My Cobra will walk all over them now. In stock form. With minor
modifications it gives Vipers the willies. No 302 here, no 30 year old
design. The Modular 4.6 DOHC is a dream of an engine. Imagine one of these
engines in a world class chassis. 400 HP is easy naturally aspirated, and
turbo or blower can push them into the 600 to 700 range.
So yes, quit picking on the Mustangs unless you want to race mine?

What about lightly tweeking the 302 to 300+ HP?
