TJ.... So you upgraded to a 5.0 already.... that didn't take long :-) Very nice! They are pretty quick right out of the box... seen them in the 12s in stock trim.

Good luck with it and have fun. Hope to see it 1st hand one day.

Thanks. It should run 12.70's with the extra 8 ponies (I'm sure...) and the 3.73's in the rear.

I didn't mean to upgrade so soon, actually. I had been looking at that car online for a while, and knew no one would buy it because of the price and the seats. The Recaro's aren't moving well because most fat American's can't fit in the damn things. Race seats never bother me. I had been waiting for the 2015 or the 2014.5 for obvious reasons, but they're going with that EVOS thing more than the retro look, and the only thing different is going to be an IRS. Plus, they're raising the price.

The 2012 had been hit about three months after I purchased it by some a$$hat in an F-150 who couldn't drive. It was a hit and run and turned out to be a mess. Everything on the driver's side back from the door was pretty much smashed. The first body place screwed up the lines and the paint, scratching it and screwing up the color matching, and it took another Ford dealer another two tries to get it right. A friend of mine's mom then hit the door, and the car was just cursed at that point.

About two weeks ago, I went to open the driver's door, and the handle pulled off. I took it into the Ford dealer under warranty, and they informed me, after taking off the door panel, that the whole door mechanism fell apart. My girlfriend wanted to look at the new GT because I wouldn't shut up about it, and I ended up telling the salesman that he could keep the six if he could do that payments right on the new GT. Well, after knocking over seven grand off sticker, I took her home.

This one, I'm keeping. It's a rocketship...

Nice looking mustang. Congrats!

Im glad Ford is going back to forward design and putting the retro back in the vault.

The mustang customer base currently is 50yo. Im no where near it. Bring back the customer base to the 20s and 30s. Rebadge a mercury :rolleyes: wait that didnt work. Rebadge a Lincoln for the older crowd. :cool:

Until the production version is released. I cant comment. But sounds like it should not matter to you as bought what you like. I think the 2012 are good looking but not the 05s

They are all still concepts....I reserve the criticism until production is out. Some of the main pluses are; the '15 will be lighter, have as much HP, better MPG and better handling. Remember the Probe; the people can still sway the styling cues that Ford is still in the process of refining.

Track prep, DA, and heat soak were abysmal. All of the old men in their new camaro, vette, Shelby mid-life crisis mobile were eating up the starting line and burning out through third gear.

The '13 was throwing a P0300 code. After 5k, a few cylinders would drop out. Went through all of the TSB's, and nothing. Ford had the car for 44 days, everyone including and up to the engineers that developed the motor had looked at it. They're answer was "Under normal driving conditions, it's fine. Just don't rev it over 5k and you'll be fine." Basically, Go F myself. They told me that if they figured anything else out, they'd let me know.

I had been all the way up in the dealership/service department, had numerous phonecalls with Ford Corporate, and nothing. I told them to drop a shortblock in it, and they declined.

The dealer ended up trading me out of it and into this one. '14 Track Pack. It's only missing the Recaros, which I am missing greatly. I might throw in some Corbeau seats.

Apparently, warranty means jack. No one wanted to help me in any way.

I went and looked at the 1LE Camaro, because that's really what I wanted, but the little things that the Mustang had the Camaro was lacking, mainly creature comforts.

In any case, it is not my intention of having a new Mustang every year.

I had the first black one around here, the five other guys got black. The track pack is a nice change...

Right now, it's a bone stock five liter. The exhaust, intake, catch can, springs, panhard bar, etc. Is all sitting in my living room waiting to go on.

TJ.... When you get it done we will have to get together at Speedworld for a little 1/4 mile fun. The place has improved so much under the new ownership. I was out there on a Friday night back in March and clocked a 13.1@110mph with the SC on street tires. With some traction and a good driver it should be a low 12 second car.

Not bad times at all. Considering weight, you're close to the 400 to 450 rwhp mark.

I had the car out at OSW for a track rental with the V6 club to help them out with some of the new guys and gals, and the car ran 13.0 consistently, lost a little in the 60 foot with the BMR springs.

On a tire, the car should be low 11's, but my plan is a 10.50 index

The SC is running good and very happy with it. David has the tune about done... just need to send him a few more data logs to check the last changes. It would have been done a month ago if my Quaterhorse chip hadn't taken a dump.

The last time I was at the track had to laugh while staging for my final run. Before I rolled the window up to stage the car, the announcer was talking about the white V6 Thunderbird saying "I don't know what he is running in that T-Bird but it must be on Nitrous" :D Brought a smile to my face.

I have always respected it. Ten years ago, I was just a dumb kid who didn't know much about anything so a lot of what you guys would talk about was Chinese to me.
