2002 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl 5M)

Review

I bought the GT as a "second" car for fun and to be an owner of the most popular performance car ever. It's a good car - no big complaints. Acceleration is adequate given the factory gear ratio. Cornering and handling are merely average considering the weight of the vehicle. I got the Mach 1000 option and am only marginally satisfied with its performance considering the price ($1200). Build your own stereo system, swap the axle gears to a 3.73 or 4.10, add a Predator tuner, and buy a lowering/performance suspension system and you'll have a great car.

Favorite Features

Leather/power seating is nice. Mach 1000 is nice but could "do-it-yourself" better. Performance and aesthetic parts are readily available.

Suggested Improvements

The stock 3.27 gear ratio is brutal. The stock suspension performance is lacking and is way too high. Stock Gatorback tires are poor. Upgrades are necessary to make a great car.
