Just when we thought the Cobra Jet was one of the baddest beasts around, Ford Racing unveils a whole new level of intimidation. The naturally aspirated and supercharged Cobra Jets are awesome cars, no doubt, but Ford Racing decided to step it up a notch! They just introduced their turn-key “Twin Turbo Cobra Jet” concept at this year’s SEMA show! The Ford booth was stocked full of some awesome rides, but the Cobra Jet stole the show sitting right smack in the middle of all the action.
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, watch All Girls Garage on the Velocity Channel! The Bama team helped the girls take their 2012 Mustang RTR to the next level with some performance mods to help their 5.0 pick up a few horses. They installed:
It’s not every day that an opportunity presents itself to drive a brand spankin’ new 2013 Shelby GT500 across country, but if someone hands you the keys to one, you take them! These guys from Edmund’s did just that and in one of the best colors around, Deep Impact Blue.
Most people wouldn’t dare touch their cars with a black permanent marker, let alone pay someone to give it a custom two-tone Sharpie “paint job”. However, this guy, Chris, did the unthinkable and it turned out pretty badass if you ask me!
Nowadays there are endless options to choose from when it comes to modifying your Mustang and making it yours. There are some kickass Mustangs out there and then there are, well… others! The owners of these Mustangs have definitely chosen a unique path with their rides…
As we speak, you could be cashing a check for as much as $250! It’s the Holiday season, and let’s be honest… who couldn’t use a few hundred bucks in their pocket? There are two companies out there right now trying to give a little back if you’re in the market for Mustang parts this season. If you’re looking for suspension parts or a supercharger – it just got better!
Buy a complete Vortech Supercharging system between 10/01/2010 and 12/31/2010 and get a $250 rebate. That’s all there is to it! After you purchase that sweet new supercharger, simply head over to Vortech Superchargers Rebate information and fill out their $250 Rebate Form. The hardest part is deciding what you want to spend $250 on!
Looking for suspension? How about any new Eibach PRO-KIT performance spring kit or ANTI-ROLL-KIT sway bars –10% rebate? I’ll tell you what – I’ll even ship them ground for free! …what?! 😉
So tell me, what’s on your list this Holiday season?
Little changes can make a big difference in the way your car looks. Installing a new set of headlights is a quick, easy change that makes a huge difference in the overall look of your Mustang. A relatively small amount of work will give your pony a tougher, sexier, or edgier look. Everybody has different tastes, especially when it comes to tint levels, so we want to know what your favorite looks are. We’ve listed some of our most popular headlights below, displayed by generation and ready for you to vote on. If you don’t see your favorite style, leave us a comment to let us know what style you prefer.
Great question, stangin! Lowering your Mustang has a number of benefits, the most noticeable being appearance and performance. By lowering the vehicle, you lower the center of gravity, which greatly improves handling and reduces body roll & nose-dive. Unsightly wheel gap is also eliminated, giving your Stang a sleek, intimidating look (especially over a set of 17”, 18” or 19” wheels).
Lowering kits that are designed solely for performance gains often make big sacrifices when it comes to ride quality, and lowering the car more than 1.5” will require caster/camber plates and a ball joint kit to properly realign the suspension. Considering you want to maintain decent ride quality, I’d recommend the Eibach Pro-Kit; match it with the Eibach Pro-Damper kit or a set of Tokico shocks & struts and you’ve got a great performance suspension without sacrificing ride quality, or rattling your teeth out of your skull!
The Eibach kit lowers the front 1.3” and the rear 1.4” (approximately), so a simple alignment after installation should be all you need to get your pony rolling again. This is the same set of lowering springs that we installed in our 2011 Mustang project car, and we’ve taken that car both to the track and the grocery store. Best of luck with your suspension and keep the questions coming!
When choosing aftermarket Mustang gears (or any aftermarket mod), it’s important to consider what type of driving you do/want to do with the car, how much power you currently make, and how much power you intend to make.
Aftermarket rear-end gears are designed to get you off the line faster, so you’re going to burn through first gear (and second… and third…) much more quickly than with your stock gears. This isn’t as much of a hassle with an automatic transmission because you aren’t the one shifting, but if your Mustang is a stick and you do any kind of driving in a city or heavy traffic, you’d be wise to avoid the steeper ratios. Considering your pony is already super charged, I would have to side with your friends and recommend the 3.73 gears; they’ll give you the extra kick off the line that you want without making driving a chore.
When installing aftermarket gears, it’s always a good idea to get a bearing kit and replace the shims, bearings, and other items that wear out over time. This will complete your rear-end rebuild and make sure you keep that rubber burning for a long time.
