Sup, my name is Joe. I'm here because I'm thinking about buying a 99 mustang gt/auto to use for a daily driver, I already have a race car. Actually my cousin is considering selling it to me for dirt cheap(2k). Normally I would even consider a damn ford, as I'm a GM guy. But beggers can't be choosers I guess. I'm just here to learn about the problems to look out for, or any common problems to expect(the mustang has 115k miles). Not really looking to waste money modding, as these little 2 valve GT's pretty much have no potential. Just looking to keep it a relable daily. So any advice on what to look for or expect would be cool. Later.

Welcome to MM. I think you'll find that GTs do have potential if you've got the time and money. I know we've had guys making 600+rwhp on them (hell, we've had 1 or 2 guys make 600+rwhp on the 3.8 V6s).

Yeah I know they can put down good numbers, but it takes allot more money then what I got to get them there. For me, GM cars are allways the better value. I'm not here to change anybodyies mind on that, thats just my thing. I've got maybe a grand in mods on my GTP, and I walk bolt on 2 and 3 valve GT's all the time. I've even surprised some light bolt on machs and cobras. If I could afford a low mile LS1 I would be all over it, but my GTP does just fine.

I have a good buddy who just traded away his 05 GTO towards an 03 Cobra....insert facepalm. I wanted to kick him for that, but he remains firm he made the right choice. I don't know much about those cars, but we will see how he feels when I run him in the GTP. He said it's stock other then a catback lol. Anyway, yeah I'm down to learn a little more about this side of the fence. All the mustang loyal I've run into in person though are bunch of tards who think mustangs neva loose. This site seems pretty chill though, thanks for the welcome.

What kind of power are you making in your GTP? I believe the 03 Cobra should be putting down about 350/350 at the wheels if it's a bone stock manual. And yeah, we're pretty chill. Most of us are well aware that until 2011 we were the underdogs :p
