With our Coyote engines, you can very easily tune a lope by dialing in the TiVCT to close in the LSA and increase valve overlap.

The 2009 and earlier Mustangs did not have TiVCT so they relied on...

The shortest my P Zeros have lases is as...

That would be a great move, just like how GM brought the 5th Gen ZL1 which is an incorporation of the Caddy CTS-V's LSA engine into the Zeta chassis.
Well, in this case, it would be kind of a...

Interesting. I'm surprised that Steeda does not make a single CAI kit that can be adapted for Manual or AT use by the simple addition/omission of the necessary hose.

Wow, I never even heard of any rumors to take the S550 and expand it into the Lincoln badge. Does FoMoCo plan on actually doing this? I'm intrigued; that's for sure.

Interesting concept of the...
