The 2013 V6 Ford Mustang is rated by the factory at producing 305 Hp and Torque: 280 ft-lbs. @ 4250 rpm from its 3.7 Liter engine.
At Sea Level it will accelerate from 0-60 MPH in about 5.5 seconds. But when we tested the car at about one mile above sea level in Denver we got a 0-60 MPH time of 7.4 seconds.
To find out why there’s such a significant difference between the two times we put the new 2013 3.7L V6 Mustang on a Dyno.
Thanks to Brian Tobia at Tobz Performance and their Mustang Dyno (yes we put a Mustang on a Mustang Dyno) we were able to Dyno test the newest pony car to determine the real horsepower at the rear wheels at one mile above sea level.
