Strictly Performance has First 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 in the 9’s

strictlyperformance-2011mustanggtForget about the 11’s and forget about the 10’s–Strictly Performance now has the official title of first 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 in the 9-second quarter-mile range.  They accomplished this feat during a test and tune event at Houston Raceway Park where their newly aquired, fresh off the lot with paper tags white 2011 Mustang GT ran a 9.96 @ 137 MPH.

How did they do it you might ask–well Strictly Performance swapped out the stock six-speed transmission for a C4 and than added a direct port nitrous system along with a custom prototype tune.  A set of upper and lower control arms along with Bogart racing wheels kept this Mustang GT screaming down the drag strip.  On the dyno the 5.0-liter V-8 engine threw down an insane 656 rear-wheel horsepower which comes courtesy of the nitrous.  How about the stock block holding up under those conditions, not bad at all.  Check out the video below to see the run.
