2023 Mach 1
I bought my Mach 1 last week and was reading the forum about the Mach 1 being a parts car so I started researching. This is what I have found, these are from supposedly experts but they are still human. Are they right? Add or subtract, I would like to build a list of this:

BULLITT

Engine – Modified Bullitt Engine

SHELBY GT350

Air Intake

Brakes

Intake Manifold

Oil Cooling System

Oil-Filter Adapter

Stiffer Bushings In Front And Rear Subframe

Differential Cooler

Tow Link

Incandescent Park/Turn Lamps

Tremec Six-Speed Manual Transmission

SHELBY GT500

Rear Tire Spats

Rear Axle Cooling System

Rear Toe Link

Rear Diffuser

Are the mufflers from a Mach 1 donated from a mustang GT, GT350, or GT500? I know the exhaust tips are GT500.

Unfortunately, does not get the GT350 brakes but the Performance pack GT brakes

Yes, on further research I found that out too, unfortunately.

Yeah, seems like a major oversight for a car that is supposed to be "Track focused". Especially the cars with the Handling package

I'm not sure about the mufflers, they all look the same basic design to me, but I would assume there are differences with respect to inlet sizes, at least for the GT500.

The exaust tips themselves are definitely unique to the Mach. Having had all 3 cars I can say that the GT has the smallest tips and they're the least finished (outlets are not rolled back in so its a sharp edge).

The GT500 has the largest tips and are rolled and finished similar to the Mach 1.

The Mach 1 tips are rolled on the ends but also have perforated interiors. They're larger than the GT but smaller than the GT500. In my opinion, they're the best looking out of the 3. If they were the same size as the GT500 they'd be killer.

Mach 1 has unique 4.5" tips, GT500 has 5" tips. Imo there can't be any nicer tips than we got :clap:
4 nice big chrome tips with thick perforated walls and not just thin sheet metal like GT has, imo these should be standard on all Mustang GT's. Well, actually my opinion is, that GT should functionally be what Mach 1 is (without stripes and badges). That power in a performance car like this must come with handling and braking and endurance otherwise what's the point...

Then this chart is off saying Mach 1 has GT500 exhaust tips

So ford is saying unique 4.5 and other "experts" in the field are saying GT500, not anyone on this thread.

Initially I had the same feeling, but it appears in testing atleast that the M1 or GT PERF PKG 2 had better or near matching stopping distances when compared to GT350. The issue here isn't so much about brake components ect, its traction limited by the tires. Plus the numbers move around quite a bit as tire condition, temps, and surface friction come into play, lots of variables.

I think I saw a thread of someone swapping the rears out for the Shelby parts, not sure on that.

I think it's really more about repeated/sustained usage. The GT350 brakes are better suited for reducing rotational mass, and dissipating the heat from hard repeated braking. The one time "how fast can we stop this pig" metric is great for say an emergency stop on the highway, but the Performance pack brakes show their weakness when you get them hot, and I imagine the handling of the MACH 1 would also slightly improve with the lighter 2 piece rotors.

Agreed, and great points, I can definitely see the desire to change them.

Better yet, wish they were included from the start like you and BlkMach10510 were saying.

Virtually anything to get some weight off this car is welcome.
