How fast are stock 96-98 GT's?

I am thinking of picking up a 98 GT w/ an AODE for a daily driver, how fast are they stock, are the 5 speed cars much quicker than the AODE cars? Are they like the 5.0's 5 speed vs AOD, or are the 96-98 AODE cars better? I know that these years of the Mustang arent know for there performance but I am just looking for a Daily driver that is comfortable. Later on I might put some 4.10's and a dry shot to it.

The 98s have the 4R70W transmission which has gearing closer matched to the 5 speed. The 98 stock will do the quarter with a low 15 second quarter mile and the 5 speed will do it in a high 14 second quarter.

AOD-E was in '94/95 only I think. '96+ was the 4R70W I think. Drive one and see if you're happy with it. In any year late model Mustang you're going to take a huge hit in performance as opposed to a manual tranny. If you're using your car for a daily driver you might be happy with the benefits of an auto over the faster acceleration of a manual. I drive autos because I drive through DC traffic and I wouldn't want a manual. Your situation may be different.

My '97 GT 5-speed ran a best of 14.86 stock and I had a friend of mine that ran his '97 GT 5-speed on the same day and he cut a best of 14.57 stock.

Then why does everyone say that they are all so slow, seems to me that they are about as fast as a 5.0 stock for stock?

They are about as fast as the '94-'95's were stock. It just takes alot more stuff to make them quicker and are more expensive on parts versus the 5.0. The older fox bodies are quicker then us stock especially the coupes (2800lbs).

yep, they're slow stock, but you can always change that with mods and $. But anyways, IMO the 96-98 GT's are THE BEST looking Gt's ever made....maybe not the best looking mustangs, but def. best looking GT's.......so to each his own.

I ran a 15.3 my first time at the track. My mods are mac o/r h, mac cat back, 3.73 gears, k&n filter and a tri-ax shifter. My check engine light came on about 10 miles away from the track and the idle would surge and run like crap for a while, then go back to driving kind of OK. Found out that the MAF had gone bad along with the pass. front O2 sensor. I will hopefully be going back to the strip to get some better times. The fastest ET I had that day was 93 mph.

So if you are just looking for a comfortable daily driver why worry how fast they are? Just enjoy the ride and don't worry about the speed thing. The 96-98 GT's are pretty slow compared to the 99+ Mod motors. That's why everyone is doing the famous PI headswap which will take care of that deficiency and let the Mod Motor breathe. But since you are looking for comfort just get some plush seat covers and a pair of Fuzzy dice and you should be all set

Comfort will be first, but I can't stand to drive and I refuse to ever own a vehicle that can't even get out of its own way. Part of the Comfort factor for me is being able to leave everyone behind when I want to, or being able to merge into trafic with ease.

See my sig. It might not be blazing fast, but I will probably never trade or sell it. I love the design of the '96-'98's, both inside and out!

Before the PI stuff came out, there were plenty of people running low 14s and some 13s with a few bolt ons and gears. I ran 14.5 at 95 with just gears.

I think that it would be fair to say that a stock 96-8 GT can at least get out of it's own way and merge into traffic...some might disagree possibly though...

You shouldn't have any trouble accellerating when necessary or merging into traffic with your stang. It will still be faster than most of those 4 and 6 bangers on the road. So if that is your comfort level than you should be okay Now leaving "everyone" behind will be difficult. There is always somebody faster no matter what you do to your car. And the more you do to your car the less reliable it becomes and perhaps some of the comfort level drops in lieu of speed and performance enhancements. It all depends what you want to do with the car and what purpose it represents to you.

Daily, dependable, comfortable driver.... Don't look any further.
You already got it. But it seems that performance is an issue so do a headswap, add some gears and put a Performance Valve Body in your AODE tranny. Those things will make the car more fun to drive and will apease the performance demands that you put on the car...... at least for a little while
Once the performance bug has bitten you there is no stopping.
It never ends..... Believe me.... I was once where you are now,
happy with a stock stang... That lasted about 2 weeks and the rest is in the sig. And it never stops......

Good Luck

You better also indicate that your 9.15@77.9mph is on a 1/8 Mile track Last year I have been on one of those and did a 7.88 at around 89 mph

Damn, something must be rong with my car. I have a 98 GT with the following mods.

CAI
3.73's
Flowmaster mufflers
Tri-Ax shifter

I can not get out of thw 15's if my life depended on it. First time at the track with 3.73's best of 15.762 @88.46 with a 2.522 60' and missed 3rd. Without the gears best of 15.611 @88.42 with a 2.368 60'. I am racing at a track with 2100F elevation,but I still think I should be better than mid 15's. I have only been to the track twice and will be going back on the 7th and hope to get into the 14's. I know my driveing could improve but should I be in the 14's????????/ Thanks

IMO, you should DEFINATELY be in the 14's.....the 98 Gt's have 10 more HP than the 96 and 97 models....keeping that in mind, look at my sig. and at my mods.....your 3.73's alone should far outweigh any and all of my mods in my car which has 10 less HP stock......so yes, something is probably wrong with you car....hope this helps.

dont listen to the guy above me, because of your elevation you are running really slow. your 15.6 corrected to decent conditions would land you in the high 14s, at around 93mph.

get that 60' down and you could hit 14s and have it printed on your timeslip

Thats the last thing I'd call a non PI mod motor. They are "quick" enough to not be the slowest cars on the road, but they will get roasted by anything that is actually "quick".

I've seen 96-98 mustangs get spanked by Neons, Hondas and so on quite frequently...
