Took my stock SEL V6 to the track when it was still fairly new last Summer.
I was hoping to at least run in the 15s like all my Taurus SHOs did when they were still stock.
Best time was a rather disappointing 16.55.
It seemed to really come out of the hole strong but die out at about 3/4 track.

I went to an 1/8 mile track in October ran quite a few passes. They were very consistant to. 
I have the SEL V6 6 speed
10.541 @67.07mph, 2.439 60' 330 ft 6.834, [email protected] 594 FT 9.87
10.550 @67.04mph, 2.433 60', 330 ft 6.84, [email protected] 594 FT 9.88.
10.537 @66.97mph, 2.434 60' 330 ft 6.83, [email protected] 594 FT 9.86
The worst was a 10.574 @66.73mph, 2.428 60', [email protected] 594 FT 9.90

Mind you that I put the car in low and it seems to shift every gear at 5500 rpm!  This is a perfect bracket racer if you ask me.  I don't know why I didn't make any passes leaving it in drive because it shifts about at 6300.  No doubt it would be faster but maybe not as consistant.

how did you do your runs? did you leave t/c on? things like that, curious cause autoweek ran 0-60 7.0 and 1/4 in 15.4, and we all know some of their drivers are slow, not real drag racers.

I do not have traction control. (I usually drag race motorcycles). If I leave the car in "D" the rpm's run out to 6000+ before it shifts and it would run faster times. But when you bracket race it is best to be consistant.

I have a 2.3 5-speed fusion and I took my car to the local drag strip (moroso) and the best i could do was a 16.5 @83.7 with a 2.4 short time. I was there when the pinks tv show was making a show that will air soon, some sick cars were there (I was the only stock car there). This is with close to 90 pounds removed and the air silencer removed. Temp. was 50 F. A new mustang gt automatic with bolt-ons was running 13.1s all night with about 100 pounds added to the weight of the car.

That's the gearing ratios right there.

Still playing with my car and not finished tuning but I have a fully loaded 06 Lincoln zephyr(so its probably a little heavy). Fastest time so far is a 15.4 with a 2.32 60ft time.My best trap speed has been 89.7 mph.

This is obviously about half a sec or so faster than stock. My car has the Magnaflow exhaust, Steeda Intake, and a special tune im still working on and will hopefully be selling soon.

Altitude, temp, tires are the things that seem to be the biggest factors with people when I go to the strip. I run goodyear eagle f1 gs-d3's and seldomly loose traction. colder days (50's to 60s) usually best time to run and also if you're up in elevation (like utah/colorado) your car will run slower. But there is no sub for seat time and practice. good reaction time, good traction, preloading and going with as little weight as possible will be the best way for you. I run without T/C and have pulled 15.131 stock. I believe the magazine times are all estimated on the generic 15 percent loss/input hp/input tq/ input lbs. calculator. most of the articles I have ready say est. for all times. When I go to the track the only thing that is not normal is the 2 gal of 108 and 1 gal of 93 that I use. Maybe this will help you.

wow, I was expecting some faster times for stock v6's based on the seat of the pants feel of my 4 banger vs my vic. My 97 vic (previous car) was running 15.9-16.2 depending on outside temp (I ran it a lot hehe). My Milan actually feels more powerful than the vic did.

And hell, if the advertised hp rating is accurate, it IS more powerful than my vic lol (i dynoed the vic this spring, 151hp 189tq)

Dynos are done to the wheels.According to your Crownvic dyno, its making about 15 hp and 55 lbft(!) more than your Milan. Now it does weigh a lot more so the hp advantage is pretty much inconsequential. but that torque is what matters, especially at the dragstrip.And the fact that the Vic is rwd. Its gonna get off the line a lot better than your Milan and run better times at the track. In fact the V6 is only making about 10 more hp and like 10 lb ft less than the vic. It's only *slightly faster* than your old car at the strip(some people havent been any faster).

FYI, im making mighty close to 200whp and just now can I hope to break into the 14's when the conditions are perfect. :/
