I'd have to see it to believe an NA 3.7 could crack 12 seconds. That would be an impressive feat!

He only did it once and I was not there but Tony don't lie. The night he ran when I did, He did a 13.1.
He did a lot more to his car since then, He was at Bradenten not long ago and was in the low 12's.

I called Tony and he confirmed he did a 11.970 at Gainesville that night but could not repeat the run. The rest of the night he could not get out of the low 12's.
At Bradenton he was doing a pretty consistent 12's .
I'm sure there are a few on this forum from Florida that has seen a Black on Black 2012 Mustang at the various drag strips such as Orlando speed world, Gainesville , Bradenton that I know of.
At one time he had flat black stripes over the top but took them off a while ago.
The strips here in Florida are at Sea level and if you get a nice chilly night with a little dampness in the air you think your driving someone else's car.
I really can't drag race anymore because of lack of $$$$ and bad health but I would bet $$$$ I could get my car into the high 12's consistently.
fifty years ago I was actively drag racing at Cecil County MD. Atco, York US30, and others drag strips on the east coast,
In 66 I had a 427 Corvette with a Grumpy Bill Jenkins tuned engine that did a 10.88 at 143 at Cecil County drag strip with slicks the first time out.
Yes, those were the best days for me "EVER"
Before that I had a 65 Mustang notchback with a Hi-Performance 271 that I had Billy McDual redo that would run 13 flat with street tires and I won more money street racing with that car then you would believe possible.
I'm 74 and broke and not the best of health now but I still have that 16 year old brain. I still love fast cars and Harley Davidson's but appreciate the Jap bikes that turn in the 9's and 10's and still run on the streets.
I feel bad for you young people because you will never ever know how cool it was to live in the late 50's - 60's and early 70's.

There is so much available for these V6's, performance wise, I believe it. On a naturally aspirated car that's probably the limit, but the right tires, in the right conditions...I could see it. Not much of a straight line guy myself, but I can appreciate it.

The ability to work on and enhance these V6's is exactly what drew me to them. That damn BMW my wife had was killing me 1 issue at a time. With this car I can do all the work on it, and I can enhance it to what ever level I (she) like, plus I already have most of the tools to do it.

I'm pretty much done.

I'm as far as I want to go in the engine/suspension on my MCA, There are a few things I will get if I ever get the money. Cosmetics to make it look better if that is possible.

For street driving, a tuned V6 is fun and has all the power you need.
If you like racing then its a different story, get as much power as you can afford.

Like Ronnie, and for the same reasons, I recommend the V6.

My v6 is a lot of fun and I don't get bored of it. I do have BBk long tubes, shorty catted X, axlebacks, intake, throttle body, diablo tune though so I can't say for stock.

Not so far, in the Beaujolais region, 50 km from Lyon. This is the beginning of springtime. Thanks Jonyxz for your comment.

Whats up man, I have had my V6 for close to 4 years. The car has rarely given me any problems. But after having it for about a year i wish i would have gone with the V8 and have gotten it stick. If you can afford the upgrade go with the V8 you will not regret it. If the V6 is what you want and you dont care much about power, it has enough to get up and going when you need it too. But if you ever get in a V8 and drive it you wont want your V6 anymore lol

One day if I get tired of my V6 being the way it is, a nice supercharger kit will get married to the engine and we will give them V8s a run for their money. For now, my car is fast enough and even if I get it up to 400+hp blah blah... there will always be someone faster than me. It's not how fast you get there, but how much fun you have getting there... just my opinion. But don't get me wrong.... V8s are fun too. I like the lighter front end and better MPG with my V6.
