buying new stang!! :-D

So I'm looking to buy a new mustang. Which body style is best for performance, and weight distribution, the 4th gen or the 4 1/2 new edge?

The 5.0 block will split after 500hp and will get about 12mph at 400. So I'm wanting probably a 4.6. I want decent mpg and I've heard the 4.6 is far superior.

Are you talking about the push rod 5.0? Did you mean 12mpg? If so, I didn't know they made that many mpg's?! That's fantastic!

Not sure what they weigh from the factory.

I've added kenny brown front and rear strut tower braces, double subframe connectors, jacking rails with matrix bracing, k member brace and irs forward torque brace.

Car is currently at 3650 without removing spare tire or anything. Goal is under 3500 street trim.

Yup, I think so. I believe he has a 95 v6 and was investigating a 5.0 swap for a bit.

I remember about 7 yrs ago reading in a 5.0 magazine that there was a red fox pushing 800 hp still getting 20 hwy mpg, my 300 hp fox was still pushing about 32 mpg when I had it back in 08
