Featured Car of the Month

Q: How long have you owned your car? What were your plans when you purchased the car?
A: I purchased the car new in December of 2014, my original plan was to do a tune and exhaust and leave the car alone… that didn’t last long. I soon after put a twin turbo kit and built 6r80 transmission in the car and eventually put forged internals in the factory short block.

Q: Give us a general run down of the modifications to your 2015 Mustang?
A: I contacted SMR and they set me up with a single turbo hot side along with a Forced Inductions 91/100 turbo. During the turbo swap I made the decision to switch from a 6r80 to a powerglide transmission. The car currently has a built short block utilizing a Bear block, stock heads and cams, Gforce 9" rear end, custom painted carbon fiber cowl hood, along with full suspension, Billet Specialties wheels and numerous other changes I have made along the way.

Q: What’s one of your favorite things you’ve accomplished with the car?
A: I held the 6r80 record in the ¼ mile for roughly 3 months before someone eventually went faster than I did. My initial plan was to reset the record with the single turbo setup, however when we made the change to the powerglide that idea went out the window.

Q: What type of racing or events do you participate in with the car? Any key accomplishments?
A: I primarily do heads up drag racing with the car at this time. To date, my best time with the car has been 8.01 @ 171mph on 24psi.

Q: What did SMR assist with on your build?
A: SMR set me up with the hot side for the turbo kit as well as the Forced Inductions 91/100 turbo, along with multiple other parts for not only my car but many of my customers as well.

Q: What are you goals for 2020 with the car?
A: Right now, the car is getting an 8.50 cert cage which I purchased from Fathouse Fab. The goal is to take some additional weight out of the car and to go well into the 7’s in 2020
