I'm thinking of buying a 2006 Corvette Z06 or a custom mustang. I heard that the 06 Z06 is going to have 500hp 500ft and weigh 3000lbs. I was going to put my name on the waiting list until I saw the 2004 mustang concept GTR. I saw that Ford was selling that same engine. I thought about buying a 03 or 04 Roush mustang but I would swap that engine to the 5.0 "Cammer" crate. Ford said the "Cammer" engine makes 440hp and 400ft . I thought about the Roush because I like it the side svo exhaust, there suspension ( .96 g) , and the front grill. I would change the hood to the 2000 Cobra R so the engine would fit. I would also like to change Roush's rear spolier to a Saleen 281 spolier. I also saw that the "cammer" crate was 150lbs lighter than the 04 Cobra engine. I would also like to supercharge this with one of Fords superchargers. I think all of this would void Fords warrenty. This Mustang would be a fun project so, please everyone tell me what you think. Thank you for your time.

Buy a Cobra, spend $10,000 having fun building it up into what you want, then go find a 2006 Z06 and smoke his ass! The look on his face will be priceless.

Take the remaining $30,000 you will have saved (not to mention cash saved from gold chains and "hair club for men" dues), and go buy a motorcycle and ski boat! ;)

At least...that's what I'd do. :thumbsup:

Sorry, but this is an SVT site, so my opinion may be a little biased, but you have to admit, the idea has its' merits! :D
