A guy told me that for our years, ford changed the intakes to a thunderbird intake! HE said that this lost like 10hp over the previous mustangs (which is made up with the electric fan) anyhow, this guy knows alot about stangs, and said that putting another intake will really wak ethe motor up. is this true that we have them intakes stock>?

I always thought the change was because Ford needed to lower the engine height to run a lower hood.

My friend has a 95 thunderbird with the 4.6L engine (came stock, same motor as the 96-98 mustang). Isn't that intake completely different? Or is our intake off of an earlier thunderbird?

Yes that intake is different. Take a look under the hood of a 92-93 Thunderbird with a 5.0.
