    Default 2nd place in Mustang car show!

    For those interested in cars, I thought I'd post up some pics of my 2003 Mach 1 Mustang from World Ford Challenge held at Gateway International just outside of St. Louis. It was actually last weekend, but I just got around to posting the pics. There were approximately 400 to 500 Mustangs (all years) at the show, with 15 to 20 in my class. I was shocked when they called my name for a second place trophy as I didn't expect to win anything. Enjoy the pics!

    Congrats.

    Don't know much about cars, so what were the judges looking for? Tell us a little more about your Mustang...

    Those pics look nice. When you come help me install my stuff, I get to drive your car :) Don't worry, there won't be any "new" dings. ;)

    I'd be glad too-wasn't to sure how much interest there would be on an audio forum lol. It's an Azure Blue 2003 Mach 1 Mustang, 5 speed, with one of two available options-Interior Upgrade Package (IUP). The other available option was a automatic transmission. These are a limited production car made from 2003 to 2004 (about 10,000 were made in 2003, while only 7000 or so were made in 2004). It has a 4.6 DOHC engine rated at 305 HP/320 FT/TQ as rated from the factory, but I have added a few aftermarket items to up the HP/TQ a little :D So far, I've added a cold air intake (allows more air to enter the engine), larger diameter O/R h-pipe and Borla Stinger catback-these two are exhaust mods, intake spacer to pick up the low end torque, a short throw shifter, and dyno tune (optimizies the air/fuel ratio for max HP/TQ). The car dynoed 323 HP/343 FT/TQ at the rear wheels after the dyno tune-the car made around 270 HP at the wheels when stock for comparisons sake. I drag race the car regularly too-my best time was at our local 1/4 mile track - 12.78 @ 109 on stock tires last fall when the weather was really good.

    Congrats! Looks like it hasn't even left the factory yet!

    Those few mods gave you a pretty nice boost in numbers, too! I bet she's fun to drive! :D
