Default HRP Sunday 9th?

I might head out to Houston Raceway Park this Sunday (gates open at 4pm) to get some baselines on this completely stock '06 Mustang GT. Weather should be warm, but low humidity. Forecasted highs of 78F.

Then the STS turbo shows up in the next few weeks. I need some before/after results

Let us know how you do. Not sure I can get a kitchen pass but would be fun comparing a manual with my automatic. I could always throw in the stock tuning to even things up.

I've been thinking about it. My a/f is at 10.8:1 and I'm needing more TnT time to creep up and get it around 11.5-11.8:1. It's just such a long drive out there these days and if the car breaks, I'm screwed.

As I've gotten older, the motivation to drive ~1.25 hrs each way has dwindled steadily. However, I know the longer I put it off, the longer the car is slower than it should be, even with the pud 2.5" exhaust.

A few friends of mine should be out there, an '87 GN and a '98 Z28. If I can get off work I'll be out there, too.

track was hooking like hell. The 06 GT of Tony's did not like that too well. 14.0 or something was all it would muster out of it :o|
