Assuming a 15% DT loss this is 515/529/535bhp, which is MORE than advertised no matter how you look at it. Who would have thought all it needed was to be broken in? 🧐

There have been a few tests that have shown very little gains with the carbon traps removed, but a majority of the test do show decent gains. Next question is can you put the carbon traps back in for smog testing?

I cant imagine them even checking the intake tract for them.

Did you notice the method he used to remove them? I’d be tempted to buy a second stock set for ‘testing and evaluation’ on a closed course of course.

Okay - maybe the numbers aren't 85% but my point still stands. I've seen a significant number of people claim the new Mustang is slower/less powerful than the previous generation when it's been repeatedly proven that is not the case and why.

I knew first impressions meant everything but man, did this one get screwed up.

Yeah agree with you on the HP- I 100% believe these cars are making the advertised HP

I think we need more data point on 1/4 mile times- lets see in a few months when the weather cools what they are running

Or we need a video - same day same driver same track - both cars have same transmission and same rear end

Need more data points before final verdict

I think everyone was expecting it to be .3 to .4 seconds faster so when the times didnt reflect that everyone jumped on the "its slow" band wagon

A little more power, a little more weight (too many factors with the video showing the cars being weighed- not same gas in the car/ aftermarket parts such as wheels exc) so going strictly off what magazines say on weight

I think the cars will run very similar times in the end- probably who ever gets the jump will win ...thats my guess- but it wouldnt be the first time I was wrong (just ask my wife lol)

Given the higher emissions requirements....I would say relatively same times is a major win and if the S650 is faster- even better- just happy to have a new gas powered Mustang available should something happen to mine
