Really good, IMO. In fact I'm giving away the batch to the people in my dept. It's still a little too much for me at this stage to eat. I powered down a small bowl last night. If I had done it in a crock-pot the meat would have been more... mushy I guess that would have allowed me to eat more of it.



Anyone driving this weekend ?? Looks like nice weather finally came back.

I was looking at a road going up to Mt Baldy and back down, looks like fun. Maybe do a reconnaissance lap this weekend ?? Anyone in ?

I'd be interested, but have to check and clear my schedule.

Yeeeeeeeeeez! Why are you going to buy me a new one? That car runs like a clock the temptation is there to buy something new. But I love the fact that I don't have a car payment except for the Stang.

People like us would love the forged motor and but then complain that the car costs too much. We're spoiled brats. Ford is doing pretty good with making what we want but we find reasons to complain anyway. IMO

Besides, Who'd want a car you didn't need to mod ?

Typical consumer, always finding something to complain about

Correct me if I'm wrong but the 'new edge' S197's do not weight that much more than us and the block is not even heavier than the 3V's. The Shelby is a pig because of the fugly body kit and big azz rims.

IMO, this is going to be a killer NA set-up but a b*tch to have some fun with FI. Long tubes, 4.56's and a tune

Well FORD markets it as a performance car/motor, they gave it a forged crank and wimpy rods & pistons. I would of had it the other way around, when was the last time you heard a crank breaking! That's like building a house on an adobe foundation vs concrete. They can do better. Plus it only money!

Fly:

BASE CURB WEIGHT (POUNDS) 2011
Manual transmission 3,875 (est.) 4,000 (est.)
Automatic transmission 4,000 (est.) 4,000 (est.)

(2010 GT-500):
Curb weight, mfr. claim (lbs.)3,924

(2009 Mustang GT)
Weight lb (kg):3614

Truth be told, the performance sector (like us here, and the uber-performance guys like over at S197F) are the minorities in their overall demographics; doesn't the V6 outsell the GT like 3-1 or something?

Companies like Livernois and the like are actually relieved Ford didn't go all out forged.

Let's put it this way... If I ever bought a ZR1, I would leave it stock. If I do any mods at all, it would be limited to tinting the windows and maybe a cat-back exhaust (even that's iffy).

But the buzz on the net is saying wait til Apple drops the price which will be within 6 months, just like what they did on the iPhone.

I'm pretty sure Jed's Highlander will outlive your Exploder.

Come to think of it, when was the last time a Mustang GT came with all forged internals?
