I do think the 6R80 might be stronger than a 6L80E but you need to consider that the torque being applied to it is usually way less and the car that its in usually weighs less as well. I actually...

The better unsprung weight would be true if the new tires were not run flats. I bet the weight is more or the same with the new tires vs the old. I hate run flats with a passion. Good news is they...

As far as the topic of the thread I don't see Ford making any engine changes until at least 2017 and even then I think they might drop the NA V6 all together. They have too much money in Ecoboost...

Biggest gripe is the whole rear end but I can easily live with it because of how good the rest of the car is and it still looks better than the 2014-2015 model.

I agree.

At least 200lbs weight loss+455HP LT1+8L90E=I'm impressed.
