427ish if it had the same drivetrain losses as the Camaro but the mustang uses a completely different transmission and rearend then the camaro.

The "soft limiter" starts in at 6850. It supposedly either pulls timing or starts to close the throttle - have heard both. What ever it is, you're essentially done by that point. The actual factory limiter is (fuel, spark, or throttle - not sure how they do it) is 7000.

yeah thats what i figured. Seems like a tune and raising the limiter to something respectable will do wonders.

Just ordered a 5.0 Mustang for the wife!

We are a house divided, I have a 2010 Camaro SS/RS , and have talked blue in the face AGAINST the Mustang... but I have been brought to my knees....
Ordered her a New 5.0 today.
Trading her 07 Mustang in , so we will know both sides of the fence.
It's not that the Mustang isn't a fine car also, because it is... I've just always been a bowtie guy . Even if I have 2 fords in the house now, and 2 chevy's ( down sized from 5 chevys ) .
Anouther thing I hate is the 36,000 mile warrenty when mine is 100,000 and I have to pay extra to get hers to 100,000.

Oh well... she will be a happy little girl

posted at S197forum.com:

Just got off the phone with Eric Tinnerman (PLStang) and there's a new sheriff in town. First pass off the trailer went 9.97 on a less than stellar launch. Second run was a bit better but the car was wandering around on the top end. As it stands though..........the Nine Second Barrier has been broken by Richard Lelsz and the gang from Strictly Performance.

9.93 at 137 mph


*Shit's real in Texas.*
