3rd Gen Camaro - Fox-Body Mustang (the good, bad and the ugly)
Most car guys don't know the difference between the 230hp G92 optioned
models, or the 5-speed and automatic models, or the 170hp lackluster TBI
versions (not to be confused with TPI versions)... Mustang guys smoke the 170hp TBI
models, as well as the "run of the mill" TPI automatic models, and believe
they can do this to any and all. Well, not all 3rd Gen F-bodies are created
equal. Optioned from the factory with the 230hp TPI (not TBI) engine,
manual 5-speed tranny and 3.42 gears, these 3rd Gen F-body sleepers gave
5.0 Mustangs absolute hell.
In 1990 the G92 option code became a full performance package rather than
simply a rear axle option as in previous model years... GM also offered an
answer to the Saleen Mustangs by way of option 1LE, which
consisted of the G92 optioned without A/C and other creature comforts, and
the addition of Corvette brakes and other road racing equipment.
About the only way an IROC-Z Camaro could take out a 5.0L Mustang from this era was with
the Tuned Port Induction and addition of these performance options: G92,
1LE, L98 or B4C.
The TBI powered Camaro
were not at all in the same league as the performance version TPI Camaro, or 5.0 Mustang, these 170hp TBI models were
GM's economy de-tuned versions and were around 50-60 less horsepower versus the
performance optioned TPI models. These non-performing models gave the 3rd
Gen F-bodies a bad rep on the street... many think that these were the
example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM offered many
models, with many engines, camshafts and rear-gear ratios...

1993, GM unleashes LT1 Hell on Ford's Mustang Cobra
http://www.StreetShowDriftDrags.com There was a huge buzz back in 1993 with
the new 5.7 liter 6-speed LT1 Camaro Z28 hitting the streets...
not only were they smoking 5.0 Mustangs on the street, they were
dominating the tracks as well. The LT1 powered F-Body took America by storm
upon arrival, the Fox-Body platformed 5.0 Mustang as well as Ford's top dog '93
offerings, the beloved SVT Cobra, could not reel in the Camaro Z28. 1994 and 1995 were
disappointing for the Mustang GT as well as SVT Cobra. Not
until the following year, 1996, would Ford finally produce a Mustang to handle the LT1 Camaro Z28. The new 305hp SVT
Cobra... but GM had another ace in the sleeve with the newly optioned SS
models from SLP, also producing factory 305hp, and again keeping the "best
performing '90s V8 Ponycar" title.
Mustang GT & Cobra - LT1 Camaro Z28 ('90s Ponycars)
Vlogging really isn't my thing, but I wanted to give a little buildup to
the Project Mustang... so
here is a brief ramble and rant about the Sn95 Mustang, and how I see it, and how it
compares to the F-body of the same generation, etc...
Basically what we'll be doing here is slowly transforming a bone stock 1994
Mustang 5.0 liter SN95,
into a legitimate and respectable street runner, that will be able to
compete with today's standard Late-Model Muscle and Ponycars. From power to
braking and handling... and sticking with an "old school" principle of
"Hot-Rodding and Junkyard treasure hunting"... this project will be using
Ford factory components, possibly using GT40 or another type budget head,
with a budget minded limit of $800... as well as using a Cobra/GT40 intake,
and other aftermarket bolt-on parts, and using as many "Factory Ford" parts
as possible... and "on the cheap" ...with the goal being a solid 300 rear
3,000lb. V8-ponycar that holds it's own on the street, on the dragstrip,
and on the road course as well.
