The new 2015 lights look more like the original '65 lights than any other model to me and I really like em. I like the rear of the 2015 way more than I like the front!

+1. At first I didn't like the rear, but now I feel exactly what you said here and love it.

I disagree when comparing how many aftermarket parts are available for the GT. There really aren't that many options for anything other than axle/catbacks and CAIs performance wise.

That's all it really needs though. If you want more power than exhaust/intake mods and a tune, buy a GT.

That's all it needs? According to who? I would think many V6 owners would love to see a larger aftermarket selection of parts. And, as you should know, not everyone can fork out the money for a GT. They buy the lesser expensive V6 and mod it as funds allow.

What parts are you looking for? I'm sure if they thought they could sell enough of them, they would.

It just doesn't make sense to spend $7k-$10k on a V6, to make a V6 that's performing at a level close to a stock GT.

That's my point. The V6 doesn't have the same aftermarket support. And, if I had $7-10,000 to spend on my V6, it would far surpass the performance of a stock GT.

The difference between a V6 and a GT is a lot more than the engine. Most of the suspension, handling parts, etc. are beefier. If you're going to drop almost $10k into a V6 it makes a lot more sense to save and get a GT to start with.

IF you can afford a GT. Keep in mind the V6 costs less as far as insurance goes. I paid $18,800 for my PP 2012 brand new. As you know, the PP is pretty much a GT with a V6 power plant. Hell, I could put nitrous on it and out run a GT for a whole lot less than a new GT would have cost me. Either way, I would like to see more options for the V6 and I'm sure others would as well. One of the reasons I'm looking into a '15 ecoboost is I believe it will receive a lot more attention and support from the aftermarket.

Exactly my point. And whenever I make it I seem to rile up V6 owners who think they are getting left out with a small aftermarket. First, they have not SEEN a small aftermarket. Second, the reason the V6 isn't as well supported is literally the point above and what I already said. There is a point where it makes 0 sense to mod the V6 anymore because for the $$$ of the mods plus the car to get it to GT power, you could have just bought a GT.

You contradict yourself.

Hmmm, so based on your logic, if someone with a GT wanted to make the power and have the performance of a GT500, they should have just bought a GT500? Hell, you'd spend just as much on the GT to get it to GT500 specs, am I right?

Why on earth would you build a car as your budget allows and make it your own when you can just go buy it? I mean, everyone can afford the lump sum of cash.

1- How do I contradict myself?

2- Nobody is talking about a lump sum of cash. If anything, it should be easier for someone to afford a $27k GT car payment and a $400 tuner than a $20-$22k V6 car payment and then having to pay for all the goodies out of pocket to try to get up to the stock 350rwhp level of the GT (which isn't going to happen). It adds up quick.

3- Comparing modding a $20k v6 with parts to make it almost as fast as a $27k V8 to modding the $27k V8 to beat the crap out of the $65K+ GT500 is lulzy.

Again, I am not ragging on the V6, it is a great vehicle, I would love to own one and probably will wind up getting one as a DD for me or the wife and definitely do bolt ons to make it more fun to drive and to be able to get the hell around the 95% of idiots on the road who drive with their heads up their ***.

But if you are serious about going fast and want to go to the 1/4 track on the weekends and get some respectable times it makes no sense to not start off with the GT especially since you can get a basically brand new garage queen GT for the same price as a new V6. Or just finance the extra $5k for a V8. If you can't afford it you can't afford it. Why do you think I'm driving a 2V right now? And I also understand that building THAT platform is an effort in futility vs the Coyote as well even with the big modular aftermarket.

If you can't afford a GT, but can afford a new V6 to put $7k into over a couple of years, it still makes no sense. You're better off driving the V6 for a couple of years and then trading it in on a used GT.

Yup and for what, about $6k? Still less than a GT and will smoke it.

Oh and, some people like to be different and have something other than a GT.
We haven't even begun to talk about those that mod their GTs and spend more than just going out and buying a GT500, just to underperform said GT500.

If you spend 30k on your GT and can't out perform a GT500, you're doing it wrong.

Once again, comparing a $22k and $27k car and which one is better to start with vs a $27k and $65k car is not the same thing... It does not take much to get a Coyote to match a GT500, definitely not $35k or even half that...

The LPF cars are great, shows just how much boost makes up for displacement and how strong the 3.7 internals are. Ford also got it right by making the V6 and GT basically identical down to the fuel system and driveline except for the motor.

Again, I'm not saying that the V6 is bad, I think they are great, but if you are going for all out power you are going to be better off with the Coyote. Especially with the 2015s that use the Boss stuff in all 5.0s.

What I'm really looking forward to seeing is what ppl start doing with the 4 banger stanger coming out. I also look forward to being able to say "4 banger stanger" much more often.

Well thanks bro. Ha ha ha! On a follow up to your thoughts and views I have too totally agree and elaborate. You can buy a 2014 3.7 now for like 18k. A 5.0 is gonna cost at least 26k. Not everybody is in a financial situation to afford the additional monthly payment on borrowing the extra 8k. So buy the 3.7 and as time goes on an financial securities become better, then begin mod and build the V6 up.

The 3.7 engine is as good of a platform to build as compared to the 3V, 4.6 motor. For 6000k one can get a supercharger and good dyno tune that will instantly give 400 plus rwhp. The stock 5.0 is around 360 rwhp and still 2k more. Now take that extra 2k and begin to put bolt on mods and your easily at 440-450 rwhp all for 8k. You now have a 450 rwhp pony all for the same price as a 5.0 that has 360 rwhp.

400 plus rwhp 5.0's are a common, dime a dozen but a 400 plus rwhp V6 not so common. Full of rare awesomeness.

I have a 2011 3.7 with 41,xxx miles and own it outright. I have zero payments on it. If I wanted to purchase a 2014 Gt it would cost me at lest 26k. If I sold my 2011 3.7 I maybe could get 16k and that's a maybe. Considering one can get a 2014 V6 for 18-19k I would be lucky to get 16k for mine.

It would cost me an additional 10k out of my pocket to own a 5.0. Do you know what 10k would get me in aftermarket mods. I could have a fully forged, supercharged 700 plus rwhp V6 along with suspension upgrades all for that same 10k it would cost to buy a 2014 5.0.

I know which one I would rather have.

I keep saying that I love the V6 Mustangs they are great cars and it would be pretty hilarious to smoke a Vette or SS or Coyote in one and see the look on the owner's face when you pop the hood and its a Cyclone lol.

Just did some banging around the USAA car buying app and here is what it was:

V6 base manual with 0 options - $18,600 5 year loan at 1.99% APR is $330

V8 base manual with 0 options - $26,500 5 year loan at 1.99% APR is $466

So the 5.0 is an extra $130 a month plus whatever the insurance and gas is. For a budget, yes this can be a deal breaker. If you are throwing more than $200/mo at mods though...

A fully optioned out V6 Premium is going to be at or damn near at a base model V8 in price. But then you get all the cool gadgets and tech so it really all depends on the person in the end. Ford did get it right this time at least with making the rest of the car damn near identical besides the motor.

In all honesty that argument has been done to death. Its not a bad argument, I could Coyote swap my 2V and have no car payment and $20/mo insurance for way less than the cost of a new GT and blow the doors off a new GT. I still might do that. There are plenty of $3k foxes with a few bolt ons and a 150 shot or a cheap DIY JY turbo that run 10s or 11s and eat a few motors every season. Every single forum there is you'll see ppl going "well I can build a car that will kick the crap out of XYZ for way less".

Again, its all in the owner and what they want to do. A V6 Premium with all the bells and whistles is going to be right at base GT prices. A used 2011 GT goes for the price of a nicely upgraded new 2014 V6 and a used 2011 V6 with 18k miles is listed near me for $16k which is actually a screaming good deal IMO. Makes me kind of think of selling my 2V, using that $$$ to pay off the rest of one of our other cars and then pick up a 2011 V6 for a DD on my 60 mile daily round trip commute. Like I said, I have 0 against the V6s.

Wow, 16k for an 11 V6 with 18k miles on it. That's cheap. Great deal. Someone buys that for 16k then puts in 10k of mods, that will be awesome. Once that engine is forged, the boost can be yanked up to a good bit and make some serious power. Of course at the end of the day one will still have a V6 and not a V8. Some people like myself don't get caught up in how many cylinders does the car have. I personally don't care but some do and nothing wrong with that.

Now, if the goal is to have a 400 rwhp car right from jump and want to keep it N/A, the 5.0 is where one needs to be.

In all honesty if someone wants dyno numbers a used 07-09 GT500 for $28k is where its at. Slap on a 13/14 TVS And then you get to have a limited edition yadda yadda making 750+.

From everything I read on the LPF stuff, he pulled the motor at 600whp, not because it popped but because he was sick of waiting for it to pop and he wanted to crank it way up. This was all on stock Cyclone heads/cams/intake AFIAK. Thing sounds like a diesel truck tho lol. I've been looking at the procharged ones too but the torque numbers seem much lower than the turbo guys are getting with a few exceptions.

In all honesty I really have 0 idea why anyone would mess with a pre-2011 car at this point. If someone told me I needed to choose between a NA 4V or a 05-10 3V or a 11 V6 it would be the 11 without a second thought. That's another reason I am so interested in the 2015 Ecoboost. I'm not a big fan of the looks but it'll be the lightest one and will have the turbo right from the factory. I see an easy 400-450whp out of that thing from the aftermarket and 35+mpg which might just be a reason for anyone considering a leftover 2014 V6 to wait. If they can stomach the way the 2015 looks anyway.

I still maintain if you are a serious drag racer or a roll racer and want to compete for realz the Coyote is where you want to be though. The LPF car at 500+ running 10.7s is nucking futs out of a V6, I don't think anyone thought the Cyclone was THIS good but a stock longblock Coyote with the On3 kit will be going much faster than that and a forged one will be low 9s. Not that most ppl driving on the street need a single digit ride...

I agree on the eco. I think there will be much more aftermarket support for them. I can't wait to see what they'll do.

That's so old school, outdated thought process. The replacement for displacement is technology.
