    one of the questions:

    The following engine specifications are the same as you saw previously, except that information on engine displacement and number of cylinders has been added. Given this new information, what would be your engine preference?
    Engine X - 4.6L V8, 300 Horsepower, 0-60 in 5.8 seconds with fuel economy of 17/22, base price
    Engine Y - 5.0L V8, 370 Horsepower, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds with fuel economy of 17/23, $1000 more than X
    Engine Z - 3.5L V6, Twin Turbo, 370 Horsepower, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds with fuel economy of 19/25, $1000 more than X,

    :noes:

    engine Y. why? a stock TT v6 that puts out 370hp. modability would be good, maybe run a single turbo, beef up the block, be on your merry way. probably could get that engine to put out 5-600 hp when you were done. but you have a stock NA 5.0L V8 that puts out 370hp. modability seems to be greater on this. properly done it could crack the 7-800hp mark for probably the same cost as doing up the TT v6.


    would not care if engine was made outside the US. fords branches seem to be more reliable than the ford line itself.

    20" wheels - excessive and a waste of money. larger wheel = more to turn one revolution = more fuel consumption
    Adaptive cruise control - possibly
    Heated and cooled cupholders - fuck that
    Independent rear suspension - yes
    6 speed transmission - yes, better fuel mileage
    Heated washer fluid - who drives a mustang in the dead of winter? (im talking about northern winters where it gets fucking cold and snowy and RWD sucks a nut)
    Paddleshift on the steering wheel (allowing you to change gears from the steering wheel) - fuck that
    Rear park assist - if you cant park a car by yourself, you shouldnt be driving a car
    Rear video Camera - same as above

    THe mustang would lose total street cred with a GT V6.. but dam a TT one would mean so much power.. assuming the motor wasn't like the 99 cobra ones :o

    20" staggered should be an option with a 10" wheel in back.. and a 9 " in front, coupled with a great braking package and proper suspension work for handling and appearance..

    the 6 speed should also be utilized, fuck you can get a dam toyota pickup with this now, get with the times people.

    That cars interior is horrid.. i couldn't buy one based on that..

    on top of the fact the stock wheel selections and the tire combos are HORRID.. :barf: your car has the best looking ones IMO..

    what happened to aggressive wheels.. i mean its a Mustang GT.. king of the streets.. not your grandmotehrs car with 65 series tires on it.. :rofl:

    it has 50 series tires :o

    and the interior is FINE. Absolutely nothing to complain about except the lack of a sunroof option.

    so you would never buy a TT V6. even though it made the SAME power.. and got better fuel economy.. and you could probably be pushing over 400 with simple things you would have already changed on the V8?
