It wont take as much as you think. Keep in mind it has the 5.3, I can do everything a silverado can do to their engines, which is alot.
and think...a mustang going fast is cool, but its like an *******, everyone has one. how many "family suv's" do you see on the track that can run in the 12s?
its something called a sleeper...much easier to do with a suv than a mustang.
here, I want you to look at a trailblazer, then talk about family SUV's. I know the guy that built this one and he said he could do the same thing to mine. no SC, all motor(besides the bottle). He runs 10.21's at 132 in the 1/4mile and 7.60's in the 1/8 mile. Rubbing on 800rwhp. I wont go as extreme as he has, but just to show it possible. Video 1 Video 2
and about the mustang thing...believe it or not, Ive already waxed 2 GT's. now whether they knew how to drive or nots a different story.
as far as making it all black, im working that way. Ive already got the windows blacked out, next is to niteshade the tails, then Im going to do like you can on the rangers to black out the headlights. ie...taking the headlights apart and painting the chrome, I'll either do that, or for $60 get head light covers that black out all but the headlight itself and the turns, actually blends nicely on the black ones.
