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!
