    Is there any quantifiable gain between stages or is this more of a 'seat of the pants' upgrade?
  2. M157: Drag radials on the rear wheel drive car and all...

    Drag radials on the rear wheel drive car and all else equal? My money is on the RWD car. No reason it shouldn't be able to cut a low 1.6, like the AWD car, and it will walk away with from it with...

    Ha, they're removing all of the comments calling them out on the BS posts.... fortunately, you can create an account in about three seconds. Have fun.

    Isn't this the same site that made the bogus "Ford is dumping the V8 Mustang" a few weeks back? I think there are some other less than credible headliens out of there too.

    I'd love to see a response. I don't really care much if a dyno is done in 4th vs 5th (sure, a few wtq and whp discrepancy), but I think we might be missing a piece to the puzzle here.
  7. S63/S63TU: Its only implied in the article and I see "5th"...

    Its only implied in the article and I see "5th" on all of the dyno runs, but I'm having a hard time believing these runs are done in the same gear.

    Was this on pump gas??? They must be pushing some crazy boost down low to reach those torque numbers.

    If you're going the NRE route there really isn't much to do besides sending a roller and a check. If you're buying an LSx block and building yourself then I advise you do lots and lots of homework...

    My point was more that you think the launch is 'unbelievable' because of camera trickery. A 1.7x 60' really isn't fast by today's standards. As for it being fast for the car; its AWD and has...

    Its really a function of the camera lens / angle... a 1.7x 60' isn't all that impressive (at all)
  14. Its simply a different tune so any number of...

    Its simply a different tune so any number of variables will effect top end power. How much or little boost you are running earlier in the RPM range is not one of them.

    When you go from putting 60% of power down in the first 3 gears to putting down 100%, I believe it. The car picked up something like 5mph in the front half alone.

    "it is interesting how the real world dragstrip result on a tuned car is so different from Car and Driver's 10.4 @ 135 with a stock car. Magazine times and actual timeslips are vastly different...

    There are plenty of Ford nuts with lots of money that will buy this car regardless of nitpicking. Take a look at the last generation of GT's; I can't think of a single other, non-hypercar, that has...

    Well, we could waste all day on a subjective argument so lets agree we both win. For what its worth, the standard 5.0 is already being spun to 8,000 RPM... sorta cool. I'm looking forward to seeing...

    Yikes, thats going to be a tough battle... only way I can see you winning that one is if you define "better" by having most potential with aftermarket. The Speciale is making nearly 600hp at 9,000...

    It will never sell at this price. He can keep it on the floor for 6 months and pay interest on it until he finally sells at or below sticker.
