    qt of a mach 1?

    I've been looking around trying to find the qt of Mach 1 Mustang and what a 2002 wrx would need to take one down.
    96 Mustang: Shorty Headers, X-pipe, Electronic cut out, Air silencer Delete, K&N air filter, really sticky tires
    (14.32 @ 96.7mph)

    02 bugeye: exedy oem clutch, kybAGX struts, momo short-throw shifter, steel braided brake lines, stoptech rotors and stock rims (the 17inch wheel just weighed too much), 14.232 @ 94.75mph

    03-04 Mach 1's will be in the low 5 second range for zero to 60 times and mid to lower 13's for the 1/4 mile with an average driver. With some practice a friend of mine has been able to get his down to 13.1 seconds in the quarter on stock tires. Add some stickies and you know you'll be lower. The strength of the Mach's come with the power band of the 4 valve 281 cu in engine. A lot of people mistakenly think they are just left over 2001 Cobra engines but they are not. They are completely reworked. And once you reach 80+ mph the shaker really does take an effect.

    As for the 2002 bugeye you have a 1/4 (unmodded) of somewhere in the mid 14's. There is a difference of about 300 lbs between the two vehicles and you do have the benefit of the tenacious grip of the AWD but you're going to have to turn up the wick somewhere on your amount of boost and really work on the top end to keep up with the Stang. I'm by no means a Subie expert so I don't know the best way you can do this but I can tell you the about the Mach and that you will most likely have to do some serious mods to pace one.

    Hope this helps!

    To take them from a dig or roll you would need a tuned VF34. A well driven Stage2 should hold its own from a dig though.

    They run low-mid 13's @ 104-106mph typically. They respond very well to mods though, so some basic bolt on's put them into 12's. A mach1's performance, stock and mod for mod is much more similar to a sti than a wrx.

    Really low 13's if drives well. If is your average run-of-the-mill driver, 13.5-13.7.
