    So I decided to keep it.. Bought the car last May (2015) with around 45k on it. Just hit 46k. The car was 100% stock minus tint. Mods are as follows.
    New 15% Tint all around
    Black Vinyl over the rear dot matrix
    3rd brake light tint
    Smoked Headlights
    Short Throw Antenna (ha ha ha)
    Borla Stinger S-Type Catback
    Bassani Stainless Catted X (cat delete pipes on for now)
    JLT Ram Air Intake
    Painted the calipers gloss black

    That's it as of now. I just ordered a few things, Motorcraft Plugs (still on the stockers), Motorcraft Oil filter & Fuel filter. Gonna pick up motor oil locally. Next on the list is pads and rotors, MGW short throw, lower it, dyno tune..This won't be a balls deep build like the 95. Just a toy to have fun with.

    Ehhhh I don't believe in doing that to a Mach. Regular GT sure, just not my cup of tea.

    Nice, glad your deciding to keep her, you will enjoy em with bolt ons. Bolt ons and tuned pi 4v can see approx 330w/390 horse.

    You should put your saleens on the mach and see how it sits ! :)

    I 2nd [MENTION=18830]Frank.JD.Perez[/MENTION] on the bumpers, IMHO the cobra bumper gives it a more aggressive look, also maybe a mach 1 windshield banner?? was this the car you are sharing with your brother or something?

    New Motorcraft plugs donezo. Car drives so much smoother, throttle response is a lot better as well. Idk why people ***** about doing plugs on the 2V and 4V. Easy ****ing peazy. I will only use Motorcraft tune up parts, oil and fuel filters etc.. none of that NGK, K&N bullshit. Oil change most likely over the weekend.

    Sweet. The Machs can hold their own. Will be a sweet car.
    I agree with other comments. front cover and wheels would finish the look.

    WHAATTT? No one would bite for $18.5k?? Who would have guessed?!

    BTW once your full bolt ons and tuned it will break necks... It would be hard for me to believe that a bolt on, heads and cammed 5.0 could touch it. Borla stingers+ LT's+o/r x will wake the dead.

    Hahahahaha dude honestly, I priced it stupid high so it wouldn't sell. I'm glad it didn't. I had someone offer 16k. Turned it down. Well as of rn, my 5.0 would beat it hands down. It would probably come down to a drivers race tbh. I want a dyno tune for the mach, would be wicked. Ughhh longtubes are the devil. I despise them

    If you thought they were hard to install on the 5.0, then you have another thing coming when it comes to DOHC 4.6's....
