Engine and Transmission Modifications

  • The functional Shaker is modeled after the original 1969 Shaker. The Shaker is mounted to the intake manifold and directs fresh air to the air filter tray assembly.
  • The dual 57mm throttle body feeds air through a cast aluminum intake manifold and into a set of new high flow four valve cylinder head.
  • The new cylinder heads house a 5.4L 4-valve intake cam and a high performance exhaust cam. This cam combination greatly enhances torque at lower engine speeds.
  • A new set of exhaust manifolds are port matched to the new cylinder heads.
  • The mufflers are tuned to create a unique sound and the tips are chromed setting the Mach 1 apart from other steeds in the stable.
  • The Mach 1 axle has been upgraded with a high torque differential that is coupled to a set of 3.55:1 final drive gears.
