My guess is that the adjusted Mustang in 2009 or 2010 will have the front grille of the Shelby and some other subtle cues.

There is not going to be a massive overhaul in the looks department on the next Mustang. It will only be a relatively minor modification to the current generation.

Yeah I bet it will only be around 350hp especially if they are still working with the 4.6L engine. Ford's new engine line is still in the rumor stage.

Ford will release other special editions like Bullitt and Boss Mustangs to fill the power gap between the Mustang GTs and the GT500s.

Ford does have a supercharged 5.4L engine sitting in the GT500 that could find its way into the Mustang GT or some special edition Mustang in normally aspirated form.

Hell yeah i'd love to see a 5.4 naturally aspirated make it into an affordable ( under $35K) mustang. lets see my 5.8 truck is a 351 so that would make the 5.4.. a??? 4.6 is a 289 right.. 302 i thought was 5.0 I'm guessing 3.27 for the 5.4 then???

The Ford 5.4L is a 331ci engine. The 4.6L is a 281ci engine. It would be cooler if it was 289ci like the old 1st generation Mustangs, but no it just a 281ci.

For all their faults ... I have to give Stang owners one thing, at least they don't drive imports. I dunno, it seems every year there are more and more of these tuners popping up everywhere. I used to see a guy driving a Mustang and think "hahaha" but now I'm glad that there are still Muscle cars (even a lower species of muscle car like a Mustang) out there now a days.

After driving the old roomates fox body 93 Cobra, I found a great deal of respect for the Mustang. That car was nuts and given the opportunity, I'd BUY one any day. Those older Cobras were the $#%t!

The only Mustangs I've come across that have had some balls are the ones that have been modded out to all hell. I haven't come across a Cobra personally, I hear they are pretty bad ass. Nothing your SS couldn't handle though

I wish he still had it. I love to run him. But that was years ago. Now, he's in...drum roll...an 01 SS.

Hey is that 12.88 @ 109 on street tires or drag radials?

That is about what I am running at the track. I have few more mods by way of exhaust and gears, but I'm not heavily modded either.

DOT's. My regular old tires. Actually, in my last Z28, I ran a better 12.76 on street tires. 19-20psi is what I lower the tire pressure to.

Cool, I know this is all off topic, but what were your 60 foot times on the street tires?

I'm trying to find a good street tire, because I am running some all season Nitto 450s at the moment and they can no longer really maintain any kind of traction for me.

I found this quote from a Mustang News site, and didn't want to make a new thread for it. This one seems fitting enough:
Quote:
For the mainstream Mustang budgets, Ford seems to be in a rut lately of delivering nothing more than a lot of hype, stickers, and emblems for the Mustang enthusiasts.

Where’s the beef? If the information coming out about the Bullitt is true, Ford had better start doing better than aftermarket parts kit specials by 2009 or the Camaro and Challenger will be having a good breakfast.
