After the initial fourth-generation offerings, the 1996 Mustang GT marked a time for some design improvements. The most significant among them? An overhead cam design for its new 4.6L V8 engine. While purists back then whined about this shift — and frankly, it didn't offer much in terms of a power increase — the design proved worthy in the long run. The 1997 and 1998 Mustang GT models made some slight improvements but kept things generally the same. Like the rest of the fourth gen, this is a solid platform to work from — and we've got plenty of parts to make yours downright lethal.
When shopping for 1996 Mustang GT performance parts, you might want to start with a few engine upgrades. Then, when you're ready to take that puppy to the next level, nitrous and superchargers will help get you there. You might even want to go with a new turbo system to blow away the competition.
The '97 model was almost the same as the 1996 Mustang GT, but it did have several special new color options, some of which are rare to come by now — like the 1997 GT exclusive Aztec Gold and Autumn Orange. When it comes to parts, aside from the aforementioned upgrades, you may want to look into transmission parts or new tires and suspension to keep things rolling.
Another year with minor changes, the '98 GT was the last SN95 model before the big "New Edge" refresh hit the scene. When it comes to 1998 Ford Mustang performance parts, if you've already boosted up your beast with the upgrades we recommended above, you might want to look into some body and styling mods or other accessories.
