Build: Horsepower is in the Forecast

Happy Accident

Sometimes the path reveals itself.

By SID297

You know, I love it when someone asks how much you have in your build and you can simply reply with “A lot.”  That’s exactly the exchange that occurred in SVTP Member Weather Man’s (Brian) S-197 build thread.  It all started with a deal that was too good to pass up.   Brian happened upon an engine for the right price in the SVTP Market Section and just had to pick it up.  His plans only extended as far as placing it on an engine stand to wait for some project off in the distant future.  Well that’s just not how things turned out.

Leaked – The Revised 2018 Mustang

Classic Touch

Adding old-school style to your 6R80 shifter.

By SID297

The shift lever on an automatic Stang is an often forgotten piece of interior equipment.  I can count on one hand how many non-racecars a year I see with an aftermarket shift on an auto trans.  Hurst looked at that dearth in the market and saw an opportunity.  They have developed a dress-up replacement for the stock auto shift lever for the 2015-2017 6R60 equipped Mustangs in the form of their classically styled pistol grip handler.

Project Crowdmower: Ford Chassis, Nissan Trans, And Chevy Engine

Mass Hysteria

Soon to be leaving a car show near you.

By SID297

You wanna turn some heads or make some traditionalists lose their minds?  Well there’s few better ways to do that than install a Chevy LS-Motor into your Mustang.  That’s exactly what SVTP Member laextreme5 (“Cody”) is doing with his New-Edge 2002 Ford Mustang GT, but he’s taking things one step further.  He’s also installing a CD009 transmission from a 2006+ Nissan 350Z.  Say what?
