The problem with Ford, imho, is that they waited way to long to introduce a decent FI car in the compact market. How much money would they have made if one out of every three SRT-4's had been this ST?

Now, we're past 250hp. Ford has a bit of catch up to do. They're still 5 years behind. And I like the ST, it just isn't the car for me.
I totalley agree w/ you as far as Ford is behind ^^^^ For some reason Ford has some great concepts & idea's & it takes them along time to hit production. Chryler for years seems to come out w/ products pretty quickly. Now that Chrysler & Fiat are one lets see what happens.
