Our 1973 Mustang is 42 years old, which means the gas tank has seen 42 years worth of various qualities of gasoline, sludge, condensation, residue, and most likely rust. Since we’re upgrading the engine to a blown and injected (Holley Terminator EFI) combination, we knew the stock tank, lines, and mechanical pump were out of the question for use, so we needed a new tank and fuel system.

It’s easy to out-trick yourself when it comes to a fuel system. By the time you buy a fancy aftermarket pump, filters, and several dozen feet of braided hose and fittings, it’s shockingly easy to spend $1,000 or more on a fuel system. But there’s an easier and less expensive way to go about it for a street car, even one that’ll see track days like Large Marge. We got a brand new tank from Tanks Inc. with an internal Walbro electric fuel pump, the same pump used in countless OE applications so you know it’s dead-nuts reliable. The whole kit from Tanks Inc. included the tank, pump, baffle, mounting kit, sending unit, and new tank straps, and cost only $235.00. That’s less than most aftermarket pumps by themselves!

Some cutting and possibly welding needs to be done to the new tank to mount the internal pump, so it’s always a good idea to start with a brand new tank that’s never had fuel in it to avoid creating your own Hindenburg scenario. Watch as Jason shows how to prep and install the tank, and also check out his handy tech tip on how to easily assemble twist-lock hose and fittings.

S550 Weekly: 2015 Mustang Louvers

2015 MMD By Foose MustangThe 2015 Mustang redefined muscle car design, but there is still one key element missing from your muscle car masterpiece: Mustang Louvers! Louvers and Mustangs have went together like peanut butter and jelly since the Mustang first rolled off of the assembly line in 1964. Louvers help the body lines to better flow and work together, creating a sleek and aggressive retro-inspired look that any enthusiast would love.

Originally made popular by the 1969 Mach 1 Mustang, rear window Louvers have been a reoccuring design theme on the Mustang. Re-popularized by late model Mustangs, rear window louvers have helped to really give the Mustang a unique profile and aggressive appearance.

2015 Mustang owners can rejoice as AmericanMuscle now offers rear window louvers for the S550 chassis. Constructed from light weight aluminum, these rear window louvers are dressed in an intimadating matte black color, which can be painted whatever color you want.

Quarter Window Louvers

If you’re looking for that one mod to set your 2015 Mustang apart from the rest than a set of quarter window louvers is exactly what the doctor ordered. A continuing staple of the Mustang’s design is its nonfunctional quarter window. Instead of tinting it, cover it up and help the body to flow better with a quarter window louver. Currently, there are two great offerings for the 2015 Mustang. Roush’s Quarter Window Scoops add a touch of that signature Roush styling, smoothing out the profile of your Mustang.

If you are looking for something different, than MMD by Foose has you covered.
