The 1996 Ford Mustang began a new era for 'Stang engines. Fored retired the nearly 40-year-old small-block V-8 and replaced it with their new "modular" V-8, which had been introduced five years earlier with the Lincoln Town Car.
The 4.6L V-8 engine offered in the 1996 SN95 Mustang came in two versions. One was meant for the GT, and it used a single cam iron block with two valves per cylinder. The engine revved higher and faster than the old pushrod V-8, and was smoother and quieter. It also was designed to meet future emissions standards, whereas the old V-8 wouldn't. The Cobra version of the engine had twin cams, four valves for each cylinder, and a cast-aluminum block. It produced 305 horsepower, and 300 lb-ft of torque.
