05-09 GT or V6 ?

I recently purchased a 2012 v6 premium and with each day that passes, i crave the v8 even more. I am fully aware that they have about the same hp but i feel like i would be happier with an 8 cylinder. Would it be a good idea to swap mine for an older gt? Pros/cons if possible and any reasons that hold weight that support getting the gt. Thanks in advance

GT has same hp but way more torque which is what really matters!!

And mod for mod the GT will pick up more power.

When i was first deciding between a mustang to get i was mostly looking at the 05-09 V6 (V6 to satisfy my parents)... But I could not give up the sound of a V8, so i started looking at the 99-04 GTs instead.

I ended up getting a 2001 Mustang Bullitt. No offense to any V6 guys... But honestly i can not see myself driving a V6 Mustang at all.

GT. Its is just more fun to play with. Plus, there are too many v6 mustangs on the road

If you bought it for transportation keep the six, you already have it. If it's just a toy, most definitely the v8.

Not like everyday just a test drive. Stock vs stock there won't be a whole lot..but like someone said mod vs mod is where it will make you happy. And you could probably make a bit of $$$ off your car now if you don't owe a lot. And with the $$$ you can add a few mods.

Had to get a V6 or it was no mustang at all so that was an obvious choice. And if you gotta keep the 6 then put on a tuner and a cai and an exhaust of your choice and it won't resemble anything like stock in terms of driving and fun!

Did you buy it? If so tell them you regret it and want to get your value back out of it while its still newer. I had my Cobra registered under my Parents until I was 25 just so I could get their insurance policy discount and it was understood that it was MY car. As long as I paid what I cost on the policy and added no points I was good and it worked out.

However, if they bought it its their car and if that's what you get that's what you get. I would have KILLED to have someone buy me a car as nice as a 2012 V6 before I got out on my own if that is indeed the case.

Don't lose perspective on the fact the folks are supportive of a Stang at all - that's very cool!

i had an 06 v6 my first mustang and craved that v8. so considered doing the engine swap n all that wasn't worth it. even tho my car was in great shape. a year later that stang had 97k miles lol so I went and traded it in at ford for an 08 gt with 10k on it hahhah and now I'm completely happy my fiance was all for it lol so always good . so I say if you want a gt go for it BC you'll just be thinking of wow I could of had thatttt and every time you see a gt you'll be like that could be mines hahah

He is talking about a 2012 V6 though, not an 06. Completely different animals. If its his car and he is paying for everything I don't know why a parent wouldn't want the 5.0 unless they think he'll kill himself driving it. Although they probably aren't aware of the new V6 and how it is basically a 2010 GT lol.
