Believe it or not, I still have not driven a Mach1, though I am in negotiations. I've gone into this making sure not to lose my sense by driving it (falling back on past experience with a C5 and '03 Cobra). So what am I missing out on? I've driven a lightly modded automatic 2000GT for four years. I test-drove a 2001 Cobra after my mods and took it straight back to the delearship because it was doggy slow. This is the same motor, with a shaker scoop and 3.55 gears. Is that ALL it took to make the 32V quick?
