Stage 4 BOOSTS Our 2011 V6 Mustang to 12 Seconds!

So far, our 2011 V6 has completely transformed from a moderately responsive and dumbed-down V6 slushbox into a hard and fast-shifting beast that not only is good in a straight line, but kept up in a professional road-course environment. We could have called it quits and retired the car very respectably at Stage 3, right? That’s just not how we roll at AmericanMuscle…

VIDEO: Can our 2011 V6 Mustang Handle Stage 3?

Check out the footage as we head to New Jersey Motorsports Park with our 2011 V6 Mustang Project to test out what we could do in Stage 3 of our build!

We’ll be building this bad boy up in 4 Stages of modifications and put it to the test on the dyno, at the track and on the street!

A Day at the Track with AmericanMuscle.com

In order to wrap up Stage 3 of our 2011 V6 Project Car build (coming soon – stay tuned!), we needed to show what it could do on road course, slalom and 0-60mph testing. What better place than New Jersey Motorsports Park? So, we took 6 of our Mustangs for a day of madness! We also took delivery of our new 2012 Boss 302 Mustang just a few days before. Coincidence? Hell no!
