New '13-'14 GT or used '11-'12 GT500

Topic title says it all. In your opinion, considering platform potential, reliability, longevity, and pricing of aftermarket parts, would you opt for a new 5.0 or a used 30K miles or less '11-'12 GT500? Thanks!

What are your goals? If you want to match the GT500 performance and don't really care that it's got a snake badge, I'd just get the 5.0 and go forced induction. These motors are proving extremely reliable.

Check out a Hellion twin turbo or a Whipple or KB S/C kit to engage beast mode.

Hellion is a :thumbdown:

On3 is the way to go proven way more than the hellion kit on the coyotes

On3 kit stock motor and 10 psi and e85 will be far more superior then a gt500 with pulley and Boltons/full exhaust

If you can still find a leftover 14 that's going to be a WAY better deal. By like $15-$20k...

I'm actually eyeing the On3 kit as we speak. Do you think a turbo install is possible in a garage without a lift??

I am speaking only from secondhand accounts but a LOT of guys say they do the On3 kit in the garage with the motor in the car with a good set of tools. Apparently Chad designed the thing really well and everything fits perfectly. There have been a few tweaks over the years with it, I have followed the original thread he made back on the Corral.

Yes. Did my buddies on a lift.
1. Get a engine support bar from harbor freight. And drop the K member. Makes everything a lot easier

Is that HF engine support bar something that is universal? I'm assuming it is. I'm going to be going right past a HF today and I might pick it up just to have it.

TBTH if one is getting a 12-down GT500 the best buys are probably the 07-09 units at under $30k for real nice ones with low miles. Still not as good a buy as a 2011 base model GT with 20k miles for $20k monies. They are out there.
