Depends how stock it is.... 1. Its no factory Cobra Jet in a 73, no engine was called a CJ after 71. The car is proly mid 15's to high 14's, dependant on LOTS of variables, but if its not stock then who knows, keeping in mind the fastest of the vintage stangs was a 71 w/ a 351, ran mid 13s stock. I figure mine is high 13's to low 14's on a good day.

I believe you'll find that in stock form (not road test magaizne articles either ;) you'll have something that runs only solid 15's

Hehe, yeah, left that part out /forums/images/icons/wink.gif... But even a lightly modded (1000 - 1500 dollar range) C can get into the 13's pretty easily, great stock heads those cars have, I still have my stock cam and could run low 14's all day.

My '72 Q code Mustang's 351 4 bbl was described by Ford as a 351CJ. I believe this terminology has been used in some technical publications with the '73 model year.

I'm just going off what is published at fomoco.com... Don't have any evidence of my own, but I saw it there, and I know Mustang Monthly in the past asked for proof of existence of a 72 or later documented CJ, as the Q code engine was most commonly refered to after that as simply the Q code... But, like I said before I'm just going off what I've seen other places, so I will lose a battle of the wits beyond this, hehe /forums/images/icons/wink.gif.
