LateModelRestoration fuel system for 87-97 Ford Mustang

It’s no secret that the Ford Mustang was bred to produce power and performance.  But what commonly gets overlooked is the importance of pristine and reliable fuel delivery from the tank to the engine bay.  All too often, Mustang enthusiasts bitten by the infamous “mod bug” find themselves slapping on bolt-ons and other aftermarket pieces, expecting ginormous gains in power…but neglecting the most critical piece to the combustion process: fuel supply.

So what does a Mustang owner do when the time comes to either replace (due to fault) or upgrade (due to power demand) existing fuel components?  They hit up the aftermarket for parts, tech advice, and satisfactory service from their suppliers of choice.  In this case, LateModelRestoration is the source to chase down for replacing your 1987 through 1997 Mustang fuel system.  They’ve got all the parts, hardware, and technical expertise to get you comfortably set up with exactly what you set out to accomplish.

Don’t just take our word for it–head over to LateModelResto yourself and see just what they have to offer to get you set up properly!

2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Wide Body

If you didn’t already get a chance to catch it at the 2013 North American International Auto Show, then here is an opportunity to get as much of the 850 horsepower 2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake “Wide Body” as you can handle.  This venomous beast starts with the already crazy-powerful stock 2013 GT500 (662hp, anyone?) and ups the ante to a 50-state-legal 850hp…on 91-octane fuel.  Add to it the new “Wide Body” option to help its performance as well as appearance, and you’re beholding what’s likely the best Shelby Mustang, to date.

The 13″ rear and 10″ front wheels help give the 2013 Shelby GT500 “Wide Body” its excessively aggressive raked look, as a true throwback to muscle cars of the past. “The optional wide body package isn’t just a cosmetic change, it now gives the Super Snake much more traction and makes it easy to exploit the Shelby’s potential right past the competition.” said Gary Davis, vice president of production at Shelby American.

What’s more, aside from insane amounts of Mustang muscle, is prospective buyers can select from a few choice hues: Satin Black, Gloss White, Silver, Blue and Red stripes.  Additionally, and for the first time, wheel options include a rear-only or front and rear “wide body” packages.

StangNet’s Project 86 Ford Mustang begins

It’s the New Year and it’s high-time for a new project!  Obviously, my passion for Mustangs run deep.  When I was sixteen, I had just returned from living overseas and had zero experience with Mustangs.  I remember going for a ride in an ’86 GT with my older second cousin and my grandmother. From that point on I was enamored with Mustangs.  Twenty-six years later, here we are and here is THAT CAR! — the original inspiration.  I picked up the ’86 GT from my cousin last summer who has owned it since it was new, and we here at StangNet have been preparing for a healthy restoration.  This car is solid and completely original, including the struts, shocks, brakes, clutch and even the Marcel fog light covers.

She runs decent enough and currently and looks great from 20 feet, so…  the StangNet crew has decided instead of breaking her completely down and going ground up restoration, we want to work it out in phases.  To start, we plan to restore the interior as it is entirely worse for the wear.  Once we do that, we’ll fix the brakes, get the A/C running, and just drive and enjoy this clean FOX.  As time progresses, we will sort out the body, suspension, and engine.

Once again we have partnered with Late Model Restoration and TMI Interiors to help us with the project.  The interior is the famous Canyon Red and we plan to keep this car as original in form and looks as we can.  Timing is everything and Late Model Restoration just released their latest master catalog which is helping greatly in securing the needed restoration parts.  We found ourselves going between the catalog and their website tracking down the parts needed.  Another benefit is their new video channel detailing the installation and restoring of FOX parts. We have a good bit of experience working on FOX Mustangs, much like on our BTC Project, but not being as familiar with the 4 eyed 86 GT, the Late Model Resto videos help sort out what parts are best to replace and also how to do get it done.

We plan to keep this post updated as we progress with details, a running parts list and before and after images.

CDC iLight bar for 2005 – 2013 Ford Mustang convertible

This iLightbar is made from steel tubing, comes with all the brackets & hardware required to perfect mate to the Mustang’s B-pillars, and is wrapped with quality grained vinyl to match the interior finish.  CDC also offers the iLightBar for the Ford Mustang convertible in 4 color/style options:  Charcoal, Dove Gray, Camel, and Carbon Fiber.

Steeda Boss 302 Laguna Seca Ford Mustang

While the last of the reborn Boss 302 Ford Mustang units are rolling out (as outlined prior by Ford), the aftermarket players are getting their creative paws all over the feast’s remains..and truly making the most of it.  Steeda Autosports is takes no exception in taking on a Boss 302 Laguna Seca and making it have  a little more of “more”.  Back at the 2012 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Steeda debuted their line of Steeda serialized vehicles, one of which being the car you see here–the Steeda Certified Boss 302 Laguna Seca Ford Mustang

It is no secret this Boss flavored Mustang is one of the best handling, best looking, and plenty-powerful cars on the track, as well as the street.  If you still haven’t gotten a drive, or even a ride in, seriously make it a resolution for 2013.  We rode in the Boss 302 and the Boss 302 Laguna Seca last summer, and it was one of the most refined and exhilarating trips through the track twisties I think we have ever had.

So what did Steeda do to something that is already impressive enough as it is?  Plenty–keep reading to find out!
