Just another FNG...

Hey everybody. I've been a Ford guy as long as I can remember, nearly every car or truck I've owned has been blue oval. I recently sold my 08 GT convertible and ordered the 11 V6. Am I crazy!? Time will tell. The new six banger is getting rave reviews and puts out nearly identical power to my 4.6 (when it was stock at least). I have two quick questions for anyone neighborly enough to answer them:

First:
has anyone out there traded or sold their 05-09 GT for the new 3.7? if so, any regrets?

Next:
I ordered my car with the performance package, can anyone direct me to an image of what the 19" wheels that come with that package look like? the Ford website doesn't show it, It only shows the 5.0 svt package.

thanks in advance for your response(s).

Re: Just another FNG...

Welcome. I don't think I'd ever trade in a GT for a V6 but that just me. The main reason is that even with them having the same hp. The tq is a lot different and that's what gives you the seat of the pants feeling when you floor it.

Re: Just another FNG...

it wont feel as fast as the powerbands are different, but im sure it will be a fun car to drive. A friend has one and likes it a lot, only issue is gas mileage in town is not great (16 or so mpg)

Smile Re: Just another FNG...

Thanks for the warm welcome.

It's definetely been tough to decide, there are some great deals out there on 2010 GT's. One local dealer is trying to sell me a new (2010) track pack GT for $27K. I wish I could afford a 5.0 right now, but, maybe in a couple years.


Here's the thing though, even though the Gt has more torque the 0-60 times are pretty close to the new V6. 4.9-5.2 for the GT, and 5.1-5.4 for the V6. with the 3.31 gears that comes in the v6 performance pack plus a custom tune, exhaust and CAI the lil V6 should be able to match the old GT's numbers. And with the new v6 you get the betta mpg and 10,000 mile oil changes, lower insurance, etc...

But, the sound of the 4.6 is addicting....

Geez....now I've got a problem.

And yes, it's a nice problem to have.

Welcome. That's not a bad problem to have if it's your only problem. The 2010 is a nice car as well. If gas is an issue than go with the V6, otherwise I think you would be happier with the V8 for sound reasons. I wouldn't mind either if I had the funds.

Re: Just another FNG...

welcome

Congrats on your new 2011 v6! I'd definitely be missing the v8 sound and tq pull, but that new v6 can hold its own.

I think these might be the wheels, if so you're lucky, I think they're awesome!
