My local ford dealer let me drive a 07 Stage 3 Roush. They just took my license.. who would let two 18 yr old kids (at the time) go out for a joyride with out the salesman? Though i did not beat the crap out of it, i didnt feel like paying out the azz for it when i returned.

Even when i got my GT, before any paperwork- he tossed me the keys and i went alone.. I guess he figured, mom n dad where here with him.

They are very nice, but I'm slightly prejudice. For a real treat they need to be taken to a road course, which is what they were made for. But in lieu of that, they'll still give you a high pucker factor.

Finally had mine dyno'd to see what its numbers are stock, 392rwhp, 350tq with 5.94 boost. Thats around 460 at the crank, give or take a few. With a smaller SC pulley, CAI and professional dyno tune, it could be close to 500 > 425 at the wheels.

Did I already say these car are nice!!!!

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE
