Had the chance to run a Mach 1 today.. In Mexico. After seeing all the post on here I was scared he what exhaust so I figured he was at least 700 hp. We were pretty even till about 110 but I started to pull away. Edged him out a little :) does this sound about right? I just have a lid and a cat back pretty much:p

I hardly understand, but it sounds about right if he's stock. Usually its a drivers race stock for stock.

I understand all the Mach hate from a GM site, but my two buddies both had Machs with just o/r mid-pipe, catback, and a dyno tune. On radials both running mid 12s at 109-110mph.

Ya it was a joke lol. I see crap like that about them here all the time. On my iPhone so the post was auto corrected. Meant to say all he had was exhaust. At least that's what he told me. And we were pretty dead even but I started to pull away at about 110.

Good Run OP. Sounds like you ran into a stockish one like yourself seems right and is your car a auto or M6. Btw here is my experience with a Mach 1.

My car was longtubes tru-dual exhaust and 3.90 gear.
Mach 1 was catless y-pipe and some sort of aftermarket muffler, CAI, 3.73 gear with a I think a SCT "canned" tune. Both cars are manual trans.

I ran a 13.9 when completely stock and car in not so good condition mechanically, (General maintenace Etc).

I dont hate on stangs... Theres a few solid ones running around my area.

Its a drivers race...

It's all good. The best my other friend (he had a black Mach with same mods) got was a 12.56 at 111 that day.

Whatever.....he's dead hooking off a 2step to run 13.0 on a tire with atleast exhaust on it. For comparison I ran 13.0 @ 109 slipping the clutch to get moving with only 2mods. A airlid and a granitelli mass air. If we were to have run on the street he would've been looking at tailights......even though we ran the same et with a launch like he's getting.

Nice bigbird:) and an m6

Thanks Man I appreciate it. Just a little FYI the best time that SS in vid ran was a 8.37 @ 84.xx mph. Everyone says there is something wrong with my car because mph should be 87-89mph.

Looks like my SS pulls alot harder than the 84mph it trapped. :)

Yeah you're right. My friend did a 12.57 at 111 with o/r X pipe, borlas, and dyno tune. Oh and Nitto NT05s. It put down 310whp on a Mustang dyno.

Dude..save your breath on here...If you not riding in a GM or the new GM butt buddy known as an "SRT8", you could have a better technical conversation with a wall.

...Man, I remember the early days on LS1Tech when people actually made valid points. Now, the comments are mostly ignorant and full hate and jealousy of another vehilcle make.
The clowns ruined this site.

Agreed.

Comments like "my old foxbody went high 13s bone-stock" and "my stock Mach runs 12s easy" along with "My buddies Mach runs 10s with bolt-ons" have clearly contributed.

You show a pre 2011 gt and an older srt8. I agree with that comparison. The only srt8 I'd pick over the 5.0 gt is the new srt8 300.:eek2:

Mach 1s in ohio must have all been detuned or something because everyone i have ran into wasnt much, the 3 i ran had mods and i doubt they were in the 12s, the only fast mach1 i ran into had a procharger with a list of other mods but other than that one i have never seen much out of them,im sure there out there but reading this stuff on tech is just past funny and plain just retarded now, my buddy is looking for a mach to buy (i think he has spent to much time on tech, and he is up for a big disssssapointment lol,but i hope they are as good as i hear but havent seen much at the tracks n street yet

How about an intellingent response based on the car itself and not how much personal hate someone has for it because of the make.

Yea, you're right, might be to much to ask.

Please don't...I'm just talking performance and look wise the new 5.0 in stock form is more fierce. (<--in my opinion)If I had to make a choice in buying either one I'd go with the 5.0. My mother-in-law has a silver 2012 charger srt8 with the black and red leather interior. If I had to go on a long trip I'd take the charger but as to lay down the smack down the 5.0 would be my tool of choice.
