Sometimes I feel like you spend your days actively planning and coming up with obtuse, asinine things to say.It's just not worth it to me to spend most of my time in a car with nothing to separate it from any other V6 shit box on the road. Might as well leave it in the garage.
:lol:Now, now. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.Sometimes I feel like you spend your days actively planning and coming up with obtuse, asinine things to say.
To imply that there's really nothing different between the TTV6 in the GT and Raptor and "any other V6 shit box on the road" just indicates you're either utterly ignorant (and happily so) or an obnoxious troll.
My point is, you're are basically saying a V8 would of been better. Ford decided to use the 3.5 ecoboost because of many reasons.How in the hell did you get that out of what I was saying? I do not like the sound.
Then I asked you if you had your pick of a V8 and the ecoboost, you would put the ecoboost in? Ford has their reasons and I respect them and actually give them props for having the balls to drop a ecoboost in a super car. But that doesn't mean that a V8 would have been worse.....
So I V8 wouldn't have performed better? Got it.My point is, you're are basically saying a V8 would of been better. Ford decided to use the 3.5 ecoboost because of many reasons.
1) to prove it could be done
2) because of marketing
3) it's used in other vehicles
4) it's more efficient than a V8
5) it's lighter
6) it's durable
7) makes great hp and tq
If I were building the same car I would also probably go with the same engine for the same reasons above. Does a V8 sound better? Absolutely! Would a V8 perform better? I doubt it. It won Lemans! They proven what they needed.
If I were building my very own gt500 I'd do the following.
A10 or sequential 6 speed
Total weight of 3200-3300 pounds
All aluminum construction
But if ford puts a 3.5L ecoboost in the next gt500 I'll be in line for one also. I'm not judging a car on its exhaust note.
Zane. How would you know. They don't offer a V8 as an option. The ecoboost GT BEAT V8 cars.So I V8 wouldn't have performed better? Got it.
If you were to listen to the fear mongering put on by opponents of suppressors...you'd think they were more lethal.Does a gun with a silencer kill less then one without?
