94-97 GT had 215, the 98 GT had 225. I guess they underrated the 94-95 GT being the Cobra was 240. I duon't know for sure, that's what i have heard.

94-98's all essentially run the same E/Ts stock. Although the power curve on the 94-95s is better than the 96-98s. The 94/95 Cobras are weak, thanks to a crappy stock computer. An A9L computer retrofit on a 94/95 Cobra works wonders.

AMEN! although theres rumors that the 94/95 gt's had 225...i dont want to get into it but a stock 95 gt would take a stock 96 gt. 96-98 4.6 gt's were dogs/are dogs unless you do a head swap.

from my experience (owning both) the 94-98s all seem to run similar E/Ts. They're all essentially 14 second cars stock. Some have gone high 14s, others have gone low 14s. Although I'll give the 5.0 SN95s a tenth or two advantage due to their power curve. Either way all 94-98 GTs were "dogs" in that aspect bone stock. The were all fairly heavy and made lackluster power. 14 second E/Ts are respectable, but with todays standards thats nothing to fear.

From the knowlege I've gained from this wonderful site, here's my 2 cents. The 5.0s had lower peak power curves than the modulars giving an advantage off the line. But the cammed GTs would then catch up as they got higher up in gear. So my conclusion is the entire race would be a back and forth run ending virtually simultanously.

Those 5.0 guys will never accept that fact though, never.

i know....i have a 5.0 too... ?

but thats a general statement. a 5.0 can easily have awesome top end with a good intake. *cough* trick flow *cough*... i love my huge valves cant wait for cam!

but in stock form what you said is right, most of us know that.

i believe the 94/95s have a better top end then the 96-98s. The 5.0 is a big time over square engine (4inch bore and 3 inch stroke.) That makes for a hell of a revver, the only reason it isn't one is because of the limits of the stock cam, E7TEs, and the long runner intake. Thats how the 5.0 managed to have a decent top end, but make torque at the same time.

I don't know what they were thinking when they designed the 4.6 A square engine with overhead cams. The 96-98s make peak power somewhere in the mid 4's. My 5.0 pulled harder in the top end then my 98 did with stock heads.

Us 4.6 GT guys have managed to turn some decent e/ts though

I have heard of that before. I aslo had A9L computer in my 90 GT... I recall seeing somewhere that my 90, running the specs through Ford was rated 240HP stock (A9L). Anyone else heard of this??

Maybe it was a typo on the Web..
