1st run with my cut-out uncapped
(just curious to see what diff. it made)

reaction-1.0519
60-2.3527
1/8-10.3436 :eek:
1/416.0398 @ 86.02 :eek:

reaction-0.675
60-2.3251
1/8-10.0802

Mid-15s sounds about right for your car. An automatic convertible isn't exactly the fastest production Mustang out. I ran mid-15s in my '95 automatic before I got smart attacked the part of the car which made my times suck (the auto tranny). I installed a Precision Industries converter with a 3000 stall along with a Trans-Go shift kit. My times quickly went down to a 14.2 and eventually a best of [email protected] with bolt-ons.

I ran a 15.7 in my 96 AUTO STOCK (filter and all) with the cracked intake recall to boot. After every single bolt-on besides headers and the headswap kit I ran a 14.5 when I sold the car which is over 1 second in the 1/4. Get a converter, 4.10 gears, tranny cooler and a PA valve body and you will be in business. I hate to say it but the old automatics are some of the slowest *POS* you can buy. I would also look into doing the headswap if its a possibility.
