To build some of these top drag cars(and I mean sportsman drag cars) you could easily spend 200-300k never mind buying a tow rig and the money it costs to attend events, up keep on the car etc. That mustang is A LOT closer to 500whp than you guys are thinking it just has been built and tested VERY well and works extremely well for what it is. If your M3 is so badass I would love to setup a run for you and this mustang and since you can piss away 5k I'm sure you'd do it just for giggles. Let me know.

    I love that some people here are not as dense and actually have some exposure to understand these things

    An Aside: Sticky how many times has your M3 seen the track? How many times has it seen the dyno? Just curious

    My thoughts:
    That T5 is built.
    as in, fully built.
    as in, no-lift-shifts/straight cut gears/bronze shift forks/cut dog rings/hardened nickle gears/aftermarket guts

    And that all equals to "see the shift light-yank the shifter" and ultra quick shifts.

    A stock t5 can no way handle that power. I've broken a few t5 boxes with 300rwhp!

    I was being sarcastic. I Just thought i'd throw in my two cents since this thread has a lot a chit chat!

    If someone is building for the purpose of hustling street races that's simply stupid and something most guys modifying German cars are not doing as it's childish. Hence why posting wheel hp doesn't matter.

It's very likely under 3000lbs as well which doesn't hurt, that combined with 450-500whp can run into the 9's with ease.

    It's hooking up damn well and thats the win. Spanked a GTR, Z06 and a 911TT so far from what I have seen.
    I love how we're all overestimating all of a sudden what it takes to build a foxbody for drag racing especially versus new and import platform. It's night and day.

    I used to Race Superstreet and EZ street with my Mustang. Let me tell you its not since in anyway to get a mustang to leave that hard. and you don't need alot of power. 1/4 mile is just that and your 60 ft is key if you dont leaver good say good bye to the guy in the other lane.
    That is not a stock T5 no way in hell. World Class T5 meeeeeehhhh maybe but Liberty T5 possible. I bet my ass i could build a 9 second Mustang with Used parts for less the 20G with the car.
    Lighten it up 2500LBS max (very eazy to do)
    331CI with a 250 shot off the line Progressive eazy it will go 9.7's at 140. Good tires are a must.

    Im build my Porsche for the Purpose of street racing here and when i pull up and raced it here guys always say its a Porsche they don't leave good. Well the Guy in a 10.31 Z06 didnt think that again after he lost.

    EASY. Just look at what used parts or even new parts trade for versus non-domestics. It's night and day as stated.

    More childish than reving your car to kingdom come in neutral at a car show? I think you're too quick to pass judgement on people. People don't hustle with German cars primarily because it's way too expensive to even be competitive with other cars, PLUS the people expect a Porsche or whatnot to be fast ("hustle?").

    Note, I thought the revs were badass.
    Change is constant

    Yes, way more childish than a tuner revving for a crowd at their booth they paid for because people asked to hear it. Way, way more childish.

    People automatically expecting expensive to be fast are stupid and don't know anything about cars. Most likely not the people at a street race.

    I have nothing against this Mustang but some balance to some of the ridiculous assertions posted because some people choose not to street race was necessary.

    Yeah seriously, lol. I certainly do my fare share of dumb $#@! but WTF, I thought this only happened n F&F movies, lol. I'm not saying these guys don't have money etc......, I just didnt think street racing was this out in the open at a F'ng traffic light, lol

    lmfao @ car shows....yeah I know what that car does and I'm sure it's never seen a 1/4 mile pass worth mentioning with that power (he avoids the question like the plague). Thanks for confirming it lol. You never know who's in the crowd to call you out lol I love it

    Having a 1/4 mile pass (an actual pass...not Pbox) in your sig isn't the same as OVER-GLORIFIED DYNO NUMBERS. But that's just me... A 1/4 mile pass shows what you're doing with the car...a dyno number is a # from a tool used in the tuning process that can vary from tool to tool and doesn't tell ANYONE what the car does. Dyno numbers don't win races...I think anyone would tell you that

    The pile that I posted is timeslips run with the car that don't apply to the power you're talking about as I have yet to hit the strip with the power you are referencing making your point irrelevant and idiotic once again.
