Underdog EcoBoost Mustang vs. ZL1 Camaro and Dodge Demon

October 17th, 2019

Who’d a thunk it? A four-cylinder Ford beating up on a supercharged Camaro and a supercharged HEMI Challenger? This is crossing over into otherworldly territory. It’s flat out spooky. One thing’s for sure; this ain’t your ordinary four-banger. This is the 2018 Ford Mustang “EcoBeast” with a tuned 2.3-liter turbocharged engine. In factory trim, this car is making more horsepower than many (so-called) V8 muscle cars from back in the day. The tiny four-cylinder is capable of making 310hp and 350lb.-ft. of torque right out of the box. Car and Driver magazine has it clocked at a 5.1-second zero-to-sixty and Read More

Mustang Massacre – Whipple GT500 vs. Big Turbo Fox Body

This bad girl is built Ford tough with Chevy stuff. Under the hood is a LS engine with an 88-millimeter (Turbosmart) turbocharger. A TH400 automatic transmission handles shifting duties.

Street Hits – Mustang GT vs. Challenger SRT

September 25th, 2019

Whoa! This guy has got some kind of attitude. Sure, he has a nice car and it has been reasonably modified, but take on an SRT Dodge Challenger in a Mustang GT? The Mustang sounds good but claims only an assortment of bolt-ons. Let’s see what’s up. First, the 2017 Mustang GT (5.0-liter V8). It has been treated to a Roush exhaust system which yields a throaty rumble, indeed. The Kooks exhaust headers add to the sound effects. The intake manifold is a ported unit from a 2018 version of the same car. Cool exterior air is drawn in via Read More

8-Second Mustang ZR1 LS Swap

June 11th, 2019

Is it a waste of a good Corvette engine? Is it a Gen IV Mustang gone rogue? The answer depends on which manufacturer camp you represent. Chevy purists hate it for the former and Ford loyalists despise it as the latter. Now, don’t get it twisted – when I cut myself, tiny little bowties ooze out – but I see this build from a practical standpoint, and it looks pretty sweet. This “power couple” had the Mustang sitting around when a customer totaled their supercharged Corvette ZR1 with an LS9 mill between the fenders. Out came the blue oval cluster Read More

Thirty-Car Roll Racing Bracket

April 10th, 2019

Taking it to the streets of California (Mexico) for this video. Want to know what happens when thirty purpose-built automobiles roll onto the streets for some serious roll racing? This clip answers all your questions. The vehicles are far-flung. There is everything from an all-wheel drive turbo Honda CRV to an LS swapped Mazda Miata on hand – and then it starts getting weird. How about a twin turbo Viper and a 300M with a Kenne Bell (3.6-liter) supercharger? It’s crazy out here! The night begins with a Roush Mustang (ported blower and high-performance exhaust) and a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Read More

Under the hood, the Mustang has a Levin Motorsports prepared 4.6-liter engine with twin turbochargers (air-to-water intercooler) mated to a T-56 manual transmission. The Minion is capable of producing approximately Read More
