Like the title says, I have spent a lot of time in the drivers seat of our 2005 Mustang GT lately. Saturday & Sunday we were racing at the Motorstate Challenge at Gingerman Raceway, Monday a quick wash & detail, Tuesday morning a 15 hour road trip to Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach South Carolina to end it all with a trip back to Michigan. So for all you people who thought we just babied our cars by trailering them from show to show, be prepared to be disappointed.
Ford built an awesome car when they designed the S-197 Mustang…. Carroll Shelby refined it……. Our buddy Nate made his U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E!!!!! As if the Shelby GT 500 was not enough, Nate decided to go with the Air Lift Performance suspension for dramatically improved performance handling characteristics and the ability of getting in and out of his driveway without scraping his prized ride.
This snake slithers on 20 inch Alcoa’s wrapped in Nitto rubber, 255/35/20 up front and 275/35/20 in the rear. Power has been enhanced by a 2.3L TVS supercharger with a 2.6″ pulley, Afco dual fan heat exchanger, MHR Tank, a full Shelby KR exhaust and sports a VMP tune. If you ever thought air suspension was not intended to handle power, Nate’s venomous Shelby blows that theory right out of the water.
Nate would like to give a shout out to his buddy Zak ”Thanks for doing most of the install while I handed you tools and ordered pizza.” If you like carving corner’s, want improved ride quality, and full height adjustability for your modern muscle car contact your local Air Lift Performance Dealer today!
