If you’ve been following our 2012 Boss 302, you know that we’ve been doing what many Boss owners dare to do… use the car for what it was built for! Most Mustang junkies will know that one of the coolest features on the car was the fact that it came with factory side-exit exhaust. We loved the idea… and when we added over 60 horsepower and 69 torque to our stock Boss with some upgrades, we were really sad to see it go. We had to do something about this!
A few weeks back, Pete Epple of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords dropped by to check out our untouched 2012 Boss 302! While he was here, we added a few modifications to help us make this thing just a little bit faster! After a round of mods and dyno tuning, we headed to the track to check out what it could do against our 2011 Automatic Mustang GT with similar mods. Watch out for the full story and details in the January issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Ford Magazine, dropping November 23, 2011!
A few weeks back, we took a trip to Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY with the 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords Magazine crew to give them a taste of our Procharged 2011 V6 – currently holding the record for the fastest 2011 V6 Mustang in the world. Steve Turner, chief editor at 5.0, wanted to get some seat time to see exactly what the car could do! It was definitely an honor, and he had no problem strapping in and putting his foot to the floor!
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…
Check out the Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords 2011 Mustang GT, as they unveiled it early this month at the SEMA Show 2010 in Las Vegas, NV. Their brand new street/strip beast has tons of new parts from AmericanMuscle.com, and we’re really excited to help out!
