 Custom 2001 Mustang SVT Cobra. This is an adult owned, never raced, clean title car.  There is almost $85k invested at this point…   I have receipts for most everything and a few spare parts to go with it.

 The car has a 5.1 Liter all aluminum stroker motor in a Teksid block with forged internals that are safe to 8000 rpm. It is currently tuned to 7500 rpm, and with the ATI P1-SC supercharger @ 10psi of boost makes 532 rwhp with a very safe air/fuel ratio. The engine has ported Fox Lake stage-3 aluminum heads, big cams, ported aluminum intake manifold, steel Canton 7-quart roadracing baffled oil pan, Kooks stainless steel longtube headers and Bassani stainless steel X-pipe and cat-back exhaust. The car has an Accusump 3 quart hydraulic oil accumulator with an isolation valve for cold starts and hard driving, for total oil capacity of approximately 11 quarts, as well as an electric water pump. The drivetrain is a McLeod dual disc clutch in a Lakewood scattershield, G-Force 1200hp rated 6-speed T-56  transmission, custom steel driveshaft w. safety loop, Drive Shaft Shop 900hp rated half-shafts, a Torsen differential with Ford Racing 3.73 gears and a Billetflow differential brace.  The car has a full Maximum Motorsports suspension including welded tubular K-member/front sub frame w. remote oil filter kit, coil-overs with adjustable ride height both front and rear, Bilstein shocks/struts with the front struts recently rebuilt by Bilstein, tubular lower control arms, caster/camber plates, bumpsteer adjusters front and rear, polyurethane and aluminum suspension bushings, and chassis braces including welded in subframe connectors, K-member brace and strut tower brace. The car rides on Ford Racing 18" x 9.5" 2000 Cobra R wheels held on with ARP wheel bolts, Michelin PS2 Pilot Sport 275-40ZR18 tires, and has Wilwood 14" 2-piece 6 piston front brakes with Griggs Racing brake cooling ducts. At present, the car has approximately 13K miles on the new All Ford built motor, and approximately 23K miles on the new transmission and clutch. The following new parts were installed in approximately the last 10k miles: steering rack, Flaming River steering shaft, Procharger idler pulley, inner CV joints, alignment. The following new parts were installed in approximately the last 13K miles: Torsen differential, Wilwood 15" 2 piece 6-piston front brakes, Cobra fuel tank/fuel pump, A/C compressor, oil cooler.  There is not a lot left that's still stock on this car. The engine is making 532 rwhp with a very safe air/fuel ratio--which is about 620 hp at the crank. The supercharger currently on it is the one designed for the original factory 4.6L non-supercharged high compression motor, so it doesn't flow nearly as much air as this built engine could use. The supercharger can be rebuilt by ATI and upgraded to D1-SC internals for approximately $1K. With a 15psi pulley and a new dyno tune, this combination should make north of 800 hp, 650 hp at the wheels at least, but I just have not felt the need. The rest of the driveline has been built to take pretty much anything you could throw at it. This car is a blast on the back roads, yet I see as high as 26 mpg on the interstate. I have taken good care of her and the interior is in great condition, with new carpeting and a Ford Racing FR500 steering wheel, as well as an alarm system. The exterior does have a few scratches and chips, but overall the car really looks good. The odometer shows about 109k, but with the gear swap, it actually has right around 96k.  With just about the entire drivetrain, suspension and steering replaced in the last 23k miles, it isn't an issue anyway.  Most of the listed work was done by Jeff at All Ford Performance in Vancouver, WA. Consistently maintained and mechanically very good, all told, there is close to $85K into this project.  Although she's been a great car to have and to drive, changing priorities calls for a sale. I'd like to see her go to a good home, and this is your chance to get a lot of car for the money.

Consumer Reports: Ford Fusion fun but flawed; Mitsubishi i-MiEV slow, chintzy [w/videos]

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 16:31:00 EST

Waiting for a Ford compliment from Consumer Reports these days is like waiting for a low-cost new product from Apple. So we weren't really expecting a glowing review of the 2013 Ford Fusion when CR got its hands on the car. The institute's crew bought three different versions of the Fusion (Hybrid, 1.6-liter EcoBoost and a Titanium with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost) to put through its barrage of tests, and while we aren't too surprised by some of the findings, they're still interesting nonetheless.
CR praises the Fusion for its "eye-catching" design and says that the sportier Titanium trim level is the best-handling midsize sedan they've ever tested, but that's about where the good news ends for Ford. The Fusion Hybrid also posted the best-ever fuel economy CR has recorded in a midsize sedan, but the only problem is that their number was 39 miles per gallon combined - far less than Ford's 47 mpg rating for city, highway and combined. As expected, CR also dinged the Fusion for its MyFord Touch, but some of the other gripes about the car include a cramped cabin and poor fit and finish.
Other Ford products tested this time around include the Focus Electric and C-Max Hybrid. Like the Fusion, CR's observed fuel economy of 37 mpg for the C-Max fell well short of Ford's advertised 47-mpg rating, and both cars were criticized for the use of MyFord Touch. CR notes that the Focus Electric's interior is also cramped, with the battery pack taking up a lot of cargo space.

Tanner Foust tackles 'Ring in SVT Raptor

Sat, 16 Mar 2013 13:01:00 EST

Here's a math problem: if Tanner Foust has a 24 hours to kill in Germany and one blue Ford Raptor, how long will it take him to decide he wants to lap The Nürburgring? Extra credit if you can get your answer precise to the millisecond.
A very truck-like and slidey lap of the 'Ring is exactly what happened when the Ford-sponsored rallycross driver took time off from set-up duties for his 'day job.' Thankfully no one even thought to worry about posting a time, but you can watch some Raptor skid marks getting laid down between the kerbs in the video below.

Ford, Ram in heavy-duty towing spat

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:45:00 EST

Every pickup truck commercial has the brand trying to convince us that its model is the biggest, brawniest vehicle on the block. But Ford and Ram appear ready to really throw down the gauntlet and scrap over the towing figures for their heavy-duty models, and it could potentially end up in court.
The issue revolves around what it means to be best in class. Ford claims that its 2015 F-450 (pictured above) has a max tow rating of 31,200 pounds, compared to 30,000 pounds for the Ram 3500 (right). However, both companies market these heavy haulers as having the top towing in their class. According to Automotive News, Ford is threatening legal action if Ram doesn't back down.
The situation isn't as simple as just comparing the numbers, though. First, the two companies calculate their towing capacities differently. Ram adheres to the SAE J2807 rating, while Ford uses its own internal system. Although, as the company introduces new models, they are certified using the SAE standard. "When an all-new F-Series Super Duty is introduced, it also will use SAE J2807," said Ford to Autoblog in an emailed statement.
