0-60

How do you get the fastest 0-60 in a v6 manual mustang? how high should rpms be in each gear? And tips? tricks? Anything to get up to the fastest 0-60 time in a v6.

Techniques I've been thinking about mods but I plan on selling my car in the near future to get a GT. so I'm not really trying to waste $350+ for performance parts. Because in the long run it'll still be a v6

well a bigger rear diff gear ratio. for example, 3.73s, 4.10s, these are common gear swaps. In order to perform this your v6 needs what's called a T-Lok or limited slip differental (LSD). Have you ever noticed how when attempting a burnout only one wheel spins? This is because you have what is called an open differental which transfers all the power to one wheel. The LSD will allow both wheels to spin while transferring power to both wheels evenly. Your car is equipped with a 7.5" rear axle while the GTs are equipped with an 8.8". If found cheaper, I would grab my hands on an 8.8 rear but purchasing a limited slip differental is another route if you cannot find one. the 7.5 will hold just fine. Also you having a manual, I would recommend 4.10s. Hope this helped. If you have anymore questions ask away!

So what's the difference between an LSD and a locked differential?
