    an ON topic post, ive driven both, and yes the gt is much faster (only got to drive the auto) but do i think its worth the extra 5k msrp (and extra 12k including the 7k markup) the dealer wanted at the time i got my v6? The 5k, maybe, but including markup i can do so much more to my 6. At the time i got my v6, insurance was nearly double for the gt too (212 for v6, 398 for gt).

    In Canada the Nissan V6 Altima is less than $2000.00 difference between the cars. With the current incentives from Ford and Nissan, the V6 Altima is cheaper to buy than the V6 mustang.

    The 6 speed or the auto? because the 5.9 sec (SE-R only one with the 6speed) altima starts at just over 30k here (29,950). So unless they magically have $10,000 in incentives, i dont exactly call that a close base price.

    the cheapest v6 altime here is the SE model and it starts at 23,500 which is over $3500 more than a base v6 mustang. Even the 2.5S starts at 19,500, which is right around (within a few bucks) of a base v6 mustang.

    It is the base V6 Altima that I referred to, the SE-R is in the GT price range.

    They must be really cheap in canada then, because 3500 US should be over $4100 CAD, and last i checked they didnt have those kind of rebates on the v6 altimas. But like i said, i know sometimes cars are more expensive/cheaper in canada so if the v6 mustang started a little higher and the v6 altima started a lil lower, plus rebates its possible.

    Leave it to a V-6 owner to magazine race. For your information, my 2001GT pulled 227 RWHP and 268 ft/lb of TQ.

    I also ran a 14.0 with just a K&N Filter back in 2002. If you think a stock 2005 V-6 can take a stock 1999-2003 GT, then you are dumber than I thought.

    Face the facts, Mustang GT = Sports car, Mustang V-6= sports car looks with small engine with low power.

    Be proud of your V-6 MSP, you should be, it is a handsome car. But accept the fact my car is faster than yours.

    Black2001GT, Nobody is saying they can beat them, but they can hang with the autos (i know because i have both, also have a 2003 cobra if you want to talk bout whos car is faster than whos).

    @MSP Stock 2001 gt 5 speed will run extremely low 14's which makes us no competition. The autos run high 14s to low 15's (on stock tires, quicker on anything aftermarket). On the street i raced against someone else drivin my 01 gt auto, and i was ahead at 75mph. Thats real world, not magazine.
