They pretty much did increase the HP every new model. The 289 from the golden days makes more than the 260, the first 302 more than the 289, then you have 390's, 351s, it goes on and on. A 01 and a 04 are essentially the exact same car. The 99-04 being New Edges, got a bump in HP from 95-98(PI heads). The 05 got a bump (3v heads), obviously the new 5.0 did as well(4v, more displacement, vtakk)

96 - 98 was the first modular engines in the mustang. They had NPI heads. In 99 they re-did the style to make it more "edgy" hence the term "New Edge" style and increased power with their new improved PI heads. In 2005, with their new "retro" style, they wanted even more power and came out with the 3 valve heads to give the new mustang 300 HP. Now.. the new style again that came out for 2010.. They have even more, and the very new 5.0s are pushing 412 HP. Remember though, that in the early 90's.. we were just coming out of the crappy 70's and 80's style of boxy "fuel efficient" cars.. so mustangs were pretty well starved for power. Then in 94, the came out with the SN-95 style, but kept the 5.0 engine with some differences in design. It's been an increasing HP gain over the past 19 or so years, and as technology increases and tolerance in engine design get smaller.. things get better for us!! LOL

+1 all models have had power train changes... Some for higher power and some for not such good power

Just do a few mods to your new edge stang ( bolt ons) and set of good sticky tires and you will hang with a stock 05 GT

Re: 04 GT horsepower

be thankful that its not a pre 99 with only 215hp lol.... it was a very much needed jump but still behind the curve (should have been 300 for 99-04 and even more for 05+)

they take OK to mods but not great~ the key to 99-04 is the suspension mods and traction that is where the gains can be had for 1/4th mile times along with bolt ons etc.

Making 500 on a 4.6 is still going to be tough with a blower..

O really. I don't know of a single stock engine 2v at 500 hp. It's not that easy. You're gonna have to upgrade to a forged rotating assembly and some good heads at a minimum. Then upgrade trans and rear end to handle the power

What he said^^^^^
You can make over 500 hundred at the tires with a Stock two valve but not for long. You are on borrowed time making that kind of power on a stock bottom end. The PI motor is weak over 425rwp.

500+ hp is possible with these motors but you'll have to really build it up for that!.. A buddy of mine has a '98 GT with 620hp at the wheels!.. It is a 4.6 2V!.. But he also has about 10Gs invested in just the motor alone!.. Lol. And that don't include the price of the SuperCharger!.. Lol

I saw an 02 GT with his 2v original 4.6 have 617rwhp, he bought it brand new and uses it as his daily driver, had his dyno numbers to prove it, I plan dueing on the essentials, get a supercharger, thn latr on throw on a twin turbo n addition to the supercharger

Yeah... Motors that make 260hp stock don't just eat a ton of boost and crank out twice as much power without something failing, and quick. I wish it was that easy, but it's common sense that you can't take something designed to do work under certain tolerances, make critical changes to the environment in which it works, and expect it to kick *** forever. You can push the limits of the machine, but it's not going to function at 200% of it's original efficiency for long... It isn't designed to.

Your gonna get a supercharger then take it off to get a twin turbo put on? Why not just do the turbo first? Or your gonna put on a twin turbo in addition to the supercharger? Like your gonna have both on te car? I didn't know you could do that. I must be a bigger dummy than I suspected. Lol

Actually mine is a big, loud, clunky, slow piece of poo that looks like a skittle. just kidding. I love my car so much that I won't drive it when it's dirty because it doesn't reflect the level of care I give it.

Hey can any one tell me if and when I'll need to get a new MAF meter? Like what's the HP threshold for the stock one?

There's not an hp threshold for these so much as making sure it can pull in enough air to keep a consistent air to fuel ratio. Couldn't tell you what the limit is though

So unless I go forced induction I shouldnt need a new mass air meter?

Can't say for sure but I wouldn't think so. As long as your mass air meter and fuel injectors aren't trying to out work one another I wouldn't think so but don't take my word for it, I'm definitely not the person to ask about FI

Yes please don't post unless it's to contribute to the discussion of how to build horsepower on an 04 GT. part combos or build suggestions would be great!
