Whooo wait amin here
iam down with you guys enjoying your V6 Mustangs

But what kind of BIG BLOCK 70's cars are you talking about ?
a 1976 trans am or Corvette with 180 HP.

Iam pretty sure my 1972 440 Cuda 6 pak will do to your car that it does to my GT
Burn it ~~~~~ ~~~~~

So be a little more specific when you compare a V6 to a 70's Big Block
There's many of those Big Blocks STOCK that will run down a V6 and a GT

Yea spinning 15 inch tires for 3 seconds before they actually hook
and an exhaust system that could clog a main water pipe



Try a Big Block Cuda with Street Slicks and let the engine breath with a set of Headers

No Chance ~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~

a:
Well, most all big blocks in the early 70s, like 351W , Mopar 400 etc were hand-strung from what there late 60 versions were, now you get it?

A 1973 Monte 454 was a strangled beast for example....

Lol. Well, I'm not talking about a modded 72 Cuda. Ha ha ha. But not bad for a little 3.7 against a big block V8!

Here is a another Bonner killer for you...i lived in that era and those cars only were livable for guys that worked a grindstone or were rich...

A 440 cuda is a comparison to a 2013 SHelby DUDE

A 383 or 400 big block is what you have to compare to a GT today...or dont you get that different level????

if you call replacing spinning tires modded, so be it
and ANY Big block that was allowed to breath properly ONLY
is not modded, its just not so EPA Friendly.


1/4 mile is all about Suspension and proper tire grip
A roll on against a typical Big Block starting around 20 mph and
its all tailights for the V6.

You obviously have never rode in a 428 Cobra jet Mustang
Stock it would pull your lunch out of your stomach
But needed the right tires to do it .

I know, I owned one

You also said headers. That's modded. One could put a pair of slicks on the 3.7 too and traction increases and no I haven't been in a 428 Cobra Jet Mustang. Ha ha ha!

I'm sure a 428 Cobra Jet Mustang would make me want too sell my V6. Ha ha ha. But I'm sure the 5.0 compared to the 428 Cobra Jet is bye bye sell 5.0 too. Popcorn with butter.

Ahh My Boners fine Dude
You obviously dont know squat about MOPARS

The 440 was produced from 1967 to 1980
and do you know what its MAIN application was
MOTORHOMES

All those Winnebago's that were floating around back then were powered by 440's
also many TRUCKS and BOATS and even Tractors had bone stock 440's
and could be had in any new Mopar for maybe $100 over a 383

So to compare a 440 to an exotic Supercharged Shelby engine is nuts
The 440 was as prehistoric of an engine that you could buy
it was put into cars because of its insane torque
and a 6 pack induction turned it into a Monster

A 426 HEMI is the exotic Shelby counterpart
Not the 440 which serviced Winnebago's

You get That ' Right ?

I bought the car for looks, so the v6 was a no-brainer especially when it is cheaper to buy and own. Still has plenty of power to play with

This guy sounds like the guy off graveyard cars as much as he loves mopars. And he actually thinks we care to know about a mopar just like he cares to know anything about our cars. We also see where the all perfect modern mopars are running now. The bottom.

I am happy with 305 HP for daily driving and the MPG's are great with the v6 so I have no regrets as I drive a lot for work. If it was a second car or something I planned to race I would have gotten a GT. But at the end of the day its whatever makes you happy. I realize and I feel like its important to realize that generally its not modding a V6 to attempt to get to V8 numbers. If thats your goal just get a V8 and and start with a better more reliable platform.

The 440 was produced from 1966 to 1978. Also, true MOPAR guys never referred to their motors as big block or small block. That was a GM thing. I grew up on MOPAR, owned my own 'Cuda for many years.

I love in Boston,MA and there is so much traffic, I have the V6 and it is awesome here, it really just depends where you live and like you said how much can you really use it to its full potential. I can't go too fast cause there is always always always traffic here.

I lived by a guy who had one at his repair shop (back then they were called gas stations) , that is a super car, not a run of the mill 60s-70 big block that kids bought used and hot rodded. It was a factory race car, like the 2013 Cobra Jet is today that costs $99K. My friends father in -law has a 2012 CJ not allowed to run on the road car. They don't give you a title, only a bill of sale.

Oh,the 440 Wedge (which is a big block) used in trucks and motor homes is allot different than the 440-6pack in a 'Cuda !

(think wheasy 8:1 compression and no quench in the mid to late 70s)

Dude
ANYONE could buy a Mustang, Torino or even a Mercury Cougar
with a 428 Cobra jet between 1968 to 1970 till the 429 hit the sceen

It was not some special racing engine
The BOSS 429 was a factory racing engine mandated by NASCAR to produce 500 units to allow it to compete according to their rule books.

Yes Produced in 1966 but INSTALLED in 1967
Engines are always manufactured one year before they put them in production vehicles.

And EVERYONE I ever hung with in the 70's called their Big Blocks, Big Blocks
And If you were such an avid Mopar guy ,Your forgetting about the 426 Hemi removes any credibility as to what Chrysler engine was the equivalent to today's Shelby.

I 'll match 15 Mopars I've owned to your one cuda

No I have done my homework, no not just anyone could have bought the 428, unless they had lots of money, the same kind of money it take to buy a Shelby GT500 today. You must have been born rich is all I can figure. I am talking about what NORMAL kids and 21 year olds could buy in the late 60s and 70s; do your homework on 70s middle america and the cost of money vs wages paid.

We had to by second hand items that were not the upper shelf and then hot rod them. That's what hot rodding is, taking something used and hoppin' it up

Well, any MOPAR guys I ran into in the 70s and 80s were insulted when people referred to their motors as big blocks or small blocks. That was strictly a GM designation.

I never compared the Hemi to today's Shelby. You're confusing me with other people.

I owned many MOPARs, only mentioned the 'Cuda because you said you owned one also. My brother, who is 14 years older than I and started with cars back in the 60s still has a few of his MOPARs, and owned dozens over the years that I grew up helping him wrench on.

Nice to see you back out here, always a treat!

Thats Funny
I bought my 1969 Super Cobra Jet Mustang that only needed a paint job for
$900 back in 1978 and was working as a bus boy at a restaurant

I had to serve loosers that cant debate without using the word TROLL
to bail them out ****

That's about 10 year later than the late 60s, and as a under 23 year old your insurance didnt freak about the Cobra Jet? (Plymouth created the Sebring Plus to be an Insurance sleeper that purchase price cost more than a road runner but less insurance cost monthly) Whatever, I am going to quit exchanging the facts of my life I lived vs the facts of your's you lived. They apparently are far apart and different, even if true on both sides.

Love to have an L-89 tri powered Corvette circa 1969. One of my dads co-workers had one back in the day and on slicks it was a beast.

I understand there are 100 hp difference but how much of that can you really enjoy when the speed limits are low... Plus i would be paying more on gas (lower MPG, and premium gas) . So, I feel like instead of paying the extra $ for cool upgrades, I would be paying for extra HP that I might not be able to enjoy, and would make the car fuel more expensive?
I was in the same boat last July when I was in the market for a mustang. I knew I wanted a 2013 for aesthetic reasons, but I was deciding between the V6 premium, V8 base, or V8 premium. I crunched the numbers and yeah I could have gotten the V8 base or premium, but I looked at how much money I would be saving compared to the V6 premium. The difference was pretty huge.

Knowing full well that I will be going to grad school (starting this July) I knew I needed money for that. I knew I didn't want my car to stay bone stock and would need money for mods. I knew I wouldn't be tracking my car anytime soon, so I couldn't justify spending the extra cash if I wasn't going to see the car's full potential.

All in all do I regret my decision? Hell no! I am putting a lot of money away every month, and I have money to spend on mods and all my other interests, as well as a nice all inclusive vacation to Cancun at the end of June for 10 days. If I had gotten the V8 I wouldn't be able to do any of that.
