Installing a ProCharger Supercharger on a 3.8 V-6 Mustang

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Now we brought the main unit over to the car and installed it behind the radiator fan, this is a very close fit, but the unit will slip on if aligned properly. You must not force it.

When does a V-6 engine crank out more power than a V-8? When it’s boosted by a power adder system such as a turbo or supercharger.In the case of ProCharger, we found a system that delivers excellent power and drivability (more…)

Roland Ball of Plano, Texas, sure knows how to have a great Father’s Day. It was in June 2002 when he first saw and fell in love with this unique 1968 Shelby GT500 KR.

The new Mustang is an excellent platform for performance, with great power and terrific looks. But let’s face it, the suspension is a compromise between ground clearance and a cushy ride for the masses.
