I am really hoping once it’s broke in I will feel the power. I am not 100% sure on the break-in period. It says 100 city miles or 1000 highway miles, but that makes no sense to me. I would think more like 500 city miles maybe?
I really am curious what you mean by this. The Coyote has a ton of high rpm horsepower. Its not going to feel like a torque monster down low. But it should feel very quick, it will be MUCH quicker stock for stock than you 79 400 TA.

I know, but back then, it was one of the fastest cars and it would burn rubber in all 4 gears.
I just wish I knew for sure when I can really get it up and run it, and not have to worry about going over 4000 RPMs

No, they said not too, but I have read so many different miles, I’m not quite sure when it’s ok to go over. The one said 1000 miles, which will be a few mos on down the road for that, then the one said 100 in town driving which I Almost have. Guess I need to do more research

i will let you know In A few months. I only drive it once in awhile. It’s showing I am not even getting 13 miles to a gallon🤦🏻‍♀️

Hey, I like you a lot (and your naughty daughter too), but please don't tell me you're comparing the screaming chicken to a DH. Yes, it was cool to be seen in one, especially after Smokey and the Bandit, and the 6.6L V8 equipped version was fast compared to most other AMERICAN sports cars. A Porsche 911 or even a Corvette, however, would quickly suck its headlights out.

Advertised specs (6.6L): 220HP, 7.6 sec 0-60, 15.9 sec 1/4-mile, and 120MPH top speed.

For comparison, in 1979 my dream car was a Ford powered Detomaso Pantera: (5.7L) 286HP, 5.3 sec 0-60, 13.8 sec 1/4-mile.

Hey, a guy can dream. In 1979 my ride was, sadly, a '76 Ford Granada. Guess what? It too would chirp tire with every upshift. Only one tire though, and only 3 speeds.

I'd say the DH will do much better in the grins department than both of them.

Dark Horse put up just about the same numbers as a Shelby gt500, and I don't think anyone expected that.

Just 0-60 in this test. You don't believe a DH is going to keep up with a GT500 do you? The GT500 ran a 11.3@131mph vs a 12.1 @115mph.

I'm still trying to figure out how Motor Trend got such horrible 0-60 times for the GT500 as well when everyone else was in the low 3s ... as I mentioned ....the GT500 will put a hurting on my car too so nothing against the DH

3.7 seconds 0-60 is actually damn near what other places got as well for the gt500. The number is not horrible at all its actually great. Think about this, for you to get 3.7 in a stock gt500 with its original tires is not easy at all. Matter of fact, 3.7 is probably the one of best real life number you will get on a gt500. Most of the time it is cooking its tires and spinning. If you get 3.3 or 3.4 seconds, you had to cook the tires to get them to grip or put a different set of tires on the car that could grip. Also you had to get the track extra sticky to get a great launch to get those numbers. You have to hit everything perfectly to get that car or any of the RWD supercharger car into the low 3's. Even the vett struggles to get that with cooking the tires or changing up the tire.

Well I have to hand it to the PP DH, those are good numbers. But that has got to be all tire. As far as I know (does someone else?) the DH didn't gain any special traction control, and it weighs only a few lbs off a CFTP GT500 so my assumption is that it's all down to the R-compound tire.

Would like to see the comparison between the two with the same tires just to know how much difference that makes. I may have to try the RS once they make it in a 20. It looks like a possible improvement in initial grip, and longevity over the Cup 2 and Trofeo R. Maybe a straight up Cup 2 R competitor which has less longevity but the initial bite is nuts. A bit of a “hero lap” tire that over time becomes much more like a PS4 or something.

Think heat cycles, kinda along the lines of pottery and a kiln.

No, we had a 403 Oldsmobile first, automatic. Bought it brand new.
Then we got a 1979 Pontiac Trans AM (used)with a 400 CI V8 and a 4-speed manual - it had air conditioning, power steering, and TTops. That sucker was fast

My 79 Pontiac 400 Turbo 400 Firebird ran about 12.3-12.7 no problem all day long. The Olds 403 was a very excellent built engine but it was not for a performance car.
