The mustang doesn't make near the torque the ZL1 does. The drag radials and CAI should get you into the low low 12's, i've never seen times that low for a 5.0, unless its supercharged. The tires would run you about 1150 ( that's what I paid for Nitto's) and the roto fab for 400 unless you get the carbon fibre look which is 550. Adding more power until you can harness the beast won't do you much good.
you can run low 12's on factory tires but i would go with the nitto555r's if you plan on doing alot of street driving. they are better in the rain than the nitto nt05r's. nto5r's absolutely suck in the rain. the nitto website is very informative with lots of pics too. i have noticed the handling has suffered a bit since i put on drag radials, that was one good thing about those goodyears is they do handle corners well.

I said he claimed to be stock, had it actually happened, because I didn't actually admit to it, it was by less than a 10th of a second. After I got online to look up 5.0 1/8th miles times, and yep, he was where he was supposed to be, allegedly.

RX Super chiller.
20-30 RWHP gain on the dyno, will prevent up to 60 plus RWHP loss due to heat soak at the track.

Absolutely appreciate everyone's input here. I think I've made up my mind on what I want to do now. Only thing is I'm surprised no one mentioned the Jannetty no tune package, for the money I threw out there.

Anyway, hopefully I won't wise up over the rest of the weekend so I can go ahead and blow this money on Monday.

What did I decided? It's a secret. I'll do another thread when the wheels are in motion, and I meant figuratively, but I guess literally works too
