There are cams that would give him a 80RWHP boost in power. 80RWHP boost in power with good driving and a good 60ft would increase his trap speed to over 120mph. 120mph trap speeds is a 11second car and even a mid 11second car with a good 60ft in the 1.6 range.

I understand your point, but you are mistaken. Im sure Ehab will chime in at some point. With intake, tune, and axle back he was only able to trap 111mph. with the exact same setup(intake, tune and exhaust) I did 118. Same track same night. The boss intake manifold does make the car a little faster but nothing compared to a cam. My point being is with just a intake and tune a 5.0 can trap what a camaro with a cam can. Im not bashing the camaro in anyway, I just think your information is a little off.

So what we learned today is that anyone who wants an 11 second Mustang can save 50k by just getting the GT because with 2k in mods you can beat it.

(if we were talking new at this point)

Not hardly. With 2k of mods in a GT, you won't be trapping anywhere near 125 mph. And then if you start modding a GT500, well, game over. A sticky set of tires and a pulley and you're going to need to sink a lot more than $2k in a GT.

only with the right driver though. When i first got my intake and SCT tune, I was disappointed when I only trapped about 1 mph faster than stock. While Debro was trapping as high as 118 with intake and tune. my car now makes about 430 rwh and only traps mid 113's. If I could trap as high as 118 with the cam I'd be happy. But it's just crazy that a 5.0 with intake and tune and a great driver traps as high as a stock ZL1.

A stock 2012 GT500 traps 125?

Kinda hard to believe. I will admit, I have no experience but still hard to believe.

2013 I might could see. But 125mph is pretty fast, considering.

emphasis in bold.
I trap 122-124~ with a 150 shot nano nitrous in my old bolt on ls1. So yeah 125 is moving for what its worth.

Its more like 6K in mods. I have done the homework since I might get one in addition to my SS. Were talking LT headers, gears, torque converter, 15inch wheels and DR's, 1 piece driveshaft, springs and adj shocks, LCA's, adj panhard rod, rear end girdle, and tune. Thise mods will get you mid 11's in a auto car.

The Mustang needs all those, or the Camaro?

Seems to me the stang just needs and intake and exhaust. lol

So a mustang with a tune and intake picks up 7mph? That's pretty nuts. I picked up 4mph with tune and exhaust.

My buddy has a 2012 5.0 that's in the 11s at about 118mph, and all he's got is an E85 tune, injectors, 302 manifold, Jeg's cat deletes, 3" exhaust, with the only suspension mod being Eibach Sportline springs with LCA relocation brackets. Less then 2k in mods, trapping 118 running high 11s on a stock 255 series summer Pirelli. I'm not surprised at this dude's time, just his trap. 121 is hauling the mail with just basic stuff he's got done.

I never ran my car down the track bone stock. A week after I got it, I bought a Torq speedlab mail order tune and the intake. so I'm not sure exactly how much mph it picked up.

Last week @ atco there was another 2012 5.0 with an intake, boss IM, cat delete, AED tune and axleback running 11.9-12.1 119+ with 3.31 gears on stock tires. Im not saying every mustang with those mods will trap that high but its possible. There are alot of other variables to consider, one mainly being DA

If 11 second ET's are your main concern not trap speed then you don't need anywhere near 6k to do it. You dont even need the headers or the converter(if you stick with the stock manifold)4.10 gears, tune, front runners, and DR's should be enough.

With my DA I'm pretty sure it would take at least the parts I posted to run mid 11's without weight reduction. Plus it would just be a steping stone for a Whipple 2.9 later on down the road. I would do the SC first but I'm curious how fast I could go full weight with bolt ons.

I am not saying they cant be faster but those times were all typical around here. Nothing a SS cant handle!
Are you high? Many DD 5.0's have went 10's and low to mid 11's with bolt ons. Stock best is 12.2 and tire only best is now 12.07. I had my own 5.0 manual go 11.8 with tune/intake.dr's. Full bolt ons went 11.4 and I am not a great driver. But down side is sucking mnaual trans. I now have a auto blown 5.0 that went 10.3 at 650whp. The car makes over 700whp now. Yet to run it. Completely stock engine, stock headers even. Thats on my race tune and even on heacvy 20" rims. Street tune makes about 650 now. All on 93 pump.




I will be picking up a camaro is few months for the wife. It will get some simple mods nothing to crazy. enough to make 550-600whp. So really just a blower, bolt ons.

If he's really running those times and speeds then you are going to need more than just a cam.

To tell you the truth, with a 1.9 sec 60' I don't see how he's running that with his mods. I know the new 5.0 is fast but I'd bet big money that most cars with the same mods as he has wouldn't with an intake, exhaust and tune.
lol i was about to post something like this. Then is saw your post.

Lets get one thing straight! It takes allot more then a few freaking boltons for any car to run 10s! If anyone thinks they gonna go buy a 5.0 slap a few basic parts on it and run 10s just like nothing is in for a big surprise.
