I just don't "get" why folks want to lose 2-3 mpg, and deal with drivability issues for a lopey-tune.
I admit that there's nothing like the sound of a lopey cam.
But, at best, the "new" 5.0 sounds NOTHING like my 'old school daze' with me and my buddies running headers, intakes, heads, cams and spending MANY thousands of $$$$ just to get into the 13's! LOL!
It doesn't even 'sound' as good as the modular 4.6's IMO, to say nothing of my push-rod '93 5.0.
Although I LOVE my new coyote 5.0, there's almost nothing you can do to it (other than GT500 axle-backs) that will give it that "sound" IMO.
