This past weekend was the SSOTN (SuperStallions of the Net) Fall Nationals at Cecil County Dragway in Maryland. Some of the baddest Mustangs on the net showed up to battle head-to-head in perfect track conditions, sunny 65 degree weather! However, AmericanMuscle staff member, Ryan Duncan, got more than he bargained for!
Kuro Tawil’s 2007 V6 Mustang!
Kuro’s 2007 Vista Blue Mustang is his first car, and he mowed lawns for three summers to save up enough money to pay for the car. His parents covered the other half of the cost, but only on the condition that Kuro not modify it. Since that wouldn’t do, he started doing modifications “under the radar”. Kuro’s crowning achievement was installing a whole motor when his parents weren’t looking! He convinced his parents he was switching out the clutch and swapped a 5.4 V8 into the Mustang. He’s also added a BBK aluminum CAI, a GT500 rear end, Saleen underdrive pulleys, and Prothane motor mounts.
The mod list doesn’t stop there, though. He’s added FR500c shocks and struts, an Eibach Pro lowering kit, Steeda upper strut mounts, and Eibach front/rear adjustable swaybars, all without his parents noticing. We’re not sure how he pulled it off, but he’s also personalized the exterior of the car with GT front, rear, and side skirts, a black billet grille, and Agent 47 mirrors. Kuro has also tinted the windows, deleted the antenna, added HID lights, and a Roush hood scoop. The inside boasts an impressive mod list, too, with Corbeau A4 seats, an NRG leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear seat delete, and a variety of vent and cluster mods.
