You mean, THAT thing runs? I didn’t realize Built Ford Tough included Tornado Tough, too! This guy was captured driving his SN95 Ford Mustang convertible out of the tornado rubble, after some super-storms swept through the South taking entire neighborhoods off of the map in Alabama and neighboring states. He obviously wasn’t gonna let a storm get the best of his Stang!
Want a 10 second Mustang? Did you just say “yes!” out loud? It’s okay… we all do! The Bama Custom Tuning team decided to turn this dream into a reality when they slapped on a few bolt-on performance parts to our Automatic 2011 5.0L GT. Check out these mods!
What might get you even more excited about the new BOSS 302 than the video above? How about some spy photos from our friends over at TheMustangSource! A whole line of colorful BOSS 302’s ready to roll out…
How badass is THIS!? The 2011 5.0L Mustang GT that Vortech Superchargers brought out to SVTPerformance.com’s Dyno Day completely wowed the crowd on its insane dyno run at GTR Performance this past weekend. The 5.0L GT was rockin’ the new blower plus exhaust to equal out to an amazing 577 rear wheel horsepower at only 6 PSI on GTR’s Dynojet. Killin’ it! Check out the video and see for yourself.
You, also, can have 600+ horses under your foot with one of these bad boys installed on your new 2011 Mustang GT. Don’t hesitate to contact AmericanMuscle to get yourself all setup with a new Vortech HO system that is known for the highest efficiency, reliability and performance out there in the market. You know you can’t resist the urge to make your friends jealous. You already did it with your new 5.0L. Now you can do it with your new SUPERCHARGED 5.0L! Go ahead, rub it in.
We all know that the new 2012 BOSS 302 is a beast! Well, I do, anyway. I’m hoping you agree, especially after watching the video of the quarter mile run on the Dynojet at the Cobo Hall Auto Show held in Detroit. Although it is virtually stimulated, it still lit it up with a VERY nice 12.4 second run. Thanks to one of our boys over at Dynojet, we got this sneak peek photo of the sleeping beauty before they fired her on up!
Many of you have seen the original SCT Touch Screen Xtreme (TSX) that allows you to datalog wirelessly through your Mustang’s OBD-II data-port. Well, SCT is taking that technology one step further. Check out what they’re doing with an iPad! You’ll be able to connect and tune your vehicle wirelessly with any iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch!
Everyone has had their share of miserable days (afterall, today IS Monday). I promise you, after watching this video, you really won’t feel that bad about your own problems.
800RWHP gone in a flash, no pun intended! While you want to feel bad for this guy, it was done on a completely stock GT500 bottom end and the owner has been having fun with the car for quite some time. With the addition of a forged bottom end, the owner of Blue Diamond says the car will be back within the next month or so with 1100-1200RWHP!
I was surfing around last night, when I stumbled upon this video. Either Vaughn Gittin Jr. had a kid, or this is an amazing example of someone who was born to drive!
Where were those things when I was 4? Either way – I’ve got $5 that says at age 16, he passes his parallel parking test on the first try!
So tell me, what was your first experience driving a Mustang?
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…
