Aahhaah, so you made a 13.6 with your 3.73s or some other car? See above..We just need to clarify for Friday Party Night Track Talk

I just said 13.6 with solely a borla muffler and a steeda intake. I had 3.31's in the car that were completely stock...

to answer the OP question originally-
The only reason may be an opportunity arises that will put you in the seat of one for free or close to it. Tons of fun can be had adding minor mods and tuning. Adding a blower properly would be bad ***. I bet I could make a fast, quick stopping, powerful, tuned V6 that sounds pretty sick too..*.~

I bought my new 2012 for 20K cash. I bought the car because it was the cheapest new car that weighed 3385 lbs. came with an 8.8 31 spline rear end, and is easily modified to except my other drive trains. I've had 500 inch BB street cars. BFD. You have to work on them constantly and the expense is not worth it. It cost 50K to build a car today. With my car and 10-12K no one will touch it. I can get new factory replacement parts and it has all the latest safety systems to boot. Kaase put a Boss Hemi in his. In the mean time, I'm having a blast driving this car. Lots of fun. Consider this. A 66 Chevy Nova with 300HP 327/4 speed ran slower ETs and speeds than your V6 Mustang. Any way you cut it, it's a muscle car, for 20 K !!!!!!

I could afford any car I want. Never been one that's felt a need to falsely be better than someone else. Nor a need to try and prove it. I do what pleases me. Thus I bought a 3.7 and chose the 2012 over the 2013 because I like the looks better.

Funny you mention this. I was at the Cecil County Dragway last night and was strictly a spectator. I watched several 2013 or 14 Mustang 5.0's make 13.6 1/4 mile runs. Dude was sandbagging from the launch, and couldn't shift his 6 speed manual for crap. 420 HP V8 and dude was consistently running 13.5 to 13.6's 1/4 mile. I'm like WTF! For Pete sake, If your gonna track the car at least know how to work your manual transmission the way a stripper works a pole.

But the point is, you can have the fastest car but driver mod is key. The way dude was driving my 3.7 would of roasted him. Lol!

That's my point! And race much better not on the track. . But when I was there with my friend her 5.0 dyno'd made 420 wheel. Her best time that day was a 13.2. I think that's terrible considering I have much less mods and spent way less lol.

420 rwhp and only ran 13.2. Yeah, that's horrible. I think my 297 rwhp 3.7 could run that or better. Ha ha ha. What was your friends problem? I would think she should be low 12's or high 11's with 420 rwhp. Especially with an automatic. It seemed the manual drivers got much worse times last night compared too the automatics.

There was a Jeep Cherokee SRT 8 last night and that b otch ran consistently 11.3's in the 1/4 mile. There was one Honda Civic that looked like and sounded like a$$ but that mother ran 10.7's in the 1/4 mile. It was crazy fast.

She drives a manual. But spinning ain't winning! And that's a big problem with these big V8's. You gotta know how to launch those bad boys and most people don't.

You know, It seems too be a real common problem with manuals and excessive tire spin. I can't say I'm noticing that issue with my stang. Of course I have an automatic. I just lift my left foot off the brake, slam my right foot on the gas pedal too the floor and off we go.

I could never do that. I still have a lot of perfecting to do with my launch. But it is harder with manuals I agree.

Definitely way more finesse needed to perfect manual compared too an auto. Lol! Either way, the 3.7 engine is amazing and never did I think you see a V6 N/A running high 12's low 13's. That's amazing power and I paid 22,500 for my 11 V6. What other new 300 plus HP sports coupe can you buy for that price? With some simple bolt on mods my stang is making 350 too 360 HP (crank) all for under 26K. Holy sheet Batman.

They are really amazing performance vehicles for the price. I mean, less than 4 years ago the Gt was the big shot at 315 HP and now the V6 comes 305 HP from jump. All for 22,500 or less. Mine was 22,500 and that was with automatic and spoiler package.

I'm actually excited too see what track numbers the 2015 4 banger turbo will be putting up. Its gonna be bad a$$ and think its great. Many V8's are gonna loose or barely win against the 4 banger and it should be no joke

How long ago did you get yours for that price? I got mine last year for $22k with the dub edition packages and it's fully loaded with the navigation system as well.

I purchased my 2011 3.7 back on October 2, 2010. The 11 models were still new and hot with it being out 4-5 months back in October 2010.

The deals back then were not as good as today's deals. Being the 3.7 and 5.0 was the newest, latest and greatest thing back in 2010 the deals were decent but way better now. You know when something is new and super hot, the demand is up higher for them. I still feel I got a good deal on my car for back then but no where near your deal. Lol!

I picked my 12 3.7 because honestly it was my first New car and I didn't care much about the power since I was a college student and still am and just wanted a nice car to go to school in. It was a few months after I git it that I noticed holy **** this thing can really move! I decided I wanted it to go faster and most of you know my mods since I've been here a good bit and helped as much as I can, I think I was the one who started the resonator craze haha ask Kona Blue and B.O.B when he had his sixxer. I now have both a 3.7 and 5.0 Coyote and damn does my 3.7 pull hard. It loses to my 5.0 but honestly for my 5.0 being as fast as it is, my 3.7 isn't doing too bad at all! So those with a 3.7 don't underestimate ur sixxer it can easily take out a lot of v8s maybe not a coyote but if u sprayed or have F/I you'd definitely be able to.

I did 13.3 with my 3.7


I am on the right at 13.3
My friend Tony is on the left with a 13.1 with his 3.7 manual
There were two 5.0's there that night that could not get out of the 14's due to very poor driving. Tony and I coached the one guy and he finally got into the high 13's.
I'm talking 1/4 mile drag from a stand still. I know I sure don't want to race a 5.0 from about a 30MPH roll start. That is where they would spank me bad. It does not matter to me though because my Mustang is still very much fun to drive and I can still put my GF hard into her passenger seat when I want to.
Like a few of you already mentioned, Poor driving and spinning tires equal slow 1/4 mile times. That 400 plus horsepower 5.0 is still a screamer in the real world out on the street but so is the 3.7 Cyclone 3.7 V6. Both are great engines and way more fun then we thought cars would be with all the new Govt. restrictions and crap.
I love both engins but prefer to have my CYCLONE 3.7 V6

This is off point but a 3.7 Automatic will run quicker than a manual. I 60' 2.059 with factory tires! though I run 14.1 @ 102 with 3.55 gears. I loose a ton of time trying to speed **** at 6900 rpm with this POS trans/shifter. Power shifting is totally out of the question. I have zero engine mods. Back on point...it's definitely worth it. As any Vietnam era vet knows, what I run would kill half the muscle cars from back in the day. What's not to like?

For me my V6 Pony Pack performed better than heavy early 70's cars we hot rodded with 351 fords to 400 mopars. [I am not talking about the factory rich cost rods, but the common V8 and Big Blocks a kid could buy used]

+1000
We rented a V6 Premium ragtop February 2013 during a trip to Phoenix and bought my car a month after returning home. I looked at it as an extended test drive.

I would think she should be low 12's or high 11's with 420 rwhp. Especially with an automatic. It seemed the manual drivers got much worse times last night compared too the automatics.

There was a Jeep Cherokee SRT 8 last night and that b otch ran consistently 11.3's in the 1/4 mile. There was one Honda Civic that looked like and sounded like a$$ but that mother ran 10.7's in the 1/4 mile. It was crazy fast.
The GT doesn't come with 420 RWHP - it has 420 at the flywheel, which is what every manufacturer posts (flywheel not rear wheel horse power). If it was an automatic it had around 345 RWHP. Still running slow for the horsepower and torque though.

Exactly what I am thinking about doing! Just throw a turbo, oil cooler some extra engine mods 400-450 hp and smack about all daily driving cars

Wow Ronnie! That proves at stock tune with 2.73 gears can run low 13s.
Man, we couldn't get below 14 with 2.73 gears in several of the V6 Premiums that have run up here. 3.31 got the same higher 13 numbers the Road and Track folks got.
Your Horse Rocks Ronnie, and you even have warmer air!
