I strongly doubt that ford will back down from the HP claims that have come out recently. They just wont advertise that their cars have the equivelent or superior power compared to the opposition.

Geoff knows the people want power, and that power sells, its just delivering it in a safe manner that his on about.

With equal power Ford will kick Holden's butt anyway, I just hope that the car looks good to the eye and sounds great to the ear.

Big figures on paper doesn't mean jack, and i know Ford will equal if not surpass holden in the HP's game. Just take the T3 with 250kw, paper says there down 5kw compared to clubbie but reality is alittle different. :s5 :s5

Hopefully all the reports are correct,and ford give the public what they want,it is rumoured holden are designing a 5.3 or 5.4 quad cam ,vvt engine,so hopefully ford can get these motors to the public and get the runs on the board.
