:waveySold my 95 Mustang GT 5.0 I bought almost new in 97. Had only 54k original miles. Upgraded 10 years to 2005 Mustang GT 4.6 24k. I like how it feels and runs. Not sure though it is faster than my 5.0. It certainly sounds like its faster but that may be an illussion. I wish I could race my old 5.0 but its gone. What are the comparisons. Have I upgraded my power or is it just sound?:scratchchin

If your 5.0 was stock you went from 215 hp to 300 hp. I'd say there is a bit of a horse power gain

Yeah there is a nice hp gain as BENTS pointed out the numbers, and the S197 probably has about 300 punds maybe on your old stang. But also consider on average a S197 GT runs about mid to higher 13's stock with a decent driver VS your SN95 5.0 probably runs mid 14's stock with a decent driver.

Yeah the s197 is pretty fat looking and is also heavier than the SN-95.
Of course pushrod motors is the way of the muscle car so respect to your 302.
