Hey from VA!

Hey everyone! I currently own a '11 mustang gt and am about to purchase either an '06 or '08 f-250. I know those are two different animals, which is why I'm here. Hopefully, I'll gain a lot of knowledge during my stay here. Since every good thread includes pics, here's a couple of my mustang:

Howdy, and welcome to the ORG.

Both motors are different beasts, and if you would like my opinion of each (pros and cons, for the basis of making a choice that fits your goals) send me a PM.

Also, should you choose the 6.0L, there is a lot of great info I can point you in the direction of.

Great looking Mustang by the way, those new 5.0Ls look sweet.

Thanks guys! I do love the idea of dropping $10-13k in cash on the 6.0 and not having another car payment; it leaves more cash monthly for mods.

That's one of the benefits of the 6.0L, you can get them for a good price if you are willing to shop around. Lots of potential on the motor too, depending on your goals.
