Geez. Look at the price points, they are ALL significantly LOWER than the GT, except for the Crossfire. And the six can beat a standard crossfire.

The Ford 6 is detuned substantially, so it's just as easy, if NOT EASIER to get 400 hp out of the six, because there's more room for modifications like headers, etc.

An awful lot of them have 300+ hp for about the same price. Some have more.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
