ok with the gears you shouldnt have to worry about a stock 99-04 mustang.....that is if you can drive......as far as the gtps......my mom has an impala SS which has the same motor and i have seen a few run at the track......my car pretty stock and there is one that has the boost cranked up and he runs only about less than a 1/10th of a second faster than me so once again if you get your gears then those shouldnt be a problem

you should not have to worry about either one of those if you have gears

+1

i used to have a 99 with some bolt ons,. and i firmly believe a 5.0w/gears vs 99w/stock gears the 5.0 should take it.. the main reason my 99 felt faster was cuz they come stock with 3.27's, stock 5.0= 3.08's

+1000000000 for the subframes makes a completely big difference in the way the car feels and drives..

a stock 5.0 will take a stock new edge anyday..there alot lighter too..and 5.0's also came with 2:73's too not just 3:08s..just get subframes, drag radials, full exhuast and gears then those dip low 13's REAL easy...
