This is my buddies car. Traded his manual in for a auto as well.
Bone stock minus the tune and tires/wheels. I
He is running all stock suspension, the stock 3.15 gear and using the stock CAI. Car has 915 miles on the OD.
Best ET of the evening was:
Best MPH was:
Best 60' was:
He suspected the car would run a low 12 around 116. It was the quickest/fastest N/A 2011+ car our there, put many modded Camaro to shame and was the most fun I have had at the track in some time. I bought a plastic JLT CAI to do some testing with however after installing and updating the MAF transfer function in the tune, the car had a hard time shifting on the 1-2 shift. Looking at the timeslips, the stock CAI still had the best 60' which was the only comparable datapoint. He will try with the stock vs. aftermarket CAI again next time we go out and hopefully have some concrete comparison data to post. Once the video is uploaded I will update the thread.
BTW - this is an example of why I would rather see track times vs. dyno numbers.
Next mods to the car will be:
4,400 Circle D converter
3.31 rear gear
Rear control arms and mounts
Special thanks to kdanner on the tune and upcoming video

For some more comparison. There was a full bolt on manual 5.0 with 4.10's and bigs/skinnies. He was redlining at 7300. He ran 12.2@118. After some coaching from us and him raising his redline to 7800 and shifting at 7750 he ran a 11.7@121. He also had a 100 shot ready to spray but was trying to max out his N/A runs and never sprayed it.
That's crazy ... if I ever decide that I want a full track stang I'll probably get an auto as well. I still prefer my manual (though not all the problems that have come with it) for fun driving off the track though. It's an interesting time when the computers are starting to drive the cars better than we can!
