Since all the power improvements have centered on support equipment for an ATI-ProCharger P-1SC supercharger, the Mach 1's Four-Valve cam covers haven't budged. As is usually the case, the P-1SC included a three-core intercooler, but Athena's Mach also boasts Ford Racing Performance Parts 42-lb/hr injectors, an ATI-supplied computer chip, NGK TR6 spark plugs, and a complete Bassani exhaust system. To get the power to the pavement, Athena's Mach utilizes a Clutch Masters clutch, an Eaton differential, Strange 31-spline axles and 4.10 gears, and a Steeda Tri-Ax shifter.
