You would need serious weigh reduction in the rear and some ultra sticky tires up front.
An upgraded clutch/flywheel couldn't hurt and would probably be necessary after a few launches on the stock hardware anyway.

For a 94 Mustang GT maybe... LOL
(A new V6 Mustang will hit 60 just over 5 seconds & A good driver will hit low 4s in the new GT)

For reference of stock performance from a 2.0 duratec 5sp, here is the dynolicious run from my car
i really thought our stock car were quicker than that

do you think it would take more than basic bolt ons and stage 2 cams?
