My Mustang FotoFix: Fox Bodies

Let’s be frank; words are tiring. Sure, they’re useful, but they’re also exhausting. Unless you’re a hermit who lives in a remote mountain cabin, you’re expected to read and listen to words all day, every day, and even put forth some of your own. We know how much this takes out of  you. And friends, we’re here to help. Welcome to My Mustang FotoFix, where all you need to do is sit back, relax and check out some really cool pictures of the best car to ever hit the street. While you’re at it, check out our fox body Mustang parts.

The only thing cooler than taking your Mustang to the track is gaining a little altitude while you do it.

How Can I Install a Supercharger on a Budget?

Ford Mustang Q&A

Michael asked: “I purchased a Vortech V2 supercharger for my ‘98 Mustang GT. What can I do to install it on a budget? I bought it second hand, and like so many other people, I don’t have money burning holes in my pockets. I was told to invest in an intercooler, MSD ignition, headers, and to remap my computer. It is a weekend driver so it won’t see any track time, only the road. The engine is a mostly-stock 4.6-liter V-8, just a chip and Borla exhaust. Any other info or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!”


Answer: With the economy in the crapper, it seems we’re all on a budget these days. Many of our customers are taking the Do-It-Yourself route, which is saving them big bucks on install fees. However, Mustang supercharger kits are NOT a DIY project for anyone without years of hands-on experience with cars and performance mods.

Doing engine work like this “on a budget” is risky. It’s imperative that everything be installed correctly or you could wind up with a connecting rod poking through your engine block. No one wants to see that. If you don’t have the dough for the best parts and the best shop, then putting your money in the right places can make all the difference.

Buzz Worthy Parts: Stack Racing Cold Air Intakes

It’s no secret that a cold air intake is one of the best ways to get more power out of your Mustang. This simple bolt-on performance clears the way for your powerplant to pull more fresh cold air into the combustion chamber, often resulting in an additional 5 to 10 ponies or more at the rear wheel. But with so many cold air intake kits or, CAIs, available for virtually every Mustang to come out of the Blue Oval, choosing one that’s right for you can be a serious challenge.
