This is the first time I drove the Bullitt to the track. With the motor being ice cold, I maneged to pull a 13.61 @ 101.39 not to be this time. I was too tired to load the car on the trailer. So I'll just drive the car (it needs the miles on her anyway) 88 miles oneway instead. Come to find out later that was a big mistake. Car was hot, weather cool, humidity high.... well anyway here are the times.

R/T .544
60' 2.052
330 5.748
1/8 8.809
MPH 80.55
1000 11.42
1/4 13.636
MPH 102.05


13.38 not to be this time.

sounds like you want an all-out drag setup. I'd definitely go 4.10's or maybe even 4.30's. 3.55s won't make much difference.

By the numbers your current combo is making an avg hp of 307 at 74 degrees and 50% humidity at an elevation less than 500ft above sea level. To get to your projected 12.90 times you need to add apprx 60 to 70 hp and to reach the lofty 11.40 target range you need to increase your current combo by apprx 200hp. How fast do you want to go/ How much do you want to spend?

Correction. To get to the 11.4 range you need to add apprx 250hp to your current combo. The cobra mentioned above is making just shy of 500hp based on the conditions listed above and an apprx vehicle weight of 3700lbs with driver. Also, for every 100lbs of vehicle weight different from 3700lbs you reduce current or required hp by 10-15.

I think you seem to forget one thing 1BADBULLITT,I do own my own mustang performance shop in deland, fla.
Two years ago we installed a pro-charger p1sc
blower to '99 stock mustang (and I do mean stock) except for two flowmaster mufflers. and that is it. The car ran a 12.32 @ 109.98
on slicks.I feel the bullitt has a lot more potential. Take a look at Mike Murillo, the owner of Murillo motorsports he runs the texas jam car in outlaw class, well anyway
he did a '99 mustang with a prochager and a 50shoot of nos. how does 10.60s sound and the car is still very streetable. As far as how much horsepower do I need? Its not all in the horsepower, suspension has alot to do with it.
I also owned a '94 cobra with a powerdyne 6lbs kit had the car for 5yrs. no motorwork,
cobra r rims 17x9 on all four corners w/koni
shocks and struts, What I'am trying to say is the car was set up for road racing not the drag strip. Also had larger sway bar up front, m5300-c springs, bbk upper and lower control arms , and a lot of other nice stuff
best time on 285 40 17 zr 12.76 @ 112.96
best time on nittos 275 40 17 drag rad.
[email protected] I'am sorry if it sounds like am
getting out of hand here, I think I'll shut up now. As far as how much money do I want to
spend? It makes it a lot more fun when you own your own shop.

Congrats on owning your own performance shop and best of success with it. Unlike many of the performance claims by many others on this board I believe you are being very upfront and truthful. I was simply crunching the numbers to give close figures on where your combination is and where it should need to go to reach your goals. I included the needed atmospheric and car parameters to indicate my basis for the given results. Using the same formulas and basic figures, your added performance examples are right on the numbers. Agreeably, upgrading your hot rod by means of your own shop is considerably more rewarding than emptying a personal bank account. Did I mention I work for the IRS? :grin:

Thanks for the kind words 1BadBullitt, And no, you did not mention that you work for the
Internal Revenue Department. I'll keep you posted on the mods of the bullitt.

you need 360 to 370 hp to run 12.90?? huh??

You're way off on your weight figures. Where do you get 3700lbs? My Bullitt (with 1/4 tank gas, spare/jack removed, and me [180lbs]) weighs 3472. This is on a NHRA scale at Houston Raceway Park.

You're also lacking another important factor in your formula: the 60ft. Your figures might be about right if you're pulling 2.0 60fts, but not even close for 1.9 or less launches.

I'm running 13.3s with 240rwhp/280rwtq (crank 282 hp 329 tq) and a 1.88 60ft. And thats with the stock gears.

Just kidding on the IRS amer. As for JB, please note the above reply that states for every 100 lbs of weight difference you decrease computed or needed horsepower by 10 to 15hp. Also note that due to our heated rivalry elsewhere, I drove the bullitt to the weigh station and had it weighed. I was completely shocked to discover that it only weighed 3340lbs with just under half a tank of gas. The 3700lb figure came from an article I read about test driving the Bullitt. If I locate the article again I will list it for your reference. And for the real ball buster JB. After weighing the Bullitt myself and computing the numbers based on your et and mph info, your claims appear to be possible. So for anyone concerned I stand corrected. At this time I don't necessarily believe you but as a christian I believe in miracles
