RRS has bolstered their product line with two new items; a right hand drive chrome finished tilt collapsible steering column and a 5.4 Modular V8 Engine Conversion kit. However the tilt column is what excites me most. It’s yet another product, joining the dash kit and bezels, in their right hand drive line of products. […]

JLT Performance Cold Air intake Install

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

JLT Carbon Fiber IntakeFord’s Shelby GT500 is a monster of a machine.  Unfortunately, the Federal Government wants to keep the roar of that beast quiet so Ford has to meet what are called “drive-by noise requirements.”  To that end the GT500’s supercharger has a muffler on it to help keep the car’s distinctive supercharger more subdued.  Just like restrictive mufflers on the exhaust, this piece robs horsepower.  We found out that removing this government mandated restriction freed up as much as 22 horsepower!

Enter JLT Performance ( who make a variety of cold air induction kits and other accessories.  They have the cure for the GT500’s quiet under hood demeanor, of course they also make intakes for virtually every other kind of Mustang.  We installed the JLT 2010 – 2011 GT500 Carbon Fiber Cold Air Kit part number: CFBCAI-GT500-10 on our 2011 GT500 project car.


We all love a good burnout, especially from a nice Eleanor example. Today I stumbled across this short video of one Eleanor owner lighting it up in a public carpark in broad daylight. Seems he’s also a bit of a Michael Jackson fan. Check it out after the jump.

2011 Ford Mustang Full Length Headers

Friday, September 10th, 2010

The R&D team at BBK have announced the introduction of an all-new line of performance exhaust products for the hot new 2011 Mustang 5.0 GT and V6 models.
BBK R&D developed these headers with one thing in mind – Getting even more horsepower and torque out of the all new, 2011 5.0 liter Mustang that is already putting out nearly twice the horsepower of its 5.0 predecessor!

This all new rugged BBK header design is constructed with 1-3/4” CNC Mandrel-Bent tubing and solid 3/8” laser cut exhaust flanges.

For GT owners, BBK offers a direct-fit, tuned-length 1-3/4” header system, a direct-fit 2-3/4″ after-cat x-pipe, as well as 1-3/4″ full-length headers and matching high-flow x-pipes. Typical horsepower gains are 14-34 rear wheel horsepower on otherwise stock GT models.

For V6 owners, a new full-length header system with matching x-pipe is available that initial testing shows will be good for up to 25 hp and 25 ft-lbs of torque. BBK products are available through Brothers Performance.
