This year’s Mustang came with huge changes to many 1996 Ford Mustang parts. After almost 40 years, the 302 V-8 was retired and replaced with a new 4.6 liter “modular” V-8. These new 1996 Mustang parts in the GT made the same power as the outgoing V-8, and ended up being slightly slower than the old engine. However, the new 96 Mustang parts were smoother and quieter than the old engine, and could meet emissions requirements, which the old V-8 couldn’t any longer.
The 1996 Ford Mustang parts on the Cobra were also revised for a version of the new engine that had with dual overhead cams and 32 valves, making more power, at 305 horsepower and 300 pound feet, than before. These new 1996 Mustang parts on the Cobra didn’t make the Mustang the fastest muscle car available, but it was certainly more competitive. Power to the V-6 was also slightly increased. Few other 96 Mustang parts were changed, except those needing revised to accommodate the new engines. As a result of the big engine change and few other changes to 1996 Ford Mustang parts, sales plummeted 27%, to 135,620.
