    Depending on the price a left over gt350 maybe a better buy.

    I also thought it would of been nice to have the GT350 brake option at least on the upgrade package

    When I made my point of buying the new Mach1 vs a used GT350 earlier in this post was more HP vs price point...the Mach is a damn decent car for everthing you're getting...but if I'm gonna have pay 55-60k(JAWAG) for the Mach at least give 500+HP...I don't care if it's just 505hp...I'd be ponying up the cash...

    Now as far as the 5.2 Voodoo...to me at least...that is a motor that should stay exclusive to the GT350 & GT500...

    OMG. I was about to buy one, but then I saw the specs and my bank account. I guess I will just have to keep setting pennies aside for my 2001 Bullitt project. BTW, does anyone have a spare Coyote and T56 they'd like to donate? Lol

    I like the looks of the front end, However I wish they would have used the low profile composite core support like the GT350/500 so it had a lower profile hood that was specific to the Mach 1. Just like the GT350 and GT500 have.
    500 hp should have been factory spec as well.
    If the price is gonna land where everyone thinks it is, I’ll find a used GT350 and swap to a 6r80 or 10r80 transmission and throw a Whipple on it.
    Id definitely pack away the 6 speed in case I ever put it back stock.

    I do wonder thoe, how well will the A6 or A10 spin at those 9000rpms on the GT350?

    I like the idea just not sure how they would handle to high rpm.

    From personal knowledge the 6R80 handles 1200rwhp shifting at 8400rpm just fine :)

    Unless I missed it somewhere this article 2021 Mustang Mach 1 Power And Torque Numbers Potentially Revealed claims Ford is aiming for 525 hp and 450 lb/ft. Power numbers better than the Bullitt and comparable to the GT350, both of which the Mach 1 is replacing!
    Definitely keeping my fingers crossed that this is correct!

    It would be nice, but I doubt it. Ford's press release *did* say "Packing a specially calibrated 5.0-liter V8 engine that has a projected 480 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,600 rpm, Mach 1 is a fitting celebration of a nameplate born more than 50 years ago."

    Note the word "projected". So hopefully the door is still open for them to do a revised final power rating that is a bit higher than 480. We shall see.

    Well, remember the ‘20 GT500 pre release numbers, ‘at least’ 650hp then 700+hp then 700++hp or something to that effect.
    When finally released, it was much higher at 760hp.
    I’ve been wonder/hoping the same thing, that the final production would top 100hp/liter. I don’t think hitting 500hp on a specialty model is too much to ask.

    Edited once I re-read Ford’s press release and they do throw the “projected” word in there at one point, lol.

    Ford was also coy about the Trinity (13-14) GT500 with initial press releases claiming 650 hp, with only an (often overlooked) asterisk and subtitle Denoting that was preproduction numbers.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the 480hp is the final power rating in this case though. I’d love for them to swing a surprise, but I seriously doubt it this time.

    The planted article saying engineers were targeting 525, issued days before the Mach1 unveiling saying 480 may have been click bait or a planted story. I could be wrong.
