Autoline After Hours Tonight With D. Mark Trostle, Head Designer, Roush

This week we’re asking: why did Jack Roush hire a full-time designer? And, we think we’ve got the perfect man to answer that question: Roush‘s new head of design, D. Mark Trostle, a man with an impressive performance car pedigree. He’s designed such cars as the Buick GNX and Chevy SSR as well as the renowned Speed33 Roadster — so what’s going down at Roush? In addition, we’ll be discussing the news as usual. Is Toyota playing it too safe with the Camry’s new styling? Is the Cadillac Ciel concept a hint at the brand’s upcoming flagship sedan? Why are Ford and Toyota teaming up on hybrid development? To discuss all of this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by the one and only AutoextremistPeter De Lorenzo.

Our Mustang GT On The Dyno

We finally got a chance to take our Vortech Supercharged 1995 Mustang GT to Livernois Motorsports and strap it to their Dynojet dyno.  We had no idea what to expect, we just wanted to know where we were starting from.  In the end the numbers were a little under what we were hoping for, but it is still saddled with “P” heads.

Check out the video to see the run, and the results.
