I loves me a good V8. Except the 5.0 in this 'Stang isn't very good; it's awesome. And not just because of the intoxicating music coming from the intake and exhaust.

No, the real reason you want to keep whacking open the throttle is because of what happens when you whack open the throttle: Smooth, luscious, throbbing power. Everywhere on the tach. Regardless of gear.

Yep, the 5.0 is back. And the people rejoiced.
