Our 2015 Mustang GT made the Quick 16 on stock suspension and our VMP GEN II Stage 3 kit We knew it was quick because we'd already gone 9's in it! Finally, our 2015 Mustang EgoBoost Project clipped off an [email protected] with our VMP/FFtec big turbo kit. What's Next? Look for Team VMP at the track, shows and more with our VMP Performance Mobile DynoJet dyno, presented by HP Tuners.

The time when everyone north of the Mason-Dixon line raises the garage door and fires up their monster for the first time in months. Time to hit the streets, the cruise-ins and the tracks. But most importantly, it's time to check the following critical items for your safety and the performance of your car: 1. Look around. Critters look for places to hide and/or stay warm in winter. Check everything visible, then check your intakes/inlets and exhaust openings. Check the wheel wells. Things nest there, too. 2. Overfill your tires by 5 psi over the label value for the first 100 miles or so, particularly if they've been sitting on the ground. 3. Pass that gas. Get rid of whatever fuel remains in your tank from last fall, particularly if it has any Sta-Bil in it. DO NOT go wide open throttle on old gas. 4. Change your oil. Yes, even if you just did it 1,000 miles and a few months ago. It's probably been subjected to temperature extremes. 5. For supercharged cars, pay particular attention to your fluid reservoir after the car has been running a while. We've seen instances of cars being filled with nothing but water and the manifold/intercooler freezing over the winter. If your fluid drops or you see unusually high downstream temps, be suspect of a cracked manifold/intercooler. After the car has risen to operating temps, get out, pop the hood and look everything over again. Look under the car as well for any leaks. 6. Learn to drive (again). It's been a while since you've driven anything but the Family Truckster, so as you settle into your fire breathing muscle car, make sure and tighten the 'nut behind the wheel'. That means take it easy, drive cautiously and refresh yourself with the hand/eye/muscle memory that all goes into performance driving. Speaking of the Garage.... You know how it goes. You're ready to spend your weekend modding your car. All the parts are there, your buddies have surrounded you in their lawn chairs and suddenly you have a question for us. While we're not "open" on the weekends (or we're traveling), we do get emails 24/7. Be specific about what you need and include things like your car details, an order number if you have one and of course contact info. The best way to reach us is on the Customer Support Tab on our website. Here's a handy link for you to bookmark. At the bottom of our home page you'll find the VMP Garage where you'll find written guides and tips for installation of many of our items. VMP VIP Congratulations to William Chae of Atlanta. William is a small business owner and both a muscle car and motorcycle enthusiast. He had a VMP GEN II TVS kit installed on his first ever American car, his 2013 Mustang GT, last fall. It's his daily driver and a true sleeper at 617rwhp! To keep things cool, William employs the VMP Triple Pass/Dual Fan heat exchanger. As our VMP VIP, William scores a $100 gift certificate to our website. You can be our next VIP! Just email a couple of pictures of your car (stuff showing VMP on it helps...a lot) and a brief bio to BJ McCarty That's it for this edition of the VMP Tuning Times.
