Mustang Of The Day: 2006 Ford Shadrach Mustang GT By Pure Power Motorsports

In order to honor Super Stock drag racing legends Hubert “Georgia Shaker” Platt and Randy “Mr. Big Stuff” Payne, Pure Power Motorsports created the Shadrach, a twin-turbo Mustang boasting 900 horsepower and top-of-the-line hardware to maximize its power.

To achieve this, the team began with a 2006 Mustang GT, stripping it down to its shell. The engine, designed by Al Moody Racing Engine, uses the original block and CNC-ported 3-valve heads, with additional forged parts added. The vintage-looking Kinsler velocity stack injection unit, with two injectors per cylinder, is situated on top. The intake charge is pressurized by a pair of scrolls from Precision Turbo and cooled by a water-to-air intercooler. The T56 six-speed manual transmission is responsible for delivering all of the power to the rear wheels.

The vehicle’s suspension is just as impressive, with Ohlins dampers connecting to a variety of AJE and Metco parts. Brembo brakes and a Strange 9″ Ford rear axle help slow things down and put the power to the wheels. The exterior receives a Shadrach body kit, side-exhaust systems, a Pro Stock-style wing, 20″ wheels, and vintage “The Going Thing” graphics. Inside, the vehicle features a 6-point roll bar, leather-wrapped Recaro seats, and plenty of carbon fiber.
