2013 Ford Mustang V6 review: walk-around, start-up, & engine rev

Gotta love those sequential rear turn signals!!! Here's my review of the 2013 Ford Mustang. I did this at my old job at a car rental agency since I don't yet own a Mustang, though I have sought financing options for a 2013 GT500, not this V6 Mustang. This is still a very nice car, but just not enough horsepower for me ;) This 2013 Mustang has an aluminum block V6 engine mated to a Getrag-Ford MT82 6-speed automatic transmission, though a 6-speed manual is also available. Electric power steering replaces the conventional pre-2011 hydraulic version. The new 3.7 L (3.72 L or 227 cu. in.) aluminum block V6 engine shaves 40 lb (18 kg) from the outgoing, pre-2011 model year version. With 24 valves and Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (TiVCT), it produced 305 hp (227 kW) and 280 lb·ft (380 N·m) of torque.V6 remains rated at 305 hp (227 kW) and 280 lb·ft (380 N·m). HID headlights are now standard on all models. Enjoy! Recorded with a Canon PowerShot SX40

2011 Mustang V6 3.7L BBK Long Tube Headers and Off Road X-Pipe
Just installed the BBK Long Tube Headers and BBK Off Road X-Pipe. These are the mods that I had before the install: C&L Cold Air Intake, Bama 93 Custom Tune, Roush Axle Back Exhaust. The install is very easy however the only issue I came across was the fact that BBK sent me the wrong O2 Sensor Extensions. They told me that no one makes them yet and I also found in the forums people that were complaining about the same thing. The fix they suggested was to solder an extension that is exactly what I did and it worked perfectly. This setup is EXTREMELY loud and I think the Roush has alot to do with it. It was already a little drony at 3000RPM before the LTs and now its even more. I am going to get a Dyno with this setup and then im going to slap on the stock Exhaust to see how it sounds. I will post videos for those 2 things for sure. I also just received the Bama Custom Tune that took the long tube headers into account and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Highly recommend BBK and OR X-Pipe with the Bama Tune by American Muscle...
