you know... I like the front of the 06 pony package better than the GT front. I wonder if it's an easy swap out.

I know this...

but my buddy has a 91 maro... only premium and he wants a 97-98 cobra only premium and most other high performance cars like 300 plus hp use higher octane gas than good old 87

Well, I felt lucky to be getting a new car at all, and then I felt really lucky to be getting a Mustang at all, then I felt lucky to be spending less on gas and insurance, and less on the sticker price of the car, and I felt lucky to be getting mine in 4 weeks vs. 12 for the GT.

Of course, if I DID get the GT (and to be honest, sometimes I wish I had), I'd feel lucky to get that lighter alum engine, the extra two cylinders, the extra sway bar, the extra muffler, the better rims, the better tires, the better tranny (manual)...

Either way I'm happy. I was driving a '92 Saturn, and this is my first Mustang in many years. The six has wet my appetite for the GT and my next vehicle purchase will likely be a GT.

Purchasing the V6 has left room in our relationship (mine and Ford's) for more excitement in the future.

When its comes to Ford and their V-6 technology they have made dependability a key factor in what most noodles don't understand.Our first v-6 car was an English built 71'Ford Capri my dad bought in England and it lasted 210,000 miles.He drove it until 1983 and sold it to a neighbor.most v-6's don't have big hp figures but they are built for the long haul.

Poco, I dont know if you knew that the 4.6 engines are also pretty durable. They use them in the towncar limos and the crown vics police packages. I have a friend who has a repair shop and he buys 4.6's to swap out on those cars after they get 250K on them. He says limos are common to get about 250K or more. I know fords new V6 engines in their Fusions are making more horses than the 4.0 motor in the stang. I think that v6 in the fusion is more like the mazda v6 they are putting in those cars. Maybe the V6 stang will get that engine in the future.

I pretty much look at it this way. I don't need to justify why I bought what I bought to anyone but myself and my wife.

If I had friends that asked that kind of crap well they wouldn't be friends for much longer.

yes, the grill plus the smaller lights. Plus it would be kinda cool to blow by people that think I have a v6 :kooky:

Yeah I totally agree with the 4.6 durability.They are a sweet design.Evertime I see a 4.6 they never have the same heads,there is always something better or just regular 2 valve heads.its mind blowing to see a 281 cubic inch motor with unlmited potential.I think no matter which engine you get v-6 or v-8 its nice having the best of both worlds.Now if I could just talk my wife into a new Fusion I could have both.

By explaining multiple times, in a slow manner of speech, that I am a high school junior, am lucky to even have a 6, and while I have 2k worth of mods on there, it still isn't close to what a GT would have cost. My parents were willing to pay $15k on a car for me. I had to pay $8000 of the car originally, I couldn't have put up another 10 for the GT. And, by the time I'm done modding the car, it'll still be less expensive than a stock GT, and look the way I want it to.

Besides, even if I had the money, the ford dealership near us wouldn't have sold me a GT. Not because of availability issues, but because the saleswoman I bought the car from was firmly against giving a 300hp car to a 16 year old. I can respect that. Even after a year driving this car, I still make careless errors. I'm a better driver than most of my peers, and I'd be scared if they were running around in cars that fast.

Besides, since I am around highschoolers, I can usually just point out, "It's better than the POS you drive."

I have never got one single "Why didn't you ....." and I have a V6. Just "what a pretty, nice looking, you can give it to me" type comments. There's always going to be people who think you should have and if you notice they usually couldn't themselves.
