1995 mustang gt 5.0 0-60 ??

I have a 1995 mustang gt 5.0 automatic just bought it couple days ago and i tryed stepping on the throtle but its not as fast as i expected, the engine sounds great no leaks or anything it just feels slow when i step on it, i tryed timing it from 0-60 mph and it took 10 secs?? Is there something wrong with the engine drive shaft or something? Also when its in a complete stop and i stomp my foot on the gas it wont burn out? It doesnt even leave tire marks on the street? At times il be driving around and i try stomping on the gas and it takes a while for the transmition to down shift? Its an automatic. Whats wrong with my car?? I have not done anything to the car since i got it. It does not have an engine light on, could it need a tune up or something?

---------- Post added at 05:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:05 PM ----------

The tires are really worn out, could that be the reason why its so slow?

Is it 100% stock? Try mass air flow sensor cleaner , check your fuel pressure and pump!

Upgrade your gears to 3.73 or 4.10s ,

Stock 94-95 mustang only have 180-185 horsepower to the rear wheels!!

That and it's an auto, I have mods and on dry pavement mine won't burn out just stomping the gas.

yes^
simple formula average drivetrain loss = 17% this is a hair more on auto and hair less on manual

225 x .17 = 38
225 - 38 = 187

I want to fix this issue with my car which i dont know what it is, and i also want to get it to 280rwhp. What upgrades do i have to buy to make it get 280rwhp? Could a cold air intake, racing spark plugs, wires, racing injectors, headers, flowmaster, racing chip, fix my gear ratio & maybe a manual transmition, will that give me 280rwhp? Or what else do i need to get 280 rwhp? Any cheeper upgrades to get big power on a 95 5.0 mustang gt?

Cheap upgrades to big power, other than nitrous oxide, no not really.


Install a Trick Flow Top End Kit.
One of the kits will net you around 360 HP and 350 ft lbs of torque.
Since you have an auto trans I would do the 4.10 gears in the rear end.

C-4 I wouldn't do 4:10s I'd go 3:73s on a hwy car. If you have AOD auto 4:10s be ok. IMO

---------- Post added at 08:16 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:14 AM ----------

4:10s with a C4 rpms a Lil high at 70mph. And temp wants to climb a bit higher

True.
I assumed he had the AODE.
Personally, I wouldn't ever bother with a C4 for a street car.
The AOD is nothing more than a C4 with overdrive and that is the transmission I would use for a street driven car.

The savings in fuel alone would soon pay for any extra cost in building the AOD.

I personally love the trickflow cams, i have the stage 1 cam now, but Comp-Cams are a great company but you also need to know what heads and intake match the power range with the cam!!

Just a cam is not going to give you that kind of HP increase.
You have nothing else to support it and without supporting mods a camshaft change could actually give you less power than you currently have.

I love the sn95s u just need to know a thing or 2 about them. If what ur after is more instant throtle responce then id swap out ur dual roller timming chain for a nice noisy accu drive timming gear set and throw a 410 or 373 rear ring and pinion gear in ( u should have an aode trans and a stage 2 shift kit wouldnt hurt) none of these mods increase hp but will make it feel like u have more by using what u do have more efficantlly. When it comes to adding hp skys the limit ive seen 900hp blown 302s in these cars and there far from slow the sn95 platform is based almost identiclly on the fox body so there still pretty light. U need to decide what direction u want this car to go. Dd car race car thats dd forced induction or na or strictlly off road strip car. Figure that out and we can give more advice on what parts to get and which are a waste.

Sure there are some major hp sn95 but there not running the stock ecu granted that putting the right combo together is key but the 94 95 ecu are not very friendly and don't take we'll to changes. If u got around that without spending a grand on software please enlighten me but from what I have read is a real pain in the pants m2c

My first 95 GT was full bolt-on's - a tb and I didn't have ecu issues till I chipped it(sct) my buddy had one full bolt on's plus an E-cam and a 100 shot with no issues.. My point is each car is different, I have a feeling Ford made some changes at some point so some are worse then others.. That's just an observation/guess not a fact

My buddy is a mustang specialist and he said that you can get a SCT 4 Bank Eliminator chip and that will accept modifications over the stock ECU. The stock ECU on the 94-95 was an experiment gone wrong, thus explaining why they only used that ECU for two years.

I have a full intake, ignition coils, BBK shorty headers, BBK x-pipe with dual magnaflow mufflers, and I hope to have a chip soon. But mine runs pretty good. I have heard the chip opens up a lot of available horses that are being kept under lock and key by the stock ECU. I like your car by the way! It looks good! 😃
