If you are asking if it is a solid car, then yea. Got to give us more variables than that to tell you if it will be worth it though. What are your concerns, for starters?

Just got my 2012 v6 premium. Pony package is the way to go (better rims). I got racing red with the louvers and side scoops. LOVE IT! Also recommend getting the slip differential.

Re: 2012 mustang v6

IMO, if you are going to get anything I'd say get the GT if possible. Believe me once you get the V6 you'll definitely want the extra power.

Got the V6 with PP. handles better than the base GT and gets 4-5 mpg better average. Yea GT is more power but if mpg is important to you than a V6 is the way to go. 305 hp isn't bad either, get a tune and a Cai and run premium you'll be about 330-340 with some good off the line torque. Plus it's about $5k less. Now if you're planning on getting a 3.7 and doing thousands in mods just go with the GT and get that plus a warranty.

Re: 2012 mustang v6

The 2012s are the ones with 305 that's 5 more hp than my dads 08 GT so I wouldn't mind getting a 2012. They've got more hp than the previous sixxers

In my 12 v6 I raced a friend of mine. He has a supercharged cobalt with 17 pound of boost. We tied. Not bad for stock with a set of borlas vs supercharged, forged internals, magnaflow exhaust, and a lighter car. Plus he is physically 10 pounds lighter than I am.

For sure! I just traded my 08 v6 for my 12 v6 and you can really feel the 305hp and what I like more than the power is the handling! And I like the extra power a lot! The laterall movement is supreme compared to the 08 and I didn't even get the $2,000 performance package

I have an 2011 stang, the 305 is a small beast. I put the flowmaster exhaust system on it and just three weeks ago I got a sct bama tuner. Im using the 91 performance tune. Transforms the stock pony into a wild stallion. Pulls way harder and no delay when you juice it. Never skips over gears and you get the full power of the 3.7

I purchased the sct bama tuner from American Musscle online for $ 379.00 dollars free shipping. American Musscle gives you free tunes for life. To answer your second question about the warranty. Dealers can void your factory warranty if they can prove the defect is because of the tuner. That of course can be argued by the dealer and you. I called American Musscle. They stand by there product and they pledge that if a dealer will not fix a warranty issue and claim its because the direct result of the tune, then American Musscle says they will pay to fix the issue. No cost to us. I have researched American Musscle and have found nothing but awesome things about them.

My 2011 stang only has 7,200 miles and I have owned it since October 2010. I know there may be a warranty issue but I believe my three year warranty will be up long before I ever hit 36,000. I only have two years left to my warranty.

The tuner is great. Gets rid of the speed rev limit. Gets rid of delay when accelerating. Pulls harder. Increase hp and torque. Opens full throttle response. Never skips a gear. Huge difference. I was skeptical at first but glad I bought it.

Ya go for it man. You won't regret it. If you have the extra funds and want a almost double car payment get the 5.0. I have alot of friends with gt's and go to the track quiet often and I have never had a 2010 and older gt beat me. Even both of my friends with 5.0s barely pull on me. For the money its far better than any gt every produced (except the 5.0)!!!

Just weighing in on the GT verses the V6. Unless you're taking it to the track, not sure why you would want a GT. I recently sat in the 50k Cobra and was happy to say its almost identical to the 2012 V6 interior. The GT will cost much more in gas as well as insurance. And the 305 HP is smokin fast.

Yeah, Unless your going to track or road course the 305 hp is fast. It keeps with any 2010 or previous Gt. With the sixer ones insurance will be quite less than the V8. I know we like to get the big V8 so we can feel big and bad on the road but remember their is always something faster and more bad out there. You can have 600 hp and there will be someone who has 750hp. Chasing the tail end of Horsepower and performance rainbow, its one that will never be won. Someone out there has more.

Bro, when I tell you my 10 year old could tune the car with the sct bama tuner, I mean it. Piece of cake. Believe me, im no mechanic by any means and have almost zero skills when it comes to working on cars. American Musscle made this device for super easy. You just connect the cord of the device into the slot that is under your steering wheel area. The plug reminds me of something a computer monitor gets hooked into the computer tower.

Once plugged in, the tuner automatically turns itself on. It prompts you what to do. Walks you right through it. The device does all the work. You just hit the stock custom tune, pick which tune you want to upload, street, performance or race, turn the key forward and back when tells you and done. The very first tune will take 10 minutes or so.

Kona blue you bring up a question for me. You mention the 3 different tunes the Bama tuner comes with. Street, performance, and race. I'm looking to get a tuner soon as well so which tune do you recommend? I know American muscle gives a pretty self-explanatory description of each but I'm just interested in the insight from people who have actually used them

The type of tune that would best work for you will depend on the type of driving that you do and what you are using your car for. I have a 87 street tune, 91 performance tune and 91 race tune. That 87 and 91 represents the minimum octane needed to use that tune. One can always fill up with 93 octane on a 91, 89 or 87 tune. You just can't put gas octane lower than your tune octane setting.

I have tried all 3 tunes street, performance, and race tune. My favorite one of all is the 91 performance tune. All my driving is highway and with the performance tune you get the most response at 3000 and up rpm's. Since I do not race my car on a track I did not care for the race tune. When pulling out of my driveway and going down the road at 10 miles per hour my rpm's were at 2500. I found this engine reving noise quite annoying .

Re: 2012 mustang v6

You should try the Hybrid Tune...Its the Street and Race together...so you get that low end and top end.
