1988 mustang LX v8, how much H.P. and torque?
90 horsepower, 134 lb-ft of torque.
I dont know the horsepower rating, but I have driven alot of Mustangs and the 1988 with a five speed was the funnest.
bolt-ons are absolutily neccessary to compete.
In 1988 , I believe the stock ratings were HP= 225 , Torque= 300ftlbs You can do allot of things to boost power , such as high flow air filter , improved headers and duel exhaust from a good aftermarket supplier ( Hooker , Headman , etc )
on my 1988 mustang 5.0 ive installed a stage 3 trick flow cam new flat top pistens with cobra heads and GT40 intake also cobra bk shorty headers with flowmasters a 70mm tb and a T5 transmission a new PT rear end with 408 gears. it runs and sounds great but whats a good guess on the new HP its putting out now?
