Re: Just got my new gt!

Good for you, waddya get for options? Pics?

I think this car needs a tune, stock. My datalogger says it's leaving very little on the table fuel side (12.6 afr at WOT) but, I'd like a touch more bottom end torque and quicker throttle response. Then traction aids, I think....hopefully this discussion inspires you, lol

Ha that's awesome! Grats on the New Stang. I got my 2012 performance white GT back in October, so I know how excited you are.

Congrats again man

I got the Brembo brake package with 3:73 gears and 6m tranny. Other than that just basic gt, for now. Had 10 miles on it when I signed the papers. Click image for larger version

No greed ... you do NEED a new exhaust. The stock system is embarrassing. Check out my exhaust clips if you want some ideas.

Axlebacks only


Axlebacks with an offroad x-pipe, also CAI and Boss intake manifold.

Yes, the car needs a tune badly. The stock throttle response in specific does leave a lot to be desired. What are you datalogging with?

Re: Just got my new gt!

Good old Dashhawk's served me pretty well....Car ripped off 5.0 flat to 60, 13.0 1/4 at 109, on 0 degree pavement, cold tires, 300 miles on the odo, with the TC on. That means easy mid 12 1/4 at the track, as it sits. I swear it feels like the new 5.0 is slicks and a tune away from 11 sec. 1/4s.

Here's my fatass loaded car, nav, tech, leather, brembo, 3.73s, extra-thick metallic paint, bla, bla, bla. I'm only 150 pounds so, I figured I could carry more optional equipment without slowing up too much.

I like the stock exhaust and the basic sound the engine makes when you're on it. Fomoco got it right. I don't need to advertise any more than I already am with a red 5.0.

Good to know, I have a couple old 255 BFG DRs here from my 5.0 LX days. I'll round up some 5 bolts and see what's what. DH is not off much on time, based on my multiple experiments. mph can be a bit off because it's actual 1/4 mile not averaged over the last 60' like the strip. You've got to watch conditions too; roads can have a slight downhill or uphill grade not easily visible and this can affect results. The place I go, I've verified level. I did it as just a ballpark exercise, to see what I can expect, not a bullseye #. I'd have waited for better conditions if I'd been serious.
