🔧 BUILD Jeff's 2020 Twister Orange Mustang | Whipple Powa

General Information

I am now the 3rd owner of this 1,960 mile 2020 Twister Orange cookie cutter GT. It is a premium 401a car with performance pack, A10, active exhaust, Recaro seats, and the Bang & Olufson sound system. Car has the digital instrument cluster which I love!

A little history on the car....first owner bought the car and brought it to Lebanon Ford @122 miles. Lebanon Ford then installed a Whipple stage 2 kit, id1050x injectors, MMR billet oil pump and crank gears, and the Corsa active exhaust. This owner sold the car in May of last year with about 700 miles.

Owner 2 is a total gear head. Guy has worked for ZF Group for 25+ years and his hobby is building street cars. The shop he had on his property was fricken awesome. Id say it was about 50' x 100' and had 3 lifts with an upstairs office loft. Anyways, this guy bought the car and installed a Fore fuel system, 3.15 pumpkin, TSP longtubes, and some BMR vertical links and cradle lockout. He then had Lund tune it with an nGuage. Says he had it at the track in October and it went 9.8 @ 146 on a 2nd gear leave.

My immediate plans are to lower it about an inch, and get some street wheels. I kept my old Billet Specialties drag setup so Im good there. Next winter I'll have the A10 built and turn it up a bit.

A Golf R tried to be cute on my ride home. Had a little fun blowing past him. Also, this car is blowing the ET Streets off at 60+ mph. My blue car never did that.

The gen 3 and A10's are beast. Same deal my customer had once he got around 850-900whp, just battled traction even with a lot of suspension tuning/mods. You could also be having an issue due to how far down the front nose is, its likely not transferring weight to the back correctly. Once we leveled the the car out, threw some stock springs up front, really helped with traction and getting the front to lift.

Most of the rake is due to the drag setup having 26's up front and 28" out back. I am still going to add another 1/4" of spacer to the front to bring it up a touch.
Looks beefy
Mmm
