    Mach 1 has a stronger low-end, so 0-60 and 1/4 is going to be a little better but the 01 Cobra has a little stronger top-end

    Not knocking on the Mach1, it's an awesome car, BUT:

    If the Mach misses a shift, his ass is busted....
    If the Mach short-shifts, his ass is busted...
    If the Mach gets a poor dig, his ass is busted...
    If the race is longer than 1/4 mile, his ass is busted...
    etc., etc.....

    A stock 99 Cobra runs 13.7-13.9 and a stock Mach1 runs 13.4-13.6 at best, so yeah....call me crazy but I'd say that's "barely".

    Gotta love people that don't know there info. 5spd Mach 1's run mid 13's at worst with a decent driver. Wish I could find that magazine that compaired the 01 Slowbra, Mach 1, and Bullit.....it was a must read for all you non believers.

    So with a good driver a Mach1 is a 13.0-13.3 sec car..is that what you are saying?
    Have you ever had your Mach on a 1/4 mile while it was stock?

    I'd say barely as well. They are the same car except the Mach 1 has a new and improved head design, different cams. I beat a stck one with my mods from a stop, a roll and top end then a few weeks later the same one put on a offroad x-pipe, cat back, and CAI and beat me by a car from a stop, pretty even from a roll got me by half a car and I still beat him on the top end, passed him by the end of third and shifted to fourth and he couldn't catch up.

    I'd say the Mach, hands down. Equal drivers the Mach will pull. Mach has solid axle. Compression is 10.0 to 1 on the Mach vs. 9.5 to 1 on the Cobra. The Mach also has different cams. I've personally seen a couple of Mach 1's dyno just over 300hp with a catback. Ford really underrated the Mach with the #'s they put out.

    Glad there are some people that look at facts to make up there minds. I realize the 03 Cobras are alot faster then my Mach 1.....why can't some ppl realize that a Mach 1 is faster than there cars?? To much pride I guess....

    Relax man..what do you have, some sorta' funky Freudian Cobra-Mach complex or something?
    Everyone agrees that the Mach is faster with equal drivers, but not by much , .5 seconds AT BEST! (13.3 vs 13.7)...that's all, sheeez!

    .4 seconds going over 100mph is quite a distance between cars.

    There both nice cars and are also very different. I'm not arguing either way. Stock to stock the Mach 1 is quicker and with the better flowing heads and cams plus the 3.55 gears it should be.

    You have to take your car to the track not read magazine times..... I have a strong running stock 03 cobra (drop in K&N only) The best I could get my first time out was 13.3 @ 107.5 Can I do better? Of course, the bottom line is you have to be an expert racer to match those magazine times :rolleyes:
