How I Chose My Mustang:
I first had my eyes set on getting a 1991 5.0 Mustang. I really wanted to get a convertible, and cruise around town having a nice mustang to show off, but obviously plans changed for the best! Although many people may look at a V6 and turn the other cheek, I saw much more potential in fixing up a V6, than a V8 Mustang. I was looking around for a mustang, when I found a deal in the Recycler Classifieds. I went to take a look at this mustang and fell in love with it. That same day I took it home, bone stock, to show it off to everyone. Just being able to be a part of the Mustang family gave me a great feeling of honor, but I had to beef up my "6 banger" just a bit more to keep up with the big V8 guys.

How I Transformed My Mustang:
I have now owned my mustang for a bit over 6 years and it has been my project building the engine, fixing the exterior, getting sponsors, and through each step of the way their have been heartaches and headaches, but I wouldn't change any minute of it for the world. From each step you learn, it is always a learning process when you own a Ford Mustang, V6 or V8.

When I first purchased my Mustang in 1999, I really did not have an idea as to how I could modify it and just loved it the way it was a 1995 FORD MUSTANG. I was then very curious as to how I could fix up my mustang to look just a bit better than stock. Although I told the people around me, "All I want is 5 modifications for my car and I will be done," we have all come to realize that is now FAR from the truth. Little by little I started researching the capabilities of the Ford Mustang. I started visiting online messageboards asking technical questions and learning on my year mustang. Such websites as,, and have been websites that I have greatly benefited from and that I can only truly thank. It is thanks to those websites that I gained all the knowledge of my Mustang and was able to transform it to what it is today, a street ripping supercharged V6 mustang.
