  • The Anvil 1969 Ford Mustang

    The Anvil Mustang is a successful collaboration of design ideas and talents between Pure Vision and Anvil Auto. The project began as a vehicle to develop and showcase a new line of 1969 Ford Mustang parts for Anvil Auto. What it has become far surpassed everyone’s expectations. It has won many prestigious awards and is featured in the “Fast And Furious 6” movie and continues to gain in notoriety with a spread in Hot Rod Magazine.

    The following carbon fiber parts were developed by Anvil Auto and Pure Vision:  Custom hood with functional air extractors, front bumper, front spoiler, front fenders (widened by 1 1/8”), custom cowl panel with recessed wire mesh vent opening, deck lid, rear quarter extensions, flush bumper, custom 3 pc. rear spoiler, driver’s and passenger’s dash inserts.   Modifications to the stock sheet metal performed by Pure Vision are numerous, albeit, subtle.  Like all Pure Vision creations, the goal was to enhance the original body lines without spoiling them, while adding details that have purpose. Here is just a partial list of some of the more significant mods. Front grille modified to eliminate inboard headlights and adding fog lights behind it. Front lower valance has’66 Corvette turn signals frenched into it and former turn signal housings modified to serve as brake cooling ducts.

  • 1998-2002 GM F-Body BBK Full Exhaust Headers Swap

    Repairing and upgrading any muscle car may conceal many surprises since you don’t always know what’s in a car till after you take it apart.  We are going to swap out an old rusty set of exhaust headers on a ‘99 TransAm to help the LS engine breathe better.  Lots of changes have been introduced since 15 years ago.  The newly designed, larger diameter, Y pipe configuration BBK Exhaust Headers will definitely allow some more ponies out of the barn when we are done.

    The new exhaust headers are full-length and come equipped with a ceramic coating to keep the exhaust headers system from rusting and to better control heat radiated from under the car. There are no cats on this system so we will not be legal by emission standards in some states.

    Click here to hear how great they sound. The BBK Exhaust Headers are $525.00 from 1 Shopauto’s arsenal of go-fast goodies:

    Let’s review what it took to swap the new exhaust headers, and what power was gained. Continue reading

    Serpentine Front Drive System Product Review:

    Serpentine Front Drive Systems are not all the same. Design, materials, cost and value are not on the label when the sales rep sells you what they want you to buy.

    We compared 100’s of products from March, Billet Specialties, and All American Billet and here are the facts.

    March Billet Specialties All American Billet
    Engine Small Block Chevy Small Block Chevy Small Block Chevy
    Cost $2,100.00 $2,300.00 $1,995.00
    Hardware Materials Cadmium Bolts/Screws Stainless Bolts/Screws Stainless Button Head Cap Screws
    Brackets Required 3 Brackets Not Required Not Required
    Dimensions 40% more space required in engine bay Compact Compact
    Water Pump Included Not Included Not Included Included - Tuff Stuff
    P/S Reservoir Not Included Not Included Included
    Fit and Finish 'C' Quality 'A' Quality 'A' Quality

    All American Billet won hands down, $200 to $300 less, included the reservoir and included a new Tuff Stuff water pump too. After buying a water pump and reservoir you are saving an additional $400 to $500 and that includes the best fit and finish in the shoot out!
