I also saw an article where a '01 GT could not break 6 seconds 0-60 on a 102 degree day and was in the high 14's in the quarter. The same article had the Bullitt beating the GT by about 3 tenths 0-60 and the quarter. I think we sometimes read too much into one road test. Every car is going to run slightly differently based on driver, track conditions, temperature, etc.... Sometimes you get lucky and have a motor that was built a little tighter than another. Production tolerances can vary quite a bit. I recall back in the early 90's reading that a stock 5.0 LX ran mid 13's. The article attributed it to an expecially strong motor or tweaking by the manuf., before test.
