drive a chipped v8 and you will change your mind. the problem with the v8 is the way they have it severely detuned

The difference is nearly 100 HP. What you were feeling is your brain deceiving you!!!!! In driving both they are similsr in handling but in acceleration there is no similarities.

Yeah, the electronic throttle control and torque control does hurt the GT's performance, but there is still a huge difference. It's just that the GT feels a LOT smoother then the V6 and that makes people think it's not as fast as it really is.

smoothness doesn't mean fastness, haha.

The V8 will be faster than the V6, no doubt.
