I had my wife drive us to work this morning. I went to the Saliva concert last night and was tired as hell and didn't feel like driving. We were behind a mustang that had louvers in the windows and a body kit and loud ass exhaust. I told her to get closer to it so I could see what it was. When we got up behind it I saw a 427 on the silver cap on the back where it normally says GT and STAGE above that. It scared the crap out of me. I thought it had a 427 c.i.d. engine in it.
He got over and let my wife get up beside him then he took off. It had a racing stripe going down the front fender. I didn't say a word, was gonna leave it up to her if she wanted to have a go at him or not, sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't. Apparently, she wasn't in the mood to play because when he took off she got over in the slow lane and held her speed. Once the stang reallized we didn't want to play he slowed back down and let us get back up behind him. He got off on an exit several miles before ours and it gnawed away at me not knowing if we could've taken it or not.
I get to work and look it up online only to find out that the 427 is just another Rousch kit and the 427 was the HP number, not the c.i.d. It's a 3 valve, 4.6 litre engine with a supercharger sitting on top rated at 427 HP, 391 lbs.-ft trq. I never did hear the supercharger whine when he stabbed it. With my setup at 455 rwhp (545ish at crank with auto 4 speed) I think my wife would've hurt his feelings or at least put up one HELL of a good fight. Hopefully we see that guy again...
