They are the MPS4S(es) {- wouldn't that be the plural form?} which is great, glad Ford went with Michelin for the update.

Not too shabby, we'll probably see bigger numbers as people start messing with that 4.5. I know a guy that made 1k on a 2.9 with his GT500 but it was hard on the blower and grenaded it.
