Default Difference between V6 & V8 Stang

Why some people prefer to purchase V6 Mustang than V8?

You will not keep your car stock for long time and in the future you will search for the performance modifications I mean the cost will be more if you plan to upgrade your V6 than purchase a V8 Stang.

Regards,

I can't tell if this is a serious post or if you're being sarcastic. I'm going to just hope it was meant to be sarcastic and comical, otherwise it would be one of the most naive things I've heard regarding the automotive market. MOST people that purchase automobiles DO NOT modify or "upgrade" it. People buy the V6 model for better gas mileage, because they have no need for a more powerful engine etc., while still having the look and feel of a traditional muscle car. If you think that everyone who buys a Mustang, Camaro etc., does so with the intention of building a powerful street machine then you really need to further your education. Different engine sizes exist so people have options for Christ sake. Parents with a 16 year old kid might opt for the V6 because their child is not mature and experienced enough to drive a more powerful car. The more I think about your question and your comment that followed it, the more frustrated I'm getting by the sheer stupidity and lack of any sort of logical thinking on your behalf. I'm sorry if you're taking offense to this but before posting something next time, make sure you know what you're talking about.

Does anyone know the weight difference between the V-6 Stang and the GT?

Can you still order V-6's without:
a/c
power windows
power locks
power seats
automatic trunk release
pretty much everything short of the bbody and drivetrain?

Uh, I'm not starting a war between the V6 and V8 Mustangs, I've owned both. I'm just pointing out how ridiculous the question was because less than 8% of the entire population of drivers add performance mods to their cars. I was starting a war against ignorant, brainless and fact-less arguments.

For those that own V8's and belittle the V6's...the 4.6L V8 isn't all that big either. Ford was putting 300ci/4.9L inline 6's in their trucks for a long time that are bigger displacement wise. My '90 Bronco has a 5.8L/351 in it (I'm the oil company's b*t*h when it comes to feeding it-OPEC likes me) so when I see threads start up debating the merits of 4.0L V6 vs 4.6L V8, I just grin.

A Mustang is a Mustang regardless of engine displacement and we don't need another 'mine is bigger than your's' thread.

If any one didn't like this subject or any other subject made by any member simply be quite or say something good.

NO NEED TO USE BAD LANGUAGE.

I respect every one’s opinion and desire to share information through this respective forum.

Sometimes its good to think about the stuuf you want to say than just say it and wait for some response.
Mustang is a Mustang no matter what size of engine, cylinder or appearance it has, they all been designed by Ford and carried the wild horse logo since 1964 to present. So they got all the same blood, one is weaker and one is stronger, its like people, some are weak and some are strong but everyone lives in a same country so they all should be respected the same. We may not mind if you say why people like Mustang over Japanese cars, but Mustang vs Mustang would not work out well. I dont blame people to get frustrated but also its good to respect each other Cheers

I'm with you on that Petey.

But what I REALLY don't understand is this: why do perfectly reasonable people refuse or fail to get


SPLASH GUARDS ?


You know you want 'em; you know you'll get 'em. So give it up already.

"To each his own".

One reason "Ben and Jerry's" is successful is they make many flavors of ice cream and than, people sometimes go ahead and put their own favorite topping on it.

I actually met both Ben and Jerry on a street corner in the SF Financial District years ago: they were giving away samples of their ice cream. As I recall, they had both a V8 and a V6 flavor - both good - but no SPLASHGUARD flavor.

What I would like to explain is that I didn't mean to insult any one or any mustang.

Please understand that I am not living in USA I am living in Saudi Arabia

So I might misunderstand some how about this car.

Splashguard flavor? that would be a combination of plastic and road grit flavors with a hint of tire rubber. Num Num.
