I don't know how folks buy a 60k car and then immediately throw a tune on it... obviously its fresh to the market and tunes are going to be fairly experimental at this point. That's a risky wager to make when you're talking about a 50HP/50TQ gain when you're already driving the fastest production Mustang ever...

No shit? Amazing idea. Risk is risk regardless of how much money you have dude.

634whp on 93 pump gas for 60k pony car is pretty damn impressive. Hell I'd consider my build pretty involved, but for something to be completely stock from factory with nothing more than a tune to push that much power is god damn awesome. BRB, parting out my TA. :D

It all depends on the person's buying behavior. There are people in the marketplace that feel the need to purchase the most innovative technology in the marketplace. They gladly take on the risk because they get more enjoyment out of blazing the trail opposed to following the herd and can probably afford an expensive mistake. I would say these people are a small percentage of the buying market. These are the people that go out and purchase a $60K car, start slapping parts on the car, and tune the shit out of it.

The rest of us just sit back and watch because we do not want the risk exposure of purchasing a $60K car and taking the chance on a tune that can blow a motor. We would much rather watch someone else blow up their car a few times and then get a proven, reliable tune after the kinks are worked out.

With all due respect this makes no sense.

Tuning is tuning.
Get the A/F right and make sure it doesnt detonate.

What am I missing?

No respect needed. :D

It's just that Ford has been taking a GTR-like hard line on warranty work. I'd be heart broken to blow up a car like this one die to a flaky tune. Hell, there have been cases of a simple cai bowering up the 5.0s!

Id be wicked worried for my investment is all I'm saying. Maybe street the 3/36 was up I'd feel better.

Plus as I remember, Jon Lund tunes for Evolution. He is one of the best in the business.

You are WAY over simplifying it. If it was that easy why are you paying someone else to tuning your car?

People always want more. And 5 years ago no one really know who Evolution was. But because they now are ALWAYS trying to get the cars first, tuning them first, getting the best ET first, modifying first and so on they have A LOT of exposure online doing so. GREAT advertising for them. So even if they hurt the motor they fix it and move on. Because they learn from it and sell a lot of parts because of what they do. They car is a business write off. They get the tax benefits and get to enjoy the car. Then sell it for big money when they move to the next car.

They really did hog out that grill. There's nothing there at all.
Ya, they wanted as much air flow as possible to get through the many heat exchanges on the car.

Again, notice the "First...in the 10's". Like I said. haha


This is also still on the factory supercharger. Interested to see what the exact mods are. Crank pulley, intake, exhaust, weight reduction and so on. Because 141 is not happening with 634rwhp unless it was put on a serious diet.

Unfortunately this is for a magazine article. So we may not hear all the details for a while yet.
