underdrive pullys have been known to slow down accesories too much, (not all, and not always) causing alternators to lose charging abilitys as well as causing over heating because they slow down the waterpump too much, so if all other things fail try putting your stock pullys back on.
its. your grill and fog lights. you need air flow to your radiator to cool it down, and if there is ANYTHING in the way it will start to overheat thats what i would put my money on. the under drives dont harm cooling, dont worry about those.

Plans Stroke It And
Actually spyder there have been alot of cases of underdrives causing overheating, especaily while sitting idle at traffic lights, because not all companys underdrive to the same specs. (pays to go for the better companys) It was even mentioned in a 5.0 issue 'couple of months ago.
It might not be 95mustang's problem but if all else fails its one more thing that can be taken off the list.
