    Guess I wish I was young again, but then again I'm thankful for all the time I've been given so far to learn the lessons I have. I was once one of those "kids" who thought because my car was loud, it went fast.

    Hey I see you have a Stang with similar rwhp as mine (539rwhp, 517rwtq) what kind of times you running with the 03?
    It's a street car mainly. I haven't had the car to the track since the build was done last year.

    I have to agree this kid is a retard if he (actually blew his engine up the second week) so you should walk him if you drive right....but..... Stock Mach's are matched very close to stock F-Bodies and its a drivers race between them 99.9% of the time

    "Blew it up" to a kid in school - especially after the story gets around - could mean anything from a thrown rod to a dead battery.

    Would be a good race. All things being equal (they rarely are), the LS1 would have a bit of an advantage.

    Take him down! Like everyone's already stated, it sounds like he isn't very experienced. If you know your car and how to drive it, I think you'll take him. If you aren't that experienced, get some practice in first - launching and shifting. Then shut his 'rustang down!
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    With equal drivers that is a close race but the Z should have the edge especially top end. My friends cobra with the same engine as the Mach turned a BEST of 13.89 @103 with shorty headers (which are wothless). The Z should trap at least 106.

    As an FYI....previous N/A Cobras had a similar engine to the Mach 1, but with different heads, cams, and other more minor things.

    machs also had lower gears which helped them out too

    Like Blkcloud said above, the engines are similar, but the Mach 1 engine is not the same as the previous generation N/A Cobra. The compression on the Mach 1 is higher, the heads and cams are exactly the same as the 03/04 Cobra, the intake and exhaust have been modified for better performance. And since you quoted a timeslip, when my Mach 1 was dealership stock, it turned a 13.19 @105, just for the record.

    Still trapping slower than an average M6 LS1, butt not by much. Nice ET for street rubber with that mph.

    that's .02 faster and same mph as my a4 ls1 with a lid. tuned it ran 13.00@106 or 107. balls out fast Mach 1!

    my only mach 1 experience was a guy with gears and full exhaust, manual tranny, that i beat pretty bad once and lost to by a hair once.
