Just save up for a bit and wait for a good deal to pop up on a 5.0. I got my 13 premium with recaros for $ 23.8k , 30k miles. Traded my v6 and put a couple grand towards it and payments stayed nearly the same for a way better car.

Nope. That's stock tune, 3.31 gears, mt-82, cruise control set about 77 99% highway in VA through the mountains.

I apologize for not being more specific on my comment. This was my fault and please let me explain what I was talking about. I was referring to the V8 rumble sound from factory set up, was weak and not impressive.

The power and performance is freaking awesome and I was only referring to the sound of it from the factory. My bad for not completing my thought and being more detailed. I see after rereading my post how it looks like and sorry for that.

Again, the 5.0 is very impressive for the performance and power it makes. Just its V8 rumble is less desirable from a factory set up.

Have a great day!

Well the same for the v6. After I added magnaflows to my 3.7 it sounded good, but the sound didnt match the looks of the mustang in my opinion. All you need is a few hundred $$ to make a stock 5.0 sound great.

I just wish Kona didn't feel like he has to defend the worlds 3.7's and all people who ever made the choice to buy one. Especially in a thread where a guy basically isn't happy with his. Love your show Kona, but brush that chip off your shoulder bud. We are okay with your choice. 😜


IG @Oxford5pointoh
No chip here good sir. I love the 5.0's. Heck my father has a 2014 CS 5.0 triple black. Amazing pony. Love it. Besides, how do you know the airbrushing work I'm getting is junk. Lol. 😆

I'm just not into the performance aspect as much as you or many others are, which by the way is cool. Nothing wrong with the OP not being happy with his 3.7. I was right there to tell him he made a mistake and needs to sell his 3.7 and buy the 5.0 asap.

If you don't like the car, trade it and buy another car you do like. I'm all for it. I don't feel like I have to defend the worlds 3.7's that's what alsfire and grabberblue 1993 job is. Ha ha ha

Have a great day!

I agree totally, the 3.7 factory mufflers are not so hot. The 3.7 also needs a full exhaust system.

Have a great day!

I'm gonna need full exhaust system on the 5.0 for my liking. I'm talking long tubes, H pipe and axle backs. Around $ 1,300 and done.

Have a great day!

Axle backs are fine for pure sound, depending on what brand you go with. That being said, I will have a header back exhaust at some point. I have to get a mid at some point soon

2014oxstang-- You clearly said:

Like I said earlier, I just couldn't bring myself to buy a V6 mustang, that's just my opinion. If I didn't have the funds, I'd pick a different platform.
Being a Mustang guy like you say you are, I would bet if your V8 was stolen or wrecked and all you could find is a V6 or Turbo 4 Mustang.That is what you would get and mod the heck out of it to get it your way.

I really don't think you would go for a Jap car or camaro. A hellcat maybe but probably another Mustang.

I do know what you mean about the 5.0 coyote engine. It is hard to beat and sounds great. I'm happy you love it and stick with Mustangs.

^this. In the 11-14 mustangs the v6 has extremely similar characteristics from the factory as the 5.0 with 2 less cylinders and 115 less hp. Both have sound deadening mufflers from the factory to make them "comfortable" for anyone looking to dd them and in order to get peak performance you will want to get a tune. Point being just about any negative attribute about one applies to the other.

Both stock and modded (regardless on how far you want to mod) both engines are great choices just depending on what you want. I love my v6 but you can bet if I ever got into racing again and wanted a fast car and not just a fun dd I would be selling it and buying a 5.0. It's hard to beat 420 hp with factory reliability.

I wasn't aware to be a "mustang enthusiast" you needed to only buy mustangs? That new? Lol if my V8 was stolen, I'd buy the new RS, or maybe a new 3 BMW. The mustang is my favorite vehicle, but it is not a necessity. Especially living in New England lol.

I'd get the new RS in a heartbeat, and put a Ford Racing tune on it.

Have a great day!
Yes it was a great price. And base 3.7's could be had for less than that, one of my employees bought a '14 V6 at the same dealer with my advice for less than $17000 OTD during the frenzy.
My wife's Focus Titanium hatch has all of the technology I need, and my Mark VIII LSC has the luxury. I picked the base GT as it had everything needed (and some not) with a muscle car. Everyone's needs and wants are different, hence four different models between 2011-2014 further broken down by Premium and base on the GT and V6.

This V8 versus V6 feud has been going on for many years. It will probably never be over.
I personally love a V8.
I also love a 3.7 Cyclone V6 ( I have one)
With my Mod's and my Magnaflows it not only looks good but also sounds great. The deep rumble of the Magnaflows are music to my ears and most of the people I meet at car shows or anyplace else tells me it sounds good when I'm backing into a space.
When I was at Orlando Speed World I turned a 13.3 My Friend turned a 13.1 with his 3.7 tuned V6 manual. There were Two V8's there both in the low 14's ( Wheels spin Problems)
Tony did run one and killed him. That don't mean the V8 is a slouch, It means the V6 does have an advantage at the drag strip with street tires.
On a roll going from 30 or 40 MPH the V8 will kill a V6 every time. But not by as much as you think it would.
What it boils down to is both engine on these new Mustangs are great and Both are worth owning.
They are getting 600 horsepower out of the turbo four with modification. Is there anything wrong with that? Of course not. Does that make it better then a V8 or V6 -Of course not. Are there people that will own a four love their Mustang -Of Course they will.
Oh Well, I said my peace.
Ronnie
Don't know about the V-6 having an advantage with street tires, with my off idle launch and soft peddling out of the hole I still ran a 12.7 at 114 at over 1000 ft D/A and my 300+ pound body driving. With slicks and aggressive launch it should be a high 11 second car. The V-6's I have run on the highway have been left by bus lengths, but I have not run a forced induction one yet. Just my experience, yours may differ.

Hi Scott

You know how to drive when Drag Racing. Most people do not.
I did state that on a roll the V6 has no chance at all against a V8.
Me and Tony did get one of the guys in the GT down to the mid 13'd from the mid 14's just by teaching him how to get going without cooking the tires. With practice he should do a whole lot better.

The old saying of " THERE AIN"T NO SUBSTITUTE FOR CUBIC INCHES" is usually right on. ( Forget turbos and SC's )
Ronnie

PS::: are you going to the American Muscle Mustang show?? They will have the drag strip open that evening. It should be a good time.

Snoop,

the Civic answer was a laff. +1 on this being one of the better forums the majority would prefer a V8 and admit it would be better.....but not everyone can/wants to spend the price be it a Turbo 4/ V6/ V8/Shelby etc.....

Mud would like a Boss Laguna Seca (or a 2015 GT) but is too cheap and my Base Model V6 with the perf package is still loved.

I had a 2011 v6 in grabber blue. And upgraded to the 2011 5.0 recently.

I think the v6 is all you need in reality. Mine was stock as hell the whole time I had it but enjoyed every minute of it.

Sure it doesn't sound like the v8 or pick up speed as quickly. But in reality it's worth it. You will end up saving yourself a lot of money too

You might save money if one doesn't mod their 5.0 and keep it completely stock. Spending 5k to mod a 5.0 one isn't gonna save anything except the ridicule of owning a V6 mustang. Ha ha. Which can be worth something! 👍

I have thick skin so getting my chops busted daily from my co workers and people about owning a V6 mustang, pays no mind to me. The fact their talking about my mustang is good enough to make me happy. 😆

OP, we all now know you messed up but no biggie. Sell the 14 V6 and get the 5.0. Problem solved! You deserve to be happy now get out there and treat yourself to that desired 5.0.


Have a great day!

PS::: are you going to the American Muscle Mustang show?? They will have the drag strip open that evening. It should be a good time.
Looks like I am off that weekend, I just might have to come up. I just went to the Fords at Carlisle event and had a blast.

This is even better

There is no other event like this one. This is ONLY MUSTANGS. No Fords No Street Rods No Trucks. I hope they keep it this way.
Plus you get to meet a few of the people that are on the Forum. It is nice to put faces to names even the ones we sometimes disagree with. We get to shake hands and get some good laughs and war stories.

I could've also gotten a 2014 5.0, or 2005 GTO , but I wanted that nice independent rear suspicion, with the nice interior I figured a daily driver 300 hrp was more than enough lol. And I have heard of many people trading in their 4 banger for a 5.0. Who knew the turbo lag was that bad hmm. Anyways It's really personal preference, like I previously mentioned most people can't tell apart of a v4,v6 or v8... I love my GT but I also love my v6 but I do prefer 2010 or newer v6's. I just thing older v6's look ugly without that duel exhaust lol.

Unless it is an old Saab, it doesn't have a V4.

Very, very, very few V4's out there. 99% are inline four cylinders, or I4.

did I mess up by buying a v6?

Porsche has a turbo 2.0L V4 in the 919.
