Not a kill, but a keep up.

A friend has a 2000 Mustang GT. He's done some stuff to it, nothing too severe mostly chip, pulleys, spacers, etc.

We're at a light and he asks "Are you missing your gasoline engine yet?" I laugh and say no then rev it, he is on the passenger side and he hears her rip. "Not bad. Hit it, let's see."

He jumped me at the light (he is stick), he launched perfectly. My truck takes a second to "kick in" and from there I was on his quarter panel (had I not did the full exhaust I would have pulled on him for sure). I see him looking in his rearview to find me, then he checks his side view and he

At 85ish he started to pull away and that's when I let off.

He calls me on his cell and asks why was I making so much smoke? I explained why and I asked if he floored it and he said yes. He admitted he was shocked when he seen me on his rear, he made me pull over so he can drive it.

I am very tempted to put back the factory downpipe and cat back on and just leave a "turbo back" system without a muffler. If I do that, the noise (and mileage) will go away and .... I like it. BUT I MISS THE POWER!

Would have been really cool if I could have passed him and made him eat smoke. His windows were open.

Proverbs 21:9 It is better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a nagging wife in a lovely home. Now you might not believe in God, Jesus or the Bible, but I'm sure you can appreciate the wisdom of that verse. Amen?

I don't know!!

Had I done the exhaust THEN did the chip, I wouldn't know the difference. But I did programmer FIRST, then did the turbo back w/cat delete and now I see a HUGE loss of power.

It's got to be a back pressure issue. The AFE muffler can go high flow or low noise. I might just flip it to see if I get any back pressure out of her.

Good Kill, uh Keep Up! Next time put your left foot on the brake and build a little boost before the light changes, not to much, just a little seeing as you dont have 4x4. He will really do a doubletake!

I agree.. a 1200 to 1500 rpm launch from you (you have to feather off the brake and onto the accellerator as you take off so you don't spin) will make that race a whole lot closer. Practice some launches when you get a chance.. and next time you can really make him go

I was very happy to keep up and the look was priceless. I learned how to launch my Mark VIII with the brake and then just LEAP out. I never thought of doing that. Can't wait to go to Irwindale Raceway and see what I can do in a 1/8th mile.

I'm praying to be under 9.5

Not to squash the fun here but I know a guy who had (notice had) done 30-40 4wd 10 psi launches and puked his torqshift. After a $3500 repair bill he no longer does that. Posting this just to be the messenger. Has anyone done that many or more and had issues w/ his tranny? He had an '04.
Nice keep-up by the way...
