i believe only 87-93 had 4 bangers, not sure if the older generation had them, after 93 only V6 and V8 were made for the base models

I'll assume they had the 4's when they started the fox bodies. What a terrible idea they had with that engine. It sucked. I remember hitting about 160km per hr.....on a downhill. Lol.

IMO it's not that bad not sure the km/h MPH conversion but my 93 2.3l is pretty nice but I guess the cold air intake I put on helped a little bit I think it's a great motor

I would say its about 90mph. The engine itself was reliable and it ran just fine, but to have a nice looking lx coupe and no 5.0?? Lol, I had to change it. On top of all that I would get someone in a civic or camaro pull up next to me....and I couldn't do anything! It drove me nuts!!!!

Re: 4 cylinder mustangs

I have a '86 4 cylinder with a single barrel & automatic tranny. My car topped out at 100.2 MPH. And that's with a very accurate GPS on flat surface without wind.
