Super Power From 2005 V6 Mustang? AmericanMuscle Shows Us How
Apr 6, 2010
By: All Ford Mustangs News Desk
In 2005, the “economy” Mustang V-6 was rated at a respectable 210 horsepower. Respectable for its day, at least. These days, with the 2011 V-6 putting out a certified 305 horses, the veteran pony might not look so tony. Enter AmericanMuscle’s Dave Kaek, who has teamed up with Swarr Auto to take an 2005 Mustang V-6 from cute to brute. Check out the video series to see how they put the whip to Ford’s horse.
The team has put together a four-video series documenting everything they did on their V-6 project car. In the first installment, Dave Kaek lays down some numbers, pulling a baseline dyno run at Swarr to see how much work they have ahead of them. Then, we get a look at the pile o’ parts the technicians will be stuffing into the Mustang.
Chapter 2 finds our heroes under the hood, and we witness the installation of a new cold air intake, exhaust and a custom tune. The team also starts stylin’ for profilin’ with a set of lowering springs and new wheels and tires.
In the third video, the crew from Swarr Auto brighten up the ’Stang with new headlights, taillights, and and some side marker decals. After that, Dave heads to the home garage for some final styling featuring painted parts from AmericanMuscle.
And finally, we get the payoff in video No. 4, as Dave heads back for one last dyno run (and to add a little something extra). Whatever could it be?
