Shane Peltz’s silver V6 Mustang is sleek and stylish. As Shane says, “My father bought me my 2006 Mustang V6 thinking we could make a real head turner. With my father’s love for cars and my sense of style we knew we could do it. We started this monster project by putting on a chin spoiler. From there, we decided to dress up the hood by putting on a carbon hood scoop and two black hood pins. From the hood to the engine compartment, we have Red Line chrome hood struts. To brace the the car around turns, we put a Steeda strut tower brace on… We designed our own custom Kat-skin interior. Also we installed triple pod racing gauges and rear window side louvers. Rear racing diffuser and custom striping round out our project. Thank you for all your help AmericanMuscle.” (more…)
Angela Leggett’s 2003 Dark Shadow V6 Mustang. Here are the details of Angela’s awesome ride.
Model: V6 Mustang Coupe
Color: Dark Shadow
Wheel style & size: Cobra R 17X9
Comments: “I have no trophies and consider this Mustang a work in progress. I have just added the Eibach pro-line springs, struts, and shocks and it rides, drives, looks, and handles 100% better, best mod I could have done. I’m working on many more things as the money comes. I call this Mustang the Dark Horse because it is an under dog being a V6 and my hopes are to change that soon with a super charger and some power upgrades.”

We’ve got a great variety of styling parts available, and most of them can be installed in a few minutes to a few hours. No matter what you need to cruise in comfort and style, we’ve got you covered.
Everywhere I’ve turned lately, New Edge owners have been saying they’re not feeling the love. They’re not the most current generation of ponies any more, and lots of manufacturers are focusing on the S197′s for cool new parts. Unfortunately, I’m not the CEO of a huge manufacturing company, so I can’t do anything about the new parts. I do have a little pull on the blog, though, and I thought it was time to show the New Edges some love. So here are seven sweet ‘Stangs for you to enjoy.
All a Mustang ever needs to shine is sunlight. A little chrome never hurts, though.
The Cold-Air Conundrum
Question: “I just bought a Mustang and my friend told me I should get a cold air intake as my first mod, but I’m new to cars and I was wondering what a cold air intake is and how it helps my car.”
This is a great question, and one I hear almost daily. Cold-air intakes are great first mods because their easy installation makes them a perfect DIY project. Before we delve into the details, let’s start with the basics. Your stock intake consists of the airbox, the mass air-flow sensor (aka “MAF”), and the air inlet tube that connects to the throttle body. The airbox houses the air filter and in some cases the MAF. An AmericanMuscle Mustang air filter removes moisture and particulates like dust and pollen from your Stang – all things you don’t want in your engine. Once the air is clean and dry, it’s the MAF’s responsibility to tell the computer how much air the engine is getting, which is why your car won’t run (well) without it. With the cleaning, drying, and measuring out of the way it’s just a short trip up the inlet tube to the throttle body and into the engine. Seems pretty simple, right? Well it is, but let’s see how an aftermarket intake differs from stock, and how that affects your Pony. (more…)
