yep ours are actually faster than any stangs besides cobras up to 05! It was a mishap in 89' where they gave us extra high flow intake, heads, and exhaust that was gonna be saved for custom stangs. Theres a secret SC on the 89s as well...sshhhh though dont let anyone else know!

so what year will beat an 89? just to clarify he said it would beat the 90-98 years not the 99 and up.

From what I've seen, that's true. I drove 8 different Stangs when shopping for one. Out of the eight, 5 were 94-98 models, and they were definitely slower than the foxes...by more than a little bit. Oddly though, my 88 was faster than all of them...that's why I bought it.

To be clear, I only drove one 94-95 car...I think it was a 94...and it didn't feel that much slower than a fox. The 4.6s before 99 definitely felt slower than foxes.

i was under the impression that the 86 w/ no power options and higher gears were just about the fastest. not sure how much truth there is to it but ya

That's almost correct. 1987-1993 mustangs are all the same. Foxbody 5.0's are faster then 94-98 mustang GT's.

I have also heard that stock for stock the 86's were about the fastest except for the 93 cobra in the fox bodies. Don't know for a fact though. I know that mine feels pretty strong for a stock car.
