Technicality argument with friend
« on: May 16, 2022, 12:14:01 AM »
So i just want to see what you guys say.

I have a friend who's arguing with me about my unmodified sho not being considered stock. I consider it stock because it doesn't have want of the upgrade options and i haven't done anything to it.

He keeps saying its not stock because it's the highest trim level. My understanding of what's considered stock is anything that has not been modified from its manufacturing configuration. His idea of stock is base model vs top trim. Now from i can tell, the limited has the same v6 in it and I'm not sure about the transmission, but the only difference between trims doesn't come down to upgrades but almost totally different configurations. So you the limited vs the sho is the closest thing i can imagine being considered stock to non stock. Because it looks like without upgrades, the limited is the same as the sho. But i really don't know. So who's correct? Me, saying the sho is stock or him saying it's not?

You have a very confused friend. Doesn't sound like the kind of guy you would want to have any further conversations with about cars.

If it rolled off the Assembly line the way you bought it and it is still that way. It Is Stock.

If the dealer adds things to the car to help sell it. Pin Striping, Quarts coating, Undercoating, etc etc. It is still stock.

It is Not stock if Saleen, Rousch, or other Assembly line performance tuners that will take 50 Mustangs and upgrade them.
