Many years ago I used to come to this site when the automath calculators were free (many many years ago) back then I failed to realize that there was a forum at the time but after recently looking around here it looks pretty cool so I decided to join.

I'm a numbers cruncher and love estimating et's and horsepower and using that power to go fast with less. I own a '90 FL SSP coupe with stock HCI and full bolt-ons with suspension, I was always around Chevys but over 20 yrs ago a new '86 Mercury Capri taught me my Dad's old Chevelle wasn't as fast as I thought it was.



Peace Cool

Hey thanks cutlass389, my car is from Florida and it's a Special Service Package Mustang, they were built between '82-'93 and were all coupes. They were used in all types law enforcement and typically were used to catch speeders.

Thanks squeeezer, I'm going to say mid-high 11's N/A and mid-high 10's on spray. I based this off of your estimated weight and power, just for reference my friends Mustang with a C-4 at 3200 lbs dynoed at 400 rwhp (approx 500 flywheel) and runs low 11's in the heat and high 10's in the fall. I didn't see it listed but I'm assuming you have a transbrake, your car makes good power and torque..........good luck.
