So I'm getting a V6 Mustang soon, can someone explain how to do burnouts if the transmission is automatic?.
>drive vehicle until it has reached operating temperature
>turn off traction control
>apply brakes(not too heavily to avoid cooking your rear pads)
>some anon came here asking why his LT1 Maro wouldn't burn out with the TC on
I wish some of these were fake.
What this anon said. Also the V6 Mustang is notoriously known for building up carbon deposits in the engine which will kill performance and economy. To fix this it is recommended to add a cap or two full of bleach to the engine every 2 weeks.
>1994 or 1995 stang on craigslist for cheap and that is a fast fucking car.
Stock they're actually pretty slow. They do transform in feel with bolt-ons and gears though which most used Mustangs will already have.
Rev it like bAAAAAAMBAMBAMBAMBAM then drop it in D for maximum respect.
>Step 1. Tell your parent you are gay, they might be ok with it
>Step 2. Save a bit more money and buy a v8 manual
>Step 3. rev up, pop clutch, enjoy smoke show
>Buy the sissy stang
>Cover yourself in gasoline
>Enjoy smoke show
I had one
for how much it weighs, it really doesn't.
pic related, my old POS
HOW DO YOU GUYS STILL REMEMBER THAT??
>tfw forever hiding my trip
cot-dang it :/
But in reality anon...the 4.0 v6 is a turd and a half. The 4.6 3v barely had the grunt in these cars but it's there. Save for the v8... they're much nicer and you'll really really be happy you did in the end. Trust me, especially if you're interested in cars in any way. You'll be kicking yourself if you don't
I know '95 was the last year of the 302 in the Mustang, my brother owned one. Stock for stock a '96 will pace a '94 GT. Both run 15 flat stock., my point still stands that stock jellybean GTs aren't that fast. Let alone "fast as fuck"
Even though obvious b8 is obvious..
>buying a pre-2011 V6 Mustang
>i shiggy diggy hope ya don't
I know most people bash the V6 no matter what, but honestly after 2011 when they pushed them up from a heavy cast iron 210 hp engine to the lighter aluminum block with 305 hp, I just can't see anything inherently bad about choosing the 2011+ V6 if you don't have an extra $6-8k to spend just for the V8.
Now choosing an automatic on the other hand.. for shame, anon. For shame.
I had an 07 v6 automatic, fine enough for a daily driver that won't try and kill you but I wouldn't try and show off in it really and definitely wouldn't recommend fast corners with stock suspension.
The V6 Mustang was the quickest car you could buy for under 20k in it's day.
>b-b-but it's not as fast as a '11+ that costs twice as much
Bolt ons and gears really wake the 4.0L up, there's also bolt on supercharger kits from for even more power.
Ha ha yes... i've done it and frs was hanging with me. V6 mustang could never even stay one car length with me multiple times this guy wouldn't give up. I have rsx-s by the way and it aint fast since 2006
And they'll laugh just as hard if you're in a V6 Mustang, difference is the Si is actually quick compared the the 'stang
You honestly shouldn't be caring about what people think, most of the time they don't really give a shit
New anon here.
I'm glad OP brought this up. Last time I tried to start a thread similar to this I got warned for some reason, even though I didn't do anything wrong to my understanding, just asked advice on whether or not I should by a car, and posted a google image of one.
anyway. i too want to buy a mustang. Preferably something 2002 or newer. Stick shift for sure. I'll spend about 3-4k.
my concern is the reliability and the cost maintenance. it will be my daily driver. thankfully i work from home though so we're not talking a lot of driving anyway. mostly to fun stuff and shop.
The aussie engine was designed using metric while Mustangs are built using imperial units, so they're incompatible.
Also when shipping to america the engines come upside down, and the labor costs to right them up for american use make it not profitable.
So basically because America holds onto the metric system because the ship with the metric weights and what not back in the 1900's sank on its way there, you guys are stuck with shitty inferior engines.
They're faster than BB6 ludes and as quick as a K20 Si in the quarter stock. They're not as slow as everyone is making them out to be. They're way faster than '05-'09 Camaros too ;-)
