Nice updates on the car.

Makes my 2011 feel outdated already. I expect the 2015 will be a real advancement if the '13 has this many new features.

Really digging the new virtual gauge package with A/F and boost/vaccuum. I wonder if Ford includes the boost/vaccuum featured gauge in the regular N/A GT's and Bosses?

I wonder what the curb wieght of the 5.8 GT500 is going to be? I'd imagine up slighlty over that of the 2012 GT500... If its less, then I got a problem.... I'm going to want one.

Thats the only thing I wonder too about it...how much does it weigh and what is the front and rear split. What did the 2012 weigh?

The 2013 GT500 not only seems to be good comp for the ZL1 but it helps people not have the problem of whether to get tthe 5.0 or a GT500. GT500 is definitely top of the food chain at ford now. Seems that they gave the 5.4 the same bore treatment as the 4.6 got to make the 5.0.

I am curious if the GT500 will still use the plasma cylinder lining thing. Also curious what heads the GT500 will get. Are the 5.0 castings an upgrade over the current heads? How about the Boss heads? Even better, how about a new casting with bigger ports and better flow to handle the extra displacement.

I foresee GT500's in the 10's with just wheel/tire combos. Imagine a pulley and a tune :)

Good thing they didn't offer the 6spd auto in the gt500 otherwise I'd be tempted to trade in my 2012 gt. That setup with an auto and pulley/tune would be pretty win.

I know, thats the only thing I wish.

Put an auto with paddle shifters in this thing already. It would be the F'ing POO!

Being a hard core manual transmission guy I like the 6spd stick only option, but it won't take long for people to put those 6R80's in there.

Man. I am gonna have a hard time not buying one.
Funny, I am gonna have the exact opposite problem, maybe we can help each other out :)

I hope they cry about mustangs beating them 4 life. I caught enough hell from LS1 owners about my 4.6s I owned tO last a life time, they can kiss it as far as I'm concerned : )
