Yeah but the GenIII is a piece of s**t in my opinion, Took one for a spin that had has exhaust, headers and head work done and it just felt like rubbish.... Feels VERY cheap inside and the suspension setup is a little of disgusting, All up i sumed it as a cheap piece of s**t

I disagree, I think they are great. But EB V8 is still a tool, and tools drive all sorts of cars.

Yeah VTII might be getting on a bit, but they are a really cheap way into a fast V8.

No I would not compare the GEN3 equipped CARS to a typhoon, but as for the motor, well they both have really good potential.

you guys need to learn to read. to me he sounded impressed that the f6 in factory trim was not a bad match to his moddified gen3.

the same people getting upset are the same ones reeled in by the fishing expeditions in the past.

i've been in a vt ss gen3 with 240rwkw and they are damn quick. not much in the ford stable pre typhoon/xr6t would get anywhere near it for the same amount on dollars spent. sure a ford v8 can get there but its a lot more dollars.

bout time some people opened their other eye and realise the general does make some fine products. not always the easiest on the eye but the hardware under the bonnet is some of chev's finest. it may not be high tech but you can't argue with the numbers. i'm not saying ford can't achieve the same results because i think they can as they have a superior product, i'm just saying ls1/2's are not shabby.

Hi Fellow Ford Modders,

I have a GEN 3 SS, 242rwkw, Mafless tune, 4-1 headers, 2.5inch twin exhaust system, Over the radiator intake, ported throttle body, 3.9 diff gears.

I went into Ford to see if Fords best the F6 Typhoon could match my beast.

I found the ford Typhoone 6 speed a little slack under about 2500rpm, whereas my GEN 3 pulls like a train right off idle, the F6 builds some nice thrust thereon through first gear, the GEN3 builds up to a bigger top end and feels like there is a higher average power.

In second gear both cars felt very similar under full fire, the Typhoon feels really good here, again I think the GEN3 is marginally quicker in my current configuration state. Lugging around, the GEN3 felt more torquey, the F6 feels a little slack at first and then builds upto a nice head of steam. My gen 3, you can turn the corner in fourth gear and it just pulls from nothing really quickly.

The GEN3 sound tough in traditional V8 music, the F6 sounds awesome, turbo and wastegate sound the part.

All in all, my Gen 3 would out punch the typhoon in a straight line but considering the typhoon is standard, thats a great car.

Add a little boost to the typhoon and a tune and it would be an absolutely awesome car.

I also drove the VE SS, I would rate the typhoon as the better drive experience, both of these cars are out punched by my GEN3.

My next car will be a typhoon or XR6T, get the mods ready, they are awesome cars.


yeh but how much oil does the phoon use compared to the GENIII ??? haha fair go d***head go post this dribble on ls1.com

I think he has. :roll:

I read those forums, not alot of it however and im having de ja vu!

No matter how sincere he might sound, we cant help but get the feeling that hes gonna start a fight, hes done it everytime in the past. But if hes willing to wipe the slate clean and admit to his past problems, then good.
