Hear, hear. Me too. Must be the 5.0.

In a similar vein, you won't break the old 4.6 in the bone stock 03-04 Mach 1 by buzzing it to 6800 or 7000, but neither will the timeslips get any better after 6000 or 6200 as a drag shift point. Of course, it has regular constant cam timing, but once you hit a HP peak determined by either head/intake flow or cam design, you truly have reached the point of diminishing returns, also known in system engineering as "you're fooling yourself."
