    lol at some of these post...

    I've owned both cars, and it's a driver's race. The Mach's seem a little quicker through the 1/8, and the LS1's pull a little better up top.

    I ran 12.90@107 with DR's,

    With only an x-pipe, CAI, and a programer, I ran a 12.61@108. this was with a 1.7x 60'. I ran several LS1's on the track and on the street, and I never lost to one that was stock or had similar bolt-on's. I would hit HRP twice a month, and I would post up here asking LS1 owners to meet me up there.

    When I had my LS1 cars, I used to run several Mach owners at HRP, and it was always a driver's race. I witnessed several bone stock Mach's hit 13.0's to 13.10'. They were all over my M6 C5.


    The reason you see some Mach's turn high 13's is because they are so hard to launch on the shitty Gatorback tires. With a good driver, low 13's are pretty common. Evan Smith got 13.1's out of two different Mach's.

    Auto Mach's are another story. I've never seen a Ford with a decent performance auto tranny. Those are usually high 13's.


    If you read up on the Mach site, you will find that most of them put 270-285 to the wheels in stock form.

    There are also a few that hit 12's bone stock.

    BTW, a lot of ya'lls post look like the same post you see on the Mach site, but the cars are reversed...


    I find both sides pretty funny..

    We are talking about machs right? They dyno anywhere from 265-275 rwhp.

    That was the 99' Cobra with it's bullshit 320 rating.

    The Mach's are underrated at 305. They are more along the lines of 330 at the crank.

    Doesn't a WS6 with 4.10s and DR run 12.7-12.8?
