Wish list for 2010 mustang

  1. I have been a Ford/Mustang enthusiast my whole life, but there are a couple things that drive me crazy about the mustang and when they redesigned the 2005 I think it was missing some key elements. For 2010 they need these corrected....

    1.) Put a 6sp manual in the GT models, please for the love of god, camaros and firebirds had them in 93, is Ford seriously 2 decades behind?

    2.) Come out with the 5.0 and make it have a least 375, but hope for 400hp. What I hear about this motor it is very likely. The 05 only had 300hp which is still less than the ls1 motors from 5 yrs previous. Keep the 6.2 for trucks, too heavy and designed as a truck motor.

    3.) Keep the weight around the current weight (3500-3600) and don't make it weight 3900 or 4100 lbs like the camaro and challenger, these are sports cars not 4 door sedans.
  2. I remember a truck engine getting put into another American muscle car. It seems to have worked out ok. So that might not be a bad idea.
