    Are you talking about a 1st gen or a 2nd gen?
    I have owned a 2nd gen for more than a year and I love the truck. Its a bad ass vehicle.

    the 00/99 are different from the 2001-2003. they have a 80mm MAF, iron driveshaft, smaller intercooler and a couple of other things to make them slower. But there has also been suspicion that they have stronger rods than the 01-03. but for the most part, you can make a 00 as fast as a 01-03. Depends on what mods you go with. and with the tuners, anyone is as good as the next. the top dogs are JDM, PSP and a few more. But over all, I have been very happy with my Lightning.

    Awesome truck, I'd buy one but I'd end up sinking too much of my mustang's mod money into the truck :p

    Lets not forget the older ones stripping the spark plugs out of the heads :eek2: I believe the 99/00 were the years that did that.

    I'm not much for Fords, but I think the Lightning is bad ass
