V6 to b8 pros and cons

I am about to purchase a 2001 bullit and I wanted to know what are the pros and cons from coming from a 1999 mustang v6.

A 2001 Bullitt is going to be better than a V6 in every single way possible, looks, performance, interior.... Everything


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I did say highway though lol. Now around town might be different depending on how much your foot weighs.

It doesn't help that I drive 80mph no matter what, with 4.10s lol. 2800rpm for a solid 2 hour drive doesn't yield a great mpg.

The biggest reason I won't swap gears yet until this car is no longer my daily

I'm probably going to drop down to 3.73s or 3.55s eventually. Depends on what I decide to do with my valve train and power adder

I got 22 mpg highway on my last cruise, but that was also at varying speeds with a few WOT pulls

V6 to b8 pros and cons

Lol... Everything is better except mpg. An even that's not far off. V8 hype

The only negative I can think of, is that most V8's have had a lot more abuse than a V6. You see GT's at the track 1000x more than v6's lol. Point in case

Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!

And he said 01 Bullitt, which is nicer than a GT, performance is about the same except for the awesome intake. But the interior is much nicer.

Ya anything 80 and over is wreckless in va which sux cuz the roads i drive on have a 70 mph speed limit so its really easy to go above 80 if ur not carefull and the cops wont even pull out to get u unless ur over 80 anyhow , it blows
