    What does a stock 2 valve stang run in the 1320? Do they respond well to mods?
    Also is there a difference in the motors between the sn95's and the newer '99-'04 gt's?

    The 4.6 2v's can make power, but nothing outrageous without some money. The new-edge 4.6's have PI intake which is a major restriction on the older 4.6's. There are swaps out there to convert the old 4.6's to PI and I believe it costs around $1-2K

    So the new-edge 4.6's have more potential. Is the extra power noticeable in the newer ones?

    The 99 and newer 4.6's are way better than the old NON PI versions, if you have a choice...........make the right one PI :) in either a part swap or the entire engine assembly

    96-98 4.6s have diffrent heads, cams and intake then the 99-04 4.6s which is why the older ones made 215-225hp and the newer ones made 260hp. i'v swapped the newer cams in and put the new intake on and it makes a huge diffrence in power.

    It should better say "Some 96-98 are slower but any of them is much sexier!"

    Just do it the easy way like me and get the dohc motor :khobra: That's a noticeable difference over the 94/95 gt's.

    Hey you can't deny it.

    With a few mods the dohc will rape any slightly modded sn more than it does stock.

    I still think my gt in its current setup would put up a very good fight against the snake though.

    Once i was PI swapped and Cammed i never had a problem with N/A Cobras. I do think that some of the Cobras i beat were not driven properly but a win is a win :khobra:
