Wanted to say hey to everyone, recently picked up a 04 Mach 1 for my first Mustang about 2 weeks ago. Decided to come to the mustang world after my friend introducing me to his 93 stroked coupe and his 95 GT and seeing how easy they were to work on and how affordable the parts seem to be. That being said, I absolutely love my 4v 4.6 in my Mach 1 also a previous owner had Flowmasters put on it and new piping from the header back and it sounds amazing. I think my next upgrade is going to be a JLT fender mounted CAI and then I'll go from there.

I've actually done some reading on that and I'm curious how is highway driving with the 4.10 or 4.30? I honestly love how you can be cruising at less than 2000 rpm at say 60 mph. I come from owning a whole slew of 4 cyl where the gearing is so high that at 60 mph you're running at 2500rpm just to maintain 60. I hated that about the 4 bangers...

Torched, you have any pics of yours on the Eibach Sporlines? I'm interested in lowering it too but don't know how it's going to look, also how is your ride after the springs?

That's exactly about where I sit at when I'm on the highway at cruising speed. On 5th gear I sit at about 2k. What's even great is I don't have to downshift to get my kicks lol if I give more gas my speedometer keeps going up at a steady rate. Launches are ****ing amazing. I scratch all the way up to third gear, and that's not even on full throttle.

I'm actually on coil-overs now but here are some pictures for you, and the ride was fine with the sportlines!

Love the way that looks especially with the lipped mach 1 wheel in the back... Which by the way where do you get those... I have seen these random pics with the wide mach 1 wheel but cannot for the life of me find a place online to order them from, especially in the aluminum like that.

My wheels are from AFS, they are kind of hard to come by. You might find some random people on here selling theirs. And thank you very much!!

Mine was 1.7' lower in the front and 1.5' in the back with the sportlines. Since I've gone to coilovers, I'm 2' lower in the front and 1.8' in the back.
