'02 camaro v6 vs. '03 mustang v6

Which is the better car: the camaro or the mustang? I like the mustang, but I am a ford guy.

How about...both suck. Buying a V-6 in either of these cars is cheating your ego. I wouldn't get caught dead driving either, but I would take the Camaro's looks over the Stang.

Neither the Mustang V6 is a rental fleet managers favourite and the Camaro has one of the worst V6's ever. Niether car has anything going for it

The v6 is the camaro is the same standard 3800 series engine that the GP GT, Regal, Bonne, Impala, and MC have. 200hp/225ish tq.

What I would do if I were you, is buy the camaro/firebird, find a rear-wrecked GTP, and swap the engine in. then you have a very moddable engine, and rwd, and no one would suspect that engine in there.

i agree with everyone else i wouldn't be caught dead in a v6 mustang or camaro, i respect the v8 versions of it(although the only mustang i really respect is the bullitt and the cobra, not to mention the saleen...) but that's about it...

then you'd have a decent engine in a big ass heavy car and all your hard work would be for nil.


and strider i agree fords v8 mustangs are respectable especially '99 and later but i think saleens go above and beyond what Ford alone can do. i barely even consider them mustangs, they're way nicer

the 3800 camaro can even beat the 3.8l mustang, how would it beat the v8 version? no camaro is faster than a mustang, the v6 mustang beats the v6 camaro, the mustang cobra 2003 whoops on the z28 and the ss......sorry to tell you that.

Do you like the new Mach I? I love the mach, if you have ever test drove or heard one it's love at first site. GT's blow, it's the worst car for the money ever. I can't believe people still buy GT's when the mach is only 4K more, and look what you get! WAY BETTER. Since it has the old Cobra engine making 305 HP it's no slouch in speed either. I watched I guy leave a parking lot and he just gave like half throttle and spun the thing sideways burning rubber for like 100 feet. And he wasn't even REALLY trying. Now thats sweet, and the stock exhaust is sweet too. The GT's exhaust you can't even hear, the mach's hurts your ears! And it sounds much cleaner than the GT too probably cuz of the 4 valves per cylinder and 4 BBL TB.

No you wouldn't. The VQ35 Maxima would eat your ancient little beater- it even gives the Z28 an allright run for it's money- let's not forget just how much greater a V6 the VQ is compared to the Camaro's one.


Pull your head out of your ass- the rental company wants back thier Catagory H Sports Car- get a V8, a VQ or a Vesectomy- either is allright with me.

Please slap yourself in the face, as I cannot go through the computer and do it myself

You actually think that the 3.4 or 3.8 litre V6 stock, can beat the 4.6litre V8 mustang GT stock? Ive got a 3800 series engine in my car and Im not exactly that naive. I know exactly what your problem is my friend
you =

The camaro 3.4 liter v6 would get OWNED by the mustang 3.8 liter v6. The mustang produces 195 hp compared to the 160 in the 3.4 camaro. Plus the mustang is lighter. The 3.4 camaro won't come close to a GT!
