Default How much hp do the 96-98 gt's make stock

Ok i know this is tech, but as many have said before the street/strip is dead. I was heading down 19 in palm harbor and a mustang gt with rims, a pillar gauges, and stuff started antaginizing me so i went for it. We were just messin around for a while, then we had a chance to race, i pulled up on him (60mph) and before i got to him he floors it. So i hit it and slowly but surely pull past him, ending at about 120.. One of my questions is: Did he have a supercharger for those gauges, or were they for show. If he didnt whats the stock hp for the 96-98 gt's.

right, just like I've said to every other post. Mod or not, I'll watch for OT posts and send them their way. If the mods aren't doing their job, they shouldn't be mods!

You don't have enough information to know weither or not he had a supercharger.

There are plenty of different routes he could have gone to beat you, anything from the right combo of boltons/engine work to nitrous to a blower.

I think it was just some ECU tuning.

Default RE: 96-98 mustang gt vs 99 cobra

it wasn't ECU tuning, it was exhaust porting that added the extra 10hp. not trying to sound smart but that's what it is, i read it somewhere in a mustang book or something awhile back

from what i know 98 does have higher power due to modified to the head.
but am not sure if it exactly is the porting of the exhaust.

To quote the Mustang book in my lap right now: "There were few changes for 1998. The standard Mustang GT gained 10bhp, to 225bhp at 4,750rpm, from cleaned-up and revised exhaust ports. Torque was up as well, to 290lb ft."

Good enough for me. I actually thought it was computer too at first until silverstang mentioned exhaust porting. That's when I looked it up in the book to be sure and sure enough that's it. So just do a PI swap like the 98 still needs anyway and you're done. It was like one very small step towards the PI swap, then in 99 they actually did it the right way.
