"The way a press launch for a new car works is, a car manufacturer flies a group of automotive journalists to a nice location, pays their expenses, wines and dines them for several days, and lets them drive the new car all over the place. Then they go home and write objective stories."

a magazine, in reviewing the GT500 said, "a pulley change away from world domination"
i personally saw a GT500 get some work done.
bone stock with 1k miles on the clock it dynoed 400whp.
ported stock blower
thats with full stock exhaust and still on 91 octane.
i'd like to see a "superior chevy", which doesnt need a supercharger, get a 130whp gain with such cheap and simple mods and still have the stock exhaust.
ford goes with technology, chevy goes with displacement. i would much rather have the DETUNED, 5.4 liter DOHC SUPERCHARGED engine than a small block chevy that was worked over so that it displaces 7 liters.
You'd rather have the "DETUNED, 5.4 liter DOHC SUPERCHARGED engine", I'd rather have the 7.0 and then supercharge that.
If I had a choice, I'd rather have the 7 liter vette, and I own a 455 whp blown stang. If the GT500 weighed 3000 lbs instead of 4000 lbs, I'd choose it instead. A lot of mustang guys feel the same.

hehe, for the cost of supercharging the 7.0, you can yank the SC from the 5.4, sell it and then turbo charge the 5.4 besides, mods for the vette have the vette tax.
im sure everyone here knows what ford's dohc 5.4l engine can do with a couple of turbos.
i have worked on a lot of turbo mustangs and lightnings. amazing power, great driveability, and easy on the ears.
