    Blaizon is correct and it's also a matter of preference and use. The 6spd manuals have had some issues but I prefer a stick, the auto trans is just as fast. For a high speed run car I would run the centri blower setup with a 6spd. For a more drag race and gigs car I would go Roots blower and auto trans. That $#@! will launch very hard on DR's for sure.

    @Sledgehammer you really messed me up since that talk we had about the '13 GT500, I've been considering trading in my 335 for one or a coyote possibly...

    I called Blaizon after I got a chance from a Ford Rep to ride and drive in a Pre Production 13 GT500 recently. I explained that its just friggin fast, all the time and any speed in any gear. Its just plain old silly and I was in love with it.

    I want one but I can't turn my back on GermanBoost.

    Wish I could handle updating a performance forum for all makes by myself.

    Certain people, such as myself, could help run other sections. Really all is left is AsianBoost, AmericaFuckYeahBoost and ALL the sub-forums for the brands..... you know, just a little extra.

    True, and I see some other guys who already put in a lot of work so it could be done. I need to see some good front page style articles from people though that only require me clicking "promote" and no additional work on my part.

    It would require you monitoring your respective section closely. As in, when a tuner does something on whatever section is yours (like American cars) we need to know ASAP.

    I've been a mod on sites before, they were both smaller sites. Nothing quite this busy, I can't imagine the effort it requires. But you seem to do get it done bro!!! American Boost is my suggestion then the GT500, ZL1, GT500, Cobra, SRT4 and various other rides could have a place. In all honesty if you got into a 2013 GT500 and did the basic mods. Pulley, Intake, Tune and a CB Exhuast you'd be over 700rwhp on pump gas. Add in some custom 20's and Coilovers and it will have not cost more than $70k-ish and thats more wheels/tires than anything else.

    stock 650hp and 200mph top end with a warranty... For under $65k, other than that nothing special at all.

    I could do it if I didn't have to deal with this stupid thing called real life.

    I want to do a domestic site, definitely. Who knows, maybe we will eventually get there. I need to fill out the German side first before thinking of expanding any further.

    Thats before the dealer price-gougingClick here to enlarge
    I doubt ANY Ford dealer will be selling them for MSRP at least for the 1st 6months or so. Its a shame because I have a relative who gets the Ford Family Discount Plan too....previously Ford would not honor the discount on any SVT vehicles but JRcart mentioned to me that they are now allowing it,so maybe when I move out to So.Cal I'll look into getting one

    They are allowing the pricing on the GT500 and yes there will be some uh hmm market price adjustments. But I suspect as usual it will be short lived and those willing to wait several months will get them at sticker or under in the following year.

    Definitely, that is how it always is.
