Not too long ago, we received a dare from our customers on Facebook, YouTube and a few different Mustang enthusiast forums. The message was clear: we want to see you race your 2011 GT and your 2012 Boss 302 at the drag strip. The timing was perfect… we had two employees
beating their chests going back and forth about who the better driver is. It was time for them to “put up or shut up”, and shortly after, we headed to Cecil County Dragway for a grudge match!
If you’ve been following along throughout our 2011 V6 Mustang project, you know we left off with a respectable 12.47 1/4 mile pass at the end of Stage 4. That was a really good time for what we had into the car up until that point. It was even the fastest recorded 11-12 V6 pass for quite some time until Central Florida Motorsports and another privately owned 2011 V6 both pulled amazing times of 12.2 and 12.34, sending us back to the grind!
We hit the garage hard, with some help from Circle D Performance, PSI Performance, Procharger and a good set of slicks & skinny’s, we wanted 11’s… BADLY!
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 might be having too much fun, but last week AmericanMuscle rented out the Lightning road course over at New Jersey Motorsports Park. We brought our brand new Boss 302 Mustang and decided to tear up the course against a 2010 Camaro SS! (oh yes we did!)
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…
This past weekend, SpeedTV’s Pass Time headed to Lafayette, LA for filming. When this 2011 Mustang GT pulled up to the line, equipped with a 9PSI Roush supercharger, the contestants were quick to write it off!
