    Yeah, my friend is thinking about picking up a red Mach1 5speed. It should be a *****en car. I plan on doing my VF39 Swap this weekend, so I wonder if I could pull him.

    VF39 and supporting mods should run pretty even with a Mach1 and even pull it a little. However, just $500 worth of mods on his end will have him walking away from you hard. My friends Mach1 has like $1,000 in basic mods and runs low 12's @ 110.

    Yeah, low 12's might be a stretch @ $1,000 worth of mods, definitely mid 12's. But the Mach 1's are bad ass, I've been looking for a mint one for the past couple years. Granted, I haven't been looking hard...it's either a weekend beast I can mod up or a new boat.

    My dad had a Mach 1 for a year. He took it to the track once and hit a 13.1 stock. MT can't drive worth a ****.

    +1...

    I would have bought a gorgeous V8 beast if the weather wasn't so crappy 8 out of 12 months a year here...

    Mach 1, Camaro SS, WS6 Ram Air, BMW M3, C5 Vette, etc etc etc...


    But I'm happy as all living hell with my STI

    Not sure exactly. He didn't say anything about slicks, but maybe he thought it was assumed.

    I do know however that he went 12.7 on bolt on's and stock tires. I would imagine with a couple more mods and a good set of street tires low 12's could be accomplished. (12.3 to be more specific).
