IMO a good flux capacitor would be your best bet to go fast. They are kinda pricy but worth it.

it all depends on what you consider rediculously fast....do you mean like 10 second fast or do you mean like fast enough to have fun on the streets?

Are you typing on a phone, or is there a good reason why you can't capitalize anything or type out words like "you" or "anyone"?
Also when you are typing and a word is underlined in red, it is misspelled. Sorry to be a dick I just don't understand what kids are doing in school these days. I can hardly understand what you are asking.

If you want a mustang to be significantly faster than stock, you probably need to supercharge it, which will cost a few thousand in parts at least, and obviously you are going to need to pay someone a good amount to install it.

Haha Get a Ranger and put a 6.7 cummins in it then you will be fast and still go where you wanna go... Also I work at a chrysler dealer and our chrysler rep was tellin us about a guy who ordered a new wrangler and wanted a 6.1 hemi in it so they put it in there and made it EPA approved.

I have always had trucks, then when my last one was totaled, I bought a 2008 Mustang GT. Much faster than any truck I had and more fun of course.

But then I couldn't transport my quad anymore, I couldn't hit the trails I was used to, I couldn't see over the car in front of me anymore, my payment shot up, and my insurance spiked! Oh yah, I had to slow down for puny bumps in the road too! And I don't care how fast your car is, when you live in Vegas, if everyone is going the speed limit you aren't going anywhere!

I wouldn't buy a Stang unless I had a truck to use on bad weather days and to go wheeling, shooting and hunting.

If you have no mechanical experience, I recommend getting an older 5.0. Then work on it yourself until you mess up. Then take it to a shop and have it done right if need be. Learn as you go. And if you wreck it, you wont be out $10,000+ in mods+$20,000 car.


That black mustang looks very nice.

thats a nice stang!!!

chance- haha thats awesome!!!

crein2009- it depends...if you live in an area like "ihatetechnology" it would be ok to get a car like that. but if you live in an area like me you better have a truck or something to drive. i live out in the country 20kms from the nearest town and the roads arent the greatest so a nice car like that wouldnt last long around here.. most people around here park them for the winter. i say grab the wrangler.. and plus i need a truck as i haul lots of quads, bikes, lawnmowers etc.. hell i'd even get a jeep and tow a little trailer around when i want to haul ****.. my uncle has a 99 YJ 4.0L 4x4 5 speed with a set of 31's on it.. its a nice jeep and he tows a little trailer around when he comes lawnmower racing with us.

i used to drive a car but hated it because you cant put nothing into it..

no mechanical experience + fast car = something bad

get a beater and tinker with it first and work your way up to a nice car once you know your way around a vehicle.

when you were little did you shoot out of your moms vag like sonic the hedgehog?

no......you crawled, stumbled, walked THEN ran.

it takes babysteps.....don't just jump in a fast car without knowing ANYTHING about them....sure you can, and most people do but if you're really interested in cars and going fast, start slow.
