    Trishield would never post this Ford nonsense so I'm not going to bother saying that you aren't him.

    Clearly, the 395 rwhp figure we measured is of particular interest since it implies one of two things -- either Ford is being conservative with its 412-hp flywheel rating, or the preproduction example we tested is unusually healthy.

    Sorry, I don't consider preproduction fleet cars (that the manufactuer can sex up a little for reviewers) representative of what actual owners who dyno them will see.

    like 100 - 200 pounds

    (and the SS isn't a five year old design under the skin with an ox cart axle out back that the manufactuer wants big money for)

    Very true. At the same time there were plenty of '03-'04 Cobras that were dynoing at around or slightly higher then 400HP bone stock. Suppose part of that was the added gas guzzler tax when you hit 400HP.

    That is pretty sweet. As of lately I'd rather have a Ford. Sorry kids, not buying another new GM vehicle until the government gets out of their affairs.

    Other boards I frequent say that dyno run was in 4th gear, which is not 1:1.

    So, tell us what the 1:1 gear is then? Typically 4th IS the 1:1 gear.

    Seriously guys this is a sweet motor. The 4.6L 32v was pretty sweet... now just more displacement, better intake manifold, yada yada.
