Steven Grandin - 1996 Ford Mustang
I started with a stock 96 mustang and decided to turn it into a race car - with the help of my friends at Cortex racing (who have done all of the work!), we first stripped the interior and took out close to 1000lbs then added back a full cage - swapped the engine for a 2004, 4.6 liter 3 valve engine (lighter weight and better shape), but still just a used engine... custom headers, K&N cold air intake, HP radiator, upgraded all springs/shocks, put on a Big Brake system, added watts link and rear stabilizers, put on the G Stream rear wing and added a cobra front end with a custom splitter, which have significantly increased down force. Upgraded to 18/310 tires and wheels (Enkei wheels - BF Goodrich tires) - full fire suppression, AIM telemetry and video system. I typically run at Thunder Hill and Sonoma International with the Hooked on Driving crowd. we are currently upgrading the nose and rear end to fit wider tires, getting a new 6 speed tranny - new pictures will be forthcoming when we are done! Keep it black or go to racing Blue? Let me know what you think!!
