so im having an arguement with this lady. she has a 99 Mustang GT, and she's arguing hardcore that her car has a 290c.i. Windsor engine, that she knows her car in and out. Heres her exact words..

"For all of your information the 35th anniversary mustangs have the 4.6 Windsor (made at the Windsor plant) not the other Romeo engine that is all other mustangs, it was special only for that year. Obviously you can use a computer so why don't you google the 35th anniversary mustangs and see for yourselves that it is the Windsor. Also, I had to replace the engine this past year and they had to put a new crate engine in the car so I would think that I know what is in it. Yes they had to put the Windsor in the car not the Romeo because of it being a 35th Anniversary car. Oh and to let you know I have done all my research on my car so you are not going to be able to say anything that I don't already know"

I told her that its a 281. Now is there something special about the 35th anniversary edition besides cosmetic differences?

35th Anniversary have same hp/torque . They do have a Windsor but its just a 281 like the romeo. Just different valve cover bolt pattern.

Oh yeah, in addition to the valve cover bolt patterns being different, the windsor 4.6 has pressed on cam gears and the timing cover bolts are larger.

I never heard of a 290 Windsor block.

The 99 GT Limited Editions only had an appearrance package that was different from all the other GT's.

Original Owners of the 99 GT Limited Edition also received a Mustang book, a 3 CD set, 60,70,80's music, a round CD case with Mustang logo, and a Mustang decal.

Don't forget the model, we also recieved a die cast replica of our car.

She's wrong. Tell her my car is prettier than hers. Then just agree with her, and PIIHB.
