V6 swap

Why would you build a v6 instead of just running a V8 swap? Weight?

Its not a weight thing truthfully. Most do it because they dont want to buy another car, or cant afford to. Very few accomplish thier goal of a built monster v6. But those few spend big bucks on cams, heads, boost etc, etc. They probably sink enough into the six that they could have bought a v8. There is a cammed, procharged v6 on youtube thats mean.

Hell, Ive already have spent enough on my six that I could have bought a v8 (and not much of that is into hp), and im going to spend much more on it too! But I can afford to, and will buy a gt as soon as im done with this project.

There are a lot of quick sixxers out there, but fast ones are few and far between.

my reasoning was for weight...i sold my GT last year to start working on my v6. I felt that slinging the weight of that 4.6 into the corners made it less balanced then my 3.9..so far my thoughts on it have seemed right. my v6 handles way better then my GT ever did

Yeah I feel like it is way easier to throw a V6 into a corner than it is a V8 do to it being lighter. You can make a V6 faster than what it is and have a car easier on gas too. Don't get me wrong I am planning on getting a V8 one day but right now I'm just having fun with my V6 for now. It's also easier to keep up and outrun imports in the turns do to the V6 being a lighter car. I've even outrun some foxbody 5.0's and sn95/new edge GT's on the road courses too, but in a strait line they would kill me.
