    I need some help on what you guys think would be a fun car. I'm going to mod the car quiet a bit over this winter. The 4v is quick but it still leaves much to be desired. As for the exterior I'm not going to change any mach 1 body pieces with the exception of the spoiler delete. I'd like recommendations on cams, blowers and turbos and supporting mods injectors, fuel pumps etc... Keep in mind I want the car very streetable and I'm on all stock internals. Also it's going to get an altitude adjustment probably H&R's and billsteins but coilovers aren't out of the question. TIA

    For a street car my vote is blower. Can make more than enough power and extremely reliable.

    I'd say go with forced induction and forget the cams because of cost. On a 4v you really can't go wrong with a KB/Vortech/Procharger and I assume turbos would be sick on there as well.

    Just did a p1sc on a white Mach and it's working awesome the kit is very well put together . Car made 436rwhp so great numbers for sure .ive got 2 friends with kb Mach 1's it's a good setup because they are intercooled , I still always vote for a centri blower over twin screw .

    I'd wanna gather the parts and swap on an 03-04 cobra setup and a blower so you have the intercooler and stuff. The turbo is a close second, and what I voted for... I'd stay away from engine mods myself.... Especially if it's a street car. Boosted 4v with stock internals including cams would be more than enough.

    I say get cams, but it's just because I love how they sound on machs.
