I have been racing my 5 spd. equipped, 2005 Mustang GT for the past two years. The Engine is bone stock, but I have most of the standard bolt-ons you can have. I recently jetted up my Zex kit to the full 175 hp shot and spent some time on the Dyno getting the fuel curves just right. Upgrading my fuel system with only an additional booster pump, we were able to safely make 460 whp with 580 ft. lbs. of torque. The following day at New England Dragway at the Tasca Ford Mustang Showdown, I ran an 11.25 et at 121.53 mph; with a 1.55 60 ft. The motor loved the additional power and I had no problems. I ended up making over seven passes, until they finally shut me down for no roll cage. Others are going the supercharger or turbo route and blowing motors, but my nitrous has been working perfectly with no motor damage at all. Many people have been following my build and they are amazed at my performance level, but I have to give the credit to you guys for the kit. It works well and I plan on getting the car deep into the tens next year with a stronger bottom-end and ported heads.
