how in the hell!?

Honestly...how did i get beat by a jetta!? well maybe it had something to do with the 2 lane road that went to one lane and i didnt know about it but obviously he did, so I slowed down a little thinking playtime was over and all of a sudden he comes flying by me so i floor it and we go for about 50 meters and then the lane I was in merged into his lane and i wasnt far enough ahead of him to get over...I lost! but since i caught him right before the lanes merge, i geuss my car is faster 8)

dont underestimate jettas. esp the wrong jettas. they can be made quick and are decently quick for what they are.

Member your 6-er can get beat by a mini van if it honestly came down to it

Some Jettas are turbo charged. And I think its called a VR6 which is a Jetta with a 6cyl. in it. Not quite sure.

Those VR6's are pretty quick man. A friend of mine has a VR6 in a Little VW Rabbit... And he spank can spank a GT (he has time slips to prove it ). They're bada$$ fast litle engines when mixed with the right vehicle.

VW's aren't Civics man. Be careful.

Well, Civics can be made fast too -- stock for stock, I'd go with the Mustang winning.

I dont really care man. I mean I buy a car because it looks good and is fast. I dont want a maxima or a jetta. I want a car that has history. Thats what a mustang is.

We all gotta take our loses even if a few of us don't like to admit it (Like myself) I'm quite surprised the jettas do so well.

Not true, you build them right and they can be fast. It's all in how it's built and how you drive it.

Speed is relative to the cost of a vehicle. a 94-98 V6 stang when it was built was fairly quick for that period and would run with most imports and domestic's with equal engine size at the time. in 99 once again more HP but it need it to compete with the Imports and domestics that had also increased HP.

what gets me is that with a 96-98 V6 stang going for anywhere from 4500 to 6500 they are quite attractive for modding. There really is few cars out there with the potential of the v6 stang for the same money and have a Mustang an American Icon

funny, but good point... it's not so much that jettas or other cars are pretty good (stock) it's just that the v6 mustang is so embrassingly slow from the factory.

Hey a 99+ stock v6 5spd runs an avg of a 15.6 in the 1/4 I dont consider that slow for a stock v6 from factory. Hell some of the old gts could barely do that. The 94-98 gt ran mid to low 15's stock so with just very little modding your fast then some of the factory gt's. Trust me I know I use to own a 1996 gt and got beat by a 02 v6 5spd that right there is what turned me on too the 6. From what I hear though it'l like night and day between the auto and stick in a v6 mustang when its stock.

if i could afford a gt i would get one... no, actually i can...if i could afford the insurance then i would get one. the reason i say v6s are emarissingly slow is because i'm always having to work real hard to keep up with imports, and i'm not talking about other sports cars, i mean family sedans, it's so frustrating...believe me my '94 is slow as ****! and about gts, they're so overrated. their fast but not that fast... i still can't beleive the fact that 4 cyl. engines are putting out more hp than engines twice their size...any way i guess if i had a gt or cobra it would be the greatest thing for a while at least. it all comes down to: 'the more i have, the more i want'.

Well widowvirgin lets see you have said quite alot but lets look at the big picture.

First off Honda, Toyota, Nissian just to name a few are or were predominately 4 cylinder companies. There 6 and 8 cylinder vehicles are made for the US market. They have been making steadly making more and more out Hp out of these small engines. Also with this is the design of there cars to be light and cheap to a degree.

American car companies did not bother for a while even competing in the high perfomance 4 cylinder market because American were fascinated with the V8 muscle type cars. And really with the exception of a few compact performance cars like the SRT-4 and the SVT Focus they still are not that interested.

You have to remember the American public still prefer Trucks and SUV's over all other vehicles combined. Sport compacts are faced with diminishing customers. The average person really wanting one of these cars is 16 - 24 after that people move to larger more pratical cars. Being that most of these cars are bought by Parents compounds the problem. If it were highly profitable to make High performance compacts more would made. for every SRTY-4 sold hundreds of base model neon will be sold.

As for the V6 mustang we are a base model car to fill a large nitch for mustang styling at a affordable price. Most V6 owners will never race or mod there car. With the low cost of the V6 mustang you are really getting a fairly nice car. A 94 V6 mustang might be slow today but when it was built almost nobody was building V6 performance parts. The internet has provided us with the means to join other V6 ownewrs in a quest for performance and our comunity is growing and so are the aftermarket parts.

I personally have enjoyed modding my cars to terrorize the import crowd. My car is not slow any more and really it did not take that much to do it!!!!

Mustangs are a American Icon no matter what motor is in it. For the money it is a good car and easy to mod!!!!

don't get me wrong. i love my stang (not necessarily my v6) my dream car is the '97 s351. to me that is the greates car ever made. and the mustang is the nicest looking car ever i don't care what anybody says! and as far as v6 owners not modifying their cars...look at how many v6 forums there are! maybe what i mean is that i greatly admire the engineering of import car makers and how they stuff so much power in small engines, it's so convenient, smaller engines allow for lighter cars with makes them more agile and quicker. i did say that the s351 was my dream car because of its performance numbers, but if you can get the same 500hp out of a v6 than why have a bigger engine. now that i think about it, i would prefer modding out my v6. not only can i get a very fast car but it will also handle better than a gt. right or wrong?

That is correct and its one reason why I went with a v6. The weight balance is almost perfect like most imports. So building up a 6 with say 500hp and put it up against a v8 with 500hp in the long run yes the 8 would take it. More then likely the 6 will take it in the 1/8th and 1/4. Throw both cars on a road track and the 6 will take it all day long. It's all about the power to weight ratio in the long run. But once that 8 gets going it'll be a very hard race to win.

since we are talking theoretically here, if they are both putting out the same amount of hp, then why would the 8 beat the 6 in the long run?
