Ford tuning information with articles and pictures about modified Ford cars for Ford tuning enthusiasts.
Check out this video below of a Smart Car with a Toyota Paseo Sprintex supercharged engine blowing away a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. If it weren’t for the Smart Car destroying blower belt after popping the wheelie and prematurely hitting the brakes before the finish line, he would be able to say he beat a 12 second car. Surely the Mustang could use a driver mod, as that car is much faster than the 13.6 it posted. Still, this Smart Car owner might need a wheelie bar at the rear if he plans to drag racing in the future.
Check out this latest video from Hennessey Performance, showcasing their new 2014 VelociRaptor SUV based on the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor truck. If you want a truck that has it all, then look no further as the $149,500 price tag is not a joke. It features a 6.2-liter V8 powerplant that has been supercharged from the factory 411 bhp, to now produce a whopping 600 bhp. This allows the sporty truck as we may say, to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds which is 1.6 seconds faster than the stock version.

They have been finished in a matte graphite color and contrast well with the shiny green and black accents of the Ford Mustang Boss 302 sports car.

Performance tuning consists of two new turbochargers and many engine components made of new “pandalloy” which is an aerospace aluminum alloy that is very light, yet holds superior strength and temperature resistance.

One of our readers sent us this picture of the Mad Mods Kustoms Rat Rod Ford 49 that has been customized beyond belief. We had to find more of this car because it is truly a piece of art.

We hope you enjoy the videos and pictures of the Mad Mods Kustoms 49 Ford Rad Rod as mush as we did!
For all those gangsters and big ballers out there, Anderson Germany has released a tuning package for the Lincoln Navigator. This isn’t a typical SUV to modify, however there are always enthusiasts looking for something new. Well here it is, the murdered out Lincoln Navi with dark tints on the rear, all black wheels and a sinister hyper gloss black paint job to bring it all together. We’re surprised the front window nor the headlights received any smoke tinting. With all this black, what’s hard to notice is the numerous pieces of carbon fiber found on the Ford manufactured Lincoln Navigator.
