Mach 1=fast!!

Discussion in '2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1' started by American HP, Jan 16, 2003.

  1. The new mach 1 has now run a 13.1 quarter mile, stock, thats faster than a camaro ss. For all the people who said it was "slow" and not impressive, screw you!

    Hey man nobody said this was slow.. yet at least. You seem like a decent guy from your other posts so don't screw up with something like this.. I have some questions you or someone might be able to answer for me.. Is this gonna replace the GT.. To me it doesn't seem like the brightest idea to have 4 production mustangs.. IMO.. well at least with the new GT around 280 some HP and this at 300.. seems too similar.. performance wise.. I think they should scrap the GT and make this yearly.. I like the looks of this but clarify me if I'm wrong.. why does it say "keeping with performance Mustang heritage, the scoop is not only for appearance, but functional."??? This is the only recent Mustang I've seen with FACTORY functional scoops.. right?

    This is not going to replace the GT, the new line up will be the same, v-6, GT, special edition (boss 302 next), and cobra. Shelby might also make a come back in the mustang scene though (which might add another production stang).
    It makes perfect sense to have all those production mustangs, people have more choices, which is good. Maybe somebody wants a mustang but only has $17,000 to spend, they buy the v-6. Somebody might want a fast rwd v-8 but doesn't want spend lots of money, so they buy a GT, you get the point. Everybody can get a mustang to their own liking. It's not unlike the early mustangs that included the boss, mach 1, shelby, v-6, gt, etc...
    The scoop is for performance, just like the older mustangs, thats why the say "keeping with perfromance mustang heritage".

    some one please tell me why ford has to put superchargers on everything they cant get power out of natuarly asipered engens at all thats just part of my list of reasons ford sucks
     
  6. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    Ryan Ryan Ryan... You're an absolute moron. I wish all the little 9 year olds that just figured out to work the internet could be blocked from this site.. Where did you hear that this car is running superchargers?? You have absolutely no respect for a nice car, which doesn't suprise me because you're probably not old enough to drive anyway. Why don't you go pop Fast and the Furious back in the vcr and pretend a civic can keep up with this car..
    -D
     
  7. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    Hey moron, whats going on? This car if you don't know (which you don't I guess) does not have a super charger and it's running a 13.1 in the quarter mile, but I guess ford still sucks huh jackass?
    Also, whats wrong with adding a super charger, most people that want big increases in HP add one anyways, why not buy the car (or truck) with one on from factory? The internals are already their (fordged internals) and you get a warrenty with it? So again whats wrong with that idiot, thats right nothing.
     
  8. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    did you ever think about the fact that almost every big car company out there uses a super or turbo charger. Pontiac uses a supercharger in the GPX, Dodge uses a turbocharger in Neon SRT-4 (which by the way kicks butt with a 0-60 of 5.4), and ya know what, Porsche use turbos in the 911 Turbo and GT2.

    oh yeah and the proper spelling is engine not engen
     
  9. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    i was looking at GM papers to see which models have superchargers on them. Bonneville SSEi and Grand Prix GTP (not GPX sorry) both have avalible superchargers putting hp to 240
     
  10. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    i for one recently was delivered my mach 1 this car is amazingly fast and handles like its on rails plus ford has underrated the car were they say it makes 305 hp and 320 foot pounds of tourqe it has been dynoed to make 335 horspower at the flywheel and 365 pound feet of tourqe i think thats pretty amazing out of a stock 4.6 liter so dont reck on a car until u have had the expieriance with it
     
  11. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    fyi, the mach 1 is going to be limited production. I talked with my dads friend that owns a Ford dealership and he said that this will probally be the only year that they offer the mach1. Initial reports are they that they are making 6500 - 8000 mach1's and that is it.

    PS I'm going to have mine by the end of the month. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Btw, They arent going to be producting the boss next. If you look at www.svt.ford.com website and go to concept, it will say that they have no plans to produce the 302.

    "The scoop is for performance, just like the older mustangs, thats why the say "keeping with perfromance mustang heritage"."

    Not on the GT.
     
  14. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    I wasn't talking about the GT, I was talking about the mach 1. And the GT's scoops are keeping with the mustangs heritage, the older GT's had them also.
     
  15. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    If all that were indeed true, it wouldn't be getting outrun on the track by the S2000 (lol) and the 350Z.....
     
  16. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    So then, do you have respect for the JAPANESE MADE Subaru Impreza WRX STI which is faster than this with "only" 265 hp, and 253lbft torque? I mean it has less power, but it's faster.

    And this is hardly faster than many "Jap" cars around the track.
     
  17. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    So then why did people even start bashing imports for being ryce? Seeing as the Mustang GT's have always had fake hoodscoops.
     
  18. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    R!ce isn't import cars, it's any car that has things like an outragous body kit, huge wing, fart cannon exhaust, etc...with no performance mods. That means any car can really be r!ce. Most r!ce started out with imports though, and that's why some kids think that imports, no matter what,are r!ce.
    Two small scoops on a car does not make it r!ce. They do not hinder performance, and they keep the original look of the earlier mustangs alive.
     
  19. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    That's exactly what I'm saying, and those are the people who I'm speaking out against.

    And the Hood scoop and side scoops produce no less drag than some of the Body kits some rycers use.
     
  20. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    Good, then I have nothing against you, your above post when you said "Also it can smoke any Jap car quarter mile or track.
    " just led me to believe otherwise.
     
  21. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    You haven't seen some of the body kits that kids are putting on their cars then...<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  22. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    You're right, I haven't. But let me rephrase that.


    And the Hood scoop and side scoops produce no less drag than SOME of the Body kits SOME "rycers" use.

    There, does that work? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  23. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    Thats better.
     
  24. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    But that's what I said before, just with less emphasis on "some".

    Oh well, I guess it's a bit more clear what I meant, now <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  25. Re: Mach 1=fast!!

    You= Moron. This is awkward. To point out something that Enzoguy said, The Camaro[according to you] Ran 12.8. But the mach one running 13.1 is faster than it? How is this so? Now, for no reason I"M POSTING a PICTURE OF an F1.
