the truck appearance (hence weight) fool you. A few magazine tests ran 13.6's in the 1320 in stock form, not bad for a 4670lb truck ...It takes some serious work to get a v6 mustang there...especially if it's an auto, a 94-98 would take some serious work as well.

Define "no major mods"...a pulley swap isn't considered a major mod and that will cause significant uppage in bewst.
