    Remember when we were always "trashing" Ford for using the engine they did in the Marauder? Perfect case in point of how they totally missed the mark on the components chosen. That particular engine is TERRIBLE with a normal OEM auto trans. It has NO BALLS down low so the car can't come out of the hole without bogging it's ass off. That same car with a stick would probably be quicker. Plenty of power up high in the rev-range and a stick would be the "optimal" trans for that engine, in that car. The only problem them, might be tire size but since the wheel wells have plenty of room for bigger rubber, even that wouldn't be a problem.
    Thank you very much for proving my point!!

    They put an engine from a lighter car into a heavier car. It has nothing to do with the transmission. It's that it's a heavier car!! If what you are saying was true, then the automatic Mustang would also be a dog.

    Unbeleivable. You're a Northeastern liberal, aren't you?

    Yea, you're right. It's all about the transmission. The transmission is the only thing the auto maker ever thinks about. They never ever consider the weight of the vehicle. Because that would be too much physics to contemplate. They just design all their engines to be used in a lighter weight manual transmission vehicle and hope they work in other applications.

    I'm clueless? You should be asking Regis for a lifeline!

    nah... you haven't heard from me anymore because I was tired of hearing (reading) you girls bitch and moan... Can't we just agree to disagree and freakin move on???

    Everything on this list turns into a pissing contest and it has me coming over here less and less. I have better things to do than read this junk.

    No times yet. Broke a rocker arm stud on Friday. That sucked.

    Want me to start another thread about that so you can compare notes on how GM should have used better materials for the pressed in stud, or should have used the screw in rockers instead on the iron head LT1's....??? No thanks

    I'm done pissing in the wind. I'm sorry for my contributions of turning your thread into a dead end debate.
