Maybe you won't think so when you hear the rest of the story:

The '12 car was bought new and the factory tune was a torqueless mess. I tuned the car, thus and was happy. Then the MT82 imploded with any provocation whatsoever and I fought Ford for a month to get it rebuilt. It was fine after that, if a bit rattlier than before. The rear was good, other than the ubiquitous 3.73 whine.

The car held up fine subsequent to all of this as I banged gears on slicks at the track for two years with it.

I then got greedy, supercharged it, wrapped it around a tree and rolled it. Fortunately, I self-extricated and got only a couple busted ribs out of the a newfound respect for what 600 horse can do.

Now I have the '14. It's an auto, which I am liking a lot. Procal didn't go on this one bc FRPP wanted $250 for an SD card to tune this one. No thanks. I bought an X4 from VMP and I've subsequently put a 100 shot of N20 on there, with a BBR tune, for when I go back to the track.
