I read it added 8hp to the GT. But nothing too drastic. Quarter mile at 12.7 with stock auto. I personally don't like the front end changes. I'm going to stick with my 2012 for a while. Ha.

Reading on another site (allfordmustang) someone bought the 2013 pistons from Ford Racing and they are slightly different than our pistons. They had a complete thread with side by side pictures of them.

The color. I love the styling changes to the '13, even if it does somewhat dilute the GT500 image. I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be the last of the mustangs as we no the brand. I'm sure the 15 will be awesome, but I think it will be a lot more modern than the s197s.

I can see that and I share your fear of the mustang brand heading down the "mustang II" path again. I had that fear the moment I heard the ford spokesperson say we want a " European economical design" on an American muscle car? I guess I love the school bus yellow on the account of the 1970 boss mustang that I fell in love with. Fortunately since 1964 the mustang has had a color and model for everybody.

I doubt it... it wont plug and at least for sure, I saw a YouTube video of the reverse lights and it uses the same middle LED from the actual brake/signals... if it does fit I'm sure u have to mod... I hope there is a way cuz I really like these the lights
