BTW...welcome to the forums Emig5m. I see your first post is the one above.
^Thanks for the welcome. Yea I know the thread is old but I always try to gather as much info on a purchase before buying so when I started considering the V6 I started reading up on it and found this thread. Also, since normally I would buy V8's and have driven ones with 500+ horsepower, I wanted give my opinion on how I thought the V6 is still a great car depending on how you plan to drive it and in case someone else new like me pops around it doesn't hurt to get more opinions to help other people make decisions.

My cousin stopped in yesterday afternoon and was like- "Please tell me you didn't just get a non-SS RS". When I explained what I bought it for (commuting, daily driving, and that I already had a muscle toy V8 I was free to play with/mod/etc... and leave home and save gas and everything he totally understood my point of view.)

But if you're buying for a play toy, definitely gotta have a V8 stick! They're fun!! But me anymore, even the Lightning all I do is dog around with it, I just wanna put it in drive, kick back and cruise.... mellow, lol. But I like having a nice looking eye catching vehicle. The V6 with the RS package fit the bill perfectly!

It feels so different when you mod it up tune, Vararm, portted throttle body, RX isolator

Agreed. I'm not gonna compare it to a 500+ HP mustang of course, but my V6 is my nice day only car and it sure does make me happy

Its an amazing motor for a V6 but there are a ton of cars more faster and powerful then it.
I don't care what car you have, there always is another car that is better or faster. Buy the car you wnat and spend whatever you want to make it more your own.

"enough power" for what purpose? It has enough power to kill you, but not so much that it feels like its trying to kill you.

It's faster than 98 percent of the cars on the road. The question really is does it have enough power for your purpose.

My v6 does - but I'm sad my version was only offered in v6, I would have opted for the v8 if available.

I've picked off a few GT's and older Z28's and a GTO with my mods. I love the looney V6 exhaust note and it's pretty fun to drive. About to get a whole lot funner.

Smile Speed Quesion???

I can assure you that the six can get as many tickets as the big bad 8 and the up front cost is such that you can afford to pay them with the savings

Wow plenty of power, any one would be proud to drive and own it.

Just remember"Drive what you can afford" and do not keep up with the JONES.

Good luck, let me know when you get it.
This.
