I bought it in March of 2004 from a listing on www.autotrader.com It was a couple grand under book so I had to jump on it. Honestly I think I could have gotten it for a bit less as the guy accepted my first offer! It was bone stock when I got it with 43,000 miles and since then I've done a thing or two with it.

The only modifications that I didn't do by myself or with the help of a friend was the paint on the mach 1 hood and the mounting of the tires on the black bullitts. Other then that this car has seen a considerable amount of sweat from me.

 

 

  

   

 


For the record, it's not a mach 1   I'm not doing a mach 1 clone, I'm just taking bits and pieces of different mustangs and making it my own \"smile\"


The weather was great so I painted my calipers and washed the car, here they are....
 
 

 

 
 
 
And a photoshoot in Des Moines along with some fun in photoshop!

My modification theme is pretty simple really.. Keep it clean, lean, and very mean. I'm not a big fan of flashy mods but I want it too look sleek and go fast. I'll be working on suspension and styling mods next but will take a bit of a break from that to pay off bills first. I'm having plenty of fun with the blower right now anyway

Anybody looking for piping or rubber elbows should check out this site.

http://www.airflo.com/

It's not all the prettiest stuff but it does the trick. I made my power pipe and inlet elbow for under $200 including the powdercoating. The power pipe alone would cost $225 at least from AFM

I got some times with the blower now!....

12.656 @ 113.61 mph with a crappy 60' time of 1.975

I'm pretty much slicks, some weight reduction, and cooler air from cracking into 11s!

It's tuned and tearing around!

 

I'd post my updated numbers if I still had a scanner.  I pulled 414 rwhp and 384 rwtq in Dallas on the Dallas Mustang dyno




At the line at Cedar Falls Raceway and on the rollers at EJ's Dyno in Omaha, NE 

 

 


Now that was a few bucks worth of tires right there!

 
 

Here are a few pictures from World Ford Challenge 8....

 

This is how we roll!

Here is my custom rear seat delete. It comes out in under 5 minutes when I go to the track

One of my favorite pictures that I took on the way home to see the family. Driving while taking pictures... do not try this at home.

Thanks!

 

Not sure how it's done on there, I had the guy doing the tuning shut off the traction control

 

do you have the Xcal 1 or 2?

GOT RANKED. GREAT CAR.

QUESTION: HOW DID YOU YOU DEACTIVATE YOUR TRACTION CONTROL WITH YOUR XCALIBRATOR? I HAVE ONE AND I WOULD LIKE TO INSTEAD OF USING THE BUTTON ALL THE TIME.
