    Ford poontang kill...

    I was minding my own business (cause we all know thats how everything starts) when a new body type ford mustang GT (the ones with hoodscoops) gets up close and personal behind me.

    Im thinking oh ok this could be fun. At the time we were stuck behind a huge line of traffic going about 35mph. This dude is riding my tail. Up about a 1/2 mile the road opens up into two lanes up a 8-10% grade. Im thinking this guy is gonna try to take me. I downshift to 2nd getting ready for the punch.

    The lanes open up and I hear the mustangs sweet exhaust roar. I punch it. He pulls even on the right up when his front fender meets my front bumper he stops pulling I start overtaking him. I wind out 2nd slam it into third... I glance over to my boost gauge .12 mpa @ 4500 it says as regulated By VS1 software. Steady pull through 3rd. Slam it into 4th steady at .12 mpa. Its a SLOW pull and we are almost accellerating equally. We are about to peak the crest of the hill for a single lane merge and we shut down. We take it up to about 110 and I am a good 4-5 carlengths in front.

    IMHO satisfying kill, enough for him to hear the boxer rumble thru my prodrive and read S-U-B-A-R-U on my trunklid.

    Thought it would be closer... oh well...

    No times yet... recently installed the software.

    But a ball park estimate would be low 13's. Most people running VS1 or TXSII setups are running around a 13.3.

    It is not unheard of with a good driver and an insane launch on a good day for this setup to net 12.9x's. From what I hear this is extremely difficult with only 2 people so far on this board in < 20% humidity on a cool day netting 12 sec passes.

    I need a new turbo

    It is... I drive around 40 miles every day.

    Just some detail about the setup...

    VS1/TXSII setups are middle of the road setups. They consist of stock turbos running stock fuel systems. The most expensive part of the setup would be the computer and software which makes power through fuel trimming boost control and timing changes.

    My setup is as follows:

    Vishnu XEDE Piggy back engine control module.

    Autospeed Crank Pulley

    Perrin Intercooler Hoses

    TXS Turboback Exhaust with Prodrive Rear section.

    Stock Gutted Uppipe.

    My goal is to get into consistent 12's in any climate which would require a VS2/ TXS4 setup which gives the car fuel system upgrades and a larger turbo.

    WRX's are extremely easy to extract power out of a simple exhaust and boost control device can up the power to the wheels 40-50 hp. No joke. Reduce spool from 3500 rpms stock to 2800 rpms with decatted up and downpipes and make the torque curve shaped like a brick from 2800 rpms up to redline.

    oh, I just wouldnt think a car with that level of mods/ aftermarket turbo would make for a very streetable daily driver. I know my GT is kind of annoying to drive daily/count on...

    If anything I would say these mods make the car easier to drive. Power is more readily available, and thottle response is much imporved.

    Beleive it or not when not on boost there is a noticable increase in highway fuel economy. Say a 1 mpg increase. Has anybody else with this setup noticed the same?

    Of course once that boost needle goes past 0 mpa fuel efficency takes a sharp dive

    The mustang drives pretty well for a daily driver. I put 50K miles in 1.5 years on mine with NO problems. In the snow, I get four 50lbs bags of rock at home depot and throw them in the trunk. The car you raced is not a poontang, rustang or whatever you call them, it's a Mustang. If your car is more modded than his, yes, you will win.
