I picked up this car in early 2016 while my other project car (2009 G8 GT) was down due to transmission failure. My goal is to build a NASA AIX mustang race car I can compete with. In the interim I’m going to have fun with it as a street and track day car while building it.
Horsepower: 663whp Uncorrected, 613whp SAE
Torque: 521ft-lb Uncorrected, 496ft-lb SAE
Tires Ruined: 2
Oil Changes: 3
