Entries in Mustang (10)
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!
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.
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!
We finally got a chance to take our Vortech Supercharged 1995 Mustang GT to Livernois Motorsports and strap it to their Dynojet dyno. We had no idea what to expect, we just wanted to know where we were starting from. In the end the numbers were a little under what we were hoping for, but it is still saddled with "P" heads.
Check out the video to see the run, and the results.
