    Lol neither car has excessive failures at stock levels driven with any semblance of normalcy.

    Agreed, normalcy isn't necessarily satisfactory, however.

    You could clearly hear it failing several seconds before the "explosion" - that is when you lift.

    Mustang's drive shaft blew because of a resonance issue 25 mph beyond the stock speed limiter. If the genius wanted to tune the car he should also have switched driveshafts.

    I think it's great that today's v6 cars have so much potential. Hyundai is pushing the 350 hp mark and is rumored to be considering a supercharger.

    But hell, what do I know -- these days I drive a 12 year old Lincoln Continental with a Superchips tune

    They'll be supercharging the 350hp V6? Damn. That should be 400hp+.

    Indeed. I like the idea of a high hp N/A v6.

    Does it have the turbo ecotec or an NA motor?

    Yeah that's an oxymoron. Muscle car = V8. The new Ecotec turbo V6 is an awesome motor though. If I could've gotten it on my Raptor that's on order I would've taken it over the 6.2L NA V8 every day of the week and twice on Sunday! I loved it in the F-150 FX4 I drove before the Raptor. Definitely has more low-end power than the 6.2L.

    Huh? Who would ever get one over a GTR which is a VASTLY superior car. Except for the lack of a manual tranny!

    The Boss 302 is the only one I'd consider versus a GTR.

    Yes it is. That Ford Ecotec engine is awesome as I posted above. The new BMW turbos that replaced the NA straight 6 and V8 motors are awesome too, especially witih the alititude here in CO. The 335Ci I test drove back to back with a last-generation V8 M3 felt every bit as fast as the M3!

    The biggest problem with shaving weight these days is safety, which is by far the biggest reason cars are still so heavy. Second reason is the comfort features that are growing and growing.

    You wouldn't if you lived at altitude. But I agree if I lived at lower altitudes like you then I'd have a GT3RS instead of a Turbo and I'd definitely buy NA engines over turbos so I'd get the linear power!

    Heh. It's funny to see how many of you completely turned on me. I didn't know our love was so materialistic :P

    But thanks everyone for the well wishes. This car is absolutely amazing. I miss my turbo, but to be honest...not enough. I'm getting better gas mileage, using cheaper gas, throwing down more power, and picking up wayyy more chicks **** the haters lol
