You guys say that now, but would you really take a v6 over a v8? We're talking ab the v8 rumble, v8 appearance, and just the concept of an iconic v8 muscle car?

The whole stereotypical "oh a v6? should of got a v8" thing still lingers although the 3.7 is nothing to joke ab. I guess you could use it to your advantage when you smoke an old v8 with the new v6 but still... I just feel more at home with a v8 under the hood and it would be very hard to give up the v8 sound.

Props to you man! You've gone along way with your car. I read up on some on your earlier posts and felt right stupid for having called you out. Also glad to have met you.

The new V6 will look identical to the Coyote if you do a simple fascia swap, nevermind the badging. Just de-badge or get a 3.7 badge who cares. Yes I'd rather have a new V6 than a 3V for many reasons if the price was the same or close. Unless maybe it was the 2010 3V but ppl selling them think they are worth the book value on them. No, they are not because for a few $k more I can get a Coyote. 2010 3V should be priced right in line with the 2011 V6.

"V8 Rumble", please, I'm the guy who runs a catted pipe and straight throughs so it sounds mild/quiet until you stomp on it. And with the right exhaust the V6 can sound pretty good too and even better when you smoke someone who is just like "lol V6" not knowing the new V6 is the previous generation's GT.

Agreed. But i dont think their shud be comparison between the newer V6 and the older GT. They are from different eras of the Mustang. There is a reason the V8 comes in the GT and why the V6 is cheaper than it. Regardless of 3v or 2v and even the coyote, the V8 is a great engine that has large reserves of power that can be easily accessed with a few bolt ons and a tune or you can decide to go the full distance and do a complete rebuild on it with forged internals,blowers etc. My buddy has one that is supercharged that has over 225,000 miles on it and still runs great. The fact of the matter is that theV6 just cant take as much modification as the V8 on the GT's because they are more road friendly than drag strip or track. The general noises and clunks you hear in a GT you wont find in a V6. Even the suspension is stiffer on the GT's in most cases. The bottom line in my opinion is that a V6 in the same generation is always going to be cheaper than a GT in the same category simply because it is alot tougher and closer to being a race/track friendly car than the 6'ers! It all comes down to personal preference and what you would feel comfortable owning and most importantly what you can afford, but if your going to buy a 6 and spend a few grand on it making it as fast as GT, save yourself the headache and just buy a GT!!!

So you don't think a comparison between the 315bhp 3V S197 and the 300bhp V6 S197 is valid eh? Do go on.

As far as modding the 2011+ V6, they take great to mods not sure what universe you live in... I'm not talking about the previous years btw in case that wasn't blatantly obvious.

I ask them if its a 2011-up. If they say no I laugh and point and walk away. If its a 2011 up I direct them to the appropriate forums and vendor sites.

So then knowing the 2011 V6 performance specs are very close to the previous year GT, tell me again why its not good to compare them?

I should of been more clear, I was talking about the 2010 GT (3v + new body) vs. the 11'+ V6, and whether or not you'd choose between the two. I do agree with you though on the pricing of the aforementioned Mustangs. 2010 and 2011 GT's shouldn't even be close in price.

The 2010 GT makes 315 HP / 325 TQ. The 2011 V6 makes 305 HP / 280 TQ. Without modification to each, the 2010 GT still wins. Just for clarification; nothing else needs to be said further on this topic.

Moving on... As far as sound goes; like you said, you may be able to get close to a V8's sound, but it still doesn't sound like a real V8. It's just my personal preference. I also don't like 'bastardizing' vehicles, it just doesn't sit right with me. I will say though, the 3.7 does pull it off somewhat. 05'-09' V6's though, makes me sick.

I wouldn't mind owning a 10 3v though. The last car of a certain model is usually the best one you can get. My car is an 04 and has all the best stuff from the 2v cuz they had everything figured out already.

Just like I'm assuming the '10 has all the best 3v stuff as well as the most power from a 3v.

I already did. You can go ahead and compare all you want, for me they are two generations apart and not the same engine base and also not in the GT category. That is all i have to say on that.

Then you'd want a 2009, the 2010 was a one off year. 05-09 drivetrain in the 2011-2014 body/interior.

And yes the 2010 3V still beats the 3.7L but its not so far apart as one would think, not like it used to be. Biggest problem with the 2010 3V is, like I said, owners want KBB for them and they aren't worth anywhere near close to that.

I'd think the 2010 would be the most polished year. Most polished 3v and there were really no issues that popped up with the new body or suspension that were fixed down the road, just minor improvements. And I view the one-off aspect as a rarity or just a positive thing.

Me personally I would still get the 3.7l. I never got to play around with moding the way I wanted to on my wife's when she had it. So one day I might have to pick one up to play with
