Man, sounds great...and runs great . Car really pulled well in 4th gear...never really slowed down .
Sounds like fun .
I for one am curious how your engine will hold up, with all the abuse you will be putting it through this year...drag racing and auto cross...and DDing.
Alot of people are like "I have 30,000 miles on my blown GT with not one single problem" but they dont say how often they go WOT or how often they go racing, ect. I like what your doing here....dont baby it, treat it like you would a N/A GT and see how it performs. Race it and enjoy it....thats what its all about. And we all learn in the process.
Anywho, I was thinking, have you thought about just getting a busa....throwing a turbo on it and wasting ALL of your friends cars for <20K? I know your friends have some seriously fast cars....but they arent 16X 1/4mile trapping turbo busa fast . Just a thought and then you can keep the stang as a DD. To get a car to keep up with them...it just really cant be a NICE DD without a crap ton of money.
A turbo busa would still get 45+MPG and you could drive it on nice clear weekends like any weekend car.
