    We roll it off of the trailer for the first time at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida.

    Line her up and make a few passes. The best we can get her to do stock, bone stock is 14.593 @ 95.60 mph with DA around 1800-2500 I cant remember exactly.

    So we broke out the laptop and we threw a base performance tune on her and immediately ran a 14.04 @ 100.15 mph then the track shut done for the night. Hers the pic of the slips.

    Next of course being that we are a large seller of RaceStar Wheels we had to grab a set of the new Bronze Stars and throw them on the car.

    Just to make sure people know its a 3.7L V6 and not a Coyote 5.0 they are getting beat by we also added some badging. Thanks Bryan @ UPR.

    Now that the car was running consistent low 14s and high 13s we need to give her a little more power. So we came up with the Mafia Stage 1 Package for the 3.7L Mustang.

    It consists of the Airaid Modular Intake, aFe Magnum Flow Pro Dry Drop in Air Filter, and Auto Mafia Racing Custom Tune, and if need the SCT or BDX Tuner or HP Tuners nGauge.

    With this simple tube and air filter combined with our custom tune we gained some good power.

    Dyno Sheet was a little disappointing but the gains we made we were happy with. Can you believe this car when cold only made 220 rwhp. I guess the 195,000 have taken a toll on it!

    With this new setup and the wheels and tires install we were able to crack off a 13.70 as our best ET yet with DA still from 1800-2800 and tons of FL heat. The car was now constantly running high 13s.

    Over the next month or so we installed a slurry of parts to the car.
    DSS Aluminum 1 Piece Drive Shaft
    BBK Long Tube Headers
    BBK Off Road X-Pipe

    We also removed the rear seats and installed an Auto Mafia Racing Rear Seat Delete.

    Thanks to UPR for joining the build, we now have TONS more parts to install. But for now, we cleaned her up and removed the decals and applied our own.

    We think it looks much better.

    Nobody is saying they are, but compared to other parts sellers, at least they are actually testing on a Cyclone engine which is relatively unchanged between S197 and S550.

    They did more runs after this and are at 12.93 now I believe too which is impressive on a 190k+ motor with stock suspension and 2.73 gears.

    Time for an Update. We made it to the 12s in worse DA than our 13.1 pass. Its getting faster.
