Posted 4/11/2016 by Phillip Perez

Do you ever find yourself searching for the factory specs on your 1996 Ford Mustang? If so you have definitely come to the right place!

In 1996 Ford overhauled the Mustang entirely. The 5.0L was dropped an replaced with Ford's all new single overhead cam 4.6L and dual over head cam 4.6L, producing more efficient HP and TQ. Ford also dropped the T-5 in the GT and SVT Cobra then replaced it with a stronger T-45 5-speed manual. A new automatic transmission, dubbed the 4R70W, was also introduced to the Mustang line up. The SVT Cobra was introduced with a new Mystic color option!
