I own a 5.0 and technically a 3.7 still.

I love both. But after driving the 5.0 for awhile and getting back into the 3.7, i couldn't do it. Lol

Just detailed the 3.7 today and took it for a drive. Forgot how nice the S Types sound on them. And not a fan of the Barton shifter anymore after driving my 2016 5.0 too notchy feeling.

Did they fix the shifter bracket on the 15+?
God what a piece of garbage it is on the 13-14!
Was probably the best 80$ that I spent on the replacement bracket.

Same bracket. I swapped the one on my 2016 with a Steeda shifter bracket.

Before the swap, did you notice it being sloppy and notchy like the 11-14s?

The Georgia 3.7 crew is getting involved now, I doubt anyone will take you guys up on your offers. Either they know your reputation and know they will get embarrassed or they think you all are just trolls talking trash.

I don't think there is no dispute that somebody can take a 3.7 and be fast. This guy you talk about probably has talent and if you give him a 5.0 he's probably going to knock off GT500's

Mines a commuter, took delivery may 2012 for my 13 MCA with the 6spd, now has 115,5xxx miles. Was same price as base GT (talked dealer down). Ended up with v6 because of insurance reasons, GT was extra $100/month over the v6. I rarely use all 305hp so it wasn't worth the added expense but I will be finding a 13 boss to add to my garage in next couple years...


You know that warm and fuzzy feeling? That means something bad is about to happen...

I just want an owner of a 5.0 "killer" to chime in and show us his mod list, and it turn out to be longer than the 3 items that were mentioned.

Nah her parents took it off my hands. They gave me $2,000 to reimburse some of the work I did on it and took over payments. Still under my name though. So it helps my credit right now? Lol

It doesn't have any crazy performance mods really anymore.

All it has now is some cosmetics like window louvers, side scoops, caliper covers, gt/cs diffuser. Ford Racing rear lower control arms. 50th anniversary rims with 255/40/19 tires. Some pony package cosmetics.

It has Borla S Type mufflers, v6 performance package with the 3.31s, afe dry filter, premium interior, manual transmission. Backup camera. Window tint.

I think that is it.

So a lot more than a tune, ported intake, and a one piece driveshaft?

That's literally what I've been saying this entire time.

Let us know how he does.

Was built *buy* you huh? The term "full bolt on" is quite menacing. But all you really do in your posts is spew ignorance with incomplete sentences and terms like full bolt on and bring your wallet. Why don't you tell us all exactly what a record breaking 3.7 consists of. I think we all would love to actually understand what makes it so fast.

Oxford dosent matter what else this thread is saying. But obviously you read "Bring your 5.0 to GA and your wallet" and it's been said where we will be at countless times. Or maybe you should just keep on the threads and your car in the garage. Don't want to hurt no big bad 5.0 feelings when you get gapped by by a little v6

Well obviously I'm not driving to GA from CA for any reason. Put all that BS aside. Answer the question of what is done to your 5.0 gapping beast or you are just another guy running his mouth.

I would really like to know what you've done. Or are you just full of it?

Yes my mod list is way longer then 3 things. But from what the 5.0 guys are saying it dosent matter since they have 2 more cylinders then us. Like I stated before this post is aids. To call the v6 out then when we show up on the thread and call everyone out all the people that was talking **** dissappear. Except one guy who has to change up his insults to grammar punches. We will be at Atlanta motor Speedway on Fridays and silverdollar raceway June 18th. I hope to see oxford5pointslow soon.

Let's tell a guy who lives in California to show up to GA for a race and then call him a ***** when he won't show up? Makes sense.

Ghost pretty much said my list already. If you want a full list everything that on the car you'll have to wait because I'll have to post it when I get the na record until then you know I'm full bolt on with long tubes and full suspension with my stall on the way.

My car is slow. I was hoping to get some pointers on how to make it fast. I will go straight to American muscle and request the full bolt on kit and suspension with stall 🤔

Amercian muscle can be expensive at times. Make sure you search around little! But I'm glad you're putting forth the effort
