Ford SVO engineers did that a couple of years ago with a later model and they had trouble getting it faster than the 12's because of no traction. Just way too much torque. You want different, use the 5.4. Quick, go with a small block. Know a guy out in York, PA who was running in the 11's with a 347 and a KB. Completly streetable.

Edit: Found the link to the SVO build - interesting read.

Thats cool... Reminds me of the Iroc trucks of the 90's where every one around here was building the chevy s-10's up with the F body parts and paxtons.. Then they came out with the cyclone but I still like the customs so much better... SVT- FTW

There are several who have put 460's in theirs. Several have put the complete Explorer 5.0L drivetrain in them, getting the power and the AWD. One guy did such a fantastic job he took truck of the year at two main Ranger sites.

I saw the SVT Thunder prototype in person and took these photos. Sure wish they would have put it into production.
