It's ok that you got a 3.7 because you want it to look fast. I just think your trying to convince yourself that it is fast.

What's fast? What's your definition of fast? Fast compared too what? Fast compared to a top fuel car?? Define fast too you?

Just a near stock 3.7

Hello all, new to the forum.
Since there seems to be an introduction form i'll start mine...

Lease ended with '12 Focus hatch and bought a '16 GT prem.

Yes i have the PP for the simplicity of already having these items installed and having my fun to and from work.

My only gripe about the car is the sound quality of the radio coming from a focus with an overhauled system, and the oh-so-smooth gear changes. Though i do have the steeda spring on it's way.

I wasn't either till i saw this in white, and coming from a tuxedo black focus and f150, i can't take care of a black daily driver. Too much work for me.

Thanks for the invite but my wife and i are expecting a baby any time now. I'll be busy for a while. Hahah.

I'm still loving my 5.0. Every day I drive it, just makes my day that much better. Can't wait till I have more funds to mod it. But for now it will just be cheaper touch-up items.

You're comparing apples to oranges... Don't make Kona Blue come in here and start talking chicken nuggets...
I'm just saying! Those get FI and no one says "Should've gotten American muscle if you wanted power, these cars are only meant for turns. Way to waste your money noob."

I don't want to take Kona Blue's position, but when you guys compare cars are you taking everything into consideration?
Weight, tq, hp, etc.?

I love my 5.0 but i'd take a 370z also.
Have you seen the one that was built to compete with Godzilla?

Not all V6s are made equal... just because they have the same amount of cylinders doesn't mean they will perform the same... Would you prefer a V6 engine built by Chevy? Or a V6 built by Porsche?

If I had to choose, I would take the 370z's V6 over a S197's V6... then again I would never want a N/A V6 car to begin with. It's dangerous being on the freeway with such a lack of passing power!

370Zs are about half a second quicker than a V6 Stang, but FI a 5.0 and you will net more power regardless.

So Nissans are then by most people's logic, by default they not built for drag racing and doing it for that purpose would be stupid and a waste of money.

Or am I missing something?

Well, Porsche has a V6 for the Cayenne; but I don't think SUVs were part of the discussion. Sorry, I'm weird when it comes to Porsche.

So do you guys only have interest in 5.0s and v8s?
Or do you all enjoy talking about other vehicles as well?
Trying to catch the vibe from you guys other than ragging on Kona Blue.
Which i like so far.

I think the majority of s550 owners are out there driving their cars and the rest of us that want to be on the forum have to deal with casual morons and opinionated S197 owners.

Beats doing laundry I guess.

Or awkwardly explaining simple concepts to Kona.
