Although I did buy the GT, here is something to compare.......the new V6 has the same HP as the 1997 COBRA I once had.
It is not a weak engine by any means, it's just that all engines have come a long way since then. Just imagine the new V6 hanging door to door in a drag race with a '97 COBRA!!!

What does he drive? From my personal experience people who say comments like that 1. Don't have room to be talking about a 200 hp civic si let alone a 305 hp mustang and 2. Usually have very limited knowledge of cars and make comments like that about anything that isn't the top model offered. From all the meets, days at the track , and other interactions with car guys I've never once had anyone talk crap about any of my cars. It's always the bench racers who drive a 4 door 120 hp accord that feel like they need to talk crap and talk about what there "going to have soon or someday".

a few cars from POS to a new Civic. I was more surprised that someone who never drove a car till he was 40-50 knew V8 (and 5.0!).

Yeah I'll definitely try to bargain him considering that he installed Flowmasters on my GT.

14 v6 mustang + soon to arrive procharger sc = 400 rwhp lol cannot complain at all about purchasing my v6. Perfect sleeper. Great mileage. Low insurance etc etc. never driven a v8, but wen I initially got my v6 I was upgrading from an 08 civic so I went from 140hp to 305hp. No regrets.


Flowmaster force 2 exhaust, jlt cai, x4 bama tuner, carbon fiber dash overlay kit, modern retro shift knob, mmd hood and side scoops, classic quarter louvers, gt500 spoiler, 3.7 and pony emblems, mustang rocker stripes, eibach anti sway roll bar kit, Bbk shorty ceramic tuned headers

The procharger is a great turnkey kit, you should make about 400/320 to the wheels. You will obviously need to get a legit custom tune burnt tho.

Problem again with the sixxer is that a nice one plus the cost of a power adder=coyote price. Coyote isn't exactly a ton of insurance if you don't have any points and still gets good mileage.

Doesn't a turbo kit run you 6 thousand? Risk voiding warranty ? If I were ever to install something major like that I would just go for a 5.0 lol.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to get a 5.0? But than again your v6 would be faster

It probably would and the V6 might not be. All depends. A power adder V6 can make one hell of a sleeper. Especially one with an auto where the procharger's lack of torque can be made up for with a converter. Or find a turbo company that will actually deliver the product they sell unlike LPF is doing apparently.

Dyno numbers never tell the whole story. There are plenty of cars out there that can just SMOKE a dyno but will get their *** handed to them at the 1/4 by a car making much less rwhp.

A well setup V6 is a mid 12 second car all motor.
