Talking NEW STANG!!!!!

Well guys I didn't go to the dark side (dodge) after hearing all the issues with dodge I decided to find something different, and I did! 2003 Mach 1 Azure Blue 5-speed that was supercharged by the last owner and the dealership ended up rebuilding the engine. 65,000 miles, they were asking 14,887 and I paid 12,800. Now here's the funny story, they have had the car for a while and when I test drove it, it was a dog. The accel pedal was floppy and low so I had my dad look at the TB when I pushed the throttle to the floor it was only giving about 60% throttle lol. Any one know how to adjust the cable, I think its messed up on the pedal's end not the TB.







I'm in the 4v club now

My plans are to do nothing to it, keep it clean and original.

Congrats the car is beautiful! Well i would start with the new pedal for sure lol. Theres so many potential things about the throttle issue, i would start easy and painless and clean the MAF sensor and check the alternator with a volt meter. It could also be a bad fuel filter...as far as adjusting the cable the only thing i know of is the screw on the throttle body that controls the idle speed

Were the RPMs really high despite the car bogging?

It's not bogging, there is lots of slack in the throttle cable.

Go to mustangworld.com they have an easy mod that takes up the slack in the throttle cable.

Assuming you meant good price (not sure what goo costs), he had the price in the post - 12,800

HTH

For the area I'm in, I feel I did good at 12,800. The only other mach 1 in the area was a white 04 with 95k miles and it had some notable flaws plus they were asking 14,995 for it

I will later, I'm at work right now. The plastic cover at the front of the bay has a hole in it but at least that's an easy fix. This engine makes my grandpa's Pontiac GTO 455 look small lol massive heads!

http://www.mustangworld.com/ourpics/fcar/99pedals.htmYea all the new edge ones have a sloppy pedal, I remember on my last mustang it would get stuck on the floor lol. The fix is easy and cheap. Here's a link for you to look at just requires a couple bucks and 15 minutes

I think it would look cool to sand the rusty bolts on the valve covers and paint them azure blue.

Lol thanks man! I still have the GT but will need to sell it sometime. I'm going to have to take a loss on it since I had around 4 grand in mods and 9 in the car. Oh well I have learned my lesson and will keep this mach all stock. I fixed the throttle today and damn does it pull hard! I need to keep off it for a while since the rebuilt engine only has around 300 miles on it. Sunday when I'm off work I will clean her up good, anyone know of a good product to return black faded plastic to a dark black? My shaker is pretty faded

It's a bad picture but I've got this, I haven't gotten to use it much though.

Turtle Wax Trim Restorer is 10x better than Back to Black. It shines longer and after a few days the Back to Black leaves a hazy white film

All the rest are good for like two weeks.

Wipe New lasts.

Just took her out to stretch the legs and wow does this thing move! I have to be nice on her since the engine is not broke in yet so I didn't speed shift or take her above 80% throttle today.

This is going to 60, I was not giving it all it has and I'm trying to be nice to it. This is the highest I have had the rpms and I'm pry not going to be up that high in a while.
