New Mustang!

Post by Dave »

Just last Thursday picked up a new 2013 Roush Stage 3. Wow - what a difference from my '07'. Got the new 5.0 with the TVS blower, 3.73 L/S rear, bigger brakes and the six speed. 565 hp rating and got 21+ mpg on a road trip this weekend. Some of these things that come right off the show room floor have more HP than dreamed of even 20 years ago.

It was close on which but really liked the handling on the last Roush. Price was about the same, big difference in power. These will run right with the big ones on a road course. These new ones are a big jump ahead of the old ones. If I was one that cared about some things, these are a lot rarer than the Shelbys.
