Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords
2008 Mustang GT S197 - First Impressions
Procharger Uses This Slick S197 To Debut Its High-Output Supercharger System.
With all the new additions to the body, the build team was ready to send the Stang out for a few fresh coats of paint. Even though the Grabber Orange grabs your attention, it wasn't enough. The car was sent to Shiney Car Care in Leavenworth, Kansas, where the new body parts were coated in the matching orange hue before the car was masked off and prepped for some two-tone treatment. When the ride broke out of the joint, it was returned to ProCharger and readied for the show.
The finishing touches came in the interior. UPR billet accent pieces fill the interior and enhance the already beautiful stock interior. Auto Meter gauges help keep tabs on the happenings under the hood, and the air ride controller was installed in the center console to keep the ride height in check.
Although ProCharger built its Mustang as a display item for the 2007 SEMA show, it has served as a great promotional tool since then. "The car is a great driveable showcase for ProCharger," explains Jeff Lacina, Marketing Director for ProCharger. "It also allows us (ProCharger) to showcase the great products from all of the other companies with parts on the car.
"The car was built and delivered to SEMA in less than four weeks, and really became a labor of love for everyone involved."
