My friend is considering selling his Z24 and getting a 99+ auto GT. I am trying to convience him to get a 5 speed. He asked me what the auto GT's normally run in the 1320. I am thinking mid to high 14's. Am I correct? Anyone with a auto please post your times/mods.

Well from what Ive read, anywhere between a 14.3-14.8 @ 96-98 mph. depends on weather, humidity, alltitude, track conditions and driver too. I have a auto and sometimes I love it (traffic, racing, cruising), but I could live with a manual too. A shift kit and gears (torque converter if youre a racer) and you should be at least even with a manual with similar mods.

I ran a 14.46 with gears, x-pipe, and mufflers at a crappy track so I would say stock I would have ran 14.60's stock on that track.. possibly a tenth better at a nicer track.......

Well we just got back from driving a 2000 red/tan Coupe GT. The car has 41,xxx on it and they were asking 15,8xx for her. Seemed a tad high to me but maybe Im wrong. It doesn't have the Mach 460 but it does have a cd player/tape player. I didn't drive the car but It seemed to ride like my 99. The car is all stock it seemed. We were running late so didn't pop the hood. The only concern I have with it is at WOT the car will not chirp second gear. Having never driven the auto 4.6's I don't know if this is normal for the car or not, but I found it rather odd.

The car needs an alignment real bad. You take your hands off the wheel and it starts to turn right. I didn't get the vin to run a carfax but we will do that if/when he decides to buy. The car over all is in good shape cosmeticaly. He has 4.10's/shift kit/torque converter/subframes in mind as mods. This being his first RWD/V8 car Im trying to keep him alive.

If anyone has any advice for what to look for/look out for when buying this car it would be helpful. We are going to put it on a lift/take it on a longer drive and then try to borrow it for the night to take it on our tests.

That is pretty pricey. I just picked up a 00 5spd with 37k on the odometer, Mach, leather, every option for 13,8xx. Look around, you can find a better deal somewhere.

Does anyone know what the invoice price is of a new 04 GT? The same dealership is doing a $49 over invoice on new GT's.
My friend really wants a blue or Min Gray car with the Mach 460. So we need to keep looking around a little bit. I thought that the car was a little high in price.

600 Foot Elevation track. Quickest run I saw with a 02 Stock Auto GT was [email protected] MPH. Auto were running 14.54-14.8 all night! 5 speed were running 14.18 was the quikest to 14.69 in stock trim.

So the 5 speeds seem quicker!!

With the stock EEC programming it shouldn't chirp 1-2 at WOT. If you do a J-Mod or get the right kind of chip it sure will though.

dammmmn I bought my 99 black GT 5 speed with 44.7K on the odo for 10,000, but I knew the guy and he just gave me more than what dodge dealer was offering him for trade in which was 9200.

Mine doesnt either. 2nd gear is way to tall for the displacement and valve body tuning to chirp second.

OK I was wondering about this. Thanks for the info.

So this car is way over priced. My friend wants a blue GT with the black leather and the bullits. So we still have to keep looking.


edit: What year did ford release the blue? Was it 99 or did it only come out after a few years? Also, what trans does the 5 speed 99's come with? The T5 or the T45?

edit #2: Who makes a shift kit for the 99+ AODE?

Ford has offered some sort of blue every year, 99-00 it was Bright Atlantic Blue and Atlantic Blue, then 01 they offered True Blue, then at some point they started offering sonic blue.

99s come with T-45, 01+ come with TR-3650

paid 11,900 my 2000 5-sp with 51k over a year ago. so, it's way overpriced in my book. keep looking, there are better deals. construction traffic always makes me want an auto. and i must just really really really suck at driving, cause with short throw shifter, mac catback and mac o/r h my best is 14.12. my normal is in the 14.20 to 14.30 range.
