    Judging by page 2, the 308/287 numbers were the calculated numbers at the crank (15% loss) from what they got from the dyno.

    ^No you can't.

    But I had an 85GT back in the day like you have now (bought it new ).

    The 85 sounded nice, but it ran high 14's stock. My stock 11 V6 auto buries it ...

    The '85 sure did sound good even though the duals weren't really duals, eh? But it took me a year to get those initial 15.20s and 14.90s to turn into 13.80s like my 2012 100A V6 did 1st trip down LVD. However, we had it made at the time, even if we had hair like Daryl Hall's.

    Yeah, the 85 5.0 was fast for it's day. Stock, the only domestic car that was faster in 85 was the Vette.

    I raced it and quickly found out that the 7.5" rear wasn't up to snuff, and that the Borg Warner T5 loved eating 2/3 synchros. LOL

    Still, I had fun (was this pic really taken 26 years ago? :eek:).

    Did mostly Test & Tunes, but tried bracket racing for a short time and got this for my efforts ...
