Someone has faster, more HP and handles better.

Everyone is making the mistake of comparing the v6 to the 5.0 when in reality they are in 2 completely separate classes. The pice and performance are both individually the best bang for buck within their own class this making them both separately amazing.
That 2nd comment is the truth!

But, the root of his question is; Do I get a V6 or a V8. If there is a question... get the V6.

The one thing I have really learn in the last week is that the 334HP to the rear wheel(yes its been dyno tested)is plenty enough for me in this monsoon weather I've been seeing daily, so to have more HP off a manual would be a rough one for me to handle. But since a new V8 will not be my daily driver I think I will go with it. Hey, maybe I can make money off of it in the long run considering it will most likely have less than 25k after 5 years(I work a lot). A perfect world would be to keep my V6 as my daily driver and a V8 for my show car. What a beautiful world my life would be.....LOL

I may be alone on this opinion, but I've never gotten something and wanted less, more times than I've gotten something and wanted more...

In other words, go big or go home.
