Asked by Apr 09, 2008 at 12:20 AM about the 1994 Ford Mustang GT Coupe

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hey Car Gurus, I had a question. So here it is. I keep hearing roomers
that the 1994-1998 mustang V6 coupe has just as much power as the 1994-1998 mustang 2 door GT coupe. I was just wandering if thats true. I'm trying to find a mustang thats below 5,000
and with alot of power. If you have any suggestions it would be greatly apreciated! You can email me back at ponycarsrock@hotmail.com or renown@socket.net.
                          Thanks

what you heard was a "made up thought" the gt was (I do believe) 50+ hp over the base.

the actual specs of a GT Mustang 1997 has 225HP stock the V-6 has 175HP stock.

how ever the 5.0 made almost 300 ftlbs of trq witch is were acc. really comes from 94-95 gts are an awsome place to start i had a 94 v6 and it was horably slow my best friend has a 95 5.0 and it on a 100 shot of nitrous will hang doors with my 08 gt and i have about 350 hp now so great place to start

If you are set on the body style, pick up a 95 5.0l and drop it in. If not, pick up an old fox body 5.0l, throw in a new differential(a locking is my personal choice for them), cam it, better exhaust and intake setup, stage 2 clutch, and you'll be eating the new GT's alive. the power to weight ratio is amazing and doing this you'll spend under 4 grand if you can find a body and engine(rebuild it).

There is crazy amount of bad information on here.... 94-95 5.0s and 96-97 4.6s were rated at 215 Hp at the crank ..the 5.0 had more torque, 300 vs 285 I believe. The 98 gt was rated at 225 hp due to better tune and exhaust The v6 is 94-95 had a whopping 145 hp and 96-98 had 150 hp. Trust me, those 94-98 V6 mustangs are about the slowest car you can buy....the GT 94-98 cars are turds in stock form but with a couple grand spent in the right places, they can really fly. Your best bet would be to buy a 94-95 5.0 for like 3k and spend 2k on heads/ cam/ intake. otherwise, you will be stuck being slow.

I get the feeling justin likes the 5.0... id honestly say grab the 4.6l... i cant speak for down in the states but i know guys that have a hell of a time finding 94-95 5.0 upgrades cheap up here in Canada... I get all my parts for shit all lol its so cheap... id grab a 96-98GT... ill concede that the 5.0 generated a little more torque bot not over as much of the band as the 4.6 modular... gl.
