    Stock these are decently fast!

    what you dont realize is that these thing put down some pretty impressive torque numbers. my stock 05 v6 makes about 265 ft/lds (using high qual lubes and k&n OE filter) at about 3500 rpm and the v8 puts down around 280ft/lbs at 4000 rpm. so with basic mods youe can get close to 300 ft lbs with...
