A true dual exhaust was the hot ticket until enthusiasts started adding H-pipes to change the sound and performance of traditional two-pipe systems. Unfortunately, turbulence in the merge area led tuners questioning how they could eliminate firing order pressure differences between the right and left banks of the exhaust manifolds, and free up more horsepower. The eventual answer to the question was the X-pipe exhaust equalizer system. The X-junction smoothly blends exhaust pulses from the left and right side engine banks to produce a smooth exhaust note, and increase volumetric efficiency of the entire system, resulting in increased power. Dyno testing of Hedman’s system for a 1985 Mustang GT, by a leading Mustang publication, demonstrated an increase of 35.3 Horses and 28.5ft lbs. over the stock, baseline dyno pulls. While the benefits of an X-pipe system are evident after a single test drive or dyno pull, and universal fit X-pipe models may be plentiful and flexible in design, … [Read more...] about Hedman Bolt-On X-pipe Kits for 1986-2007 Ford Mustang
Horsepower 2007 mustang gt
Visitors to the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise on Saturday were treated to the debut of the latest offering from Shelby American: the 2019 Ford Shelby GT. After a brief hiatus, the Shelby GT returns to the market with revised looks and more power from its V-8. Available as a coupe or convertible, the car is based on the 460-horsepower Mustang GT but sports a 5.0-liter V-8 matching the 480 hp of the Mustang Bullitt, with the extra punch courtesy of a Borla exhaust kit. Buyers seeking extra performance can opt for a post-title supercharger upgrade delivering in excess of 700 hp. Shelby also worked with Ford Performance to tailor the suspension for improved handling without sacrificing ride quality, and the custom aero kit and wheel pattern should ensure the vehicle stands out. Interestingly, Shelby is also offering a Shelby GT-H styling pack inspired by the actual 2007 Shelby GT-H, a car Shelby says was the inspiration for the first Shelby GT also launched for 2007. Shelby American will … [Read more...] about 2019 Ford Shelby GT debuts at 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise
The Ford Mustang passed an incredible milestone this week with the 10-millionth one in history having been produced. From the iconic first year cars to the muscular and awesome fastbacks, Cobra Jets, and GTs of the late 1960s to the sad days of the 1970s, the performance revolution beginnings of the 1980s, the growth of the 1990s, and the hardcore escalation of the 2000s into today, the Mustang has been a huge part of American motoring culture. Many of us have owned one. I had mine, a 1999 Cobra with the 305hp naturally aspirated 4.6L DOHC engine. I loved that car and its proclivity to rev to the moon. It was a different experience than I had ever had with respect to the tachometer! The 10-millionth car came out of Michigan’s Flat Rock plant and that’s fitting to us. Henry is smiling somewhere and pony car lovers everywhere have the Mustang, in all of its varied forms to thank for the killer cars of today. Whether you love them or hate them, the Mustang is the only pony car … [Read more...] about Ford Produces The 10-Millionth Mustang – That Is Both Awesome And Insane!
The 10 millionth Mustang Ford has built since the iconic pony car debuted in 1964 rolls off the assembly line today, a Wimbledon White GT convertible with a six-speed manual transmission — identical to the first production Mustang in color, trim and transmission type, although the '64 model only had three speeds instead of the modern six. The cars' V-8s differ, as well: The 2019 Mustang GT's V-8 has 460 horsepower, while the model-year 1964.5 V-8 had 164 when new.Related: 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt First Drive: A Better Car Than a Tribute Let's take a look back at key moments in the Mustang's storied history: 1964: Mustang debuts 1965: Shelby GT350 and fastback body style arrive 1968: "Bullitt" hits theaters, starring a Mustang 390 GT and some guy named ... *checks notes* ...
