I can't believe I made that mistake a long time ago.
Bought a v6.....got attached to it and just kept trying to make it fast.
I realized a simple forged rebuild would cost me out the ass.....THEN I still had to drop another $5000k on the procharger....then I had to get it all tuned and troubleshoot it.......realistically.
Then I had to swap the Rear, Trans, Brakes, driveshaft, pay for tires......
I just realized it wasn't worth getting into debt JUST to prove a v6 can hang with v8's.......plus likely blow my motor and have all the high maintenance that comes with owning a supercharger...
Second time around I just went straight for the v8, and it only cost me $3k.
And it's cheaper/faster for the money.
I would love to get my old v6 m112 car back. The power was insane for a v6. I could run a 12 easy. and still hang with the shelbys. What i like is the satisfaction you get because mostly gt owners are cocky as hell when they see a v6.
