I was at the Goodguys show on Saturday and I didn't see any drag pack car. Of course I was on my way to the autocross track and wasn't looking for one either. Hmmmm, makes me wonder.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting.."holy crap.... what a ride!"

Question: Did they underate this engine on purpose due to it's intended usage in Stock? Or did they use a different 5.4L DOHC than in my GT500? Could it have the 5.4L Lightning engine?

Ford officially rates the GT500 @ 500 hp, but most are a little more. From what I have read the vast majority of them will put 440 or so to the rear wheels on a chassis dyno, which indicates around 515 @ the crank. Mine's not been dynoed yet simply due to the lack of one in immediate area.

Just curious

It would be sweet if they used the 5.4 out of the GT. I think they rate more like 600-660hp.
