This person has less brain cells than the amount of horsepower a honda has.

Funny, though.

If I can't pick on this, who can I pick on???

*The process of an RPM works like this: Air goes into the intake. As the cam opens, and the as the piston is going down, it will fill the cylinder with a combination of gas and air. The valve then closes, then the spark plug fires, and the gases inside the cylinder explode. The piston starts coming back up and compresses the gases, turning the crank causing the exhaust valves to open and release the gases to the exhaust manifold. This is one RPM. For the slower readers, engines basically go through 4 strokes: suck (the intake of air), squish (the compression), bang (the spark plug igniting the gases), and blow (gases out the exhaust).

LOL!!

Bear in mind, this comes from a college student...

"The after market for the Mustang is limited, although they are probably fast enough as it is. Mustangs are good for people who desire speed at a low price. "

Yeah.....Is there soemthing you cannot find for a mustang?

"Foreign cars seemed to have an edge over American made muscle cars. Besides guzzling gas and having numerous defects, Americans became sick of muscle cars and all their glory. After turning to imports, customers realized that imports required just as much care as domestic. Both imports and domestics still have their loyal fans. There will always be Ford fans and their will always be the import fans. So which one is
better? Who knows. Once again, the consumer decides what he wants. As of right now, imports dominate the market, and the after market. It all depends on the wants and needs of the future vehicle owner."

Well we can see where this dumbass opion lies. And If you can find me someone who is sick of all muscle cars....

I know honda guys with more brain cells than that.

And Is a stock mustang 3.8 190hp at the wheels?

Ya, but did you know this?....

A SOHC makes it harder for the engine to reach higher revolutions per minute, or RPM's since it only has one cam. A DOHC gets twice the compression because both cams work together on the upstroke and down stroke. DOHC is generally better because it lowers the tension needed to reach the higher RPMs since it pulls and pushes from both sides. RPM is another term used often. RPMs tell the driver the amount of time it takes the engine to complete its four stroke combustion* and is usually located on the left side of the odometer.
The higher the RPMs can go without the needle in the red zone, the faster you go more quickly. This is called redlining. When the engine starts to redline, itís telling the driver that parts may begin to bend, stretch or break, so slow down. Hence the red color; red was intended to give the notion of danger, or stop. The higher the RPM, the better air flows through the engine; the better the air flows the engine, the better compression you get, which in turn, builds up more horsepower. VTEC is Variation valve Timing and lift Electronic Control. At a certain amount of RPMs, VTEC kicks in and makes the car speed up a little.
