Feed the urge for automotive adrenaline
If you want to add power and menacing sound to your modular engine, check out Lunati's Voodoo cams for 4.6 and 5.4 engines. Lunati offers over 30 different cam profiles for SOHC and DOHC mod motors, ranging from street performance to all-out-race Mustangs. The Voodoo cams are engineered to deliver maximum power, as well as complement the latest aftermarket aluminum cylinder heads, intake manifolds, headers, and ignition system upgrades. The Voodoo line covers cam profiles designed for power-adder combinations featuring a supercharger, turbocharger, or nitrous oxide.
Mustang enthusiasts run through tires like normal people run through toilet paper. If it's your Mustang's turn for new treads, check out Yokohama's new Advan Sport V105 and Advan Neova AD08 R offerings. These are the latest additions to Yokohama's Advan line of ultra high-performance tires. Both the Sport V105 and the Neova AD08 R feature race-inspired engineering and design, as well as innovative new compounds designed to improve wet and dry traction. Both tires were designed using Yokohama's orange-oil technology to enhance traction and provide a comfortable, quiet ride.
If you were putting together your dream garage, this is one machine you'd want to put in it. It's Sunnen Products Company's SV-20 automotive honing machine. As you can see, it's a rather large machine, and it costs a little more than $200. Therefore, it's aimed at race shops, production rebuilders, and fleet repair facilities handling automotive blocks, cylinder liners, off-road machinery, and motorcycle/ATV engines. The SV-20 honing system combines Sunnen's latest linear servo-stroking technology with the power and capacity to drive multi-stone diamond tools for OEM-quality bore geometry on the automotive blocks, cylinder liners, and similar large parts.
You can't always pick the spot to work on your Mustang, and there's not a hose at every corner, either. Thankfully, the Tub O'Towels is here to clean things up. The Tub O'Towels are designed to knock out tough grime and grease in the garage or at the track. Packed with cleaning muscle, and conveniently sized to fit in a toolbox or glove compartment, Tub O'Towels is available at larger retailers across the U.S. and Canada. The towels feature nine powerful cleaning ingredients, durable fiber-weave technology, and twice the cleaning surface of comparable wipes. They're designed to easily handle oil, grease, chemical stains, and other tough soils.
If you have a blow-through carburetor setup on your power adder 'Stang, check out Demon Carburetion's new Mighty Demon offerings (from $655). For combinations operating with up to 18 pounds of boost, the Mighty Demon is available in 650-, 750-, and 850-cfm increments. To increase the vacuum signal to the carburetor under boost and to enrich the calibration, these carburetors are equipped with annular boost venturi, large screw-in power-valve channel restrictors in the metering blocks, and 0.130-inch needle-and-seat valves in the fuel bowls. These new calibrations are said to hold a flat fuel curve, and sustain constant brake-specific fuel consumption and air/fuel ratios, even at high rpm.
Room to Grow
When it comes to the latest Mustang, many aftermarket superchargers need a little extra room under the hood. With Revelare Design's new Rev 1 hood, not only will you get that extra room, but you'll get a cool look to boot. The Rev 1 hood retains the factory hood vents to help reduce underhood temperatures and enhance the styling of '13-'14 Mustangs and '10-'14 Shelby GT500s. Plus, the hood features two openings at the back of the cowl to allow hot air to escape the engine compartment. The Rev 1 hood features a 2-inch cowl that allows that extra room in the engine bay. The hood arrives to you ready to paint with a finished underside, making it easy to color-match it to your Mustang's existing color.
