Hey dealer is just a few miles from the house, impressive.

Guess I better stop asking Mustang owners I know if their teenage daughter still likes her Mustang & watching their faces. Same question with the Camaro owners, same result...

Yes, they are a dime a dozen, have you been to a drag strip? It's 40k, so there will even be more around in the near future. My buddy bought a mustang years ago and then realized that everyone had one or could have one and it wasn't so special anymore and it was slow compared to the competition (stock vs stock) and that's my point (he sold it less then a year later). It's no different then modding a Honda Civic. Mustangs are cheap and parts are cheap just like a Civic which is why there are a lot around (not saying that's bad but definitely doesn't make it special). This is actually why I liked Camaro's growing up as there was less of them, they were more expensive, parts were more expensive so not near as many people had them which is what I liked. This is also why I own a Viper, I like that things are more expensive (and not massed produced like other sport cars) as it makes it more prestigious and keeps most of the teeny boppers away. If the Viper was produced like the mustang then I would move on to something else.

Lets be honest it may take 5 years to build depending on person building it But it actually would help if it did take 5 years so there wouldn't be so many around.

How long did your twin turbo Viper take to build? I can at least say my car is not a dime a dozen especially in TT form, there are a few supercharged ones around by me but not TT.

Also the HP rating for this mustang is crank hp and not RWHP.

This. I'd buy a $25k 2015 GT Premium and put a $10k twin turbo kit on it and rock the shit out of it. I guarantee you'll hurt some feelings with it.

Totally agree. But still a mustang (but a fast one is better than a slow one).

It is impressive on modern cars how much hp you can get out of just simply bolting on a few parts. I wonder how well the tranny, axles, rear diff, etc... hold up to hard driving at the hp?

It does still seem that 700rwph is kind of the edge for a lot of the sports cars before major money needs to be stuck into them.

Hellion has an '8 second recipe' that addresses all drivetrain issues. $27k.

Not around here. Ford parts were always more expensive. Hence, Chevy engines in Stangs.

LOL. It's OK, he's not alone. There are several 2013 launch edition owners (Former owners) that took a bath on their trades because they paid upwards of $176K to have the 2013 LE when they were announced...only to panic and trade them in for 80's or less. Some of them folks are those dealer edition ACRE owners promoting sky rocketing values.

I emailed the dealership, the Whipple upgrade is $9995. The TT is good, but it's a Roe Vs. Paxton thing again. For less money and a lot more torque, plus the fun of driving, I would take the Whipple all day. Just got to find a good 2015-2018 Loaded up Mustang to upgrade

Thats not shabby at all. But the problem is it is still a mustang and for that price you could pick up a very nice used newer viper. But still damn good price for an 8 second car.
