  1. To bad Shelby is whoring out his name.
     
  2. Heh, It's what you get when you ask for "The Ultimate Mustang" <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
    Still, I would work on the suspension, gearbox, traction control and other stuff like that just a little more before giving it a freakin' huge supercharger. Power is nothing without control.
     
  3. every year I think "This year's mustang would make an awesome used car in 4 years. maybe I should consider it then" and then every year ford kicks me in the balls by making the next years model that much better. totally gay.
     
  4. also, this GT may not have to come in at 3500ish pounds to be really jaw dropping, but it DOES have to com in at 27kish. I get the distinct impression this might be the most expensive new mustang GT ever. and that would be sad.
     
  5. I can see it coming out 100 pounds lighter with the new motor.
     
  6. Well, with the 100 hp boost, we're gonna se some change in the price. Still, the next GT will most likely cost even more...
     
  7. Here you go.
     
  8. Nice pics
     
  9. Pretty intake manifold, reminds me of the old SHO.
     
  10. That's exactly what I thought.
     
  11. much better looking than the 4.6
     
  12. I kind of like the SHO intake.
     
  13. Great looking engine!
     
  14. So much nicer than the disorganized rats nest that was the previous engine.

    Are the ZR1 and Viper ACR also failures?

    Name some cars in that price range that can annihilate those.

    4WD kills :D
     
  19. And, it doesn't require $400 oil changes.
     
  20. It'll be interesting to see:

    1. How much it costs
    2. How much it weighs
    3. How well it handles

    It will only be good for the Camaro if the Mustang steps it up because GM ALWAYS makes sure the Camaro outperforms the Mustang by at least a bit. Perhaps it'll even be enough to put me back in the Mustang camp as I was eons ago, who knows!
