your joking right? the interior in every mustang from 64-04 rattles and shakes like crazy. I mean, they didn't change a thing other than the dash clock and the center console cup holders from 94-04. Don't buy a mustang if you are looking for a silent ride unless its an 05-06.

Re: Should I pick up a 5.0 or go Modular with 96-98 Gt's?

mine makes 1/4 of the noise than my 88/90. It is acually pretty quiet on the inside. It was the first thing I checked when I test drove it. It seems for some reason when you lower it alot it makes more noise. I have the sportlines which is like 2 14 inch drop or more, And it doesnt even come close to how loud my five oh's interior was. I dunno my roll cage did touch the side of my convertible braces so that might be it. I know the five oh's dash is a hella of alot louder though.

Re: Should I pick up a 5.0 or go Modular with 96-98 Gt's?

I'd totally get a 5.0

I was looking at super chargers on Vortech's site and found that the supercharger for the early 90's 5.0 are a helluva lot cheaper than a regular 4.6 pre 99 of course. And you see more power out of them! I was looking around for the type you are as of lately. I bet they are quite a beast if you turbo charge em.

i say go with a 5.0 also

put 3.73's in the rear, switch out that p.o.s. EEC for an A9L, headers back exhaust, cobra intake manifold, some 1.7 roller rockers, all the small bolt ons like under-drive pulleys, cold air, a nice MAF, advance the timing a little bit, and itll be a fun ride. It might not be all that fast, but itll be fun to drive

That is all I really want. A nice clean ride that is somewhat reliable (doesnt need a engine rebuild!) and is fun to drive

buy it if you want it, dont let it get away. You may have to ask for help until you sell your car but... if you let it get away you may never find another one.

:wstupid: you better see if either your parents will loan you the money. Or go get a signature loan and buy it. Then when you sell your car pay it off. If you found the car you want and you let it pass you wont find another one like it.

im with jimmy on the rattling noises an ****, dont buy one if your looking for a cadillac like ride...your not going to find it in anything pre 05..u say your 01 doesnt rattle..give it time, its still on the basically same platform your 88/90 is on. the best thing about the 87-93 foxbody mustangs is that they are so easily modified to do anything you want, the worst thing is the platform itself, subframes should be your first thing along with other minor suspension stuff.

at least a loan for 5k is pretty cheap payment wise. It will help your credit as well, but of course you need to be where you an pay it as well lol.

Re: Should I pick up a 5.0 or go Modular with 96-98 Gt's?

You could always get a student loan (I'm assuming your in college here). That's how I bought my car. My $3000 loan is only $35 a month. Of course, I think this over like 8 years or something crazy, but you can always pay them off early as you can afford it. I got mine from American Education Services.

Like everyone else is saying, if you find a black on black five speed in good shape like you want for only 5 grand, you need to jump on it as soon as possible. You not find another just like it that cheap for a long time.

Heres my take on it. You want a 94-98 style get a 98 with N/A 225 BHP and work from there. I have nothing against the 5.0 except many in the 94-95 range are tired and well used as well as the rest of the car. Also with just a head and intake change to the newer 99 stuff will get you a net gain of more HP than a 99+

My vote is for the 5.0....for sound, ease of modding/finding parts, reputation, and so you can be like vanilla ice and roll in your 5.0 with the girlies on standby....

Re: Should I pick up a 5.0 or go Modular with 96-98 Gt's?

Well me and Corey may have worked something out where I can get rid of my engine parts and sell my car for what I want for it.

If it goes down my car will be sold soon. After talking with him some I think I am going to try to find me a 97-98 GT Black/Black and when I get the money do the P.I. swap and go with nicer cams when I do that.

I am pretty excited right now and I hope it works out. I am ready to get into a solid car for a change and get behind some power. Looking forward to that exhaust note with a Off road x pipe and Magnaflows

I think in the long run the 5.0 will be cheaper, less hassel, and be more modable. But... just look around and see what deals come your way. I like the idea of getting a 98 due to its not as old and will be easier to fidn in good shape. I wouldnt go black ever, but since youve had a black car you know that it will NEVER be clean and always look like crap, minus the 10 minutes after you wash it, maybe 7 due to global warming.

nope pro- chamber is the best sound. I have had 3 combos. 90 saleen had ford headers, bassani x with cats/ bassani catback. 88GT had mac shorties, bbk with cats, flow catback. My 01GT has bbk shorties mac-pro chamber & flowmaster catback. The sound is untouchable. When I get a blower it's gonna sound sick!
Dont be mad every1 has their own opinion.

Dont be mad every1 has their own opinion.
The sheer fact that you can say "he has flowmasters" without seeing the car is a major turnoff for me. And the fact that i dont like how chambered mufflers sound is another.

After a paycheck or two, my TC is getting a dynomax ultraflow, and when my 5.0 goes in the car, itll probably also get ultraflows.
