Every few months, we get the urge to build a new Mustang! Once we finish up a project, it’s not long after that we start getting anxious to rip apart and rebuild again. We’ve built a 10-second Automatic 2011 GT, 11-second Automatic 2011 V6 and even an Automatic 2005 GT with Nitrous. It’s about time that we did a manual car, but what color should it be?
This past weekend, 611 Mustangs from all over the country came out to Delaware County Community College in Media, PA to help us celebrate customer appreciation and donate to a great cause, Wounded Warriors Project. We were ready to make this thing happen rain or shine with potential thunderstorms threatening our event! Did AmericanMuscle.com make it worth the trip?
So far, our 2011 V6 has completely transformed from a moderately responsive and dumbed-down V6 slushbox into a hard and fast-shifting beast that not only is good in a straight line, but kept up in a professional road-course environment. We could have called it quits and retired the car very respectably at Stage 3, right? That’s just not how we roll at AmericanMuscle…
Check out the footage as we head to New Jersey Motorsports Park with our 2011 V6 Mustang Project to test out what we could do in Stage 3 of our build! If you’ve been following along in Stage 1 and Stage 2, you’ve probably seen how well this car responds to aftermarket mods. We’ve shaved .75 seconds off of our 1/4 mile time, and it’s time to make this car corner and handle!
We’re one step closer to getting this mean V6 to out-run some of the competing V8 muscle cars on the market! If you saw what we did in Stage 1 of our build, get ready to dive even further into the 13’s at the track! With over a half-second gained with nothing but a Cold Air Intake and Tuner, we needed to help transfer the power evenly to the ground in Stage 2…
Take whatever you think you know about V6 Mustangs and throw it away. We’re taking a completely stock 2011 V6 Automatic, rated at 305hp from Ford, and showing the potential that Ford left us with this new 3.7L engine. We’ll be building this bad boy up in 4 Stages of modifications and put it to the test on the dyno, at the track and on the street!
In order to wrap up Stage 3 of our 2011 V6 Project Car build (coming soon – stay tuned!), we needed to show what it could do on road course, slalom and 0-60mph testing. What better place than New Jersey Motorsports Park? So, we took 6 of our Mustangs for a day of madness! We also took delivery of our new 2012 Boss 302 Mustang just a few days before. Coincidence? Hell no!
We’re not just your average Mustang parts store. We happen to be suckers for Mustangs as beautiful and legendary as our new Competition Orange Boss 302! We’ve had our eyes on these things since the rumors started to unfold into reality. Check out some awesome shots of the car…
Would you go to jail for a turbo kit?
