101200G15 (1)When you hear the term “E85,” a few thoughts probably come into your head. Putting aside some of the politics that have entered the conversation, ethanol presents an interesting alternative to standard gasoline.  We’ve all heard what it can do in terms of MPGs, but what about amplifying the performance of your late model muscle car, such as a Ford Mustang? We’ve done some research and the results are worth reading.

182535_Front_3-4_WebIf you’ve been following the 2016 Shelby GT350R (if you’re reading this it’s a pretty good bet), you’ve likely noticed the same three words being used repeatedly: flat-plane crank. This phrase seems simple enough as it merely refers to the configuration of the V8. However, explaining why it’s preferable over a cross-plane setup can become a bit tedious. Welcome to your handy, relatively straightforward guide to flat-plane vs. cross-plane V8s.

Steeda Velocity Cold Air IntakeIf you’re a 2015 Mustang GT owner, you’ve likely noticed that available suspension and aesthetic modifications are still a touch on the slim side. Thankfully, when it comes to the engine, options are far more plentiful. With the huge potential of the coyote V8, you don’t need four figure upgrades to see noteworthy power increases. Of all the affordable bolt-on kits we’ve seen, one of the best comes courtesy of Steeda’s Ultimate Induction Pack.

Super-Snake-626x417For regular Motorz viewers and readers, it probably comes as little surprise that we love the new Ford Mustang GT. It looks great, is a solid platform for a variety of builds and has the potential for huge power. Frankly, considering the 450 hp the 5.0L V8 delivers, it’s hard to want for more. Hard, but not impossible. Which is why we badly want to try out the just-announced Shelby Super Snake.

10383654_10205331116415257_922855952966267034_nAs part of a generation that grew up with Playstation 2 and the original Xbox, video games have always been a part of my life. Being properly addicted to all things automotive, the vast majority of those games involved fast cars and faster tracks. From Sebring to Nurburgring, Mazda Miata to Corvette C6.R, setting quick lap times in any given car became progressively easier with experience. However, how does that living room track time translate to the real thing?

Camaros-6For those of us with gasoline flowing through our veins, the term “auto enthusiast” is quite an understatement. For us, cars aren’t a hobby; they’re a lifestyle, passion and motivation. At times, our community may seem spread thin, but if you know where to look, getting involved with a thriving car culture can be surprisingly easy. Whether you’re interested in fully built trucks, muscle cars or anything in-between, here are a few steps to finding your car culture. (more…)

2015-ford-mustang-23l-ecoboost-photo-616964-s-986x603For car enthusiasts, the number of manufacturers offering driving excitement hasn’t exactly been growing. However, there are still a few automakers delivering surprisingly great sports cars. Sitting near, if not at, the top of the list is the Ford Motor Company. Phenomenal new Mustang? Check. Obnoxiously good sporty hatchbacks? Check. World challenging mega-supercar? Done and done. That led us to wonder; for a typical sports car budget of $25k, what’s the most fun Blue Oval?

Ford GT350RThere’s something intrinsically special about fast Fords. From the original Shelby Mustang, the GT350, to the GT40 and beyond, a blistering Blue Oval is always a notch more desirable than cars of even twice the price. That is, of course, unless you’re dedicated to the Bow Tie’s own speed demons. Regardless of your loyalty, when these two Detroit superpowers go head to head, everybody wins. And with the introduction of the GT350R, we may be gearing up for the battle of the century.

With lightened components, functional aerodynamics and grippy tires, you’ll be moving around corners quite a lot faster than before. Considering the significant increase in speed, it’s time to bring your brakes up to spec. Welcome to Track Day Muscle Part 4: High Performance Braking.

1968 Ford GTTypically we think of modern muscle cars as performance bargains, offering incredible power for relatively little. However, when it comes to classic muscle, especially examples with historical importance, prices head very quickly in the other direction. In an auction setting, it’s not uncommon for original or well restored favorites to crack into six figure territory. Our own Chris Duke and Alan Taylor got a firsthand look at the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction.

As impressive as those numbers are, certain examples with the right owners, background and place in history can enter an entirely different stratosphere. Ready to see some jaw dropping numbers? Check out our list of the six most expensive muscle cars ever sold:

H&R Coil OversIn the two previous chapters of the Track Day Muscle series, interior and exterior upgrades, we reviewed the critical first steps to preparing a track ready car. With driver safety, wheels, tires and aerodynamics all addressed, it’s time to bring the suspension up to par. It’s time for Track Day Muscle: Part 3.
