Gobbs of torque....The right gearing and lots of torque are the 2 things I can think of would have the biggest effect on mpg.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Burn it, see if it floats.... FUNNY STUFF..... As Carroll Shelby says himself however... 4X in the first few minutes.... Well....
see it from his own mouth. You can put any HP you want in the car, "it is still what it is"... Just HIS .02.

No big revelation there. All the pony cars came from humble roots.It's what they
did with them that makes it all the more impressive.

But, it is a stigma that sticks...... it still has the straight axle, it still has "that look" (despite stripes and badges), and just popping in 650+ HP doesn't make it appealing. Don't get me wrong... its a nice car... but it doesn't make ME feel inside what the ZL1 does! The doors close with a hollowness sound and the raindrops on the roof of the GT500 (at least 3 yrs ago).. sounded tinny...and overpowered the radio in a rain! Just the "feel" it gave me.... No arguments on this. Just my take. For $60K i'd take the ZL1, and if not a ZL1, NOT a $60K Mustang! Just doesn't shake MY ROOTS.....even with 650 hp. The ZL1 DOES shake my roots! It just feels and LOOKS more purposeful to me.

Now for that matter, I like the Camaro ZL1 better than a Vette ZR1 too. The Vette is getting rather smooth and exotic looking vs MUSCLE looking. IMHO
