10-Second All Motor Mustang GT – Street Hits

April 6th, 2021

We’re headed back to the Sunshine State tonight where we’ll meet up with Austin Rodriquez and his 2018 Ford Mustang GT at Palm Beach Dyno. Austin has posted a best elapsed time of 10.1-seconds @ 136 mph in the quarter-mile, but tonight he will be taking it to the street for some roll racing hits against a nitrous Chevrolet C5 Corvette and a Nissan GT-R with full bolt-ons running E85 fuel.

This stunning Mustang GT has undergone some significant mods, but Austin is yet to include ant type of power-adder. That’s right – no nitrous, no blower and no turbocharger. The 2018 Mustang GT comes equipped with a 460hp 5.0-liter V8 engine. The transmission is a 10-speed automatic. In stock trim, the Mustang GT could blast from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 12.9-seconds @ 118.8 mph (not bad for stock). Top speed was an electronically controlled 157 mph.

Obviously, Austin’s car is not stock. Key modifications include a set of Head Games cylinder heads. They are ported and polished, along with the Cobra Jet intake manifold. The camshaft has been upgraded and the stock exhaust manifolds have been replaced by a set of long tube exhaust headers.

After the exciting roll races, there are some bonus dig passes (at the track). Great car and a great video.
