but you have to remember....... Fords Factory times are a load of s**t! they run their cars with no interior, 1 seat. anything they can take out of the car they will. its a load of crap and i wouldnt even bother trying to compare against factory times


*achoo*

s**t. ford factory times are conservative as f**k. at one point they claimed a high 15 for a factory EL 5 speed xr6.

i was quoting times from a motoring mag (can't remember if it was wheels or motor) and they run theirs 2 up with half tank of juice (so they claim). nothing is removed. cars are as you and i would drive them. quite often they are heavier due to the factory optioning up the test vehicle so that it might fare better in the comparo.

15.4 sec @ 157kmh? Well first I'll assume it was with 115 *RWKW* as opposed to RWHP. I ran 15.8@85mph with 98rwkw, so a 15.4 might be possible, but the MPH (97) is waaaaay to high for even 115rwkw instead of 115rwhp...
