Last week the Tjin Edition / aLL STaR Camaro brought a lot of attention to Gene Tjin’s bagged beauty, now it’s time to look at Neil Tjin’s slammed 2011 Ford Mustang GT.
Over the past 7 years, the Tjin Edition team has partnered with some of the top OEM manufacturers in the world including Chevy, Pontiac, Scion, and Honda; this year for the first time ever Tjin Edition joined forces with Ford Motor Company to produce a one of a kind Mustang 5.0 that left us wanting more!
Led by Neil, Mei, Gene, and Collin Tjin along with Adam Carpenter from Unique Fabrication in Irvine, California, the Tjin crew had their hands full as they completely transformed a brand new black 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT.
Tjin Edition teamed up with Josh Cloud from Gurnade Design Firm who was put in charge of producing the rendering for the Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT. As with all Tjin Edition projects, the Mustang 5.0 GT was completely stripped, gutted, and transformed into a truly impressive piece of automotive machinery. With the new 5.0 -V8 motor in place, it came as no surprise that Tjin Edition has teamed up with Vortech Superchargers, MagnaFlow Exhaust, American Racing Headers, Nitrous Express and Royal Purple to pump some serious HP into this little pony.
Besides the “GO” aspect of this build, the Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT will be sporting a custom DuPont Cromax Pro paint job, which was masterfully applied by Luis Rodriguez from L&R Paint and Body in Orange, California. The Webasto sunroof helped bring light in from up above.
Now it’s down to the meat and potatoes of this bagged build. The Tjin Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 GT suspension was highly modified with a brand new, fully digital air suspension kit from Air Lift, dropping this bad boy almost 4.5″ from stock ride height! The Mustang fenders are tucking a custom set of brand new 20” Forgestar CF5 (Concave Forgestar 5-spoke) wheels wrapped in Falken tires, which are mounted on top of some monster Baer Brakes.
Tjin Edition would like to thank Ford and all their amazing partners for giving them the tools and inspiration to make this dream come true, and they were excited to debut their 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT in the Air Lift Company booth at last year’s SEMA Show. If you happen to see the slammed Tjin Edition Ford Mustang GT 5.0 on the road this year at Tjin Edition RoadShow events, make sure to stop by and check it out!
