Thanks so much to Matt's 95 Stang and 05 Mustang for nominating me! Never thought my little 3.7 would ever have a chance here. But I've certainly got some competition! Very nice cars guys! I'll include a little bit about mine along with some pictures.
Well, it's a 2011 white V6. Why get a V6? Because I was 18 years old with no cosigner. That's right. Mommy and daddy's names aren't anywhere on this car. I was determined to have a Mustang. With no credit and no cosigner, the only way this was gonna happen to get the loan was to put down 40% of the car. So I saved that summer and 2 months later had this stock white V6 with 8,000 miles. V8 insurance at my age would be through the roof so I'm just gonna stick it out with the V6 as long as I can. As you can see my theme is black on white and I've tried my best to keep it clean, tasteful, and mean! I'll categorize some of the mods. Some of them don't necessarily have names or where I got them just because they're custom made stuff you won't see on another Mustang

Thanks to those who nominated me, Impact50, Hollywub, and SolierGT. It'll be intersting to see how this plays out... all nice cars, and all "made your own".
First, the history in a nutshell:
what I started with in 2008
quickly taped some louvers on it and was happy with it like that for 2 years
then scratched the itch for more power (whipple HO supercharger)
and "go-fast" looks (Roush front fascia/rear wing, GT/CS rear bumper, Cervini 1171 hoodm SHR louvers, GT4 wheels, and custom stripes)
which kept me happy for about another 2 years when I felt the need for even more top end, so I left it at RET for Greg to work his magic on it, which is when the Whipple was pulled and it went twin turbo. (whipple is still available if anyone is interested)
Went with danzcool. Anybody that dumpss a wipple for more power is my kinda guy.
Man, that was a tough call. I do standing mile racing, and after the second event (the first one I had the whipple tune and a speed limiter), the speed of 157.5 was a bit disappointing at which point I hatched a plan to max out the whipple with a possible future goal of going with a bigger blower, so I started actually getting the things for that plan over the winter, and probably would have gone that way if Brenspeed wasn't between built 3v engines at the time. I was able to swap out to the t56 magnum xl, mcloed RXT, jba shorties and FR 62mm throttle body, all of which added 40RWHP. I mentioned my goals to Greg when I was getting tuned at RET before the 3rd event, he said something like you're going to need a bigger blower... or turbos. At that 3rd event those 40 extra ponies got me 5MPH, so 162.5, at that point
I knew that maxing out the whipple to about 650RWHP might get me to 180, but it would have to be dumped at that point since whipple's bigger blowers don't bolt onto the manifold for the 3v kit. So after that simmered for a few months more... the decision was clear, cut the losses and move forward.
Okay, a few more photos, these were a couple of highlights in the turbo build
Really close between uin2it and bigd. Others were too gaudy for me, normally I would have went with the v6 just because you dont see them that nice often but the louvers killed it so uin2it got my vote. Some really nice cars this month tho!
