If the deceleration is significant (particularly after tapping the brakes while at speed) and long enough, the fuel does get shut off, and then returns at some point when the rpm and road speed fall...

If this is an automatic, is it even possible to spin the tires that far out in 2nd? It's not like there is a shift point at or near 60 mph on the 5-spd, right?

I'm not saying it can't happen. I'm...

Is this the Mustang snap-oversteer behavior or something else? I'm just curious if you could elaborate further on this, from your experiences on the Mustang side. Since you had a Cobra, I'm not sure...

I would say it is complementary to the pleasing exterior appearance of the car. People are "hoping" to see the full package, when they see the car. The engine is not part of the beauty of the car,...

No, I suppose it isn't beyond the realm of human capability. It just isn't going to happen by slapping on a random muffler. None of that Mars exploration/smashed atom technology went into the exhaust...

I don't recall anyone saying there is something wrong or lacking with SXT owners.

That's the thing...v8 sound is more than low end rumble, and that is probably how some are lead to believe that it can be easily mimicked on a v6.

You put a louder exhaust on the Hemi models to...
