The stock Mach 1 position is where it's just in toward the engine from being flush. This is between 1/8" to 1/4" from being flush to the front. They sell one that installs flush to the wheel wells. I guess it depends what you like. Do you know which one is included in your kit?

The actual factory OEM chin spoiler is made out of a much higher quality material, and will fit the best.

Most kits or chin spoilers that are for sale for under $100 are the glossy plastic that can be mounted flush at the front of the bumper, but will not sit flush with the fender wells.

As said the true Mach 1 positioning is to have the chin spoiler sit back 1/8-1/4" under the bumper. I positioned mine ~1/4" back and it looks great. I originally tried to have it sit flush under the bumper and the ends were about 1/2" to an inch short to the fender wells.

I was going to get that one too but I figured after I lowered mine 2" in the front it'd catch hell, so the cheaper spoiler was the better option. I actually like the glossy look over the matte finish too...really adds to the black n blue scheme when she's all polished up with meguiars.

Agreed. Stick to the true mach 1 setup with it recessed about 1/4". I tried mine both ways as well and I personally think it looks goofy when it is flush with the front.

You drill your own holes. Measure twice, drill once! Take your time.

Yes you do have to drill holes but don't be intimidated by it. As said get your spoiler line up exactly where you want it. I used plenty of duct tape to hold it in place as well as an extra set of hands and then I drilled.

Me and my buddy did both our cars in about 45 min...longest part was getting it lined up the way we wanted on the bumper.

It probably came with plastic push-pin sorta things. You drill the holes and push the pins thingy's in through the spoiler into the hole.

The grille delete plastic panel uses the existing push pins that the stock corral uses. The floating pony should come with a couple screws...if not just pick some up at a hardware store..pretty basic like 1/4x20 or 3/16.

The chin spoilers used to come with nuts, bolts and washers. I believe they come with push pins or something similar now. I personally would buy some nuts and bolts for the chin spoiler...they'll hold up much better.

There'd be nothing worse than driving down the road and you suddenly feel a thump under the car and you find out it was your chin spoiler

I'd like to do put the mach 1 shaker hood system on my car, I'd rather use the mach 1 hood though over the kit you can get for it. Plus I wouldn't want to cut a big hole out of my stock hood lol.

Looks good! Especially with it being a white stang.

The shaker's cool but not $750 cool imo lol. Plus unless you do some custom fabbing to the shaker unit you'd have to use a stock 99-02/99-04 GT hood and cut the hole. The shaker on the v6 doesn't sit in the same location as on the Machs so the stock Mach 1 hood will not work without fabbing to get the intake to line up properly.

To do all that seems like an aweful lot of time/money for a weak ram intake...mainly all show.

Man chin spoilers and grille deletes look so good on white stangs.

Get some smoked headlights to complete that front end.

Unless your car is lowered 2 inches I don't think you'll need too. Even then I think that's enough space

I have the kit on my car. IMO i don't think it is that bad looking.Kit was fairly easy to install. And came with everything needed. I love the look of the shaker. Give my car a real muscle car look. The OEM Mach 1 hoods are hard to find. And expensive on top of that. Plus there are difference in where the intake /shaker sit on the Mach 1, and other mustangs, if i am not mistaken.My kit was a lot cheaper than getting the OEM parts. And, it is mostly cosmetic. The chin spoiler came out great. Good job.

Yeah that does look pretty good, I'd love to find a Mach 1 in general but I think my V6 would look good with that too. Although I could use that money on something else too, so it's a win lose situation I guess.
