With a decent 60' time and having your SC tune dialed in just right you'd have put a lot more distance on that Mustang. Best of luck to ya!

I can't get my 60' times down, my tires just spin like crazy now. I don't know how to get the Mustang times down, seems like it doesn't want to accelerate until 3000 rpm's, I guess the 2.73's make it a dog.

Here is a video though from when I did race my supercharger:

I'm impressed with the kit, my transmission wasn't laying in the middle of the track. I also have the stock transmission tune, that is not helping me. Will see how I do in colder weather, too hot now.

I was at the track same night as magnumforcegb in my 2002 Camaro z/28(2.73 auto) with cat delete and programmer. We trapped the same mph, you can really see where his trans tune is killing him... I have longgg gears and so my et should be slow relative to trap.

DA corrected I did 13.2 @ 107 mph, magnumforcegb would have same corrected trap speed too.... So the weather right now really masks the speed of his car.

See on the first run I had a worse 60 foot then him, trapped the same mph, but ran faster et?


It was very hot and humid... My friend's srt8 charger did 13.5 @ 105 mph at the track in same weather.

But he did 13.0 @ 110.8 mph in 700 da or so when the temps were in the 50s and it was chilly....




Timeslip comparison break down... On the first slip above he did better 60 foot, but by the 330 foot marker I was .1 tenth of a second ahead already.

Also note he traps less in the 1/8, really picking up speed fast on the back half of the track

Got 3.73 gears installed in the Mustang today, tomorrow we are going to the track to see how they do. Will be interesting, Mustang V6 with 3.73's vs a Camaro V6 with a Centri Supercharger and crappy tune.

Couldn't race it. Took it for a quick drive and at 100 mph the buzzing in the cabin was extremely loud. We decided not to risk the driveshaft failure and just wait till next year when we have a one piece in there.

Car feels a lot lighter with the new gears though.

hmm... thats different. sure its the driveshaft? I trap at 104mph on the stock driveshaft and 3.73 gears. I imagine I'm making less power than your wife as well and I dont recall a buzzing?

We've had the car at over 110 mph before on the stock 2.73 gears with zero noise, but after the swap at 90 mph you can start to hear a buzzing noise coming from below the car, then at 100 mph it drowns out the entire exhaust. The steering wheel wasn't shaking so it couldn't have been a tire. It might have been over 100 mph though because the car accelerates quick now, definitely a worthwhile upgrade.

Over the winter time we will get a new driveshaft and be racing it by February or March. Sucks though because there was finally some Camaro V6's at the track Friday night that she could have raced. My car is a little too fast for racing other Camaro V6'ers.

My wife did get to go down the track though, she rode in her friends 2013 Mustang Stage 3 Roush. She had a lot of fun doing that.

You might have been right about it not being the driveshaft, the gears may have needed to be broken in. At 90 mph its quiet now. I already have a DSS shaft coming in though.

The gears on the Mustang changed it so much, the rear end kicks out when it shifts to 3rd gear. We are still running 235/50-R18 pirelli all-seasons, thinking of going to 19 inch wheels (to clear brembo's) and 285 rear tires. Are the Mickey Thompson Street Comp tires any good for racing?

We finally raced each other for the first time since August, 2013. We upgraded the Mustang from 2.73's to 3.73's, Driveshaft Shop 1-piece shaft and a MPT tune. She gained almost 5 mph trap but her times are off because as soon as she floors it she spins the tires and the car goes everywhere. She managed to cut a 2.2 second 60' time and was on track to getting a good 13 second run till around the 330' mark. That same run I spun my tires after the 60' mark.

Mods as of now:
2010 Camaro V6:
IPF Supercharger
VMAX Ported Throttle Body
MACE Stage 4 Ported Intake Manifold
MACE Plenum Spacer
VMAX Intake Manifold Spacer
ARH Headers
ARK DT-S Catback Exhaust
BMR Subframe Inserts, Toe Rods, and Trailing Arms
IPF Tune
275/40R20 BF Goodrich Sport Comp-2's

2012 Mustang V6
BBK Cold Air Intake
BBK 73mm Ported Throttle Body
BBK Headers
Borla ATAK Axle-Back
Driveshaft Shop 1-piece driveshaft
FRPP 3.73 gears
MPT 91 Race Tune
BMR Lower Control Arms
Stock 235/50R18 Pirelli All-Season's

Mustang on the left, Camaro on the Right.

I'm about to buy some 555r's for you if you don't get drag radials soon. Like $300 from wal mart. Your wifes v6 on tire would run 12.90-13.40's with that trap speed. I went 13.2 @ 105 mph with a 2.1 60 foot on street tire with 3.73s.... if i had drag radials that would have been a 12.8-12.9. This was last year in my camaro.

If you had a stall and gears and tire that 108 trap is also good for 12.2-12.6. Just put tire on it and run high 12's.

Tires will be coming soon to the Mustang, but I'm hoping she can get into the 13's with her current ones. Going to tell her to try to do a small burnout, see if that will help. I still can't believe how much of a difference 3.73's made in her car.

The Camaro is getting detonation at peak torque, that may be why my ET is low compared to my trap. Installing a Meth kit Thursday, see if I can get it dialed in Friday morning then go the track Friday night. I know with 10% ethanol my knock is lower, see if the methanol will keep it completely under control.

We went last night to the track and ran 6 times. I had just installed a Methanol injection kit that morning, so I was trying to tune it at the track as best I could. First run I actually had too much and caused a CEL from misfires and IAT voltage low, car went into limp mode. Took a while to clear those codes but still had problems with IAT voltage low. The Meth would get on the sensor and run down to the wires connecting to the plug.

My wife was car #837 and check out her R/T on the 2nd and 3rd timeslips. She also set a new personal best with 14.1 @ 101. Her trap speeds were lower than last time, I had filled her car up at the same station I get gas from last time we went to the track. This time she filled it up at a Conoco station and it seems like they either water down their gas or claim 91 octane when it might be 87.

My parents came out from North Carolina to watch us and recorded our 2nd and 3rd runs.

2nd Run:


3rd Run (no clue what song was playing over the PA system):

That seems like pure joy. I wish I could afford and have my wife to enjoy racing.
launch is hard. I do recomend getting the suspension completely done on both cars.

It's a bit different situation but similar enough. I just put can and heads with tube in mine v8. Before I was able to get 12.7 on the quarter, now the best I got was 13.02, traction on launch is a lot harder with more power. And tires won't do it all. I'm looking at coil overs. Let the car squat a bit more.
and that change of gears is a huge feeling of power. It will take done good practice to get it down.


Good luck. I'm really jealous and happy for you two!

Get ET street radials. I would let you use mine, but they're 275/50r15. Too small.

Since you got the brembos that dramatically limits your wheel choice options too.

You can't fit 17 inch wheels anymore, the GTO skinnies or G8 rear wheels. The skinnies would give you a solid 2 mph extra trap.

Thank you. I want to get more practice in now, seems to make a bigger difference than any upgrade.

I'm going to shoot for 18 inch wheels that weigh 20 pounds, but that will be off in the distance. Right now I'm going to practice launching at a higher RPM. My wife was raising the RPM's in her Mustang at launch, seems to have worked for her.

lower the tire pressure to ~25.

On all season street tires it made a difference on my camaro, even though the internet said it would not.

~40 psi cut 2.3-2.4. ~35 psi cut 2.1-2.2, ~25-27 psi cut 1.9-2.0's.

Will try that next time, I run 35 psi on the Camaro and 32 psi on the Mustang. I want to get my wife's Mustang in the 13's badly, she is right at the edge.
