{article/topic_title} Galpin Rocket Mustang going to production

Posted by hybrid on (123 views)
Originally seen in 2014 and slated to start production a month later, the Galpin Mustang is finally going to production.
However, it will now be produced by VLF Automotive and will be called the VLF Rocket V8.

The Rocket will sport a carbon fibre body and 725 horsepower (541KW) supercharged V8. Adjustable coilovers will be standard and uprated Brembo brakes will be optional.
Pricing has not been released yet, but you can imagine they aren't going to be cheap, with some suggestions of US$120,000 for the base model.
The styling is not for everyone, but it's definitely different and should live up to it's name.

{article/topic_title} What's happening - Jan 2017

Posted by hybrid on (137 views)
I'm going to try and provide an update on a monthly basis or so on what's been happening on Mustangtech.
Here's the first one for 2017.

Scarlet updates

Gbx78 has been spending some time with his mistress during the break. "Scarlet" has received some new toggle switches for things such as manual cooling fan override, spot/fog light control and oil temp gauge sharing between transmission and engine.



Some cold air induction is also in the works with the help of hybrid and ozbilt. Scarlets most recent updates can be found here.

Brandy is cool

Cage's "brandy" has been given a cooling upgrade in the form of a new radiator shroud and beastly derale fan install.



The improvement was instantly obvious, but some wiring may need to be upgraded now because of the bigger current draw of the new fan. Stay tuned.
Brandys most recent updates can be found here.

Project Phoenix gets some headers

Santa brought 66STNG and Project Phoenix some headers, but there's some fitment issues that often happen when a RHD or rack conversion is done.



Hopefully it's sorted one way or another, as this car seems to be on the home stretch.
Phoenix most recent updates can be found here.

hybrid's 66.COOP gets some cold air

66.COOP has been missing the cold air that it used to be fed from the bonnet scoop since being Paxton supercharged. It now has a new cold air system built, which will hopefully help.



Next on the list is a new 2-core radiator and connecting the battery in the boot (trunk).

Project X getting close

rkmiller's "Project X" is edging closer to completion. It's been painted, and is slowly being pieced together as time permits, including exterior trim and interior.



{article/topic_title} Hybrid Mustang for 2020

Posted by hybrid on (107 views)


Ford has announced that it will make a hybrid Mustang available in 2020. It is said that the hybrid will produce as much horsepower as the current V8's, but with more torque - which you'd expect from the addition an electric motor.
The Mustang Hybrid, to be built at the Flat Rock Plant, comes in 2020 and will be available in North America to start with.

They are also investing in the development of a wireless charging system, that would enable recharge simply by parking the car.

{article/topic_title} Lumley Special Vehicles - Discount for Mustangtech members

Posted by hybrid on (221 views)
Dear readers,
I'm just off the phone with Lumley Special Vehicles to move all my "special" vehicle insurance (one car, two bikes) from Shannons to LSV.
They asked me if I was a member of a club, and I said "sort of" and explained this place, what we were about and how we started.

He's added Mustangtech to their system, and anyone that mentions they are a member here will receive a discount.
I did not get any more of a discount for doing this - I just got the same "member" discount as anyone else would get.

But they were certainly cheaper than shannons (by 20-25%), so it's worth giving them a call to compare.

{article/topic_title} Mustang GT4

Posted by hybrid on (159 views)
Ford USA has announced the release of the Mustang GT4 - a ready to race vehicle developed with Canadian engineering firm Multimatic.
The GT4 utilises the 5.2L flat crank V8 that the GT350 sports, but it is mated to a 6-speed race transmission.

Some of the modifications include modified dampers, lower control arms, rear stabilizer bars, FIA compliant roll cage, improved aerodynamics and 18x11 inch wheels with slicks.

On top of all that, it just looks awesome.


{article/topic_title} Building and setting up a street performance 302 - Part 3

Posted by hybrid on (207 views)
Part 3 of Boofs article is online. This one discusses head and cam selection.
Boof expects that some people may not agree with his head runner size selections, but provides some mathematics to back up his reasoning.

It starts to get a bit more technical here, especially with regards to cam selection.
Enjoy!

{article/topic_title} Building and setting up a street performance 302 - Part 2

Posted by hybrid on (241 views)
The second part of Boofs engine guide has been posted.
Grab yourself a cup of tea and a biscuit for this one - it starts to get technical and into the nitty gritty.

{article/topic_title} Building and setting up a street performance 302 - Part 1

Posted by hybrid on (290 views)
boofhead - one of our valued members - has been quietly working away at an article for our Tech Zone that will be released exclusively to the Mustangtech website.
It was originally meant to be just a guide to building a suitable 302 small block Ford engine, but has turned into something much bigger than expected.

Part 1 has been released today, and discusses what preparation needs to be done from a planning point of view, and also to the vehicle itself.
This will be a very informative piece that should help plenty of us put together a package that provides the grins required.

You can find the article in the Tech Zone under the Engines & Driveline section.
Or you can click this direct link

A huge thank you goes to boof for sharing this with us.
