New to group - quick question

Hello:
I have lurked for a while. I have finally realized my dream of driving
a Mustang! I bought a 1999 GT convertible 5 spd. Bone stock and
beautiful. I absolutely LOVE this car.

I'll post some pics and details soon, but first a quick question.

I am looking for some stats on engine performance, specifically
horsepower and torque output at a given RPM. I have done a few
searches, but can't seem to find what I am looking for.

The format I am looking for is like this (I guessed at the numbers):

RPM Torque (Lb-Ft) Power (HP)
0 0 0
500 0 0
1000 0 0
1500 0 0
2000 282 3
2500 287 230
3000 292 235
3500 297 240
4000 302 245
4500 297 250
5000 292 255
5500 287 260
6000 282 255
6500 277 250
7000 0 0


Thanks in advance!

IMO, one of the best places to get real world hp/tq numbers is from
browsing the main Mustang web sites like The Corral, StangNet etc.
After seeing all the dyno runs they have posted you will get a good idea
for hp/tq numbers for various cars and mods.

With cars, only torque is measured. Horsepower is calculated as:

HP = TQ * (RPM/5252)

Torque, not horsepower, determines acceleration. I think of this as:
"Torque is for fun. Horsepower is for advertising."

Great slogan! Call up Ford's advertising group and see if they're
interested. ;)

Guys:
Thanks very much for your replies.
I'll check the forums as you recommend as well as remembering this formula.

Great slogan. I have seen this written:

torque gets you there, horsepower keeps you there
(where 'there' refers to high speeds I guess)
This has always helped me remember the difference, in simple terms

Thanks!
