Here Is a List of the Best mod's for under, and their Prices
Intake Spacer $100 (roy M1R#)
Aluminum DS $200
Accufab TB $350
L/T's * $400-700
Diablo Predator $319
SCT SF3/X3 $479
thats a list of all the mod's i could find to be fairly inexpensive and show some results on a dyno/ street, and that can be installed with average joe tools and in average joe time. with the singular exception being the long tube headers, from what i understand they're a bitch.
*= prices vary depending on maker.
# For all you guy's that are looking at getting Intake spacer (which i recommend) RoyC on here is the man to get it from. He will help you in every way possible, any questions and concerns you have he can help and will be more than willing to help. After receiving a bunch of PMs from Macher's and Non Mach 1 owners i thought it would be a good idea to get his contact info.
Any kind of spacer you need from 3/8-3" this is the man!
I've been trying to figure that out too. My guess (and it really is a guess) is that it reduces resriction in the intake manifold in some way. Porting makes sense because it is the process of removing any burrs or castings that may impede airflow, but the spacer doesn't really do that. Maybe it allows more air to be in the intake at a given time?
this is going to be a very very rough explaination, but here it goes.
the intake on the mach is kinda crunched real close to the engine, and when the air goes in, it's really tight, and "restricted". So the intake spacer add's a gap so more air/ more cool air can flow in easier and thus becoming less of a restriction on the engine, and forcing the better air in allows for more hp/ tq to be achieved.... and it gives you better power thoughout the power band, so even though your peak gains aren't much, 4-7hp and 15-20 ftlb, this is an increase in the WHOLE rpm range.
wow i really butchered this with my limited understanding, but thats the kinda sorta way it works and what it does.

also, with a spacer there is a larger volume of air for the induction system to pull from, so when the injector pulse is mixed with the air coursing down the intake ports, there is also a slightly greater velocity to the charge. That's another part of the help
If MF were a Disney movie, I'd be the retarded step-brother who eventually saves everyone by hitting the burgular over the head with a frying pan and then clapping my hands all retarded-like.
you guys think cold air is better than ram air? I thought ram air was cheaper with almost equal performance. Also a friend was telling me that taking the air intake silencer off might add a couple horse but makes the car sound deeper but the best part is its free. Are there any downsides to doing this?
Ok because this ford guy was talking like removing that part can actually decrease hp when the engine gets hot cause it will suck in hot air instead of cold air but that wasnt making much sense. Will RAI, intake spacer and maybe o/r x pipe void my warranty?
