I want to introduce everyone to our 2013 Mustang GT that has formally been named Project High Impact. This project got its name from new Ford color Deep Impact Blue. The 2013 Mustang is a Premium model that is fully loaded with Recaro seat option, Track Pack (Brembo brakes, oil cooler and Torsen differential to name a few options) and Track Apps.
Well we know you have been asking for it. You saw some of the initial brake test on Lee’s car and the teaser photos on Facebook. Now that the final testing is done on the track at Texas World Speedway during the Lone Star Roundup, we finally have everything needed to release the install and feedback information. If you have not been following this project, Lee has been on a mission to build the ultimate daily driven road race Fox Body Mustang. Lee Started with Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs, UPR control arms and Tokico shocks and struts in his initial build. Lee knew to build the “ultimate” street/road race Fox, he could not leave the 4 lug stock brakes on the car.
As many of you out there know, owning a Mustang isn’t just about having a car to drive back and forth to work, school or to a car show on a Sunday. All of us here usually can’t keep our hands out of the parts “cookie jar” we call our warehouse. One of our top sales guys, Lee C., has been daily driving his 1989 Mustang LX coupe for a couple of months now, after selling his Lightning, and is ready to take the ole LX coupe to the next level.
Those who keep up with our project cars are acquainted with Project Six Appeal . Justin bought this car roughly a year ago to show that the V6 Mustang is no longer the girl next doors car. We did this successfully by doing various cosmetic and mechanical upgrades that turned the car into a track carving terror on wheels as seen in our Youtube video. To be honest, alot of us were quite surprised with how this car turned out, including myself. I have owned ALOT of cars in the last several years ranging from countless Mustangs to Corvettes and yes, even a BMW(puts on flamesuit!). When I got the several opportunies to drive Project Six Appeal, I was blown away at its balance and all around practicality especially compared to these past cars I have owned. Its a bargain at the pump, a force to be reckoned with at the road course, and very practical and comfortable for my day to day driving. This got the wheels turning in my head. How about I buy Project Six Appeal and make it my own? Yes the car looks awesome, but this was Justins creation. I decided to buy the car and leave it mechanically with what it has already, but show the versatility of these cars by doing some minor cosmetic changes that will completely change this car. Think of it as Dr. Jekyl and Mr Hyde.
If you’ve followed our Ultimate Track and Street Car Build Blog on our 2011 Mustang 5.0L RTR race car, you’ve seen our build and all the products used along the way. One of our favorite parts about this Mustang is the exhaust. We never really covered the installation of the exhaust or even got sound clips of it, mostly due to the fact that we just wanted it done so we could all get our turn behind the wheel!
Now that the car is completely finished up and where we want it, we have a little more time to go back and touch on the exhaust and to get a good sound clip video out to you guys!
