Why do people always bring up money when talking Mustang/Ford VS LTX/LSX? Who in the **** cares if you can make an LSX just as fast for $1000 less. If $1000 makes or breaks your finances or budget you dont need to be modding a car. I would suggest fixing priorities in your life at that point. And if everybody bought and modded cars based upon what squeezed the most HP out of every dollar we would all have the same boring *** car.
