GT500 on the Dyno: $60k On Fire!

Everyone has had their share of miserable days (afterall, today IS Monday). I promise you, after watching this video, you really won’t feel that bad about your own problems.

800RWHP gone in a flash, no pun intended! While you want to feel bad for this guy, it was done on a completely stock GT500 bottom end and the owner has been having fun with the car for quite some time. With the addition of a forged bottom end, the owner of Blue Diamond says the car will be back within the next month or so with 1100-1200RWHP!

December’s Ride of the Month

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. (more…)

Is Going Fast in Your Mustang Too Easy?

Mike Galimi's 07 or New 2011?

Hey everyone, this is Mike Galimi and the AmericanMuscle.com guys have asked me to post regular blogs about stuff going down in the wild world of Mustangs. Please check back regularly as I will be posting various information, experiences, videos, pictures, and everything cool in our hobby on a regular basis.

Is Going Fast Too Easy?

I think I am ready to part ways with my supercharged 2007 Mustang GT. It runs mid-11s and getting there was far too easy. But I think I am ready to part ways with it in order to make room for a 2011 Mustang GT. The reason is simple, the new 5.0L is even easier to make run 11s, and ultimately 10s, than my supercharged Three-Valve. Not to mention all of the creature comfort upgrades between the two model years. After covering the AmericanMuscle.com 2011 Mustang GT for Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords December 2010 issue, I saw how easy it was to run fast.

Since that article hit newsstands, the car has gone a best of 11.90 at 118 and they haven’t even hit with a shot of juice from the Zex kit that’s onboard. The speed is just 1.5 mph shy of where my supercharged Three-Valve car runs. The shop car’s track life is about to get quicker as there are rumors running around the AmericanMuscle.com compound that a supercharger is waiting to be bolted on this winter. Once that happens, 10-second times are sure to be reality.

It seems every new Mustang makes achieving certain performance benchmarks that much easier. We went from 14-second stock cars to 13-second ones, and now the 2011 Mustang GT can run 12s with the right driver and weather conditions off the showroom floor. The AmericanMuscle.com car was the first 2011 I drove and I loved it, smooth, comfortable and soon to be a 10-second player.

So, is it too easy to go fast? Tell me how you got your car to tear it up at the track…
