Default want to run 12s whats the best way to do it?

i know people are going to tell me to search and hate on me but i have searched and a lot of times/mod lists seem inconsistant with eachother. so my question is: what should i do to hit in high 12s. i have a helix downpipe on the way, and probably going to get an accessport. oh and i have an 04 so a boost controller is out of the question.

Vishnu stage 2 gets you a best E.T. of ~12.6 seconds. Of course, any roughly similar combination of mods will do it too, but that's the easiest off-the-shelf package.

And yes, this is in the wrong forum.

On a N/A RS, a lightened pulley set should get you into the 11's easily.

My best friend rebuilt a '69 (green metallic) and his dad has a '72 (Blue metallic). The green one, last I knew, resides in Mont Vernon after my friend sold it. The blue one, when it is not in storage, drives around Amherst, or up to Keene when my buddy gets to take it out.

Great cars. Loads of fun to drive.

I actually did change my headgaskets....when I put in my stage II heads....94,000 miles, and only 1 wheel bearing went bad...that's including auto-x, rally-x, and basic off-road abuse... let's see any american car do that.

You're annoying. Stop posting until you don't have ignorance/bias/stupidity dripping from your words...

You are wrong, or incorrect most of the time.

The car in the picture has independent rear. Shims are not the same as feeler gauges, and recommending to someone to change their own cams in their driveway when they don't know the difference between a timing belt and a accesory belt is assinine. A cam seal and oil pump are not normally "rust proofing" the under hood of a Subaru unless you are driving like you shouldn't be licenced. Wrecking second gear is evidence of that. Simply ruining the reliability of a car, by dring it hard, does not make your problems normal.

I am also 90% sure that you did not change your own parts as you claim to have. You defer to your "Subaru tech" buddy way to frequently when answering posts, usually when dissagreeing with people. You may have done the wrenching, but he was looking over your shoulder the whole time.

Being wrong, then bringing attitude is juvenile. Intellegence and knowledge go hand in hand on a message board, and you are lacking at least one of them.

boy you really got a hair across your **s. first, you don't know the first thing about what I do or what I have done or haven't done. second, why is someone posting a mustang, live axle or not, in a subaru forum. third, the only way one suceeds in life is by trying. far be it for you or me or anyone to tell the man whether or not he should or should not try to do the job himself. You are alluding to the fact that he is incapable of doing the job, without even asking him. BTW, i did the cams by myself you ignoramus. I also pulled the motor myself when I did my heads, while my "suby tech" wasn't looking over my shoulder, 'cause he was busy under the car with the tranny and rear diff. you obviously think i walk around with a diaper on my head. about being wrong all the time, tell me one thing other than the description of the feeler gauges, that is incorrect about the cam swap. YOU CAN'T. if you bothered to read it fully, you would see me refer to the subaru factory shop manual, and not to just wing it, multiple times....the "rust proofing" quote that you acuse me of driving to endanger is actually a tech joke from the dealership itself, not something I made up. I was giving the guy advice because he didn't want to spend alot of money, and I gave extremely detailed instructions on how to do the job.SOOO....MYOB. go find someone else to insult. I thought these forums were for swapping useful info, not for isulting fellow subaru owners.

First off, I was joking. Second, the title does read "want to run 12s whats the best way to do it?"... Subaru or not, that model of Mustang does run 12s, consistently, bone stock. Seems like a pretty good way to do it.

To the rest of your post, all I can say is... wow I have no idea where to start on that, and I'm too tired to care...

There's room for more than Subaru. It's really OK that way. Ease up off your high horse and remember that many on the boards own Subarus as well as other cars, maybe even domestics. We tend to treat people with respect if they don't presume too much before running their fingers over a keyboard. Never presume that insulting American cars will be well received. There are boards where that's the norm, but this is generally not one of them.
