One Bad 2001 Bullitt That Puts Out 550 rwhp
Nasario Birrueta • Fontana, CA • 2001 Bullitt
Nasario Birrueta’s 2001 True Blue Bullitt (No. 4051) was given a complete makeover over the past few years. Powering this blue beast is a 2003 Terminator short-block along with the Trick Flow 2V top-end kit, TFS 60-lb/hr injectors, an Accufab throttle-body, and a Vortech V3si at 11 psi of boost that’s complete with an air-to-air intercooler. For added performance and rumble, a full cat-back JBA exhaust with midlength headers and an off-road H-pipe has been installed. Other performance modifications include a McLeod twin-disc clutch, Ford Racing 3.73 gears, a Baer six-piston big brake kit, a complete Maximum Motorsports suspension, and a tubular K-member. Setting off the exterior are CCW classic three-piece wheels. With everything on the car, Birrueta’s New Edge puts out 550 rwhp. Future upgrades include a water meth injection kit along with a blow-through setup. About 99 percent of the work was done at GTR Performance in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
