your so wrong try the USAF buddy and I am xtraining into TACP you should look it up on wiki and my reenlisstment bonus will be around 70K! Staight out of Highschool my ass!! What do you do for a living??
If your gonna start modding it all changes. What are you looking to get out of the car? The Termi has the most potential, engine wise but will you ever reach it or ever be able to use all the power? The arent cheap and neither are mods. Mach1's cobra and 2v's will all be pretty equal with a blower, 2v prolly has the lowest limit. 3vs have a fairly stout stock block, but the cars and parts are pricey.
ahh, well your pro's and cons are......termi cobras are 4-valve supercharged, machs are 4-valve NON supercharged, bullitts are 2-valve NON supercharged. if you can afford it defiently go termi, they have forged internals FROM the factory, so you can build pretty much as much horsepower as you want, well not TOOO much.
and im a high end mechanic for toyota, bringing about 85-90k a year, on commission
Every car has it's pros and cons. The Termi (in my opinion) is just head and shoulders above any Mustang before it as far as quality, handeling, and performance/performance potential.
If I HAD to get into another Mustang, but didn't have a lot to spend right now than I would get a Mach1. If you are patient, do some looking, and aren't afraid to travel out of state, than you can find some great deals on a Mach1.
After that I would look for a SN95 Cobra that has been well taken care of and has some decent mods. It's not hard to find a Cobra with aftermarket internals and a Vortech (or something along those lines). Those cars just tend to have a few more miles and small wear and tear on them.
