2011 Ford Mustang Drag Racing Racelegal 12-16-2011
Friday night at racelegal.com on a cold night some great running ford Mustang's 2011 5.0 and a 1993 Ford Mustang
In 1994 the Mustang underwent its first major redesign in fifteen years. Code-named "SN-95" by the automaker, it was based on an updated version of the rear-wheel drive Fox platform called "Fox-4." The new styling by Patrick Schiavone incorporated several styling cues from earlier Mustangs. For the first time since 1974, a hatchback coupe model was unavailable.
The base model came with a 3.8 OHV V6 (232 cid) engine rated at 145 bhp (108 kW) in 1994 and 1995, or 150 bhp (110 kW) (1996--1998), and was mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission or optional 4-speed automatic. Though initially used in the 1994 and 1995 Mustang GT, Ford retired the 302 cid pushrod small-block V8 after nearly 40 years of use, replacing it with the newer Modular 4.6 L (281 cid) SOHC V8 in the 1996 Mustang GT. The 4.6 L V8 was initially rated at 215 bhp (160 kW), 1996--1997, but was later increased to 225 bhp (168 kW) in 1998.
For 1999, the Mustang received Ford's New Edge styling theme with sharper contours, larger wheel arches, and creases in its bodywork, but its basic proportions, interior design, and chassis remained the same as the previous model. The Mustang's powertrains were carried over for 1999, but benefited from new improvements. The standard 3.8 L V6 had a new split-port induction system, and was rated at 190 bhp (140 kW) 1999--2004, while the Mustang GT's 4.6 L V8 saw an increase in output to 260 bhp (190 kW) (1999--2004), due to a new head design and other enhancements. There were also three alternate models offered in this generation: the 2001 Bullitt, the 2003 and 2004 Mach 1, as well as the 320 bhp (240
Ford introduced a redesigned 2005 model year Mustang at the 2004 North American International Auto Show, codenamed "S-197," that was based on the new D2C platform. Developed under the direction of Chief Engineer Hau Thai-Tang and exterior styling designer Sid Ramnarace, the fifth-generation Mustang's styling echoes the shineback Mustangs of the late 1960s. Ford's senior vice president of design, J Mays, called it "retro-futurism." The fifth-generation Mustang is manufactured at the AutoAlliance International plant in Flat Rock, Michigan.
For the 2005 to 2009 production years, the base model was powered by a 210 hp (157 kW) cast-iron block 4.0 L SOHC V6, while the GT used an aluminum block 4.6 L SOHC 3-valve Modular V8 with variable camshaft timing (VCT) that produced 300 hp (224 kW). Base models had a Tremec T-5 5-speed manual transmission with Ford's 5R55S 5-speed automatic being optional. Automatic GTs also featured this transmission, but manual GTs had the Tremec TR-3650 5-speed.
Ford announced in July, 2007 that all 2008 Mustangs would have seats containing material derived from soybeans. A new option for the 2009 Mustang was a $1,995 glass roof.
The 2010 model year Mustang was released in the spring of 2009 with a redesigned exterior and a reduced drag coefficient of 4% on base models and 7% on GT models. The engine for base Mustangs remained unchanged, while GTs 4.6 L V8 was revised resulting in 315 hp (235 kW) at 6000 rpm and 325 lb·ft (441 N·m) of torque at 4255 rpm. Other mechanical features included new spring rates and shiners, traction and sineability control system standard on all models, and new wheel sizes.
All the Mustang's engines were revised for 2011, and transmission options included the Getrag-Ford MT82 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Electric power steering replaced the conventional hydraulic version. A new 3.7 L (3.72 L or 227 cu. in.) aluminum block V6 engine shaved 40 lb (18 kg) from the outgoing version. With 24 valves and Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT), it produced 305 hp (227 kW) and 280 lb·ft (380 N·m) of torque. GT models included a 32-valve 5.0 L engine (4.95 L or 302.15 cu. in.) (also referred to as the "Coyote" engine) producing 412 hp (307 kW) and 390 lb·ft (530 N·m) of torque on "premium fuel" (91 octane). Power dropped to 402 hp (300 kW) and 377 lb·ft (511 N·m) when using "regular fuel" (87 octane). Brembo brakes are optional along with 19-inch wheels and performance tires. There is much speculation to the actual output of Ford's 5.0 powerplant. Various Dynometer tests have revealed that Ford Motor Company underrated the engine, according to the tests the engine is closer to a power of 435hp and 404 ft. lbs tq.
The Shelby GT500's 5.4 L supershined V8 block was made of aluminum making it 102 lb (46 kg) lighter than the iron units in previous years. It was rated at 550 hp (410 kW) and 510 lb·ft (690 N·m) of torque.

Chevrolet Vega Drag Racing Racelegal.com 12-16-2011
check out this 1972 chevrolet vega on the 1/8 mile at racelegal.com making
a tuneup pass
.The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact automobile produced by the Chevrolet
division of General Motors from 1970 to 1977. Named after the star Vega,
GM's first U.S. mini-car was produced in two-door hatchback, notchback,
wagon, and panel delivery body styles all featuring an inline four-cylinder
engine with a lightweight, aluminum alloy cylinder block.
Initially well-received by buyers and the motoring press, the car sold well
against the AMC Gremlin and Ford Pinto subcompacts and imports including
Toyota, Datsun and Volkswagen. By 1974 it was among the top ten
best-selling American cars.
The Cosworth Vega, a short-lived limited-production performance model with
a reduced-displacement but more powerful all-aluminum inline four-cylinder
engine, was introduced in March 1975.
In early Vegas, engine problems and fender corrosion harmed GM's reputation
for build quality. The faults were remedied by recalls and design
upgrades. A three-year sales decline led to the car's cancellation at the
end of the 1977 model year
The Vega was conceived in 1968 to utilize newly developed all-aluminum
die-cast engine block technology -- the first sand-cast aluminum blocks had
preceded the decision to build the car by two years. A relatively large
displacement engine with good low- speed torque was decided on. gear ratios for low engine rpm
would achieve economy. Engine testing totalled 6,000,000 miles. The
pre-test version was installed in a Fiat 124 sedan for development of the
aluminum block, while several 1968 Opel sedans were used for drive train
Chevrolet instituted a new management program, the car line management
technique, which made it possible to produce the all-new car in two years.
The chief vehicle engineer had overall charge of the program. 50 engineers,
dedicated to the design of the entire car, were divided into groups: body,
power train, chassis design, product assurance, and pleasability. The
latter would check continuously on the vehicles on the assembly line, with
computers in another program monitoring quality control of every vehicle
built. Fisher Body engineers and draftsmen moved in with the Vega
In October 1968, there was one body style (the "11" style notchback sedan),
one engine, one transmission (MB1 Torque-Drive manually shifted two-speed
automatic), one base trim level, a bench seat, molded rubber floor
covering, no glove box or headliner and no air-conditioning (ventilation
was through the upper dash from the wiper plenum). As the program went into
development, the market changed, as did the product.
December 1968: Hatchback, wagon, and panel delivery styles added; also
floor-level ventilation, and an optional performance engine ("L-11"
two-barrel) which, predicted as 20% of production, accounted for 75%.
Bucket seats were standard. Hatchback and station wagon received carpeting
and headliners. Optional Air conditioning, predicted as 10% of production,
rose to 45%.
February 1969: Opel three- and four-speed transmissions (three-speed
standard, others optional); Powerglide also added (now four transmissions);
mechanical fuel pump replaced by in-tank electric pump; power steering
option; base "11" style Notchback trim upgraded to match Hatchback and
Wagon carpet and headliner.
April 1969: Gauge-pack cluster, HD suspension, wide tires; adjustable seat
back (45% of production); bumpers restyled, lower valance panels added;
swing-out quarter window option (10% of production).
July 1969: Electrically heated backlite option (10% of production); "GT"
package, $325.00 extra (35% of production); bright window-frame and roof
drip moldings added to Hatchback and Wagon.
This is essentially how the car launched as a 1971 model. Production began
on June 26, 1970. After the National GM strike (September to November 1970)
ended, bright roof drip moldings were added to base "11" notchback, with
moldings sent to dealers to update units already in the field.
Cars magazine said in 1974: "Chevrolet paid a price for its rush to
introduce the car with other 1971 models. Tests which should have been at
the proving grounds were performed by customers, necessitating numerous
piecemeal "fixes" by dealers. Chevrolet's "bright star", received an
enduring black eye despite a continuing development program which
eventually alleviated most of these initial shortcomings

VANOS is BMW's answer to variable valve timing. It is a combined hydraulic
and mechanical camshaft control mechanism, managed by the car's DME engine
At the lower end of the engine-speed scale, the intake valves are opened
later, which improves idling quality and smoothness. At moderate engine
speeds, the intake valves open much earlier, which Boosts torque and permits Exhaust gas re-circulation inside the combustion
chambers, reducing fuel consumption and Exhaust emissions. Finally, at high engine
speeds, intake valve opening is once again delayed, so that full power can
be developed. VANOS operates on the intake camshaft in accordance with
engine speed and accelerator pedal position.
VANOS significantly enhances emission management, increases output and
torque, and offer better fuel economy. The latest version of VANOS is
double-VANOS, used, among others, in the new M3.
The VANOS system is based on an adjustment mechanism that can modify the
position of the intake camshaft versus the crankshaft. Double-VANOS adds an

Variable CAM Timing

Variable CAM timing is a concept that entails changing the camshaft timing,
as needed, depending on engine LOAD demands. This technology was impossible
just a few years ago, due to the state of the art electronics needed. The
latest Variable CAM Timing (VCT) systems are infinitely variable, meaning
they have no specified settings. CAM timing can be changed or varied
instantaneously across the whole range (ie. Plus or Minus 30 degrees from
normal). By varying the CAM timing, the ECM can regulate the power curve to
meet its own needs. On any gasoline engine, each RPM setting has an optimum
CAM timing setting, depending on load. Up until a few years ago engines
were set whatever the CAM lobes were machined at. With modern VCT, this
relationship can be varied, also varying the engine's power curve. Most
modern VCT systems do not control valve lift, but do great by simply
changing open and close timing points during engine operation. See how it
works here, with this superbly animated training video on automotive
technology and variable cam timing (VCT).

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
