Banks see them as nothing but a gt. don't buy the roush thinking you will get more for it in the end. I like to mod my own stuff too so i'd be getting the 5.0 most likely. if you want to just buy and drive with no more money out, honestly i say 427r. It will handle better and is more fun to drive.

EDIT: also i never understand the folks that say take that $6k and put it into a blower like everyone just has that money there. when you are paying more for a car you are financing that not paying that money up front. it't not like buying a $30,000 car instead of a $40,000 car means you have $10,000 lying around to mod with right away. And what is $6000 add to a note $60 a month? it will take a REALLY long time to get to $6000 using the money you save on the payment. I wouldn't trade my 10 (which has the 427r blower and arguably better suspension) for a stock brembo 5.0 for an extra $6K.
Well said Shane!

I say get the '11 GT! With a supercharger to where you will have spent the same amount for the 427R, you can get a supercharger kit that is rated to over 500 HP!

Aside from the supercharger and body kit, what else does the 427R come with?

I am sure the roush is way more bling bling inside and out. Tough decision....but you win either way.

One thing that I can say - The 427R suspension is unreal better than stock GT. I rolled for 5k miles on my stock GT suspension. Then had the Roush suspension installed. The best way to describe the difference is that the stock GT stuff should be tossed in the dumpster the second you leave the dealer. So unless you are going to mod the 5.0 right away, get the 427R. Much more fun to drive and not only because of the blower.

I would go with the 2011 and when the warranty runs out put a supercharger on it...IMHO..

The best answer would be this: Buy a 2011 GT WITH Roush kit!

It might be a little different of the Roush were the cheaper of the two. But it's not in this case.

Get the 2011.
Agree 100%

$6000 added onto a standard loan will be worth about $90-120/month in payment, depending on how good of a finance rate you got...
