Go find reviews of your federals from a *more* comparable vehicle. Try Corvette, 03/04 Terminators, 05+ mustang, etc. Something somewhat similar in weight, power, and driveline config. Then, make a decision.
Good points and noted. I guess overall I just don't feel comfortable going with them and hoped I would be convinced otherwise. Or I should say my wallet had hoped.
