what if i could get the 3.8 base same as 2.0t base which should i get

well yesterday went pretty bad went to a dealership to make a deal on a 2.0t and numbers just didn't add up so i ended up leaving. the day wasn't a total loss as i actually got to ride in quartermaster's car which was bad ass! so i've been searching around and i found a 3.8 with about 100 miles on it never been purchased the dealership basically just wants to get rid of it because its been on the lot too long. build date is 9/30/09 or something like that. i've done numbers on the 2.0t and the v6 and they pretty much came up to be the same if i went with this particular v6. should i pull the trigger on the v6?

If they're the same cost and you're not looking for a turbo setup, might as well. Just make sure you get what you want as you're going to have it for a while. There are starting to be a few more options like stroker kits, PA flash box, and cams coming out for the V6 so breaking 300whp should be pretty doable soon, if not already without pressing a button.

Edit: I think if you look a little more or wait out a better deal you should be able to find a 2.0T for a good bit cheaper than a V6. I got my 2.0T Track for $24.5K so I would imagine $21K would be doable on a base model if you find a deal.

How much are they asking for the V6, if you don't mind?

they are asking for 21,450 but i have negative equity on the trade so i will have to shell out some cash i actually do like turbo setups especially when quartermaster gave me a demo of his car and i've owned a turbo car in the past but it seems like this deal is too good to pass up...

South Point Hyundai. I used the Hyundai Associate Purchase program, but I'm sure anyone could get that price with enough haggling.

Damn, that's a good price for sure. That'd be hard to pass up... I love my 2.0T but at that price id probably bite if I didn't have a coupe yet. Chris w/ VTEngineering is looking to swap track rear end for base rear end for $750 as well, so that would take care of the no LSD problem...

Personally I'd hold out for a 2.0T just cuz I think the fun factor can't be matched, but then again I'm seriously biased, LoL...

Either way you go, call me up the moment you get the car and I'll come roll off the lot with you!

It depends whether you'd rather build a 2.0 or 3.8, both have potential. The 3.8 gets better mileage for most people and outa the box it's more fun, but if you really want a project and the ability to do lots of little stuff to your car then wait for a 2.0.

PS: 3.8 makes you live a longer, happier life.

Congrats on the deal. Heard about your TC at PHH, we're putting a set of vert doors on one of their inventory cars... here's a flyer for the meet -

BWAHAHA dude I live five mins away from that dealer, I live in mission viejo! Congrats on the deal though. Get yaself a piggybank for a supercharger :P

That dealer is TINY. I remember I ran past there seeing if they had any interest in meets/aftermarket stuff at all and they just kinda looked at me like I was from the nuthouse.
