No tracks

I have no tracks near me but I'll hopefully travel a couple of hours too one soon. I wanted to know about how much power I have from a mustang
I recently bought. 2002 V6 auto 114K miles with cobra wheels, street tires. CAI, BBK headers hi-flo cats xpipe dual exhaust. A bunch of handling mods as well but that won't do much for the strip. What kind of numbers and Should I see? And about how many horses are under my hood? I plan on taking her to the track as soon as I can.

Depending on what suspension mods, but just off the top of my head I would say low 15s in the 1/4 and about 200-220hp at the crank.

Right now I have front and rear sway bars. Strut bar welded in the back. And later down the road I'm going to pick up some new struts and lowering springs. Not bad 200 hp I think is be happy to break into high 16's or 17's since I haven't been to a track.

Low 15s for a good driver. You should expect 16s maybe very low 17s. My car can do a 13.7-13.8 stock but even with my o/r exhaust, intake, tune, and short shifter i haven't broken into 13s yet. Traction is a B!tch

I don't consider myself "good" just average I guess. Any tips on launching with an automatic? I plan on getting a tuner later on, and get on a dyno as well to calculate horsepower

Press on the brake with your left foot and give it a little gas with the right foot. The torque converter should hold hold the power without moving the car until about 2k rpm, hold it there and when the 3rd yellow goes hit the gas and let go of the brake... Yes i said go on the 3rd yellow, by the time you react and get moving it will be green. Just remember that reaction time doesn't affect ET, so if you only want to work on times then don't worry too much about your reaction.

You can calculate HP based off of your mph at the end of your 1/4 mile run. No need to go to a Dyno for it. A tuner should be your next mod, especially with a auto. You'll see some nice gains from it. And stock your car is a low to mid 15 car.

Alright cool. I guess I'll try to get to the nearest strip ASAP and ill be sure to save slips. I live about an hour away from Los Angeles California. Anybody know a track nearby. Even better. I work like 3 miles away from the auto club speedway in Fontana. Anybody know if they offer track nights or something?
