Now, I realized I need multiple fun cars so if one goes down, I'm not overly stressing and rushing to get it done. I was just working on the Mustang putting a chute on it and it pissed me off so I got in the Shelby and went for a ride. Nice stress reliever!

As far as the color combo, it's quasi rare. I've only seen it a couple times and honestly, its the only reason I bought the car that day. Once I saw it, I wouldn't settle for another combo.

Stock... It is disappointing. It was a confusing car. 662hp is nice but they put 285mm tires on it and made it feel like they built it for old people. It's too refined.. Even though the stock mufflers sound good, you can't hear it... Even with the windows down. It's nearly impossible to slam 2nd gear due to drivetrain flex. I've had to swap out shifters, motor mounts, add torque limiters, trans mount bushings all in order to hit 2nd. Now... It's perfect. The stock rear suspension needed work too. The stock geometry for the car was so far out of whack.

I'm nearly close to having it perfect but you'd think for the money, this car wouldn't need mods to hit 2nd gear or tires/suspension to make the car usable. Even a set of Pilot Sports would have been a major upgrade over Goodyear's.

Besides the negative stuff, car is a looker. It's gearing makes it a highway beast and it sounds amazing with just an off road h pipe on stock mufflers. The powerplant is silly. 700rwhp with 6 mods lol

Ya Ford needs to be punched in the face for making remote mount shifters for the mt-82 and tr-6060. I almost have my 5.0 shifting the way I want after a twin disc clutch, ss line, mgw shifter and need to get a whiteline trans bushing. while the tr-6060 is better i'll prolly swap to the magnum when mine explodes.

The remote mounted shifter is a joke. The magnum XL is awesome and a no brainer if you want a better stick shifting experience. I miss having an automatic with this garbage.

Since Justin is busy moving, I figured I would update his post and as you can see the car has changed a bit

Justin Young’s GT500’s New Look: Achieving the Perfect Wrap



Mustang guys know Justin Young from Mod Motor Mustangs and the group’s quickly-growing annual ModNationals drag race held at South Georgia Motorsports Park. Our readers will remember him from the recent coverage of his GT500 build. We absolutely adore Justin’s passion and attitude towards modern muscle cars, and his car has left a big impression on our staff and readers alike.
Over the last few weeks, Justin has been teasing the internet about an upcoming appearance change to his Shelby, and he’s giving us the first look at what he’s done. While he has at least let on that he’s having his car wrapped, he’s kept the color and/or graphics totally secret from the watchful eyes of the internet. So here it is:






The wrap was done by the artist at Elite Custom Installs in Fredericksburg, VA.
“We knew this wrap had to be absolutely perfect because the Mustang community would be waiting to offer their critiques, and we’re proud to present the new look of Justin’s Shelby.” -Chris, Owner and Wrap Artist at Elite Custom Installs
Something not many people consider is that no matter how careful you are with them, cars can get scuffed during normal operation. Towing to the track, and just driving around town, the body of any car can quickly become ‘too damaged’ to wrap, which can mean even minimal dents or paint scratches. We’ll talk more about the technique behind wrapping and this myth that you can wrap anything in an article that’s later to come.







#gallery-7 { margin: auto; } #gallery-7 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-7 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-7 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }


To get his car up to snuff for a proper, professional wrap, Young enlisted Extreme Custom Collision, a high-end body shop in Virginia, to fix the bumpers and repaint some spots needed to get the car ready to be enveloped in its new hue. They were also the ones who recommended Justin take his car to Elite Custom Installs to make sure he was in good hands to have the wrap performed and give the car new life.
#gallery-8 { margin: auto; } #gallery-8 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 25%; } #gallery-8 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-8 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }








Justin Young is the kind of person who doesn’t make a move without some serious planning and reasoning behind it, so we wanted to know more about his choice to change the appearance, and why he went with the look he did. We once again got Justin to sit down with us and offer a little insight on his decision to change the color, and the choices he made along the way.
P&P: Why did you decide to change the color?

Photo by NJS Media

I absolutely loved the grey color with the Sonic Blue stripes. It looks so good in person. Unfortunately, Grey cars go unnoticed, and with the number of sponsors and vendors that were paramount in helping me build this car, I felt a color change would be just the ticket to get this car viewed by more eyeballs. The white-on-black theme will never get old and it looks amazing without being overdone.
P&P: Why did you decide to wrap instead of paint or dip?


Justin Young: I can’t paint a Shelby. If it was a base model, sure but not this car. But since it is a Shelby, a full and complete color change was needed. It’s a high-end Mustang, it deserves a top-notch wrap job. It looks like a paint job. The quality of today’s wrapping material is insane. Most people that’ll look at this car, will assume and believe it’s a paint job. The amount of detail that went into it is remarkable and you’ll have to look very hard and close to see the telltale signs that it’s a wrap.
“The shop set the bar high and I feel you’ll see more Shelbys getting wrapped like mine.”
The benefits of the wrap are many. Firstly, and specifically for a Shelby, you aren’t diminishing the value of the car by changing the color. People who buy Shelbys generally want an OEM color. If I ever were to sell this car, with or without the wrap, they have the option to go with an OEM color.

Secondly, protection of said OEM paint. This paint will be showroom condition as long as this wrap stays on. Thirdly, if I don’t absolutely love the color, it’s a lot easier to change than a full paint job.

Finally, if I do get scratches from the kid’s bike, or a door is dinged or scratched, we can just replace the vinyl piece that was damaged very easily and cheaper than paint. With the ceramic coat protection we added, this wrap could very well last 10 years with proper care.
P&P: Why did you choose this color?


JY: My whole life, it seems like I’ve been drawn to white cars, as I’ve owned my fair share of them, not even intentionally. Their starkness has always drawn me in.
We were so serious about this wrap and making the car white that every body panel that could be removed was. We wanted every piece of exposed grey to be white and as you can see, we went to the extreme. We even plastidipped the engine bay, inner body panels, door hinges and inner gas cap lid black to complete the transformation.
When I went to Memphis for the first year of ModNationals, I met John Bonner of Dynospeed Racing. John owns a very fast and very clean white S197 on Weld wheels and it spoke to me. That was the new goal with the car.

I may be in the minority but I think the original colors were more unique than another white Mustang... at least with the wrap it's easily reversible.

The attention given on that wrap is incredible. Doing all the jambs and under hood area would be a major PITA.

Yes, but he explained why he changed the color.

Justin Young is with Joe Goodnough and 3 others.

5 mins







VMP TVS 2650 / 2.8" / 20.5 degrees / 18.9 PSI peak
vs
BPS Trinity 2.3 / 2.4" / 22.5 degrees / 18.84 PSI

Read into this how you want but bottomline, the 2.65 is a bad bitch and I can't wait to see what it does on the '19/20 GT500. 1000whp on a stock engine will be easy.
