What does your 12.80 have anything to do with running low 12s with nothing but a tune? So your car will pick up .6 in the 1/4 with just a tune, please go do it. That's one hell of a tune lol

as a matter of fact with some break in miles and a tune they do pickup that much. a tune isnt just engine perameters it's also transmission shift points and pressures. Fords stock tune is very conservative in the auto equipped Mustangs. i dont expect a closed minded person like yourself to believe it and that's fine. you can get your education the hard way at the track. oh and that 12.80 was the first pass ever in that car with what i believe was less than 600 miles on the car. it went on to run 12.70's that day

I can't wait to learn the hard way, but something tells me I won't ever find the teacher!

Most of the low 12s I have witnessed were 5.0s with tune, x-pipe, and DRs. While not solely tune only it is impressive to say the least as to how little the 5.0 needs to reach high 11s to low 12s. Bang for the buck I think you would be hard pressed to beat the 11/13 5.0 automatic car add some bolt-ons and run at the 1/4.

They respond well to an X pipe and a tune, tires are the icing on the cake. That's allot more then just a tune like this guy claims. It just kills me when people think all I need is a tuned 5.0 to run low 12s and in reality that's just not true! His car runs strong stock, but there just as many if not more that are stuck in the 13s. I see it all the time, just like te 392 cars! Your car ran a great stock time, and I don't know if its my tracks or what but the fastest 392 I seen was from Modern Muscle at Byron! He was 12.8s all day at 107 and that was the only one I have ever seen even break into the 12s, all the rest I seen low 13s with SRTs in the high 13s.

My only thing is, I know all of these cars can run some great times, it's been done! But it's just not as easy as buying a 5.0 and putting a tune on it! You know that first hand, there are a few guys running 11s with Bolton camaros and yet both of us were stuck in the 12s! My issue will be solved in 2 weeks with th400!

Your correct with my 5.0 and a Ford Pro-Cal tune the best I got was 13:07 with the car, there were issues with launch and shifting, but that car was a long way off from low 12s.

Congrats on making the move to the TH400 I can't wait to see the results,

The 5.0 is capable If the person actually knows how to drive the car down the track. Example me and a guy i know had similarly optioned 5.0's his was a 12 mine 13. I was very consistant with 8.2's stock, he was very inconsistant with 8.8-9.2's stock. we both added 555r's everything els was stock. i was at 7.9 all night he was in the 8.6-8.8 range. Driver seems to be the main diffreance in if these cars will run low to mid 12's or low 13's

My friend's auto 13 gt runs 11.98 with an aluminum driveshaft, bbr 93 tune, and offroad x on the stock Pirellis's in 80 degree weather. The lighter driveshaft is like adding another 20hp.

5.0 is FAR more suceptable to a tune. They do wonders for the as well as doing basically nothing to a LS. Because the induction system of the 5.0 is super erupt with 4v and vvt. As well as the fact 5.0 does like 2k more rpm range

Translation, please.

Standard U.S. English if it's not too much trouble.


VVT and DOHC does allow for a wider range of tuning possibilities, but that does not mean that a conventional pushrod engine has no tuning potential.
