The Ford Racing Handling Pack
The Ford Racing Handling Pack

This week on a NEW episode of HorsePower, we celebrate Edelbrock’s 75 years of high performance with a special build on a new 5.0-Liter Mustang! This pony car will be getting a new E-Force supercharger, Ford Racing suspension, exhaust and much more!

“A supercharged Mustang needs a super suspension to handle all the extra power, and that’s exactly what we’re gonna give it with this Ford Racing handling pack. … It’s designed to give the car more road course attitude without sacrificing any of the handling,” said HorsePower host Mike Galley.

Not only is HorsePower building the ultimate performance Mustang, but we will be giving it away to one lucky PowerBlock viewer! Want your chance to win? Click here: Edelbrock Mustang Giveaway

You can catch this episode of HorsePower at 9:30 a.m. EST Saturday and Sunday (April 27-28) on Spike TV. Check your local listings for specific times.

PowerBlock fan pays tribute to his dad’s memory with fifth-gen Camaro build

When PowerBlock searches for a Gearhead of the Week, we often get long descriptions of project vehicles that we can’t always fit in the space we’re provided, but we definitely understand and appreciate your enthusiasm for your ride!

PowerBlock fan Tim Collette happens to be one of those Gearheads. “My passion for Chevy started pretty much when I was big enough to go out and shops and help my father with his race cars,” Tim said. Unfortunately, Tim’s dad was diagnosed with liver caner in 2010 and passed away before fulfilling his dream of owning a fifth-gen Camaro. As a tribute to his father, Tim got a 2010 Chevy Camero SS/RS to carry out his dad’s dream.

You can see the details of Tim’s ride right here: Gearhead of the Week
