    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.
    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?

    Have heard you can just swap a lightening pulley on it and pick up 40hp.

    IRS rearend saps more power out than a live axle. I figured 18%.
