The thing that we love most about the Ford Mustang is that it’s incredibly accepting of aftermarket performance parts. With that said, the 2012 SEMA Show was like heaven for us with all of the amazing Mustang tuning kits that were displayed. Ringbrothers offered up one that it dubbed the Switchback and it certainly gained our interest.
As you probably expected, the most important modifications were under the hood. In here the car’s standard 5.0-liter engine was fitted with a ProCharger supercharger system with an intercooler, Flowmaster headers, Hose Candy sleeves and filled with only the best — Royal Purple fluids. Ringbrothers also installed a new 409S dual exhaust system from Flowmaster, which helped raise the Mustang GT from its already stout 430 horsepower to an extreme 575 ponies.
Because Ringbrothers needed a more aggressive look to match the extra power, it installed a carbon-fiber body kit and front splitter, plus a 2-piece modular carbon-fiber hood with an interchangeable insert. For the exterior, the folks at Ringbrothers opted for a waterborne paint combined with aluminum side vents. The car was then place on a set of 1-piece wheels sized 19 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear, and wrapped in Nitto tires sized 275/35R19 and 315/35R20, respectively.
Inside the Mustang Switchback, the changes were limited to the removal of the factory rear seats and the addition of a new custom-wrapped leather package.
With all these updates, the Mustang GT has been transformed into the real muscle car it should have been from factory!
