So not only did you have less power but you had more weight!

Kevin D My PZEV has diffrent gear ratios than the 2.0. I'm trying to find a way to switch 3-5th in mine, yet no trans shop wants to take on the challenge. This would bring the stock transmission closer to a close ratio trans..a true 5 speed.... than fords mentality of the four speed with over drive.

russmistro oh he has as ATX. guess its a bit different?

russmistro ^^idk about his ST but MY 2nd gear only goes to 58mph, 3rd to 85mph..

Kevin D Good man.. Driving is all about consistency and smoothness, like a river. Speed is a byproduct. 1st. gear till 28 mph, second to 62mph, third to 90mph and fourth till you hit the speedlimiter. Once you can do that 100% then its time to upgrade!!

lol, man, I honestly don't know how to take this. I can tell you I am way better than I was when I got the car. I've had a few late nights on the interstate by myself just stopping, running, over and over. I'll get there eventually. Wish I had money for a new clutch btw.
