As with all our project Mustangs, our 2013 Mustnag GT, AKA Project High Impact, has been a test mule for many 2013-14 Mustang parts we sell. This project got its name from the Ford color Deep Impact Blue. Project High Impact is a Premium model that is fully loaded with the Recaro seat option, Track Pack (Brembo brakes, oil cooler and Torsen differential to name a few options) and Track Apps.

Since it was first introduced, we have added a lot of new performance and dress-up mods to Project High Impact. The first order of business was to bring down the stance and improve the suspension with a set of Ford Racing lowering springs, adjustable shocks & struts. Next up was a host of exterior modifications that included Ford Racing GT500 wheels and Nitto Invo tires. Followed up by 2013 Boss 302 front chin spoiler and grille. Lastly we wanted to add some serious horsepower, so we turned to Ford Racing again and installed a Whipple supercharger kit (M-6066-MGT624D) and 2013 Shelby GT500 Axle Back Kit (M-5230-MSVTCD).

Project High Impact has made the trip to Mustang Week, Texas Mile, Mid-America Shelby Meet and more. There is only way to summarize this S197 Mustang and that is a head-turer with performance to match. Check out all the install videos and tech articles below!
