For an auto, you should definitely get a tune. You will notice a world of difference

Re: Auto stangers this ? is you

be thankful the 05+ gts have much better autos than the older ones... but the 5 spd is where its at. With all the bolts ons and a dyno you should be around 300rwhp~ 320rwtq

Re: Auto stangers this ? is you

Sometimes I wish I had a 5-speed, but if you ever plan to take the car to the drag every now and then, be glad you have an auto. Depending what you want to do to the car, I'd go with a KB for more power. I have the Saleen S/C in my car right now and some day I'll sell it and get a KB. As far as the auto trans, I've replace the TC with a 3 stage PI TC and had the trans rebuilt by Tony at Larry's Transmissions. He does mods to these things to make then stronger. He even replaces the input shaft with a stronger one he had made. My motor is still stock and one day I'll have Adam at ST Motorsports rebuild it. Currently I'm doing 421RWHP/409Tq (yes on a safe tune). I have 3:73 gears, some people go with the 4:10s. If you not a big drag racer and you worry about the gas prices, then the 3:73s is your choice.
I use to race my car, but the wife banned me from racing due to the high cost or repairs.

If you have myspace, you can check out my video's there.

Here's an old video with my son racing my 05. The other car has a whipple s/c, built motor, no drag tires and 20" wheels.

All the S197 mustangs in our group are all auto's.

I have an 06 GT vert with C&L racer cai, BBK tuned shortie headers, UPR off road X-pipe, Flowmaster axle back exhaust, FRPP 3.73 gears and a Diablo Predator/C&L 93 octane racer tune and the auto trans. With the 3.73 gears and the tune I can light up my BFG KDWs in 1st, bark them real good when the trany shifts into 2ond at 6200rpm and bark them again when shifting into 3rd. I'm putting 312rwhp on the ground and I think the car runs great and I give no quarter to comparably equipped sticks. One thing I like about autos is you never miss a shift and never burn up a clutch trying to get off the line.
