    If you're talking about the weights from the Shootout, we weighed the cars in the parking lot the day before the drag race. Not everyone who weighed their cars raced. Many who weighed their cars made significant changes before racing (installing new wheels, etc). Some (like me) didn't run on drag tires. So if people who weighed their cars wanted to list their ETs, they could, but the data wouldn't mean all that much.

    We weighed his car back in the day,(2000) when he had his car and would race it every week after school. He would post mid 14s. My son prolly weighed 130 lbs., so the car was 3950. We believe that the car made around 240 rwhp. I seen curb weight listed for an 06 mustang gt between 35-3700 lbs. This is from car and driver. Like I said earlier, the calculator was just for grins, some of the better ones can be very close to real world numbers. They do not however allow for weather or tire slippage. Also turbo chargers will skew the numbers.

    I would skip the headers and just drop your exhaust off of the stock exhaust manifolds and port the collectors out. The stock manifolds flow really well once you grind off the "hump" in the collector. I believe the 94-95 passenger side flows better than early models though. This will save you a few hundred dollars on something that will gain very little performance.

    I'm 170 lbs....a fairly lighter guy. Forget about removing rear seats and air conditioning and spare tire and whatnot, i'm surprised that some guys haven't gone to Jenny Craig in search of better ET's.

    sc's built right will have no problem with the stang. know anything with a 5.0 meaning 2011 or newer is another story.

    Agreed on the newer 5.0's. The V6's got upped to 305 hp in 2011, but the only signifiers (externally, that I know of) is that the V6 had got dual exhaust, because I believe that the taillights had changed with the same body style in 2013/2014. 2010 with single exhaust is the 4.0 engine, I believe, which was a carryover year like the 94-95 5.0's were in the SN95 design before the 4.6 came along.

    That's a good way to know the competition.....any newer 3.7 Mustang with a dual exhaust (the quickest way to tell the guaranteed 305 hp years, if the 2010 doesn't have an aftermarket dual, that is) is going to be tough to beat, too.

    I'm working on it

    I quit smoking in early January and have been dieting and exercising to lose weight and be more healthy. It's a slow and difficult process, but I'm sticking with it.

    Go to a diabetic diet.watch the carbs. 60 grams of a carb three meals and two 15 gram snacks. I am diabetic and know this will work, but to be safe consult your doctor David.it is similar to an Atkins diet.
