Published on 2013-07-27 LatemodelRestoration.com's Whipple Supercharged 2013 Mustang GT set out on a mission for the 2013 Texas Mile in Beeville, TX -- 180 MPH. We thought it would be interesting to give you a little behind the scenes look at the work that went into getting Project High Impact ready for The Texas Mile's March 2013 event. We added some new performance parts -- Stainless Works Long Tube Headers, Ford Racing Cobra Jet Throttle Body and a Stifflers driveshaft safety loop. After a little time on the dyno at Central Texas Performance -- our Deep Impact Blue 2013 Mustang GT picked up an extra 60hp.
Watch the video and follow along as Scott sets out to get Project High Impact to 180 MPH.
Texas Mile 2013 saw a Ford GT break the record AGAIN, a scary2,800hp Camaro Crash at 220mph (luckily driver walked away) and plenty of other very fast Mustangs, Corvettes, ZR1s and many more.

I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
This car was originally made to escort people to their final resting place and it was on its way to it's own resting place after sitting for two years in storage then five additional years outside in ...
