Well I love my 91, but they are all basically the same except for a few engine internal differences in the 93. Obviously the condition plays a huge role in which car you are going to want. In my case, I wanted to see the improvments over time, and improvments in the 1/4 mile after each upgrade, So I was in search of a completely stock 5.0.. I found it and couldn't be more happy with my car. As for first mods, intake/exhaust and gears are three of the main ones..

The Mustang GT's of that time period (91-93) did not come with 4 wheel disc. Front disc and rear drum only...

Hope I was a little help!!! Good luck and have fun.

Yes there are many different conversion kits, you can find on jegs.com and summitracing.com and in a bunch of the mustang magazines.

I have the 4.10's in my car for the street, and occasional trip to the track, acceleration is great, top end is great, mid is great, and gas mileage actually improved!!! If you want something a little more driveable for road courses and street, 3.73's and 4.10's are the way to go!!!

Gears are anywhere from 170$ up to about 200$ I recommend Ford Motorsport Gears or Superior Axle and Gear, and installation is another 250-300$ ... About 500-600 bux for the whole shebang.

Not to Bad is it hard to have someone do it if they are not a shop and know what they are doing.... I heard that things have to be down to the 100ths for measurements

the 93's supposedly come with 235hp plus may have lower miles, but then again my car will be a classic in a few years.

No I am pretty sure that 93 came with 205 HP and 275 ft lbs of torque and the 90 through 92 came with 225 and 300ft lbs of torque

But if you do some research the 93 mustangs were dynoed differently because of legal reasons

They were dynoed with all power everything to lower the HP and Torque

Thats why it has lower HP and maybe 5 or 10HP with different pistions

93 dose not have forged pistions i would get a 92 first and 93 is 205hp 275ft 92-87 is 225hp and 300ft but the amount of torque the trans holds is a lil different from year to year i do not know the best one but i would go with a 90-92 if you get a nice car expect to pay $4,000.00 or more.

but the 93 came with better parts such as oil sensor and the valve cover gaskets that always leak

if you dont believe that they are almost the same then look at this

http://www.mustanggt.org/main.htm

and look at the year 1993 and read for yourself

Well I agree the 93 came with differern't pistons and they had to lower the horse power for smog emissions and what not... In 1991 they released the 5 spoke rim and in 92 they made it to a 17" I am going to look for a 1992 or 1991 and anyone know of any good websites to buy from and have good knowledge
