This dyno video is equal parts exciting and saddening as we see M6G member bakerjd (Josh) blow his twin turboed 5.0L engine while hitting 1000 WHP on the dyno. It happened during a dyno session to optimize the tune while upping the turbo boost.

Engine failure is always a real risk when pushing an engine with stock internals to such high power levels, but it’s helpful to the Mustang community when there are owners willing to push the envelope to determine the limits of the stock engine. Watch the video and commentary inside.

The 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show is only a few weeks away and we have our first look at some of the modified Mustangs we can expect to see this year.

Ford teased several 2018 Mustang builds prepared by some of the big names in the aftermarket business including from CGS Motorsports, Bojix Design, Tjin Edition, Galpin Auto Sports and CJ Pony Parts.

Mustang6G will once again be covering SEMA this year, so we’ll be bringing the M6G community many live photos from the show!

Check out the 2018 SEMA Mustang build previews inside.

A recent article from Jalopnik cited an insider source which claimed that Ford was tapping Getrag to build a new 7-speed manual transmission that could make its way to the 2020 Ford Bronco.

Not only is this great news for the next-gen Bronco, but it also opens up the possibility that this new manual transmission — dubbed the MT-88, could very well make its way into the next-generation S650 Mustang.  As we know the S550 currently offers the Getrag MT-82 6-speed manual gearbox.

The MT-88 would no doubt provide a bump to fuel economy and could be a great way to keep the stick shift (and the V8 engine) alive in future iterations of the Mustang.

Steeda has just announced its 775+hp Steeda Q850 StreetFighter, a limited production Mustang which they say has been created to dominate on and off the track.

To that end, the Steeda Q850 Streetfighter [see full specs] is powered by a Whipple 3.0L Supercharger System producing 775+ HP and 630 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph is covered in just 3.1 seconds. To deal with the acceleration, the car sits on Velgen VMB9 Wheels – black  (20” x 9” front, 20” x 10.5” rear) and Nitto NT555 G2 Ultra High Performance Tires.

To help with handling, the Q850 Streetfighter rides on the Steeda G-Trac Suspension System and a host of other suspension and chassis upgrades.

The 12.4″ LCD digital cluster display is an option starting with the 2018 Mustang and it’s allowed customization of Mustang’s interior atmosphere like never before with its 900 different color combinations available.

The left and right gauges are independently configurable and eight different gauges are available for insertion into the cluster’s layout. There are even 10 animations hidden within all of the cluster’s special menus.

With all this personalization available to 2018+ Mustang owners, we’re curious to see how you’ve configured your digital gauge display. See how other owners have configured theirs and come share your setup inside!

The numbers in the title says it all – 1200 HP and 9.743 seconds. That’s how much power M6G member Mike5876’s 2018 GT makes and how fast it’s managed to go in the quarter mile!  Even more impressive is that this was all done on stock internals.

Mike’s 2018 GT features the Hellion GT Street Sleeper Twin Turbo System (base kit with standard turbos). The motor is stock, as is the transmission and converter. The other modifications include a triple pump fuel system and Extreme DI high pressure pump running on E85.

The car was just run at the Bowling Green NRMA finals where it put down a 9.743@152 MPH on 17″ wheels and drag radials. With 20″ HRE wheels and drag radials it managed to still run a 9.841@149.96 MPH! Check out the time slips inside.

We’ve seen a lot of evolutionary design proposals for future iterations of Ford’s pony car, but this rendering makes a case for a revolutionary facelift for the seventh generation S650 Mustang, which we last heard is due for the 2022 model year.

The exaggerated proportions, flattened greenhouse and massive hood and grille certainly put this rendering into the “concept” category, but what it lacks in practicality it definitely makes up for in boldness — making for an ultra aggressive next-gen Mustang muscle car that also borrows some styling features of the Mustang’s main competitors.

Check out this 7th generation S650 Mustang rendering and let us know what you think in the forums.
