I was wondering if my tC with I/H/E would be able to beat a Stock 2005 Mustang V-6 in a 1/4 mile drag race?

My tC is running a 15.5s quarter mile right now (I'm getting pretty good at the track (.42 reaction times)), and is probably pushing about 180 horses at the crank.

The Mustang V-6 makes 210 horsepower at the crank but weighs about 450 lbs more. I'm surprised that the best the Ford could pull out of a 4.0L V-6 was 210 horsepower. The 350Z's 3.5L makes close to 300 horse power.

I think that it would probably be a drivers race.

I read an article in an import tuner magazine a month ago that dynoed a tC with pretty much the exact same mods as my tC. Same brand of CAI, same brand header, different brand axle back exhaust (but they all are basically the same). All things installed the tC dynoed an increase of 16.5 wheel horsepower (best of 3 runs).

That's where I get my estimate of about 180 crank horse power.

I also noticed a difference in my E/T each time I went to the track with a new part installed. The fastest I was able to run stock was a 16.1s 1/4 mile. Now I run a 15.5s 1/4 mile. Be mindful, still on stock/crappy tires.

Still, would it be a good race between a tC with I/H/E and a stock 2005 V-6 Mustang?

ok lets break it down

stock tc= ~140hp

CAI= at most...10hp(Injen)

Exhaust=at most...5hp


Header= at most...6hp

Even though those numbers were not dyno proven, the products give an average of those numbers. So show me where a ~170hp can beat the 210 hp, even with the 450lbs extra weight

And now adjust for the fact that the I/H/E really only probably adds about 10 HP.
thank you.
