STAGE 1: Fox Body Mustang Project Car by AmericanMuscle.com
Our 93 GT convertible is in rough shape! Ready to watch us overhaul it? http://www.americanmuscle.com/1993-gt-foxbody-project-car.html
Say hello to our new Project Car, our 1993 Mustang GT Convertible! We're bringing this 'vert back from neglect and transforming it into the car we always wished Ford would build; a 93 Cobra Convertible. Now, we wouldn't just throw Cobra badges on any Mustang, so you'll have to follow along the entire series of Stages to see what we have up our sleeves!
For the first stage of our build, this GT was in serious need of a tune-up! We wanted to get our GT running right, before we started working on the rest of the overhaul. The parts we installed for Stage 1 included:

In Stage 4, we cranked up the power on our 1993 Ford Mustang GT Convertible known as

IRS Install in a fox-body Mustang
This video is about the installation of a 2003 SVT Cobra's independent rear
suspension into a 1991 Mustang LX. Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine
followed the process and wrote up a tech article for their June 2013
issue...titled, "Declaration of Independence".
My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
My son has been looking for a car for a while now. He wanted something
that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third
generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a
bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and
modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a
1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already
added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and
coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe
connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great
base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

Project 240SX Le Drift Car - Ep. 1 | Getting Started
Basically, this video starts the second day after I bought the car. I
bought it as you see in the video with a welded diff, coilovers, mismatched
wheels and some other "goodies". The goal is to drift and build the car.
If the video seems a bit tedious it's because I wanted to include
everything I did to the car so that way people understand how much work
actually goes into these cars. Not like those videos that are 10 minutes
long and do a whole show car build and make everything seem like a piece of
cake and done over night.
Let me know what you think in the comments below :)

Stage 1: 2012 Mustang GT Project Blackout by AmericanMuscle.com
In Stage 1 of the AmericanMuscle.com 2012 Mustang GT Project Car build, we take
a stock 2012 5.0L Mustang
with an MT82 Manual transmission and get a baseline at the track, on the Dyno and on the street.
This car comes from the factory with over 400 horsepower. It already had
enough to rocket us down the track in 13.29 seconds, with terrible track
prep, stock all-season tires at stock pressure, right off of the showroom
floor! We know that with the right weather, track prep and the right
driver, this car could go 13.0 in stock form with stock tires and pressure
- right off of the showroom floor as we did. We wanted a challenge! So,
we used that as our baseline.
After that, we were ready to drop in some new Performance and Styling mods.
We added the following:
JLT Performance Carbon Fiber CAI and Bama Performance Custom Tuner -
JLT Performance Oil Separator - http://muscle.am/ynUarw
Classic Design Concepts (CDC) Matte Black Chin Spoiler -
Black Retro Billet Grilles - http://muscle.am/x8yJka
Once these were added, we strapped Project Blackout back down to our
224xLC to see what the horsepower and torque gains
were after adding a Bama Performance custom tune. The Dyno results? With peak gains
of 31 horsepower
and gains throughout the curve of 55 horsepower and 40 torque at
around 7000 RPM, we were happy with the results!
We headed back to Cecil County Dragway and clicked off a 12.45 pass on the
same stock wheels and all-season tires with stock tire pressure! Not too
shabby, considering the track conditions and weather weren't much better!
Stay tuned for Stage 2 as we build the ultimate street Mustang out of this 2012 Mustang GT 5.0L 4V!
