Not to be argumentative, but Ill say again. "there is no substitute for cubic inches, except cubic money" A V6 is not a V8. It will never feel or sound like one either, no matter how much money, or modifications you pour into it.

The 3.7 liter Mustang is a great car. But if you are hard set on competing with V8's, you might well be advised to save your money and get what you are looking for.
I drive both. And both are fabulous. The 3.7 V6,is an awesome little powerplant. But it will never rival the 5.0 regardless of what you might read , or hear.
Again, no intention to provoke argument. But it is , what it is .At least, in the real world.

I would suggest to anyone who feels that there are no significant differences between a 3.7, and a 5.0, to drive each of them. Then return to the internet forums to speculate.

I just read that GM is bringing back the GN & the GNX for 2015. That little 3.8 embarrassed a lot of cars with more cubes, & they intend to do it again. I can only hope Ford is into the same frame of mind. That would be very interesting. Also, this thread got off track with some folks telling the OP that he should have "bought a 5.0" That was not the question. If you can`t answer a question with something constructive to what is being asked, just move on without comment. Nobody likes a smart azz. It must be the moon phase or something, but lately there have been a raft of members that have decided to do things "their" way instead of following the rules here. I have given them averything from a couple of days off, right up to outright banning & will continue to do so to those who want to do things their way around here. As has been stated (more tan once), there are no first amendment rights here. You either follow the rules or you are gone. We have over 160,000 members. We won`t miss some who want to do things "their" way.
