Hey Folks,

A guy over here who was considering a Bullitt for performance (he said he could care less for the rest of the package) told me that he decided to wait for the 2002 GT. Apparently he heard that all 2002 GT's will have our intake and drivetrain. Personally it doesn't matter to me if Ford does offer it on the new cars because I'm very happy with my purchase regardless; and it will always remain special to me. Anyway, can anyone over there confirm or deny this rumor. Cheers,
Arthur

I read over at Stangnet that the only change for the GT was the MACH 1000 Stereo and the addition of an MP3 Player.

Personally, I hope that Ford doesn't offer the Intake on the GT For 2002. I wouldn't be surprise if the Mach 1 has the same engine and suspension as the Bullit. That would end up making the Mach 1 and Bullit mechanically the same with cosmetic touches being the only difference.

I think it would be great if Ford put the Bullitt intake on the 2002. We all know the base GT is really lacking in hp, compared to the Camaro and Firebird (our mortal enemies on the road) and numerous other foreign models. They should use anything they can to get those numbers up to compete with and stay ahead of the rest. If it means using our intake, I say do it.

The latest word I got on the Mach 1 was that it is going to contain the 4.6 2v motor not the cobra motor and it will have the shaker hood which at present may or may not be functional. However, your info may be better than mine.

I might be off on this, but did it ever say the Mach 1 would have the Cobra 32? I thought it was going to have the mass production 32 like in the Lincolin. I would think SVT would stop any attempt at an SVT powered Mach 1, and you have to remember the Cobra motors are hand built. I read in articles "32," but I do not recall seeing anything say it was the same motor as the Cobra...am I wrong on this?

All articles that I have read indicate it will be the 4.6L 2V motor. The lincoln 32 valve is a 3.9L. I heard it will be the 4.6L 2V motor with performance mods like the Bullitt (ie intake, etc.) with possibly the functional shaker hood.

I agree, I think SVT would have a problem with the cobra 32V motor being placed in non cobra vehicles - it would make the cobra harder to sell.

There is another 32 valve motor, the one that was in the Mark VIII. I'm assuming that was the motor that was going into the Maurader? If this is the case, that motor was rated at 300hp, putting it under the Cobra.

Ford dealer info on the 2002 GT shows the drivetrain to be the same as the 2001. The only difference I've read about is the Mach 1000 stereo. The Lincoln Mark VIII has a 4.6L 4v engine, which is what the Marauder engine will be based on. It is NOT the SVT Cobra motor.

JB VOBRA - the picture you supplied I beleive is from the concept Mach 1 that showed up at Mid-America Car Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma (which is displayed on stanget.com also). However, I beleive it is just a concept and not the actual Mach 1 that will be going production. The body however is supposed to be the same as the concept. The motor in that picture is actually the cobra all aluminum 32V motor with a modified intake and functional shaker hood. As far as the 32V in the Mark VIII I'm confused currently they don't make a Mark VIII I beleive. I beleive their is a concept Mk9 though - is that what you meant? As far as the Maurader - the 32V motor is the cobra's 32V motor - just follow this link: http://motortrend.com/june01/marauder/marauder_f.html and it talks about the Maurader's motor.

I just found the info on the Mark VIII. You meant the 98 Mark VIII not an new Mark VIII. You confused me at first I was wondering if Ford was making a new Mark VIII all of a sudden. The motor in the 98 Mark VIII is a 4.6L 32V motor I beleive its the same motor as the cobra. To date Ford has only produced one 4.6L 32V motor and that the cobra motor.

I don't know why Team Mustang is so afraid of what the SVT guys will do.Put the good guy engine in the Mach 1,and keep happy customers. If I recall,during 1968 1/2,69 and 70,the SHELBY Mustangs shared the the same CJ 428,as the top line engine,with the other Mustangs,like Mach 1 and Grande. Nobody in the Shelby camp went crazy and jumped off the roof then,so why now. They need to cut out this crap. I just want some good HP in a Mustang!

Hey....some cool rumours! Can't wait to see what really happens.

In reality, what happened to our 18" wheels and smaller edge trunk spoiler on the concept Bullitt.

Concept is a concept until built. I also heard that it was a 2V motor as well.

Regardless....should be a neat thing!

If the 2002 Stangs have our parts on them...great. Enjoy. I have been enjoying my Bullitt since I got it and didn't want to wait through another summer for the "next best thing".....because after that "next best thing" comes "an even better thing"....so I am very content with my "next best thing"!!!!
