I'd go with the mach, better uhh tech¿ no development¿ yes that's the one, mach over 99/01 Cobras =[ sad I know but hey it is what it is,,,, plus the mach has better heads so no ticking, and better internals and slightly higher compression if I'm not mistaking

05-09 mustang gt are kinda the same boat as the 99-04 gts the power isn't there unless you go boost. The Mach 1 are great it's worth waiting for a good Mach or termi. You can boost all of them safely on stock motors.

The mach is a hell of a platform. And lots of room to grow. You can do a mean n/a build up to 380HP ish by doing the heads or a 6-10lb blower for 390-450 hp safely. Or go all out and build the lower end and go nuts! Decent stock 3.55 gearing and that shaker never gets old.

Yeah I'm a little suspect about the quarter time listed for the mach. That's pretty quick for stock. Intake tune 275 summer rubber I'm running 13.5 with a 2.1 60' and power shifts. But im over 5400' so i guess maybe 13 flat at sea level with a tail wind maybe. I don't see the stock all season 245 rubber doing better off the line.

It's true those numbers are good and right on the money.

There are two hidden variables here that are working together to achieve those numbers. Bear in mind these are numbers CD captured during the production year so there will be different test locations at different times of the year from year to year. In the past CD admits to changing out tires when necessary as an additional factor.

But the two variables working here are professional driver and rear factory gear ratio on the car that was tested, which is not listed.

There's bolt on New Edges Running 12.8 all over you tube.

One dude, he started out at 13.9 to start, then took like two years to do full bolt ons and ended up running 12.77 last fall.

I don't doubt it. A steep set of gears and drag radials with a bit more power will go a long ways.

Yeah right, over here 2V GTs are running 15s

Fully bolted GTs are running mid 13s

It depends on altitude and temp.

Keep in mind that those numbers are with stock gears. The Mach's have 3.55 stock. What are the 99 Cobra's? That's probably why it showed as .7 slower than a manual Mach.

The Mach 1 is what I would go with. The 05 GTs you can mod them and they get some good hp gains from a few mods. Also its a nice riding cruise car. Im more into just cruising than racing now I have a family so things change. Get the Mach its better to look at lol

My Cobra ran 12.90s 1.99 60ft 109mph. 4.10s 285-35-18 nittos. d-spec shocks and springs. The big thing is the IRS. With the stock tires/suspension and 3.27 gears it was horrible off the line. If you tried to launch it had horrible wheel hop and if you rolled it out it lugged 2.20 60ft. Brace the IRS (front and rear mounts) install 4.10 and big tires and bam. Plus I love the IRS on the street, Honestly I feel like my Cobra can out handle any Mustang.

I'd like to get a few 12 time slips also but at 5400 (actually the track might be higher than that...) I'm thinking it's gonna need a power adder first. Intake tune exhaust 275 rubber and suspension set up for auto x won't get me there in my mach. Meh id rather carve corners anyways.
