I'll pass. I'll take the twin screw blown 5.4L DOHC any day over the
5.0L Cammer. Plus for $125k I can get two GT500's with change to spare.

This one is a full prepped race car. I'm talking about a regular
street car to slide in under the Cobra in price. A low $30K,
naturally-aspirated, 400 hp/400 ft-tq, 5.0 powered, niche model. A
modern Boss 302 if you will.

I think the Cammer engine will see the light of day in a future Mustang.
Ford has the specialty Mustangs down to a fine art. They wait until
the excitement fades a little then come out with a Boss 5.0L, or some
other variation, to get us all worked up into a lather again. IMO, it's
good strategy on their part. It kept us buying old Fox body Mustangs
for 25 years. ;)

Why not build one yourself? That's waht this hobby is all about... Getting a
car and making it just how you like it, be it restored to original
condition, a modern Fox or SN95 daily driver, an all-out race car, or
anything in between.

Why not just pick one up right now and stuff it in the Mustang of
your choice?

At that price I'll have to stick it into a Yugo. :)

I've gone the route of building up a Mustang and I'll probably never do
it again. The '03-'04 Cobras made me see the light. A few tweaks and
you're at 500 rwhp with all the creature comforts of a new car and great
reliability.

I think a Chrysler crate Hemi (old style) with about 600hp is around
the same price.

How can they produce it if the regular GT costs this much?
