Seeing as how 75% of Mustangs sold are 6ers, the GT would likely cost as much or more than a G35 if we sixers didn't subsidize GT production.

Ford would more likely lose the 8 than the 6, especially considering the new 3.5L can be stroked to 4.0Ls and make far over 300 hp.

Heck, the 3.8L is capable of making 260+ hp with a little intake/exhaust and cam work -and that's a relatively mild street cam.

The 4.0L isn't as strong as the 3.8/4.2L -perhaps they'll do some block work before ending production, but the new 3.5L will make all of us cry.



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
