Have yall ever wondered ??????

I have heard before ( I dont know if its true ) that Gm , Ford and Dodge all as american automakers have an idea or atleast a clue on what each other have/put in there vehicles.

In recent years Gm has proven to be one of the Top if not "THE TOP" performance automaker when it has come down to its Camaro and it's Corvette.

In a few weeks or maybe even less Mustang will release there new car and possibly give some information on there New powerplant that is supposed to be pushing 400hp and possibly more.
Do yall think Gm will stand behind its history and Top mustang when it comes to Hp ?

Weight is going to play a factor from what I have read however I hope thats not the case and that Gm stands tall once again. I know with mpg and etc its hard to pump out those high reving hp motors that we like. Something has stuck in my head since 2003 I remember a car and driver where Ford put there Charged Stang up against our Last Generation Camaro ( the last meeting and comparrison ) And that irked the hell out of me because out of all the times we went up against Ford and there Stang they had to put an all motor Camaro up against a Charged Stang.....couldnt they have used there Gt like they have in the past ? Noooooooo I know we have chosen to take a different route as in using natrual aspurated motors but when it came down to showing how they can beat us IMO it was the chicken way out. I cant find the mag off hand but the last line said something about Camaro being dead and long live a legend !!!!!!!!!!

There has been so much said that Gm is late out of the gate with our Camaro and what if GM is behind in performance.....nothing more do I want but GM to prove something with this car.

It just makes me wonder......how will our car rank to the mustang ?

I guess we will have to wait a few more weeks for details

I haven't had the pleasure of IRS either, even the oldsmobile had a live rear axle.
The s-10's ride can **** near knock out tooth fillings though. :/

No kidding....maybe thats why they are getting more airbagged suspensions with larger diameter wheels and tires as we speak lol IMO they look better that way as well.

IRS for a daily driven 'hotrod' is the best! With the right halfshafts, it's an unbeatable package for comfort and performance.
