Hey, just joined the site, and I've had my SVTF for a week and a half now. Holy magoley, one of the most fun cars I've ever driven...anyways...
One of my best friends and I just raced on some old back roads...SVTF Vs. V6 Stang. I passed him a car length in 1st, another in 2nd, and then slowed down because of the STOP sign...
He's got aftermarket Exhaust, and CAI...I feel all special and warm on the inside now! Wheee!!![:D]

What year is it, and is it an auto or stick? I used to have a ;00 v6 5-speed. It's a hell of a lot faster than the auto. Of course, it was a lot faster after I put a vortech on it! Anyways, nice kill. Good to embarrass the wannabee's

Yeah, it's an '04 V6 standard...I was sorta surprised that I took him out! Ford did a wonder with the SVTF...why did they get rid of it again? ':o)

^^agreed. my wife has an 03, Ive been trying to get her to race me but shes scared!

Nah, you don't need a turbo in this car to have fun. Once I install the few mods I want, it'll be just peachy! My friend with the Stang is gonna hear it at work today... he works with me, and I've already told everyone how his 6 got beat by a 4 banger! [;)]

lol...i raced a V6 Auto stang mid 90's i think and i beat the crap out of him several times. Some from a stop and others from a roll. Let's just say he was none to happy to lose to a Focus. And for some of you people that say a Sedan can't beat a Mustang, I have the same engine in the ZX's. Yes they do make zetec's in Sedans.
