Very nice ride there. We too like seeing underdogs (V6) win especially against GM and Mopar and especially against imports

Re: Hello from a V8 guy

You know...the GT is really considered an under dog too. I love getting a hold of GTO's, C5 vettes (not Z06 though), any F-body, SRT-4's, and WRX's, and any of the new Challengers or Chargers (especially SRT-8 versions.)

Re: Hello from a V8 guy

welcome :thumbs2:

That's a very nice GT, and an impressive list of mods

I do agree with the GT being the v8 underdog, people don't think much of them, just that they sound good...it really is underpowered from the factory when compared to GM and the mopars...but it doesn't take much to get them going...thanks to the lighter GT platform and the abundant mod market.
