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.
