    Just wanted to introduce myself.
    My residence is in Maryland, and I am a novice to mustangs and drag racing.
    I'm also an old guy...

    I am interested in finding an automatic 94/95 coupe, and using it on the street sometimes (3K yr),
    and at at the drag strip several times a year.

    I know the SN95's are a little heavy...but I just like them better than the earlier models.
    It is important for me to drag a car that is street capable.
    I am really most interested in test and tune days and maybe some day a little bracket racing.
    My ultimate goal would be to have a car that could dial in at 12.9, but I am not sure how much hp
    and $ that would require.

    I am most interested in finding out on this site the weak links for a stock SN 95 automatic.

    I am sure most of the answers are here....but I hope to ask a few questions when I get really stuck.
    I would like a car that would be fun to modify, reliable at the track, and naturally aspirated.
    I really want to learn about tuning the most.

    Thanks guys for all the kind welcome messages.

    About how many rwhp does it take to move a 3400 lb car to a 13.0 sec 1/4 mi.?

    Welcome and I'm old too!!

    Just guessing but with 300 rwhp and a good convertor and 4.10 gears you should be ok.

    With simple suspension mods, gears and nitrous ya'll be running 13s no sweat...
