Default 2010 427R or 2011 GT?

Need a little input. Want to purchase another Mustang again. Found a 2010 427R with less than 5k miles on it for $37K. Drove it and really liked it. Has all the upgrades I would want in the car. However, cannot get over the fact I can get a new 2011 5.0 GT with Brembo package for $30,800 + tax, etc. Which way do I go? I'm leaning towards the 2011 for price and the new motor. Thanks.

Definitely 5.0 since it's the same body style. With a CAI and tune, you will make more RWHP than the 2010 with the supercharger!

Personally, I like the 2010 Roush. You can always upgrade to the P51 R2300 TVS kit and make a silly amount of whp (450-515whp).

Imagine the silly amount of power you could make by putting a blower on the 5.0! And the new 5.0 is $6,000 less than the 2010 Roush - money for the supercharger?

It's a no brainer. The 2010 Roush is not the better value of the two.

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.

Thats true. I wasn't thinking about the price difference.. way up here, they'd both be about the same price lol

Plus the blower on the 5.0 makes about 600whp??

Definatly the 5.0. With the extra money you can easily get that thing pushing 600rwhp.

If you plan on selling the car down the line, the Roush will be worth more than a standard GT.

But still, it's the 5.0. It's a GODSEND!

Personally, I'm not a fan of the Saleen/Roush cars. It's like someone else did the work that I'd want to do myself on a car. I take pride in doing my own creation. That's the beauty of Mustangs, you can customize them to how you want them to be.

With that being said, I'd take the 2011 5.0, and customize it to how you like it. Just my opinion.

lol ask this over on fn sweet and you will get a different answer. What are you going to do with the car? Are you going to roll stock? Are you going to mod the car? The 10 427r feels a lot faster than a stock 5.0 and is more fun to drive imho thanks to the instant power. it really depends. that said, roush cars are not great on the resale form what i hear. 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.

I dont think Id go with a 5.0 right now. Let them get some kinks worked out then go forward with the purchase of a new 5.0. Look at the 05 and 06's. They were plagued with issues. Not big issues except for water leak but alot of issues. Keep that in mind if ur looking to buy a new 5.0 Im already hearing of tranny problems.

Very true, plus for a LOT less money you can put a tune and kick the boost up on the SC and put down great power. You won't have to spend a ton of money modding it since just about the whole car is modded already. So it really all depends on what you want to do with the car and how much money and time to want to invest when your talking about picking between the two.

WOW! Thanks for all the feedback and everyone taking the time to respond!! I'm going to test drive the '11 this evening. I've already driven the 427R and must say I really liked it. As for mods, if I go with an '11, I will most likely only go with a new exhaust (Roush axle backs) and possibly Ford Racing lowering springs, other than those two things, I will keep the car stock. Thanks again.

427R. I've driven both and the 427R feels so much faster because the power comes on so much earlier. Not sure about the 1/4 mile times.....but the butt meter says 427R. Plus you get all those suspension goodies.
