Soccerluvr4 ran a 14.1 his first time at the track, in a pretty high mileage car...

Every stock 2v I have seen is stupid slow. Never seen someone run 13's with a stock 2v.

I never had mine at the track. But it did not wake up until exhaust/ Bolton's/ tune. Now when my wife had her 3.7 it was impressive stock. Both autos also

Mine feels slow.
I have a 5,000 pound F-250 with a built big block that is probably slightly faster than my car for the first few hundred feet anyway.

I might get a mid-low 13 in mine as it sits but that's after gears/tires/suspension/exhaust etc...

I'm honestly really starting to consider whether I want to spend the $$$ on a blower next year and the fuel system to go with it which is going to be in the $4k range or sell the car next spring after I enjoy it this year and put that $$$ and the $4k I was giong to spend towards something that is going to start off with a solid 300+ to the wheels like 4V or even a F body. Only thing stopping me this year is finances and also because I have a hard time thinking I'd find anything half as clean as my 98 in the price range I'm looking at. Also I just got it looking how I want it.

14.2 actually, and that was 4 days after owning the car, also my only 4 days of driving stick. And I was getting around a 2.3-.4 60 foot all night. I'm sure with the tune, suspension, and 4.10s I'll be mid 13s at least. But I can also agree a stock 2v is slow lol

Throw a slick on there and you will get better than a mid 13 for sure.

My transmission refuses to shift to 3rd under load though. That's my biggest problem. It feels like there is a wall there. So it takes a second before it lets me go into gear. If I were to get track tires it would be autocross tires though cause that's what I do more.

3.7's are NOT "over a second faster at the track"... I think that you have that time confused with the Coyote powered cars.



A stock PI New Edge GT will do a 13.9 quarter mile.

A stock 2013 V-6 will do a 13.7 quarter mile.



It looks like the 3.7 has a 4/10ths better 0-60 time, though.

Another fun fact: The 3.7 has 20 ft/lb LESS torque than a 2V 4.6.



If that's not a drivers race then I don't know what would be...

+1... There's also a good amount of threads where people have posted time slips of breaking into 13's with stock 2v... Like I said before... Drivers race.

on that video of the 0-60 on both, it looked like the gt had a misfire or something around 50mph. I don't know anything about the older mustangs but I would say the cop's you are talking about are the coils. That's what I would say is wrong, especially since you say its hard to start when hot. That is a typical coil pack symptom.

It did. It stumbled at 50. cop is Coil On Plug.
Im sure they could use some replacing, but Im not getting a misfire code.

I want to replace them, however, I dont want to buy 8 oem cops ($$$). I have scoured the net trying to find a way to accuratly test them to find which ones are bad, but am having no luck.

I have tried the trick where you unplug them one at a time while idleing to see if one is dead, but they are all working at idle.

I haven't ohm tested them because they all work at idle, so that test is useless.

I cleaned and regreased them (correctly) and rearranged them on install, but no real difference.

I have seen people buy 1 coil, and swap it out for each coil until they find the bad one.

I wish it was like my FX4. I can monitor each one with my scanner on that truck.

Could someone who tunes not find out what cylinder is not firing right? I had a coil pack go bad on a cavalier and when it got hot it would not start. Started fine when cold. Does its just start acting bad when warmed up? Does it seem to run better when cold?

It starts better when cold, but I haven't had alot of hot starts in the past few days after completing my tune up. So I really cant say. It runs pretty much the same all the time, but it gets these temporary surges of power and smoothness that come and go out of nowhere... I wish I could keep it in surge mode.
