    I like the look of the Mustang better so that's my vote. :)

    Not just domestics! Had a 2001 Millenia S, wonderful car before mazda killed off the line. 2.3L miller cycle with 210hp. I like the whine! Plus, I think for the most part (but obviously not all cases) supers are easier to tune and achieve a linear power band from as opposed to a finicky turbo. Plus they're a cleaner install.. no need for wastegates or blowoff valves or turbo manifolds etc etc, and power is instantaneous. But turbos do have the edge in terms of efficiency and sheer power output.

    Is this even debatable? Mustang wins with better mileage with excellent power, and 30k less!!! :p I'm actually considering purchasing the Mustang, but I'm not sure yet. I've stayed away from them for their notoriously bad mileage. But 31 mpg. That's crazy for a Mustang.

    31mpg applies to the V6.

    Yes I know. That's obvious. It's still a 300+ HP engine.

    Yeah, which is a great improvement over the last V6 Mustang which only had 200 horses. The V6 is actually decent for once!

    Toss in a CAI, Exhaust and Tune and the 2011 V6 Mustang would fly!

    with the same suspension and transmission as the GT, mind you. many reviewers have commented saying Ford has greatly improved handling and responsiveness in the new Mustangs, as well has a VERY MUCH improved engines from both cars, though, the v6 is a MUCH needed improvement that people have been complaining about for years.

    i have a 1998 6 banger mustang, so perhaps I can trade that in for the new v6, though i'm not taking the 31mpg automatic models. i'm perfectly content with 29 mpg and 308 hp. the GT is too expensive for me to afford, but at least that v6 is much more desireable than previous iterations.

    Just talked it over with the fiance, she's on board with my GT 5.0 plan... :D

    I'm considering the brembo package and the 3.55 gears... I'm pretty excited!

    Color choices..? premium package? stripes? trim?

    It's a good day!

    just figure if you put a mild blower on there you'll easily be pushing 600+ hp.

    that's silly performance for a single bolt on for a 30K car.
