AmericanMuscle to Dominate 2008 Race Season With Mustang Type-R

Click to enlarge!

AmericanMuscle to dominate 2008 Race Season with the release of its Multi-Purpose Ultimate Race Edition Mustang Type-R. The Mustang Type-R is expected to compete and win in NASCAR, Formula1, Indy Car, All Classes of NHRA and NMRA Drag Racing, Mud Wrestling, and the 24 Hour LeMans.

We carefully studied the fastest 4 cylinder import performance cars that we have seen in our area and said, “hey…why can’t we apply these time proven methods to a V6 or even a V8!” So we did, and now we believe that we have truly created the ultimate driving machine!

Performance Modifications:

  • Quint Supercharger Sticker – This sticker replicates all the performance of having 5 superchargers without the extra weight on your car and lets the world know we are serious about performance. We slapped this baby right on our black painted headlights for high contrast performance!
  • Type-R Stickers – The true power of this Mustang comes from its numerous strategically placed Type-R stickers and badges. Each one alone has no problem multiplying the performance of this vehicle by tenfold!
  • Chrome Plated NAZ Bottle – We mounted the Chrome Plated NAZ bottle in front of the radiator in the engine bay so the world could see through our open grille that we are running NAZ. To help save weight, we ditched the heavy plumbing to inject the NAZ into the motor and only hooked the bottle to the Purge Valve.
  • Massive Aluminum Rear Wing – Not only does it look cool, but we are pretty sure it adds some serious horsepower to the rear!
  • Cut Mufflers – We wanted to get the biggest exhaust tips we could on this baby so we took a Sawzall to the mufflers and cut the back of the muffler off! From there we were able to gut the inside of the muffler which effectively saved weight and gave us almost 13 inch wide exhaust tips!
  • Quad Euro-Style Screw-On Fog Lights – In order to increase the aerodynamics and horsepower output of our front end, we strategically screwed Euro-style fog lights into the bumper and the chin spoiler. We went with a twin-yellow light coupled with a twin-blue light combo to increase the area of our powerband.
  • Triple Aluminum Drag Racing Hood Scoops – To complete the competition look of our Mustang we glued triple aluminum hood scoops to our hood. Not only did this boost our performance, but we have two more scoops then any top-fueler in the NHRA!
  • Extensive Under The Hood Modifications – We replaced factory inlet tube with 11 inline electric superchargers and stabilized their combined 250CFM airflow with twin Turbonators.
  • Solid Chrome Hubcaps – These Solid Chrome Hubcaps completely hide the factory 16 inch rims for a sleek aerodynamic look, helping to further multiply the horsepower output of our motor. Horsepower Output Chart before and after hubcap installation.
  • Bright Purple Paint Job – Our Bright Purple Paint really screams performance to the point where we fear officials might not even let us compete if they think the advantage it gives us might constitute cheating.
  • Fast Looking Stickers – We found the fastest looking stickers we could to help boost performance and slapped them wherever they could fit.
  • Cool Japanese Character Sticker – We are not quite sure what it means, but according to the eBay seller we got bought it from these stickers are all the rage in the JDM…whatever that means.
  • Extensive Stereo Modifications – We removed the back seat and passenger seat and we were able to squeeze 17 total subwoofers inside the car. To achieve the most intimidating sound possible we removed the spare tire and any and all sound dampening material inside the car and filled the spare tire well with marbles. Surprisingly this gave us one of the highest performance gains over any other mod we did!

The AmericanMuscle.com Dirt Don’t Hurt Contest is finally over and it is time to announce the winners! With over 70 entries to this contest, this was no easy task.

We had some really good entries and some hilarious beater cars to boot! With this being a Mustang site, I decided to give the top three prizes to three daring souls that actually brave the winter weather forces in their precious Mustangs. But in keeping with the spirit of the contest, I have selected two high quality beater cars as runner ups and each shall be receiving an American Muscle T-Shirt!

With that said, we can now get on to the good part…the winners:

  • 1st Prize – Justin T. of Chandler, AZ:

    Not everyone’s beater needs to be beat! Just take a look at Norman’s fully customized “General Flea”! Norman tricked out this General Lee tribute with some sick custom paint and eye popping graphics. I don’t know about you, but I am super serially jealous!

AM Sponsors Black Mustang Club St. Patrick’s Day Beach Cruise

On March 15th, 2008, the Black Mustang Club held its annual St. Patrick’s Day Beach Cruise. While American Muscle was freezing its butts off in good old Pennsylvania, the BMC was cruising the California Coasts in sunny bliss!

The events of the day included a scenic cruise around the Palos Verdes Peninsula carefully planned to hug the coast rather than cruising on the freeways with two organized stops for photo opportunities. Not only were the views a pleasure, but the spirited turns and curves of the route gave this cruise more excitement! Following the cruise all guests partook in food, drinks, and a prize raffle at an Irish Pub in Huntington Beach reserved especially for the event’s participants.

American Muscle donated a $100 Gift Certificate for the prize raffle as well as some Free American Muscle Swag. To check out the cruise for yourself, The Black Mustang Club provided these videos for your enjoyment:

AmericanMuscle.com to Sponsor 1000HP Ford GT ECTA Land Speed Record Attempt!

AmericanMuscle.com to Sponsor
1000HP Ford GT ECTA Land Speed Record Attempt!

Check out our exclusive Image Gallery here!


AmericanMuscle (www.americanmuscle.com) is helping to sponsor an attempt at the ECTA Land Speed Record for a Production Supercharged vehicle with a Stock Bottom End which is currently at 186.853MPH from a standing mile. Attempting this feat will be the car’s 73 year old owner Robert Self. The attempt will be made April 5-6th, 2008 at the East Coast Timing Association (ECTA) in Maxton, North Carolina. On the ECTA’s 1mile x 30ft abandoned runway track, Robert is looking to hit a cool 200-210MPH in his Ford GT and have room to stop.

A fully custom roll cage, Halon fire extinguishing system, and drag chute have been installed by S&W Racecars. All performance enhancements and custom SCT dynamometer tuning have been performed by Eric Swarr & his team at Swarr Auto Performance Center in Collegeville, Pennsylvania (www.swarrauto.com). In addition to the $15,000 Whipple Industries Supercharger upgrade, Robert has an additional $30,000 over the car’s $170,000 base price invested in performance and safety upgrades. AmericanMuscle.com will be setting Robert up with the proper tire setup for running speeds in excess of 200MPH in a 1000+ horsepower car, and also helping to promote the event.
