2011 Ford Mustang 5.0-liter V8 engine available a la crate

StangNet Built to Cruise 2011 5.0 V8

It’s no secret StangNet was the first recipient of a 2011 5.0-liter V8 crate motor for the Built to Cruise project, but now, any willing Ford fan can lay down a soft sum of $6999 to Ford Racing, and have one of his/her very own!  That’s right, guys & gals, the 2011 Ford Mustang GT power plant can be yours for insertion into any project you see fit.  If it’s one thing we have learned about the Ford Mustang enthusiast community, it’s that they have an eye for a project and a sharp wit when it comes to improvisation.

The Ford Racing crate 5.0 carries part number M-6007-M50, is rated at the same 412 ponies and 390 lb-ft of torque as is found in the 2011 Mustang GT, and weighs in at just 444 pounds.  So…how do you get your paws on one?  Hit up your local Ford dealership–orders placed are expected to ship around August 15, 2010!

OR…

If you aren’t in the mood to drop $7 grand on the motor directly, perhaps you might do some window shopping at Late Model Restoration and put your name in the hat to win one for free!  Click here for more details!

2011 Ford Shelby GT500 nearly sold out

It’s no secret once the 2011 Ford Mustang was promised to return with the legendary 5.0-liter V8 that the car and its many Ford variants would sell like ice cream in the Mojave desert.  So what happens when we  have a Mustang coupe with a V6 pumping out over 300hp and a Mustang GT producing over 400hp?  You wonder just how awesome the 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 had to be.

Well, the 550 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque (10 horsepower increase vs model year 2010) equipped 2011 Ford Shelby GT500 is just that–awesome.  It’s so popular (and much better in all ways) that Ford is going to limit the 5,500 production set of the Shelby GT500 to maintain exclusivity of the car.  This is great for would-be 2011 GT500 owners, but not so great if you happen to be the 5,501st person to place your order.  What’s more daunting is that over 3,300 orders have already been filed to date, leaving under half of the production run up for grabs.

So what do you think about this, guys?  Good move (production limitations) by Ford?  Not so good?  Let us hear it in the comments–in the meantime, check out the Press Release from Ford to get the rest of the scoop.

First 2011 Ford Mustang is turbocharged

Well, we all knew it was just a matter of time.  The aftermarket for the late-model Ford Mustang is one of the most carnivorous we’ve ever seen in any automotive spectrum.  The latest tweak from a set of Mustang modification nuts comes in the form of a turbocharger for the all-new 5.0-liter equipped 2011 Ford Mustang GT.  Utilizing a solid platform from Borg Warner, the Fastlane folks tweaked a 2011 GT with the 5.0 V8 to safely pump out over 530 rwhp and 500 rwtq…on a mere 6 to 7 pounds of boost.  That’s awesome!

2011 Ford Mustang DUB Edition

2011_mustang_DUB_edition

It has begun.  The 2011 Ford Mustang aftermarket looks like it’s going to be just as hot as, if not hotter, than that of the first generation (2005 – 2009 model years) S197 Mustang.  Ford, Roush, and automotive lifestyle magazine DUB have teamed up to spice up their very own 2011 Mustang variant, bringing about some increased attention to the car’s base point.  The car isn’t based up on the new 5.0 Mustang GT; it’s based upon the rev-sexy 3.7-liter V6 Mustang coupe.

2011 Mustang DUB Edition will serve as a kickoff to the many exciting projects Ford has coming down the pike.  Its many upgrades include tires, springs, body paneling, and lots more.  Couple this DUB edition along with the Nelly DUB edition 5.0 we saw just months ago, and you’ve got a great recipe for the DUB Magazine tour, set to traverse the entire country through November.

Keep reading to get all the specifics on the DUB Edition Mustang as well as a few other predicated thoughts from Ford in the press release after the jump.

2011_mustang_promo

Hopefully you didn’t miss it live on your own home theater, but just in case, we’re here to bring the latest 20110 Ford Mustang commercial right back at ya to be played time and time again.  This slick TV spot has got something for everyone: the power hungry, the legendary 5.0 fan, the tech savvy, and most importantly–the Ford fan in all of us.  Take a good, close look at this video clip, as it’s a great product exhibiting one of the best (if not the best) Ford Mustangs to date.  We could have done without the music and had more of the 5.0′s 7,000 rpm roar, quite frankly.  Until we get some good seat time, however, this will have to do.  Check out the video after the jump…
