Extra Information from the Owner
This Lightning is actually somewhat special. It is a 1999 model, but was built for internal use for SVT. It was one of 15 such vehicles that served as press and show vehicles. Later, SVT needed a couple 2000 models to show, but the new 2000 models had not come off the assembly line yet. Therefore, SVT sent two of the original 15 trucks over to Roush Industries, who updated them with all 2000 parts. SVT then used and presented them as 2000 models for show and media purposes. This is one of those two updated / prototype Lightnings. After the 2000 models were rolling off the assembly line, and the truck had served its purpose to SVT, I was able to acquire the truck and add the beast to my Stable.

The truck will primarily be used for fun, a daily driver during the summer months, to tow my Mustang to the track, and as a Lightning project vehicle for Mustang Works. In the summer of 2000, I ran it at the NMRA event in Stanton, Michigan. In 90 degree air (kills the blower!) it still turned 14.2 at 98 MPH. However, in cool air (60's - 70's) went in the high 13's. As demonstrated by many other stock Lightnings.

In April of 2001, Mustang Works did an installation of a complete Bassani Lightning exhaust system on the truck. Beyond a K&N air filter, this is the only modification I've done to the truck thus far.
