Alex Pappas’s 2006 GT
Alex’s GT started out stock with 8,000 miles on the odometer. Two years later, it has 34,000 miles on it, and Alex has installed an amazing array of parts. He’s done all the work except mounting his Nittos on the MRR GT-1 wheels. The GT sits on Koni Yellow adjustable shocks and struts, GT500 strut mounts, and Eibach lowering springs. A BMR adjustable Mustang panhard bar, billet lower control arms, and LCA relocation brackets contribute to the GT’s mean stance. Alex also installed Steeda adjustable upper control arms and front and rear sway bars.
To give his Mustang its custom look, Alex has a Kaenen 3″ cowl hood, a Roush front bumper, 2010 painted mirror covers, and a GT500 rear spoiler. He also went with a Stack Racing 9 bar black billet grille, tinted tail lights and 6,000K HID lights for his headlights and fog lights. His finishing touches are 1966 GT badges and a blacked out faux gas cap. To personalize the inside, Alex added a GT500 steering wheel and pedals, along with “GT” floor mats and a Pioneer Avic D3 Boyo backup camera.
All those mods are nice, but the performance parts are where things get interesting. Here’s what Alex did to make 505 RWHP and 468RWTQ at 11.2 PSI.
- Whipple H.O. 2.3L supercharger with 3.375″ pulley
- Thump_RRR Racking billet tensioner with 76mm pulley
- McLeod RST twin disc clutch
- JLT carbon fiber inlet elbow
- Borla Stinger axlebacks
- Pypes offroad h-pipe
- 4.10 Ford Racing gears
- MGW short-throw shifter
- GT500 Brembo brakes

Kuro Tawil’s 2007 V6 Mustang!
Kuro’s 2007 Vista Blue Mustang is his first car, and he mowed lawns for three summers to save up enough money to pay for the car. His parents covered the other half of the cost, but only on the condition that Kuro not modify it. Since that wouldn’t do, he started doing modifications “under the radar”. Kuro’s crowning achievement was installing a whole motor when his parents weren’t looking! He convinced his parents he was switching out the clutch and swapped a 5.4 V8 into the Mustang. He’s also added a BBK aluminum CAI, a GT500 rear end, Saleen underdrive pulleys, and Prothane motor mounts.
The mod list doesn’t stop there, though. He’s added FR500c shocks and struts, an Eibach Pro lowering kit, Steeda upper strut mounts, and Eibach front/rear adjustable swaybars, all without his parents noticing. We’re not sure how he pulled it off, but he’s also personalized the exterior of the car with GT front, rear, and side skirts, a black billet grille, and Agent 47 mirrors. Kuro has also tinted the windows, deleted the antenna, added HID lights, and a Roush hood scoop. The inside boasts an impressive mod list, too, with Corbeau A4 seats, an NRG leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear seat delete, and a variety of vent and cluster mods.

Jeff Burd’s 2008 Roush 428R Mustang!!!
Jeff’s Roush Mustang is one of only 200 made, and Jack Roush himself signed it. The 428R has all the features you expect from a Roush vehicle, and some sweet extras. It features 18X10 Roush wheels and some awesome upgrades from a standard GT. The Roush makes 435 HP and it has an intercooled ROUSHcharger.
When you’re making that much power, you need a suspension that can handle it. The 428R has lowering springs, upgraded swaybars, and upgraded springs and shocks. It’s equipped with Cooper Zeon 2XS tires to help Jeff grip the road when he hits turns, and is rated to pull over 1G of force.
This red Mustang has some serious sex appeal–its Roush custom front fascia, chin spoiler, and hood scoop all give it a tough, powerful look. Being Roush, they didn’t stop with the obvious mods, but added hood pins, a black high-flow grille, and the iconic Roush emblems. With an exterior that looks this good, the inside has to match, so Jeff’s Mustang has leather seats, an upgraded dash, racing pedals, and a retro knob on the short throw shifter. Jeff gave the 428R his own touch by adding a rear window louver and a honeycomb taillight panel.
