I second your disagree


Anyways back to the OP, the check engine light is probably nothing too bad, like your dad said its more than likely the exhaust system.

As for the ABS light, my ABS was acting up, so I broke the sensors (rendering the whole system inactive) and put a peice of eletrcial tape over the light so it doesnt show up. I hate ABS, and I even DD mine in the winter in chicago.

But like everyone else is saying, going from a V6 to a GT is going to be worth it for you no matter what, and any money you put into the GT will be returned to you in smiles and happiness And it already has exhaust too!

Im not saying the one youre looking at now is the best one to buy, but test drive it and have your dad come along for the test drive and if everything seems to be in order that's a good price. And these 2v's dont die so 140k on the odometer is nothing.

Good luck!

90% of 94-98 cars are piles of **** and most are v6s usually driven by someone in their 40s who bought it new and never got out of that $16/hr hell cubicle that they started in. I pass a nice white 96-98 Cobra convertible most mornings going to work and when I'm in the blue car I give him a wave. As I've said in other threads, these cars are hitting critical mass where a clean well taken care of one is a head turner even if its just a bolt on car.

Definitely easier! Plus you have spare parts to take from if you have a place to store the donor.. But thats an old picture. I need to do an update on it... Maybe get some professional pictures done or something.

That is very true. More and more I get compliments on my 96 GT. It's just the typical loud bolt on version you're speaking of but it turns heads all the time. Get the "clean car" and "nice ride" comments all the time. Even got an offer for more than what it's worth, shouldn't have taken it: face palm. She has grown on me Over the past few years. Not the fastest, "coolest looking" mustang around but I'm still proud of it! That's why when I upgrade I will still keep her around.

From experience let it warm up to like 210 or half way on the dash thermostat and then let it sit and idle to check for oil burning. And also drive it like you stole it when you test it out

Be patient and wait for parents approval on a car. I wouldn't suggest pissing them off for a car. Especially if you rely on them housing and such.
There will be plenty of cars, and when you find one that your parents also agree on you'll be much happier with it.
Besides, I thought I could be happy with an automatic, three months later I sold it for a manual.
Bottom line, if you don't buy what you want, you'll never be happy with it.
Good luck buddy!

I hav mustang right now. 2002 v6. My dad wants me to build that up and supercharge it. But I want more horsepower, he thinks I'm wasting my money. But he doesn't understand that a supercharged v6 won't beat a supercharged gt

hahaha some of the guys on this site don't even understand that.... sell your v6 for what the guy wants the gt for then everytime you get extra money build on it... its a way better power plant then the sixxer.

also the v6 was made as a girl car, good on gas and slow... a GT is a mans car.

Started from stock and I added everything. And yes the reason I'm selling is cause I hate convertibles now. Liked it at first, but I just love the look of rear window louvers. Plus its a GT.

Scotty, you have a beautiful Mustang. For awhile I never liked the 94-98 body style. Prefer 99-04. Still do, but after owning my 98 I fell in love with it. I got my gt clean and bone stock. Only had to buy new tires, mach speakers, and the A/C module.

I have to give it to you. That sixxer is one clean car, no reason to why you couldn't sell it fast.

As was said if you count on your Parents' charity for housing/food/laundry services etc... or some combination of the above you might not want to piss them off. But if its cost neutral or close enough to it and you can show them you are responsible I'd go for it. Supercharging a V6 is an exercise in futility. Maybe a 4.2L but even then...
