I think you should keep the fox. The fox is lighter than the 96 gt. Also, the fox is a lot cheaper when it comes to buying parts.

The 96 does not have a 5.0, it has a 4.6L DOHC. Sell that 96 and get busy with the foxbody!!:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup

Or keep the fox, sell the 4.6 and get a nice street/strip converter, sticky tites and some suspension amd youll keep up with the manuals:bigthumbsup

Your going to get very biased answers here so I will also say keep the fox and you can beef you that auto of your cheaper than swapping over to a manual.

I'm not against 4.6L cars. I think there are some really nice new edge and sn95 cars out there. But the 96 is the most anemic mustang built since the early 80's. It's just a bad year for the 4.6...keep the fox.:bigthumbsup

the 96 is a much better driving, braking, handling car, not to mention the interior is far better than a Fox..a PI swap will easily boost the HP to a respectable level...
sell the Fox

Asking on the 5.0 section is going to get you 5.0 answers, asking on the 4.6 section will probably get you 5.0 answers too :smartass:

its cheaper to build up a 5.0 but I like the sn95 bodys better. You could always sell them both and buy a 94-95 gt and get the best of both worlds.

i agree with 2many stangs. keep the 96, sell the fox and do a PI swap on the 96 to boost the hp to new edge 4.6L hp and torque levels
