2011 GT to 2012 GT 500

On the way to trade my 2011 Grabber Blue GT for a 2012 Grabber Blue GT500 with only 4500 miles. Wish me luck. So excited!

Good luck. I recently traded my 12 GT base for a 14 GT premium and I'm glad I did.

I did that exact same thing. I traded my 13 for a 2011 gt500 with svtpp package. I loved it for a month, and then when I started making the monthly payment, the fun factor didn't match the cost. I eventually traded for a 14 gt. I'm sure you've noticed already, but the power band is different and it almost feels slow because it's not a high revving engine like the 5.0. I miss it though : (

With the deal I got I couldn't pass this one up. Payments are not that much more per month. I can tell a big difference in the power curve. My wife says it's slower 'cause it "doesn't take her stomach". But it's one of those must own before you die cars lol.

They are not slower at all. It just feels sluggish because it's low revving. It still kills the 5.0.

I know what you mean. That's exactly why I bought mine.

Congrats buddy. It aint slow, nothing a simple pulley swap and tune wont fix. The 5.4 is a great motor and takes to power adders very nicely. Enjoy it
