What will you do?

Are there any turbo kits out yet for the 3.7s?

My 2012 base has a key entry, only on the driver side though.
Do the 2013 not have a key hole on the drivers side?. That would be plain stupid

Even though I have a v6 and I hate this response, why wouldn't you just get a v8?

As a first car a gt insurance would be super high. But 7 grand for a turbo is too much also

You can say the same thing about the gts tho. I saw roush made a gt for the price of a new gt500

Yeah but you can easily pump out more than 662 hp out of a supercharged 5L. The cost between a base v6 to base v8 is about 10 grand as opposed to almost 30 for the Shelby

Fuel economy. Insurance. Why does it matter why someone bought one or the other? It is their money and their choice.

My guy at Roush said the stage 3 is faster to 130 than the new GT500. Supposedly they built it, and at the quarter mile the Roush takes the GT500. When I was in Michigan getting a hard on for the GT500 they had parked out back, he was telling me all about it. Interesting what suspension, tune and drag can really do for a car.

Re: What will you do?

I know that this isn't a turbo, but Procharger makes a supercharger for the 3.7Ls. It's under $6K too

Fuel economy probly won't be better after a turbo kit because you're not going to be driving it economically at all. Insurance doesn't matter because the amount you'll inevitably pay for repairs on a highly modded car will be a lot more than a stock car. And I'm assuming people who post on the forum want advice when they ask for advice

Yeah it's not hard to pump out horsepower out of the 302, my girlfriends drag car is putting out 1350 hp at the flywheel. Granted its pushing 30 pounds of boost and it's a drag only car for

I'm not saying it can't be done, but I mint to say didn't. The roush I saw cost the same as a new gt500 but was slightly slower.

I don't know much about the roush, but I know you can get more horsepower than the Shelby for around the same cost

Re: What will you do?

It's like this... The Shelby has better exterior styling than the new Roush (wtf were they thinking with those foglight surrounds?) and it has a better transmission (not a MT82). Those are two important factors when dumping that much money on a car. One is subjective, the other is not.

Oh, and you can get 500whp from the 3.7 if you want. Solobusa did it with a procharger, so it's going to be a lot easier getting it from a turbo. I know some of those Eatons can rob around 100whp at those levels. So, these turbo kits shall be interesting.

Re: What will you do?

No way, to get 500 at the wheels there's going to have to be a ton of upgrades to have it running properly, more than a base 5.0 atleast. I can't lie I love my 2011 v6, have just a tune intake tires and lower control arms, I just couldn't see buying a 7000 kit for it when I could just sell it for 17000 and have 24000 to spend on a used 5.0

Re: What will you do?

Procharger is $5k (turbo kit should be similar once CFM releases it, but more power), add some bigger injectors to the kit, run E85, get a tune. Voila. Even if you add alcohol injection and other goodies, you're still below the threshold for a GT.

The 5 grand supercharged kit isn't including the dyno tune, aluminum driveshaft, gears and all the other stuff youd need and also the 5 grand ones going to be putting 400 to the wheels if you have the other 2+ grand worth of upgrades you'd need

Re: What will you do?

You don't need an aluminum driveshaft, gears, etc to make 500hp at the wheels. Even the GT500 has 3.31s stock. The manual guys would need an aluminum flywheel to get rid of dual-mass. Auto guys and just drive it like they stole it. The car is almost identical to the GT in the key drivetrain areas. There is a reason I got a v6 Mustang over a v6 Camaro.

With a cai drivetrain tune exhaust headers and a supercharger American Muscle put down 400 to the wheels, so I don't see how with nothing but the supercharger you'll be putting down 500. That is unless your running about 16psi which will blow something in the stock engine pretty quick

---------- Post added at 05:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:59 PM ----------

Basically with over 9,000 bucks worth of performance upgrades not including installation and the appearance stuff AM made the v6 run the quarter mile a little less than a half second quicker than a bone stock gt. the labor alone on installing the challenging parts would easily be a grand. I just dont see the point of that much time, money and effort to be put in a v6 when you could just by a used 5.0 for 24,000 and have about 2 grand to make it faster than a fully blown v6. the 3.7 is an amazing engine without a doubt, I love going down to the strip and autocross with mine. But when you'd just be using it for a daily driver or occasionally track use i dont see the advantage.

The "you coulda got this" debate is just stupid. There's so many reasons why someone got the V6 over the GT. I'll tell you why I got mine..
1. I needed a DD also. Wanted a car to drive back and forth to work and have a fun car for the weekend.
2. Only had so much I could afford on the monthly payment.
3. This left me w/ two options, Premium V6 w/ $$ left for some mods (New wheels, springs, cold air, wing, and exhaust) or a base GT with no $$ left for mods. Plus the monthlies would be higher which would leave me less each month to save for more mods. And the premium is clearly the winner on interior. Love it and so does my GF.
4. The V6 was enough power for now, I focus more on handling. Anyone can make their car fast if they wanted. If I want to super/turbocharge down the road, I can save more money having my 6.

Some reasons for others could be gas, maybe it's their DD. Insurance. Not sure how much of a difference it is but every bit counts. And maybe someone just wants to be different. How many fast V6 mustangs do you see compared to it's V8 brother? It's different. Every bit more that GT costs cuts out on what you have to save. Now all this being said, overall the GT is the better deal performance wise. If you can afford it and want to "go fast", it is the better option. But like I said, anyone can super or turbocharge their car and make it fast. Trying to be the fastest is just a losing battle. Do what makes you happy. That's my 2cents!

+1 to cyclone

My reasons were much the same. If they would have a 12 gt premium with an auto I would have bought it just to say I got the v8. Vanity basically. But I also probably wouldn't have done mods for a while as the v8 version of my car was 8k more.

I could have afforded a gt but I would have had to wait and look and settle or buy a 13. Though the dealership is now a roush dealer and got a 12 v6 in 2 weeks later from ford ( outside of 150 miles cause I checked inventory) that fit my specs I still don't regret the v6. I would hardy ever use the extra hp but that's not to say I wouldn't enjoy it for vanities Sake. So I am completely happy with my v6 and I've had fu. Doing the mods I have so far which I dought I would have been able to do right away if I got the gt.

To each there own both cars are great.

To each their own.
In MY view, it is crazy to get the v8!

30+ mpg, and 300hp? Last on the lot for 20k? FR? That is unbeatable.

Driving it right, 35+ mpg. Mods take hp up. Low insurance, lower weight. The ONLY thing the 8 has is lower drag, and an aftermarket front fascia or just modding it yourself can easily drop that.

I respect the 8s, and love the Boss and 500s, but if you offered me a GT for my keys, I'd just laugh (providing it's not the Boss/LS, Stage 3, or 500). But if you want more power, then the 6 seems like a dumb choice to start with (and you don't have 500 money).
