Pretty much everyone i know would rather do exterior upgrades then power upgrades. Unless you take it to the track alot, your not going to really care about the difference on your daily commute and itll just burn more gas. This came to my attention because i wanted a v8 mustang and a guy spent an hour and a half convincing me to get the v6. especially in this day an age, all you get from more power is more money down the drain spent on gas. Its all about the fuel consumption, otherwise id say more power is deffinitely better.
