2.0T VS 3.8 - Pros & Cons

Noticed there's been a lot of 2.0T vs 3.8 threads lately, so I was thinking about starting up an official versus thread. The idea is to be able to just post this thread in any that pop up and then lock those threads. Hopefully If this is done right it could be sticked?

Any input would be great, and I can edit this original post after I get all the correct information in.


I'll start off with the first bit-

2.0T is lighter and has slightly better weight distribution

Curb weight (lbs., MT/AT)
2.0T 3294 / 3362
3.8 3389 / 3397

Why reshash all the info, it's already there. This thread would be awesome if it wasn't going to require every to retype what they already said in 10 other threads. Getting one of the 10+ page threads stickied would be a much better idea.

Here's a few threads to pull info from. There are like 5 more I'll try to dig up later tonight.

Lambda vs Theta
3.8 or 2.0T?
How much would it cost to get the 2.0t up to par with the 3.8?
Getting an Automatic: 2.0T or 3.8?

I know, I was thinking of trying to put all that information in one spot, minus any opinions. Then editing the title and clearing out all of the other posts.

Cost to mod, and to what power level: 2.0t and 3.8

That one should have the most factual information that pertains to the normal "which one" debate. Might just proof the costs and update any new developments...

There's your problem. Because what it ultimately comes down to is preference.

If you're afraid of doing more than I/H/E and want big power, get the V6.
If you're afraid of doing more than I/H/E and don't care about big power get the 2.0T
If you're shooting for 300-325whp it's a toss up, as after mods they are essentially the same price.
If you're shooting for 325whp-400whp and don't want to use nitrous or crack the engine open, get the 2.0T.
If you're shooting for 450+ and want a broad autox friendly powerband, get the V6.
If you're shooting for 450+ and don't mind a little turbo lag you can get the 2.0T there cheaper

I agree, however I cannot sticky a thread. The only thing I can do is make a suggestion.

Enough with the ghey comparo threads already. Wow, in my entire history of browsing the internet (and I frequent A LOT of forums) I have NEVER seen an issue so beaten to death.

I get what you are trying to do here, but the sticky idea isn't something new. Either the mods don't care or they have a sick sense of humor and love to see the flame wars that these threads all degenerate into. It has gotten so bad that I am determined to bait them all as soon as I see them pop up so they implode as quickly as possible, get locked, and then fade into obscurity. Or until the next noob that don't know how to use search comes along...

Each version of the car is focused towards different peoples interest. I wanted a 300+ horse power car that I could drive out of the box so to speak and ONLY worry about exterior mods since the car already had a LSD, BREMBO's, etc.

I agree the mods need to do something about these vs arguments and close every single new thread like it. Somebody hit up N2O,Slider or Brandon since we see them the most on here.

^ Oh I'm sure they've seen these threads. They just don't seem to want to do anything I guess.
