Quite a few, ever driven a Nova with a 454 LS6?

Big engine / big power is a ton of fun, in a straight line. Again, V8 with a solid axle for the drag racers, V6 with a solid axle for the secretaries, IRS with the turbo 4 for the tuner crowd and IRS V8 for the Cobra / Boss track guys.

Everything is already on the shelf and it can only expand sales.
Agreed, the probe/stang was also going to be Fwd, and it was coming out right after the beloved fox body (87-93). Pound for pound the fox body was one of the best cheap HP car avail (just like the current 5.0)


I also think Ford can do the above options as well...
The 5.0, the V6, and a turbo-4(new svo anyone?)
