    Also, Its quite possible that FORD may have underated the hp on this model.

    hmmmm ... Does this mean that there is the possibility that there may be a "unofficial" after market chip that will increase the HP ?

    The mach's have ram air right? Could be why they are trapping higher :shrug:

    Nah the shaker is for looks, it does make a dark spot on the filter so something is comming in but since the airbox has 2 holes, no ram air effect. The most likely reason for the higher trap speed is the area under the curve where the 4 valve is more powerfull after the 3 valve starts falling off. In my opinion its all an area under the curve thing. Another thing to wonder about is the three piece drive shaft. I am sure some power is being wasted through the rubber couplings that could help spin the rear.

    :stupid: I'm with you on this one...the reason for the 05 gt rolling with the mach 1 is going to be becuase of the vvt the 05 puts down much better numbers as far as low end horsepower and torque are concerned..this is the very reason why ford is using this valvetrain...the mustang was built for low end torque and the new valvetrain provides it..technology improved and there is no reason why we shouldn't accept it..the new mustang is a better drag racer than our older counterparts...way to go ford :flag:

    Yeah, I am also curious about this. Did it say what he did? Did he just adjust the timing and take off the airbox? Please post a link! :nice:

    I like the fact that Ford finally is producing a Mustang GT that is truly fast. I'm not a player hater & I'm also not sweating because I'm the type of person that will run anything when I'm in the mood. I've lost & I've won some. No biggie. That's why I have a Mustang. I'm not jealous over the '05. Progress is good. If I race one & I lose then I'll bolt-on some parts. :D Life's good for Mustang enthusiasts. Life's not good for '05 haters.

    I agree with downsouthman. Unfortunately I don't own either one of these beauties but it's still good to know that the new GT is headed in the right direction. I think it should be quicker than the Mach 1, even if not by much. Better than taking a step backwards.
