Questions,Questions,Questions....

Heres the thing..im making around 700 bucks a month (seņor in High school) and im looking for a car. I wanted to buy an import but they are too expensive to take care of ,unless they are a honda. But i was looking at the Vr-4s. To expensive to buy and to maintain.

Anyways...my car is for sale..people have offerd me 3500 for it...and they said to wait for them to get the money(2 people and others offer me 3000)...so...my brother called them and ask if he could have a car loan for me and he will co-sign..i made it for 5000 buckeroos...so..i have a 8000 dollar budget.

I decided completly now that I want a Mustang. From 1994-1998. A gt, and if it was cobra ,that would just be a huge bonus eh?

And so..to end this boring,long post..i want to know what would i be better off with...the 94-95(5.0) or the 96-98 (4.6)...i cant afford huge mods YET,but i can get air flowing and leaving.I understang 4.6s have more power stock,correct me if im wrong, but please someone enlighten me...
Out of which engine would I get more power of with just the minor mods(and possibly in the future, forced induction)?

Re: Questions,Questions,Questions....

If you go 96-98 I would suggest looking for a cobra.

Re: Questions,Questions,Questions....

i thought the 94-95 5.0 had 225hp? the 4.6 does have 215 tho. im pretty sure the 4.6 outperformes it stock... slightly. i say buy the 4.6 and get some pi heads. what you need to look for first tho is a 96-98 cobra. those are the best from that era.

Re: Questions,Questions,Questions....

you should really try to do 99gt if you can. just check around a little bit and maybe increase your budget slightly if you have to. the heads alone on the 99s make the previouse years not cost effective in comparison.
