I've also got wider stickier tires and a roof rack with a bike usually on top.


Get over it. It's not like you OWN a v6 mustang do you? How do you know he doesn't get what he says? Maybe he drives on the highway all day long and then goes home. He said average not mixed city and highway

There was hell to pay when someone said an SRT8 Charger managed this kind of MPG.

I think him bringing up a 5 month old thread with a false MPG claim is pointless

6 speed's get 30mpg+ on the highway with ease.

Auto GTO's are not known for being frugal.

Hmm well when you tune a car you make it much more efficent especially since I did 90 percent highway driving. You sir need to stop googling shit and posting car and driver specs on the internet.

Also that v6 mustang was not stock. A 4.10 gear is a huge difference compared to stock, and with a v8s torque compared to a v6s the multiplication of power to the wheels will be more. So essensially if you were you put a 4.10 in a gto you would wield greater results, but the everyday drivability and gas mileage would suffer much worse on the v6.

A completely stock car has absolutely no modifications, right off the showroom floor. Id like to see what a bone stock v6 stang would run with the stock 3.23 gears and street tires....

And fuck man I made 430/405 to the wheels in that gto once I put a cam headers and exhaust and ran an 11.8 with drag radials. So call it slow or shitty or whatever but real life facts are facts.

I'm still more impressed by the V-6 mustang with primarily a gear and tune nearly kissing 12's than I am by his 400+hp cammed GTO running 11's on a tire.

I also made a point to say that on strictly highway 27mpg was more believable. He confirmed now that he did mostly highway driving.

I managed nearly 20mpg out of my blown V-8 ranger on 4.10's to/from Byron. Consumer Guide got 12.4 out of the same engine on 3.73's in an explorer.

But my truck (Like GTO's) get annihilated in stop/go MPG wise.

Its not ment to impress, dont tell me what my cars can and cant do and try and discredit me based on you ungodly knowledge of GTOs.

And never once did i say the new v6 was bad and I am veryimpressed, but what Im saying is it has less potential then a v8 car. Like how you will get more power out of a v8 by adding headers, then a v6. Even adding cams ect you will net high gains from a v8. Just look at the 350zs as an example. You barely can find one with stock cubes with over 400whp N/A.


Id love to see the weight reduction on the cars also, because thats very important

Your post came off as a "My car is faster and gets the same MPG as a V-6 mustang, what's the big deal" kinda thing. Especially since the thread has been dead for 5 months.

I apologize.

My car with just as many cylinders as yours, no turbo, and no modifications might be able to run in the 16's

What was the point of this post? Your car had nearly the same power as my truck when I made my runs. My truck WAS a dog.

No worries. Just like to defend the GTO that everyone thinks is so shitty.

but while this video impresses me with the power output

the gains are very minimal for a full exhaust compared to a v8. I personally gained 48 hp and 27 ft/lbs from long tubes and free flowing exhaust on the gto
from 334 to 382whp and 350 to 377 wft/lbs

I almost bought one, but couldn't deal with the trunk, and both transmissions had drawbacks I didn't like (And I had no intentions of modifying it). I didn't like the feel of the 6 speed and the autos get horrid MPG out of the box. Ended up with a 05 GT 5 speed mustang which I promptly lost in flooding.

You were comparing a v6 with 2 mods against a v8 with plenty of mods. I had a similar comparison.

Not really? My V-8 did not have plenty of mods... NOW it does.

You just like ragging on my slow truck

the 4l65e is a great trans, and so is the t56. Ultimately the stock clutches take a lot of abuse being a heavier car. Its really all in the tune, since HP tuner can tune the trans like it should have from the factory.

you didn't like the feel of a transmission that's used in everything from vettes to vipers to cobras?

Do your research. The shifter is known to be balky/vauge in the GTO application.

Not saying its a weak transmission, or a poorly designed transmission, or a poorly geared transmission. The shifter didn't feel as direct as it did in my mustang for example.

And I doubt you'd even fit in any of the cars listed so I'm sure you don't know what it feels like first hand...

What's your problem? I asked a serious question, followed by "lolwut" , seeking clarification to my question because maybe you see something differently and I was curious.. an immature low blow was not warranted.

I have "done my research", I've looked at these cars. I don't notice the "vague" feeling and to me it feels like a well-planted, confident shifter. Different strokes.
