I don't think a equally equipped 2015 Mustang GT is slower than the old 2014 model but it's not faster either. I think when the smoke clears it will go down as about the same quickness. Is that a win...

My post was made because the other guy was saying that GM owners got shafted with cars that came out for one model year. My point was that as soon as the LS2 was ready it was put into the GTO and...

High IAT's will pull power on a NA car. The difference isn't as much as a FI car but if a CAI advertises 15RWHP and high IAT's from the design pull enough timing to retract 10RWHP then that's not a...

Open filter CAI testing on a chassis dyno with the hood up is NOT valid JLT. You are in the business to sell CAI's so of course you would say otherwise. Marketing BS. Yes ambient temps might be close...

I'm sorry but that would be a complete dick move by Ford. If a 2016 Mustang GT is made with 465 HP and cost the same as the 2015 then that is a pretty sh!tty thing to do to current owners. Plus, Ford...

I just looked at the specs and they list it as a 28" x 11.5" but then spec it at only 27.2" tall. Seems like you would list it as a 27" x 11.5" if it was that short but :noidea: it does say that it...

I'm sure Cam motion is set up a lot different and their lobe designs are called something different. You will need to contact them to see how aggressive their lobes are on your particular cam.
