Lowered 3/4 on an inch, subframe connectors, different intake manifold, wheels, no spoiler, good for 5-10 extra horses and better power curve I believe, correct me if I'm wrong guys

Forget the minor mods, what makes a Bullitt a Bullitt is the fact that it has a serial number.
You can make a GT look like a Bullitt and run like a Bullitt, but it never will have the serial number.
IMO (and seriously,,JUST my opinion...no offense to ANYONE) a Bullitt has to be Dark Highland Green, anything else is just pointless. That's what the original was, and that's what the revival editions in 01 and 08 should have only been offered in.

Google 2001 Mustang Bullitt specs. All of the info is there. I actually agree with you BP. And mine is True Blue. I would have rather had a DHG. Just so I could get the full Steve Mcqueen effect. I think black is the prettiest color though. Ironically, it is the black and the blue ones which will become the more valuable collector cars due to their limited numbers. Especially the True Blue as that was by far the least popular color...

Drop it on it's nuts and call it a day. Granted it takes a lot of money to properly lower a car past about 1.5". How low do you want to go? I liked the stance of my H&R Race springs until I did my IRS swap and went lower. I removed my front isolators for the H&R springs.

Again, like the hp, the published numbers are all over the board. As far as the blue ones, around 700 seems like the most common number. I've seen as low as in the 500's. Bullitt1075 will probably have a better idea as to the true production numbers.

They have neither from the factory... It is the exact same long block as the GT.

IMO the Bullitt's biggest advantage is the serial number as was already mentioned. You can lower a GT, you can remove spoilers, you can swap the better looking (IMO) Bullitt/Mach sail panels etc... but that biggest thing is the serial number. In NJ and many other states, this allows you to put collector insurance on it which means no inspections except a mileage check annually. Car has to be garaged and you have to have had a driver's license for 10 years but those are the only real requirements besides the serial #.

That's interesting. Here in CA, I don't think that we have anything quite that liberal. (Pun intended) They have historical plates but I believe the vehicle has to be much older. Yeah, not much difference performance wise between a Bullitt and a GT. Just a, kind of, half-assed factory bolt on car really. Probably, the brakes and the wheels were worth the extra $3500. over what the GT cost. But there are some things that are different that are not readily apparent. For instance, the pedals are better set up for heel to toe style driving. I could see where it would have been a decent package for someone who wanted a little better handling Mustang but didn't want to do a lot of bolt ons. If you go back and read the reviews when it was new, it was a bitter disappointment to the hardcore Mustang community. They were expecting a Camaro killer and the Bullitt fell short. I like mine though. Love the brakes. I do wish it was a bit faster though...

The Bullitt was supposed to be a 4V originally but the SVT guys freaked out, worried that it would take away from the Cobra that year. In 03/04 the Terminator was so ridiculous they did not care about the Mach.

Agreed about the Bullitt being a disappointment in all honesty. They are cool and you get a serial# car but nothing to really write home about. The intake is a nice piece but adds a good 30+lbs over the PI intake. The brakes are the big bonus IMO but a lot of GTs for sale these days have the full swap done too. Mine does, front and back Bullitt brakes and its a 98 lol.

With that said, I'd still get a Bullitt over a GT if the price/condition were similar.

Special side skirts as well. Also Tockio shocks/struts. And don't forget the special charcoal interior with special leather seats.

I just think the bullitt has more of a mustang feel with it the classic gauges and seats and shifter I don't like the standard new edge interior it just doesn't feel like a mustang to me idk why
