2009 Shelby GT500 Mustang


Got this Shelby in with some power issues that were traced to the catalytic converters being spent. The car already had a custom cat back exhaust system and since the customer wanted to upgrade to Kooks Long Tube headers; he went ahead and ordered their new “green” high flow catalytic converters. This GT500 can breathe right once again and makes incredible power.



Out with the old manifolds and worn out cats


In with the shiny new Kooks long tubes and “green” catalytic converters.



We can handle your fabrication needs here at Fast specialties! Tube bending, Inter cooler plumbing, turbo manifolds, exhaust, suspension components, you name it, we can make it a reality!

These Fuel cells were modified to include there own pumps, filter and wiring, making them a stand alone fuel system for a secondary fuel source while running high boost. One cell assembly is shown using dual 255 pump assemblies, while the other uses a larger in line pump for higher flow.

Down pipe fabrication is something we do a lot here at Fast, this one is built for a dsm engine with a 2.5″ v-band outlet flange and a recirculating waste gate.

Here are a few more examples of downpipes built to clear tight obstructions. Our downpipes are Tig welded and back purged.

Pre-turbo fab work means custom turbo manifolds. For a lot of engine a commercial manifold is available, but when a one off or custom solution is needed, we build it. Weather made from schedule 10, 40 ,tube, stainless or steel, we got it covered!

On the cold side of the turbo is the inter cooler, again, when a kit is not available, the custom fabrication begins. This includes air cleaners, compressor housing mods, charge piping, bead rolling and boost bracing.

Mandrel bent exhaust work, don’t fall for muffler shop crush bent exhaust, you spent the money to make the power, don’t leave it choked up under the car stuck in a pipe. While fine for normal cars, crush bent piping can ofter loose 50% of its cross section during a bend. You paid for 3″ piping, this means almost 10″ of cross section, not 5″. Leave the crush bent stuff to the daily driver, not the hotrod.

So if you need a part, built, modified, fabbed tweaked or desighned from scratch, we got it covered.

Custom fabricated turbo manifold

A true one-off fabrication; this custom manifold was a labor intensive job but it got done to the standards required. These pictures don’t do this job justice in terms of the planning and involvement to make such a piece. But it shows that it can be done with the right supplies and skills

Fuel line fabrication – carburetor application

The owner of this hot rod wasn’t keen on the black rubber fuel lines that went up to the carb; so our fabricator made some new custom metal lines that not only function well but really help tidy up the appearance under the hood. He also opted for a frame rail mounted fuel filter instead of the clear one bobbing around in the engine compartment.

Track Bar Installation – 03 GT

The Mustang GT that was here for a sway bar and shock upgrade came back for a panhard bar installation as well. Its a suspension link that improves stability in straight lines and cornering; assisting the vehicle to maintain a straight line when launching and helps to stop the tendency to make steering corrections when tracking.

Fox Body Mustang Subframe connectors

An overall stock ’88 GT came in for a few minor upgrades; a one owner car with only 9K original miles! First on the list was subframe connectors; to assist in tightening up the overall feel of the vehicle. Some mild performance mods are planned next; but nothing that would drastically detract from the overall originality of the vehicle.

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
