CAR OF THE WEEK
2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1 owned by Juan Alvarado.
The Mustang Mach 1 is not your typical base-model Mustang, it is a special edition powered by a 4.6 liter DOHC V8 engine that was previously seen in the SVT Cobra. The engine is matted to a five-speed manual transmission and puts out 305 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The power is countered with big front brakes compliments of Brembo. Overall, this is an awesome performance car for anyone who has an affinity for American muscle. If you haven’t already, make sure to drop Juan a like and/or follow for sharing his ride.
MOD OF THE WEEK
VRSF chargepipe on a 2012 BMW 135i owned by Dewan Wahed.
The charge pipe is located between the turbo and throttle body in turbocharged cars. It is what “holds” the boost pressure and delivers it to the engine. Stock charge pipes are often plastic and have trouble handling high boost, which is why the VRSF charge pipe is the perfect upgrade for those who are putting out more than the stock PSI. Moreover, VRSF advertises an increased throttle response and decreased turbo lag over the stock charge pipe. If you enjoyed this mod make sure to stop by Dewan’s profile and drop him a like! While you’re there, check out his profile for a full list of his BMW’s mods.
CAR BIO OF THE WEEK
“Driving a 1978 Mustang II 4cyl auto trans. Daily driver, build in progress. Many plans including engine and tranny swap, paint, wheels, ect. Open to ideas and exploring options. Want to make this car unique, classic car with a modern twist. 2nd build.”
– Tyler Bruder on his 1978 Mustang II.
In 1974, the first year of the Mustang II, the car earned Motor Trend’s coveted Car of the Year award, an award not seen again until the 1994 iteration of the Mustang. This means that the Mustang II holds a noteworthy spot in the model’s lineage. The car came with three different engines, including the 4 cylinder, 88 horse-power engine found in Tyler’s Mustang. That is hardly an acceptable power number by today’s standards, especially for a muscle car—which is why he plans on swapping out the engine and transmission for something with more power. It sounds like Tyler is doing a full resto-mod based on his many plans. If you have any ideas or want to follow the build, make sure you hit up his MotorCrush profile.
DRIVER BIO OF THE WEEK
“I’m 21 love racing and attending car meets. I drive a blue 2013 Scion FRS named Exo and cars are my life.”
– Collin Hansen
We love racing and attending car meets too, Colin! That’s part of why we made MotorCrush: we want to help broadcast meets to the whole car community and get more enthusiasts involved. So, next time you’re at a meet, make sure you check in to share it on the Live feed!
PIC OF THE WEEK
1999 Porsche 911 owned by Dixon Johnston.
A Porsche 911 tangos through a corner with a yellow Mustang on its heels. The two cars dance around the track as they battle for dominance on the apexes and through the straights. Awesome shot, Dixon! Make sure to pay his profile a visit for more shots of this gorgeous Arena red 911.
