To continue our Bolt-on Build-up series, we’ve taken a stock 2008 Shelby GT500 boosted the power to over 550 rear wheel horsepower, all with only basic bolt-on modifications. If you like what you see in Stage 1, complete the series by checking out Stage 2 and Stage 3 as well!
This weekend is the debut of the all new Need For Speed movie, featuring a number of well-known actors and one very well known ponycar–the Ford Mustang.
Following up Stage 3 where our 2006 Grabber Blue GT was outfitted with the parts needed to properly prepare the car for a supercharger, as well as putting the rotating mass on a serious diet, Stage 4 is when Grabber Boost finally sees forced induction and heads to the track to try to run down our 2014 5.0L Coyote.
Back with another round of project cars, both Justin and Dave have recruited teams and are tangled up in some friendly competition. both are building a Grabber Blue GTs–Justin in his 2014 GT and Dave in his 2006 GT–to see who can build the better drag car. Here we have Stage 1 of both builds with stock dyno and 1/4 mile track times as well as comparable numbers after throwing on some essential bolt-on mods. While you can probably assume who’s got more power under the hood, you might be surprised at the results.
While most of us are struggling with New Year’s resolutions and making plans for springtime, January is the month that AmericanMuscle will be bringing you brand new project car footage from our 2014 GT, 2006 GT and Convertible Fox Body builds. AmericanMuscle is also now carrying new parts like Kooks axleback exhausts and MMD’s ducktail spoiler for 2005-2009 Mustangs. Oh, and let’s not forget about all the 2015 Mustang news and information that Ford has divulged of late.
Justin Bell takes this 5.0L Mustang police car out for a training session with the Oxnard Police Department. The Result: a pair of shredded rear tires and one soon-to-be revoked driver’s license.
Yeah, it’s that kind of video. If you haven’t found a reason to get into the holiday spirits yet, maybe this video will sway you. Ford and Ken Block send their season’s greeting with a unique holiday rendition of Snowkhana. If you missed the Ken Box tribute video, you might want to check that one out, too.
