    I am curious what my new, bone stock 2019 GT with performance pack ($3995) and 3.55 gears will do? 1/4 mile, 60 ft, mph? I am in minnesota, average DA is 2,000 ft, 50% humidity on a decent day.
    Also, what would a basic 93 octane tune gain me? With or without a CAI package? I have a hard time believing Ford engineers left anything on the table that an aftermarket CAI could improve. A lot of times add on mods are not giving the gains promised, so i am asking for personal experiance.

    Gregsdart, I suggest you go to Brainerd and run the car at their Wednesday night street legal drags. Rock Falls, Wisconsin also has a Wednesday night "run what you brung" show. I am from the Twin Cities area run my 2018 GT at both events when I can work them into my schedule. It is great fun and you can see what the car will do.

    In our humid Midwest summers, you would probably run low 12s @ around 116 or so, 1.9 60s. When it cools off this fall, you could dip into the 11s. I ran 11.89 @ 118 last fall in Rock Falls. My car doesn't have the performance pack and is a 401A car will all the other options so it is a bit on the porky side. Your car may be quicker.

    A 93 tune will help a little (not a ton) but E85 tunes seem to be the hot set-up. Opinions vary on the aftermarket CAI but I personally do not think they are worth the money.

    Agreed best bang for your buck keep stock intake and go e85 or flex tune.

    And as stated take it to the track and have at it. Some tracks have special nights for stock cars specifically. Mid/High 11s 118-122 are good stock numbers to shoot for if you have the 401 package (prem + pp) that includes drive modes, specifically drag mode. Base models with no drive modes I would guess are more like mid 12s.

    Mine is a base GT, but has the pp1 and 3.55 gears. Those tires stick darn good!
    Edit
    I have drag mode, etc. With 3.55 gears and the sport cup tires, it didn't hop much if at all on a few street "tests"

    My car is a base with no drag mode, and my best is 12.52 @ 114, which was in 3500 DA, tire only. I'd think with drag mode and better air you should be able to beat me.

    I had devastating wheel hop on the 1-2 shift in drag mode until I got drag radials. I could only use sport mode with the street tires and had a best of 12.3 @ 115.

    The street tires launched great on a prepped surface so the DRs had very little impact on my 60. However the ability to use drag mode cut a solid 4 tenths off my best time compared with just using sport mode.

    What in the world is "drag mode" doing to shave a half second or more? That's a lot. Geesh, I think I ordered the wrong car package.

    Drag mode is a tune in itself. Accelerates through shifts etc. Night and day difference for the strip. Other drive modes way different too. Doubt I would have purchased without as normal isn't the most responsive.

    There is a big difference in normal and sport mode in my car. Sport shifts a lot harder and holds gears longer. Probably still not as aggressive though. Sigh... you all are going to make me want a real tune on my car sooner than my warranty runs out. lol

    I've been told I don't have enough injector/fuel pump for the supercharger and e85?

    It has its advantages. Definitely helps with knock and temps, but just not to the extent of corn. More ongoing upkeep too and depending on tuner likely not as much timing being added. But still > 91/93 alone.
