Title: Kill of the Day: Ecoboost vs. the World
Post by: SRT82ECOBOOST on December 05, 2013, 07:42:56 AM
I am stealing this idea from a previous forum I was on, but should gain traction here. Basically I want to people to post up stories from any conquests they have had in racing their Ecoboost against any other brand vehicle. Whether it happened at the drag strip, Auto-X course or the streets of Mexico, post some tales of you surprising an unexpecting and probably cocky, non-Ecoboost owner.
I will start...I was driving on the highway in Mexico and came up on a late model BMW 535i. We started chasing each other for a bit until the highway opened up in front of us. From a speed of about 75 mph we both put the go pedal to the carpet. I was shocked how quickly the SHO reeled him in and continued to walk him until up to about 120mph. Probably had him by 4-5 car lengths and that was after starting from behind. Very impressed by the performance and I am amazed what a tune has done for this car.

It wasn't what he had in mind!  Actually, that was a 2012 GS Vette Heritage addition.  Had stick, but that was the best run he had all day.  I turned a 13.0. 

Had 2 - 12 second runs earlier including humiliating a Mercedes C 4d AMG 6.5 who turned a 13.5-6 but was asleep at the line.  Track was touchy. Some of us had no issues, including a 2008 LS3 Vette who turned a 10.9 @ 123 immediately after this run in the opposite lane.  I also had a Z06 beaten at the 1/8 but he powered by me for a 4 length win at like 119.

awesome !!!!!!!!  he was reeling you in but you still got him to the 1/4. Did he ever talk to you afterward ? lol

no one ever really wants to play with me I think everyone is unsure of what an SHO is, or what is has in it so they don't play out of fear they will get shown up by this Taurus. I did take out some nice new turbo diesel Porsche SUV that was pretty quick, either he thought he would take me or wanted to see what I had. And the only other vehicle I got to play with me was a gigantic F-350 4x4 Super Dually with giant mudding tires. It was the lateset body style and had a giant tail pipe but not tons of black smoke. That truck was pretty damn fast. We played on the highway I know he thoguht he would take me out, but I could reel him in and pass him but just cruising by even up to 130. Of course he probably had +1,500ftlbs of torque lol  Oh prior to being tuned I hung with a late model 5.0 stang on the highway that had at least exhaust it was real loud.

Everytime I get a decent vehicle to play with it's either raining or I have my wife, kids, passenger not cool with racing in my car....

He wasn't talking much to anyone all day, even though we were 45 min to an hour between runs.  I left immediately after that run and he followed me out, but went the opposite way at the hwy.  Don't think the car was supposed to be there.. it had MFG plates (Florida) on it.  Other Vette owners were commenting on how slow it was and how standoffish the guy was.  Just happened to get lined up against him.  No intent on my part...

This has been posted on this forum before.

One good thing about the Northern Virginia / Washington DC area...lots of high-end cars to destroy with my SHO. For example, I was one car away from stopping at a light beside a Tesla Model S on my drive to work this morning. Damn that SOB who stopped in front of me! I can't even begin to count the number of drivers I've left with confused looks on their faces after my SHO walked all over their M3s, M5, AMGs, Camaros, etc. Not very many SHOs around here though, to be honest I see more Ferraris and Lamborghinis than I do SHOs.

It was between the S4 (manual of course) and the SHO when I bought last year.

If it's a Tesla Model S P85, be careful.   That hits 60 in about 4.2 seconds.  Lesser Tesla Model S', no problem.

I've been that guy before when you just can't wrap your brain around what just happened to you. My buddy laughing his @$$ off didn't help me any when my supercharged 2000 GT stang got beat by a dune buggy with a moded old school VW bug engine with a 4bbl carb with two dudes wearing flame retardant suits and helmets whipped me from a dig as they rode a wheelie all the way through the intersection from a red light on a 4 lane major road in broad daylight with tons of cars and people around. My stang ran high 12's at that time but I was convinced something was wrong with it that run only lol

Well, I got my azz handed to me.....TWICE by a Lexus. I didn't catch the model, but I should have since he walked twice me pretty badly from about 70mph.
That never would have happened with my WRX.
I received my MYCAL from LMS but its so darn cold I haven't even gotten the codes to send them

I beat one on a Saturday afternoon on the 1/4 mile. I ran 12.22 at 114mph With my 2010 with 1.85 60 ft. He ran 12.88 at 110mph with a 1.93 60ft.
So about the equivalent of a tuned SHO without meth...
I'd like to try a LS-F when I get the XV1.
My guess is that onthe first 1/8 mile he'd be wtf!!! Lol

I've found that if I drive easy for a while and don't WOT for some time, then when I get on it of a sudden, the car seems to hold back.  Adaptive learning?  I now try to WOT a few times pretty often just to be ready- just in case -- In Mexico of course.

Such control!  On non-residential streets I now go WOT to 55-60 at almost every red light where i'm the first car (when it turns green of course.. :rofl2:)

Interesting info Dave, thanks. However, with the way I drive the car, I don't want the car to forget how it needs to be driven...
When I bougt it as a demo from the president of my dealer who had been driving it for a few months like a real grand father (he is 75y/o), I swear that when I wot it, the car had forgotten it had turbos, really!!!
Now, if somone would take mine, it is the opposite, it is very prime and just waiting to be "wotted"!

Resetting the Adaptive Driver Memory ? lot of info found in Google but not for our cars. I sent you a pm with the info I found but it was for BMW's. I wonder if it would work for our cars. My wife put puts around in my SHO almost daily to her 5:00am cross fit class. I'd love to erase her driving habits from the car, but it seems like my ture would turn that off, or not allow that ? Then again who posted in a datalog that it showed his SHO was 88% at wide open throttle ?? just saw that somewhere prob that thread you linked.... may need a new thread on this ??

Post by: DJE624 on December 06, 2013, 10:55:12 PM
PM received and answered. For sure 68.  I think a thread would be great to compile our knowledge of resetting throttles, transmissions, TPMS and whatever else.  Maybe a couple of our Ford guys and "pro" mechanics will offer some info.

While on the streets in Mexico last night...I had some kid in a turbo charged Scion looking to pick a fight on my way home. I was stuck behind him in the same lane and he kept trying to leave my in the dust, but I was stuck on him like he was towing me. Then when I got the chance when the lanes opened, I blew by him on a blast from 80mph to 125mph. He did not stand a chance and was easily walked.
I am very impressed by the pull that these cars have with a tune on the top end. Not many chances to get this kind of action, so I had to jump at the opportunity to school someone in the SHO.

Picking up my son from school yesterday, I worked thru lunch and Im grumpy, he has homework to do and Im on him about it so he's grumpy... We're about 1/2 home when I see a couple cars behind making D-Bag moves thru traffic cutting off other cars, I figured they were coming from the nearby highschool. Lead car pulls up next to me at the light, its a lowered, modded,Vinyl wrapped Nismo badged  350Z. Guys not a kid, 30's ish so he probably has some coin to throw at his pride and joy. Son and I have been sitting quietly for the drive glaring at eachother occasionally but then I say to him, "think I can holeshot this guy?" First smile of the drive from him. I throw a rev at Nismo guy, he has no trouble hearing it since I did the exhaust QuickSilver is plenty loud. Nismo hears it looks over and gets a confused look like, 'an SUV just reved at me??' Im already in sand mode like usual so I simply pull the selector down to M, brake torque it to about 1400 and wait for the light to change. Holeshot, yes, by at least a couple tenths, my son Jagger is laughing by now, things are looking up. I use the paddle to short shift into 2nd becuse I know bouncing off the limiter kills forward motion drastically and I figure he's probably gonna be coming aroind me after he makes up for sleeping at the light, but Im watching him out the sideview mirror and I seam to be increasing the lead. Hmmm. I hear him slam into his rev limitor 4-5 times BaaaBaaaBaaaBaaa!! Rookie. I stretch out 2nd all the way and just into third I'm still pulling away, prolly 4 lengths by now. Road here is 50mph and pretty open but Jagger and I both laughing our heads off now and we're going fast enough for surface streets so I let out of it and click 4th to quiet the exhaust. Any predict

Damn you Ipad, I hate you!

Any predictions what Nismo guy did next? Yep, ricer flyby with his foot still planted to the  floor. Typical, he didnt even look over. Best part is the car that was following him is BMW full of high school aged kids that pulls up at the next light with me. They're looking hard at QuickSilver and I say to the passenger, "You see that Nismo get OWNED by an SUV?". Kid says, "yeah, that was tite dude!"

Rest of the ride home was pure awesomeness with my son  8)

A couple weeks ago driving down the highway minding my business I see two cars coming up on me pretty quick. One was a v6 challenger and the other a looked like a 2006 charger RT(5.7)L. The challenger pulled of the highway but the charger pulled up so I accelerated just a bit to get his attention and within a few seconds I hear his car roar. I know he had an exhaust but not sure what else and I'm all stock right now. Now I know they're about a low 14s to high 13s but I was really impressed with how quick I started pulling on him! When I got on it, he was half a car ahead of me at around 70mph and I let off around 120ish and I was a good 3-4 car lengths ahead and pulling strong. He tried several times again and same results over and over. He was with his girl so I'm sure he was embarrassed but I couldn't have been happier!!

It was weird the first 3 days i bought the car i always seem to come up to lights with other sport cars lol. first really bad kill was a 2013 pony mustang the guy couldnt believe it lol. The first time i tried the paddle shifters a 2010+ s4 rolled up to me with exhaust and who knows what else the thing looked pretty sick actually but we both went WOT at the green i didnt even know how to launch at this point but i nailed the shifters first try and beat him by about half a car length but we only went to 90 kph. was super impressed cause that car sets the benchmark for sports sedans in my eyes.

The young saleman and my daughter are big Mustang fans and where talking bad about MY SHO. Day later after my SHO came out of service I TOOK HIM FOR A TEST DRIVE in my car. I came out the dealer @ 50mph in 3sec. Tune right on to the 2 lane back street(1/2mi long with 8 switch back). Out the dealer I told him to hold on to his socks, Turning on the side street I SHIFTED MANICAL and AUTO-CROSS MOD. I HIT 50-60MPH (in 25mhp zone) for 1/2mi. At the end the SALEMAN WAS HOLDING ON TO THE GRANDY HAND RAIL NEEDING TO WET HIS PAINS!!!!!!!!!LMBA He said HE WAS NOT TEST RIDING WITH ME AGAIN and he had NEW FOUND RESPECT FOR THE SHO!!!!!

I was driving (in Mexico) and there was a brand new (dlr tags still on it) Mercedes E500 with this little old couple in it in the passing lane, not passing but keeping pace with the car next to him(huge pet peeve of mine).  Well there was also a car in the middle and the right lane. I go back and forth from the passing to the middle lane for a mile or two until the right lane opens.  So I said screw this and passed on the right.   Well as I do, I notice the Merc that was doing 60 is not pacing me at 80 and then tries to take off.  I put the pedal down and look over as I do to see his wife giving him HELL.  After a few more seconds he's 5 or 6 car lengths behind me and finally gives up, deciding it was a lost cause.
Now.. was she giving him hell for acting like a jackass or was she giving him hell for losing to a car that cost $30k less than theirs?  ;)

Ok I blew thus one. Got caught with my pants down. Never really looked at a Tesla model S before. This one was different some kinda way. So left turn from red light. I purposely turn behind slow moving truck to get better look. SURPRISE! That Tesla took off like a bat outta hell. I jumped his bumper. Traffic now prevented a head to head battle. We both turned into residential area so no real victor here.

I read some of those cars are upwards of 400hp. An electric car? Ok, now I'm hunting for the next one!

I read some of those cars are upwards of 400hp. An electric car? Ok, now I'm hunting for the next one!

You would need some meth to keep up with the S model P85. They do low 12's in the 1/4 mile... But they aren't AWD. Very nice car and electric above all!

WHILE IN MEXICO...
It is funny as we humoristically mention that we were driving in Mexico when we do a street race lol... Just for you to know, I was in México City (for real) during 10 days... I go there every year to visit my in-laws and friends. This is a big city with 20M+ people and 8M cars! Many crap cars, but many nice ones too. I see many Ford's: Explorer are very popular, Escape too, Fusions, Focus, Fiesta... But in the last 4 years, keeping my eyes wide opened, I have only seen one Taurus 2010+. Actually, it was a police car 2013 lol. So, I just found it very funny when reading you guys saying that you were driving in México with a Taurus, when there are actually none to see lol! Just saying!
Cheers!

Ok I blew thus one. Got caught with my pants down. Never really looked at a Tesla model S before. This one was different some kinda way. So left turn from red light. I purposely turn behind slow moving truck to get better look. SURPRISE! That Tesla took off like a bat outta hell. I jumped his bumper. Traffic now prevented a head to head battle.

I've seen them but never studied them. He caught me totally off guard. But that link shows 4.6 to 60 mph. That ain't at all!

I've ridden in one before and they will pin you in your seat. Very quick out of the whole.

I haven't shared my one and only kill yet!
I was at a light on a 50mph road and I could hear this kid next to my in an mid 2000's Shelby Mustang convertible revving his engine like he was going to stomp on it at the light. I figured he had no idea the Taurus next to him was about to keep up! So I bring my car up to about 1200 rpm, just to launch a little bit harder and spanked him from about 0-60. When we got to the next light he asks: "Dang! How much horsepower does that thing have?" I responded with "enough". Haha. I'm thinking he was out out taking daddy's car for a joy ride. He probably came home with a new found respect for Taurii! I hope he told dad all about it. Who knows, maybe I made a sale right then and there!

I was driving (in Mexico) and there was a brand new (dlr tags still on it) Mercedes E500 with this little old couple in it in the passing lane, not passing but keeping pace with the car next to him(huge pet peeve of mine).  Well there was also a car in the middle and the right lane. I go back and forth from the passing to the middle lane for a mile or two until the right lane opens.  So I said screw this and passed on the right.   Well as I do, I notice the Merc that was doing 60 is not pacing me at 80 and then tries to take off.  I put the pedal down and look over as I do to see his wife giving him HELL.  After a few more seconds he's 5 or 6 car lengths behind me and finally gives up, deciding it was a lost cause.
Now.. was she giving him hell for acting like a jackass or was she giving him hell for losing to a car that cost $30k less than theirs?  ;)

That's a good kill.  If it is a new E550, that's a twin turbo v8.

Been shitty weather lately and today is the first day the roads have been kinda dry.
Stuck in traffic and two young kids in a older, like 98 mustang with exhaust done are revving engine and jumping forward... The next break I jumped behind to keep up for fun and they noticed..
Next light he pulled next to me and waved me forward..
Sooo
He must not of had much done because I crushed him..
Next light he rolls up with jaw on the ground wanting to know what I did to the truck...
It was fun..

So I had poll position at a red light when this new (non V8) bright blue ISF pulls up beside me and starts revving the engine and jumping the car... At the green I had him by a length at about 70mph when I shut down for the next red light.... Fun, and another schnitzel eaten.  Most fun was when he asked me at the next light what I paid!... his jaw dented the window frame.  LOL

1/8th mile track 4 miles from me, nice cause I'm to heavy to beat some cars in 1/4. Killed several, Mustangs, Camaros, even a few Vettes in 1/8 mile. I had one kid in a fox body come up against me, His buddies were pointing and laughing. I was LMFAO when I rolled back to park after beating him by .7. For some reason he was the only one in the group that didn't ask me about Flex

Not sure if it qualifies as a kill but played with a new Acura TL-SH AWD.  We were going down the freeway, in Mexico,  playing back and forth with each other. There was a clear stretch and we both went for it from around 60mph to 120. By 120 he was several car lengths back. It was entertaining watching his face as he floored it and I just kept pulling on him. I feel all special having two 'premium' cars in as many months watching my tailpipes.

I agree with dmharvey79 about Northern Virginia. Some amazing rides in these parts. AMG's, M's, S's are everywhere.
I've ran a Pontiac G8 GXP, and held right with him, side by side and he was none too happy.
I've ran with a Maserati Quattroporte, while the driver beat his steering wheel as I hung beside of him. The engine note of that car sounded awesome, as my SHO was silent as usual.
I did get to watch a Mercedes CLS63 AMG walk off and leave me on a long straight stretch, but, hey, its a $100k+ car.
And of course, I've had M3 & M5 owners who were shocked at the performance of the SHO too. Often dropping back, I assume to read the emblem to see what was hanging with their cars.
Then I have those luxury owners ride in the SHO and are always amazed that it is a Ford.
The SHO is pretty awesome, and after 4 years, still love it! And at a price of around $40k and near equal features (plus AWD), it sure has bang for the buck!

Yesterday morning in mexico; I had a 92 Foxbody 5.0 next to me getting on the freeway, and was curious if he was going to get on it, being he was in the outside lane, and i was on the inside; Sure thing, it turns green and he takes off first, around the bend, and he clears the bend and steps on it; He was right by my passenger mirror til about 2nd gear shift (for him) and then pulled to where he was at my rear wheel.

Surprised my minivan beat his 5.0, as it was a very nice car with a nice sounding exhaust.

On top of it, Leaving school in mexico, a budy had a 96 GT, with exhaust/ intake, and not sure what else but we ended up in the front of the line at a light; I asked him if he wanted to go at the light. He said sure, and sure thing; AWD for the win, He spun (even has 17x10's) not even launching that hard.

OK, so if I *got* killed, does it still count here? :-[  I was coming home after midnight Thursday night from our monthly Shelby club meeting (in the Porsche no less) and rolled upon a group of 3-4 Hondas. First one rolled next to me, reved and it was on, he was no match.  Next guy in a silver Integra, he was faster but I still edged him by a couple car lengths. Last guy in a red Civic hatch, WAS THE FASTEST CAR IVE EVER ENCOUNTERED ON THE STREET!. He had me by 30 car lengths from 65-120.  I could smell the C16 he was running, but 600+HP in a 2100lb car is damned impressive, not that I'd wanna drive that car anywhere but down a 1320 ;)

I posted this in one of my other threads but I will post here as well. This was the first kill in the SHO. I had a lot of suprising kills in my AWD Fusion SPORT and it was a fun car but the SHO is just awsome especially with the Stage 4 tune. I beat a lot of mustangs and even hung with charger R/T's. I ran a best of a 14.4 at 97 witch I dont think was bad at all for that heavy ass car. Its a 3,700 lb car.

On to the kill...

"The car is running great now. The mid 2000's mustang found out how great last night. It was loud lowered and suposedly not stock. The guy even picked the fight. What he didnt know was I had the stage 4 tune. Man it wasnt even close. The next light I asked if wanted to go from a roll since I have AWD and he declined. I told him maybe next time as he drove away..."

Im sure I will get beat eventually but I cant wait for all of the other kills and looks when they get beat by a huge ass car...

beat a BMW 7 series a few nights ago.  don't know if it was the V8 (750) or I6 (740), leaning towards 750 due to the size of the wheels.  he pulled beside at a stop light me and kept inching forward, i responded and it was on.  got him by two fullsize MKS car legnths by the next light.  at that light he wanted to go again, so we took off and sure thing there was a cop on the right side (my side); luckily i only got to about 45 in a 35 and slowed abruptly.  the BMW quickly took a left turn, LOL...

shows how the traction of an AWD car often trumps (the so called always superior) RWD vehicles in the real world when it comes to take off...

I think I had the heated seats on that night as I had  'fairer sex' passenger riding shotgun 8)  The red honda spun the tires so hard mid pull, the crown of the freeway sucked him over to within inches of the dividing wall! I'll bet he coulda cracked Walnuts with his butt cheeks at that point. Clearly an experienced driver, he just eased it back over. A sudden correction and that drag-only rocket woulda spun like a top. Jeanie and I had a great view of the events unfolding, not that I would wish that ona 'fellow tuner' but it mighta been fun to watch  :thumb::thumb:

I had a Focus ST try to keep up with me on the expressway tonight. Needles to say he didnt fare well. He tried a few times and everytime I put busses on him. Have any of you guys run a ST yet? If so are they really that slow on the top end?

killed my friends cobalt SS the other day. Stage 2 upgrades on his I think. The supercharged version. We did to runs one from a stop which was obviously in my favor as well as one from 40 mph. Both times prevailed even though the second time was a little more closer than the first run. Still womped him though in what he calls my fam sedan :)

One of my biggest pet peeves is when other cars pace me for no apparent reason. This was occurring on a recent weekend trip in Mexico.  An Altima, Audi A5 3.0T and myself were traveling down the highway and both were pacing me after a few minutes (I had the cruise set and was passing them, both sped up).  So I bumped up to 80 and just passed them and slowed back down. I was going about my business when the Audi blew past me. I thought, "Game on" and caught back up we looked at each other nodded and hit the gas. I didn't get to see his face as, very quickly i was several car lengths ahead. After a few moments of this I stopped accelerating and let him catch up, he was in the same lane behind me. I think we were doing slightly north of 100.  I waved and hit the gas again and the car pulled hard and kept pulling hard until I let off the gas. 
A mile or so down the road I had slowed back down to what I was doing before all this started. He was getting off the highway next to me, looked over, smiled and gave a thumbs up.

Pacing.... Seems to be a human trait.  I'm with you, only crossing 3 lanes of traffic to quickly make a turn ranks worse with me.

Great that you had your ride to pull away!

Yes! Or the guy on the highway that has to pass you on the left just to immediately cross those 3 lanes to exit on  the right.

I believe you must mean A5 2.0T, not 3.0T... Otherwise it would have been an S5 and with your mods it would have been a closer race... But still you would have gotten ahead...

Hmm.. Perhaps.. I would swear it was 3.0T. Though it was after a very long 14 hour shift. Feeling a little silly now.. If it was just a 2.0t that's not much to write home about. :-P

I had a guy in a chromed out charger R/T try to play. He kept creeping up at the light but I wasnt sure if he was going to go so he caught me sleeping. It still didnt matter because after second gear it was over. He tried again at the next light and well needless to say I wasnt sleeping. He wouldnt even pace me after that.

That same day I had a guy in a EB F150 try to play and he was pretty cool. We ran and at the next light he laughed and said "I was expecting to get beat but not that bad, looks like I should have bought a SHO"!

I cant wait for summer so I can get some good races... I have a lot of friends with way faster cars so we will see...

I've had a similar experience with Mustangs.  One wouldn't run me at all...even after I made it clear I would.  The other guy was chuckling a bit at the stop light and I think he thought he was going to play with me because he started to go but I don't believe he was full throttle (maybe he was spinning at the line)  had a few lengths on him by the time I shut down at 80.  To be fair he was coming pretty hard and probably would have taken me eventually but it was fun to see the look on his face and he gave me a thumbs up...

(supposed to run 0-60 in 4.1 and 1/4 in 12.6) We ran twice to just over 60mph.  I had a solid 1/2 car on the guy both times. He kind looked like a drug dealer too lol. He pulled up beside me at the next light and remarked "why you driving so fast?" I replied "why you driving so slow?" Needless to day he was not impressed.

So I gti out today to do a couple quick runs hooked up to livelink to get some data to send Torrie at unleashed to have him review and I get stuck behind a slow escalade. To the left of him is a mid 2000s 540 BMW. Inside sit a couple of teenages listening to music. Well green light comes and the take off and of coarse the caddi in front of me is dragging a** so I had to quickly pass him up and come to the next red light lined up with the BMW. I'm looking at the computer in my passenger seat as I hear someone yelling so I look over and the passenger is waiving to lower my window. I open my window and he ask "what kind of car is that" as mine is debadged so I tell him it's a taurus and he said that's a nice car. The driver leans forward and says " why you driving it like its fast", so I reply and say because it is fast. He chuckles and says "oh ok" so at this point I'm ready to rip him a new one and the red turns to green and I hear his tires screech. Without hesitating I thought my foot was going to break thru the floor board as I was flooring it. By the time we switched from first to second I was a couple cars ahead of him. I let off around 70 and he was at least 4-5 cars back. We pulled up to the next red and the passenger was laughing saying he couldn't believe that I smoked him like that. Driver said nothing and needles to say he didn't attempt anything on the green light!

Made my night!!

There is a red light I always hit, and shortly there after the two lanes merge into one. Maybe an 8tg mile or so after the light. Most people stay in the left labe (right lane ends) but I always make it a point to be the first car in the right lane, just to see if anyone will try me. So far all I've got is a pickup truck with a tool box... I'll leave that outcome to your imagination.

I have a friend that wants me to race his buddies BMW 335i. I guess it has a tune and intake. He has ridden in my car a few times and with the LMS tune and intake he said it would walk on the BMW. Stay tuned for the outcome. We are trying to set up a time to go out and give it a go. I did see a guy today with I think a 2011 or 2012 SHO. It was nice, lowered tinted with a intake and exhaust. He couldnt remember what the name of the place was that tuned it (kinda wierd) but ok. It was a nice car. I told him he should join up here.

I also have ROUSH, Livernois, MRT, Lingenfelter, CDC, and many more places Im missing. I also live in a area where people are MOD crazy. I mean during the summer its not hard to find someone to play with (I cant wait to hurt some feelings BTW). When I had my fusion I always got messed with. Now with the SHO I dont get a second look. It seems even though our cars have been out for 4 production years a LOT of people dont know a damn thing about the SHO-MKS, or even Flex or X sport. I see a lot of SHO's everywhere and yet we still get no respect. I do kinda like that part of it though. I love the looks when they get beat. Is the 3.5 E/B still that far under the radar?

Looking at your mods, if you are willing, I would really consider lowering the car with H&R springs. That will cut you 0.2 sec. in the 1/4 mile with a better launch and better aerodynamic. I don't know what year is his STI, but the old ones run about 14 sec. and the recent ones low 13's. So, with a tune only (intake doesn't add power), you could and should win. Also, he is manual and you are auto, so you can't miss. Hopefully your tires are not all seasons and they still have a good thread... Good tires are good for another 0.2 sec.
A stock 2012 SHO non-PP on all-seasons would run about 13.6-14.1 sec and one with a tune, springs and good tires 12.8-13.3.

I have never seen an STI stock running the 1/4 mile under 13 sec.

Good luck and keep us posted!

I belittled a Dodge Charger SRT8 on my way to work this evening...Destroyed him on a 0-60mph pull from a light, couldn't even see him as I came out of a circle entrance ramp, and nosed him out on a 60-90mph pull a little further down the road. The driver looked confused and frustrated all three times.

I have the stage 4 LMS tune and I can do 0-100 in about 12 seconds. The stage 4+ is comming in the near future...

I didn't know that they still made the stage 4, I thought stage 4+ was an improvement of stage 4, so I don't know why one would choose stage 4... I had asked to modify stage 4 to add a bit of torque management, but to increase boost as well and stage 4+ felt much better for the car.

If you are stock, the driver of the SRT8 must have missed a shift, because from 60-90mph, the SRT8 is much faster than a stock SHO. From 0-60mph however, AWD is a no brainer, unless at the track with glue for him...
The trap speed of an SRT8 is around 114mph and your car is 103mph, that is a big difference.
Just don't bet against one on a roll based on that experience : )

The stage 4 is with the SCTX3 and the 4+ is the mycal. I have the X3 so the support isnt as good. Thats why most just get the mycal.

3POINTS... If you don't have the 4+tune now I don't think it's available from LMS... They are at v8 of the new tune series.  Of, course you can always get the mods to your tune Steve is speaking of just by asking.

You could just get a custom tune from Torrie since you have an SCT, do data logs and get a custom tune specifically for your vehicle based off of log feedback, IMHO much better overall way to go, no matter what anybody says about tables and sensors. :)

I STRONGLY believe that a tune that is made for your vehicle based off of log feedback from your vehicle is the BEST way to go. Torrie is the only guy tuning transverse vehicle that I know of right now so he's the guy. I know it worked well for my 600HP vehicle and it was on E85!

I just did the same exact thing.  I went from the old 4+ (now considered the 4 using the sct x3) to the my cal with the updated 4+ within a month or two ago.  I am very happy with the upgraded LMS tune.

I ran the Stage 4+ for over six months before I got it tweaked.  It is a safe and powerful tune.  The Stage 4+ was designed on a load bearing dynojet (along with real world street testing).   Quote from Livernois' website: "This allows for accurate tuning with integrated air/fuel and boost monitoring under real-world loading conditions. This means a safe tune with plenty of power."  The tweaks I am now running were based on my dyno pulls when I went out there last summer.  Sure, I had to go there for the tweaks but it was not necessary.  The Stage 4+ is an awesome tune in and of itself.  I also am not interested in doing logs on equipment that may or may not be accurate.  Nor do I have any plans for using E85.  So, I would recommend The MyCal Stage 4+ tune to anybody in a situation similar to mine.

Post by: 3POINT5 on March 27, 2014, 07:00:27 PM
The reason I have the 4 no the 4+ is I already had the x3 that I used with my fusion Sport. I didn't have the extra cash to get the other tuner with the 4+. Livernois will still tune it with the SCTx3and the tune works just fine. It just doesn't have the tuning capabilities the mycal. I live 20 minutes from LMS so I drove there and had them load me some tunes and called it a day. I will be getting the other tuner when I can sell my X3.

I originally had the SCT with Stage 4.  Very soon after bought the MyCal.  It's kind of funny because the reason I did go to LMS was that I complained about seeing any real gains.  They said "Come on out if you want and we'll show you".  They did.

I don't really agree with LMS statements it has more tuning ability than the SCT, that's a statement but there's not proof to that.
I'm hoping to dyno head to head soon, I'm sure Torrie will be excited for us to compare the SCT X3 tune vs the LMS tuner, I will always believe until proven side by side that a data logged tune is better than a canned tune for a car that's not yours.

You guys are way more familiar with the tuners then I am, but I can tell you that I've been running an early Stage 4+ tune from Livernois since July of 2011 without any problems and the performance is fine. I know I checked a few months ago, and LMS told me that there was no update to the tune I have, but I am completely satisfied with this canned tune, and I would be really, really surprised if there would be much "seat of the pants" feel with the MyCal vs the SCT tuner that I have (although without looking-I'm not sure which model tuner I own).

Mark, I think you and I have the same tune and, like you, I am very pleased with it.  I have communicated with LMS 2 or 3 different times about the possibility of going to the MyCal and really haven't gotten consistent answers on the benefit of doing so - unless I plan to run meth or go to a custom tune requiring a trip to the dyno.  I will not be doing either of those things.  Even if going to the MyCal 4+ would shave a smidgen off my ET, the benefit wouldn't be worth the cost to me.

From what I understand, the Mycal is able to access more parameters than the x3 thus a more fine tune.  The boost maintains longer into the rpm band than the previous 4+(now 4).  With multiple mods including Airaid, exhaust, 170* thermo and soon to be downpipes, it was a no brainer for me.

Post by: DJE624 on March 28, 2014, 05:52:49 AM
I believe that when it comes to tunes the question of better is relative.  Better could mean a little faster or better could mean safer.  Throw in ease of use and "plug and play" and you have another choice of preference.  There are plenty of guys on each side of this fence.  I am not interested in jumping that fence and I would suspect that most guys on one side or the other are not either.  I have already voided my power train warranty with my tune at 800 miles.  I have 8000 miles now.   I would rather stay a little back from the edge.

The Mycal for 2010-2012 is very nice with color screen etc. The one for 2013+ sucks... It looks like Atari2600 would have done a better job lol

I like the no touch mycal fine.  (I had the identical looking Hypertech unit for my Fusion.)   Every time I turned on the X3 I thought the circus was coming to town.  I hope they fixed that with the X4.  BTW, the X4 looks much better than the X3 and I like the smaller size.

I don't think it maters.  You could take either one, bump up the boost, advance the timing and lean out the fuel mixture.  For some, it's more about drive ability, ease of use and staying back off the edge.   Like I said, there are two camps here.  One willing to take greater risks for more power and one that is not.  There really is no debate or contest here as far as I can see.

data logging will get you better results and still stay safe that's the point of being willing to monitor every aspet of what the car is doing.

I have a LMS canned tune simply becasue I don't have the time to mess with datalogging and going back and fourth constantly with updating / changing my tunes. I beleive it's safe and now runs perfectly. Plus I only have apple product and dont really want o buy an android device just to data log my car even though I'm sure that means I'm leaving some minimal power on the table by running a LMS canned tune.

apples to oranges

that being said I would like to see a comparrison of LMS vs Unleased canned tunes, and I almost pulled that trigger a few weeks ago until I finally got my LMS tune updated to run perfectly and stronger on the highway / upper rpms with my V73bar tune update.

al that being said to do it over again I personally would probably try to figure out a way / time to datalog but now I don't want to bother with the added expense and time commitment to do it for the minimal gains. I don't want to start over for maybe a .15 extra ET, 2or3 extra MPG, or cleaner exhaust tips.

The key is to verify knock counts on ANY tune, if you aren't data logging on a twin turbo high compression motor after tuning it then it's a mistake. You could be having low level knock all the time, over long periods of time it will impact your motor longevity.
http://www.peugeotlogic.com/info/info1.htm (http://www.peugeotlogic.com/info/info1.htm)
Why am I adamant that you datalog? Here in AZ if you just run X tuner's tune (pretty much anyone) that hasn't bee modified for AZ fueling/heat and lack of octane you'll be pinging pretty much all the time. Lots of damaged motors here due to midwest/east coast tuners assuming they know what are fuel is like and then finding out it way worse than they ever thought.

Pick your poison.  Bottom line, a car will run differently on the dyno versus on road.  Most of the drag racers I see at the track are logging live data.  Not basing tunes off dyno numbers.  Lol.  I have seen it personally on multiple platforms.  Like who you like and have fun.

I don't see how the device could make more power.  The power will be in the person tuning.  No different than two guys with a timing light and a set of jets.  It's the experience and the knowledge of the person using the device which will make the power.

I have LMS tunes in both EB vehicles.  I will be purchasing a 3bar and a tune from Torrie for the SHO as I'm hearing and reading LMS will not support a tune upgrade with 3bar with the SCT device.  If Torrie had been tuning the Explorer Sports 4 months ago I would've bought the tune/tuner from him.  IMHO the mycal is a very cheap device compared to the SCT 3 and most definitely compared to the 4.  Has a tiny screen, no backlighting, can't datalog....it's just a device to load/remove a tune, nothing more.

Me and friend were leaving work at the same time and he was talking about spanking my SHO with his STI... He was kidding of course. He knows how fast these cars can be. We found a spot to do a quick little run. With his mods his car should run high 12's. He still has his winter tires on so we went from a about a 20 roll. I stayed a fender ahead the whole time. I told him we need to do a dig race when he puts his other tires back on so I can get him by a car. Of course he wanted to so he can get another shot at the SHO.

I toyed with a bran new looking Porsche Panamera S, and kept him at bay from 80-120 :) He couldn't pass me. I took off he and followed suit and stayed right at my back bumper. I could have been pulling a tad it was hard to tell and I was getting over excited shifting early with my paddle shifters. I'm sure I would have been better off just running him in "D" but I was already in "S" mode trying to annoy him runing around in 4th :)

I don't know what version Panamera it was but I beleive all the S versions are turbos. I think there is also a faster 4S but I couldn't tell what it was it just had Panamera S on the back.

Wish I could have raced him from a dig might have hurt his feelings more ??

Alright, definately not an amazing kill, but a kill none-the-less. 2006ish Mazda RX-8 peels out at a light next to me and I'm like why not? Pulled 3 cars on him, and shut it down to turn. He then does the classic stroke job fly by at like 80+ or so. The race was over, I haven't seen that maneuver in years.

I got my first kill with the LMS 93 v8 tune today, and it was a beauty. I was following a guy in a new Impala SS (nice looking car, aftermarket wheels, forum sticker across back window, etc) as we exited one highway into a s-curve ramp to another highway. As we enter the ramp I can see that he's pushing his car, trying to leave me in the dust, so I stick with him at a safe distance (not hard at all) and he notices. As the ramp straightens out and splits into two lanes he nails it so I do the same, quickly closing the 5-6 car lengths between us and putting another 5-6 car lengths between us before I decide to back it down. The guy rolls up next to me and I give him a thumbs up, but no reaction from him, haha. I set my cruise and he goes on down the road. A few minutes later we're beside each other at a light and I have no doubt he's going to try and redeem himself...NOPE, not happening, haha. I let him get a good jump and then I totally destroyed him. Again, thumbs up / nothing, haha. I'm glad he could meet the SHO on my drive in to work today! (-:

Looking in my rearview I see a newer 370z closing in so I zipped  off to get his attention. He closed in behind me I paddle shift to 4th then roll into the gas to see if he'll try to keep up. I slowed and he catches up. Determined to get past me he tries to weave traffic around to get on by. I think people don't know or are afraid to try and get their feelings hurt by a Taurus. I'm patient I know the roads I'm not going to let him out of it now were going to find out. I gave him enough crap until he finally got some room and he punched it from about 80 thinking he was going to leave me in the dust once and for all I guess. So I reeled him in from 80-130 slowly but surely closed the 15 lengths he took off from to about half. I was happy and he knew I was running him down. Then he went on like a maniac. Would let me next to him again :) nice car with a cry baby driver.

I don't understand why they do the maniac driving. I beat a 5.0 Fox body getting on the freeway, and man did it sound nice. But he held my passenger back tire from 30-"speed limit" and then when i backed off, he went flying by and drove like a maniac and we both got off on the same exit, and he drove like a bat out of hell

Well on the way home from HHI, I had this punk kid in a turboed Honda crappy Civic climb up my butt.  I was passing a couple cars, didn't see anything behind me, then looked again, there he was.  I waited till he tried to go around me, but that didn't happen.  I looked in my side mirror, and that were he staying behind me.  Guess he was going "OH CRAP" when he realized he wasn't getting around me.  Man, I love this car!!

For this race in Mexico it was the best case for me to compare my new ride with my former ride, a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8. A buddy of mine sold his Jeep locally and I have seen it around town. It has roughly the same mods I had on mine, cam, long tubes and bolt-ons. So I am weaving through traffic heading out of town and who do I end up seeing, but that nasty looking silver Jeep with a license plate that cleverly spelled Deceptive. I blow by him to see if he will play and he took the bait. I am just hoping at this point that one of the next two lights sets up for us to race and it works out perfectly at the first light. Light goes green and we both launch. Not my best launch as I left just from idle as there was no time to increase idle as the lights changed so quick and I was trying to get Advance-Trac off. We are literally neck and neck with no car gaining or losing an inch until about 80 mph where I start to walk him a little. We shut it down, I give him the thumbs up and returns the gesture and honks when I turn off. Just really impressed the SHO could keep up with a Jeep that easily does 8.0x to 8.1x at our local 1/8 mile track and probably does just about the same on the streets.

I would think a cammed Jeep should win this race, no?  I would expect my Jeep to be .3-.5 seconds faster than my Sho if it had a cam in her.  Regardless it sounds fun, I never see other Jeeps or Sho's to play with.

So here I am, 7:00AM on a nice cool Saturday morning in late June, and I have just picked up my detail guy and best friend (Eric Witt owner of www.trushine.net (http://www.trushine.net) ) to take him to his shop to polish my paint and make it look brand new.  I told my buddy when I picked him up, "I hope we get to mess with some poor unsuspecting souls on the way..... So we are just rolling down the interstate with the windows down, sunroof open, and tunes playing, when all of a sudden a dodge charger R/T 5.7 flys up behind me (I am doing 80 in a 55 already...... in Mexico of course) and I just stayed in the fast lane hoping to make him a little mad..... it worked... he pulled up next to me and just stayed there..... so he is looking over at a bone stock SHO at this time with 2 dudes riding with the windows down and jamming to some Bon Jovi, Living On A Prayer....not really, but anyway, I give him a little down shift and lurch the car forward.... he bites!  We hear him kick down and "take off", so he got a jump on my and pulled a half car on me before I even knew he was going.... so I kick down and take it from 80-125 pulling on him HARD, I ended up about 15 car lengths in NO time.... My buddy said.... "he must have had the V6 version"  I quickly reminded him that it was the 5.7L.... So the guy pulls back up and rolls down his window and says "What the **** is that thing???"  Which I politely reply "It's just a Taurus"  He tipped his head down and said "Well done...... well done"  NOW I am running the LMS stage 4 tune..... smoking M3s.... SRT8s...... 5.0s....... old school viper (not kidding)...... I love LOVE LOOOVE this car!

I got called out by a high school kid in a 2012 civic si.  Told him to saddle up and lets do some hits from 30mph and at least one from a standstill.  So we went to Mexico and were cruising at 30, I honked three times and off we go!  Whats that?  Your're up half a car length on me?  Ok better push the pedal all the way down instead of half way.  Wanted to give the kid some hope.  So the turbo's spooled up and I blew past him like he was in a, well, civic lol.  We came to a stop and he asked me if my car had a turbo.  I said no, it has two!  He still wanted some but from a stand still.  We lined up, I held my RPM's at 2,000, and Houston we have lift-off!  It reminded me of the killing the guys on Street Outlaws do when one of them loses traction and the other hooks up and takes him by 10 car lengths.  Needless to say it was a fun educational moment for the poor kid!

I went from a civic si to the SHO. There is no comparison in power. Mind you I enjoyed the Civic but the SHO would just eat it for breakfast.

I had a civic si pull up next to me at the light while i was in the turning lane.. i gave it just a little creep forward to get his attention since he was tooling around like a bro. Once the light turned he displayed a unimpressive failure of traction and to my left on the other side of the intersection was a cop.... hah. Should of seen the look on his face. Priceless.

I meant to write this one a few weeks ago, but yesterday, I met that guy that I had raced in April again... And we did a rematch!
We are in Mexico for sure.
In April, I was at a gas station and I see a guy coming out of his Porsche 911 Turbo white with black stripes. A beauty (the car not the guy lol!). I asked him if he liked his car, if it was fast and he told me yes and yes. Plus he told me it was tuned and had about 650HP. Cool! I said I had a less pretigious car, but if he didn't mind, I'd like to see what I could do against him at a red light. The guy was a player and he accepted. We got out of the station and lined up at the stop sign. He asked me to leave when I was ready... Lol he was not expecting that! Twin turbos with no lag, 0-60 in less than 4 seconds... His Porsche is potentially fast, but it has a lag and it is standard... I let go at 60 and we lined up again at the second stop (boulevard). He told be F--k!!! We did it a few times and honestly, I was right beside him the whole time until 80-90... then I was letting it go. After that he would pull on me, but on a boulevard, even in Mexico, it was fast enough.
Yesterday, I was with my brother-in-law (who is Mexican for real!) and I saw that same guy again on the same boulevard, woohoo! I was giving a ride to my bro-in-law, so I made a U-turn.
The guy was with two pretty girls and he told me that he was talking about my car to the girls 20 minutes before, so what a coincidence! I asked him if he minded to race again so that I could show my bro-in-law a real race, no problem he said...
Exact same scenario as the first time!
So, basically, his car has more power, but he is not the best driver in town. At launch I have him, he catches me back, but then he shifts and my car pulls ahead, he goes in front and then shifts again... Not that bad, but he told me that his next would be auto double clutch! Lol!
I love when people are not pretencious and like to play a bit. 2 thumbs up for his car, one thumb up for him!

Staying in the same zip code as a 911 TT even in stock form is impressive.  Would be a different story I'm afraid with the new 911 TT S, which is PDK only.  Those things are sub 3 seconds 0-60.   But it costs around $200K, so it better be fast lol.

My only real test was against a nice guy in a ws6. He had followed me through a couple stop lights.   Than he pulls up next to me and asks if it's a SHO. I tell him yes.  He responds it seems pretty fast. Do you wanna run.  Now I had my wife and her sister with me .. she is all for this btw.  I ask if he has anything done to it.  Says about lid and Nos but the bottle is empty . I smile and simply reply your gonna loose. He was shocked at my statement.   We take off run tp to 60-70. Didn't wanna get to crazy as I had passengers and would be turning in a mile.  Easily pull the win.  I slow down and he is smiling and shaking his head gives the thumbs up and we go our own ways.

As I ventured out to find something for mounting the tablet to run torque on (in mexico of course). I find myself at a large intersection sitting at the light by myself. Start looking in the mirrors to see if anything worthy was pulling up and notice a vette in right turn lane, blinker on and said shucks. To my surprise it jumps out of turn lane and lines up dead even with me. Not wanting to scare away(lol) the vette I leave the line off boost and watch vette jump a car. HAMMER time, instantly real em in and take a length. When I let off at a 100 I was 2 cars up!!! Had know idea who was driving vette until we pull up to traffic and LADY from vette almost rear ends car next to me to yell out that she needs to learn how to drive better.

Just noticed some blackening on seams of both the mufflers today that doesn't look good though.

Weird that the tips don't get that bad. I mean there's some there but not much at all. Stinks that I had torque running for first time today and was on way to get mount when encountering the vette (in mexico)...under WOT later(mounted tablet), saw -4 knock (think that's a good sign)

Yeah negative is always a good sign. I just did a run and pulled +4.5 which must mean I don't have enough corn mix in on the other half of the tank. :(

That fuel mixing sounds touchy for sure. Only having the SHO a few months now, I'm not gonna try that until other mods have been added. Most knock I saw at anytime yesterday was a +1 that I had to do some erratic pedal pushing while coasting to get.

Gonna have to say the tablet must be a good luck charm, every time I visit mexico, and had a nice little run next to a mercedes ml63 amg today...Pulled up to light with thick traffic behind and a ctsv right on my a$$, but open Mexican roadway ahead. Pull out a little on the throttle and no play from the caddy, but said mercedes hidden a couple lanes left of me, takes off hard!!!! No idea what it was until I pulled up at next light with him being stopped (he took off hard from first light not letting off) already and me not chasing him all crazy. I didn't even get to stop as I was coming in sort of quick hoping to get staged up. No such luck, as he jumped out 2 cars as I was braking still. As I hammer down the SHO leaps out chirping the tires hard and the 2 cars begins to shrink ever so slowly. Gained half a car on the initial cars given in uneven takeoff. As I pull up next to the older gentleman he is staring over as to see what the hell is that. That little suv/sports ride is fast!!!

DON'T TELL MsSHOman, But today (the 1st she let me drive it) I had to go SPANK a Audi A4 with 3 riders in it. Me in her 1.6L/EB ESCAPE. I'm at the light for a very long/wide bridge over the expressway. A Audi A4 with black out look, lower ride, and loud pipe, roll-up on me and I ASK WHAT YR HIS A4/ IT LOOKED GOOD. The light went GREEN and I went to 2000rpm as he hammer down at about 3-4000rpm and got a lot of noisy but only had the front wheel in front of my bumper and I PUT THE HAMMER DOWN and 300ft later I'm a car length in front him. Before I tune on the freeway. 1.6L EB vs A4  1 TO 0 lol.

As we spent our night without kids jumping back and forth from Verizon store to Verizon store trying to fix the wife's 5 week old S 5 that suddenly quit making calls out of nowhere. We were strangely detoured into Mexico where this guy pulls out in front of us, as we sat at light, spinning his tires and exercising the sound of his pipes. No fishing needed as this guy was eyeing us. Promptly catch him 2 lights down and we're both lined up at light. I barely got stopped and light turns, he jumps out at least a car, no boost take off after waking from my small nap at the light and the SHO pulls on em hard with me letting off after a car length was gained(seeing coming light was red) and he sort of sails up next to us grinning to next light. Look over at the lovely lady and she's all smiles saying he got the jump on us. Quickly comforted her by saying that won't happen again as the light turned green and rpm's were at 2100, screamed away from line on boost taking at least 4-5 car advantage as we chirp em hard into second. I instantly let off and slow down as moron flies bye weaving through traffic. This pic is at next light where guy in truck next to him was about to scuffle with him.

On my way home from working night shift(in Mexico) this AM. Half asleep blaring some tunes, same ol routine drive. Notice a little movement through the traffic up ahead. Its a little mazda. I get a chance to catch up and turns out its a newer MS3. I get next to him in line at a light we give each other a thumbs up for the nice rides, I could tell he wanted to run as much as I did but the roads were just to congested. A couple miles go by and I swing around an 18 wheeler and the car infront of me clears the lane. Lo and Behold in the middle of Monday morning madness there is at least a 3/4th mile gap in both lanes between traffic. I knew then it was destined, the whole world slowed down and made room for these two modern day chariots to face off in an epic battle. I slid over a lane and he instantly accelerated up alongside and matched pace. 1,2,3.... And off we went!(from roughly a 60 roll) It was dead heat for the first 10-15mph or so... Then he slowly started fading back. By the time we had run out of real estate. I was a good couple car lengths up on him. We both slowed up and I gave him the thumbs up for the good run, he returned the same followed by an "Im not worthy" bow. Definitely made my morning though :smile:

No clue what or if he had done anything to that MS3, but those little things are pretty quick! He definitely held his own!

Little update, the kid found me on facebook at 1am this morning. Not sure whats done to his still, but he seems like a nice guy. Said it was recently dyno tuned and did 310whp and 360wtq, and when I told him my mods, he basically said "no way that's it, how come I cant keep up with you?" Even though he even pointed out, "those huge cars are only 365 crank stock, WTH??"

Im not sure what a stock STi dynoes, but ill look more into it later.

I found a thread where a guy has been doing step by step dyno results for his 2012 Sti, so the kid I raced must have more done than this guy if hes really 320hp/360tq

Transmission: 6spd stock
Peak HP at RPM: 301
Peak Torque at RPM: 339
Baseline hp/tq for a stock on same dyno: 263 WTQ, 256 WHP, 2.5L STi
Target Boost: 18
Target AFR:
Fuel: 92 octane
Engine/Power Modifications: COBB CF Air Box, COBB DP
Driveline Modifications:Stock
Suspension Modifications: Stock

Stage 2 numbers
339 WTQ
301 WHP

Stage 1 numbers
319 WTQ
283 WHP

Very true statement.  I always am going well above the speed limit due to the fact of this car being so smooth, and quiet even at 90-95mph.  Hence the reason I purchased the Valentine One Radar unit.  Worth every penny.  Saved me 4 tickets this month.

Everybody seems shocked when I say I driver the SHO a lot faster than my corvette. The corvette feels a lot faster so I end up only cruising at 65 or so, where with the SHO im typically 75.

I decided to see if he would make the first move so when the light turned green, I just took off gently and we stayed side by side accelerating slowing until about 25 MPH. At that point, I saw his front end rise out of the corner of my eye and the CTS began to accelerate.  When my foot went to the floor, my car downshifted to 1st gear giving me a very rewarding tire squeal. (Very cool!)  By the time my car shifted to 2nd and I got another nice tire chirp, I was about 2 lengths ahead.   I slowed down to let him pass so I could see his car better and it had the "3.6" emblem on the back.  He never made eye contact with me.

First kill I have had since I owned the car.

Last night on my way home from doing some vacation shopping, I was sitting at a red light, happened to be the first car there. I see in my side mirror a car pull out of line from a few cars back, as it is pulling next to me I see it is an Infiniti G37S...Not to shabby....The street I was on, goes from a two lane to one lane. So the light turns green and I rolled into it, nothing out of the norm. When the guy realized I wasn't budging, he got into it, well so did I, foot to the floor, the SHO ate him up! The rest of the wat done the street he was on my A**.....Got to anoter red light and I could see him behind me trying to figure out what it was that just eat him up and spit him out! I think his pride was hurt that a Ford just whooped his Infiniti.

I felt good about my first kill so far....

Stiffer suspension, less sound deadening is why it feels so fast. You are used to our quiet comfortable SHO cocoon.

Hate to beat a dead horse, but have to agree with the rest of you on this. It's so funny how true that is. I'll be cruising along, and I'll be dammed if I'm not rounding out 90 mph, and like, holy s***!
But the acceleration is still noticeably brutal. It's funny how relative speed is, based on factors like suspension, vehicle size, noise, and raucousness.

Totally agree...I lined up against what I believe was a LT1 Fbody-Trans Am (If it was a LS1 something was wrong with it) and it was actually a very nicely maintained car...had an awesome loud V8 sounding exhaust and a giant hood scoop and looked racy as hell.  I thought I was going to get killed but went for it anyway.  Had him by 2 or 3 car lengths when we shut down.  Car seat was still in the back.  Priceless look on dude's face...

Just raced a 2014 wrx sti. Roll and dig. Won by several car lengths both times. Especially on dig. Stopped at 90.

Second race for the night was a newly purchased 13 focus st. Destroyed him on both a roll and dig.

The sho is just racking up kills left and right in colo right now.

Had a newer GTI with a tune, intake and exhaust pull up next to me and blow off some boost. So I decided to play. We lined up on 3 stop lights. First 2 neither of us brake boosted and I beat him by 2 car lengths. 3rd one we both boosted and blew his doors off before he could get off the line. Got a thumbs up from him hah.

Love being in a city I can find people to race.

So, I had a really odd day yesterday.  I worked a long and hard day in the finance world, and was looking forward to just getting home.  I punch out and hop in the SHO and breathe a huge sigh, as I know I have a 2 hour drive home.  So I pull out of work and chirp 2nd... now I am already feeling better.  I get down the road and decide to stop in to get a K&N drop in filter for my factory intake.  The person behind the counter complimented me on my SHO, and said they have seen it before and they wish they could have it.  I then leave there because they don't have my filter.  I get down the road another 10 minutes, and there is a really clean Lexus SC400 with the 4.0 Liter V8.  Lowered, exhaust, intake.  I see him up ahead and decided to see if I could "get the fish on the hook".  So he is rolling all cool, and chill with his windows down and left hand up on the steering wheel like he is a true G Cat...... so I slowly roll by him, and then give it a little gas to make my obnoxiously loud, non muffler, bark out some noise.  I look in my mirror and sure enough, he cuts over into my lane, and gets behind me.... FISH ON...... I get in the left lane and let him creep up next to me.  He doesn't even look over, but gets right next to me and gives it a little gas to let me hear his sweet sounding V8... literally it sounded great... I then get behind him and he gives it all it's got.... I push the pedal just enough to keep pace.  I then pull up on his left and he says "that's all I got bro".  I said "hey man, it doesn't have to be fast as long as it sounds good right??" (hidden insult) The "fish" is now offended and says, "you wanna go?"  My "fish" had swollowed the bait whole.....  The road opened up into a glorious 4 lane, no traffic situation for over 1/2 a mile.  I gave him the nod that I was down for a little sprint down the road.  I give him the ole 1, 2, 3 honk, and we hammer down.  I hear his V8 roar to life with surprising torque at 35 mph.  He got me by a car length on the jump due to my lovely automatic transmission (Didn't want to bother with paddles).  I hear the SWISH of my turbos spooling up and my head slams into the headrest as it kicks down into 1st gear with a nice 4 tire chirp, I reel in my fish with utter ease and bark all 4 tires going to 2nd right at his window and then I passed him by like I was on a Sunday stroll... I let out at 100, as he comes up next to me and says "what the **** is that???" I then use my favorite line "It's just a Taurus"  and he said "BS" as he held his phone up, "I was googling what "SHO" was before we got to racing."  I then said "I guess you didn't get far into reading about it because you still raced me....." He laughed and we parted ways.  I was then at the interstate to take my route home.  As I get onto the interstate I was excited and quickly got up to "my speed limit" and set cruise control.  I see in my mirror about 10 minutes later a white BMW 528I, take two lanes over from the fast lane, and comes up the "slow" lane.  He stops about a car length behind me and 2 lanes over, and I look back and he is videoing the SHO.... lol I give it a good kick down, and do a lane shift, and take it up to 120 before backing it down.  He then pulls up next to me and tells me to roll down my window, "That is one bad Son of a Bitc*!!"  I said "thanks man" He then asks if he can get a closer video of me taking off..... keep in mind we are still doing 70 down the interstate while having a conversation..... So I say why not?  so I give him a 70-130 run as he was trying to keep up.... VERY unsucceful I might add.  He took pictures and video for the next 3-5 miles.  Kinda creepy.  But that was my eventful ride home after a TERRIBLE day in the office.  Always count on the SHO to bring a smile to my face, and a jaw dropping experience to all who watch it go! Hope you enjoyed the read.

Picking up my daughter the other night from work I had a young fellow pull up beside me in a very new Altima Coupe. Big system in this thing, buddy with his girlfriend in his car beside me and looks over and laughs. Hmmm really you are stupid. No brake boosting needed, completely destroyed him 2 cars pretty much just through the intersection. Funny at the next light his windows were up and I couldn't hear his stereo anymore.

^^ lol!
It must be the weather. I'm on my way home and on my bumper is a 300 (newest body style looked like an SRT from the front). So I think cool finally something more worthy. So for a little ways the road is only 2 lanes. This guy is right on my bumper, I can barely see his headlights. But the area we are driving through is residential. I won't budge, 5 over the speed limit is all I am willing.  The road opens up to 4 lanes and now in industrial and no traffic. 1st light after the split it's red. He pulls up beside me and it's not an SRT. Damn it! Is a 300S. Again buddy thinks he's all badass with his girlfriend in the car. He even throws it in neutral and revs the crap out if it. No traffic in sight. What a complete waste of time lol. I didn't need 3rd gear to embarrass him (badly). What are these people thinking??

Out on Woodward Saturday we were rolling next to. Last gen GTO with the 6.0L in it. My buddy was trying to bait him in but he just laughed us off. I dropped back a bit and then ran up along side him, letting off with my hood right by his open window. Once he heard the blow off he smiles and said "you have boost" and now he wanted to play. We went from a roll at about 30 and he looked worried that I was pulling on him. Being that there were so many cops I let off at 60. He kept in it for a few seconds then slowed back down to talk. He asked if I was afraid. We said let's find a light and run from a stop, he wanted to me run it out with him saying he had hit 105 earlier. No way was I doing that. Driving like that in a 50mph zone during the cruise is just asking to get arrested. It's guys like him that give the event a bad name. Cops are pretty good with stop light races if you let off around the speed limit and don't light up the tires or get sideways. I let him take off and looked for my next victim. I also got a charger R/T (easy stuff), challenger SRT, an Infinit M37x and a few 4.6 Mustangs. It was a good time for sure.

Yup, people can be stupid about it. There was another bad accident over the weekend here. Kid died running his Honda into a pole racing another kid in a Honda down a busy street. There is a time and place, it's one of the reasons I like to go to the track often. No cops and no excuses! But accelerating to the speed limit quickly never gets old in the SHO, that's where it really shines.

Its the only time they can feel fast passing all those parked cars


I had a good one about 2 weeks ago , I was coming home from a a great camping trip and I was towing my SO's pop up trailer. I know! if wanted to tow I should have gotten a truck, anyway I was driving doing about 75-80 (kph) just cruising and I hear a loud exhaust coming from the right side (on ramp) and I see this blacked out Merc it was a V8 just by the sound he had but I couldn't tell what it was debadged it but I would say  2002-03 c class. he pulls up beside me windows down with his SO looks over at me and just floors it!, I guess he wanted me to hear his sweet sounding exhaust  :dunno:. so against my better judgement I give it, both of us going full throttle and trailer in tow ! I start to creep up on him to the point of passing him and I look over and see his GF laughing and pointing at the trailer. This guy must have been so embarrassed apparently his GF gave my GF thumbs up. I would have loved to dust him with no trailer and tune but it was fun completely embarrassing him.

So I think I got my favorite kill yesterday!  I was traveling home after another long day in the finance world, with one goal in mind..... GET HOME!!  I was traveling down the interstate with the windows down, sunroof open, and radio blasting all my trouble away.  As I am traveling in the fast lane, I look over and see a BEAUTIFUL Black 2012 BMW M3 Sedan (4.0L V8 with 414hp, and 298ft lb of torque) come flying up the on ramp and take 3 lanes over to the fast lane and squeezes between a 18 wheeler, and another car to get in "front" of the line of cars.... So I said to my self, "Self, now there if a good opponent"  So I kicked it down and passed 3 cars, and squeezed through that same gap (now much smaller) and I get right behind him.  He looks in his mirrors and makes sure I am not the fuzz.... he finds out that I am not, and he starts blipping his throttle and lunging his car forward.... I follow suit, and toss it down into paddle shift mode and give it a couple blips to let him know I am game.  The car in front of him will not get out of the fast lane, so as soon as the next lane over is clear he kicks it down and cuts into the next lane over and I follow suit.  We are now doing an easy 90mph.  He then gets behind another slow mini van and gets probably about 6-8 inches from their bumper and starts blipping his throttle and lunging toward their bumper... (douche bag move)  the van moves over and he kicks it down and passes the van under full throttle from a 70mph roll, as I am still in paddle shift mode and have kept pace the whole time..... he then keeps in the throttle and moves over to give us a side by side fun time.... he never let out of the throttle as I saw that lovely black cloud coming out of his exhaust letting me know that he is all in..... I was in 3rd gear and was pushing the throttle through the floor board.  Windows still down, wind screaming through the car as we passed 100mph.... I look down and see RPMs up to 6500.... with a flip of the paddle, I kick it into 4th gear and start reeling him in... quickly.... as I pass the 130 mph mark I look over at him and give him a big grin, as he literally has his mouth wide open in disbelief.... I was around him at 140mph, and walking away very quickly at this point.  He never did try and get up next to me, even though I had taken it down to 60mph... he stayed back in traffic so he didn't have to face me.... made my week.... HECK! That made my month! :-)

Late 90s M3 with a total college BRO driving. I pulled up next to him around 35mph, kept bumpers in line and just kept pace. I heard him drop a gear, so i just floored it.... needless to say he looked over at me at the red light as I just had a big ole grin.

Its not a SHO but no one ever expects my sport to destroy them, that is until they do indeed get killed. Just obliterated this dodge dart with some fart can and body mods on it while he had his gf riding shotgun. he pulled up to me at the red light on the road to my house that is 50, he starts gassing it, light turns green and I punch it, by the time I hit 50 im 1 1/2 car lengths in front of him, but the clown continues to floor it till hes going at least 60 just to pass me. I think he actually believes that since he finally passed me as I stopped gassing it at the speed limit he blew my doors off.
That's not as bad as when I let my wife drive it on the strip downtown the other weekend and she smoked 2 crotch rockets a Transam and a stage 2 sti, these kids standing on the corner were saying they were gonna post the vid on youtube, although I have not been able to find it

So far:
Coworker with a 02 wrx with a STI motor swap
Coworker with a 3valve mustang gt (07 I believe?)
Multiple 5.7 Hemi powered vehicles from a dig
Last and my favorite was my dad's Mercedes e500, he looked heart broken, lol.

What could this be I thought as I glance over in excitement, and it's a little itty bitty, teenie weenie, srt4 neon riding out the last bit of whatever gear he was trying to kill. It's dropped with blacked out windows, rims, exaust and all kinds of little vendor stickers. So I kick her down into manual mode and find 2nd gear real quick as we were at about a 35 roll, and give it a little jump. He follows suit and we find ourselves next to each other with the let's do this look coming from both cars. We slow to about 30 to let some traffic pull away and he jumps on it first with me to quickly follow as I could here it coming. Even with the couple tenths jump I immediately jump out hard and pull a couple cars before catching traffic (only up to 70). As the perma-grin on my face reached out to the ears I surely thought he wouldn't want more. To my surprise he comes pulling up motioning he wanted another chance. This time we go from 40 (as he was controlling this) and I leave with him this time at a higher rpm in 2nd still and get about the same result. Probably mid 20 ' s kid pulls up and gives me a thumbs up and a nod and pulls off. Not much of a kill but she was hungry,  lol.

Nice kill! There was a neon at the track that ran a 12.9 a few weeks back. But that was with a perfect launch...most of the time was mid 13s.

Couple weeks ago, driving I-5 somewhere near Los Banos a Mustang runs up behind me. Couldnt tell if GT or not. We already pushing 80-90 mph as its open highway in middle of night. He goes around me and I let him go. Then I got the bug. Charged him and it was on. I caught him around 110 mph as we maneuver traffic. Another opening. Again I let him take lead. I spot CHP better that way. But we in and out around 120 or so. Then flat land again. This time I mash out. Side by side I walk him. When I looked I was at 140 mph when I back her down. We played a little more for about 20 miles. I needed gas and a watering hole.

Ran a mercedes coupe of some sort last night on eway. Reeled him in after he tried to do a fly by. My buddy said it was a 6 series, gonna have to look into it because  I don't think the SHO should reel him in at a 140.

Then destroyed a last gen cobra shortly after. Stories to come after another long day ahead at the church and another funeral. Rough week that the forces to be let me blow off some steam last night.

Coming home on a late night on the highway I notice a car coming up on me very fast so I pull to the side to let him by and it's a newer grand sport corvette and he wants to play and the highway is wide open so we are going about 65 mph and we both hit it and we where neck and neck till about 110 and I pulled him by about a car length and I had it buried at 140 for about 5 seconds and then I left out of it! I was very suprised that I got him on a roll like that but I know his feelings had to be hurt! I have a 2014 sho with livernois tune downpipe and exhaust

A C6 defeat from a roll would indeed be quite a feat. He weighs a thousand pounds less than you, likely peaks with more power, and more toward the top of his powerband...
If you got the drop on him, he'd have eventually caught you. I'm pretty sure the C6 tops out damn near 200 mph.

Not even worth the bandwidth to post this, but it was funny.  My boss has a 2010 GMC 2500 6.0L (gas) quad cab 4x4 truck.  All stock.  Always talk crap about my Ford.  I raced him from a dig on the way to work the other day and had a bus length on him by 60mph.  Did a race from 50mph and had several busses when I left off at 100mph. 

He also has a 2007 C6 A6 (just a Corsa CB) that he drives six times a year.  Wants to race me in that.  I told him once I get a tune, no problem.   With the HP hit he'll take at our altitude (8,500'+), I think the SHO will have the edge once tuned.  Might try to race him stock just for comparison sake, but he never drives the damn thing!  He says he is getting a C7 Z06 after it's been in production for over a year to work out the bugs.  Can't wait to drive that thing!  His C6 is a blast around the mountain roads, can't imagine having another 130HP in a better handling car!

Good find, curry!  For all practical purposes, the SHO wins hands-down.  Even with a 250+ lb handicap :)  If they find a cure for the acceleration curve after the 60-70 mp range for the SHO, it might be a top-end contender too!

Agreed, couldnt have said it better myself. It may seem like he gets over taken but they are clearly going damn near 100 and there is businesses on that street so to me it looks like the only reason is because the SHO lays off it

Also have you guys seen the talk going around? New GT most certainly in the pipeline and based off ecoboost :D

For those inetrested, heres a quote from one of the articles
"years ago at the launch of the Taurus SHO -- one of the first vehicles to receive the 3.5-liter EcoBoost mill -- an engineer explained that while the SHO only makes 365 hp, the engine can easily produce 600 hp and still be reliable"

Post by: MDesign Performance on October 04, 2014, 08:34:06 AM
I believe high 400, low 500 hp/tq would be the perfect ballpark for a reliable daily driver. With a tune, 3 Bar, plugs, downpipes, functional intake, and methanol I believe it shouldn't be too hard depending on how aggressive you tune. The methanol would help greatly in keeping the internals of the engine clean and preventing any carbon buildup all the while creating more power :D

I got introduced to fast cars when my dad bought his M6 and when I bought the SHO I thought that it wasn't going to be fast enough but it was the best I could afford and I liked the car. Once I found out about LMS and got my tune I realized that at the low end it could compete. The other day my mom let my brother drive the M6 for the "first time" when he was going to homecoming. I ended up next to him at a light and destroyed him. Not sure if it is because he has no idea what he is doing in that car or that mine is that much faster off the line but the SHO definitely has potential. Running at speed the M6 just walks away from the SHO still.

It's a 2008 M6 which has an SMG (single clutch) they didn't do a dct with the v10. Really you can set it so that you just push a button on the steering wheel and it automatically loads all sport settings (500hp sport, stiffened suspension, fastest shifting, and traction control off is how I like mine).

what the challenger guys fail to realize is that the eco guys who want to line up with them have gained far more from playing with the 3.5 than they gained playing with their hemi in most cases.
the upside to the challenger is an almost unlimited aftermarket, truly amazing & of course the 2dr look.

For sure. Livernois CAD I ran a challenger srt8 twice. First run was my first time ever lining up at the tree and had a horrible r/t  (.5 behind him) and beat him by 2 or 3 cars. He pulled up at the time slip booth and said if he had my lane he thinks he could get me. I say ok, and we switch lanes. This time we leave at the same time and I left out on him so bad I think he just lifted at the end as I was like 6 cars out at the 1/8th mile. He drove right out of the place and left.

I have video but it's bad quality.

My sincere hope is that many of you are embellishing your exploits. The consequences for this kind of driving on public roads are severe from best to worst case.

Jail

Losing everything you've worked to attain in life because you maim or kill someone.

Death-that's the easy part, destroying the lives of everyone who loves you, orphaning your kids, widowing your wives.....how many of you think your families would find this juvenile behavior worth losing you over?

I don't give a s*** how good of a driver you are, at those speeds everything is deadly....from Bambi crossing the road , to mechanical failure,to a patch of gravel in he wrong place.... it will be over before the words holy s*** exit your mouth. The car will not protect you at those speeds, why do you think NHRA mandates a rollbar for 11's?

Not to mention looking at our demographics, most of us aren't spring chickens anymore and our reflexes aren't what they used to be.

If you guys feel the need to drive that fast, pony up the cash and go to a sanctioned event that will let you get it out of your system in a controlled environment.

Googled the words provided. After 2 pages of scrolling over the same story posted the entire time. Kid in Canada "claimed" he was going so fast and an anonymous tip went to police that got him in trouble. Thankfully mexico is cool with excessive speeds.

Manu.......

I enjoyed your quote as follows:

"I'm sure all you'd need is bpd's chin & roof spoilers + the hood pins and tires."

All accurate info & I found each of those items are all definitely necessary.

The newly built motor helps things along as well.

For some (if not most) drugs are not an option. But speed, and an occasional lining up with a competitor piloting an alternate brand/power plant is equally as exhilarating.

Thus this thread.

Stay safe everyone, and have a little fun while doing so.

The intended point is  SPEED kills and we all know this and  exploring the limits is the nature of beast for Motoring Enthusiast .

Most of the members ( to include myself ) if not all , are SPEED FREEKS and enjoy the adrenaline rush weather it be competing against owners of other vehicles or exploring TOP Speed of our rides  there is ALWAYS a risk of death or injury to ones self or others .

To arbitrarily decided one is more dangerous than the other and then thread locking is doing a disservice to the members here and to promote one as being acceptable and the other as being  "  unsafe " is implying that we members are irresponsible and is disingenuous at best .......

Feel free to explore away, at your own risk.  Competition is going to happen, but do you hold yourself responsible for the actions of the other driver involved, or do you walk away?  In the heat of the moment, anything goes.  Just think twice about what you put down in a post in an open forum.  Not trying to be an enthusiasm-buster.

I simply wanted to be that unwanted nagging voice in the back of the head that makes sure you do things, within limits.  My motivation is simple:  to keep you guys living and loving life LONGER, because you all are family to me.  You can come down on me all you want for speaking up, that is certainly your right.  Won't change the reality of what I said.

I understand voicing your opinion on how unsafe it is, but locking a thread isn't necessary. Everyone here is responsible enough to own a 30,0000 dollar car, so I am sure everyone has there risk to reward established enough to know what they are posting and what can come from it.

True  , but there are LOTS of other posts in this area that are saying 100 120ish and at those speeds there is little difference if the SH** hits the fan ....
And the probability of " rubbin " is much higher than single vehicle runs ....

Bottom line here is the thread got locked by the forum. For whatever reason they state we should back this decision and enjoy the rest of the forum. This is not a big deal. Love what you have and don't fret about what you dont. May be hard to swallow as "alpha males" that this is for our own good. I fully back the decision and think we need to not question the administration's decision on this matter.

On a positive note, I was heading to work today and sitting a light waiting to turn right I had an STS V in front of me. He turned so I followed. I was about 3 cars lengths behind and hammered it. He took the right lane and me the left. He wanted my lane and tried but I was already on it and despite his attempt he ended up having to brake as he approached traffic and take up place behind me. It took a while but he finally got along side me and had a very surprised look on his face that his supercharged north star just got spanked.

Best Feeling EVER!!!! A guy i work with has a STS V, I know he has some sort of exhaust on it and i'm pretty sure a tune... Haven't talked to him about it yet, I'd rather just see him on the road once, show him up a bit, then start conversation. HAHAHA!

Thx for the condolences fellas.

I was riding bumper to bumper with a Z28 sort of seeing if he'd play around and as I was giving up on it, this Mustang comes up to mess with me.

Man it sounded really solid, not just loud, but solid crisp power. The way a Mustang should sound. Sort of had the feeling it wasn't gonna be a win as he shook the SHO with a display of the pipes. But I wasn't gonna turn down the offer to compare Ford powerplants.

So we (he) slowed it down to about 25 from the 50 we were cruising. I went to manual mode to try and fight the little turbo lag still there without the dpipes. Had it in 3rd at first but as we slowed quickly the rpm's dropped and I heard him finally start to power up and didn't get a chance to drop to 2nd before he lurched out. This put me a car back quick and with his seemingly cautious shift into next gear I pulled up on him some and then as I shifted a bit early he pulls again and we were off the pedals both ways.

Being a Mustang fan forever it was nice to see a quality one in action. It was grey and blacked out too. So didn't take it that bad, but did have thoughts on what mods are next instantly pop into my head.

Would've been cool to try it from a stop, where we make up the power differences.

Post by: FoMoCoSHO on October 27, 2014, 07:46:07 PM
Rich, I'm betting money the only reason you lost is because you were 2 gears high.

At 25 the ecm will give you 1st gear in D,M, or S with a 2013. There's really no better sweet spot as you are downshifting right in to 400+ lb/ft of torque. Make sure your TC is off or it might dampen the fun.

When I give rides I always show off the 25 2-1 downshift and that is the one that make jaws hit the weather techs. It is brutal and neck snapping.

I don't know about LMS but I know there's no way in hell I'm going to outsmart or shift quicker than my Torrie enhanced shifting. All I do is pull it into Sport and stand on it. I only use paddles if I want to hold a gear on a windy road.

From what I've read about LMS tunes I'm guessing the tranny performs equally as well.

Post by: SHOnUup on October 27, 2014, 07:58:09 PM
You know I keep going over this in my head. At the 50 mph where we knew it was gonna go down 3rd felt ok, not prime. At times around that speed I get sloppy takeoff if I don't do a slight Rev to get it to drop enough gears and didn't want to risk it. He started downshifting and I was just late. If I'd of known we were gonna slow down to the 25 mph area, auto all day....that jump is phenomenal and is where I pull my best #'s on torque ....

I really think that Cobra had a bunch more though, I could be wrong...wish I would've had a better hit though...maybe we meet again

You guys have really touched on important stuff when it comes to going at it on a roll.  For me 20 to 25 is just insane!  Then if going around 50 like mentioned, its like I have half the power, which could equal devastating results with your otherwise fast car.  I honestly think the fairest race is from a dig.  If you are too afraid to line up with my grocery getter from a stand still, we are gonna have issues lol.

^^ This is the exact mentality of the whole "car scene" around here. None of them actually have any knowledge other than the car looks fast or they saw some ridiculously suped up version of said vehicle on YouTube so they believe all of them are like that from the factory. I live in a pretty small city so unfortunately there is hardly anyone my age that is in to cars like me that actually had to work for it and didn't receive it as a gift from their parents. I've explained on more than one occasion that yes my stickers that say twin turbo is because my suv is twin turbo and that I am faster than their car and their buddies car and I've got the time slips to prove it. All the guys do around here is talk talk talk but never put their money where their mouth is. I've jumped in on a few conversations of guys swinging cocks saying I would race and then suddenly no one wants to actually race. If you're not driving a sti, a st, or a evo or your ride doesn't have extreme body damage or more primer than paint around here, they automatically assume you're slow and discredit you. After the last car meet I've stopped going because it agitates me to see guys talking up their future plans to their rides to break out of the 14s meanwhile no one asks about the full size 7 seater suv that weighs 5k, tows an additional 5k, has 4wheel drive but runs 13.5 in my second attempt ever. My wife gets a kick out of it always getting me in trouble telling guys their vehicles combined wouldn't be worth the price of the wheels on our sport so we're not racing for pink slips but they are too broke to race for cash so they need to just shut up. I'm always like ok nice to meet you guys we'll be going now.

Last time I went out there was a guy with a wrx talking and he would not run me, had me run his buddy with an accord v6 and i informed him it was going to bad and he did not believe me. After that neither would run me.

Ran into a Charger today coming home from work. I hate those Mopar's, they always think they are the baddest thing on the road. It was just an R/T so I figure a 5.7 Hemi. He was zipping in and out of traffic so he started bothering me lol....I managed to get behind him but couldn't really get around him, we were going through a construction zone so I got fed up and whipped it into the other lane that was blocked off by barrels. He saw me head over so he nailed it. I guess it wasn't really fair since I'm tuned. But the roads were wet and maybe a little slushy from the flurries we were getting. He must've hydro planed or something because he actually grazed one of the orange barrels and shot the barrel into the median lol....I wasn't going to let out, I hate those stupid Mopar's...I think he was afraid to go much over 120mph because of the weather and construction so I held to about 130mph and I knew he got the point...The awd is really sweet in these cars. He left his high beams on after I moved back in front of him. I don't know why people do that. When I get beat on the street I usually give a thumbs up..It's all in good fun for me..You win some you lose some I say.

Pulling out of a large mall onto a 4 lane road I found myself next to a porshe panamera turbo. Road was wide open (lights worked in our favor) and as soon as we straightened em out I could see him looking over and we both hammered down at the same time. Dead even until what I think was a bad shift when I pulled hard. Instantly let off (only up to 65) and slow to 35 mph to play around a bit and he gets over behind me and does a Michigan turn around at last second losing me. So I hit next turn around (the way I needed to go but was willing to make detour to play) and catch up easy do to the light setup and pull up next to him on the right. He then escapes via another last second turnaround. Pssst, he's suppose to be faster...i don't get it.

That's the first panamera I've seen on the roads here. To my surprise I end up behind another one ((but gtp)I think) on the way home. Weird

I have video of my son destroying an obviously stock one at the track.  I'm not sure what they run tuned?

Me neither on the tuned aspect. This guy was special though. Definitely had some sort of awful sounding exaust and tinted windows. Came up next to me and started pacing me with little jumps to boot. So I lurched out on it once and he then flew by in heavy holiday traffic weaving off into the distance. I make a lane change before red light and find myself cruising by 3 lanes wide of 20 people deep to be in the pole position...lol...looky there, BMW lined up right next to me. Non boosted launch (to cold with full psi in tires for anymore) and I'm out 2 cars on him real fast. I let off and he proceeds to be an idiot and fly through traffic.

Should've just braked hard, popped open the trunk and let him stow his ride in there as he came to a stop!

Well... I had some Ford on Ford crime.... an SVT lightening felt the wrath of the soccer van. It was bad; We did a 20 roll with him in his first gear. I have a video but it is not good at all.

Found a WRX looking like a STI tuned by a local major performance shop (English Racing) he said 300hp maybe 310? We ran from a 20 roll, he fell back a car after 2nd s*** he gained to my rear tire and held there.

Ran into a Charger today coming home from work. I hate those Mopar's, they always think they are the baddest thing on the road. It was just an R/T so I figure a 5.7 Hemi. He was zipping in and out of traffic so he started bothering me lol....I managed to get behind him but couldn't really get around him, we were going through a construction zone so I got fed up and whipped it into the other lane that was blocked off by barrels. He saw me head over so he nailed it. I guess it wasn't really fair since I'm tuned. But the roads were wet and maybe a little slushy from the flurries we were getting. He must've hydro planed or something because he actually grazed one of the orange barrels and shot the barrel into the median lol....I wasn't going to let out, I hate those stupid Mopar's...I think he was afraid to go much over 120mph because of the weather and construction so I held to about 130mph and I knew he got the point...The awd is really sweet in these cars. He left his high beams on after I moved back in front of him. I don't know why people do that. When I get beat on the street I usually give a thumbs up..It's all in good fun for me..You win some you lose some I say

smart idea racing in that weather... going 130mph?? damn man. I hope you don't kill yourself or someone else.

Thanks, DAD.

My brother bought a new 15 Eco mustang in January, I bought my sho in February. Both were stock at this point. We went to a local shop to get our windows tinted, as we were bullshitting with the guy doing the tint. He asked which one was faster? I said we are gonna find out on the way home. We got out on the highway and waited for no traffic. Slowed to about 15-20mph, right off the bat I was 1 car ahead. Went to about 120 and he was 2 cars back. Now we are both tuned, going to the track next Friday. We will see.

In Chicago, heading to a car wash the night before the car show we come up to a light with an old notch back Mustang...real clean with custom chrome pipes. He rips away spinning the tires and catching 2nd gear pretty good. I make an aggressive move to get up next to him...thankfully the lights in Chicago are horribly timed and we get to the next light lined up...I bump up a bit to get his attention, he looks over and smiles, then directs his attention to the tree (light)...lol

Green light chimes in and we checked out...bus lengths on em

I basically stop 10 cars back at next light to give him a thumbs up on giving it a go...he coasted by not even glancing over...lol

We then get a kid hanging out of his SUV drive up to us and scream with thumbs up...loved it

Lined up at a red light next to a 2002 BMW Z3 M roadster. After the light, the road goes from 2 lanes down to 1. I wasn't even planning on running at all, but when the light goes green, I hear the BMW driver hit the gas, so, I instinctively smash it. The old SHO did not disappoint! I pulled away from him by about 2 car lengths by the time we got up to warp speed. I saw him merge in behind me with an angry scowl and in an almost "ricer" move, rode my bumper until he turned off. I wasn't too impressed until I read up on the specs on the M roadster. (320hp, 258 ft lbs, total weight 3031 lbs).

This kill was Im sure because the driver must not know how to drive but last Friday night I took the flex to the strip for the first time.  Got lined up against a new blk ZL1 Camaro.  I wasn't super happy with my time but I can only imagine how he felt.  Anyways, I ran a 13.2 and he turned a 13.5.  felt bad for the guy.  Then I remembered he was in a chevy, poor mans wife probably left him after watching the manivan take the win light.  HAHAHA

Traction is a b*tch...I watched two guys in new Hellcats run mid 13s at the track too. My SS capable of of 12.8s out of the box, buuuut actually driving it well enough at the track to accomplish that number is another thing entirely.

Well after 8 months of ownership, finally got a go against someone (while on a very long trip south of the border...and then south of that border...lol). On my way home when 2 punks in a clapped out SRT-4 line up against me and start revving at the red light.  Never noticed in my post-work daze but then looked over and literally laughed out loud.  Light goes green, I let them go then STOMP on it for an easy kill.  Forget about it all, then who comes screaming in at the next light?  My old friends now scowling at me...too good.  So now we are revving at the light, ready for a serious go.  Let go a couple of BOV farts while we're at it and the scowl turns into disbelief.  Light goes green and, well, I plain felt bad for them, 3 car lengths behind at the 200ft mark.  He either gave up very early or his car was a seriously hurting unit.  Either way, a kill is a kill...Lincoln style LOL!!!  American-style rice anyone?

I was behind a guy in a 67 Stang with a plate that read 67stang. He was driving like a d bag so I figured why not. No idea what was done to it but the exhaust was cut off under the pass cabin and it did sound nice. Needless to say him and his 2 buddies couldn't figure out what happened when I went from the car behind him around the left and 3 car lengths in front. Once I was stopped to turn left they rolled by all staring trying to figure out what happened.

So i was sitting in line at the light about to get on the tollway, light turns green we all roll onto the tollway apparently too slow for the d bag in the new Porsche carrera S with paper plates who proceeds to pass us all on the shoulder about 200ft before it opens to 2 lanes. Well I dont know what came over me because generally i try not to do stupid things. But I shot out into that open second lane and ran the d bag down, as i came along side him he punched it, I punched it. When I shut down somewhere around 145 (because the weatherstripping above the driver side window was screaming. I was still a good 5 lengths on him and gaining ground still. The look on his face when he got back beside me was priceless... Ill remember it forever.

I ended up next to a new Camaro SS with an exhaust at a red light.  He had been driving aggressively early so I knew he'd go when the light turned green.  So it did...then I remembered I was driving my wife's 2010 GMC Acadia.  :(  Seriously! Why can't I ever line up next to one when I'm in my Taurus.  I wanted to give him a little AWD action to 80 or so...(I know he'd walk me higher than that.)

I had a kid driving daddy's 45th anni Camaro SS w/ his gf riding with him.  It had at least an exhaust on it because when he and I turned together making a right off the highway he juiced it and I stayed right next to him.  I think what set him off was when I gave him an ear full of the ol' gals excess boot she built up.  Then he was wanting to do some playing.

But alas...it always seems to happen when I have the wife with me and I couldn't show that little punk what the back of the SHO looks like from a dig.  He wound up turning a couple lights later revving the s*** out of his dad's car.  I just gave his gf a wink as she was eyeballin' me when he made his turn.  LOL!

Yesterday morning I was just cruising along and a newer Infinity G35Sx goes by. He was doing about 55 in a 35, I wanted to go after him but we were about to crest a hill that 5-0 watches a lot. We got past the 5-0 area and both turned right. He took left lane I took right, he quickly hit it to get ahead of me and clear traffic. Once he did that I jumped on his bumper until he moved back to the left lane. I pulled a car length ahead as we approached a red light. He wanted to not lose to my that he didn't get stopped until half way into the intersection for the red light. When it went green I smoked him and pulled 3 cars then let off. He wouldn't even look at me as he passed even though I was giving him a thumbs up. I should have rolled the back window down and let my 2.5 yr old give him the thumbs up. My son was of course yelling go the whole time. Lol

Tuesday I was on the highway, of course in Mexico, and rolled up on a 1st gen Jeep SRT8. Once I caught up along side of him I jumped on it and let off to see if he'd bite. He did and we pulled to 120. I pulled and early car length on him and held it until we got out of it. He was grinning and gave me the thumbs up.

A week ago, on my way home from work in my Explorer, I was in the left lane when a black SUV in the right lane, which I had seen earlier in my rearview, guns it and starts pulling ahead of me by a fender.  Didn't know what it was at the time, but not one to be overtaken like that, I lay into it with my right foot.  We stayed pretty much even, me behind by a foot, until I back off at 80 (in a 45 mph zone).  He backs off right after, rolls his window down, and makes a "close" indication with his hand.  It wasn't until we both turned when I could see what he was driving, a Chevy Tailblazer SS (395 hp V8).  If I had known we were going to race at the beginning, I think I would've had him.

I had a '06 TBSS RWD, it was a blast to drive.  With a tune, it ran 14.2 at Las Vegas with high DAs.  The interior was awesome back in the day.  Only other SUV comparable was the Jeep SRT8.  Ford had no fast SUVs.  TBSS had a weak drivetrain when you started adding power. 

A tuned XSport would have no issues with a tuned only TBSS, should be a few lengths.

A couple weekends ago a young guy pulled up next to me in a 2015 Suburu WRX at a stop light.  He left the light hard so I decided to get into it as well and proceeded to put two cars on him up to 50MPH.  We stopped at the next light and I rolled down my window, he was shaking his head as he said " I was not expecting that at all, is that a Ford"?  I said " Yes, it's a Taurus SHO, AWD and twin turbo from the factory".  He gave it go again when the light turned green and I proceeded to walk away from him again chirping the tires into second as I passed him.  We exchanged thumbs up and proceeded on our ways.   It was pretty satisfying since I used to own a 2011 WRX.

took out a 70's Camaro on the highway. He saw me coming and got the jump from about 70 and I reeled him in a slowly went on past. It was a nice Camaro (for a Chevy). There was a car show in the area that day. It ran good but he was surprised it was a Taurus passing him up lol

Out for a quiet Sunday drive after coming home from the parent's house, the wife and I found ourselves south of the border.  I notice a red G8 GT in front of me about 100 yards. Rolling down the highway at 60, making a couple moves to put us side by side, I noticed a couple cars approaching the intersection from the cross road. So I slowed down attempting to catch the light with the G8. Bright red, lowered, wheels, exhaust and an SCT badge on the trunk.  I brake boosted to let the BOV vent at the light to get his attention, he and his passenger look over and I hear him rev the motor to launch. I do the same.....

Light turned green and I jumped out about 4 car lengths, shut it down around 75 and only had about 3 cars on him by then. I gave him the thumbs up but apparently he didn't want to return the favor.  He stayed back the rest of the time until getting off the highway. The wife said all the money I'm spending on the car is worth it after that.

It's so fun when you know you got under their skin and hurt their pride. I always give a thumbs up even if I loose. It's about the fun and no matter what you drive, sooner or later you'll be up against something faster.

I put the hurt on a G8 GXP several months ago. He was none to happy and did a u turn so as not to have to meet me at the next light. (On Rt.50 here in Northern Va)

Anyone else find it difficult to get people to bite against the SHO? Especially in the evenings when its getting dark i assume they see a dark colored taurus and figured its a cop. And no real way to get their attention with revving. I have had a few people at the track mentioned they seen me on the toll road on the way to the track and thought i was a cop. Must be why everyone goes 5 under the speed limit when im behind them.

Kyle I have the same problem.

I've also noticed douchebags in mustangs knock off their shenanigans once the SHO makes its presence known. One off the line demonstration seems to cause them to fall back and behave. Especially if they have their women with them.

I always got people wanting to play right in front of the cop shop.  Doesn't matter what I was in.  Since I got the SHO, I only messed with one person, younger guy in a TSX-S that goes racing all through town, weaving in and out of traffic.  It was definitely a waste of fuel, but I still giggled like a little girl.

At least the Taurus is quiet.  The '12 GT was obnoxious at WOT.

A week ago, on my way home from work in my Explorer, I was in the left lane when a black SUV in the right lane, which I had seen earlier in my rearview, guns it and starts pulling ahead of me by a fender.  Didn't know what it was at the time, but not one to be overtaken like that, I lay into it with my right foot.  We stayed pretty much even, me behind by a foot, until I back off at 80 (in a 45 mph zone).  He backs off right after, rolls his window down, and makes a "close" indication with his hand.  It wasn't until we both turned when I could see what he was driving, a Chevy Tailblazer SS (395 hp V8).  If I had known we were going to race at the beginning, I think I would've had him.
Must have been modified... I just toasted one of those at the track he ran a 14.1.. I even had a crappy start. Car fell on its face

Might have been modded, I don't know.  I've never seen the guy since.  To be fair, I didn't realize we were going to be racing, until he pulled ahead and hammered the gas.  Until that point, it was just a black SUV like any other.  Had we both started with the intent of competing, I'm pretty confident in my ExSport (with a few mods & tune).  I still don't like the idea of racing on a residential street, though.

I finally have a good one. Keep in mind, my car is badged with only a Taurus emblem on the rear with all sho/ecoboost removed.

Last Friday in the dark around 8 pm a C6Z, bright yellow, lowered, looking very mean zigging in n out of traffic. He cut me off to be first at the light so he can show his buddy how fast this thing is and I was thinking, this is finally my chance to see how far the vette will pull away from me.

Light turns green, he hammers it then me too....it's on.... I'm on his bumper till he lets off to about 75 ish. I start to fall behind because he has no idea what just happened or whats behind him but blinding lights on his bumper.

I keep falling further and further behind because I want to keep him bewildered...plan is working perfectly. Finally he pulls over and waits for me to go by since I wont catch up to him and is leaning his head out the window backwards trying to see what just took place.

The look on his face was absolutely priceless and made my whole year already. I never expected to hang at all with that car. I know he would've pulled on me past 75 but I wouldn't go that fast on the street anyways so it wouldn't matter.

Remember, someone really has to be on there game to beat our cars on the street with rwd without tire smoke or shifting issues, from a dig of course.

Devoured a Solstice GXP today. Not much of a feat but it was fun nonetheless ;) Not only did the adjustable dampeners in the MKS allow me to stay glued to his ass around turns but I pulled so hard coming out of them I nearly rear ended him each time. I thought they had more in them until I googled it, 260hp 2.0T and 3k pounds. What he must have been thinking when he couldn't shake a 4500 pound luxury sedan. Truth is, what makes it fun for me is when the other guy thinks he can win.

Post by: Scott4957 on March 16, 2016, 07:25:23 AM
Merging onto the highway today I got on the MKS to cross a few lanes and get out in front of some slow traffic through a gap. Apparently some guy in a Buick thought I was trying to race him or something. He was in the far left lane, I had passed him by a few car lengths in the lane just to his right and was slowing back down to normal cursing speeds when he quickly sped up and slowed right next to me. I wasn't sure at first but when I sped up to move in front of him as i was coming up on traffic he quickly closed the gap again so I couldn't move over. I had hoped it was a Regal Turbo, but now I could see it was a V6 Lacrosse, equivalent to our 3.7. Purposely closing a gap is a good way to piss someone off, I should know as I use the tactic often haha. Old man sedan vs Old man sedan, had I been driving a 3.7 it would have been a race for the ages....the geriatric ages that is. After some quick maneuvering I had an open lane to blast up, he tried to follow but was likely choking on my exhaust gasses as he fell behind, wayyyy behind. He tried to play ricer as I slowed up ahead for traffic but I ensured he never got in front of me again. I did let him hear the BOV's while he got next to me for a few seconds in the slow lane when we finally hit traffic. Its not a great kill but I have to take what I can get in the MKS, now that I am VTA I will try to drum up some interest from more worthy opponents.

I was out data logging for Torrie last night, when I took a wrong turn and ended up in Mexico.... I had a turbo Civic Hatch next to me revving his engine. I looked over, and saw him punch it. I hit the happy pedal, and the SHO took OFF!!!! I put about 5 cars on him, and let out of it. When he caught up, I was going to give him a thumbs up, but he was so upset, I got the full arm out the window middle finger. I smiled, and kept driving. LOL!!!

When i walked off and left a bright yellow Pontiac G8 GXP, he was furious. He was pounding his steering wheel so hard I thought he'd break it. He quickly did a u turn and got outta Dodge.
So yea, most won't try the SHO, or are sore losers.
I tried to get a Lexus RCF to run me the other day from a light and he wouldn't.
I'm sure It's painful to realize you've dropped $50k+ only to be challenged, or schooled by a Taurus.

We just happened to see each other and he came after me(i destroyed him at the track but he was stock at the time and ran 13.8). Anyways 35mph roll up to about 95 he had me by 2 cars. I think its time to put new plugs and have torrie push the tune more plus i need to order meth kit. I cant believe how hard that thing pulled. Oh btw his mods are dps,intercooler,jb4 tune. He didnt want to go from a light as he admited id destroy him. Whats a good meth kit for our cars?

Post by: SHOdded on March 20, 2016, 02:37:30 AM
Don't feel too bad, the 135i is often underestimated.  Here is an idea of what you were up against:
http://www.burgertuning.com/jb4_pnp_BMW_performance_tuner.html (http://www.burgertuning.com/jb4_pnp_BMW_performance_tuner.html)
(http://www.burgertuning.com/images/jb4_dyno/dyno1.jpg)
Sample timeslip at the track with only a JB4 tune:
https://youtu.be/LKp50GF3bYQ?t=1m44s (https://youtu.be/LKp50GF3bYQ?t=1m44s)
N54, 6at, jb4 iso, dci, intercooler, downpipes, MT drag radials, 65% e85, 35% 102. Map 5@17-18psi.
11.92@123.6mph

Tune nets you approx 80 whp (they have varying tune levels also)
Intercooler can extract another 20-30 whp
Downpipes (catless) add 25 whp (when tuned)

If you haven't had the drivetrain fluids (trans/PTU/RDU) flushed recently, that's the first thing I'd pay attention to.  The 135i has up to a 1000 pound weight advantage, cut down to 880 lb with 120 lb passenger, still making the mods worth more motivation/lb.

135i on E85/93 octane mix, JB4 tune, Raceland downpipes, and Helix FMIC
50/50 mix of E85/93 is mainly used as an octane booster and takes advantage of map 7 lightweight race map

I was running late this am so I was driving hard.  I took off from light with a 2014 Mitsu Eclipse GT next to me and didn't think anything of it.  At the next light he was behind me and took off jumping to the lane next to me for the next light.  It really isn't much of a kill other than the look on his face.  I had to turn left on the street after the light so it wasn't much but it was enough to put 2 cars lengths on him and wipe the smile right off his face.  Too bad it wasn't warmer out this morning or I would have rolled the window down for my 3 year old to wave to him as we went by.

Nice! It was likely a 2012, that's the last model year. Sometimes the fun isn't about crushing the car but crushing the man. Or in many cases the boy.

Finally got someone to play today. Newer Dodge Ram diesel, crazy loud turbos huge stack exhaust.
Getting on the highway I was in the far lane turning left he had the inside.
From a red light he shot off but being a sharp left I had to take turn wide so, I wasn't sure he wanted to play until he took off so I was a little behind. About 2 cars.
His face was PRICELESS as I went by him. Walked by like he was parked.
You can tell that thing had some serious low end but could not keep up higher in the rpm.

Yeah i raced him at the track and won by a lil bit with a 12.6 to his 12.7. Funny thing is i had a better trap every time by half a mph to a full mph. I think the 2 extra people from 40 really made a huge difference for my car. He has some good new tires on the back i think MT something and I was worried he would destroy me but I still got him by a bit off the line wach time and stayed about the same the rest of the way with me pulling a bit in 3rd with longer gear.

I got to tangle with a SRT6 Chrysler Crossfire this morning. Not sure what was done to this thing but it had a wild full body vinyl wrap with racing numbers on the doors, looked like it was a Solo2 car or something. It was a hard top, black red and white vinyl wrap, blacked out wheels, it looked good. He turned onto the same road in front of me, once I got the light I caught up and sure enough got a red light after the road when to 4 lanes. It was a short light and it turned green as I was about 50 feet from coming to a stop next to him, I rolled through the light and waited for him to come up next to me. I figured I would have to poke at him seeing I was in the sleeper Lincoln but he had other plans. When he got to my door I heard him get on it and I dropped the hammer from about 20mph. He almost pulled even with me while the car spooled and downshifted but it was all over after that, I pulled hard on him and saw him falling behind quickly in the rear view. He skipped out on the next red light by, well, running the red light, but he did flicker the brake lights at me presumably as a thumbs up. Hopefully I see it around again so I can find out what all was done to it, exhaust at a min, 13.5 car stock which is about what it felt like.

No I haven't. Bruce, if you have a log of one of your fast runs I can compare some times though various gears to give you an idea of how it matches up. I may not make it to the track until fall.

I don't really have a way to datalog.   When you do take yours to the track, chances are good that there will not be another MKS in sight.  Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers are a dime a dozen at most tracks and beating them with a Lincoln is priceless.

Driving home yesterday I first passed by a great looking late model 5.0 Coyote all blacked out with blacked out windows and a throaty exhaust. Traffic was a bit thick so I continued on and came up on a late model 5.7 Hemi Challenger just a 1/4 mile or so further up the road. We were only about a mile from where the road opens up into several more lanes so I got in front of the Challenger and matched his speed. In a classic a-hole move, when the road opened up I moved into the fast lane with him following and then slowed down so he would have to pass me LOL. Gotta do what you gotta do in the sleepy Lincoln! As planned he moved out and I popped the throttle a few times until I annoyed him enough for him get on it. Like taking candy from a baby, even with the jump and a half car lead I walked by him like it was nothing. In the meantime the 5.0 must have caught up and seen the exchange because I caught him in the rear view moving all the way over to the open slow lane and getting on it hard! I got back in the gas to join him in a nice large gap, he gets the hit and the momentum from behind me, pulls about a half car and then I start to reel him in. We slow for traffic and he swings out into the far left lane, I follow behind and punch it as soon as I hear him get on it. A LOUD exhaust and big puffs of black smoke on the shifts, we go from about 70-130 and he can't shake me, I am peddling the car to keep from running right up on his bumper and when I see he is going to move right one lane I stay in it and go right by him. Neither wanted to play after that, they stayed far behind me even when we had some nice open spots to run. The Challenger exited at the same place as me and would not even make eye contact LOL. That didn't stop me from popping the BOV's at him a few times haha. I'm happy to see the MKS will outrun a 5.0 up top. I had little doubt I could take one from a dig in the 1/4 but was curious what it would look like from a roll and if I would just be on borrowed time as it closed in on the big end. No idea what was done to it but with the loud exhaust and the puffs of smoke I am sure something had been changed from stock.

I have never been beaten by a coyote Mustang at the track but they occasionally will have a little higher trap speed than mine so presumably they are gaining.  Most are manuals and I have concluded that there are plenty of guys who can't drive a stick and get the most out of it.

Maybe, I'm also a fully loaded MKS. After taking out the back seats for the audio install it's safe to say you can shave 100+ pounds really fast, that stuff was HEAVY! I did have the luck of a empty gas tank on those runs.

I was on the receiving end this afternoon and got shut down by a fairly new Challenger SRT w/ 392.  It had at a min. exhaust and maybe more but no real way to know or tell.

Rolled off a red light and I just laid into the SHO. I heard him step on it behind me but I was already out in front a little way.  Hit 3rd and thought I'd keep it close but he was able to just walk me right up to SHO shutting down at speed limiter. Once he caught me at my rear bumper it took him a good 5-7+ seconds to put me at his rear bumper.  He didn't do it very quickly or easily I will say so I don't feel to bad about it, but I took my whoopin' like a man. :(

That 392 is a mid 12's car with a low 4 sec 0-60, I would say thats damn good for a 93 3bar tuned SHO! You say you went to the limiter, if he didn't get by you by about 110mph then you had him in the 1/4. I know someone with the 392 scatpack and would love to run him, might have to find myself in the same place at the same time ;) Thanks for sharing!

Well on a brighter note, we shouldn't have any issue with a 3.6 Challenger LOL. I pulled up next to one tonight with a couple of young guys in it. The Lincoln is sooo sleepy, even throwing a few revs I had to jump it a bit after we left the light to get them to go haha. Needless to say it wasn't even close. We caught the next light and they had the windows down laughing about it. I gave the thumbs up and we went again, much worse the second time since we got to go from a dig. Still fun no matter what it is.

I had thought that Torrie moved/removed the limiter in my tunes but I can't say for sure so.

Regardless I guess I really need to get off my but and get to data logging for a better tune from him OR just go pick up this really nice triple black '13 GT500 'vert I know is for sale.  :D  Nothing says ass whoppin' like 600+ factory hp.

Well I'd like to say I won but really I cant....saw a Toyota Tacoma truckTRD with all kinds of stickers and fat tires tear into a VW Golf R. I thought I'd give him a run for his money. I positioned myself next to him and he did not even look at me while I edged up at the light trying to provoke him. The SHO stealth was not helping me get this going. The light turned green and I punched it, but he did not come so I got out of it and it upshifted. Then I heard him and I knew I was in deep. I definitely heard a supercharger whine, I punched it again but it did not downshift and he just blew right by with a roar. Holy crap. I knew even if it did downshift I probably wouldn't have been able to beat him. I looked it up and a stock one runs 4.4 0 to 60 and 13.5 in 1/4 for a big full sized truck-stock. With all the stickers I suspect he was not stock. I am however bone stock 2013 PP. I will look for him or other TRD s when I get a tune. .....

I finally got my first legit dig race tonight. I was out on the hunt and seen a 2002 SS Camaro at a light with a VERY loud exhaust and big shoes! I positioned myself to follow and got next to him at the next light. I wasn't going to let the opportunity pass, with his window down I let the Lincoln bounce off the rev limiter to get his attention. He had a grin on his face that said "not a chance in hell" As the yellow came on in the opposite lanes he brought the RPM's up, this thing was so loud I couldn't hear the quiet Lincoln and had to actually look at the tac as I did the same. We both launched at the exact same time and I immediately jumped out to a several car lead, he never looked like he was gaining ground. Lucky me we caught the next light, with the window down he was smiling even more than the first time, I asked if he wanted to go again and he nodded. Same result on the next run, pulled him really hard off the line and continued to put space between us until I let off. No clue what it had done other than huge shoes and a loud exhaust. Need to get that dash cam soon!

No problem chewing up a 2010ish 6.1L SRT8 Challenger this weekend. Of course I was on a road trip and my dash cam over wrote the clip by 30 minutes before I could get to it. We didn't get a clean run, it was more of a taunting by me after a group of us where passed by said Challenger in a no passing zone on a winding back road. I didn't pick on him while he was passing, but a few minutes later after he had gone out of sight we came back up on him when he had to stop for a couple of cars turning left. We where both stopped and he gunned it after the cars in front of him cleared, imagine his surprise when I was glued to his ass up to about 80. I had to peddle the MKS to keep from bumping him, I thought better of going past 80 or passing him for safety reasons and so my group that was following me didn't lose me. Turns out the SRT was going the same place we were, so I made a point to park right next to him at the restaurant to rub it in a bit. LOL I think its time to get a 64gb card for the camera!

Had a similar occurrence, we have a neighborhood (jackass) with a 06' GTO manual trans car with some bolt on's. Loud ass exhaust and this kid tears up the roads hauling ass everywhere. Laughed at me when I challenged him to race, but wasn't laughing after he got his butt handed to him. Wouldn't even come close to even say good run or piss off just turned tail and went the other direction. Needless to say every time I see him now I rub my eyes at him like I'm crying to rub it in.

He asked if it had a v8. I laughed and said nah its FWD with a 3.5L v6 and stock(yeah right).. We make a run down to mexico for me to claim my $20 he bet without breaking a sweat, I think the last dig was the only time I went full throttle and launched on him which is why you couldn't hear the fart can anymore..

Coming back from Cars & Coffee....(in Mexico)
Driving home, several miles from the event, sitting at stop light, a bright yellow, beautiful, Corvette, with carbon fibre ground effects package, pulled up beside me. I looked over and grinned, he nodded.
Rumble, growl, he pulled forward of the white line a full car length ahead of me, racing the engine.
Light turns green, roar from the Corvette, and I jump ahead. As I go by, he panics, he then lights up his rear wheels, spinning as I drive away. Just to rub it in, as I'm driving away, I put my arm out the window motioning him to come on... He sure sounded ferocious.
I watched in my rear view, as he made a U turn before the next light...hehehe.
I've got to get a GoPro.
(Power is only awesome if you know how, or have the equipment, to put it down.)

I would have went right home and got those codes sent out.  Hopefully, you'll see that guy again and take him but good.

I used to have a stock Porsche 944 in the mid 2000's and would constantly have people in Lexus is250 cars (basically the base Lexus at the time try to race me on freeway and wonder how I could beat them in my old school Porsche.

I had a Challenger R/T behind me at a light and he was right up on my behind so I knew he was in a hurry to get around me. The light turned green and I took off like a normal person and once there was room for him to get around to the left lane he quickly jumps over and guns it. He is at my back door when I punch it and he quickly falls back a car length and never recovers. I wish I could have seen his face when he realized he wasn't getting around this 4 door boat.
I love having a big, quick car.

So last night I went out looking for trouble. I tried to bait every car that looked like it MIGHT be piloted by somebody that would have a go. Some that I knew (or at least assumed) I wouldn't stand a chance. These were the results:

Gen 2 MR2: Forfeit
S197 Stang GT: Forfeit
Noisy old Jap?: Forfeit (Thinking 4th gen accord)
6 gen Charger: Forfeit (Not sure what trim it was, but he was driving aggressively until I called him out. It had dual exhaust, but no badges)
Newish sport bike: He took the bait! ...and ran away with it. No surprises here. I did have him to about the 60' tho. :P
Piped Camaro SS: Forfeit

This car is such a sleeper that it puts every other car to sleep as well, apparently.

Oh well. I'm guessing I'll get some takers tomorrow when I'm at the track.

Sitting next to a VERY douchey looking guy in a newer Audi SQ5 the other day at a stop light.Not sure exactly what year it was-looked pretty recent though. specs over the last few years for that car varies a good amount.  Didn't really have the inclination to race but he pretty much gunned it off the green light so i followed suit and slowly reeled him in until speeds were climbing too high for that particular street. Next light we line up again and i know it's gonna be a dig race. Even so . . i figured i'd see how my behemoth sedan matched up against the likely $65k european douche-wagon(it looked very optioned out) from a roll instead of an all out brake boost. Green light we both stomp it- my car falls on its face more than normal from a flat footed dig and he pulls about a car length on me. The guts of the SHO started to shine and i put him at my rear bumper shifting into 3rd gear around 65mph or so and then i shut it down. He stayed in it for another second and looked over and gave me a nod of approval as he passes by . . . then i got pulled over and got a ticket :pat: Won the battle. . lost the war damnit.

Going to work this morning, (in Mexico)... Look up and and see a new Lexus RCF on my bumper. Light turns green, headed down a four lane, no traffic.
He slowly came around me and I dropped in behind him on his bumper until we had to slow.
We wasn't very happy that he couldn't walk off and leave me in his $65k Lexus. Best part, I didn't have any tune loaded.

People are feisty today! Just went out to get dog food which is 10 minutes up the street...

On the way back, hit a red light, apparently (I didn't know) that the 3.7 Infinity next to me thought it was go time... he kept staring me down at the light...

He punches it off the line.. I was like helllll no, punched it... passed him... he seemed very preoccupied with driving in a straight line when I slowed down to look over at him...

NEXT...

Couple lights later a black SS Camaro(newer gen)flys up next to me at a red light... he makes no bones about it... give the gas a little touch to see if I am interested.. he must have seen me roll the infinity from behind somewhere...

So he had at least an exhaust system cause it sounds like crap... I look over and nod... he start power breaking when the other light turns yellow... I do the same... light turns green, I launch at around 2K and smoked him by a couple car lengths up to around 65 or so...

I slow down and look over.. he just gives me the thumbs up and shakes his head...

Must be the warmer weather...cause I normally drive like an old man...

While waiting at a light today a newer G37 pulls up next to me. The driver was trying to get a good look at the SHO, hiding behind his door pillar. We both met at the next light. I could tell he wanted to go by the way he lined up next to me. Didn’t brake boost at all. Just mashed the pedal to the floor. He did the same. It wasn’t even close. I left him like he was standing still. Can’t wait to get rid of these SHO badges. Gonna be ultimate sleeper kill story time.

Yesterday brand new STI from a roll and a dig. No match at all. He knew what he was getting into and gave thumbs up he said the SHO is a beast to fear.

Tonight BMW not sure which one as it was debadge and blacked out at night hard to tell it apart but you could hear it was boosted. No match again from a roll or a dig. He did roll he window to say his CEL sometimes turns on so if the Gap is very big it's because of the CEL. Just making excuses for when he would get his ass kicked.

Leaving work today, an STS-V flew past me while I was cruising along in the slow lane.  He changed lanes to be directly in front of me at the next traffic light, and left the light aggressively when it changed, just to catch the next one turning red.  I took the fast lane, pulled up beside him, shot him a "Let's Dance" expression, and waited for the green.  Light changes, he rolls into the throttle pretty hard, I let her eat, and he sees nothing but my peeling taillight chrome up til the next light.  He didn't even crack a smile at the next red light.   ;D

AJP has got my tune to perfection.

That is not bad considering it is a tad lighter than us and makes 470hp/440lb-ft.  Gotta love that AWD launch!

Nope, I was quite happy with it!  Granted at a track he would have probably reeled me in up top.  Down low though, our little snails make so much beautiful torque.   :icon_horns2:

A mature AJP 93 tune is in the neighborhood of 400hp/500lb-ft at the wheels if quality gas is available.

I sold and STSV (actually traded in) to get my SHO.  Super comfortable and sexy cars, but they cannot hang with a tuned Sho, maybe from a roll, but they just cannot put the power they have down that well.  Plus then AJP. game, set, match..

Not a big deal. My Flex is still stock until I figure out the warranty risk. Came across this jackass in a new Arcadia Denali who pulled out in front of me close enough that I chose to change lanes instead of braking. There was a popular left turn 1/2 mile ahead and he thought he was gonna block anyone from getting in front of him. I plan on going straight, but I know he was trying to stay in front, because he was flooring it if he saw me gain just a little. Now my new government job requires me to not draw attention to myself, so no more reckless speeding or it's my job. I love my job. But I can race to the speed limit all I want haha. We stop at the last light before his turn comes up, I plan to go straight. He thinks I want in the left lane to get on the interstate. He's watching me, brake boosting. I just stare ahead... green, no contest I was already 7 car lengths ahead before we hit 50, 5 over the limit. I let off the gas and cruise. He's still flooring it to catch me  just to have to slam on the brakes to make his left turn from the incorrect lane. Now I know that SUV is only 300HP. Those new Arcadia Denali's look sharp and expensive and he was being a cocky a-hole. So I felt good that a still stock 14 Flex hurt his ego hehe.

Quinid, there isn't much of a warranty risk running tune only. Keep 2 bar and tuner in car. If anything happens put on the two bar and reflash to stock. If they ask about a p1000 code tell them you pulled the batt cable to see if it cleared the condition.

I did that with the 2010 SHO and they never caught on. But isn't the 13+ ecu's different or easier to track past tunes?

I got to do some highway pulls against a 6.4L 300C SRT8 in the 2.7TT Fusion last night. We were not able to get side by side unfortunately, he was in front and got the hit, though it had an aftermarket exhaust that let me know when to go. We did this about 4 times and each time he held the gap for about 2 seconds and then I ran up on his butt like he was standing still. I'm happy with that, the 6.4 in the 300 is a 12.7-12.6 car and I would have expected it to pull up top and instead I was the one reeling in up top. Now I just need to get lined up with one of these 6.4's and try one from a dig.
