Getting a shelby.

Hey guys im looking into getting a shelby. 11-12 or possibly a 13 or 14. Few things, what are the pros and cons? Anyone got one and not like it ? Also i seen a few boosted coyotes beating shelbys. What can be done to a shelby to get it into the 10s? 11-12.

The 13/14 where high 10 low 11 cars from the factory. If you put slicks on them they will make that on factory tires they might make it on a really hot day. There are tons of mods that can be done to make it faster more powerful etc. The trick is to get one learn to drive it before the mods. That way you can figure out what is needed more for the way you drive it.

They are great cars, bottom line. The 11-12 cars are the best 5.4 option but the 5.8 13/14 car is a better car, plain and simple. If you can swing one, go for it.

Biggest issue with either one is traction. The 285/35 F1 Supercars are terrible for hooking up. After owning 2 of them, I would recommend upgrading the rear rubber first. ~500 rwhp (11/12) or 600rwhp (13/14) in stock form needs rubber that will hook.

I'm at 550rwhp with a 2.60 pulley and an xpipe which is low power for a GT500 these days and the 305 NT555Rs still spin in 1st, but will hook in 2nd.

High 10's in a 11-12 car can be done with the stock blower but your driving skills better be pretty effin heroic along with a more dedicated drag setup.
A blower upgrade with supporting cooling/fuel mods and slicks will get you there.

Good choice in color.
Might I suggest tires as your 1st mod, if it still has the factory rubber.

She looks badass! As said, best color combo by far!!

As Alibi said invest in some good tires first. That car is probably good for 575-600rwhp in bone stock form. If you think you'll get caught in rain, look into a street radial. If it's a nice weather only/strip car buy some race stars and some beefy slicks.

Biggest choke points on the +2011 5.4 cars and 5.8 cars are the factory T/B and catted midpipe. I'd focus on replacing those along with a pulley and tune to start. Your 57lb injectors are adequate at that power level, plan on dropping your plugs a heat range.
