M56 vs M37

Wanted to ask which one would you choose if you had a choice. Any color, trim, etc. Would you go with the M37 or the M56? The 3.7 liter V6 or the 5.6 liter V8?

I'd personally go with the 5.6 variant since you don't see them too often and they're kind of like unicorns. Not a lot of people know about them either. Like they say there's no replacement for displacement!

M56 for the uniqueness of it and the thing sounds like a T-rex with a muffler delete.

Everything I read is that performance-wise you're better off overall with the 3.7. The 5.6 though has more power and though quick is not much quicker but considerably more nose-heavy. I'm more a performance person so I'd want it to handle well. I agree though that the 5.6 is rare and not well known about.

I'm right there with you but assuming the most you do is bolt-ons, the 3.7 isn't going to be quicker; and if it is it'll be negligible. The 5.6 is rated at 400hp and tq so the muscle is there. That said, the 3.7 is probably the more high revving motor if the 5.7 is tuned like it is in the Titan. Regardless, custom exhaust on the 5.6 sounds awesome and it has all the straight line power you'd need. If OP goes with (or went with) this, just realize, as you mentioned, it's going to be heavy up front.

Yes, when I was looking for my M, several articles I read said they liked the way the 3.7 felt over the 5.6. The 5.6 just felt to heavy and that the 3.7 was plenty of engine for the type of car it is. Maybe a compromise would be get the hybrid. That configuration has some pretty decent 0-60 numbers for a heavy 4 door sedan.
