2003 mach 1 question

:?:

Hey everyone,
I am somewhat new to mustangs, but I love them to death and I just bought a used 2003 mach and its all stock. Would someone who owns a mach be so kind as to letting me know if doing any tunes or mods would be worthwhile? If you recommend keeping it stock, great! But I was just making sure if there was anything that might be worth looking into to make my pony last as long as possible. Thank you so much for all input and suggestions!

There are lots of things that can be worthwhile to do with, and to your Mach 1. It all kind of depends what your overall plans are for the car. Is it going to be a daily driver, fair weather street cruiser, track car, drag racer, etc.? There are bolt-on mods and tunes that can up the horsepower and torque into the low 300 range, without adversely affecting driveability and state emissions laws. Nothing wrong with leaving it stock, if that's what you would prefer. Then there are total mod junkies (myself included!), who like to drive a badass street car in nice weather and go to the occassional Mustang show to show it off! There's a lot of options available to you.

You also might want to drop by the Mach 1 Registry and Owners Club Forum, where you can get about ten years worth of information and ideas about what to do with your car.

You cant leave a mustang stock, atleast i cant! so many things to do, as a daily or streat car this is what i would do first....BBK headers, BBK cold air, O/R H pipe, flowmaster or your favorite muffler cat back, H&R lowering springs. Good start

He said it pretty well. I would definitely look into some gears a tuner and some exhaust (mufflers and mid pipe first not headers) as my first mods to a mach 1
