What do you do when your prized possession gets totaled in an intersection? Well you start all over and build a new model that's bigger and better. This is exactly what Louie Bustillos did after a wreck in his 1998 Ford Mustang. Louie Bustillos soon purchased a brand new 2009 Ford Mustang GT and began considering what he could do to beat his old pony. He had major plans in mind and wasn't going to wait to get started.

First, Louie wanted a theme for his new ride and decided to design a Drift Mustang. He loved mustangs, and he loved going into a corner hot, then downshifting and sliding through the corner in a controlled manner. According to Louie, Mustangs were made to slide. In stock condition however, you can only get so much out of the GT. The first addition to his 2009 Ford Mustang GT was K&N performance air intake 63-2565. It's mated to a BBK 62mm Throttle body and with a 125 Wet Shot Nitrous system for that extra little kick of power. This custom ride is also equipped with a Steeda under-drive pulley kit that Louie had custom painted before he installed it. Louie Bustillos' Mustang GT also has a Trufiber Hood with a custom acrylic viewing window outfitted with blue LED lights to show off the motor even on the darkest nights.

I asked Louie why he chose to use a K&N air intake for his 2009 Mustang GT. "The brand name alone speaks for itself," he explained. His confidence in K&N products was clearly evident. "I love using parts that are not only a well-known product but have been known to perform and K&N certainly meets my standards for being a product on my car. K&N is just a well-known product across the board. There is not one person I know that has not heard of K&N".

Now that the motor was purring he had to start making this modified GT a little more show worthy. He began by removing all pieces in the engine bay and having them custom painted or carbon fiber dipped. The exterior of the car was custom painted silver and blue two tone to make it stand out at shows. Louie also chose to accentuate the body of the mustang with a duraflex Cobra-R front bumper and a 3D Carbon wing. When it came to wheels Louie wanted to throw some large wheels on the mustang, but opted to stick with 18" Velocity wheels, to take advantage of the horsepower, and make the car easier to drift on the track. He then installed A thumping sound system with 2 Kicker 12" subs. Louie mated the subs to amps that push the woofers hard enough to drone out the screeching tires. A few 8" tv's were also installed just in-case Louie ever got bored at a car show.

Louie is one proud vehicle owner as he states, "My car is for me...I wanted to build my ULTIMATE ride and I have finally done it!"
