Want to retrofit an iPad in place of your Mustang's stock Sync-ified infotainment console? You'll need to relocate Sync to the ceiling, but with some basic carpentry skills the install is surprisingly easy.
Ford has issued a technical service bulletin for six-speed manual-equipped 2011 Ford Mustang GTs built before 4/25/2010. Seems at high engine RPM, the clutch pedal might not return from the floor after a shift. Save the manuals?
Ford has finished its "1000 Lap Challenge" with the 2011 Mustang V-6, cruising at 43 mph for 18 hours. One tank of gas, 1457 laps, and 48.5 mpg. Not bad for a 305-hp pony car.
