No Mustangs at the moment.
Looks like a true sleeper. I'll bet the sound of the exhaust gives it away, though. Nice looking car!

How's that power feel?;)

Can be a bit scary. All through 2nd. gear it struggles for traction. I'm running a fairly tall gear at 3.15:1. If you punch it and downshift into 2nd. at 50 or 60 mph it gets loose on you. If you're going say 15 or 20 mph and nail it in drive it just goes 1 2 3 through the gears smoking the tires for as long as you dare to hold the pedal down. I usually back out after a couple hundred feet as it gets fast and starts to go's sideways.
