hey, new to the forum
read something about people with dirty fuel injectors to have a sluggish issue
not too sure but its worth 4.99 to stick a bottle of STP in your gas tank

2000 GT Vert
Laser Red

i have heard of seafoam, i think its supposed to clean out your engine. My friend did it and said his driveway was covered in smoke

my 97 with 112 is by no means sluggish. but it loves oil... which should be cured tomorrow!


Has it changed since you bought it is the question... try setting your tuner to a stock setting and see what happens

My mustang seems to be sluggish. It is a 97 GT with 115k miles. I recently replaced the fuel pump, plugs and wires, DPFE sensor. I cant figure out what might be making it sluggish.

Maybe its just because its summer?

All cars loose power in the extreme heat.

The next step is to do a compression test...

And if that checks out you may need to look at the injectors...
