It is much faster than it feels though, it's deceptively smooth. Throw some gears in and a tune if youre not concerned with warranty and she will be singing a different tune. Also don't forget to check out, and you can order your limited production certificate from

Welcome aboard!
Thank you nightmare for the info. I would never have known. I am concerned about my previous question tho. Do you think I am ok with my oil life system showing 7%?? I have no idea when you guys change your oil but I used to change mine once it reach 50% in my camaro and that would put me around 4k miles. I always do my own oil change but it's 100F+ right now and is sunday so I'm sure most ford dealers are closed.

I think the main reason for the laggy feel is due to being so used to my 3.91 manual camaro LOL. My new girl definitely goes when she goes tho. It almost feel like a boost or vtec kicking in all of a sudden. I def have to get used to driving an auto again LOL.

Thanks night mare!
