personally, it'* looks are the only things I dislike about this engine, I would like to see engines look the way they used to, but I know they probably never will again

Yes, I'd rather they wouldn't hide all the mechanicals.

Ford doesn't with the GT500. It'* all exposed in full glory.

The first thing I would do with this is rip off the black plastic.

I do like the Blue colour though for the valve covers.

Bahhhh.....from the sound of it, it will be another +$100 K car that will also carry a $25 K dealer mark up for exclusivity.

Think I'll just dump another $10 K into my Bonne and have a 5 passenger luxury car that can at least keep that Vettes taillights in view for a little while.

.......OK Bill, lets talk again about that $200 intercooler design.....

.....and maybe I might even stoop to the "Dirtyhead" NO2 cheat to make up the extra 100 hp...
Hope he doesn't hear that....
