Nice! Don't think I'd trade a 5.0 for one but to each their own. And is it just me or is that thing sitting too high? Think it needs to be lowered!

That's a big debate. With a blower you can do the same #s on a 5.0

And I know.....forged internals but it's also nose heavy.

Re: new member to the gt500 club

The GT500 is not collectible. Not trying to be a Debbie downer,your car is awesome and it was a good choice but alot of people can slap a blower on a 5.0 a have just as much power. Still,3k miles is great if you are gonna buy used...you pretty much have a brand spanking new GT500!

Still a 5.0 is no gt500. I'd rather have the gt500 even if it was just as fast because it's a Shelby.

Nice car, and yea the gt500 has more potential definately, like you said just boost up the psi, add some bolt ons and ure well over 600hp easy. And yea it is a Shelby compared to a 5.0

Lol i just think its a better looking better sounding car. And you will turn WAY more heads in a gt500 than a 5.0 it's a little less common too. I probable see 1 gt500 for every 30 5.0's I see on the road.

All I did was slap a pulley on my 13 and I have 686hp and 707trq AT THE WHEELS...didn't know it was that easy on a 5.0 or I would've saved some money, lol. Seriously though, two different animals and I do love my adjustable shocks, steering, track pack and assorted other goodies you just don't get with a 5.0.
