VEHICLE STORY

Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it?My 2008 Ford Mustang GT/CS Kenne Bell Supercharged was my third Mustang I have had since I was 18 years old. I had come into some money and I was looking for what would be the next bad bitch I wanted. So I was on the internet ads looking all over to find the right one. I stumbled upon a small dealership that had a GT/CS S197 that was Performance White. I had always wanted a GT/CS just the way it look in the pictures it was love at first glance. Trust me I wanted a 5.0 2014 but at the time they were so expensive. I found it in Glendale,AZ at Frontline Automotive Group. Mike who is the general manager there said he couldn't sell for weeks he though it would be gone. I called him one day after I found her and I gathered up all the cash I had. Grabbed my buddy and said were going to get here whatever it takes. When I saw her I knew she was going to be very special in my life. See Mustangs to me are the essence of the American Spirit. They are dear to my family and to me. It is lineage my grandfather had them, uncles and now me.  Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start, what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? So I bought her and enjoyed her the way she was set up for quite some time eventually. I was able to get the big 2.6L Kenne Bell blower and install it on the Ford Modular 4.6l 3V. Dynoed her and on the street tune she made 475 RWHP and on the Race tune 515 RWHP. After a year and half after that I wanted to do a revamp on the look. So I bought Concept One CS 6.0 Wheels 20x9 Front and 20x10.5 Rear with Nitto N555G2 Tires Front: 265/35ZR20 Rear: 305/30ZR20. Then bought Borla Atak Catback to replace the Flowmaster Super 44'S that were on her. She already had JBA Longtube ceramic headers on her as well as a bassani off-road x pipe. Upgraded to drilled and slotted rotors and ceramic brake pads. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck?Borla Atak Catback, Steeda Stage 2 suspension package, Hurst Competition Short Throw shifter, Exedy Stage 3 Mach 600 Clutch with Exedy Lightweight racing flywheel. How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share?What are you planning next?I had to sell her December of 2016 was one of the hardest days of my life. What’s been the biggest challenge with this build?Finding the money to get her to where I wanted her to be!
