Seriosly that car will SUCK.

The NA mod motors BLOW. Then your buying a 2 valve, which are even more pitiful. I dont even think the 98s are the PI heads, which are insanely scktacular.

Dont buy the car, it will be EXTREMELY slow til you get pretty far into mods.
I watched a car JUST like this get walked by and intake and exhaust automatic scion tC, call BS all you want but it happened twice in a row, once from a roll once from a dig.

And why trade your car when you have a K series on order, which will be delivered in justa few months?

Oh and youll love working on the mod motors in those cars. IT SUCKS. I can do timing belts on most hondas in under an hour.

I wont even attempt to install LT headers on a SN95 or new platform. Screw it. Those motors suck to work on and the power you get from mods make it even less worth it.

That order got cancelled and I got my deposit money back...had a change of heart and dedcided that school payments were more important than an engine, and would save me from loans in the future.

The only question you actually asked was:
Quote:
Also, how does the 4.6 liter v8 compare to the 5.0 from the previous stangs
You never actually asked anything about the trade, despite saying "the reason i ask".


How's that for comprehension?

No, I asked if anyone has any knowledge about that mustang...funny how everything has to be specifically pointed out to you, and that you cant understand an implied question in something

so, what you're saying is that your idea of "reading comprehension" is me being able to understand what you're saying, even when you don't say it.

Don't bitch about people not answering a question never asked. Sure, maybe there was a question implied there, but what about my question? Okay, I'll word it a bit more nicely.

What has happened to change your mind regarding domestic cars?

I did say it.

Nothing really changed my mind, I still think they are rattly, and not very well made aside from the engine and drivetrain, and are not engineered up to par with their Japanese and European competitors, but they are things I can live with given the performance that a GT offers..unforunately like Enthusiast said, that 4.6 isnt the best to mod, plus the car is already gone nor is it an all season driver because the back end is light as all shit. Working at a dealership now, I can get a lot of experienced feedback on my choices as far as quality and such go since my boss has been doin his job for quite some time, but its up to me to reach out and get more info cause hes in his 50s and doesnt know shit about modding, he just has his 911 turbo and hes OK lol

Its not their superior performance, they certainly dont all outperform other cars, but with cars like the new Saturn Aura, and the F150 being a very solid truck, I duno I just kinda opened my eyes and realized that not all of them are piles of shit

Your retarded.

The mustang is a fine all season driver, if you dont act stupid. All these people bitch about RWD in the rain and snow, and FWD is better. FWD is only a crutch so people can act stupid in bad weather and stay out of trouble.

My car has always had UHPS tires or better on it and I drive it no matter what. Even in light snow it is no problem.


If your worried about driving it in the winter, stay with FWD. Youll hurt yourself with a real car.

Plain and simple domestic performance cars can go faster for the same invested in an import.

I talked to a guy who is on his 6th mustang already (and this is the second cobra) and he said that even the v6 ones are not drivable in the snow, he tried every year and they didnt move. You live in texas where it snows every time president bush makes a smart statement, I live in PA where it snows every winter, and sometimes hard too
