According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Fraire’s heavily modified 2011 Ford Mustang was then clocked doing 176 mph and 208 mph, and he tried to elude the chase vehicle by turning off his headlights and brake lights.
5.0 ON THE DYNO Ford says the 2011 Mustang 5.0 makes 412 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 390 pound-feet of torque at 4250 rpm. To check that number, we took the new 5.0 to our dyno shop of record, the research and development department at K&N Air Filters in Riverside, California. After examining the power peaks, K&N’s techs suggested we use the fourth gear pulls for the 5.0-liter. Here’s what we think is the most correct output figure for the new Mustang V-8: 2011 Mustang 5.0 (4th gear pull, 15% powertrain loss) Claimed horsepower: 412 hp @ 6500 rpm Claimed torque: 390 lb-ft @ 4250 rpm Actual horsepower: 435 hp 6500 rpm Actual torque: 404 lb-ft @ 4400 rpm

Can someone explain to me how an Oklahoma state trooper clocks the guy and he get's pulled over by a Canadian Trooper?
Doesn't pass the sniff test for me!
Whats more troubling is the debate about the car's ability vs the facts of the story! Last time I checked there was a couple of state's between Canada and Oklahoma City.

It is possible to get a 2011 5.0 Mustang up to 208mph. It would take a lot of engine mods, and a low ratio rear end.

There is no way he was topping 200mph. Well at least I'll say very unlikely. I'd have to see the specs, I mean we are talking a lot of money that a typical 19 year old doesn't have.

I'm pretty sure the 'Canadian' they are referring to is Canadian County, Oklahoma. Not Canadians from Canada.
