    Sell them both and get a Honda!!! Gas is getting too expensive. Unless your building a track car!! Then I say Gut your trans am and build a mean twin turbo setup on a small block. Unless you have money Lots of money the v6 is just not worth it.

    Ditto.

    A nice LT1 should be about the same price as the Stang.

    If I was going to buy a 5.0 Ford, I'd go with a LX Notchback.

    But if it's stang vs. V6 Bird, go with the Stang.

    Stang will be faster for cheaper.

    id also go with an lt1 camaro first..... but out of the two... if it is a nice gt.. id go with it.... will be a little bit faster, especially after modding.. and will sound 10x's better.

    it's easy because the motor is much more like a 1st gen chevy motor and for me that makes it easier to work on. I have built a couple of 1st gen chevy motors. my 92 z28, my old boat's motor, and my uncle's 82 truck. to me being alot more like a 1st gen motor makes it easier to make power. you do the same things, but it's easier to work on for someone who has worked with 1st gen motors, and it's cheaper to get parts for. I don't even know what you have done to your car. no reason not to have a fun run at the drag strip. lol.

    if you got the money go with an ls1. you will enjoy it alot more initially and they look 10times better.
