First 2010 Mustang
in the 10's
2010 has already been a great model year for the auto industry and with the revamped Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and the Chevrolet Camaro - but pony wars have began all over again. Most all of the high end shops have been biting at the bit to be the first to do this and the first to do that with all the new models. Livernois Motorsports is one of those shops that specializes in going from mild to wild with their creations and from the looks of things, they have been hard at it with two 2010 Mustang GT’s.

A stock appearing car is the first thing that everyone looks at, and Livernois opted for Cobra Jet wheels in the front and rear trimmed out with Goodyear rubber for a subtle change. Providing the motivation is a Ford Racing’s 4.6L Aluminator SOHC model topped off with Whipple Supercharger’s 500HP model.
Ford Racing also supplied hot rod camshafts and three valve long-tube headers. The transmission will likely take plenty of abuse and that is why they prepared a custom C4 with a trans-brake. A Neal Chance torque converter is used in conjunction with TCI’s Streetfighter shifter and a custom one piece driveshaft.
Proper safety precautions have been taken as well with a Team Z custom six point roll bar and RJS harnesses. Suspension modifications were also made to handle all the power from the supercharger. Tubular control arms and an anti roll bar are used with pieces from QA1. All of these modifications have allowed the Livernois Motorsports team to gain the title as first 2010 Mustang in the 10’s. 10.88@125mph to be exact.
Found this on stangtv looking for ideas on a drag car and thought I should share.
