    Turbo Mustang sounds interesting, but I don't need all that package stuff. I'll pay $8k and take the turbo, exhaust and brakes, then get the rest elsewhere(suspension by Griggs or Maximum Motorsport :bowdown:). :mamoru:

    If you want to pull a trailer of mules, you can haul ass while you haul ass.

    Well hot damn.

    A performance civilian truck w/ tow capacity again. Dunno about the 4 doors though.

    Turbo setup? Could be awesome.

    serious question is serious. I tend to believe a "functioning hood scoop" would feed an intercooler or some other intake like a subaru does.

    [​IMG]

    see how the stock intercooler is fed directly from the hoodscoop.

    If they are infering that the hoodscoop flow helps cool the motor that is stupid. seriously, am i missing something here?

    "functional" meaning not a blocked-off opening. i'm sure keeping underhood temps down and cooling air onto the neatsink fins of the blower would be helpful in some immeasurable way.
