    Just Got My Car Less Than A Week Ago...planning in a strip trip with some friends just for shits and giggles...car is an auto but I shift it myself...curious on what 1/4 times/speeds to expect. Live in NW Indiana and few mods I know listed in signature. Thanks everyone! ImageUploadedByV6Mustang.com1405904253.157479.jpg ImageUploadedByV6Mustang.com1405904283.671105.jpg

    [email protected] 88 mph or so. Potentially slower if your wheels are particularly heavy and bigger than stock.

    Aren't those the stock 01ish-04 polished+cleared aluminum V6 wheels?

    Paint job looks good.

    thanks for the info Markstang, they definitely aren't any bigger than stock, but feel heavier for sure

    Couldn't say by exactly how much, but the wheels are definitely heavier than the polished/cleared aluminum on my buddy's 2001 V6...

    that 1/4 time comes from what my car did with divorced duals, cai, and tuner.

    Well I appreciate any potential ideas as to what she might perform for me so thanks again, this is my third mustang but first v6...so I haven't a clue what to expect. I had a '91 cobra and a 98 gt both mildly modded for street but were never track run

    Normally I just drive on the street and enjoy the pleasant looks from people and driving experience of a nice mustang but the antagonizing of my idiot friend in his stock stratus rt 4d (he has more valves) and my uncle in his bone stock long bed quad cab non-dually f-350 diesel...so I'm just doing my homework before we go out to play

    and the "he has more valves" comment was his excuse to rationalize his "race car"
