    Yeah, how dare he try to enjoy his ride in peace without some idiot egging him on!

    Someone explain to me how this is any different than the ricer in the primered Honda who revs his engine at you while at a stoplight?

    It is disapointing to see a GT 500 and not get to race it at least a bit

    My point is, If you spend 200k on a super car than you should drive it like it was meant to be driven. I wasnt being obnoxious, I just wanted to see it go.

    So driving like an idiot and racing everything on a public road is how it's meant to be driven?

    Theres no right way to enjoy a car. They payed for it whatever makes them happy is how it is "meant to be" driven.

No you just assume they take the regular old 5.4 and put it in the GT500 with a S/C slapped on it. It is typical fanboy thinking like yours that gives everyone else in the community a bad name. If you honestly think that a turbo on the WRX/STI is just an added bonus and people would pay for the car sans turbo because all they really want is AWD you are only fooling yourself. Don't be a fanboy, it is very unbecoming.
    to further prove your point

    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.

    intake
    pulley
    ported stock blower
    tune

    530whp

    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.

    What do you mean by intake? As in "manifold" or as in "air filter/power pipe/etc."

    That is what he means. Just a simple Ram Air or something like that. Most air intakes add around 15-20 rwhp on the 03/04 Cobras. Also, supposedly The stock one on the GT500 is having problems and they are being replaced by Ford.

    Obviously, a powerplant engineered from the get-go to be FI has more bolt-on potential. The Cobra's engine has always been great to start with, but it's weight was and still is it's weakness.

    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.

    I think he meant engine to engine, not car to car. So basically if he had the choice of engine to drop in his X-Car, he would chose the S/C'd 5.4L in the GT500 over the 7.0L that the Z06 carries. It is a tough call for me. Can I take the 5.4L out of the GT and TT it? If so, that is what I am going for, lol.

    Nah. When you can afford something like that, you can make those kinds of claims. Until then: tough.

    thats the best part, i like getting my money's worth out of mods, its for that reason that i will never buy a 350z/g35

    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.
