Steeda breaks 12-second 1320 with CAI

The key players in the Ford Mustang aftermarket keep on tweaking, tuning, and testing the 2011 Mustang GT in order to squeeze a bit more juice from the car that already produces a formidable amount of power straight off the assembly line.  Steeda Autosports has been designing a proprietary Steeda Cold Air Intake and a Steeda Performance Tune in order to break out ahead of the rest where it counts: at the track!

The Steeda CAI kit, when matched up with a set of Nitto 275/40/17 NT05 Drag Radials, was able to rocket the Steeda Mustang down the 1/4 mile strip at South Georgia Motorsports Park just under the 12-second mark with a 115mph trap!  So just how did the car sound?  Who drove the car (because we all know the best mod is the driver mod!)?
