The V8 feel better thread.

Hopefully this won't get locked or deleted.

It seems the v8 owners don't understand that we (v6 owners) keep them in v8 cars. It also seems they don't understand that 6 pushrod cylinders will also beat them with the correct mods. I'm not trying to flame or argue, but a good discussion never hurt anybody right? And maybe all the v8 banter can go here when they feel like they need to feel better and bash us v6 owners.

Anyway here is my car vs a supercharged s197

V6's are still mustangs and I never fail to compliment a nice v6 when I see a nice one. I know a couple v6's that could put up a GOOD run against my GT

I hate people that bash v6's they just make an *** out of themselves. V6's are great and I'm betting if it wasn't for us mustangs sales would be so low they might would quit making them? Mustangs are mustangs no matter the motor. Screw the haters

Re: The V8 feel better thread.

although i agree that v6's are great for what they are...i can also wee why some people hate from time to time..if they aren't use to something then they can react weird...think about all the people that hate on 4 bangers...i use to rip on them until i started learning about what it is that some people like about them. a car is a car no matter what engine it is..and they can all be fun if done right

Moved to the bar as there is no technical value here.

You guys are very correct, without non-v8 sales over the years there would be no Mustangs...

Be careful not to become the guy/gal you hate..

Re: The V8 feel better thread.

I will admit, I hate on a v6 with GT or Cobra emblems.....

Because that just makes ALL mustang owners look bad when some 06+ civic Si beats a 99 v6 with cobra badges and now the civic forums is plastered with "beat cobra today, not sure what year but had cobra badges twin tips out back loud blah blah"

Funny thing is, 95% of the car people know its a re-badged car. Must be a "for me" thing.

I hate over badging (gt emblems on a v6) i do like under badging tho. Having v6 emblems and like a 5.0 or 5.4svt engine in there would be a bad sleeper. I love sleepers

No hate on sixxers from this guy! I wouldn't have a GT if there was no sixxers.

I think that most people do realize that there wouldn't be a mustang if there were no sixxers, but it's just like the saying, the few ruin it for the many. Only a couple really bash but then all v8 owners are automatically seen as haters. It's all good though, I'm sure the bashing does get old

I am a v8 person, but I will never talk bad about a v6. I just prefer the v8 because of the sound and other extras that come along with it. I don't tend to race, maybe I'll go through second, but never more than that. A v6 can be just as good or better than a v8, if it is done correctly.

I don't hate on V6s but I do keep things in perspective!.. Modify your car the way you want and so it can be the best it can be!.. And enjoy your car for what it is!.. Your blood, sweet, tears, and imagination is what made it!.. Everyone has their own opinion as to what makes the perfect ride!.. And when you ask for other opinions, expect to get a little butt hurt!.. And when that happens!.. DONT GET BUTT HURT!.. You asked for it in the first place!.. I have seen just as much Hate from the V6 crowed on here as I have seen from the V8s!.. If all you have is hate for one or the other then keep your mouth shut!.. But if you have an opinion then share it when "asked for" and make it clear it's just your opinion!..

I am building my 2004 Mustang GT, to be the best IT can be!.. And into something that I like and enjoy driving!.. What ever cars are on here that are better than mine (either V6 or V8), that's fine by me!.. And what ever cars mine is better than needs to be fine by "you"!..

Don't build your cars to be better than the other guy!.. That won't ever happen because there will always be someone better and with deeper pockets too!.. Build it the way you want and with the goal of making it better than what it was!.. You will be happier in the end!..

When I first started modding my cars I did it with the goal of beating the "other guy"!.. And anytime I lost (in the beginning happened more often than not), I would get pissed!.. I wasn't happy!.. So I started building the way I wanted, and just to make the car better than what it was!.. Now I'm happy with my ride!.. I'm not done with it, and never will be!.. But I'm happy with it!..
