This past Saturday our team in Valdosta, GA loaded our 10R80 2018 GT onto the trailer before putting it to the 1/4-mile test at South Georgia Motor Sports Park. The mission? To test the factory Mustang’s drag strip credentials compared to the bolt-on power added by our Steeda Cold Air Intake. Hoping to make some observations solely on the performance of the intake, we held off on adding the tune for Saturday’s passes.
Just like everyone else who set out to enjoy some speed on Saturday, we hoped for some stellar conditions, but the weather did not cooperate. Despite it being the first weekend of December, the temperature teetered around the mid-70s throughout the day, with humidity reaching a sticky 100%. With the conditions, we were running at a density altitude of 1050 ft to over 1350 ft. Despite this, we were determined to make the most of the day and have some fun doing it! The stock Mustang ran a 12.35 @ 117 mph versus the Mustang with the Steeda Cold Air Intake, which ran a 12.11 @ 118 mph. A quarter second shed with just the Steeda Cold Air Intake.
