Correct stock ecocrap is 6sec? No tune is gunna drop it 2 seconds.

Tune a 6.4L there is no replacement for displacement!

YouTube Livernois ford explorer..... Tune down pipe and exhaust and running 12s in the quarter mile. Still cheaper than an SRT. Just saying, to each his own taste.

At the end of the day, these vehicles aren't sports cars. Personally, I'd rather go spend 70k on a Shelby gt500 or Boss 302 if I wanted to spend that much.

Watched the video and many others videos with the Explorers street racing and embarrassing some performance car owners, Ford is definitely on the right path.

Here in Canada I could get a fully loaded Explorer for $50K and a GC SRT for $80K with dealer markup, crazy.

An Exploder that will eat up a GC SRT with a motor almost twice the size.

Interesting thread. Love the read.
In Australia we have the whole Ford v Holden (GM) rivalry.
Its also a well known fact that a Ford is only ever Found On Rubbish Dumps.....
