Ford is, as ever, determined to make a big splash at this year’s Specialty Equipment Marketing Association show (SEMA). Along with custom Edges, F-150s, and Explorers, the Ford stand will be littered with no less than eight wildly customized tuner Mustangs. Check them all out below.
Bisimoto BisiBoost Ford Mustang EcoBoost
Bisimoto engineering didn’t just crank up the power of the 310-hp, 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo-four. They nearly tripled it for their high-octane, 900-hp BisiBoost Mustang EcoBoost for SEMA (above), including 14 new engine and chassis parts designed in-house.
The 900-hp four-cylinder turbo gets its muscle from a host of serious upgrades. Bisimoto added AEM electronics like a new ECU with boost controller, flex fuel sensor, and fuel pressure regulator; forged billet pistons; Five O Motorsport fuel injectors; Golden Eagle cylinder sleeves, fuel rail, and air intake; MagnaFuel fuel pump; NGK Iridium spark plugs; custom head work; a Turbonetics turbo with an internal wastegate and blow-off valve; a Spearco intercooler, and more. Bisimoto’s own design team built a Web Level 2.4 camshaft, custom exhaust, 360-degree oil cap, steel rods, intake heat shielding gasket, and more.
To handle all the extra grunt is a big BuddyClub four-piston brake kit, KW INOX V3 coilover suspension, Progress Technology performance sway bar set, 19-inch wheels, and Toyo R888 tires. Inside is a full Watson Racing roll cage, data logger, Momo racing seats, and Gulstrand Engineering racing harness. The exterior gets a custom body from Airdesign USA, along with a vinyl and powder-coat paint for a blacked-out look.
Ford Mustang GT by Motorso
Connectivity is the theme of the Motoroso Ford Mustang GT SEMA car. On the car’s custom trunk lid are multiple iPads, so onlookers can check out the Motoroso app and social media site. The custom GT boasts a Roush RS2 powertrain upgrade with a 727-hp supercharged V-8, Gibson exhaust with dual stainless steel X-pipes and black ceramic coated tips, AMSOIL dominator motor oils, and an upgraded battery.
Eibach supplies the Sportline spring kit for the chassis, while Wildwood Aerolite adds six-piston calipers, two-piece slotted rotors with high-friction pads, and braided stainless hoses for the front brakes. Rear stopping power comes from dual drilled and slotted e-coated rotors with similar pad and hose upgrades.
Most of the car’s visual pop comes courtesy of Rotiform SPF forged 21-inch wheels with a candy red paint job, all shod in Pirelli P-Zero tires. Roush supplies performance hood vents to go with the matte blue and white pearlescent paint, LED lighting, and aggressive body kit. Inside are unique racing pedals, premium audio, a MAD custom steering wheel, and lots of custom interior covers and inserts.
TS Designs Mustang Widebody
This open-top tuner car for SEMA looks extra mean with its red-and-black paint scheme for the Mustang EcoBoost. The wider rump allows for even bigger Forgiato Formula star-pattern 22-inch rear wheels and 13-inch-wide tires, compared to 21-inch wheels and 9.5-inch tires up front.
It packs a RaceTec intercooler, K & N air filter, and Magnaflow cat-back exhaust underneath, plus handling upgrades from Steeda’s Stage 3 package. That piles on adjustable rear toe links, support bracing for the independent rear suspension, lower springs, front and rear sway bars with billet mounts, and aluminum vertical links.
Ford Mustang GT Convertible by Mad Industries
There’s no way you’ll miss this V-8-powered drop-top pony car, thanks to its striking Pure Black and Brilliant Blue color scheme. Not only are the forged 21-inch wheels with Pirelli tires painted blue to match the front grille work, mirrors, and hood art, but the whole interior is done up with a custom blue leather. Add to that a suede and leather steering wheel, gloss trim, Sparco seats, tonneau cover, and custom floor mats, and you’ve got a seriously wild-looking Mustang.
It’s not all about the looks though, as the Mad Mustang GT Convertible has under its hood a 725-hp V-8 with a 2.9-liter twin-screw Whipple supercharger. An Eibach adjustable coilover kit and upgraded brakes help keep everything nice and tidy on winding roads.
Ice Nine Group Ford Mustang Fastback
Ice Nine says it created this low, mean, brilliant white EcoBoost Mustang with inspiration from DTM Touring cars and the new Shelby GT350R. The widebody kit is painted with Ice Nine’s own custom white and black crystal paint, pairing with Classic Design Concept’s rear window spoiler, and custom headlights. More inspiration from the GT350R is apparent with the Ice Nine Mustang’s door panels, center console, shift knob, and steering wheel.
With 475 hp at the wheel thanks to a Garret turbo, Vortech charge cooler and blow-off valve, Dead Hook tuning, custom downpipe, and Corsa prototype exhaust, it definitely has the stout power to match with its track-car looks. An Air Lift air suspension kit pairs with 20-inch wheels and Nitto tires, as well.
DRAGG Ford Mustang
Drag Racing Against Gangs & Graffiti wants to make sure the cops are best equipped to enforce the law, and so customized this municipal-service tuner Mustang EcoBoost. They say it’s the 2.3 for the 5-0.
In addition to the Vortech intercooler, Borla exhaust, American Muscle BAMA tuning, Air Lift suspension, Wildwood brakes, and 20-inch wheels, the DRAGG Mustang is outfitted with a fearsome police-spec exterior. On top of the roof is a traditional light bar, combining with a push bar up front, custom graphics, red-and-blue lighting package, and police radio system for a convincing cop-tuner hybrid.
CGS Performance Ford Mustang Convertible
CGS added their own cat-back exhaust, cold air intake, Whipple intercooler, KW coilovers, Steeda handling package, and Brembo brakes to up the ante on the EcoBoost Mustang. Visual details are just as impressive, with gorgeous 21-inch forged wheels up front with 22s in back, a TS widebody kit, a carbon fiber rear diffuser, and lower front spoiler. Comfort is as important as style inside, where the Alea custom leather seats, center console, door panels, steering wheel, shift boot, and trim make it a fine place to motor hard.
Bojix Design Ford Mustang
This Canadian touch to the EcoBoost Mustang has an aggressive flair. White, silver, and orange paint combine for a flashy look with bold grille inserts, a Carbon 2 Carbon body kit, and carbon fiber exhaust tips. Inside are Recaro front seats (the rears have been removed in GT350R-spec), an upgraded audio system, and illuminated door sills.
Bojix gives their EcoBoost Mustang a Full-Race Motorsports intercooler, charge pipes, an upgraded turbo, downpipe, intake, coilover suspension, Eibach front and rear sway bars, and a Brembo braking kit. Ford Performance supplies the rear sub-frame bushings, 3.73 gear, and differential bearing kit. It’s a brash Canadian touch on modern American tuner muscle.
