Ive owned one mustang before and it was a 94 gt convertible 5-speed. Slow at first, but I didnt mind modifying it to make it faster.
Some of us enjoy modifying cars...which means, we spend our money on mods and research what mods are best for our cash.
28k? Alright, well maybe he wanted something newer? He also liked modifying as well.
Not everything is as it seems and respect can be seen on all sides.

This forum is for LS1 Camaro owners who love their cars, and all things LS1. But I think it is cool to have cool people who have other cars and like LS1's too. One thing I can't stand are trolls, and there are a few of those, but they get weeded out quickly.
We have Evo, Lightning, Mustang, SRT-4,8 owners on here who give us insights on cars some LS1 people have never driven or know nothing about.
I would have underestimated some of these cars if it weren't for these people. Kinda like the enemy telling you their secrets thing.
Plus, a performance junky is a performance junky. All who post here LOVE horsepower and hot-rodding, most PREFER LS1 Horsepower, but just b/c we prefer LS1 power, doesn't mean we wouldn't like to take an SRT-8 Charger out with full-exhaust and do some doughnuts and smoke the tires down to wires. Or maybe take a 370 whp Evo out and do four wheel burnout launches while hearing the turbo scream.
I am glad you told me about the GT's you owned, I heard they were slow, but damn, not spinning on a wet road is highly pathetic. Hell, if I tried hard enough I could take a bicycle and do that.

Angus66 what mods do you have? I have a lot of respect for Machs and yours sounds badass.

if they want to race just do it, or not who cares! you know you are faster, that is why i dont race older stangs that are not worth the chance on the street.
angus car is killer, he is a mod. over at the reg. and dont let him bs, from what i have seen in timeslips he can drive, very fast!!!!

Why did Ford only advertise (I think it was) 305hp for the Mach's since it was basically the same motor used in the 01 Cobra except for quite a few modifications that surely made it actually stronger than the 32 valver that was in the 01 Cobra? Also what actually were the changes between the two motors, seems like it was in the heads and intake or something (of course other than the obvious, functional shaker hood which, by the way, was a perfect thing for that car) was it insurance purposes or maby fear of another disater similar to the recall on the 99 Cobras (I bet those guys were pissed)?

Dont tell all of the LS1 Guys this but I would probably trade my Z28 for a 03-04 Cobra tomorow if I could afford it, one of those things are a pulley and exhaust away from 11 seconds (or something ridiculous like that). Seems like I remember reading in a MM&FF magazine years back where they took one and spent $600 to $700 and got it into the high 10's (unless I am remembering wrong) But hey there is a million things I can do to the Z28 to get it to go down a track (but I am sure I will never see low 11's and definately not 10's I dont have that kind of cash flow.
