Mustangs Compared


     Ever wondered how your Mustang compares to others on the street? In this test I have combined performance numbers of various Mustangs, including 5.0 liters and 4.6 liters.
 
     Here are the test vehicles:
  1. 1989 Mustang GT 5.0 5-speed
  2. 1989 Mustang GT Convertible 5.0 AOD
  3. 1989 Mustang LX 5.0 5-speed
  4. 1994 Mustang GT 5.0 5-speed
  5. 1996 Mustang SVT Cobra 4.6 5-speed
  6. 1998 Mustang GT 4.6 5-speed

     The 1989 Mustangs are represting the 89-93 Cars. The 1994 Mustang was the next body style, which is heavier, but still a 5.0. The 4.6 liter is represented in the 96 SVT Cobra, and the 98 GT.
