What's a good bang for your buck?

I have a stock 2013 mustang gt with axel back. Car ran good at the track with 12.7. I am trying to get ideas on how to get it down to the 11 range. If you can please help on mods and upgrades that aren't to expensive that will be great. Thanks for looking

That's really hard there, mods that aren't expensive and will cut down more than a second. Fastest route would be nitrous honestly. All other bolt ons besides a blower or turbo would be more expensive

+1 to the above, unfortunately fast doesn't come cheap, but the 5.0 has the potential to hit the 11s pretty easily, it just needs a little help from a tune and some suspension mods or just some nice grippy DRs.

a decent article on the suspension side.

can look at this article for an idea as well.

Sway bars not necessary, as they're pretty stout on coyotes. Only would be necessary for hardcore road course/auto-x. LCA's will most likely be beneficial if you're going to lower.

Welcome to MustangEvolution! It sounds like you have a pretty sweet 2013 GT. Post up some pictures we would love to check it out.

I'm glad to see that you're not wasting any time with your Stang. 12.7 is impressive for a bone stock car. The stock tires aren't that great, I never had any luck at the track with my stock tires on my 2011 GT!

Getting the 2011+ 5.0's into the 11's isn't that hard of a task. These cars are incredible and react to modifications very well! I installed a ton of modifications at once so I don't really know what I could subtract and still run 11's, but I'll give you a once over on my build. I went with Full exhaust, Intake, Boss Manifold, Upper/Lower control arms, Driveshaft, Bama tune and a set of Slicks and Skinnies. I was able to run an 11.87@119.7 on a extremely humid 90* day. There was a lot left in the car! However, the weather and my stock clutch were preventing me from going any faster. Who would have thought that multiple 5.5K launches on a stock clutch in 90* weather would be bad for the clutch ?

I would recommend starting with a CAI and Bama custom tune for sure. This will be the most beneficial mod you can do for your Coyote. I would also look into a set of gears, depending on what package your Mustang has. If you have 3.73's then you're in good shape. If not, I would recommend getting a set of 3.73's or 4.10 gears! Long tubes and an O/R X/H-Pipe are also great mods for the any Mustang. They'll not only allow your engine to breathe much better but they sound bad ***!

Last but not least I would look into some suspension mods. Upper and Lower control arms are a must if you're serious about racing your car often. A 1-piece driveshaft is also very important. I dropped .5 off of my 1/4 time with these mods.

Traction is probably the most important thing about racing. You won't be able to put down 400+ RWHP to the ground without a radial. Your 60ft time is going to be crucial if you want an 11 second pass in the 1/4 mile. There's a ton of great options here. I run the 17x4.5 and 15x8 Racestars for the track!

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future! If you'd like to know more information about a Bama tune feel free to hit them up directly. Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

What's a good bang for your buck?

If you can afford it go with the Michelin pilot super sports... I had Invos before and there is absolutely no comparison. Pricey but sticky! Better tread wear rating also

INVOs are great tires...so are the Michelin Sports but if you want to improve your 1/4 mile track time...you need to concentrate on your suspension and go with a drag radial not a street radial. Something like this...
Doesn't necessarily have to be this exact setup, but it is a step in the right direction. SVE Mustang Drag Wheel Track Pack 17x4.5/15x10 Dark Stainless (05-14) - LatemodelRestoration.com

And if you are running a manual trans, you will want a short throw shifter...Preferable a MGW or Barton with the two poll bracket.
