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
The automotive designers and modelers at Ford are the true creators–they are the engineers behind what each and every Mustang looks like, and they communicate not by words and confusing explanations, but through plain old masking tape.
Stage two has these cars tightening up their stock suspension and addressing a few other key needs before heading back to the track. Those 2005-2014 GT owners who want a road map to building a Mustang that rides like it’s on rails, take notes.
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.
Project Fox Body is back with the same look and a significant boost in power for Stage 4. Check out what’s now powering our 450+rwhp one-off 1993 Cobra convertible–a once-upon-a-time junkyard afterthought now converted into a formidable opponent on the street and at the track.
Two police sergeants from Oxnard, CA have developed an ingenious way to motivate troubled teens–steering them to the drag strip instead of letting them ride with local gangs.
Step inside the world of SEMA as Justin shows you some of the coolest custom Mustangs ever built. Plus, you’ll get a first person view as Vaugh Gittin Jr. and Jack Roush Jr. shred tires while drifting for the crowds as well as an up close and personal look at MMD’s custom built 2014 Mustang GT
