I own a 1994 gt manual with little mods like pulleys and exhaust system, I spent about 1500$ Canadian on it and I run 14.2 quarter mile with it. Now the new mustang are faster than a stock gt, but with a little over a thousand dollars you're able to keep up with them and if you get an inexperienced driver you could go up to blowing him away. This is my dream car, and it's a car that will give you so much response out of a modification. My stock GT was running 15.1 sec on the 1/4 before.

Here's a little tip for those shattering fog light bulbs. add some electrical lubricant into the bulb sockets. I did this, and my fog lights stopped shattering.

I've owned a 94 GT AODE Mustang for almost 4.5 years. I LOVE it! It has been easy to modify, and the stock 302 is still running great with 152,000 miles on it. I've also been running Nitrous on the car for about 9 months with no problems at all. With only 3.73 gears, a cat back exhaust, and a built tranny, it runs 14.9s in the 1/4 mile, and 13.37 with 100 shot of Zex.

I own a 95 gt and I love it and never plan to sell it. I have only done a few mods to it and I run a 14.9 1/4 mile time that's my best so far. I ran this with only three mods exhaust, pulleys, and cold air kit.

I've had my '94 GT Convertible for five years now and I plan to keep it for as long as I am able to drive. While not the fastest car I've ever owned, it has been the most fun car. I have made a few modifications aesthetically only, it still has the stock 5.0 and with a 3.55 rear gear it gets 20 mpg all day long. With either the top down and the speedster tonnau in place or the removable hardtop with side scoops, it remains an attention getter where ever I go in it.
I have replaced the manual transmission, clutch, and pressure plate about 10,000 miles ago. It now reads 185,000 on the odometer and the engine shows no signs of slowing down.
This car has given me more bang for the buck than anything else I've ever bought. Its fast and sexy, but mostly its just plain fun to drive and own!

I've had my '94 GT auto convertible for 2 years now and I love it. It now has 206,000 miles on it, all original, no mods. And cosmetically it's in great shape.
I haven't put any money into it other than standard maintenance like filter and fluid changes and hoses.
Not to say it doesn't need work. I haven't had a working cooling system for more than 4 months now, and I was driving 100 miles round trip to work each day. But the 5.0 runs almost cold the entire way unless I totally gun it, then it warms up a little. And it has a slow oil leak, not a big deal.
I've got to say this car was a great deal. I love driving it. It looks great, it's plenty fast, and I love putting the top down. I feel like a million bucks driving it.

Your thermostat may be stuck open and this is why your car never seems to warm up. They are really cheap and make a good do it yourself project. Good luck.

I bought a 94 Mustang gt about a year now and I find it to be an amazing car! The body was upgraded to a 98 cobra with new paint job and he put in a performance exhaust as well as cold air intake and other small details. Would not change it for the world, especially not for a Z28. They might be faster stock, but with a couple of mods you have a better looking and maybe even faster car. I'm looking to put the 3.73's in it, does anyone know how much horsepower that would add?

Gears will not change your horse power any at all. It will make your acceleration quicker by changing your gearing ratio from the motor to the wheels.
To keep this on topic, My girlfriend recently purchased a 94 GT convertible auto, and I must say what a fun machine to drive. I drive a 04 Mustang myself, which yes is faster, but there's nothing like jumping in her car, laying the top back and going for a cruise.
The car has ~111000 miles on it and the thing still runs great - no fluid leaks and seems to be in great condition, minus the fact that the top needs to be replaced. What a joy these cars are.

The way I see it with the whole Z28 vs. GT situation is completely disproportional. The Z28 came stock with the 350, where the GT only came with the 302. If one were to like the GT up with the Camaro RS with the 305 (both being stock) say goodbye to the Camaro. It seems kind of unfair comparing the GT to the Z28 with the motor difference. Throw the same size Ford motor in a Mustang that a Z28 has. Ford motor being the 351, then see if the Camaro has much.
I own an all stock 94' Mustang GT with a t-5 5 speed in it. Nothing else done to it and I'll smoke 305's all day. So compare the motor size before you make your opinion. Look at the specs and not the car.

Could anyone tell me how much gas mileage does a stock 94 Mustang GT with a 5 speed get?
21st Jan 2009, 11:28
Gas mileage varies widely. My late brother owned a GT and got over 22 mpg highway with it. If you drive hard, your mileage will plunge. My last 5.0 V-8 Mustang got between 11 and 15 mpg. That is lower than most.
I'd not expect over 15 city and 20 highway with a '94 GT. Do a good tune-up, use a K&N air filter and full synthetic oil and that will help.
After I got rid of my last 5.0, I bought a new 4.0 V-6. It has more power than my 5.0, is faster 0-60 and gets 21 in town and about 25-27 on the highway. It isn't as fast as a new V-8, but for a savings of 40% on insurance, $5000 up front and one less second 0-60 it is well worth having a bit less power. One second isn't worth $5000 to me.

I had a 1994 5.0L and it was a very fast reliable car. I just recently upgraded to a 2005 Mustang V6 and it's fast, and better acceleration and better gas mileage. You can get little parts for the 05 like cold air and throttle body that really speeds things up. I had it for 2 years and I was tired of GTs always tailgating and passing me, so I just supercharged it and the 2005-2010s don't know what hit them. I'm throwing out about 350Hp compared to 315 on the GTs and I'm lighter.
The 1994 was amazing and I have 0 regret in getting it. I purchased it in 2003 with 100 000km. I got a BBK cold air intake and throttle body which really worked well with the 5.0L. I also got a little shop near my house to make a custom dual exhaust for it from scratch for 900 and it screamed, it was the deepest loudest exhaust I have heard and it turned heads. They are nice little cars to do up and when they are done they look amazing. I live in rural farmland Ontario. The roads are all flat and there are never any cops. I had the 94 one day going past the 200km per hour on the speedometer. Now on the 05 I had it past the 200km and still accelerating.
And if any of you Camaro fans are reading this, the 2010 Mustang destroyed the 2010 Camaro and Challenger in speed, acceleration and handling with lower HP. And I dare any Camaro to race a supersnake and see what happens!!
