Going back about three weeks ago we started seeing pictures on Brenspeed’s Facebook page of its new Gotta Have It Green 2013 Mustang GT. To our surprise the pictures weren’t of them picking it up at the dealer but rather images of the Brenspeed staff ripping into the brand-new car that had less than 100 miles on the odometer. The stock 5.0L was being removed and Brent White and the guys were installing a brand-new Ford Racing Performance Parts 5.0L Aluminator long-block. It is the low-compression kind because the purpose is to push this car hard on pump gas while driving it to all of the races. Some BMR suspension upgrades were also made while the car was on the lift. A week after purchasing and modifying the car, the team loaded it up and headed out to the NMRA event at Maryland International Raceway. Miles Wagoner slid behind the wheel of the automatic-equipped ride and dialed-in with a 12.20. Super Stang is designed to bring out S197 Mustangs and provide a fun environment allowing for many runs on Friday and Saturday before a bracket shootout on Sunday. It has become a place to showcase the latest and greatest parts from many manufacturers and performance shops but still allow the novice racer to be competitive in eliminations. Wagoner would end up surviving the onslaught of 19 other competitors and winning the race. It was his third NMRA event victory in a row.
Brenspeed loves drag racing but the mainstay of its business are really fast street cars prompting their next move to be a wise one for business as well as racing. After the celebration was over the Brenspeed staff went back to work in the shop and began ordering more parts for the Gotta Have It Green business card. First on the list was a ROUSHcharger supercharger system using a TVS 2300 rotor system. More suspension upgrades, torque converter swap, and a full Roush Stage 3 (RS3) conversion package were also procured for the car. We don’t have any power results yet on the ROUSHcharger combination as the team is still working on the RS3 conversion but as soon as we get word we will update this post. Brenspeed’s Brent White told us that the goal is to have the low 10-second ride make a public debut at the Roush Collection Open House on June 14th, right before the NMRA event at Milan Dragway (June 15-16).
