Re: F6 or GT-P

Well for me it's got to be the GTP nothing like the sound of a big V8-but i might be a bit biased LOL

I would take a GTP anyday over the F6, i love V8's, especially the sound they make, and am not overly fussed about the better performance of the turbo.
If i want that kind of performance "simple" i would put a blower on my V8, and i am just waiting to see when someone puts a positive displacement blower on the Boss how hard they actually go.

Re: F6 or GT-P

Even though I think that F6 is set to be something Ford will strive in sales with, and that the power rating, bang for buck, and all the rest is something to be pretty proud of, I chose the GT-P

I like my eights, I like the sound of them, I love the GT-P wheels, and most of all, I just think the GT-P consists of much more of a package, albeit joining a rather steep price.

Though if my budget stretched only as far as an F6, I'd have no problems in taking ownership, nor would I regret it.

Re: F6 or GT-P

i selected F6, then GT-P, then back to F6.. finally settling on the GT-P!
My reasoning is that once the f6 is out the gt-p will no doubt have a power boost..... thats why i'll take the gt-p series 2!

If i was serious about getting a turbo falcon. I'ld get the xr6turbo out of warranty (wait 2-3 years) and get a stupidly quick kit (dreaming?)

Re: F6 or GT-P

If you'd be happy with the stock performance the GT-P would be just as good, but if you'll be modifying and chasing super fast times you won't beat the value of the F6 (or even an XR6t). To be fair tho there might be some improvements to the GT-P when we know more about BA II. Hopefully at least 320kW and some decent gearing!

Re: F6 or GT-P

I would dare to go against the grain and say F6 for the simple reason that I havn't owned a V8. If I had I dare say that I would say a GT-P.

I would think that it would be rare for someone who owned an XR-8, GT/GT-P series 1 to move into an F6 (series 2 ba?). Highly likely for those cashed up XR6t owners to trade up. The main reason I see the F6 being a good move by the powers that be at ford.
