Hey guys I'm thinking about getting this 99 gt with 140k, i have a 94 3000gt sl and i want something faster but cant afford a vr4 .I'm not sure on any mods the mustang haves but let's say it's stock. How much hp to the wheels should it be pushing now after its age and mileage, also what would be some average 0-60 and 1/4 times for a decent driver ? Thanks!:)

Welcome to the site. The search function does wonders for these questions but is your car auto or manual? Auto expect 210-220 rwhp and if its manual 220-230. Not sure 0-60 but 1/4 and completely stock im assumimg high 13s low 14s. Im not 100% sure because mine was never a stock gt. I went from stock v6 to built 5.0. Lol

I think it depends alot on your areas elevation too. Here at 2000 feet and with all my bolt ons, I hit 14.4 on a 98 degree night. I went back with the temps 20 degrees cooler and with drag radials and was able to hit 13.9. All the stock 99-04 GT's were hitting in the 15 second mark. There were 10+ 99-04 GT's there and they all were running about that. Not to mention I drove my car 2 hours to the track so the car itself was hot too.

I live jersey but Im not sure on elevation, and really 15s?

Being in NJ I would guess 13.8-14.3 for a stock GT depending on driver.

Lol nice and yea it's 5spd, what's the fun in a auto
Slap a 2.1L Kenne Bell and 4.10's on an 4R70W and see how fun it is, and easy to destroy tires.

If your car is a coupe and a 5 speed, 0-60 can be achieved in 5.5 seconds at sea level, at best.

However, a metric **** ton of factors can determine this figure

GTs are slow as ****.
No not really. It's just there are faster cars nowadays. Stock a New Edge is as fast as a stock 1968 Shelby Cobra GT-500KR (428 ci Cobra Jet motor). It was in '67-68 that I stood in a showroom looking at those twin 4-bbl carburators just dreaming of owning one. 13s were considered pretty dang fast back then. The "King of the Road" Mustang is reported to run 0-60 in 5.4 seconds and the quarter at 14.0 @ 101. It didn't take much to get into the 13s though.

Run at Atco or E-Town. Avg times I usually see there were right around 14.4-14.0 with a good driver for the stock NE. BTW, I am just going off of test & tune nights. Atco and E-Town are considered two of the fastest tracks on the east coast. We are pretty much at sea-level with those two. Island is ok, way less people but I run worst times there. Go to Island if you want more seat time. Head South if you are looking for your PBs.

My gt is actually not that slow. Faster then most cars on the road. But cars are becoming faster by the day and soon, I will not be faster then most cars. :facepalm:

It's not a bad upgrade from what you have. It will feel a lot faster for sure.

Just don't expect to beat any new 5.0s with out some mods.

Yeah when our cars came out, they were actually decently quick. Even when compared to GM's muscle cars and pushrod motors making a lot more power, our cars did a damn good job staying in close to them.


Notice how I said quick, and not fast :shiftyeyes
