    What is the fastest time a stock 96-98 GT can run in the 1/4 mile? What kinda times should I expect to run with my mods?

    98' GT, Stock except Mac c/a , factory 3.27 gears. 5spd
    May have been able to lower times a wee bit, with better tires.[still has stock B/Fs]

    People on the other forum I go on were saying these cars were lucky if they could get into the low 15's stock. I was like ummm I dont think thats right, both of you have hit 14's in your car stock?

    Dont ever go to Mustangforums.com those people are such dumb****s. They think the 96-98 GT's run high to mid 15's with a good driver in there.

    High elevation and/or bad driving, can make a BIG difference to 1/4 mile times.
    I have had an 89 LX 5.0, and a 91' LX 5.0
    They would run very similar times to the 4.6's . 14.91 and 14.83
    The pre pi. 4.6's are no firebreathers, but they're not real slow either.

    my 9.08 is in the 1/8th mile, which equals to 14.1 in the 1/4.

    That was before my gears were put in. still w/stock heads

    14.4 Stock with street tires? Sounds questionable. Not callin BS but that's a really good time for a stock GT on street tires

    How would a stock 96 auto GT Convert run, I do have flowmasters and an airfilter but that doesnt make much of a big deal.

    Yeah, I gotta tell ya...I think those #'s are a tad ambitious. I was with DiabloRojoStang when he ran his GT and I doubt seriously that a stocker will out run that car...especially on street tires. Every track is different though, so who knows. :shrug:
