Ford Racing And Roush Supercharge The 2015 Mustang

A few weeks back Ford Racing put out a video where they took a naturaly asperated '15 Mustang, an EcoBoost Mustang, and a V8 with a Supercharger to Milan Dragway to show off the aftermarket parts and how quick they were.

Now we know what Supercharger was under the hood of the 2015 Mustang that went 10.97 was this one co-developed and marketed by Roush and Ford Racing.  According to the video it makes 600 horsepower.

Our guess is that this is on a VERY concervitive tune up and more power can be had on pump gas, and when you switch it up to E85, we are guessing 750hp will be easily achived.

Note to Ford, why ISN'T the V8 or the EcoBoost Mustang Flex Fuel capeable.  Who DOESN'T likw 105 octane fuel out of the pump for 30¢ less than 87!

Our 1995 Ford Mustang GT Out Of Hibernation 

After 160 days, or more sitting in the garage from the worst winter in Michigan in over 100 years, we fired up the Mustang today for the first time in 2014!
Next up we need to head to the store get some oil and a new filter, give it a bath, and then we can take it for it's first drive of the year.
Can't tell you what a big smile it put on our face to fire this up today!

Reviewed: 2013 Ford Mustang GT

Not as often as we'd like we get to test and spend time with cars we'd buy with our own money, this happens to be one of those times. We got to spend a week with the 2013 Mustang GT and the contrast in how far this car has come from the 95 Mustang GT that we own is remarkable.

How good is this GT? Good enough we might just buy one with our own cash!

Reviewed: 2013 Ford Mustang V6

If you've followed this blog for any time, you know that we are huge Mustang fans.  We've owned in the past an 83 GT, a 92 LX 5.0 Notchback and our current Supercharged 95GT.  What we wanted to know was is this modern V6 Mustang something close to what the 5.0 LX was back in the day, or is it just a secretary's car?

Lets dive in and take a look!  Also make sure that you check out our full gallery of pictures.

Blame California: Why You Can't Have The TracKey For Your BOSS 302

For many people who have bought the BOSS 302 Mustang, they have been wondering when they would receive their TracKey.  It is the magic red key, that changes 200 parameters in the cars systems to provide maximum performance.  It is "For Off Road Purposes Only", but yet CARB, the California Air Resources Board, has not signed off on it.  Ford can not guarentee that the TracKey does not affect emissions, the engine's durability or mess with on-board computer diagnostics.

Given how well California's government works, it may never happen, and once again, the People's Republic of Kaliforna fowls it up for the rest of us.  In a responce someone made this brilliant video which plays on the meme of changing the subtitles to a particular scene in the movie "Downfall"

Have a look and be prepared to be in tears with laughter!
