Re: Just a little curious......
Personally I find the 4.6 2v extremely lacking in power, even with the PI heads.. However, I know with boost these motors wake up big time, and the 4vs are great..
Then again I'm spoiled by a 12 second buick and my previous 11 second hatch 5.0..
I was a ford tech and have driven plenty of both, the 99+ is hands down more powerful than the 96-98 - BUT you will probably find that the 99-04 is lacking after a while.. It's Torque band is too peaky and not quite enough..
Handling/chassis wise, I'm not sure what they've changed but my car feels like a tank on rails running down the road (Solid but will go where you need it to)
