    I won't even try to explain it all, but here's a few 75 frame (where it started), 88 cab, custom front, 90 box, 73 motor, 80 front axel and transfercase, 78 transmission, 81 rear, and several others mixed in for other parts. It's a 1 ton reg cab short box step side with a big block. Only if they made them that way from the factory....

    +1.. 5.0 suck ass.. i dont know about a 3.4.. but i raced an AT 5.0 when i had my 99 3.8 and he only got me by about a car length.. i doubt its trapping 95.. more like high 80s??? with mods idk.. but stock.. please..

    Yep, I'm not TOO far off from stock.. just a few goodies.. And yeah he beat me pretty good.. I'm thinking it's because the 4.10's he had, also I did have 2 extra people in the car, so that might have made the difference right there..

    Either way I have the 4.10's waiting to be put in sometime soon.. hopefully this weekend so I'll be ahead of him when that's done

    i can see that. they have the same power and the s2000 isn't as heavy as the stang. s2000's are pretty neat when realize that they put out 260hp in 2005. that's pretty good for a little 4banger

    260 HP huh? Not too bad but the torque is probably low, right?

    Mine was an 2002 with 240 HP, but a supposed 9000 rpm redline instead of the 8600. The rev limiter didn't kick in until about 9300. The power doesn't hit until about 38mph or so in first gear.

    The lack of torque was one of the reasons why I got rid of it, not to mention the lack of the V8 rumble, and how low the roof was. It was fine for the first couple of months though. Dump the clutch at about 6K to roast the tires!
