I'd keep the GT350, and get a daily of some kind. If you are seriously considering a Stinger, look at the Genesis G70 with the 3.5tt option. Same engine as the stinger, much nicer interior if you are thinking about comfort. Kia is Hyundai's cheap brand...What are yall thoughts if I can get a fully loaded Stinger GT2 at 46k price tag?(54k msrp) Would that make a difference? Right now I am leaning towards keeping to GT350 tho
Isn't that what every factory turbo car owner saysstingers are gettin quick out there...couple of mods and suddenly 400whp.
The 6.4 Apache's are very different motors from the earlier 5.7's. It's as much of a leap as going from a 4.6 Modular to a Gen3 Coyote. They both might be Hemi's/Modular's, but they are worlds apart. The one thing I will say is that they don't hold up under boost. more than 6psi is asking for them to blow up. There's also not a lot of NA power to be had without working the bottom end. At factory spec though, they will run all day. The only "safe" power option is to do a forged bottom-end/stroker build. Bulit 426 blocks can go nuts with boost, and larger bore strokers like a 448 can put down 600 wheel, all motor.Serious question…
Have the newer Hemi’s become more reliable?
we bought an ‘07 5.7 Charger when the wife fell in love with it at a display at a motorcycle race. Ordered it just the way she wanted it.
Around 80K miles our new, very good mechanic told us to sell before we hit 90K due to the engine failures. We care for our cars and chalked the statement up to poor maintenance.…94K and the engine went. After we traded it in I spoke to a friend who’s an engine builder and he told me he could have fixed and rebuilt stronger than ever. He knew of the problem. Lesson learned.
Considering trading my GT350 for a fully loaded Stinger GT2. GT350 is my only daily and I want something more comfortable. Is it bad idea to make this decision? Any long term financial and performance advice? I know that stinger will get me less performance but bit more comfort and comfort is only reason Im considering as daily driver.
Owned a 2018 Rallye Red Type R for a year and only sold it because I was transferred some ~2000 miles away and had too many cars to transport to my new home.Lol. Y’all gotta roll with the humor man. On a serious note, I’d find a Civic Type R before I ever considered a Kia Stinger.
Compared to a GT350 there is very little that is special. But that is what OP asked about and that's what the answer was for.The Stinger initially may be a lot of car for the money but at the end of the day it is still a Kia that is equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission and provides nothing really special from a performance standpoint compared to a 2nd generation GT350.
If you are only looking at two year value, then leasing makes a lot more sense. What's a regular Mustang GT worth after two years. Same thing.Just as important, how much do you think that your Kia Stinger will be worth from a trade in or private sale after just two years of ownership?
Agreed that the GT350 is a special vehicle and based on the OP's question there is no doubt that it would be a huge downgrade not only in the performance arena but from a long term investment.Compared to a GT350 there is very little that is special.
