Default 2011 Mustang V-6 Auto

I am dealing on a 2011 Mustang V-6 auto. I want to bracket race it and possibly race stock with it. Do you think this will be competitive in stock. Not trying to set records. Just want to be competitive. Thanks any input will be appreciated.

Well, I have no experience with this combo at all. THAT being said, it has LOTS of compression, LOTS of valve area, good valve lift and a good sized throttle body. It will run J-K-L so IMHO it won't be a killer at 260 HP and it won't be cheap but it should run well.

My Brother and I started a build on a 1997 Mustang convertible V6 for Q,R or T/SA 232 CID 150 HP NHRA rated 170 Putting together 8.8 rear with 5:13 at the moment, we believe will be able to run the index easy enough. Also using a C4 tranny. Will have to install roll bar due too rag top. Good luck with your build.

I think you are mis-taking what Billy is saying... NHRA has the HP at 260... it matters not what Ford sold the car as. With an NHRA rating of 260 Billy does not feel like it will be a rocket against the index. We all realize it probably makes more than 260 that doesn't necessarily mean it's a competitive combo compared to others.. should be okay but probably not a combo where you can go 1.00 under without considerable testing and $$.

It seems to me to be a combo much like the Foxbody we have. Can be fairly solid with enough $$ but will never be a rocket ship against the index no matter what we spend. Still a fun car and we beat it to death as a bracket car...

It's more than paid for itself bracket racing which is much more than most stock/SS cars can say.
