I don't have a new 5.0L but as a Ford guy am glad they brought the displacement back.

I love how the the top of the door curves up at the end, above the door handle. It's sexy.

Re: Favorite thing about your 5.0

Everything, the sexy curves, the smoothness of the steering wheel, the warm heated seats and how they wrap around me...

Re: Favorite thing about your 5.0

I love the "who unleashed the hounds of hell" looks that I get when showing some punk what's up from a red light. The exhaust note from the Roush axlebacks and the pure tire shredding ability of this thing is intoxicating.

The evil and sick sounding exhaust note with my setup!! The way EVERYONE looks when I take off from a light! Most of all I love the blue beast's jaw dropping, tire shredding, neck breaking POWER! The bye-bye on command speed!

I love that my solid rear axel still handles better than a camero independent suspension lol. Throw back gauges are pretty nice too.

Re: Favorite thing about your 5.0

The look of the car-sideview-looks bada$$. Very well dampened interior, comfortable premium seats, 412 horsepower, unmistakable heritage, and the Shaker500 seems to have better sound quality, than my old Shaker1000?

Off topic but I was on the fence about the 10-12 rear and taillights at first but after lowering and wheels I love it. Now I think the rear on the 05-09 looks flat as hell and boring.

I felt the exact same way. I thought they ruined the back when the '10 came out. Now I looks sooooooo much better than the old one.

I love this too. When I cruise through a parking lot and people stop their conversations and turn their heads to stare at that shiny,black,sleek,mean looking piece of artwork growling through the parking lot like the king of the jungle.

I like that they are easy to make money on if you play it smart. The one I owned for short time I ended up flipping for more money than I paid for it.

I LOVE the retro heritage. The seductive bulge at the rear of the front doors transitioning into the rear fender. The outside lip of the front fenders reminds me of a 67. The gauge pods. The whole front end. 5.0 on the fender where it says "I'm baaaack'. The steering wheel with a running pony, that says freedom and spirit. Oh, and finally, in STOCK form, turning off traction control and while doing 25 in second gear punching it, smoking the tires. The whole car is freaking awesome!! Love it!!
