    who knows they aren't out yet. Considering they have 202hp I still suspect 15s as before.

    Because he works for Ford, has one of the fastest V6 Mustangs in existence, and has probably already driven it (matter of fact I know he has, he brought a pre-production GT to the V6 Ford Challenge earlier this year).

    He might even be faster than your Neon. :uhh:

    but yeah, since hardly anyone is a "decent driver"... they'll run 15s or higher. :crazy:

    Let me put it this way and this is no BS...

    The V6 5spd turned out too good. Its quicker than it was supposed to be. They actually corked the exhaust and tuned it down to shave some power out of it. From a standing start with drivers being equal....it would hang with the GTs a little too well ;) 0-60s in the low 6s were easy. As built they will still be high 6s.

    The top mods for the 05: duals or big single exhaust, 3.73s, chip and a CAI = you'll take stock 99-04 GTs and will run with the 05 GTs.

    I know you work for ford, and I still find that bold and hard to belive! I know youve probably also herd rumors about the duratec 3.5l being the base engine in as early as the 07 stang. I doubt it, but what do you think.

    By the way, if that is the case, with you saying the 4.0 is that quick, I can see a lot of people trying to do a 4.0 swap.

    Do you belive the 4.0 is a better engine all around than the last generation 3.8?

    The 3.5L is an old rumor that refuses to die on the net....ain't gonna happen.

    Read my post in the 4.0L section.
