Higher horsepower, torque and obviously looks.

Re: new edge difference?

The 99-04 2v 4.6L's in the GT's were all rated at 260 hp and 302 ftlbs tq.

The only major differences were in the engine designs based off which plant the engine was built in, either Windsor or Romeo. But these changes did not affect performance or actual power ratings.

They all had the 8.8" rearend with 3.27 gears and a 28 spline traction lok differential.

As far as cosmetics, the 99-00 GT's had the v6 scoops and some had 16" wheels.

The 01-04 GT's had the more aggressive scoops, 17" wheels and pedestal spoiler.

Re: new edge difference?

What do you mean? Difference from what?

A bone stock 99-04 Mustang Gt (New Edge) comes with 260 hp to the crank and about 230 hp to the wheels.

99 was the first year of the PI heads which gave them a decent jump in hp over the 98 and older Gt's. I believe a 98 Gt had about 225 hp stock, so when they upgraded the heads on the 99 and newer Mustangs, it gave them a good performance leap up to 260. Most 98 Gt owners who really wana see power out of there cars do a PI swap from a (New Edge) Gt.

Not sure if this answers your question or not but I hope it helps.

Well the 99-04's are all the same, but they are faster and have higher rated hp/tq than the 94-95 5.0's and the 96-98 2v 4.6L's.

So yes, if you want the fastest stock GT from 94-04, you'll want a 99-04 GT.

That PI addition to the 4.6L in 99 was huge...~45hp and 17tq after the H/C/I work.

Well in my opinion, the 99-04 Mustangs look 100x better, I think the 94-98 had a VERY sloppy design...no offense to anyone who has this model, I love Mustangs but I just hated that year, and along with the bad looks they only had 225 hp...So if you get the chance, get a new edge, its a HUGE upgrade IMO...You won't be disappointed, even the 99-04 New Edge 6 Stangs have decent power. I loved my old 00 V6.

I agree...obviously I'm a fan of any mustang but the 94-98's weren't aggressive enough for me.

The new edge v6/GT's received big power gains...215/225 to 260 for the GT and 145/150 to 190/193 for the v6

Well the biggest difference performance wise is the Performance Improvement H/C/I and the 3.27 gears vs the 2.73's in the sn95's.

Then there's the body redesign changes...if you can get one definitely do it...huge difference in power, feel and looks.
