    Adam, how does the vert mach 460 system sound compared to coupe's? I LOVE the way my coupe's Mach system sounds, but my new vert doesn't have it, only base Mustang sound system. Basically wondering if it's worth it to find a set of Mach enclosures for a vert.

    How about subs in the trunk, can you hear them enough to make them worth while?

    My mach sound never worked. My wiring was so hacked up when i got the car. The old lady that owned it before me had someone put in a head unit and alarm. well they didnt take in to account the mach used different resistance speakers so all it did was crackle. Everything was so hacked up i just taped all the connections and ran new speaker wire to the doors and the rears. I had 3 10's in the back and i could hear them fine. Im gonna slap one 10'' in a custom fiberglass box in the next few weeks

    I will probably just install my Mach tweeters in the doors and opt for a sub in the trunk. Will probably sound much better than the Mach system anyway. What I have now sounds like ass compared to the Mach system! lol

    It took me a few days but finally got through this thread. You guys tackled just about every job. Hats off to you there was some things I wouldn't have touched. That dash project from the pictures looked like so a pain. Looks great, good job.

    Will this thread continue or is everything complete? We removed the stock camshaft on the 92GT today and installed a split duration TFS Stage 1 cam which was brutal in the 95 degree heat. Looks like you guys disassembled the entire car.

    Got a few more issues with the tune worked out. Adder2k gave me a hand and pulled some timing in the tune and the bucking issues stopped... Now i can cruise out of the drone zone.


    Thinking about going turbo this winter....

    when you're not too busy having friendly conversations with your dad on facebook, pull that seat out and bring it over so we can tear it down and fix it.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread. Just read through and wanted to know if anyone knows whatever happened to this car. Seemed like a cool project.

    haven't talked to Adam since last year at the American Muscle car show. at the time, it was more or less running good. they put it up on the dyno that day but the numbers were a little too low to be expected. he was going to go back over it to see if anything was wrong. I don't think he's posted since.
