Aluminum can handle HP just fine(except the cheeze pistons in it), I think ford just did that for their own insurance and to make it cheaper. How have the brakes changed?Originally posted by mhoward1
There are alot of changes, updates to the IRS, frame reinforcements, brakes, etc. And the engine can handle a lot more boost than an aluminum one.
ALso, some one just recently dyno'd on of the monsters and came up with 380 AT THE WHEELS. Can you say underated. No more of the 99 fiasco. I think they are trying to pull a Camaro LS1 stunt and underating it by about 30-40 HP.
It should be a Bad @ss car, too bad the F-body's won't be there to counter with it with a really big monster of their own.
And a few aftermarket people and SVT will already be offering pulley packages for it.
Have heard you can just swap a lightening pulley on it and pick up 40hp.
