The motor has been stroked to 347 cu. in. As I mentioned, it is supercharged. Flowmaster exhaust with X pipe, 1 5/8 headers, 65mm throttle body. I think the rear end has been modified - runs about 2200-2300 RPM at 60 mph.

I'll keep everyone posted as I find out more info!!!
Hello jmark and congratulations on your purchase!

I am the 4th owner of my Pace Car, and was able to talk to owners 2 & 3... but was not able to locate the correct SVT shifter plaque. I talked to alot of folks... from what I have been told, the plaques were not ready at time of shipment, and the dealerships / first owners were to contact SVT for the plaque. I have also been told that there are upwards of 50% of the plaques still at SVT (or now Ford Racing?)... but after multiple attempts at trying to pry one away from them (even after contacting Hau Thai-Tang indirectly), I was unable to get one of the unclaimed plaques.

Jim at Performance Parts has told me that he had a small amount of unnumbered plaques in the mid '90's that he rapidly sold through.

As posted earlier, I got lucky and bought one from Mustang Parts Specialists (now MPS Auto Salvage due to the Ford legal attack) from totaled car # 14. I will be happy to help you with pictures / measurements / etc. if you want to try to recreate.

You are not alone - I have seen several Pace Cars without them.

Enjoy the car and I hope to meet you someday.
