    Filed under: Aftermarket, Sports/GTs, Ford


    We know what you're thinking: "Not another new Mustang!" Well, if that was your first reaction then feel free to skip this item and move on to the next. For those who can appreciate a stylish and solid rwd platform that offers lots of speedy thrills for little dinero, we have a real gem for you. The basic Mustang, whether in V6 or V8 form, offers a lot of bang for the buck, but afficionados know it's merely a starting point. The platform can handle a lot more horsepower and where there's a need, someone will always step in to meet it. Carroll Shelby, Steve Saleen, Jack Roush and others have made a living off of it, in fact.

    Shelby, in particular, has a certain cache associated with his name that has resulted in his signature models being used directly by Ford as their special editions. One of the Shelby projects that didn't end up in a Ford dealership is the CS6 that first popped up at SEMA a couple of years ago. A supercharged V6 pumping out 300 hp is at the heart of this modded 'Stang, but lower weight up front and typical Shelby suspension mods make this car handle even better than the V8 specials. But there are always going to be those people who say they want more. One of those people was Jason Cenora of Hillbank Motorsports in Irvine, CA.
