2007 Ford Mustang GT Whipple S/C install

A project we just took in is this 2007 Ford Mustang GT that the customer is having us install a Whipple supercharger on. We are currently acquiring the rest of the pieces to the build. Here you can see pics of the blower, new spark plugs, and higher flow fuel injectors. Stay tuned for the completion.

Mustang GT tuning

A freshly rebuilt engine in this Mustang was needing some tuning to compensate for the better flowing heads and intake that the factory ECU just can’t compensate for. We ordered and installed a Megasquirt Plug n Play kit and performed the tuning all in house; making this Mustang ready to ride.

Datsun 240Z Repairs

Update: the Z car from our exhuast post a couple weeks back has returned for a new clutch and slave cylinder along with the necessary components. Should be a big difference in engagement for a more positive driving experience.
We had in this neat little 240-Z that is a daily driver as well as a weekend autocross toy. Customer stated it was in need of exhaust repair and replacement of the intake/exhaust gasket.  This is a car that is truly enjoyed and shows you don’t need a big budget for big fun.IMG_0491 IMG_0492

1988 Ford Mustang with Subframe Connectors

Subframe connectors are steel tube reinforcements that are welded to the bottom of the car. They connect the front and rear subframes together. This strengthens the flexible floorpan between the two subframes, and greatly increases the rigidity of the Mustang’s unibody chassis providing a better ride, improved handling, and a longer lifespan for the floor pan as it helps prevent fatigue.

2007 Ford Mustang GT supercharger install and tuning

IMG_0347 IMG_0367 IMG_0368 IMG_0351Updated: Blower is installed, belt is routed, and throttle body with the intake is on. Working on intercooler plumbing and some other odds and ends then it will go across the shop to the dyno to get some serious power out of it.
We have this ’07 Mustang here for a supercharger install and when its completed it will need to be fully retuned. The supercharger looks right at home under there. Check out the series of pictures showing the progress. Will post the final results on our Facebook page when its all done.

Update: The Mustang is just about all buttoned up and ready to go on the dyno for the tuning portion of its visit.

Ford Pinto carb setup

This super clean Pinto only has 39k original miles; and the current owner is the second owner – first being his aunt. But any car needs maintenance; and this one came in to sort out some fuel delivery issues and dialing in the carburetor. IMG_1467 IMG_1468 IMG_1469 IMG_1472

Track arm bar repair and setup

Customer stated the rear end of his Mustang was clunking terribly; upon inspection it was found that the rear track arm bar was disconnected and in need of repair. Our fabricator was able to successfully weld the components back together and get it down the road. IMG_1098 IMG_1099
