Bringing back the 5.0 redesigned was a great idea. The car is nothing short of impressive!

Careful, this 2011 is finally a true '5.0' no more 4.9L like my '91 Mustang LX "5.0" was. It still went like stink for what it was though. Glad to see Ford kept the weight in check with the newer Mustang as well. However, for the sake of $10K in price premium over the 300+hp V6 model, the GT will be a hard sell for not so much loss in performance. Still, V8 would still be a good buy when considering other V8s such as the Camaro SS, which is more expensive than the GT. Decisions...

'11 Ram Quad Cab 4x4 SXT 5.7L HEMI (stock); 48,500m
'06 Pontiac G6 GT 3.5L 220hp; 64,000m
'12 Chrysler 200 Limited 3.6L 283hp; 28,000m
'99 Taurus 3.0L 2V Vulcan 145hp; 154,300m - Traded
Amsoil in all vehicles!

Indeed! It is quite impressive that even the V6 will put out performance like that of the V8 they were using prior. The far less bloated Mustang FTW! Check out the compression ratio on that engine too!
