No, they all do the same thing. People will argue that there are different ones, but it is all in the tune.

Bullitts have an upgraded intake, and make about 10hp/tq more than GTs. It pretty much uses the same CAIs as the 96-98 Cobra. It is still a SOHC 2v though.

As you can see, it uses a twin throttle body instead.

depends on the driver...it's not enough of a power difference between the two to cause a big gap, but the bullit can edge out a standard GT if the driver is better.

The bullit comes with 3.73s too right? GT vs bullit the bullit should walk away

nope....just 3.27s

what makes them different is the visuals, the intake, the exhaust, and a few suspension differences

The 08 & 09 Bullitts came with 3.73, but not 2001

---------- Post added at 10:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:31 PM ----------

And the intake allows the Bullitt to have a better torque curve overall. It's able to use pretty much peak torque at 2k rpms
