2005 Ford Mustang GT - Quick Cars

Ed Melgar - Downey, CA

By , Photography by

There are a few shops in Southern California whose calls we answer on the first ring, and if they tell us they've got a car for us to see, we drop everything and drive over. One of those shops is Racers Edge Tuning in Downey, just south of Los Angeles. Owner Greg Monroe sent a brief text that went something like this: "twin turbo 3v mustang u should see." The trip to Downey wasn't a waste of time. Greg and his crew were putting the finishing touches on Ed Melgar's Mustang. Ed operates Ed's Speed Shop out of RET's front office, and this is his shop car. He bought it two years ago with the goal of building a serious, twin-turbo race car. Since these pictures were taken, Ed has made several eighth-mile passes at Irwindale, and his best e.t. so far is a 5.8 at 125 mph, the equivalent of low 9s or possibly high 8s at a quarter-mile track.
