V-6 hate by older GT owners

Hello

Do you all think our cars catch so much flak because our V-6 engines produce as much or more HP that older GT V-8's. I just don't understand the whole reason behind the crap storm of many GT owners.

Yes my car is a V-6 but very fast and it handles well.

My thought is just don't give a damn about negative opinions, it is your car and money enjoy it however you may!

If someone is giving you a hard time about owning a V-6 Mustang, just tell them that they obviously aren't a real Mustang owner and walk away. I could careless about the engine in a Mustang. As long as the owner loves their car, takes care of it, shows pride in it, and most of all, has fun with it...

I am in a club here in Tucson that welcomes all Mustangs and owners. Doesn't matter if it is old or brand new. 4 Banger, V-6, or V-8. Bone stock, or maxed out Shelby GT-500. A Mustang is a Mustang... They welcome all. That is really what matters.

I love pointing out the fact you can supercharge a v6 and make more power than the new gt, for 5k less than a new gt! Just let the sh*t fly, mustangs are mustangs! Drive it like you stole it and embrace the smile it puts on your face!

Wouldn't you be pissed if you had two more cylinders and still got beat off of the line by every college girl, driving her Mustang to class, while texting AND putting her makeup on?

A man can only take so much...
-sigh-


It's going to get much worse though... We're ALL fixing to get our asses handed to us by 4 CYL MUSTANGS!!!!!
That will just be HORRIBLE!

Maybe it's time for us to bury the hatchet guys. We all need to band together against this coming "EcoBoost Scourge". It may take all of the strength of our combined cylinders to fight them off!
If we belittle them enough, maybe they'll think that their cars aren't worth modding and it will buy us all some time.

So what do you say guys? A truce so that we can fight our common enemy?

I sold my 03 GT V-8 and bought a 2014 V6, I don't hate myself. My V8 did great burnouts but I have no interest in doing those anymore, it pisses people off and gets attention from the cops.

Well I wasn't trying to be a dick dude. But just going from the comments above. If more power doesn't make you faster, even if you CAN put it to the ground. That's basically saying my car, say when it get the blower on it, could be outran by a stock v-6.

And I have full suspension and will have DR's so I can plant the power hopefully. I just get the impression from what u said that it doesn't matter how much power u have, u can be beaten by a much lesser of a car. Which is true to some extent believe me I've been smoked before lol.

You have this completely backwards, I was stating that a v6 that is supercharged could run with a gt all day long. He said not necessarily.

your thinking to deep into into it.
There is more than just power, and putting the power to the ground that determines how fast a car is.

Weight, how the power band comes on, how long it can hold the power band. Etc

Didn't mean it as a insult. I meant it as, wasn't sure if you were being a smart ***, in the trolling sense.

I think the guys that are really hurt are the 2010 GT owners. God, imagine buying one of those brand new off the lot only to find out what Ford was releasing a few months later. I would have been so pissed. To make matters worse you find out the new v6 is just as powerful. LOLLLLLLLLLL I wonder how many complaints Ford or the dealers got.

Also in regards to the haters that I have experienced (v6 auto mustang), I usually ask them what they are driving and the usual response is some Honda or Mazda 3.

I was one of the 2010 gt guys that were pissed. I was tuned, headers, cat back, short throw, intake, and wide wheels running with 3.7s lol. I felt like a sissy. It sounded good though

I don't understand why V6 owners hate on V8 owners so much. I bought a V8 because it is what I wanted. Why do I have to be constantly labeled and talked down to because of it? Guys like that are worse than V8 owners IMHO.

From what I've read on this and most forums, it's the other way around. V8's getting down on V6's, just sayin'

at the end of the day... as a first time mustang keener, for DD 305hp 280 torque 19/29 mpg is more than enough. ( I have a little 08 civic prior to than and before that a 95 civic). at times I ask myself, do I really need more power? at the end of the day, I do not. This mustang is fast and I don't mind being stuck in traffic (u get people staring lol)
