    02 trans am vs 04 mach1

    A few weeks back my coworker brought his car to work, he drives a red 04 mustang mach1 with LT headers, x pipe, flowmaster 44 mufflers, k&n intake, and Diablo tuned....at work i was asking about his car, and he was bragging to me on how he never lost a race, he claims he beaten camaro ss, trans am, and corvettes, so we decided to race after work. At the time all i had for my car was an air lid and catback so i thought i was gonna lose.
    we find a good spot and and decided to run it...
    First race, he spun out and i beat him by 8 cars or so.
    2nd race, he spun out and i beat him by 8 cars or so again...
    3rd race, he finally catches grip and 1st gear i pull ahead by 1 car and a half, 2nd gear we stay the same distance away until about 120mph...
    finally 4 race i spun out in 1st gear, he pulls about a car ahead, i had to pedal my gas pedal until i caught grip, then i floored it. pulled right next to him, we are neck to neck, everytime he shifts, i pull ahead, everytime i shift he pulls ahead...all the way to about 125mph, i had him by a bumper before we slammed on the brakes, haha, so his car wasnt all the hype he made it seem

    sounds like a typical mustang owner, same with my friend that has a 02 gt with a few bolt ons and 4.10s thinks hes gonna stomp me

    Wow. Had no idea the 04 Mach 1 was fast enough to run neck and neck with an LS1. Never payed any attention to stangs from that gen unless they had "Cobra" on the bumper.

    Nice kill though, sounds like you both (though him to a greater extent for spinning twice in a row) need a little bit of a driver mod (or tires ). Good kill though.

    well if you want to go by quickest recorded times--- ls1 f-bods are 12 sec cars!

    i'm surprised the mach kept up after 100mph--- that's where most stangs start to shit the bed.

    Get some longtubes on your car and he definatley wont keep up, The NA 4 valves dont respond as well to bolt-ons like the LS1s do.

    Im pretty sure the mach1 has to. Not 100% on that. They are low 13 second cars. It has nothing to do with the quickest records. The biggest problem with the mach1's is that most people see the slow ass autos.

    they have to be driven perfectly in perfect conditions to make low 13 passes. but it is possible i guess.

    Bullshit! The same could, and should be said about stock LS1's running 12's, because I never came across one that could.

    Hell, I ran a 13.1 @105 bone stock, on street tires, with a full tank of gas, and I wasn't even trying hard.

    I ran a stock one at the track 3 times. They are definitely low 13 cars stock.

    109mph? I know low 13s are typical of the 01+ ls1's but at 109 stock? That would be like 340rwhp(probably more) to move that heavy Vert down the track.
