What makes a Bullitt, A Bullitt



The limited edition Ford Mustang Bullitt GT was available in 2001, designed to pay homage to the 1968 Steve McQueen movie Bullitt, in which McQueen's character, Lt. Frank Bullitt got behind the wheel of a Highland Green 1968 GT390 Fastback and chased two assassins in a black Dodge Charger R/T.

The 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT was available in three colors: Black, the new True Blue, and Dark Highland Green, borrowed from Ford's F-Series lineup. There were 3041 green, 1818 black, and 723 blue Bullitts produced. Dark Highland Green was not available on any other Mustang.

Exterior features included a blacked-out corral around the pony in the grille, distinctive red brake calipers all around with a silver Mustang pony on the front calipers.
The body got simple side scoops, a different 'c' pillar trim and a brushed aluminum fuel door.

Less is more sometimes and Ford deleted the rear spoiler and the front fog lamps. The 2001 Bullitt Mustangs also got a retro interior theme. The new seats were designed after seats from the 1960s, and were much more comfortable than the standard seats. The numbers in the gauge cluster were written in a tall, thin font like in the 1960s as well. The shifter got an aluminum ball and the shifter trim ring. The Bullitts had a different intake than the GT they were based upon, and the upgrades resulted in an additional five horsepower and nice sound and "BULLITT" was engraved on the sill plates.

Although Ford planned to produced 6500 Bullitts, only 5582 rolled off the line.

Engine and transmission modifications

* The new cast aluminum intake manifold has an increased runner diameter to maintain low-end torque and provide a broader power curve for increased top-end performance.
* A twin 57mm-bore throttle body replaces the GT 65 mm throttle body, allowing for quicker throttle response and increased peak flow.
* To reduce parasitic losses, the alternator pulley was increased to 66 mm and the water pump pulley was increased to 140 mm.
* The exhaust system has been retuned to increase flow approximately 20% and give the Bullitt a new distinct sound.
* All Mustang Bullitts have the new TR3650 transmission and clutch assembly that provides improved shift quality. A new 11-inch flywheel and clutch assembly have been added to increase torque capacity and reduce clutch pedal efforts.

Exterior

* Pony on grill is centered in a blacked out coral instead of chrome.
* Does not come with a spoiler.
* Brushed aluminum gas filler door.

As far as difference n 0-60, I cannot get an accurate time myself. Ill take my bullitt to the drag eventually, but reading around it seems to be .5 or .6 faster than a regular GT. One site told me .1 seconds faster which is total bull. The .5 seems to be right, my fellow Bullitt people will hopefully back me on that stat.

Someone will probably chime in and say... "a bullitt is just a GT with an intake, I dont see what the hype is all about".

Bullitts RULE.

Try this -- Bullittproof01 put it on a while back ... tested a bullitt, cobra, and mach 1. The bullitt just drives way better than a regular GT. The frame supports, lowered height, improved braking, etc. just makes it a better (faster) driving car. Bullitt is better in the twisties than the straight line, but is still no slouch when you don't have to turn.

I just made an account to reply to this

DHG 2692 here and i have driven a Stock 2001 Conv Cobra with Short Shifter and CAI, a 2001 Hardtop Cobra with short shift, clutch, steeda shocks, flowmasters and CAI .. and been in a Mach 1 .. my opinion about the mach and bullitt are that they are designed for the driver and for the driver to feel the most happy and most comfortable about driving there car. they were baby projects of ford expecially the Bullitt imo. the bullitt is the best feeling, and most fun, i have a centerforce clutch magnaflow catback and some short shift my friend with the hardtop cobra gave me, still stock shift handle, bullitt badging on side and the 281ci SOHC badge instead of GT(although im going to change it back) and it is just soo ballsy. i do believe the car makes you feel like your driving a bit faster and harder than you are, while still in control, its very fun to take my car out and open it up with the radar det on .. plan on gettin radar jamming system that works parrallel with my escort s2. im going to change the part of my intake where the air filter is to a cai that goes into the fender, want to get headers, but beside that still figuring out what i want to do with it.. but im goign to put a front strutbar on and get drilled/slotted rotors, im gonna keep the calipers though, and im going to tint the sides to 30 but keep back stock, so if cop behind me wont think im hot with tints... ya know? oh yea, btw opinions on putting a Shaker and the Mach 1 CAI with Shaker intake system on the bullitt?
