a later +300hp tune? Not on the stock turbo they wont...well, maybe/barely to the crank So itll prob be a $5-6k stage one upgrade with a compressor swap, fuel pump upgr, injectors or something... Why noy offer this from the start? And included in the $15k final price?

My guess is ford will def give the the ecu codes so theyll prob have better control over it than anyother tune company but still you can only do so much

You think they have gone out and done their own tune, when they can call up SCT and buy one and load it. They are saying 300 crank hp not wheel so that been done. 40mpg sure maybe if you drive it 55 on the highway, but I would like to see that. I get better gas millage when Iím taking the back roads to the highway the MPG goes down on the highway for me. But Iím also not going 55. I have gotten 40mpg but only over 30 miles so I think they may be a bit off.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

I didn't even get 40mpg in my Titanium, I surely don't expect to see it with the ST. Down a long, steep hill with a tailwind, maybe.

40 to 45mph in 6th it gets me around 40mpg in the st, but that's not normal driving

the '32 Ford had louvers before that...


And I'm sure others as well. I can do this all day, you still haven't posted where your 50+ hp figure came from...

Pretty interesting that Shelby doesn't mention any numbers above the 252hp, only a "Shelby Performance Tune(coming soon)".

Asides from the hood my black st3 looks better. Although I might like to see that cf battery box and fuse box be sold seperately.
