And if u do nitrous right with good airflow/inyectors/comp.mod so u can regulate everything i got more than 400+ to the wheels on an almost stock (not forged) 3.0 Vulcan. But theses cheap custom tricks i did not know so thanx agai!!!!

If the EcoBoost can walk you 2 to 3 car lengths, then so can a lot of other vehicles
