We wanted to send Project Six Appeal off with a blog to look back at great times we had with Project Six Appeal. Check out the pictures and videos in the blog.
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 been following along on our latest project build of a 2011 Mustang V6, you have seen all the suspension and appearance mods that we have done. We started off with a full Ford Racing Handling Packand Ford Racing Brembo Front Brake Upgrade, along with a new set of Boss 302 Laguna Seca Wheelswrapped in Nitto NT555′s. Now that we made the Mustang handle like we wanted and stop on a dime, it’s time to take a look at the performance mods we made to the car to help get us around the track a little faster! Now, there aren’t just a ton of performance parts out there for the new 3.7L V6 but we added everything we could get our hands on!
As some of our faithful blog readers have been following our recent 2011 Mustang V6 Blogs, you may have picked up on the fact that we recently aquiried a new 2011 Mustang 3.7L V6. We have named it Project: Six Appeal. We started with a teaser blog on the build up and this blog with show the first build day we had at the MCA Wild West Pony Show. Day one consisted of a complete tear down of the New 2011 Mustang V6 and then the installation of a Ford Racing Handling Pack, Ford Racing Brembo Front Brake Upgrade, Ford Racing Adjustable Rear Panhard Bar, SVE Heavy Duty Rear Lower Control Arms, Magnaflow Axle Back Kit, GT500 Rear Valance and a set of Ford Racing 19X9″ Boss 302 Laguna Seca Wheels wrapped in 275/35/19 Nitto NT555′s. You may say that seems like a lot of work in one day, but follow the blog and watch just how easy it is to transform a new 2011 Mustang V6 from stock to shock in a days work……
As some of you know all of us Mustang nuts around here have caught a bit of V6 Mustang fever over the past couple of months. If you have followed our blogs so far, you’ve seen our rental 2011 Ford Mustang V6 3.7L on the track at Texas World Speedway, our install blogs on the BBK Cold Air Intake, our Dynolicious Blog all pushing the new Mustang V6 platform as far as we could and also the introduction to our latest project “Six Appeal”. I know some of you out there are still wondering why in the world we would choose a 2011 Mustang V6 as our new project car. Simple answer to that question, the cars are a blast to drive, they present an awesome 305HP 3.7L V6, the well known 8.8″ rear end with a traction-lok differential and dual exhaust with a true x-pipe from the factory! Not to mention they still have great looks and awesome fuel mileage to boot.
