AC unit? F' that with my car. Had a modified 78 Z28 once with no AC and I got to where I hated going anywhere in it when it was hot.

No. Trim level to trim level the new Mustang is still about 200lbs lighter than the 5th gen Camaro and now has about 5 more HP. No one really cares though because your talking about a 6th generation...

Is the V6 able to get a flex fuel conversion done like the V8? Because if yes you could run E85 and then if it's not available run premium. Bonus being you will make more power on E85 vs 93 octane....

I would still say if you want to go fast at the drag strip get a 11-14 Mustang GT automatic. Your going to be able to go just as fast or faster than the new Mustang for less money.

The thing I noticed with your post is you wrote your running a Nitto NT05R on stock rims. That tells me your using a 315/35R20 on a 9" rim. Definitely not recommended. Plus I doubt the contact patch...

G8 GT heads should be L99/L92 heads or LS3 heads with L99/L92 valves and valve springs. These should be a direct replacement for a L99 automatic Trans 5th gen Camaro.

G8 GXP heads are LS3 heads....

I think it would have been better for GM and buyers if they used a LT1 instead of developing a new LF4. I think it would have been cheaper for everyone. Weight would have been a little less as well...

The 11.4 done by the stock C7 A6 was -1500 DA. Also, from what I remember TRW's set up was super mild and inexpensive. I think he was using a 18" drag radial and his converter was a super simple and...

Full bolt on 5th gen SS's have run 11.4x.
No way does a 5th gen need a stroker and/or 575-600RWHP to run mid 11's. Bottom end doesn't need to...

To answer the OP's original question on tires I would do 305/45R18 or 325/45R17 in a MT or M & H drag radial. So long as you don't run into any weather I wouldn't have any problems with driving...
