Stage 2 of our 2012 Mustang GT Build: Project Blackout!




For Stage 2 of the AmericanMuscle.com 2012 Mustang GT Project Car build, we wanted Project Blackout to really start dominating as a street car. We decided it was time to kick it up a notch on this car a little and drop in more performance mods to get some horsepower crankin’! We’re getting this car ready for SERIOUS horsepower!

For some fun power, sound and even driveability, we installed…

Hurst Billet Plus 2 Short Throw Shifter
Pypes 409 Stainless Steel X-Pipe
Pypes Pype-Bomb Super System Catback Exhaust System
Accel Super Coil On Plug Kit (Coils / COP’s)

Once these were added, we strapped Project Blackout back down to our in-house Dynojet 224xLC to see what the horsepower and torque gains were. The dyno results? With peak gains of 10 horsepower and gains throughout the curve of 16 horsepower and 27 torque from 3000-6500 RPM, we were happy with the results!

To really help understand why we’re calling this project “Blackout”, we installed some stealth appearance mods and a set of AmericanMuscle Charcoal AMR Wheels and tires to help up hook up at the track! Check out what we added:

Smoked Mustang Side Marker Lights
Smoked Mustang Tail Light Tint
Smoked Mustang Third Brake Light Tint
Smoked Mustang Quarter Marker Light Tint
MMD Mustang Rear Decklid Panel
Staggered 19″ Charcoal AMR Wheels & Tires Kit

Now that we were looking more like “Blackout” should, we headed back to Cecil County Dragway and clicked off a 12.37 pass with our new mods! That’s about a 10th of a second gained with some better rubber on bigger wheels/tires (stock were 18″) and a little more horsepower from our friends at Pypes and Accel. Not too shabby, considering the [I]track conditions and weather weren’t any better than Stage 1!

Project Blackout is looking pretty good, but stay tuned for Stage 3 of our build! What do you think should be our next mods?

Comment below and tell us what you think!

I may only be speaking for my self but do everything your average person can afford. I mean suspension and basic bolt on's before then the final stage go all out like every owner wants to do.

sooo ur sayn everyone cant afford the 6500 supercharger...lol. i know wut u mean though. they always do the "unlimited" budget build on tv that noone can even remotely afford to do.

most of the ppl that can afford the stuff arent boltn the shyte on themselves... so the show just pisses u off.. or try to graciously live vicariously through others that r in a higher tax bracket

I would say that opinions would vary wildly as to what "an average person" is and "what they can afford." Let's be honest with ourselves, the "average person" probably doesn't have room in the budget for a $35-40k toy car.

Besides, there are plenty of people who are doing heavy mods, why not cater to that audience? It's also worth pointing out that they already did a build that the "average person" could afford ... the 2011 V6 project car.

i suppose the term "average" is pretty subjective.....
