Grand Prize Winner: Ron’s 2009 Bullitt!
Wheel style & size: 18 x 9 and 18 x 10
Tire brand & size: NT555 255/45 & 285/40
Ron’s Mustang Bullitt has an impressive list of modifications. An Edelbrock E-Force Street-Legal Supercharger has bumped his dyno numbers up to 427RWHP and 396 RWTQ. With a Dynotech 3.5″ aluminum driveshaft, a BMR driveshaft loop and 4.10 Ford Racing gears, Ron’s making the most of all that horsepower. In order to help him harness all that power, the Bullitt now features a Steeda adjustable panhard rod, a CHE K-frame brace with Q-Limiters, BMR billet lower control arms, and Koni Yellow shocks and struts.
Ron hasn’t neglected his Bullitt’s appearance for the sake of performance, though. He’s added sequential tail lights and satin tail light trim, plus a chrome surround for the rear panel and a blackout panel. DG window louvers, smoked front turn signals with stealth bulbs, and SHR lower grille inserts round out his exterior mods. In terms of the interior, the ’09 features Autometer wideband air/fuel and boost gauges on an SOS double gauge pillar mount.
Nick says that his 2004 Cobra is “Just a family car. It has a car seat in the back and a stroller in the trunk, but don’t let that fool you. No trophies, just some street kills. The car went 11.79 @118 on the stock Eaton (supercharger), and I’m looking for 10′s this year.” For a ride that’s only a family car, Nick’s Cobra rocks some impressive mods. From a Whipple supercharger with 16 pounds of boost to 4.10 gears to custom-designed hood vents to a Bassani catback exhaust, the Cobra is personalized. It may carry a car seat and a stroller, but any daily driver this awesome is much, much cooler than “just a family car.”
Waldo’s tangerine 1994 is remarkable, and not just because of the color. He’s gone through a few engines in his quest to find the perfect combination of motor and turbo. When the Mustang was last dyno’d, it put out 640RWHP and 651RWTQ. Since then, he’s upgraded his turbo and is looking forward to seeing what kind of numbers he’ll get. The car is far from stock, with a custom engine and turbo setup and a wide variety of fuel and electrical modifications. The Mustang’s brakes and suspension have also been upgraded, and the interior received an extensive makeover including new gauges, a rear seat delete, and new Corbeau seats, too.
Marc’s silver ’89 LX coupe is a heavily modified beast. This is Marc’s fourth fox, but it’s easy to see why it’s his favorite. The silver fox features an R302 FMS block that’s been bored out to 306 cubic inches, Trick Flow heads, Crane Gold Roller rockers, custom ground Crane roller rockers, and more engine mods than we can list. The suspension’s been beefed up, and the exterior and the interior have been personalized. Since Marc prefers a simple look he went with a Harwood cowl hood, custom lights, and tinted windows. He’s taken home more than his share of 1st place and best in show trophies, so we’d say the look has a lot of appeal.
