So I'm looking to buy a new mustang. Which body style is best for performance, and weight distribution, the 4th gen or the 4 1/2 new edge?

Can't go wrong with a 5.0.

^agree.....but newEdge is the sexiest imo
The 5.0 block will split after 500hp and will get about 12mph at 400. So I'm wanting probably a 4.6. I want decent mpg and I've heard the 4.6 is far superior.

Are you talking about the push rod 5.0? Did you mean 12mpg? If so, I didn't know they made that many mpg's?! That's fantastic! :D

What is the weight of the 4th gens and weight of the new edges?
I know my '04 GT weighs 3675lbs!.. But that's with a full tank, 2 car seats, 2 strollers, and me in the car!.. I'm about 185!..

Isn't yours a '03/'04 Termi Vert?!?..... I didn't think they were heavy!...
Not sure what they weigh from the factory.

I've added kenny brown front and rear strut tower braces, double subframe connectors, jacking rails with matrix bracing, k member brace and irs forward torque brace.

Car is currently at 3650 without removing spare tire or anything. Goal is under 3500 street trim.
