    I know it's going off-topic, but your description of the typical car YouTube channel is dead on. If you'd like to see a channel (sadly, not cars) that's the exact opposite of what you've described, search YT for "WILDERNESS COOKING". Each 12 or so minute episode has maybe 10 words and no music. 300,000 followers though, so he's proving that fancy production isn't everything.

    Probably not. They knew they were bringing back the GT500 I think right after Coletti left/retired. They wanted a cheaper version of the Ford GT engine for the next halo Mustang. More displacement and better heads while keeping the supercharger were the order. 3V didnt have a prayer. Though, some say the 3V with lopey cams has some of the best modular exhaust tones.

    OMG hahaha perfect. Ya there has been a huge rise lately (it seems to me) of new member on her just to post their youtube videos. And normally they are annoying.

    The GT500 was originally just the next Cobra, and the S-197 Bullitt nearly got a 4V.

    Yes. I was there a few years before here. 04/05 maybe. I remember Turbo5.0mike well. We had a Nee England get together as a friends dyno. It was a great forum. Tons of knowledge and great tech.

    I've been a member on corral for many years. My username is 91GTstroked. I just started being more active on there again since I bought my 90 coupe in 2019.

    BTW that member Indy drives me crazy. A Mr. Know it all. I've never seen him post any pictures of his junk either...

    I used to be on there a lot too back when I had my 2V. Went back after I bought the 2012 for a small stint. I think I know who you are talking about.

    Seems like ever forum has a few. Anyone remember that guy with the first Gen Miata on here that was “always” going to buy another car, but something always stopped the deal? I think the last one he “was” going to buy was a Hellcat.

    I stand corrected. Honestly a shame that the Bullitt didnt get the 4v 4.6 though.

    I laughed way to hard at this! You're spot on.

    There are at least two of these clowns I can think of here.

    The 3V still has the best sound. One of the things it brings to the table with which the Coyote can't compete.

    I should have bought the complete prototype engine when I had the chance. A member here on SVTP had the intake manifold. Really wish I had gotten at least that.

    Something about a single, large exhaust valve. And while an x pipe or pro chamber offers the best scavenging, the exhaust tone sounds terrible to my ears. Which is why my GT500 is staying H pipe.

    Ehhh. I think I read somewhere that an X-pipe only offers 1-2 HP over an H-pipe.

    Forums are definitely on the come back. Can't count the number of FB quitters I've seen in the last few weeks.

    They key will be classifieds coming back on forums/craigslist (or similar).

    That's definitely one of the specific people I had in mind when I made my post. I've never encountered someone else that's both wrong and a dick to that extent (at least on forums, that's the default on social media). At least on some forums for classics they're a bunch of cranky old farts, but they know their stuff upside down and backwards.

    Yeah, Facebook is garbage. Always has been. It's designed to keep you scrolling forever while pushing ads at you and stealing your data.

    It makes following builds, finding tech and having dialog impossible. It also makes being able to quickly analyze a user's value impossible. You can't simply click the user name, pull up their builds and threads and get a feel for their legitimacy.

    Classifieds are also garbage and pretty much worse then the classic CL postings. It's also hard to search.
