2013 Ford Taurus SHO Road Test

Can you drift a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO like Nascar racer Carl Edwards does in the commercial? I tried and couldn't. This press car didn't have the ESC button in the center console to disable the stability management system so try as I might, the car would never get sideways. I did however find out how great this car is at being a world class sedan. Around town and in the canyons, this 4400 pound vehicle feels flat out nimble. It's also pretty fast, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds will get your attention and the immensely capable all wheel drive system, huge brakes and fantastic suspension will keep it. I'll go on record for loving the eco-Boost engine platform. The 3.5L Twin turbo V6 is only mildly laggy at the low end but more than makes up for that once it starts to rev. The practical side is that you could use all 365 horsepower in this car and still manage fuel mileage in the mid 20's and then on the highway settle in at about 30 MPG. Would I own one, heck yes...as long as it had that ESC button in the center console to disable the stability management systems so that I could four wheel drift the tires off the thing.

Super Swampers on a 73 Mustang and How To Measure Wheel Backspace for an Awesome Stance
http://www.totalcontrolproducts.com/gBar.html http://www.wilwood.com/Index.aspx Check it out, New Rims and Tires on the Mustang Project Large Marge! Ok, maybe the Super Swampers might be a bit much but I got them from the Roadkill guys Freiburger and Finnegan after they ran them on the awesome Muscle Truck when they went to the Sand Dunes at Glamis. They do look pretty hilarious on the Mustang! In this video I'll show you how to measure your car to fit the best fitting tires and rims into the wheel wells. So hang in there for some of the techniques I've used in the past to get a good stance on my cars. My dog Pinto makes another appearance in this video as well. Please let me know if it's too much to have her in these. Sometimes I'll lock her out of the garage while I shoot the videos but it's really nice to have her in there with me! There's also a little sneak peak in this video of a really exciting part that will be going onto the Mustang so look for that. Thanks for watching and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE and share this video to help me out! Until next time, Enjoy Your Drive! Jason





Aluminum Heads and Supercharger Install on the Ford Small Block for the Mustang
https://www.holley.com/ We officially have Boost installed on the Mustang engine! In this video I show a How To style installation of the freshly rebuilt Holley Aluminum Heads that I took to Jim Grubbs Motorsports for a complete rework and upgrade... and then mount the Weiand 174 Power Charger to the Holley aluminum intake manifold! - If you want to skip right to the Super Charger install go to 8:15 but the head install is pretty good if you haven't ever done that before. By the end of the video you will get a glimpse of the almost completed front drive system as well. I bought a 150 amp alternator and new A/C pump and will probably use a stock style steering pump for the new Total Control Products rack and pinion steering setup going on the car for now and may need to upgrade to a racing pump later. The only modification to the pulley system was the cut at the bottom of the alternator bracket to get rid of the smog pump since this is going in a pre 1975 vehicle. Stay tuned for future videos for the final dial in on the front drive systems and when we get this thing back in the car for first start up!

Jeep WJ Long Arm Suspension 4" Lift Install from IRO Grand Cherokee
http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/ http://jemfx.com/ This is my new project vehicle, a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with only 100,000 miles on it. The goal is to make a reliable daily driver that would also be fairly capable as an off road rig for as cheap as possible. I sold my truck for $5,000 and bought this thing for $4,000 leaving a little room for improvements right out of the gate. I started with the Iron Rock Offroad 4" lift and some rock sliders. Next I bought some Hankook Dynapro M/T tires size 265/75 R16. This video shows the install of the suspension upgrades and sets up the maiden voyage of the Jeep into the wilds of Death Valley... Stay tuned for part 2 coming soon of the shakedown trip!
