I am 24 years old and currently work in the oil fields and have been forgoing doing that for 5 years now. I have been into cars for as long as I can remember. Cars and video games have always been my passion, when I'm not at work, I'm either doing something to my car or streaming on Twitch. The mustang is the first car I ever purchased new which was a huge accomplishment for me. Especially since I have owned somewhere around 15 cars since I was 18.
I am currently a part of the Chaotic Society and have been for about a year and a half now. They are an amazing group of people I would even go as far as saying they are more of a family than a group or club. I can truly say that the car scene has changed my life, most of my closest friends are more like family now, I have met because of the car scene. Whether it be from a car meet, car show or even just selling or buying car parts, I've met incredible people because of it.
My dad was the one who got me into cars at a very young age, he was a circle track racer. He drove circle track dirt racing for most of my childhood which is what really kicked off my passion for cars. He would take me to the racetrack every weekend and once a year he would take me to a car show in Corpus Christi called Heat Wave which opened my eyes to modified cars other than race cars.
The mustang is far from my first car but is my first domestic vehicle. I have always loved imports, I have owned 1 of my dream cars which was an R32 Nissan Skyline that I imported from Japan. Most of my other vehicles ranged from Nissan 240s to BMW's but no matter what car I owned it had to have a turbo which is what lead me in the direction of buying the eco boost.
To be truthful I never thought I would own a mustang but a good friend of mine let me drive him and after I did I knew I had to buy one. The car is so comfortable and a perfect mixture of daily driver and track car all in one. The eco boost platform is perfect for people that are into imports but what to give a go at owning and modifying a domestic vehicle.
Owning this car has been a very unique feeling because of the modifications I have done to the car it's not easy to drive anywhere unnoticed. All of the attention I get ranges from good and bad because like most builds, you can never please everyone. An example of the good is how awesome it is seeing kids get excited when I drive by them because it reminds me of the excitement I got when seeing a modified car when I was their age.
Even though there is a lot of "stanced" s550 mustangs being done I personally think everyone's build has their own unique parts. Like my car having the 4" blast pipes and a Cobra R hood and GT350 front bumper which is something you don't normally see on eco boost lets my car stand out from others.
- K&N Cold Air Intake
- Rev 9 Catless downpipe
- Custom 3" straight pipe w/ 4" Blast Pipes
- Tuned by AFI Tunes
- Aodhan DS02 19x11+15 squared setup
- Airlift Performance 3P Suspension Kit
- Cobra R 4" cowl hood
- GT350 Front Bumper
Hopefully, in the near future, I would like to go full e85 and big turbo on the car to make as much power as possible and test the limits of the 2.3L Eco Boost motor. As for exterior mods, I would like to do in the future I want to keep it simple for now. I want to add a GT350R track pack spoiler, some kind of aggressive rear diffuser and a custom-built set of GMR 3pc wheels. Possibly once the car is paid off and I have something new I might decide to do a full wide-body on the car but that won't be for a good while.
Most of the work I have done on my own but iv always had coilovers on all of my cars so when it came to installing bags I had to call in for some help. A good friend of mine has his own company selling and installing suspension parts and wheels so he was able to help me knock out the install pretty quick on the car.
My number 1 dream car is a 1998 Toyota Mk4 Supra imported from japan. Ever since I saw the supra in the original Fast and Furious I knew I had to own one at some point in my life.
