Word of Caution:

Use some caution when re-learning this car. Going from a 4.6 to a 5.0 i found the following.

1) Rear end gets lose way easier and faster.
2) The at speed freeway passing thing......... the 4.6 is not even in the same league as the 5.0. Be careful, if you drive it like you drove the 4.6 you are liable to find yourself in the neighborhood of 110 or greater thinking youd be up to around 85mph. (never had i thought it was possible to BARK the tires going into 5th at around 80 with 3.31s till i had this car)....if im off on those numbers a bit dont flame me, it was a year ago now but i think thats about right.
