Power to the People.
Several years ago SVTP Vendor American Muscle took the plunge and got in deep with their original content video production, and I have to say that the production value and content is top notch. Take the latest episode of their Hot Lab series for example. Stephanie Wood, an AM staffer, walks you through the installation of a Vortech V-3 Si-Trim supercharger kit on an S-197 Mustang GT.

The episode is capped off with some dyno runs and a trip to the drag strip for some real world results.

And when it comes to Mustang racing it’s tough to beat the excitement of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge series.
