consider yourself lucky if you are making even 195 ATM.

Probably around 190. Thats basically what they come with stock though. The NPI Gts respond very poorly to basic boltons.

Ford ought to have their asses beat for lettin a V8 roll off the assembly line without even havin at least 200rwhp. If I had known that i would have never bought my 98GT. 190 is about right with those mods

try this for a ROUGH estimate of your HP, take the lower number!

PS: I used 3500lbs. for your car with you in it and came up with 215RWHP for the lower rating. Just a rough estimate but better than guessing! Mine came up as having 285 for the low number and 325 for the mph number so I take the 285 as being more realistic considering the motor and the mods.

Those things don't work. There is no way to take into account driver skill or 60' time. No way he is making over 200 WHP with his current mods.

Also, no way in hades that you are making anywhere close to 280 WHP with your current setup. You MIGHT break 240 WHP unless your pypes exhaust is a complete setup (not just a catback).

Even then, its no 280 WHP car. I made 280 WHP with full exhaust/intake boltons, u/d pulleys, tune, and cams.

Yeah,I had a '98 GT,but it was my first Mustang so I have some pretty fond memories of it.But between the 185wrhp and the fact it had some damn tall gears[not sure but I figure 3.08s or 2.73s],it was pretty slow,it did get some killer gas mileage though.Really the 94-95 5.0 GT's might have have had 195 rwhp stock,but I don't think they had 200 either,they just have quite a bit more torque and respond much better to mods than the NPI 4.6.
