The base package—without any extras—will set you back $14,950 and that includes the ignition and carburetor. The other two packages produce 525 hp (Extended Cruise) and 565 hp (Classic). The Extended Cruise goes for $13,500, while the Classic is listed as $13,950. Like the HHR, the pricing includes the ignition and carburetor.
New for 2011 is an optional EFI version with an Inglese intake manifold, which utilizes a set of eight throttle bodies. SSRE pre-programs the FAST EZ-EFI system during the engine's dyno session. The EFI system jumps the price tag by $5,200 but will add a unique flare to your Mustang or Ford.
A package deal, like the Ultra Street 427, removes the guesswork from making horsepower, so you don’t have to waste time just talking about going fast.
Naturally, we wanted to checkout the most powerful of the bunch, the Hot Hydraulic Roller (HHR).
