You also need to consider torque, gearing, weight transfer, and if he has 4x4... That thing should be an oversized rocket for what it is.

They pretty cool the way Roush and Ford work together, and that for the price of the kit, they warranty the engine. Almost makes me want to take down my avatar.....Almost. rgardless of track time .Thats gonna be one badass truck, no doubt about it. Too bad GM doesnt want to get in the preformance aftermarket scene like that .
