    Did better then me, I ran a 16.05, 16.06, 16.16. I have the auto also. The weather at my track really sucked too. It was in the high 90's.

    **edit** OH yeah... the car seemed really consistant because the difference between the 16.05 and 16.06 was a .005 second haha. The 16.16 time was the worse because I somehow lost traction at the starting line and pretty much did a burn out there haha.

    Yeah...

    Hot humid weather does nothing for drag racing.
    My '05 V6 has managed a best time of 15.44 at Memphis.
    All I have done is the drop in K&N Filter. Gonna try a XCal2 this week. I hope to make a run with it on Thursday.

    http://www.memphisredneck.com/todd.mpg this is me in Memphis on a bad night. 15.80's all night long.

    look at it this way, in the 1/8 mile you are in the high 9's, now the older fox body tangs with street tires and factory gearing, only ran low 9's 1/8 mile times, so for a heavy v-6 car with less hp and more weight, these times are all really good, i'd say anything under 16.00 1/4 mile is great for these cars, automatic or stick? good job.

    yes i know, but even being a stick, those times are not that bad. i am assuming you were running your street tires and all the street equipment still intact? spare tire, jack, passenger's seat? those times are not bad with a v-6. ok, i had an 04 dodge ram with the hemi, 3.90 gears and lowered in the rear 4 inches, and it ran 9.70 and (2) 9.80's in the 1/8. and that's a 6000 pound truck with the spare still on. so congratulate yourself, the times for your v-6 mustang are not that bad, now when it cools off, run it again, and you will probably be in the low 15's, not bad at all. what did the wifey's auto run?
