Brian Belto • Kern County, CA • 1991 LX Mustang
Brian Belto’s ’91 LX convertible Mustang has been restored from the ground up. Underneath the hood resides a 331 stroker filled with SRP pistons and a custom camshaft, with an Edelbrock RPM II intake and waterpump. Other mods include a 75mm throttle body, a BBK CAI, an MSD ignition, 3.73 gears, and all-new interior. The exterior has been repainted Phalum Grey Twilight, with white pearl paint. Belto tells us his ride cranked out 410 rwhp on the dyno.
Mark and Donna Ritcher • Stafford, VA • 2008 California Special
Mark and Donna Richter are the proud owners of this ’08 California Special Mustang GT. Upgrades include a FRPP supercharger, a MMR built 4.6L engine stroked to a 5.0L, custom Comp blower cams, a GT500 throttle body, an eight-rib belt setup, Pypes long-tube headers, and an X-style mid-pipe, coupled with a Borla exhaust. The engine’s wiring has been tucked away for a clean look, and the interior has been customized with carbon fiber accents.
Jamie Marsh • Lancaster, SC • 1993 LX Mustang
After purchasing this ’93 LX hatchback Mustang a second time, Jamie Marsh isn’t letting it go again. Having started life with an automatic and a rearend fitted with 2.73 gears, it now features a five-speed along with a 3.73 gear set. He installed a polished Roush intake, five-lug spindles, and Pony R wheels. The suspension has been upgraded with Steeda springs, and KYB shocks and struts, and power is increased thanks to a Vortech supercharger. His future plans are to open track the car. We hope you do, Jamie.
Jacob Peterson • Las Vegas, NV • 2006 Mustang GT
Jacob Peterson has been working his way into V-8 territory. After owning a four-cylinder ’92 Fox-body, followed by a ’86 V-6 LX Mustang, he’s finally scored an ’06 Mustang GT. Currently enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, Jacob has slowly been modifying his Stang. For performance, he’s added JBA headers, a BBK H-style mid-pipe, SLP Loudmouth mufflers, and FRPP 4.10 gears. The roof, hood, and trunk have all been vinyl-wrapped in carbon fiber, and he’s also installed a GT500 spoiler. Keep up the good work, Jacob!
