The 5.0 is back

2011 Ford Mustang GT 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 6M)
I ordered this car months ago, 6spd coupe, Brembo Brakes, 3.73's. It was just going to be a fun commuter car and it has not disappointed. The engine pulls very strongly, especially in the upper rev ranges yet is docile in daily driving and it was TOO quiet when I bought it. I have since changed the exhaust. The ride is firm, but not brutal but handles like its on rails. I got a basic deluxe package so the interior is no frills. Don't even have a pwr driver seat. The benefit to not having the "goodies" is a light weight. At a truck weigh station it weighed 3480 lb with a quarter tank of gas. The new steering system feels great too.
The Engine DUH! Finally a 6 spd and the sound now! This is now a true Camaro competitor.
Sync should be an option across the board. On a 30k vehicle, it's inexcusable not to have it. They say its because the steering wheels are different on the premium, but they should find another way.
