Lol. Well at least its still easy to spot the internet drag racers. I wish you all the best of luck... you better be into the low 11s with that thing to back up the talk if not faster.

Well at least it's easy to spot those who have no knowledge of what they speak.

Yep see what I again did there? You speak without any knowledge of my car.

Lol yeah really. My hp is better than your hp so I'm gonna win for sure. Says every person who has never spent time at a legit track.

Not saying there aren't Cyclones out there that are fast as hell but if you think you'll be at 500hp and reliable and running low 11s or 10s for less than a Coyote you're in for a rude awakening.

And your car is a 12 Cyclone with bolt ons, looks like at least some suspension and you are doing a LPF install. And a stick shift which will automatically put you at a disadvantage vs the A6 cars at the track.

Have you done any research at all? There's turbo cyclones in the 10s on a stock sealed motor. There's been cyclones pushing over 600whp on a stock motor. 500whp is a reliable power level. And I'm far from the first one to aim for that goal. Similar lpf cars have easily cracked over 500whp while still on a stock fuel pump. Seriously you need to do your research.

Oh and if you take out all the mods that I would've done on a coyote anyway then I'm actually a few grand under what a coyote would've cost me when I bought my car. As for legit track actually a manual is still better on a legit track than a non dct auto. Now drag strip yes I'm at a slight disadvantage especially since my car is setup a bit more for handling. But seriously do some research. It shows you know nothing about the capabilities if cyclones.

I know plenty about what they are capable of. But "doing your research" and "there are guys in the 10s" is different than actually YOU doing it or seeing it done locally at your track. Like I said, wish you all the best. At the end of the day the Coyote that will cost the same or less than a Turbo LPF 6 can just put a 200 shot on for cheap.

And at the drag strip at 500hp level you will not be at a "slight" disadvantage vs a properly setup automatic... try half a second.

Yet I just did an lpf cyclone for less than I could've bought a coyote for. Odd. And you can keep waiting on the 1/4 slip. Nearest strip is 3 hours from savannah. Now Roebling Road is 20 min away and I'll definitely be at that track.

Lol so what your saying is a car that's setup for road racing with a manual will be slower in the 1/4 than an automatic with a drag setup and a higher rpm stall?
Gee wouldn't of ever have guess that!

This is my 14th mustang and my 9th turbo car. With the last one being a turbo ls1 camaro setup for the 1/4. This isn't my first rodeo and it won't be my last.

So what have we learned?

A cyclone with a turbo kit can indeed be cheaper the a stock coyote.

A cyclone with a turbo kit can indeed make more power than a bolt on coyote (and even one with a moderate to aggressive shot of nitrous).

A cyclone with a stock engine stock trans and stock suspension can run 10s.

Has mine? No it's just now starting to go together with dyno tuning in 2 weeks. But it's been done and obviously can be done.

With that I'm done as you haven't even looked into what these cars can and have done.

Oh good another street racer that has no idea what their cars actually would run on a properly prepped track... Like I said GL dude. I know what these cars have done on the internet, its pretty easy to google. IRL and how common these cars are, different story.

Street racer? I just said Roebling Road. Apparently you can't research or read.

It's all beside the point anyway as you said no a cyclone can't. And yet they have numerous times. Doesn't matter how many times you say no or try to insist they can't when they already have.

Roebling Road es un hipĆ³dromo, Sr. Scotty.

Scotty is in Spain, Bastard, sometimes you need to translate.

While adding boost to a 3.7 is certainly a welcome change from the multitudes of exhaust-tune-wheels Mustangs on the road, I think that it becomes more difficult to justify the economics of modifications such as that, when you can buy a new GT that has 460-475 hp.
Along with the fact that, typically, when you sell a highly modified car, you only get back pennies on the dollar of your investment.
Not trying to disrespect what you are doing, quite the opposite, I'm always amazed at the power that the 3.7 can make. One of the forum members is close to being in the tens! And it is the true spirit of hot rodding.
It's just that technology has moved so quickly in the past decade, that what may have been a good idea a couple of years ago, may not seem as attractive in the current day.

I love what the new gt's can do. Their price tag? Not so much. And while I miss the v8 sound this little six has surprised me. I have no doubt it'll be able to run neck to neck with my old tc76 camaro.

The guy I got this kit from ran 11.1 supercharged. Then cracked 10s with a stock engine. Then swapped forged rods and piston into the stock block (no sleeve upgrade or head upgrades) and clicked off a 9.8 pass. Michael Greene also ran 10s in his stock suspension,stock trans,stock sealed longblock turbo 3.7. They are a surprisingly capable motor. Ultimately not as good as a coyote. But when I bought my 3.7 the cheapest coyote near it was 7-8k more and it had 20k+ more miles on it. So ultimately I'm pretty happy with where I am with this car. I know a turbo coyote could be faster but that's coin and at this point pretty common.

Si, no hablo englais... or something... Roebling Road sounds like a street that dudes meet up at to race. Glad its not that.

You're telling me you can do a low mile cyclone plus the LPF and supporting cast to safely run low 11s for under $20k? Because that's what you'd need to be doing and why I keep saying BS. Unless you got an ultra low miles pristine Cyclone for like $12k and then I'd like to hire you to negotiate my rent contract for me lol.

Example, 50k mile mint condition 2011 GT auto on SVTP just sold for $16k. Not around you but that is what shipping companies/plane tickets are for.

My cyclone was closer to 13k with low mileage and I got the lpf kit for 3400 with injectors.

So figure you paid $13500-$15000 for the Cyclone plus the $3400 LPF kit and everything else is a wash suspension and driveline wise. That would be assuming all the labor is DIY which I'm assuming yes.

I also bought my car 2 years ago. So in the mean time cyclone and coyote prices have fallen. And no I paid around 13k not 15k for the car.
