hmm, sorry a bit off topic, but i get that clutch slip a lot too (only when im really stepping on it tho, when i shift first to seccont the engine revs to the top and then slowly catches the gear)
does it mean that my clutch is dying? or just that its not a performance oriented clutch? (cause i know the previous owner said he had it changed fairly recently, im thinking maybe he cheaped out)

That Mustang GT only has 215hp. That would explain the terrible top end.

That's it? I would have thought the V8 would have had more hp than that!

nice kill and all, but Just to let you know, a 94-95 stang still had a 5.0, mind you it was garbage, and had less power than a 87-93 5.0... and it's about 400 LBS heavier too..

those things run the 1/4 in low to mid 15's and 96-98 ones are even slower... probably 16's....

i hope to maybe run into you on the streets
But still.... Nice Kill... i hate cocky stang drivers too!

I've spent under $1000 in performance mods maybe less... mind you mine, isn't a pro street car, but faster than most.

I didn't say you were

Thats too bad those guys don't really mod their stangs... what a waste... when stock, they're nothing special at all.

I hear ya. If I ever bought a stang, I'd have a supercharger installed within the first week because I see complete supercharger kits as low as $2000 USD on ebay sometimes! It makes me pretty jealous that the upgrade parts dont cost as much as they do for my car
