i already have a jlt cai but thats it for right now. Id like to get long tube headers with a non catted x pipe into some borla stingers. but aside from that what are some good mods for the motor. by next year i want to put a super charger on it, so any recomondations on internals would be be great. my goal is to eventually get around 450hp to the wheels.

Just keep saving for for the supercharger, with a safe tune and the right amount of boost, you will see close to 450rwhp:bigthumbsup

if you want to get the most out of you supercharger i would recommend some lower compression/ forged pistons and rods
With these your engine will be able to handle more boost and you will make more power
Definently get exhaust also

Yes, definitley do your exhaust before you install a supercharger.
What transmission do you have in your Mach 1 automatic or
manual? I recommend going with Manley rods and pistons because
for the money they hold alot of power and they have a great design
and will hold up to a supercharger.Plan on running 8.5:1-9.0:1
compression so you can turn up the boost high.
I think you should just keep saving for a supercharger.

Then you have a forged crank so,you can run up to ten
psi. of boost on the engine and your stock bottom end
will still hold up fine.You honestly don't need forged rods and pistons
if your only going to run 8-10 psi. of boost from a supercharger.
Just plan on getting a tune that's all and you will be fine.
What supercharger do you plan on running on your Mach?
As for beefing up your rear end get a 31 spline traction-lock
differentail and 31 spline axles.Also don't get too low numeric
ring and pinion.Stick with 3.55 or 3.73 gears max as you won't
need anything lower with a supercharger on your car.

As long as you loaded the stock tune back on your old f150
before you sold it then it is not married to your old f150
so,you can use it on your mustang.Since you are getting a
supercharger get a custom tune loaded up on your SCT tuner
after you install your supercharger and then load it on there.

A lot of guys run the Vortech or procharger systems on the Mach's for the simple fact that they are centrifugal superchargers, so u don't lose the function of the shaker. As far as headers, I personally do not like the BBK's. I have a few friends running them and they don't sound good to me and it seems the workmanship is going downhill. I have Bassanni on mine and love them. But to each their own

I highly recommend getting a Procharger supercharger.Their are
alot of people running Prochargers they are reliable and dependable.
I can't wait until I can get a Procharger on my mustang.
Don't get the BBK headers they have terrible fitment and quality.
The Mac headers are ok.For headers I highly recommend the
Hooker or Kooks headers they have excellent fitment and quality.
I have Kooks headers on my mustang and I am very happy with them.
