The only regret I have my friend, is not buying that black/gray GT500 sitting on the showroom floor the day I bought mine. With what I've dumped into mine, it would have taken me probably 3 years to pay out as much cash in monthly payment as I dropped over a period of a few weeks into mine. Not only would the cash outlay have been less of a "bomb", but I'd have a GT500, lol. Live and learn... When I'm done with this thing, I think I'm just going to buy a Corvette and have it over with. You can buy used C6's with < 10,000 miles on them for low 30s all day long around here.

Cars. It's a money thing. Those that have it will. If I were loaded I couldn't care less about my resale value and would just go pay cash for a new 5.0 GT.

But I'm not. So I'm "stuck" with this 300hp 3v. Oh well. Guess it could be worse. lol

My advice is if you're regretting the purchase, don't continue modding that thing at all. Right now you can have it back to nearly stock in < 1 hour. I wish I could say the same for mine, lol. Its a great time to buy, why not trade it for a Challenger before the end of the year?

I don't want anyone to get me wrong from my first post on here. I do love the '10 but this is my first muscle car and owning a GT was a dream of mine, I bought an '10 because usually, they don't do huge upgrades (from my experience) until the next redesign. I know they may up the HP a little here, or tweek the interior there. But toally swapping out the drive train?

Also I went into my dealer and told him about the rumors of the 5.0 and he said theay they haven't heard anything and that there is always rumors about the 5.0

I was looking forward to owning the car a year or so before it was out classed by an upgrade.

I bought it in november, its not even january and.. oops! LOL.

Mudflap will those black covers fit my car if I have the bezels? I'm talking about the tail lights.

Well they are not full covers, but more like bezels (they are made by GTS I think). Heres a better pic:

Default Stop the Madness

I just got my 2010 for 5g off sticker. Of course I wanted an extra 100 horse car... was I gonna get 5g off the sticker? Of course not, at least not for 12+ months from now. But I wanted my new car now, my Pathfinder was giving me problems and so I got the 10'. For the guys who paid more, thats life. You dont buy a car as an investment, it's a mode of transportation first, a toy second and if your fortunate enough to have money to pay over sticker, you are probably not one of the guys arguing price in this thread. They all depreciate and the minute it goes off the lot you just spent minimum 33% of the sticker price.

I've been following the birth of the 5.0 for quite a few many months now. Anxiously awaiting the day I can put it my order

My '10 GT is not paid off yet so I think I have to double my payments to be ready for the new pony.

So, people have voiced concerns about the new 5.0 not being friendly to easy mods...I had a chance to speak today with Mike Harrison, the Chief Engineer of the 5.0 and 6.2 and he answered those questions for me. Basically, he said that the new 5.0 does have room to grow but the mods may not do as much as they have in past generations...Ill have a link with the discussion shortly.

I'm doing a BIG remodel this year, then the "carrot" when I get done will be the 2011 6 speed Stang. I told the wifey this and she didn't give me any **** about it!

OMG This is amazing news! I previously owned an 07 Shelby GT and had to sell it due to money issues. Now that things are much better, by the time this comes out I WILL be getting one. I'd love to get the nitty gritty specs on the motor.

Talking The More things change the more they stay the same

This is the same discussion that happens every time Ford comes out with a brand new motor. The old one was better, usually because more parts are available. (Except for the late 70's)

The 5.0 was the best, the 4.6 was crap because of the heads, no way you could get 400 horsepower.

The new one can't be improved. Sure it can. As long as a manufacturer has to make an engine get good mileage, run smoother,and get performance,there are trade offs.

That means you can always get more. Better breathing in and out, different cam profile, compression, fuel curve, bigger mass airflow sensor and so on.

I think with the DOHC setup, there's all sorts of new horsepower available, just maybe done in a different way, say at higher rpm, or ??

Hmmm.. Imagine ringing that modded up motor to 9 grand woo hoo!
