10 second "stock" 5.0 coupe!
First 10 second pass in my project coupe. Has a stock 5.0 intake modified, 10 hole wheels, and tail pipes. Yes it has other stuff done to it, but appears mostly stock outside and under the hood.
For those that just don't get it and can't read the replies in the comments section the car isn't bone stock. A bone stock foxbody Mustang won't run into the 10s even with Nitrous. Mid 13s maybe with nothing at all done. Add gear, slicks, Nitrous and 11s are doable as I've done that. The stock in the title is in quotes. It's built to appear stock inside, outside, and under the hood. The car is currently getting a major overhaul and will hopefully run well into the 9s while still appearing mostly stock..."stock". ;) The setup in this video was: Edelbrock Performer 5.0 heads untouched, TMoss ported lower M3 casting stock lower intake, (cut, ported, shortened stock 5.0 upper intake), 70mm TB and EGR, 24lb injectors, Comp nx264 cam, 175HP shot Nitrous, decent suspension setup, 28x9 slicks, 4:10 gears, T5, and hard driving. It's a very basic setup that works.
