For Stage 2 of the AmericanMuscle.com 2012 Mustang GT Project Car build, we wanted Project Blackout to really start dominating as a street car. We decided it was time to kick it up a notch on this car a little and drop in more performance mods to get some horsepower crankin’! We’re getting this car ready for SERIOUS horsepower!
I guess I should introduce you to our new manual 2012 Mustang GT. We’ve named it Project Blackout, and if you’ve been following our build on our Facebook page, you probably know that we’re building it up in 4 Stages, from simple bolt-ons, to the ultimate street Mustang with more horsepower than you’d ever need!
The 2015 Mustang reveal is getting closer and there’s been a lot of hype from the Mustang community about the new model! J. Mays, Ford’s Creative Chief Officer, previously said the new gen model will be less retro and way more modern as to move the Mustang name forward. That has people creating their own renderings of what they think it will look like.
Check this out… a good customer dropped of their 2011 5.0L Mustang GT California Special, topped off with a Vortech Supercharger, for some custom tuning on the dyno from our team at Bama Performance. Mike Wilson, Bama lead calibrator, strapped down this blown 5.0L Ford Mustang to our dyno and let it rip! The results…
Who’s got the most powerful street-legal Mustang in the Northeast? We’re going to find out on March 23rd, 2012! The second event in the Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords magazine series will be held at our Dynojet chassis dyno facility, here at AmericanMuscle.com in Malvern, PA. Does your Mustang have what it takes to take down the competition? Do you want to be featured in a national Mustang magazine?
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!
If you missed the AmericanMuscle.com 3rd Annual Mustang Show, we hope to see you at the 4th annual show on August 12th, 2012! We’re headed back to the Delaware County Community College campus in Media, PA for the second year in a row and we hope to see you there. Check out what our good friends at Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Magazine had to say about their time at the show last year…
We needed an epic shot for the cover of our new 79-04 Mustang catalog. I think the marketing team might have been waiting for an excuse, but hey, either way – the recipe was simple! You take (1) part high horsepower Mustang and mix it in with (2) parts demolishing a set of rear tires. Grab your camera, and the burnout video above is what you get!
We’ve always had a ton of respect for the troops that serve our country. We’ve been helping send care packages, hooking up our customers with a military discount and even donating proceeds from our annual car show to Homes for our Troops and the Wounded Warrior Project. As great as that is, sometimes it’s just nice to hook up customers who serve our country directly!
A few months back, one of our customers serving in Afghanistan wrote us:
We dropped a brand new Accel Super Coil on Plug Kit into our 2011 Automatic Mustang GT to see what kind of horsepower gains were left on the table. Rated at over 412 horsepower, you really wouldn’t think that there’s a ton of room for improvement by adding affordable bolt-on performance mods (besides the basic CAI/Tuner/Exhaust). Our friends over at Accel found a way to add as much as 10HP and 9TQ to a 2011 and newer Mustang GT or V6 in less than an hour!
