2008 Bullitt Mustang

This Post is going to be for those that would like to See & Read
about Mods.
Also, for those that simply LUV Fast Mustangs.

I picked BRENSPEED in Pierceton, IN. to do my 08 Bullitt Mustang.
I would recommend them to anyone. They are a 1st class operation.

They also offer their Guest House to Out-of-State customers that
are traveling long distance. A simple phone call 1-574-594-9559
will "Reserve" it.

Here are Pics of the Guest House.

I stayed at the Guest House while the Bullitt was being Modded.
There was at times two Techs. (Mike & Dave) working on the Bullitt
at different times. Mike (Primary Tech) started on the Bullitt as soon
as they opened and stopped when they closed. He took a Very-Small
lunch break and was right back to work. Dave also as I said worked
on it some while Mike was working on a different area.

This is an overlay showing the (Flywheel Horsepower) in "Yellow".
This is what you (Usually) read in Magazines on all vehicles like the
Shelby GT500, SS Camaro, SRT8 Challeger, Charger etc.
Gives you an idea of just how STRONG this 2008 Bullitt Mustang is.

Here are the things I did "Before" I went to BRENSPEED in
Preparation for the (Increased-Power).
Custom Limited Edition Plate along with Strut-Tower-Brace
has been Removed
Here is the New Custom Plate

Custom Plate fits right in
the Rectangle Box

New Tires that are the Exact same ones that came on the GT500

Painted for 1-week underneath every Rusted place I could find. It
was so HOT I had to cover up to keep from Scorching my Legs on
Top and Bottom against Asphalt Driveway.

Installed H&R Hub Centric 25MM Front & Rear Wheel Spacers.

The rear spacers go on with (No-Problem) & Wheels fit Great
But the Front Spacers fit okey but you have to "Cut" Off your
existing 5-Wheel Studs. They stick out to "Far". This is how you
should do the cutting. High Speed Dremel Tool W/Cutting Blade.
Look at this Pic and notice I left the Wheel-Lugs on next to the
Lug I was Cutting-Off. This way No-Messed up Threads.

Here are the Pieces that were Cut-Off. Notice they are different

This pic shows the Finished Product. After cutting those Lugs off.
You have to then use the Dremel with a Grinding-Wheel. To make
all the Cut-Off-Studs as close as possible to the same (Length).
You, Do-Not actually Cut or Grind any of the (Threads). You are
only working with the end of the studs before you get to the
Threads. Takes time but (Not-Hard) to do.

I sent my 2-Back Stock Wheels to James at Weldcraft to have them
(Widened). They were 8.5" stock and they added 1.5" to make them
10" Wide. Shelby GT500 has 9.5" Wheels Front & Rear.
I know many of you are interested in this so you can retain the
Stock Wheels, so here are many Pics of the Widened Wheels.

Here are the 2-Rear wheels Mounted & Balanced
This one took only 1-Weight

This one took 2-Small Weights

Here is the (Front-Side) of the Wheels as I removed them from the
Very-Well-Packed Box.
Notice, Not a Mark, Period !!!

Here are 2-Pics of the Box they came back in.
They were (Double-Boxed) and then had Bubble-Wrap.

Here are 3-Pics of the Rear of my Bullitt.
I changed the Fake Gas Cap to a
(Silverhorse Racing Black Billet Trunk Emblem).
I Added the (Silverhorse Racing Black Honeycomb Taillight Panel) to
match the Front. BRENSPEED then Added the (Silverhorse Racing
Billet Fuel Door).



Here is a Pic of My-Bullitt sitting outside for Months while doing
the above changes.

"Resource" here that is (Factual).

Happy-Modding Everyone ..........

Here I am arriving at Comfort Inn
Bullitt W/Brenspeed Cover on

Next morning getting ready to pull
cover off & Leave

This is interesting I think. These Pics were taken
by a former Ford Engineer that was traveling.
He saw the Bullitt the night before and
was waiting when I came out to leave.
I started it up to let it Warm-Up and
when I came back out he was checking the
Bullitt out.
He shot these Pics and was Excited over the way
the Bullitt now Sounded and the New
H/P & Torque figures.

I drove back to BRENSPEED Performance and
waited for Dyno Don to show-up from
Indianapois, IN.
He was going to drive the Bullitt back and
then feed me at The Crackle Barrel
Here's Don getting the 08 Bullitt Keys
Good Times !!!

From trying to follow Don on the way to Indianapolis, IN. I think he was having
a Great time. :smile: Or it certainly Sounded like it from where I was sitting. :lol:
He will have to tell what He thought.

Does this mean your Steeda Underdrive Pullies are now for sale?
Hi Mike,

Actually they were not mine to sell.

But Al's Son, Aaron purchased them and the Steeda "Billet" Delete Plates from BRENSPEED.
He is going to do some Performance Mods to his New Shelby GT this coming summer.
So, he is in the process of gathering his parts as money allows.

Al on Left, Aaron his Son on Right.

Hey Terry very nice.. very very nice... but, I gotta ask as I am sure you are well aware.. you are dangerously close to the limits of the stock rotating assembly with your new setup there. What are your plans for when you throw something? With over 500 Horses and 11.5 PSI it is like a ticking bomb.

I have a smile a mile wide across my face just looking at your pictures - I can't imagine how wide your smile must be! Thanks for sharing the creation of your dream car! Wishing you a million miles of fun! :clap:
Hi Al,

Thank you kind Sir. :)

I "Appreciate" your thoughtful comments.

I have not really opened it up at all as of yet.

I was given some instructions on breaking in the New Spec 2 + Clutch & Steel Flywheel.

So, I am following those by the number.

Don't forget to drop back by tomorrow to see the "ACTION" Video when I Add it to the #1 Post.

Thanks again, Pal.
