Re: GTP VS XR6 TURBO....Problems & Issues

Well it just depends on your finances,if you can afford it go for the GT ,you won't look back ,dont get scared off just because of a few faulty ones that you may hear of on FordForums,take my words and others on this Forums they really are a great package they have the power,handling,comfort and the mean good looks.
And i hope you were joking when you said that the T3 had more power when you were comparing it against the GT.

Wot he said........

Have owned a XR6T and now the GT, best decision I made was selling the T. Nice car, quick, sounded great with the ss straight through system, but all in all the GT is just so much better.

The Gt I drove didn't FEEL....I did say feel... as quick as a T3 when i drove it...and it was pinging bad too. Some of the other forum members commented on this also....by saying the smoothness of the car masked the brute feel of it and it was hard to tell, till they got a side by side comparison.....time to go and test drive another I think.

If it was pinging then the timing would have been out ,they need premium fuel and if they still ping then add some Octane Boost in it otherwise they have to be tuned and dynod.

firefox7,

If you don't buy a car just because you hear of a few problems then you will never own one.

You can't go wrong with either the XR6T or GT. I thought of buying a T3 as well but the AU isn't in the same class as the BA. That's not to say that the T3 isn't an awsome car in it's own right.

The drive line shunt was a progressive thing for me but I also think it has a lot to do with the way the car is driven as it's not a constant problem. It only seems to occur after backing off the throttle in traffic.

Re: GTP VS XR6 TURBO....Problems & Issues

strange that butler... Every gt ive dynoed made more power then the T3's ive dyned standard....ohh well...... All i know is my GTP waisted my T3 in a race.....The difference is the T3 has off the line bang on its side and pulls harder then a class room full of teenagers watching porn.. BUT the GT is so smooth its decieving just how fast its actually going and picking up speed..

The only problem i have is just how much variation there is between the standard cars. I think its wrong how they can vary by 30 rwkw.. Thats just wrong... The most i saw the T3 vary was 15 rwkw.

None of these cars will be as fast as what you drive now Firefox, you will have to spend some $$$ to get them up to what you are used too :).
